Konami confirm UK MGS4 limited edition and pre-order bonus
We had heard about this pack through various sources, but until Konami themselves said it was true, we've held back on reporting it.
But today Konami have confirmed that a limited edition of Metal Gear Solid 4 will hit UK shores. In addition, they have partnered with various UK retail outlets to provide a pre-order bonus.
Consumers that pre-order at certain retailers (list not yet confirmed) will gain the Metal Gear Saga Vol. 2 DVD - a seven-part documentary detailing the origins of previous Metal Gear games and the evolution of Hideo Kojima’s epic series.
The limited edition version of the game includes a soundtrack CD, a 6” 'Old Snake' action figurine, and an exclusive ‘Making Of’ Blu-ray disc. The Blu-ray disc contains two high-definition documentaries which offer a candid, behind-the-scenes look at the development of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, with interviews with series creator Hideo Kojima and key Kojima Productions personnel.
The Limited Edition will carry a £79.99 RRP.
“Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is rightly seen as the stand-out title for 2008, and we were determined to come up with something special for its launch. With interest so high, it is only right that we reward fans of the series for pre-ordering the game, and the Metal Gear Saga DVD is a stunning look at how the series has evolved into the phenomenon it has become. Likewise, the Limited Edition is a celebration of all things Metal Gear, and will be prized by those who buy it.” - Martin Schneider, European Marketing Director for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH.
