Konami's acclaimed 2008 PlayStation 3 action game Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots will be released on the PlayStation Network on December 16. This is notable because it represents the first time the game has been made available digitally for the console. The game will sell for $20 on PSN.

Guns of the Patriots for PSN will weigh in at 30 GB. The game was originally released in June 2008, garnering a perfect 10/10 score from GameSpot.

"It's likely you will emerge awestruck from your first play-through, wishing the experience would continue yet nonetheless satisfied with its conclusion," we wrote at the time. "It's difficult not to sound hyperbolic when discussing MGS4 because every part of its design seemingly fulfills its vision, without compromise. There is no halfway." Read the full review.

The next entry in the Metal Gear Solid series is 2015's Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. On the more immediate horizon, Konami will show off the latest edition of Metal Gear Online this Friday night during The Game Awards. We'll have that footage for you as soon as it becomes available.
