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.

This ‘formula’ is accompanied by the strap line: “A Next Metal Gear Is...”

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.
