'Can't say when yet.'

Metal Gear Solid will become a movie, says Hideo Kojima, but he can't say when yet.

That's according to a HIDECHAN Radio piece during which Kojima, series creator, confirmed what fans have long wanted to hear: "We're going to do it as a movie."

It's going to be in English apparently, although he wouldn't be drawn on a potential release date. "I can't say when yet," he admitted.

European confirmation.

Konami of Europe has announced that turn-based card-battling action title Metal Gear Acid will be among the games available alongside the Sony PlayStation Portable when it goes on sale this September.

And of course it gives us an excuse to link you back to our review of the US version, which should be pretty representative, and our recent interview with the game's director Shinta Nojiri, which you can find here.

Shinta Nojiri on Acid

Metal Gear Acid, that is. And the sequel.

Forget Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Acid (reviewed here) has surely been the most divisive of Konami's recent forays into the world of Solid Snake. Loved and reviled almost in equal measure, it was nothing if not fascinating, strapping card game rules to a traditional Metal Gear scenario - with player and computer actions determined by the type of cards available at any given time. Speaking to Eurogamer at E3, director Shinta Nojiri (who, along with his Kojima Productions cohorts, can lay claim to the best business cards of the show, trivia fans) spoke about the game's development, its strengths, weaknesses, and of course the sequel, which had just been announced as we went into the interview. And we couldn't resist asking which of the new console systems at the show most impressed him, although his answer might surprise you. Read on.
