Konami has announced that Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots will be released digitally on the PlayStation 3 via PSN on December 16. It will cost you $19.99 and take 30 GB of space on your hard drive.
Originally released in 2008, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is set in a battle-scarred future where huge conglomerates fight for supremacy using mercenaries. This financed battlefield is seen through the battle-weary eyes of an older Solid Snake who has been charged with infiltrating a number of key locations across the globe, including the Middle East and South America.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is confirmed for 2015, so playing through MGS 4 would be the perfect opportunity to get you excited before it launches.
