This comes as exciting news to me!  Apparently Konami confirmed a rumor going around of an iPhone/iPod Touch version of Metal Gear Solid.

The game is to be set in the MGS4 universe, and will consist of 8 stages. (where the developers promise to expand the game overtime)

Controls are obviously going to utilize the touch interface of the devices.  Features like zooming in to snipe will use the same type of gesture users would use to zoom in with other applications.

Expected release date is to be sometime in Spring 2009.
