"Highly Limited Edition" MGS4 PS3 Bundle Only Online

If you're a loyal Metal Gear Solid fan and have been waiting for the fourth installment to drop before purchasing a PlayStation 3, you're likely looking for one of those sweet MGS4 PS3 bundles. And if that's the case, you should pay very close attention and clear your schedule for Monday (well, not really, but you'll see why we say that).

We've already heard about the MGS4 PS3 bundle, but GameSpot stumbled on some new details that are pretty darn important. First of all, this is a different bundle; it'll be priced at $599 and come with the 40GB Gunmetal PlayStation 3, matching Dual Shock 3 controller, and of course, a Limited Edition copy of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. But also, you will not be able to snag this at your local game store. No, it will only be available at Konami's Online Store, and these things are gonna go fast. They're calling it a "highly limited edition," and pre-orders kick off "some time" on Monday, May 19. As we don't have an exact time, this means any interested parties had best keep refreshing that page at various intervals throughout the day.

Of course, there is another "regular" MGS4 PS3 bundle you can land at GameStop and other retailers, and it'll only cost you $499. It comes with an 80GB PS3, too, which boasts partial backwards compatibility. It's up to you which you want to go after, but just bear in mind that the "highly limited edition" could be tough to nab...

Damn, Europe got a good catch with that ps3/gta bundle. not bad at all

But, this gun metal bundle...... i love my ps3, and i love the mgs series, but it aint worth it. Seems like the normal mgs bundle is worth so much more in my eyes. Sure, if you are an avid collector, yea, go for it. But they kinda dropped the ball by not making it a 80 gb ps3.

So you basically pay $100 more for a paint job, 16 extra songs on the soundtrack ( IIRC )? there has got to be something that justifies the price and so far im not seeing it.

But even with all that complaining, both bundles will sell fast as hell

Wait... Are you seriouse? 599 for a 40 GB? No thanks... Ill take the regular bundle pack, for the 80 GB. Honestly, the marketing supervisor for whoever the hell set this up is pretty darn stupid in some mental shape or form.

Yes, the Dualshock is there, Yes... the Game is there. Same thing with the regular bundle, except without the Dualshock, you know?

I agree. They probably have an abundance of 40GB ones left cause everyone wants the 60 and 80 versions. They know that game is gonna be high in demand as well as that controller, so they threw them together with the crappy system version in order to get rid of them. They feel 2/3rds great is worth a high price cause they know... maybe not all, but some... correction... ENOUGH people will buy it.

This bundle does not come with a standard copy of MGS4, Tatsujin. You get the $85 Limited Edition. And the 80GB MGS4 pack comes with a DS3 too.
