“We tried running electric shock waves, install a pulse reader … we also tried to build a controller that’s receptive to the strength of the [player's] grip,” he said. “We tried a lot, even a transforming controller.”

Trophies. Metal Gear Solid 4. Never the twain shall meet. Or will they? Kojima Productions’ Sean Eyestone, speaking in this podcast, has thrown the whinging masses yet another lifeline.
Just to address one issue that we’ve been getting a lot of comments about. And this is, of course, about trophies.
I just wanna tell everybody out there right now that your voices are being heard and that we’re not ignoring you. We hear everything that you are saying. It’s just that we can’t say anything just yet.
But as soon as we have something to say, we will announce it. So, if we can just ask everyone to just be patient, we will give you an answer. But right now we can’t say anything. So we just ask for everyone’s understanding with that and just ask for everybody to remain patient and we’ll let you know.
What will you all live for when Trophies get added? It’ll be like legalising heroin: all the fun’ll be knocked out of it.
