MGS4 pre-order campaign and limited edition

Published On May 12, 2008 | By Russ Clow | News

June 12th couldn’t come soon enough. It’s the day when nobody on the face of the planet will be going to work – all of them having picked up a deadly plague forcing them to stay in bed…in front of their PS3 with Metal Gear Solid 4.

In light of the huge anticipation floating around Hideo Kojima’s final rendition of the immense series, Konami have today confirmed that they are partnering with major retailers throughout Europe with a pre-ordercampaign.

When pre-ordering, you’ll be given a DVD entitled Metal Gear Solid Vol. 2, with a seven part documentary showcasing previous Metal Gear titles and discussing the evolution of Snake and the series in general. Konami say “This gripping documentary offers a valuable insight into the series and the history of Metal Gear’s iconic hero, Snake.” So there you have it.

If that wasn’t enough, Konami have also confirmed today that they will be releasing a Limited Edition version of MGS4, offering a soundtrack CD, a 6″ Old Snake figurine (That on its own is worth having!), and an exclusive ‘Making Of’ Blu-Ray.

The package will set you back £79.99 RRP and will be on sale with the standard package on June 12th. We’ll letMartin Schneider, European Marketing Director for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH (that’s a mouthful!) have the last word:

“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.”
