Live from the Metal Gear Solid 4 launch party

Recommended Videos

Outside Best Buy, on a warm summer night, Metal Gear fans are waiting to purchase the conclusion to Solid Snake's saga. Below is a picture of the front of the line. The queue wraps around Best Buy ending at a fence past the parking garage.

There aren't many cosplayers out here. I saw one person dressed up as Snake and a person in a cardboard box pictured below.

OK let's take a look inside the private party area…

 

There are a couple PlayStation 3s running Metal Gear Solid 4 available to everyone, but most people at the party aren't interested in playing the game now. A reasonable choice since it's not the kind of game you want to play in public. I mean everyone is going to go home in a few hours and play it anyway.
