Konami’s critically-acclaimed Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots will finally be getting Trophy support – four years after its initial release.
Creator Hideo Kojima confirmed the news himself during a chinwag with Famitsu magazine, where he revealed Trophies will ship out of the box in the upcoming ‘PlayStation 3 The Best’ edition of the stealth title.
However, those of you who already own the game will be able to download a patch to implement this feature. A launch date for the patch has yet to be determined, though we’ll keep you posted.
Elsewhere, Kojima-san confirmed that a special Metal Gear Solid 25th Anniversary event will be hosted on August 30 in Tokyo Midtown. The event will apparently play host to an announcement pertaining to Kojima-san’s vision of producing a game that connects people.

Great news! I can't wait to revisit my favourite game of all time... and finally be able to get trophies for it like every other game!

Yup, awesome news indeed mate. I didn't honestly expect this to happen since it's been four years; I remember Konami talking about it in 2009, but nothing ever came of it. Cheers, Kojima-san!

Not getting hyped until they're on my XMB, they said they were coming about 2 years ago and never did.

We could have used this BEFORE Metal Gear Online went away! Would have helped it hold on for a few more years maybe, who knows.
Anyway, I'm all over this.
