taken from ign:

May 13, 2008 - Metal Gear Solid 4 is getting some major collaborations as revealed today at Konami's MGS4 Completion Ceremony in Japan. But for western gamers, perhaps none of the product tie-ins are as big as Assassin's Solid.

First shown as an elaborate April Fools joke on... well, on April 1st, of course, it turns out that you will be able to actually play as Solid Snake in an Altair costume from Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed. Specifics on how you get the costume weren't revealed at the event, but director Hideo Kojima did say that you'll have to do something special.

Konami also handed out first official artwork and a screenshot for the costume. We've posted the media below, but we'll remind you that you've probably looking at a video trailer of this for well over a month.

heres a link to the article here. (http://ps3.ign.com/articles/873/873462p1.html)

that's awesome in too many ways. i wonder if it will actually effect the gameplay or anything (special powers like the boss camo's from MGS3?)

i bet it will require something assassin-related, like not getting noticed or getting a lot of quick kills or something. MGS unlockables tend to be almost impossible to get, or require you to do something really repetitive throughout the game (like getting ALL the foods in MGS 3 or collecting ALL the dogtags in 2, or the ghost photos in 1...)

I wonder if this means that Metal Gear skins will be made available for the multi-player aspects of Creed. I could so go for running around Acre as the Raiden cyborg
