Could Metal Gear Solid 4 be coming to PS Vita?
Four years after its release, Metal Gear Solid 4 will be updated to include Trophies. Odd timing don't you think?
Next month marks the 25th Anniversary of the tactical espionage action series and according to reports its creator, Hideo Kojima, is expected to make an announcement at an event on August 30. The announcement is supposedly related to his "vision of connecting people", which means it'll have something to do with Transfarring.
But what exactly?
For those not familiar with Kojima's hokey new concept here's a quick breakdown: Transfarring allows players to move save games between multiple devices seamlessly, allowing them to start a game on one device and continue playing it on another.
So far only Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on PS3 and PS Vita support the feature, but it could be that Konami is planning on including the feature in a PS Vita re-release of Metal Gear Solid 4.
At the Vita reveal in Japan last year Kojima showed off MGS4 running on Sony's new handheld, so we know it's possible. Could Kojima go one further next month and announce that the game is actually coming to Vita? We've got our fingers crossed.
