MGS4 Headset Confirmed For June 12
UPDATE: Looking closer at the spec-sheet of the unit, it seems like the headset is fake. Read our update to the story detailing the evidence we've found to support our belief. - Arnold.
At first, it was believed that what you're seeing here was fake. It's a Metal Gear Solid 4 headset, designed specifically for Konami's upcoming smash. Most fans were delighted to see it, but Kotaku initially stated the earlier report was false, and that the design simply wouldn't be coming to market.
But they've recently reversed that idea, and have now confirmed it's already popping up in retail databases across the US and Europe. This little gem will cost you $60, and it will provide 8 hours of communication time, a 30ft range, and a handy-dandy auto-shut-off function to save precious battery life. As an added bonus for all you MGS faithful out there, the headset will even come with its own carrying case, emblazoned with the same Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots logo. It will go on sale on June 12, which is the exact release date for the highly anticipated game. Some may call it fanservice but most will just love the idea of heading into Metal Gear Online with exactly the right hreadset.
We're only hoping this isn't the "very special surprise" we're supposed to see today on the PlayStation blog concerning MGS4. While this little unit is cool and all, we're expecting something a tad more significant...
