Konami has revealed that it has been working closely with retailers to ensure that the street date of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 4 is not broken prior to its launch on June 12, confirming that retailers have supplied written agreements ensuring that the date is honoured "no matter what."
Speaking with MCV, Konami’s UK General Manager, Pete Stone, commented: "We pride ourselves on working closely with retailers and have a continuation of the singed agreement system we used so successfully before.”
"All major retailers are supplying written agreements that they will honour the street date no matter what, making it a level playing field across the board. We all want the game to be a huge success, and for everyone to benefit from this release."
Furthermore, Stone revealed that the publisher has taken steps to ensure there is enough stock to meet demand, adding, "With demand for MGS4 at such a high level, I am delighted to confirm that we are continually manufacturing stock to meet the phenomenal demand.”
“We want to make sure that everyone gets a good allocation of what is the key PS3 title of the year.”
