Play.com Offers MGS4 PS3 Bundle
Okay, so the pre-purchasing of the "highly limited edition" MGS4 PS3 bundle at Konami's Online Store turned out to be a colossal disaster. Not only was a $500 insurance fee required - bringing your total with tax to about $1,100, even though the fee is refunded upon delivery - but most consumers couldn't even check out. Nope, that frustrating 503 Error kept popping up, and Konami eventually had to take the offer down.
Well, we've got another option for you, Euro gamers. It's not the "highly limited edition," but Play.com is selling a Metal Gear Solid 4 PlayStation 3 bundle. It includes the 40GB Gunmetal Gray PS3 console, a Gunmetal Dual Shock 3, and the Special Edition of the game. The total price of this attractive package is £329.99, and you can place your order now. We assume this will actually work, so if you're anxious to insure that you get a PS3 and MGS4 come June 12, this is a great option for our friends across the pond. Here in the US, fans can still pick up the "regular" MGS4 PS3 bundle from a variety of retailers, including GameStop, so every major region now has an appealing bundle option for Kojima's upcoming masterpiece. We normally don't make such predictions but...well, we all know it's going to be a masterpiece.
So anyway, if you want to get a jump on things, head over to Play.com now and get yourself a snazzy bundle.
