Industrial action delays MGS4 in Spain

Konami's PS3 exclusive caught up in transport strike

Konami's release of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has been delayed in Spain due to industrial action.

The PlayStation 3 exclusive has been released worldwide today, with launch events held in Osaka, New York and London.

"Although the official launch globally is June 12, 2008, the product will be unavailable this week in Spain due to the transport strike," said the company in a statement.

Konami said it would update consumers on when the game will go on sale as soon as possible.
