STORY:
Set in 2014, five years after the "Manhattan Incident" (the events of the Plant chapter from Metal Gear Solid 2), Metal Gear Solid 4 portrays a world where the restriction of military intervention on foreign soil has been eased, fueling the need for private military companies (PMCs) to f!ght proxy wars for business purposes. Nanotechnology has become prominent, both to enhance the capabilities and enforce the loyalty of mercenaries. The five largest of these PMCs are owned by a single mother company named Outer Haven, which is operated by Liquid Ocelot. Amassing an army whose manpower rivals that of the United States, Liquid prepares to launch an armed insurrection. With the world once again in crisis, a rapidly aging and disillusioned Solid Snake is deployed into the Middle East by Roy Campbell to terminate Liquid. Guns of the Patriots will take place in five locations throughout the world, including the Middle East, South America and Eastern Europe.

NEW GAMEPLAY:
Several elements from previous titles return in modified forms. Players will also use a new form of camouflage called "Octocamo", which replaces the camouflage system featured in Metal Gear Solid 3 and the Optical Camouflage seen in MGS and MGS2. Dark blue when disabled, the Octocamo suit allows the wearer to blend in with any surface within a few seconds. A new monocular device called "Solid Eye" replaces the various binoculars and image intensifiers from previous titles, and a steel drum complements the series' traditional cardboard box disguise. It is able to deflect bullets, and can be rolled to knock enemy soldiers over.

Snake will also be partnered with a robotic drone, the Metal Gear Mk. II, which allows him to communicate with other characters, in addition to the CODEC radio system from previous games. It is also capable of engaging enemies using an electric shock, as well as providing reconnaissance.[6] This drone is reminiscent of Gillian Seed's robotic sidekick Metal Gear Mk. II from the game Snatcher.

According to Ryan Payton, the game will be filled with cut-scenes that explain what happened in Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, and 3, and then Portable Ops, how that relates to MGS4, and how that relates to the final chapter of Solid Snake. Players will be able to choose whether to view these scenes by pressing the circle button on their controller when prompted. Although informative enough to excite the hardcore fans of the series, the cut scenes will be straight forward enough for mainstream gamers. Players will have the choice of watching the cut scenes from predetermined camera angles or exploring them with the Metal Gear Mk. II.

Snake's health will play some factor during gameplay. If injured on the battlefield, cuts and burns will remain on his skin. However, the developers wish to avoid putting the stress of Snake's health to the players, so he wears a muscle suit, allowing players to move in a similar fashion to previous games.

Other changes that were announced included the new "Psyche Meter" which will replace the stamina meter from previous Metal Gear games, and the "Baseline Map" which is a radar map with a dynamically resized circle based on Snake's "presence" to the environment

Official PS3 MGS4 Bundle. MSRP $499.99. Release Date 6-12-08.
... Includes 80gb PS3, MGS4 Standard Edition, and a Dual Shock 3 controller.

Metal Gear Online (MGO), the multiplayer experience that combines the rich Metal Gear Solid universe with online combat, returns exclusively for the PLAYSTATION®3!

MGO carries over the backdrop and control system of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (MGS4) to original online maps and game modes, with future downloadable expansion packs (planned to be released after official service begins) adding additional maps, characters, and other features.

Among the new components this time around are battles featuring up to 16 players, and the SOP System, allowing for enhanced squad communication. Close cooperation is essential to survival on the battlefield!

Why play MGO?

MAPS
In addition to all-new environments, journey back to classic locales from the original MGO and MGS games. Forthcoming expansion packs take the action to even more diverse battlegrounds!


MODES
New game rules join online staples like deathmatch, Team deathmatch, and Capture Mission!

COMMUNICATION
Expect a multitude of communication features, an essential component of any online game. From the all-encompassing SOP system to a deep support network bringing players closer together off the battlefield, MGO has you covered!

SOP SYSTEM
The SOP System allows you to visually share information among your squad by linking your internal nanomachines. Information like your teammates' positions, status, and even who they're engaging with will all be provided to you in real-time. It also works through walls, letting you identify individuals by their digital silhouette.

Gain the upper hand by scanning your enemy team's link and share their information with your comrades.

In this MGO, intercommunication and adaptive teamwork decide the outcome!

MESSAGING AND CHAT
Also included is keyboard chat and voice chat support.

Of course, MGO's trademark preset Codec messages are back as well!

FRIEND REGISTRATION, MAIL, SNS
On the battlefield, you need somebody watching your back. No more flying solo. Now thanks to MGO's easy-to-use Friend Registration system, it's easy to send friend invites to people you've fought alongside with. And keep in touch with your new comrades outside of the game using our mail and SNS communication systems.

Who is in MGO?


Your first task after enlisting is to create your MGO alter ego. Design your own unique character from dozens of possible combinations, and keep an eye out for additional gear updates!

In the new MGO, combat gets an upgrade from a maximum of 8 to now 16 players -- trusted allies in team games, or heated rivals in solo play! The more players on the ground, the more intense the action.

How can I play MGO?
MGO is made up of a starter pack and expansion packs.

Included with MGS4, the starter pack offers players a first bite of what awaits in the new MGO, while various expansion packs (planned to be released periodically after official service begins) will add additional maps, characters, and other features.

Details of the expansion pack release schedule will be announced at a later date.


The MGO starter pack contains 5 maps in addition to the match rules and communication features fundamental to MGO.

whats the difference between LE and regular? I had LE GTA ordered but I switched that back to regular when I preordered this (regular edition also). I'm thinkin I might switch GTA back to LE but I'm not sure. Which is the better LE because I'm only getting one.
