While in Tokyo, our man in the street, Adam Sessler, had the opportunity to get behind the scenes at Famitsu one of the largest gaming magazines in Japan. Why not take a few moments to share the wisdom the man uncovered? In other words, watch the video to see what transpired.
Tokyo Game Show
Metal Gear Solid 4 is one of those games that's gathering a pretty significant amount of buzz these days, and it was at Tokyo Game Show for all to see, including one Mr. Adam Sessler, who got to play it, and brought back the footage to prove it.
Check it out, Snake fans.
Kojima Production's Ryan Payton has confirmed that they are currently working on an English version of the playable Metal Gear Solid 4 demo that was at TGS 07.
"As of tomorrow, we're going to start working on the English demo," said Payton. "But whether you'll be able to experience it, that's open for debate, open for speculation. Hopefully I can make an announcement about that soon, but right now, the focus is on making the English version."
TheFeed hopes this means that the demo will be released on the PSN for all to enjoy. It could also be for the upcoming E For All Expo, which is open to the public. Or maybe even as a pack-in for a new PS3 game.

Square Enix is good at making RPGs, but only really good at selling them in Japan.
Franchises like Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest sell like hot cakes over there, but don't sell as well as they could in the US.
To help boost sales here in the states, Square Enix is looking for a US-based publishing partner to help market and sell their games.
Genius game creator Hideo Kojima dropped important word on Metal Gear Solid 4 over the weekend at the Tokyo Game Show in the form of in-depth booklet given out to the faithful at Konami's booth.
Along with much discussion of the game's storyline, Kajima gave some good news and some bad news.
- The good news: Metal Gear Online will be included with Metal Gear Solid 4. "We often get asked whether Metal Gear Solid 4 and Metal Gear Solid Online will be sold separately," said Kojima. "Metal Gear Solid Online will be included in Metal Gear Solid 4, in the form of a 'Starter Pack.' Once the service launches, it'll keep on going with additional new stages, new rules, and so on. So in the end, MGSO will outlast MGS4."
- This is really and truly the last appearance of Solid Snake ever. . "Solid Snake's story is really going to end in MGS4," explained Kojima in the booklet. "Using cloning [as a plot device] was really cheating. I wouldn't be working on [MGS4] if I thought there was a sequel…" That doesn't mean there won't be any more Metal Gear games, however. "As long as there's a game called MGS5 and it's a game where you sneak around, it doesn't have to be Solid Snake, right? I'd like that to be created by the younger developers," he said. "To put it another way, Solid Snake is one character that I don't want to entrust to other people."
