MGS2 delayed in Europe
Konami of Europe announced today that Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty has been pushed back 2 weeks in that territory. According to Konami, retailers are demanding a first day shipment of one million copies, as there is very high demand for the game and the production of a bonus DVD that will be included. The material offers a tour through the offices of Konami Japan and interviews with the leading members of the team, including Hideo Kojima. This additional DVD will only be available in Europe, and differs from the one packaged in Japan.
"Konami of Europe feels obliged to offer the best possible product to the consumers and we also want to meet retailer's demand", said Kunio Neo, president of Konami of Europe. "Of course we're disappointed that we cannot stick to the previously stated February release date. At the same time we're also convinced that our partners and consumers will be thrilled by our package and the look behind the scenes the DVD offers for this highly anticipated game for PS2."
