Mobile application security vulnerability report

Konami has offered a glimmer of hope to Xbox 360 gamers who’ve cried into their pillows because Metal Gear Solid 4 is a PlayStation 3 exclusive.

The site shows, in the Xbox 360’s customary electronic green hue, a curious ‘formula’ that includes a lowercase letter 'i' and an exclamation mark. A symbol that looks strikingly similar to the Microsoft console’s power button is also shown.

Nothing else is known about the website, although part of its URL contains the text “mgst”. Could that stand for “Metal Gear Solid Teaser”? Or are we reading too much into it?

Decide for yourself here.
