MGS4 Euro box art is legit, says German guy


A chap called Norman Gerlach, who works for PS3-Talk.de, has passed on an email from German press agency neu:kom which seems to confirm the legitimacy of the European MGS4 box art that popped up this week. The image was attached to the email.

Thanks for that, Norman. You can find the mail and a machine translation after the link.

As the note says, the Japanese and US box designs will be different. You can see what appears to be the American one on Amazon.com.

Original email

Hallo und guten Tag,

Wir möchten darauf hinweisen, dass die Packshots für Japan und die USA anders aussehen.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots für PLAYSTATION 3 erscheint weltweit am 12. Juni.

Grüße von
