[Update: Andriasang has confirmed that the August patch will grant full install support.]

It looks like the cat is out of the bag regarding the August Metal Gear Solid 4 trophy patch, but that's not all that's coming in terms of functionality. It seems as if Konami has confirmed that you are now able to fully install the game onto your PS3's HDD, meaning you don't have to constantly be jerked around and installing bits and pieces as you go.

The problem is that Konami hasn't confirmed this as a function of the patch itself, only as a feature of the "best" budget version of the game, coming to retail around the same time in August.

As someone who has a save file before every boss in the game, not having to constantly re-install every chapter separately will be a God-send. I just hope it comes in the form of a patch, as one lone feature will be a hard sell for a double-dip.

Destructoid review: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Metal Gear Solid 4 has been a long-awaited title. We first heard word back in 2005, and drama has only built up from there. It's been touted by PS3 owners as a reason to own the system, and then claimed to be coming to the 36...more

"If I'm not looking through a viewfinder, I'm looking through a window. Always looking." Max Caulfield, the introspective protagonist of Life is Strange, spends her life searching, observing. Actually, it might be more akin t...more

Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Havoc

Call of Duty map packs are definitely a mixed bag. Fifteen dollars is pricey by any standards, and the prospect of one or two remade maps and a grand total of four arenas isn't anything to get excited about. Advanced Warfare's new Havoc DLC has just arrived this week on Xbox platforms, and it's par for the course in terms of what you'd expect. As usual though, zombies save the day.more

Review: Dying Light

As you may have heard, we got our Dying Light review code pretty late. As in, the day before launch. A late show doesn't necessarily instill confidence in a project, especially since a lot of fans had no idea what to expect from Techland's latest. It's strange that this situation even happened considering Dying Light is one of Techland's best games outside of Call of Juarez: Gunslinger.more
