The Snake Eater (Abstracted Camouflage) Single is a limited edition single released to promote the main theme and announcement of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
It was handed out to everyone who attended Konami's panel at E3 2004 under the catalogue number KCEJ-0002. Its appearance is of a vinyl record and slip to give off a more 1960s feel since the actual game is set in the early '60s. Despite its appearance, it's not really a vinyl record, but rather a CD single in a large cardboard slip cover mimicking a record.
The song itself that appears on this single is not the original but rather a remix, this song would later re-appear on the promo album Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater - The First Bite, 6 months later. The complete lyrics and a one-sheet with liner notes were also included with this single.
The letters on the front cover (ТРИ) translates to "tri", which is Russian for three. On the back of the cover it says "Time and Time Again."
This CD single is now considered rare and a collector's item.
