PS4, Xbox One Versions Of Ground Zeroes Gets Price Drop

Looks like the backlash registered with Konami.

After it was revealed that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes wasn't very long (some estimates as low as 2 hours), gamers started to wonder if that experience would be worth the money.

Prior to today, the regular retail versions of this prelude would sell for $40 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while the downloadable editions would go for $30. Well, as a slight concession to consumers, Konami has announced that the physical copies of Ground Zeroes for the PS4 and Xbox One will cost $30.

The $10 price drop only applies to the next-gen, boxed versions. The prices for the PS3 and 360 versions remain the same; physical copies will sell for $30 while digital versions will cost $20. So, this is just more incentive to grab the actual box from the retailer, right? And we hope you're planning on playing this bad boy on a next-gen machine...

No. From what I know it's not worth more than $15 to $20. It doesn't matter for me though. For others this is probably decent news.

All this tells me is they are fully aware that the product isn't worth what they were asking.

Ya 15/20 would be fair but 30 is still too much for a long demo .

That's a bit better, maybe I'll just wait until like a week before Phantom Pain drops. Also I do expect this to be a fantastic game and playing GZ almost a year before PP would be a huge tease.

This "game" is listed at $45 for PS4, and $35 for PS3 here in Canada. There better be a $15 drop across platforms in order for this purchase to be worthwhile here.

We're PSN buddies and we email back and forth from time to time. I just noticed his absence though on here with all these MGS articles. He loves these series.

I might be going too (Nobody Cares lol) In all honesty though I think the reason a lot of people are leaving is because of Ben. I'm sure he is a great guy but idk it just seems like he doesn't listen to peoples opinions. It is what it is YOLO

Oh right, now that you mention it, I haven't seen Highlander's long and amazing post for a long time now.
Scarecrow and Temjin gone too?

IIRC, Highlander took exception to some people calling him out in regards to his assertions that the architecture of the PS4 was basically a mid-range PC. Things got heated and he absented himself from PSXE. It was a sad day.

I can't remember exactly why Temjin left, but yes, he did mention that he would not come back.

Oh in the spirit of staying on topic, I'm fine with the price. I've preordered this minutes after reading this here even though I don't have a PS4 yet.

Temjin is gone? That's a real shame. I enjoyed his comments.

Highlander got real nasty about the PS4. Then when most of the people here didn't agree with him, he left.

@MeXiCaNFiGhTe12
Yeah, it's because Ben has a HUGE ego. Can be frustrating to try and converse with on here. You should check out his frequent fights with Beamboom, they are becoming comical :D

@LV
I think a lot of people come here for the community. The community here is pretty unique. I know that's my reason for being here.

It was 40 pounds on ps4 on a uk website and has now been lowered to 30 which i still think is too much for it.

Here in Australia, the next-gen versions are still listed at $70 on the PS4/XBO at JB Hi-Fi and EB Games. They'll probably get revised later on, but that's disgusting. The PS3/360 are $50, which is better, but still not a pleasant thought.

I'm holding out a little more on this. There's the chance somewhere down the road they'll be sold together bundled, like they should be.

Makes no difference to me. Was going with the digital version at first. Dropping the price on the box version just saves me download time
