The final US box art for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has been released by Konami. See the Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Limited Edition and Standard Edition box art here
That Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Limited Edition box looks S*XY!;-P
Yeah i agree, as an artist back in the day (i was pretty good at drawing not painting) all i can say is thank goodness that art exists, i appreciate art & i think that art is a beautiful thing.
Does anyone know what the LE comes with? I will upgrade if its anything worth a damn...
"Featuring collectible packaging with exclusive artwork by famed Kojima Productions illustrator Yoji Shinkawa, the Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Limited Edition will contain everything that is included with the Standard Edition as well as an additional Blu-ray disc featuring two "making of" documentaries. The documentaries will include extensive interviews with Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and the Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Soundtrack CD. The Limited Edition will be available exclusively at GameStop". Its $85 though, i might get it nontheless
I have limited edition pre ordered. Mostly for the sound track. MGS soundtrack could easily compete with any movie soundtrack
Yeah i agree, gta3 also had a pretty good soundtrack. It had some good rock, some underground hiphop, some good techno, can't remember if there was any reggae its been a while since i played gt3
Harry Gregson-Williams has in fact done the scores of PLENTY of blockbuster movies http://imdb.com/name/nm0004...
@alter ego yea i know lol
but what happened to the 4 novella chapters that was reported to be in there?
I'm thinking of buying MGS4 LE just for that amazing box art. I hope that the MGS4 blueray case inside of that beautiful box has the same Art, it will be the center peace to my PS3 collection
Special edition is nice, hate the CGI cover. Personally, I just don't think it works with the series.
I agree with you there...I'm almost thinking about upgrading my order to the limited edition now Edit: just upgraded it
Yeah, limited edition looks very nice, a lot better than the regular.
@Marceles, Good on you! I would of done the exact same in your position. @Keowrath, If I remember right your UK based. We get the best cover bro :)
Heh I agree that we get the better cover IMO but the special edition US version aint no slouch either.
damn, beat me by 3 minutes! ha anyways...this is effing great... I've already paid for the special edition in full even though i'd still like to get the EU or JPN actual cover art over the 3-d render of the US regular version
Limited Edition is badass. I love it. That's the one I reserved =p
that all of the extra stuff on the blu ray in the special edition will be available shorty after release for free on the PSStore:P
Why would they put the DUALSHOCK3 Compatible logo on the front? That's just f*cking stupid. Ruins the cover...
How could Kojima aprove that, it looks worst that the broadband logo of ps2 games.
OMG your kidding right?
smart move putting the classic art style on the LE box
...That Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Limited Edition box looks S*XY! ;-P ;-P ;-P ONLY ON PS3!!! ;-D
the limited was supposed to have the soundtrack too
Yeah, read the announcement, it details what shows up on the limited/standard editions.
The Limited Edition is NOT exclusive to Gamestop. I just switched my pre-order to LE at my local Canadian EB Games. I also got the Saga Vol.2/Beta Key. Anyways, looking forward to this release almost as much as GTA4, more in some cases.
are the same company
EB Games is part of Gamestop
Electronics Boutique, Babbages, Gamestop are the same thing.
How come you can't order the Mass Effect LE off the EB Games website if they're the same? I'm just saying, if they were EXACTLY the same, why are the names different?
one bought out the other, and some changed the names...some didn't
stuff right here man
It looks nice I hope the British release gets some sort of Limited Edition too. I bet it will be a typical "tin case" type of Limited Edition.
hit me up on psn psnid-begxforxmercy
Maelgoth is me, though I'm guessing I'll see you there either way.
the LE will match perfectly with my Essentials box sweet
They made the regular edition box ugly on purpose to urge people into buying the sexy limited edition box. Touche, marketing team, touche. Fair enough, I'll go switch to the limited edition now. You got me this time, Konami.
Damn.....New avatar get.
L E for me... thanks
really cool. Sexy Boxart for the sexiest game 2008 : )
What the 360 versions will look like. Just kidding.
Good to see the DS3 logo there.
i called gamecrazy to upgrade my order to the LE but the dude said they don't have the LE in america, WTF. IS THIS TRUE???? upon reading, it's exlusive to gamestop. i'm gonna switch my copy to GTA4 and preorder the LE @ gamestop.
time to switch my pre-order to the limited edition. the box art looks really good plus the extra stuff is cool too.
Limited Edition wins all, glad I preordered that one. For this game you just can't go with the plain package!!
Killer box arts,MGS4 is going to be a beast! I can't wait! And LOL @ everybody worrying about which box art looks better,I just want to play the damn game,to hell with the box art!;)
the game of the century. gotta have the LE This will be my first LE purchase.
Hardcore MGS fans like me love the LE box art, but I can see why Konami chose to go with the CG for the regular since I think that look appeals to the general public more. Either way, we all win because the insides are the same for both.
I'm getting the limited edition
I'm going to go pre-order the LE this week. That box-art is awesome, plus i really want that soundtrack. MGS music always rocks
Good thing I pre-order the limited edition. Can not wait. This will the best game of all time. If you disagree you must be an x-bot. Hate to be you.
Any news on a limited edition for Europe?
danb that is some sexy sh!t right there :) i had my copy paid in full but transfered it to LE :)
NICE!!!!!! Me want LE.........Must...change....my .order....today!!!!
The limited edition MGS4 looks really cool good thing I reserved it yesterday.
omg too funny. Does it matter what the box looks like? As long as the games great I don't care, even if the cover was plain white with the game title done in crayon. lol Come on guys ya gotta admit, its a bit geeky caring about the box art.
agreed. now if it came with a collector's plate with the art on it, it'd fit nicely between my Princess Di original commemorative collector's plate and my franklin mint Gone With the Wind series collector's plate. or, i'd settle for an MGS4 engraved gold doubloon.
The US boxart is weak, the LE one, its straight.
Really looking forward to MGS on Ps3. The more i read about it the better it sounds.
Sight at the normal edition box art..I guess its Obligatory Limited Edition them :D
game. It will be beyond epic, this game will be legendary like a classic movie. I can't wait!!!!!!!
Oh, God. Thanks U, thanks u, thanks u, thanks u!!!! It look sexy and awesome.
LE has a kickass cover. Glad that's the version I pre-ordered.
MGS4=GOTY enough said.
