If you live in Los Angeles or New York, you're in luck--legendary game designer Hideo Kojima will be signing copies of Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker
for fans. The tour starts in Japan but will make it to New York and LA on June 11th and 13th, respectively. Sony's really making this one of the last big launches of the PSP, and from what I've seen Peace Walker in an incredibly ambitious game. It'll also be interesting to see how this event leads up to E3 only a couple days later. One thing's for sure, Kojima-san is in for a busy week.
