MGS4 Getting 80GB PS3 Bundle, MG Online getting Beta.

UPDATE: Kotaku has confirmed that the 80GB PS3 bundle is indeed backwards compatible.

Sony has just announced a Metal Gear Solid 4 Playstation 3 bundle for the launch of Konami's upcoming hit, as well as a beta for all who pre-ordered the game for Metal gear Online.

Here are the details fresh from the Playstation Blog:

"Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots PS3 Bundle
To coincide with the much-anticipated North American launch of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots in late Q2 2
008, SCEA will introduce a PS3 bundle, which will include an 80GB PS3, the upcoming blockbuster Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller for $499.99 (MSRP)."

Box Art:

If you notice, the release slates MGS4 for "Late Q2 2008."

Also, those gamers who pre-ordered Metal Gear Solid 4 will get access to the Metal gear Online beta coming in late April.

"As has been announced previously, MGS4 will include a Metal Gear Online “Starter Pack.” If you can’t wait to try out MGS4, the good news is you don’t have to much longer. Those who pre-order the game will be guaranteed access to a multiplayer beta test for Metal Gear Online scheduled for late April."

Looks like it is finally time for those of you without Playstation 3's to go out and grab one!
