I walked into work today and we got an email saying we're now taking reserves on the MSG4 Limited Edition version.

The limited edition will retail for $84.99 and include the following:

A Blu-ray containing
2 making of documentaries, and interview with Kojima
4 chapters of the graphic novel
Metal Gear Import Soundtrack CD

Reserves for the limited edition will also get an exclusive Metal Gear Solid 4 artbook at time of purchase.

The LE comes packaged in a collectible metal case.


FAQ

1. Q: When will I be able to get the artbook?
A: Most likely at time of game release pickup.

2. Q: When can I get my Metal Gear Solid Saga Vol. 2 DVD w/ beta key?
A: Stores will be getting them in April. As soon as I get word of the exact date, I'll let you know.

3. Q: How limited is the Limited Edition?
A: Probably very limited like MGS3:Subsistence SE was. Hard to say though. If you want one for sure, I would preorder.

4. Q: How much do I have to put down to reserve the LE?
A: $10 minimum deposit.

5. Q: Will there be a midnight release?
A: TBD. If enough people preorder the game, it is a possibility.

6. Q: Can I preorder online?
A: As of yet, no.

7. Q: Will the 80GB PS3 bundle come with the LE version of MGS4?
A: Probably not. It will probably come packed-in with the standard edition.

8. Q: What about Canada?
A: Sorry, I don't have any information on that.

For reference and to make sure you reserved the right one, the SKU # is 270209.

I had hoped they added MG and MG: Solid Snake since they weren't in MGS:E.

Doesn't seem that bad, but no other MGS swag? GTA is coming with a duffel bag and lock box along with all the OST/Interview stuff and is $90.

I imagine the bonus stuff comes in a tin case like the JPN version. There wasn't much information on what the artbook will be other than there will be one for LE reserve customers.

I need to see the actual package before I decide. If it has shittier boxart, or even better boxart, that would make my decision for me.

Considering Subsistence in the US, this is likely to have vastly inferior box quality, but I'm going to get it anyway (not saying I'm NOT getting the JP LE)

I'll be going there next week to transfer my preorder over.

Now what about the damn MGO beta?

Do you by any chance happen to know what is going with the MG Saga Vol. 2 DVD for those who preorder before it is in stock? I mean like, do they set copies aside for people who preordered in advance, or is it whoever shows up first gets them and when they're gone, they're gone?

4 chapters of the graphic novel

what? is it imcomplete version of the digital comic or is it a physical thing? it should contain the entire MGS2 digital comic.

We'll be setting the amount we have preordered aside and any extra goes to people who preorder after we get them. I know at least my store will be calling people to let them know when they're in. I don't know if everyone will be doing this... but the moment we get them I'll drop a post here to let you guys know.

Good, I'm #1 preorder at my Gamestop and I bet I'm the only one that has asked about it.


I wonder how the Gamestop guy felt when some random person called and asked about something that happened today and he didn't even know about.

lulz. I came in at 2 and the email we had on it was printed and highlighted so we'd all see it. Obviously, not all stores are as informed since regular employees can't check the email.

Why not? It's not like they'd punish you for getting the LE of MGS4.

I would go tomorrow but they're closed for Easter. I'm going straight to my GS after classes on Monday though. Since I'm friends with the manager, I've gotta ask him to hold me the DVD when it comes in.
