It seems Wal-Mart has sold early copies of Metal Gear Solid 4, breaking the official street date of June 12.

Hideo Kojima however, remained contemplative.

“Despite the measurements taken by any publisher, high-profile games always seem to have one store, if not more, break their legal street date,” he said.

“This had been the case with many games before Metal Gear Solid 4 and it will be the case with many following it. This week, a couple of Wal-Marts were reported to have sold the Metal Gear Solid 80GB PS3 bundles up to a week before the scheduled release of the title on June 12.”

So there you have it.
