pretty much a needless re-release if i ever saw one.
wow an included poster!!!!!!!!!
wow konami, seriously????
seems like something capcom would do but konami? im shocked.

unless its just to build interest and hype for the upcoming ground zeroes. then i could understand this move.

well im pretty sure it would be cool for people who havent played it yet... no need to be so negative

Yeah dude, why the negativity? Think as a GOTYE re-release with extra goodies. For people that never got around to playing MGS4 (finally kicked my COD addiction, thank you Far Cry 3) until recently...this is a great buy!

I'm just a little confused on its purpose tho. From what I read, it just has the poster, trophies and slightly altered box art.

But aside from the box art and poster, you can already buy the greatest hits and download the trophy patch for the same price.

So unless there's someone out there who really wants a free MGS poster, they could just get the gh version.

It seems like a wasted opportunity to me on konami's part for a 25th edition.
It would have been nice to include alot more I think personally since this is MGS after all. Maybe a special solid snake statue, collectors edition dog tags, free psn avatars, and other goodies.

To me, that would be a 25th anniversary edition worth releasing.
Sorry if I sounded so negative, I'm just baffled Konami didn't do more with it.

Wasted opportunity?..maybe, but that's a matter of opinion. Me personally, I wouldn't care much for figurines or anything...just more in-game stuff.

But for me, it was a great I can only leave it at that :)

It was the same price on release as the Platinum/Greatest Hits edition was and has the patch/trophies on disc.

It seems to me that it was also to remove all MGO related things for the box and disc. So they just printed a new version without it, and made it cheap.

i bought the game a month ago for 10 bucks and love it. I got the throphies and full install through an update, so i dont see the point for this version.

r211994d ago

Just got the game 2 weeks ago. Its pretty ridiculous IMO but still fun, love the Octocamo suit :) The only thing i dislike bout playing MGS4 is everytime i crawl super slowly, Snake does the worm XD
God, its hard not to laugh at that!
