Yesterday, we ran a story questioning the exclusive nature of Metal Gear Solid 4 based on comments from Konami's North American and European president. Today, any questions about the home of Metal Gear Solid 4 were firmly answered during the Sony keynote address.

Series creator Hideo Kojima announced that Metal Gear Solid 4 was exclusive to the PlayStation 3. Of course, it wasn't promised to be exclusive forever, but for now Snake's home is on the PS3.  He also announced that this was his last title, and that all of the plot twists that the series has presented over the last 20 years will be resolved in Metal Gear Solid 4. The story of Snake is almost at an end.

The trailer used in-game footage and revealed that several characters from past Metal Gear games would be making a return. Meryl Silverburgh from the original Metal Gear Solid was shown, as was Raiden. Fans of the series are already buzzing on the Internet over the return of Metal Gear Solid 2's Vamp. While the fight scene between Vamp and Raiden looked like a cut screen, if not a rendered movie, it still marks the character's return to the series and further backs up Kojima's claim that the overarching Metal Gear plot will be resolved.

The bad news for gamers drooling over the trailer is that the game has been delayed to a worldwide release in "early 2008." While this isn't the firm date that many wanted, it could mean that the end of the Solid Snake story is almost here.
