Decrypting and images in Konami Metal Gear Solid website countdown teaser
posted @ 6:25 am in [ Flash -Games -PS3 ]

We reverse engineered the Flash files on the new Konami Metal Gear Solid website countdown teaser, and found there are two images in the upcoming day countdowns showing both the main character (Solid?) and Raiden from Metal Gear 4.

Also, there are more letters revealed if you go through each of the separate hidden countdown timers as below (letters are shown in order of display within the Flash file)
