Metal Gear Solid 4 will be the last of the series to be made by MGS creator Hideo Kojima. As a play off of Hideo, the theme of the new game is "No place to Hide." This does not mean that the game will no longer be stealth based.
MGS4 features a new 360 degree third-person camera view in addition to the traditional over head view in MGS games. This new camera enables better aiming in first-person view. Snake will now have a chameleon like Octocamo suit that allows him to blend in with his surroundings. However, as the theme would suggest, the game no longer requires a mission to be completed through stealth means--a player can choose the best method of accomplishing the mission.
Kojima says the PS3 will enable them to do new things in MGS4 that were not possible before. For example, the sound waves from an explosion can cause a nearby damaged building to collapse. They are also considering interactivity with the PSP.
