Metal Gear Solid 4 Finally Gets Trophy Support

Posted by Sammy Barker

Absolutely unbelievable

For as long as Trophies have existed, fans have pleaded for an updated version of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. The slick stealth title launched months before the rewards system was patched into PS3, and subsequently never supported the digital trinkets.

We’d actually given up hope on the game ever getting Trophies, but it seems we only had to wait four years. Andriasang reports that a budget version of Metal Gear Solid 4 will release with Trophies in Japan later this year. Meanwhile, those that already own the opus will be able to download a patch to unlock the online goodies in existing copies of the game.

More details are likely to be shared at a special Metal Gear Solid 25th Anniversary Event on 30th August in Tokyo. Until then, just revel in this news while you can. Unbelievable.

The best part is that they waited until AFTER they shut down the online multiplayer mode, so we shouldn't have to worry about online Trophies. :D

Man, it IS amazing that they'd actually add Trophies after all this time. If they can do it, I really don't see anything stopping others. The sales of ANY re-release of a classic game could be well improved with a Trophy patch. Patch for Tools of Destruction to coincide with a PSN release, please! Not that they will, but I can dream...
