MGS4 Headset: GAME Exclusive In UK

After some initial confusion, it has now been confirmed that the special, limited edition Bluetooth headset especially designed for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots will release in the UK. The only caveat is that it will be sold exclusively by retailer, GAME.

You can see the advertisement over at their official site, and here's what they have to say-

"Straight from Snake’s item inventory to your living room – arm yourself with the latest in tactical espionage action technology with this Metal Gear Solid 4 licensed Bluetooth 2.0 headset from PDP. Compatible with PLAYSTATION 3® and Bluetooth compatible handsets. Ergonomic ear attachment for long wearing comfort. Built in rechargeable battery gives 8 hours talk time & 160 hours standby with 30 feet operation range. Auto power off and auto connect to last paired device. Comes with protective carrying case."

MGS4 is primed for a simultaneous worldwide release on June 12, and collectible items like these will be seriously hot sellers. This little beauty retails for £39.99, and any self-respecting MGS fan absolutely must have it, especially if they plan to play Metal Gear Online a lot. Waxing opponents in MGO is only a complete experience if you have the official MGS4 bluetooth headset...that's like a rule, or something.

If you follow the link to game.co.uk you can click to 'Englarge Image'. There you can clearly see an FCC (Federal Communications Commission) ID. Such an ID number would typically only be requested if the product were intended for sale in the United States. The FCC ID on the headset is 'NV6-CS8131'. The first three characters identify the manufacturer, in this case it's a company called 'In Tech Electronics' in Hong Kong. 'CS8131' is indeed a Bluetooth headset, but it looks nothing like the MGS Limited Edition headset. Perhaps the ID is just a placeholder, but it does suggest that this item should be available in the US.
