Metal Gear Solid 4 is now officially confirmed for release on 12 june 2008 and also revealed for the first time are boxarts for both the standard edition and limited edition.
Best MGS cover to date
i don't like the red one i prefer the other one. going fot the limited edition though.
If I'm dreaming I want everyone to DISAGREE with me so I can wake up
LE coming on 2 bluray discs
im pre ordering the limited edition =D MGS FTW
What does LE Holds? I can't find a site to pre order limited edition!
all the trailers, making of mgs 4 and some more
Yeap, I now need a change of pants.
Honestly the limited edition bonuses arn't that great. I was hoping for something better.
But whatever, I'm still buying the LE because it looks better.
1st game i ever buy limited edition of
with 2 BLU-RAYs WOOOHHOOOOOO this cover is Phenomenal. I think i Buy the LE and the Normal Edition. I am a Collector^^
Best. Boxart. Ever.
GOD! I can't wait for this game; this is the first Metal Gear Solid I have even been sucked into. One day million copy seller. The Genius has spoken.
wow cool. 2008 = ps3
I'll switch it to the limited edition only if it has a art book with the full story on the history of the series with full graphic/concept art of the entire series, plus a documentary/ behind the scenes that spans the whole history, and since this is the last in the series this should not only be possible, but expected.
Oh God!!! This is getting too good to be true!!! SOMEONE WAKE ME UP!!!
best boxart i've ever seen ! (btw Uncharted Boxart also is good but this is hust OMFG ! )
Looking great :)
I'm so getting this! I'm going to buy another PS3 . I'm the biggest MGS fan
MGS4 = My GOTY
Jump in Play Beyond
Still dont think we'll be "old" Snake the whole time.
Whos the guy in the first image on the mag cover, he doesnt look to old to me...
take a closer look. That's def old Snake on the cover.
Oops on closer inspection it is him!
Still, im expecting to play as "young" snake at some point, that would make for a great twist!
Not the greatest twist if lots of people are expecting it. Now is it?
Are you talking about the close up view with the red boarder? (Magazine front cover?) cos I'd say that's definately Old Snake and he has his mustache, either that or he seriously need to trim the ol' nasal hairs!
loool for the nose hair thingy hahaha really fummy!!!
And the bundle is smexy!!!!! i want one :3
nice to see the bundle pack
Heh, I saw the back cover of the Japanese Magazine and thought it'd be cool if the box art was that. And lo and behold it is (with very slight changes for the better)
I love it!
Someone anyone lend me a PS3 from 12/6/2008-12/6/2010
and buy the console that is going to take the year by storm.
Ha ha...sorry man, I'll be using mine.
Very Original!!!! They look great!!!!
I am going to change my preorder to the limited edition lol i can't wait!
The box art is cool, but in my mind it was better, oh well as long as it’s excellent.
The game looks to be the best in the series since MGS 1, but the boxart looks like garbage. Uninspired and messy.
You not seen the Japanese box art for the previous games mate? They all use the same art style.
I'm used to it now and it just screams Metal Gear at me. To be honest, I'm glad they haven't changed it.
I have seen them(owned 1 & 2, played through 3) and I didn't really like them either. They did have some color however.
But will this be the boxart for the US or EU as well, or is it just Japan? The artwork looks it's designed for the Japanese audience to me (but I like it).
As I just posted to Jenzo, it does indeed look like this will be the Japanese art. I imagine the US/EU versions will change. I'm a fan of this style too and it's a shame that we probably wont see this in our own countrys =/
After this game nothing won't be same any more! It's great in every aspect, from cover to gameplay! I give voice for limeted edition too! My first one for shure!
Ummmm well no but Solid RAT just doesn't have that ring to it huh? =)
oh yea! always that classy after touch from Kojima and his team..hope it comes with many extras ..wouldn`t mind having a poster lol
Old snake with the tash looks really weird, better for him to have a beard lol. Gotta preorder this game soon from play.com =D
Actually, the box art has been available at AmazonBooks for at least 6-8 months.
I have the regular edition on pre-order from Amazon, but I'm also going to buy the Limited Edition if it makes it out this way.
Cant wait to play this game, its been to long of a wait. Iam glad that you can put add-ons to your weapons, it def. will make it more fun & interesting. The box art looks nice. "math is like sex, you + the bed, - the clothes, DIVIDE the legs & hope you don't MULTIPLY"
LE for the win
looks like ill be picking my PS3 on june 12! i love my 360 but on june 12 i will b cheating her with my new MGS4 PS3!!! wont be around LIVE for some time!!! MGS one of the best series EVER!
Have fun playing on your soon to be ps3 man. You def. are going to enjoy the system. Iam sure when gears 2 comes out you will play on live again no doubt, the first one was awsome. I don't have a 360 yet but if i did i know i would play gears 2 on live for sure.
remember the day when MGS got Delayed and all the xbots tried to Laugh so us..well what they got to say now..its finally a reality man.Marcus gonna get his A$$ kicked Bad....Sweeet
Looking at those screens got me excited.
Looks cool. I prefer the MGS3 boxart, though, which is beautiful.
Can someone put a comment with an atached picture please?!!
I can't wait to have that beautiful packaging sitting in my entertainment tower. Glad to see they're sticking witht he classy but powerful boxart.
I don't think so , when Marcus comes out againg later this years , he'll kick some PSfanboy in the ass !
Sony has admited that Resistence 2 will face GoW 2 ! hahahaha ! what a stupid say !
very very beautiful. cant wait. paid off in full,
This game alone was the reason why i bought my PS3.
Getting LE for reals, and the Raiden and Snake figures.
i can smell somethings burning man..well what i meant to say is tht Mgs4 will go for GOTY Nominee along with marcus and thts where hes gona get his a$$ kicked...though im also the fan of Marcus but infront of snake with 20 yr journey marcus doesnt stand a chance..resistance 2 on the other hand sounds good, insomiac never disappoint but this remain to be seen till they finally deliver.
can't wait!! limited edition for me!
The Box art with Snake Posing looking up at the sky with his hands out looks ill as fuk.
I heart MGS! I heart boobs too! Aside from that, Metal Gear should be good. They've all been really good, my favorite being the last one.
QUESTION! Can someone inform me on what all those weird animal/doll looking things are? If you played the last one they were all over the place. You know, you shoot them and they make this frog-like sound but stranger? I think there was a camo with them imprinted on it too.
This one is awesome..
i will buy buth one for my game room and one for my bedroom
It's fukin beautiful.
world wide release
finally i dont have to wait for it to come in the UK a month after the rest of the world has played it
