MGS4 Extended Ending In 6 Weeks?

Konami can't expect the fans to forget, can they?

Not long after the launch of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots on June 12 of this year, the big rumor was that Konami would provide gamers with a new extended ending exactly six months after the initial release. Now, as we move on into November, the fans realize that the 6-month span will be up in 6 weeks, and the rumor has returned. We don't wish to spoil the ending if you haven't yet finished MGS4 (and if so, shame on you), but let's just say there's a reason behind the 6-month idea, and why an extended ending would make a great deal of sense. Currently, the popular theory is that Konami will release a patch containing this new ending on December 12, which - we assume - you would download and simply watch if you've already beaten the game. Of course, Konami remains tight-lipped on the situation, which is only going to add fuel to the fire.

So the question is, do you think this extended ending is on the way, or does Konami have something else up their sleeves? Or, and this is just as possible, everyone is reading too much into that ending and hoping for more MGS4 goodness before 2008 is out. For our part, we'll just be interested in whatever Kojima decides to do next. Plain and simple.

hopefully it'll be like an epilogue DLC mission rather than another cutscene alone...but i'll take either one.

Just throwing this out there, refrain from posting spoilers about MGS4.

Damn because I think I know what they would show as the extended ending too. But in order to say it I would have to spoil something.

But: I believe they are going to release what was supposed to happen with the original ending to MGS4.

Well, there's been talk of another MGO expansion coming out soon (Meme Expansion I think it's called), so I imagine that it would coincide with a new ending and possibly more playable content for MGS4 itself. That's just a guess though.

Yeah, MGS4 had a nice story. Can't wait for MGS5. I'm guessing the next one will be Metal Gear Raiden and it will show how Raiden became the cyborg ninja after MGS2.PilarVIRUS, that is a nice avatar pic. Who is he and what game is he from? Haven't seen you here in a long time.

SackboyJak the avatar PilarVIRUS has used looks like the guy from the game Red Dead Revolver, either that or Gun but I think its more Red Dead.

Anything more Metal Gear Solid 4 related is good be it another cutscene or a different ending, bring it on I say.

Wow. Didn't even know about this. Let's hope it's worth it... but knowing Konami, I don't think we have to worry. Would be great tho if there were some gameplay elements along side it as well... and not just hitting x or L1 to get another glimpse of the video lol.

Whoa, this is exciting. Maybe the extended ending will finally explain the UFOs showing up at the end and why Snake was riding on a dolphin during the credits. ;)

All kidding aside, though, I hope this pans out. I'd LOVE more MGS.

trophies along with an extended ending would be cool and six months is more than enough time to make a patch for both of them im sure. if not then anything new about anything metal gear is fine by me.

trophies would be good but after completing a game? hmm? i downloaded paradise's trophy patch while i had my B licence and i didn't get the trohpies for any of the previous licences. and have been doing so little challenges have not yet got my A licence. i hope that when i get it i will get my trohpies for al previous licences.
anyways, this is alround good news. more mgs4. that is my kindof stuff.
