MGS3 Subsistence dated

At long last.

After wondering around in a daze for about six months having sworn it'd forgotten something, Konami arrived breathless in our inbox this morning to announce the European release date for Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence.

It's due out in October on PS2, apparently and comes on three discs, expanding the original MGS3: Snake Eater with new game modes including online options, and recreations of two MSX Metal Gear games from way-back-when - along with a three-and-a-half hour movie cobbled together from the game's cut-scenes on the third disc.

As you'll know if you've been following Subsistence, which came out in the US and Japan about 400 million years ago, this one adds in a 3D camera that Kojima Productions reckons improves gameplay enormously. So much so it'll be including it in MGS4 for PlayStation 3.

There are also new Sneaking Missions, Capture Missions, Rescue Missions, deathmatch and team deathmatch modes to play over PS2 Online.

So, not long to go. Sort of.
