We’ll be getting a brand new Metal Gear Solid 4 database application on the PlayStation Store today.

The database is an official application that has everything you could ever imagine you would want to know about the series of games, which is perfect for those that might not have played the last few, as there’s definitely a lot of back story to learn about.

The database will feature information on storylines, relationship diagrams, character profiles and suchlike and as a great bonus; it’s clever enough to know whether you’ve finished MGS4 or not yet, meaning you won’t be reading horrible spoilers.

There’s also free downloadable content on the database, with new camo for Snake already and some music for your iPod. More downloadable bits will be added to the database in time.

Metal Gear Solid 4 is out now, head over to the game hub for previews, news screenshots and loads more.
