    I was going to add this to the MGS4 thread but since it encompases all MGS and some people aren't looking at our MGS4 thread to avoid spoilers, I thought I'd mention this one it's own.

    Sounds like a really awesome freebie.

    It deals with MGS4 also but it reads your Game Save, so it knows how far you are and makes spoilers unselectable.

    I heard about it tonight on PS3 fanboy or joystiq andd I'm looking forward to it to help compeltely catch me up on the series, seeing as this is my first metal gear game. I'm still planning on picking up MGS 2 and 3. Already got 1.

    Windy, glad you posted it here cause I would have never heard about it. I am avoiding the MGS4 thread because of spoilers. Things are a little tight now and I will not be getting MGS4 for a few weeks. Plus with HTS getting animated next week my preorder will be putting a hurting on my gaming income for the month.

    Even if it doesnt, you can always create a US account, put some random address and info and download it that way. I stole the "Everyone's Golf" Demo from the UK store way before we ever got one here. And I have the Siren Demo from the Japanese store.

    Actually, gonna wait as it actively gives you in-game items for MGS4, I think this one gives you another podcast and music track for the iPod.

    Seriously, we are witnessing history being made in interactive media... that is awesome, I didn't know about that.

    I was telling my Denmark visitor last night about home, and how it was free, and that if you wanted crazy furniture or things like that, you could pay, and we both agreed that we probably wouldn't pay for extras, until we started thinking... "what if you could deck your entire apartment with Metal Gear elements. A Huge Snake Stand on the corner, Guns lining the walls...It would Scan your HD and know what bosses you defeated and put trophies of them along your wall... And you could walk around Home like Snake.... Then we thought, "ok, maybe I would pay for that." Just not a lot.

    That kind of shit has been part of the thinking behind Home from day one. Look for Insomniac and Naughty Dog leading the charge heavily on this one.
