Somewhere out there someone has broken the worldwide street date for Metal Gear Solid 4
Posts have appeared from a gamer going by the name of Paul-H-UK who claims to have a copy of the game in his possession and has photos to prove it. He's posted numerous pictures over in the official PlayStation Forums of the game in various states of undress, including images of it playing on a TV.
Quite where the game came from is something of a mystery. Paul-H-UK says he got it from eBay. From the packaging it appears to be an Australian copy, carrying an Australian MA 15+ label.
Whatever the origins of the copy, however, it looks like someone somewhere has broken the worldwide release date of June 12th.
