PSXE Certainly Not Confirming State Of MGS4 Review Copies
Woah, woah, WOAH.
It seems that a very simple answer I gave to a very simple question has been misinterpreted. So before everybody freaks right out about this, we're going to clear it all up right now:
It seems that someone in the MGS Forums said Eurogamer and EDGE didn't have final review copies of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and they still issued a review score for the game. People are all up in arms about this, and someone e-mailed me to - evidently - verify if this were true. But as you can see in the e-mail so conveniently displayed up there, I make no mention of EDGE or Eurogamer because it wasn't part of the question. We have no idea if Eurogamer or EDGE has review copies of MGS4; we don't know what they have, and we're not about to comment on another site's business. All I know is that we don't have the review copy yet; all copies don't go to all publication sources at the same time. We also aren't about to comment on what Konami is doing for review copies, despite certain comments from Ryan Payton.
We are not making any general statements regarding the availability of MGS4 copies for review for other sources. How anyone can even glean that from the answer I provided to a straightforward question is beyond me. We're not positive when we'll be seeing the review copy; we usually get them a day or two before release, and that's all we can speculate on at this point. We're not "confirming" anything.
