News From Japan: 04/06/08

Firstly, as if you ever doubted it, Metal Gear Solid IV has been awarded 40/40 from Famitsu, with straight 10s across the board. The reviewers mention that there’s a massive amount of quality gaming in there, and long time fans will find much to enjoy. In addition, Metal Gear Online is a great addition to the main story. One reviewer says the game has no weak points whatsoever.

Afrika is expected out on the 28th of August, for 5,980 Yen. The player assumes, as we thought, the role of a photographer in Africa.


Finally, Japan will also get a PlayStation Eye Pack, due on the 24th of July. For 5,000 Yen the pack includes the PlayStation Eye and new title Memoushon, which is a compilation of six games and applications, including the ability to make images and sound (think: EyeCreate) and a couple of puzzle games.
