Hideo Kojima, the director of the critically acclaimed Metal Gear Solid franchise, may just be the king of social media. The auteur is clearly getting bored now that he doesn't get to play dress up anymore, so he's decided to bombard his official online accounts with a veritable gold mine of tantalizing teases. And really, who needs an actual game when we have the portentous provocateur's jam-packed Twitter feed to peruse?

The most recent development has seen the luminary post a series of pictures of the various console SKUs that have been used to promote his games, including the jungle camo PlayStation Portable and gun metal PlayStation 3. He ended this recap by dropping a hint which demonstrated all of the subtly that's to be expected from a man who's made a career out of directing games about an old guy who hides inside a cardboard box. "After all, I wonder if you want a limited edition?" he teased. "[SONY] × [PS4] × [MGS GZ] collaboration initiative is in progress. More information at a later date."

If we don't see some sort of limited edition version of the next-gen system to commemorate the incoming Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, this reporter will eat his decorative military beret. Are you getting sick of Kojima's incessant Twitter tirades? Would you be interested in a gun metal PS4? Devour a ration in the comments section below.
