Metal Gear Solid 4 Launch

June 24, 2008 at 7:56 am (Hollywood Store) (, , , , )

Around 800 gaming fans waited outside our Virgin Megastore in Times Square overnight for our launch of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots for Playstation 3. It was great to see the enthusiasm they all came into the store with for the special midnight signing session with creator Hideo Kojima. The event was extremely exciting as Hideo made his grand entrance down the escalators to the theme song of MGS4. Hideo handpicked the Virgin Megastore Times Square for this special launch and signing and we’re glad he did!

Fans were also treated with the appearance by actress Yumi Kikuchi, who was motion-captured for the game. Yumi joined Hideo on the stage and signed autographs until 2:00AM meeting eager and excited fans. It was a blast for our employees…as well as the fans. We love the energy that gamers bring to our events!

Here are couple of pictures below – in case you didn’t make it out.
