While the release date for the standard edition of Metal Gear Solid 4 is still for June 12th, the limited edition date has been moved up to a June 6th release according to Gamestop.
i have no problem with it. i already pre-ordered mine. =]
Thats a day before my birthday:D This must be a sign. lol seriously though i am sure this will be discredited in due time in fact i hope it does. It will cause unnecessary commotion if they release the limited edition before time.
ssshhhh don't jinx it lol
It makes sense, you get more of an award for preordering the LE edition. Unfortunately I will be on vacation In Vegas during that week so I won't be able to play it.
i swear those sneaky b*stards at gamestop keep doing these things on purpose so suckers get all excited/worried and pre-order. do you really think they'd release the game early? and do you really think Gamestop would be the first to know? ... really?
I don't care for anything in the LE, but a week early? Man I might have to buy it now ...
Me too, I got mine on my local gamestop. hopefully it will arrive on time to enjoy IT! ^__^
I'll do whatever it takes to play this game a week earlier. Ha
I have no idea whether to believe this, but I have my LE preordered so...bring it on Gamestop.
Same here, I preordered the LE after seeing the new boxart, so I really hope this is true.
Cool, June 6th is the day I get back from camp and four days before my birthday, so I'd love for this to be true.
At Band Camp....
guess im pre-ordering the LE of MGS4. Whatever MGS4 FTW :P
i preordered mine already...pLEASE be true. It's a brilliant way to get ppl to drop that $85
I have know idea how true this is, but THATS the way to reward someone for spending the extra and getting a limited edition game. Imagine playing a week before everyone else stopping only to rub it in on N4G, "Cant stop gotta run, people to kill, bye !"
but if it happens then cool
Got my LE paid in full.
Watch the Limited Edition pre-orders skyrocket...tricksy little Sony...
true, maybe its also to encourage more people to preorder and purchase the LE version to have it a week in advance
This could be a smart move from Konami. If the rumors are true. This will make lots of people that pre-ordered the standard edition switch to the LE. Since lots of us can't wait a week later to play this awesome game. So the sells of MGS4 will be even better, IMO.
This is probably the ship date (Games ship 5 days before to get to retailers) and they got their wires crossed with the street date. Or maybe I'm wrong. Who knows I preordered the CE to begin with.
Actually, the date was the 12th before...I always check my preorders and I was checking if my GT5 Prologue shipped, and then I noticed this date was changed to the 6th so...I don't know why they would change it, but hopefully they don't change it back lol
Gamestop Corporate pulls this stuff all the time, dates change in the computer, and often times, a game is "in stock" for up to two weeks before it's actually released. MGS4 is such a high profile release though, that it'll almostly certainly have a very specific street date that cannot be broken (although that doesn't mean somebody won't break it somewhere.) Just because the MGS4 LE is in the store earlier doesn't mean it'll be on sale earlier, so don't get your hopes up too high.
It looks like pre-orders are worth the effort. I pre-ordered Prologue and I think I will get it a day early (Wednesday 16) than the rest.
and they say pre-ordering is a waste of time...
Special thank you for reserving the Limited Edition? There are too many good collector's editions coming this year Grand Theft Auto IV Fallout 3 Alone in the Dark Soul Calibur IV Fable 2 Gears of War 2 Metal Gear Solid 4 unlike some that we know like Assassin's Creed, Rainbow Six Vegas 2.
Add DMC4 to that list of "bleh", I'm intrigued by the Fallout 3 one though I must check it out. I already have GTA4 LE and MGS4 LE preordered.
BRING ITT ONNNN!!
I refuse to shop at gaystop.
Good tactic on their part.
If this rumor is true, all i can say is Fvcking Awesome!!! I'll be one of the lucky ones to play this game 1 week early! How cool is that?!?! Konami please let it be true!
i would have an orgasm, actually multiple ones.
I know you would.. lol
I knew this was a bogus listing from the moment I saw it. Lo and behold, I check it again on GS's site first thing this morning, right back to where it should be: June 12. However, the art book originally listed as a bonus before the date change (either of them) is not listed anymore. So, two things-- the article needs to be amended to show that this was indeed a false alarm and secondly be investigated why this art book is not longer listed on the site with purchase. Or is it? Check out the package goodies image-- game box, MGS Saga V.2, something that looks like the top of a PS3, and... a book with an image of the Silverburgh Rat Patrol (notice the spine divot at the top of the image).
dayummm, now I'm gonna fail my exams >.> lol, o well.
