Konami has poured cold water over rumours pointing to the release of an expansion for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots next month.
Reports have been circulating this week of plans to release a downloadable content pack containing an alternate ending for the stealth action sequel, which is supposedly due for release this side of Christmas.
However, speaking to CVG today, Konami denied all plans to offer any form of DLC for Snake’s swansong epic, stating, "There are no plans to expand Metal Gear Solid 4."
All is not lost, however, as gamers still have the Metal Gear Online MEME expansion to look forward to later this month.

Thats a downer:( but at least we have Resistance 2 etc. to keep us happy.

Presumably Konami are too busy deciding how to spend the giant wedge of cash that M$ are waving under their nose to release a 10 DVD box set of MGS4 for X360 ... don't say it didn't cross your mind ;p

if it would be possible a MGO expansion by via PS STORE that would be great.
but still wats the point? there isnt any pre-payed psn cards around here....
i like to pay with safe money.

psn id: gingo... i was perfectly happy with the original ending so i'm glad they have not made an alternate one

haha the wedding and no snake, and the dude with the kid, classic. Snake rules. MGS4 was one of the best games I ever played... ever

it would have had some gameplay and more film probably. i'd just want them to start working on MG 5

its funny how Konami jump on this rumours and killed them off as fast as they can but they still havent killed off all the rumours about mgs4 going to 360

Why have an alternate ending to MGS4, that would be just stupid. It would then be obvious that they would make something like MGS5 which I personally don't want to see. I like when games end at a certain point it shows that they wont be milking the MGS series with snake anymore.

That's exactly what I was thinking lol

All I'm asking for is Trophy support!!! Please make MGO compatible with the regular PSN friends list. I do not like that system Konami created. That's why I don't play MGO.

Remember those preveiw videos of MGS4 early, ages ago? Like it had Snake infiltrate a circle of chairs? I'd like to see Kojima make some mock up videos again! :P
Assassins Gear Solid agan? :P

I just hope that now that we can have DLC, they dont try and fleece us with a full BR release of whatever 'Subsistence' or 'Substance' they do for MGS4 - although I fear that Konami's corporate approach will be as backward as their online approach.

Hmm, I won't lie, I am pretty dissapointed. Not that I ever really expected this to be true. I loved the original MGS4 ending but more can't hurt!
