The story is too old to be commented.
devwan1481d ago

It is, and it also explains why shopto suddenly offered the game at an incredible £23.85, which forced me to cancel my Amazon per-order.

More games with 0s3-ps4-360-xbo parity will make me much more willing to buy day one.

abzdine1481d ago

it has always been 30£ on amazon UK

devwan1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )

@abdzine, not so, I pre-ordered early and got it for £28 there, better than their current price but not less that shopto's new price.

Amazon often have these very early pre-order better prices, had the same on 2 other early pre-orders on ps4 recently.

But you're right in saying Amazon had it on sale for the same or less than the new RRP (old RRP was £39.99).

tigertron1481d ago

Shopto's price prompted me to pre-order.

I was going to wait for a price drop but what the hell? I'll play this straight after I finish Infamous.

Razmossis1481d ago

So how do they now justify the price of the digital version?
Minus the cost of packaging and shipping please.

FamilyGuy1481d ago

"Polygon has confirmation that the PS3, Xbox 360, PS4 and Xbox One retail version will cost $29.99, while the PS3 digital downloadable copy will cost $20"


jony_dols1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )

The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC is around the same length of Ground Zeroes yet it's retail was £12.

And some complained that it was too expensive for it's price point, but others are willing to swallow £30 for this...even after Konami had the cheek to initially charge 10 more.

I'll be holding out, till the full release to buy second hand, just on principle.

It's still $39.99 here in the U.S on & GameStop... wtf

DragonKnight1481d ago

Looks like it's only for the UK, doubtlessly because the UK's digital software laws aren't as archaic and pro-corporation as the entirety of North America's laws.

Patrick_pk441481d ago

What's the problem? We are still getting the game cheaper in North America. By the way, don't forget to convert the currency because £30 doesn't equal $30.

Ratty1481d ago

Could take some time for them to adjust. Or maybe they just won't. It's unconfirmed for NA.

Crazyglues1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )

Well he updated the article guys, so we will now be getting this for $29.99 in the U.S. for PS3, X360, PS4 and XboxOne... all versions will be $29.99 - which is how it should have been..

-So that's pretty Cool-

He must have heard Foxtrot below, complaining... LoL and lowered it.. I think at 30 bucks we don't have a problem that's a good price, I'm not going to be mad at 30 bucks, 40 did seem a little to close to 60 if that makes sense so I feel ya' Foxtrot..

-But for 30 I think it's Ok, that's really not that bad, especially considering the download version is 10 dollars cheaper.. @ 19.99

FourtyPoundSteak1481d ago

Check again guys, price changed to $30 on US Amazon and Gamestop. Definite Purchase

-Foxtrot1481d ago

Still wouldn't pay it....don't see why I should have to pay nearly full price for the start of a full price game coming out next year.

I didn't pay for the Tanker missions and I'm not paying for this.

They'll bundle this with MGSV in the far future.

No one should support this practice.

Ratty1481d ago

It's your choice. Not mine.

-Foxtrot1481d ago

Yeah it's my choice, because I actually give a crap about the industry

KonsoruMasuta1481d ago

I'm buying it. Can't wait until I get my hand on this.

Crazyglues1481d ago

@ -Foxtrot

it's going to be 30 now for all versions, story was updated..

So are you cool with that price point or are you still upset..

I think it's good especially now that digital will be 20 bucks..

Anyway bubble for you -Foxtrot I think they probably read that statement you made before about how it was a rip-off and lowered it.. I really think they heard you..

Bubble up for the movement...

||.........___||............ ||

MAULxx1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )

-Foxtrot has it right. I don't want more games doing this either.

yeahokchief1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )

Alot of indie games are already like this.

RAIN was originally priced at $15 and you could beat that game in 2 hours no problem. And that game didn't even have next gen graphics/tech...

-Foxtrot1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )


I think the price was only half the problem, the other point of all this was that it shouldn't be cut from the game in the first place.

If they want to sell it early fair enough let people buy it if they want but don't cut it from the actual game. It's forcing people to buy this to understand MGSV more


Yeah difference is though they are indie games....MGSV is a AAA title.

May I just say to everyone that one day there will be a game which does this that you love and only then will you truly give a crap about it's better to stop this kind of thing now because it happens to more games you love.

I know you think you can easily brush it off because it's the "one" game but it will end up being two games, then three, then four and so on.

DLC got out of hand last gen, it was such a simple innocent thing we let pass and look what's happened today.

Ratty1481d ago

Maybe I care more about the industry than you. Sooner or later you're going to have to accept the fact that not everyone shares your opinion and that your opinion isn't absolute truth.

Petebloodyonion1481d ago


"Yeah difference is though they are indie games....MGSV is a AAA title."

So AAA games cost less to produce?

I think that a lot of ppl are forgetting that it take resources to develop a new engine and new game. Have you all consider that maybe Ground Zero is a focus group test.
To see how players react to complete to this new style of play?
DID all of you complained about GT prologue?
Dead rising case 0?

MetaReapre1481d ago

I guess I look at it in a good way. I see your point but I like that I'm going to get to play even a bit of the game earlier, I love the mgs series too much I guess that it makes me impatient. Although I do agree with you that it shouldn't be cut from the actual game. If anything you should get a free code with phantom pain that let's you download ground zero for free at least. Lol

"It's not truth that supporting these practices will end up harming the industry in the future......are you stupid, I mean come on

This isn;t just my "opinion" it's what will most likely happen."

That's exactly what I mean.

Anyhow, there's been plenty of talk that the game is around ten hours. Some people said it's two hours. Others say it's 5 minutes. Are you just going to take their word for it? I'm not going to take anyone's. I'm going to play it and see for myself.

You can keep crying about it but I'm still getting it :)

iistuii1481d ago

Your banging your head against the wall with this lot. I'm with you. I wont buy it,id rather await the full game. This & early access on Steam is dodgy ground, its like DLC but the other way round. Can you imagine the fuss if Microsoft released say 2 maps of Titanfall for £20, theyd go insane on here.

yeahokchief1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )

how the fuck does anyone disagree with my comment?

it's not debatable. rain is a 2 hour game. cold hard fact. there's nothing to disagree with.

i'm not saying i like the pricing structure. i'm just saying that if people are going to make a stink about this then they should have also cried about the pricing of RAIN and 2 hour games in the first place.

it should show the names of the people that agree and disagree with you on this site or remove the feature. either that or have an option where my comments are only read by people ages 18+ along with tests for reading comprehension. the people on this site are ridiculous.

29.99 in the US sweet. I already Pre-ordered my copy.

Truer words have never been spoken. Lol

harrisk9541481d ago

I was on the fence with the PS4 version. Now, I will definitely get it.

Patrick_pk441481d ago

I hope it changes within Canada, because of how weak the Canadian coin is currently, Amazon is charging $45. Basically, I am getting ripped off from my favourite series. I know that whatever happens in the US, usually applies for Canada. Please God, lower the price for us poor Canadians :(

Number-Nine1481d ago

Its still $10 too high. The adjustment is nice and all but the fact that they're splitting these titles into 2 games doesn't sit well with me.


At 39.99 i was going to wait but 29.99 is more than reasonable

abstractel1480d ago (Edited 1480d ago )

For me that made this a 50/50 chance of me purchasing it (given the length of the game) to me pre-ordering it. I'll feel better buying this now. Will give me a few days of quality MGS action until Infamous arrives in my mail.

Off topic, but where the hell is the release date announcements for Dying Light, Watch Dogs and Driveclub? Thought they were all due the first quarter which ends at the end of March.

Ah good, still just a little pricey, but definitely much better.

sags791481d ago

Wonder if it'll be the same for other regions...

FogLight1481d ago

Now that is better, and equal to digital price (if it won't change)

Mr-Dude1481d ago

Here in Holland it's €32,50, which is about $45

BattleReach1481d ago

On 12Game it's €26.

Gegroet trouwens, leuk om wat Nederlanders te zien hier.

devwan1481d ago

There it's €26.96 from the given RRP of €29.99, which makes it just under €29.00 delivered.

Ratty1481d ago

It's 45$ in Canada as well. Our prices are usually the same as US but once in a while (especially lately) something like this happens.
