Metal Gear Solid 4’s Protagonist to Sport iPod


iSnake, anyone? Metal Gear Solid 4‘s release will be accompanied with much fanfare – and apparently, heavy in-game advertising.

Snake will have access to an in-game iPod to change the game’s background music to selections found in the game and downloaded from the web.

Also planned for inclusion, at least for the Japanese version, are: Regain energy drinks, a Sony Ericsson cell phone and Triumph motorcycles. The drinks will also be sold in stores in special bottles leading up to the game’s June release.

Other collaborations include T-shirt and cell phone game deals.

Konami itself will launch novels and a 47-track soundtrack of the game, as well a digital comic.
