The Kojima Productions Event Site 2007 was a flash website used by Kojima Productions. As the name implies, it was a website dedicated to various events they were involved in during the 2007 year. Specifically, E3, Leipzig Games Convention, Tokyo Game Show, and, more importantly, the Metal Gear 20th Anniversary Party. It's last update was on September 20, 2007.

The main index had two models of Metal Gear REX and RAY, plus two signs near the two models, and a Naked Snake Olive Drab Fatigues Kubrick toy that lists the events being covered on the page (specifically, the E3 Media and Business Summit, Sony Japan Press Event, the MG20th Anniversary Party, the GC Games Convention, and the Tokyo Game Show.). The Metal Gear REX sign takes the user over to the English page, while the Metal Gear RAY sign takes the player over to the Japanese page.

On the main page, depending on which language option the user chose earlier, the webpage will vary slightly. Overall, however, it will feature a billboard have four sets of sticky-notes, each representing the events covered on the page. The far left sticky note covered the E3 2007 event. The center left set of sticky notes covered the Metal Gear 20th Anniversary Party, and is the only set of sticky notes to be clicked en-masse instead of individually. The center right covered GC 2007, with individual sticky notes allowing the user to access, from top to bottom, the Metal Gear Online section, the Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots section, or the third section covering the opening of the official website for Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus. On the far right section covers TGS 2007, which two sets of sticky notes, one covering TGS itself, and the other being an announcement regarding the release of the Metal Gear Solid 4 Integrated website, as well as a pinned card noting Konami's TGS 2007 schedule. The sticky notes slightly vary depending on the site setting. On the English section, the 20th Anniversary Party section will only note the news relating to Metal Gear Solid 4 (including the demonstration, character renders, and screencaps), Metal Gear Online and Portable Ops Plus (with highlights noted for both including the main visual and screenshots), while the TGS section only mentions on the first sticky MGS4 and MGO. On the Japanese site, the former stickies also proceeded to note that there were sections dedicated to Metal Gear Solid 2: Bande Dessinée and Metal Gear Solid Mobile, with the third also mentioning simply that Metal Gear Online and Portable Ops Plus have screenshots, and that Bande Dessinee had screencaps and a trailer, and Mobile had screencaps, and the latter stickies note the presence of Bande Dessinee. Aside from these bits, there is also a non-interactive photograph of Makuhari, Tokyo, as well as an image link to either the KP Report (English site) or Hide-Chan Radio (Japanese site), as well as non interactive items on the left and right side of the screen. Namely, a FOX/Kojima Productions emblem near the top right, a Snake vs. Zombie comic book on the lower right side, three key arts for Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater on the upper left side (partially obscured by the E3 sticky), desk memorabilia on the right side that included two picture frames containing some Portable Ops badges (with only the one closest to the TGS 2007 sticky set being made out as having a white, blue, red, and yellow badge each), a Kubrick toy depicting Naked Snake in his Olive Drab fatigues, and a bronze Yamato Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty Solid Snake Trading figure, and a "bookshelf" containing a Metal Gear RAY model, a "newspaper" for E3 with the headline "E3 ShowMaybe?" and the subtitle "Kojima Productions Presents" with a headline photo of Cyborg Ninja Raiden, and a stack of games that included four copies of Metal Gear Acid 2 (with three differing jackets), a copy of Metal Gear Acid, a copy of Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, and two unidentifiable PSP jackets.

E3 2007

The E3 section contained the PlayStation Premiere trailer for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, as well as 11 teaser screencaps and 3 sets of key artwork for the game depicting Old Snake and Vamp (the former twice). The section for E3 2007 had the tagline "Better Late than Never", which referenced the delays Metal Gear Solid 4 experienced.

Metal Gear 20th Anniversary Party

Depending on the language setting of the overall site, the contents for the 20th Anniversary Party section will vary. On the English site, it has three sections: The Metal Gear Solid 4 section, the Metal Gear Online section, and the Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus section. The Metal Gear Solid 4 section had five character renders (depicting Old Snake, the Metal Gear Mk II, Vamp, a full body render of EVA, and a facial render of EVA), 14 teaser screencaps, and a playable demonstration for Metal Gear Solid 4. The Metal Gear Online section, likewise, only had 9 teaser screencaps and one key art. The Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus section, finally, had the PlayStation Premiere trailer for the game, plus 12 teaser screencaps and one key art.

The Japanese version of the site's section was the same overall, although it had two additional sections dedicated to Metal Gear Solid 2: Bande Dessinée and Metal Gear Solid Mobile. The former section detailed the 20th Anniversary trailer revealing it, plus 10 teaser screencaps, two teaser artworks for portions within the Digital Graphic Novel, and a brief blurb on IDW Publishing. The latter simply had screencaps (which depicted five cell phones, each with a differing screencap of the game).

GC 2007

The section included revealing new screenshots for Metal Gear Online via a slide projector (9 screencaps total), a trailer and 10 screencaps (the latter of which utilized a slide projector) for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, plus a group artwork for the then-recently announced Beauty and the Beast Unit as well as 8 images depicting the real life model templates for each of the Beauty forms of the B&B Corps members (which the player can switch between by toggling the photograph to be Beast or Beauty) with two images for each motion actress, and an announcement stating that the official Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus website was up and running, which itself acted as a hyperlink to the official site.

TGS 2007

Main article: Tokyo Game Show

The first section, depending on the site setting, will have either two sections or three. The English site has a image stating that the Integrated site for Metal Gear Solid 4 is up and running, with clicking on it leading to the webpage in question. The image depicted Old Snake crouching as well as a brief glimpse of the Octocamo and Solid Eye, while the second section covered Metal Gear Online, which included the TGS 2007 trailer, plus 17 new screencaps for the game. Unlike the other sections for screencaps, this screencap section does not drag a set of photos and then pin them to the billboard to access them. Instead, it utilizes the same projector slide animation used for GC 2007. For the Japanese version, in addition to the above, there is also a section for Bande Dessinee that covered the TGS 2007 trailer.
