Confirmed: Metal Gear Solid 4 playable at E For All

Are you guys done hating on E For All yet? First it was revealed that the event would be the world premiere of a playable version of Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Wii, and you guys went nuts. IDG’s Carolyn Rauch promised there would be “news,” and she wasn’t just blowing smoke.

From what we’re told, there will be two “Game Stages” at E For All, and each will have kiosks available for people to play games separate from what is happening at individual booths out on the floor. Each day of the show will showcase different games (tentative schedule after the jump); but the big news is that Konami’s Metal Gear Solid 4 will indeed be playable on Friday, October 19. The times confirmed are for VIP early access only (which is set aside for those who purchased tickets early); it’s unclear at this time whether or not the game will be playable at Konami’s booth, as well.

While we can’t say whether it will be a newer or different build than the one that I failed so miserably at during this year’s Tokyo Game Show, this is going to be a great opportunity for fans to get their hands on dirty old Solid Snake.

This schedule is accuarate as of October 10, but is subject to change without notice: 

THURSDAY
11AM – Guitar Hero 3
12PM – THQ’s WWE Smackdown
1PM – Activision’s Tony Hawk Proving Ground (demo only; not playable) AND Guitar Hero 3
2PM – TBD

FRIDAY
11AM – Konami’s Metal Gear Solid 4

SATURDAY

10AM – THQ’s WWE Smackdown

SUNDAY
10AM – Activision’s Tony Hawk Proving Ground (demo only; not playable)
AND Guitar Hero 3
