Joystiq: Snaaake? We ask Sony about 'limited-edition' MGS4 80GB PS3 supply

Joystiq writes: "We've received numerous "tips" concerning the Metal Gear Solid 4 80GB PlayStation3 bundle and just how darned scarce it's become in the wilds of retail. We checked with Sony to find out when more shipments of the "limited-edition" bundle will be sneaking back into North America.

Sony tells us that it's pleased with the strong interest in the bundle (system seller confirmed!) and is "working to ensure that additional shipments are provided to retailers." The company wouldn't provide specific inventory levels or give a restocking date, so if you're really aching for the bundle, you'd best keep hitting redial and pestering your local retailer"

The story is too old to be commented.

man only 2 made it to my closest store.

We had a few more than that, but the line to get them ate them up quick.

I'm interested to see the NPD results for this month... seems those bundles sold out the wazoo.

sometimes when they need to step up and hit that home run they send their weakest hitter out..

Sony should've advertise the game a lot more.. i'm not saying halo3 style but you know at least 5 commercial a day in most channels, i am yet to see one commercial of mgs4

And second they should've stock the crap out of that bundle.. if people were ready to drop that money on a ps3 and couldn't find any the only affected people is gonna be sony.. they did the same at launch and if people can't find the ps3 and decide to spend their money on something else.. well there goes that potential buyer...

MS sold almost a million of 360s when halo3 came out.. sony should've notice the possibilities of a big tittle and overstock the ps3 everywhere

i was telling my buddy today how great MGS4 is and you know what he asked me......."If it's so good, why haven't I seen any commercials for it. I see that Bad Company commercial all the time. I was thinking of getting that." swear to God, word for word.

obviously he doesn't follow gaming news at all, so i had to guide him in the right direction. but it's not my job to sell MGS4 to people. i bought a copy, convinced two people to get a PS3 just for the game, and two others to buy the game. i've done enough.

sony really acts like they don't care sometimes.

I've seen the MGS4 ad just as much as the BF:BC but the difference is BF hasn't been released it and not until the 25th. But it's nice that Sony wants all games to do well. They're not going to just bill everything on one game which is why some Microsoft studios left because 1st year Gears of War 1 got all the attention and Halo 3 got all the marketing last year even though Bioshock deserved more.

If you couldn't find it, you would wait or you would buy the 40GB model plus MGS4? Just a question. I'd choose the second option.

it was a good idea to kill the Motorstorm bundle. this is possibly the best bundle in playstation history. seriously.
