Konami has confirmed to Eurogamer that the new date for Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops will be 25th May.

It was due to be released last Friday but was sent back by retailers as it was missing the required BBFC rating.

We're still clueless as to why this was overlooked, so we invented our own reasons. The strongest and most compelling of these was that Tom took it, or had a large part to play in it.

But it's all turned out well in the end, because MGS: Portable Ops is one of the best games the PSP has. Head over to our Portable Ops review to find out why.
