yes bit disappointed it's just a repackage up-to-date version with a new box-art. Was hoping they would try to cram some things like Theatre view, or something. Though it does take a large amount of disc space.

I was hoping that it would have added the elements that Kojima didn't have time to add in before release. I would have paid 60 dollars for 2 (or 3?) Blu-Rays of MGS content....

Not saying I'm not buying this regardless.....

He said Blu-Ray wasn't enough.
Hard to cram any more. Lmao.

@ nitro and adore.

You'd think he would have more space (for at least the Japanese language in a lower sampling rate) because they took out MGO, which should have cleared-up some space on the disc.

I think they re-packaged it to remove the online and MGO's presence as well.

I could give a rip-snort about a poster.

I can't play that!

It includes the original game, full trophy support and the optional full game install to avoid chapter to chapter installs (takes up the best part of 10gb , just as a heads up to any potential 12gb PS3 owners or those struggling for HDD space).

Plus the new packaging of course.

I picked this up for £14 on release at ShopTo.net and i'm not even going to take the seal off since i have my launch MGS4 and i know how "limited" these Kojima games limited editions really are.

A fine addition to my MGS collection and maybe worth something to someone one day if ever grow out of gaming (highly doubtful, but still) =)

I never got round to playing the game first time around. Now i don't have an excuse to miss out.

when is it coming to the US?
nyobzoo  +   488d ago
well if it's only 20 pounds I guess if it releases in the US it'll be $20, I'll pick it up again for that price
mathsman  +   488d ago
That's probably not going to be the case. Given that UK RRP is typically £49.99 and US is $59.99, I'd guess it'll be $30 in the US.

Still, you never pay RRP these days, so you'll probably find it for less...
Oh_Yeah  +   488d ago
But you can get the og version for 10...

"well if it's only 20 pounds"

Games don't weigh that much.....

"Konami are today inviting newcomers to the PlayStation 3 to join in with that which the early adopters championed back in 2008,"

too bad the newcomers cant play online.
OhReginald  +   488d ago
Newcomers wont even know this game has multi player since with the new added patch it completely removes the multiplayer from the menu. Also back of the box of this version will probably list for 1 player only.
PirateThom  +   488d ago
Spot on, it does.
Welshy  +   488d ago
The patch literally removed ALL elements of MGO!?

I didn't know this, bubble for you sir, i comfortably put near 1000 hours into MGO across 3 characters and loved it.

I really hope Ground Zeroes brings it back bigger and better than ever.
Summons75  +   488d ago
No one deserves to suffer through the konami id in order to play online, that was a nightmare n a half.

but newcomers are in for a treat as long as they have played MGS 1, 2 and 3 before, otherwise they will be completely confused.
Soldierone  +   488d ago
Once you got through that, it was one of the best online games to play though. A lot of tactical skill required.

I loved teaming up with my friend and I'd be out in the field scaring people into the open, while he snipes them. There was that one level with the really long ally. I'd go clear out the side ally and get them to run through the big ally, he would sit up on the roof of the building at the end of it and pop them lol

We were ranked in the top 10 for about two months.
Bathyj  +   488d ago
Even if youve played 1 2 and 3 you still might be confused. Thats MGS for you.
Soldierone  +   488d ago
Where do we get it in the US?! I want to buy it just to collect. Last time I didn't get a limited edition it was MGS3, and look how that turned out.
Nate-Dog  +   488d ago
I really don't think this'll be a limited edition. There's nothing limited about it bar the box art, nothing new whatsoever on the disc like older editions.
Soldierone  +   488d ago
I still want it for the cover lol. This coming from a comic book collector! :P

I have everything MGS. All the games (except limited edition MGS3) and I'm currently working on getting the comics and action figures :P

5.1 Surround?

The original release had 7.1.
Stevo2k  +   488d ago
Fps
But is the framerate any better...it kinda chugged along.
CommonSenseGamer  +   488d ago
Did they ever patch the ridiculous install for this game? if you have multiple profiles on your PS3 and if the players using those profiles are playing different stages of the game you'll know what I mean.
dantesparda  +   487d ago
yes the did, you have the option to fully install the game (well i dont think your installing the full game) but it definitely gets rid of the chapter installs. Its like 9 gigs.

Bring back METAL GEAR ONLINE! not this bull$h!+.
Sp1d3ynut  +   487d ago
Why couldn't they have released all of the changes/additions in a free update for those who supported the original release? Seems like a shameful money grab by Konami/Kojima Prod.
