This year Konami is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Metal Gear, arguably the most revolutionary game series released on the MSX computer platform. Not despite, but specifically due to the limitations of the MSX2 computer a different game genre appeared: tactical espionage. It's not a secret that Kojima has not forgotten about MSX, the platform that stood at the basis of his success. He is known to tweet frequently about MSX and of course MSX could not go overlooked with the celebration of the 25th anniversary.

On his twitter account he revealed a special MSX flavored T-Shirt that is now being sold in the UNIQLO fashion stores. Fortunately for those unable to visit these stores in Japan they can also be ordered online at Kid Samurai. The T-shirts contain two pictures Solid Snake and the classic dialog snippet where Big Boss orders you to turn off your MSX.
