Metal Gear Solid 4 Goes Budget In Japan

This past March, MGS4 went to Sony's Platinum budget line in Europe. Now, it's following suit for Japan.

Hideo Kojima's swan song for Solid Snake, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, will be released on Sony Computer Entertainment "PLAYSTATION 3 the Best" line on June 18 for ¥3,990 (US$41).

MGS4 went on sale June 12, 2008. Even though it's one of the biggest selling PS3 titles in Japan, MGS4 still hasn't reached the million copies sold benchmark in The Land of the Rising Sun. By the end of last year, the game sold 4.5 million copies worldwide.

for Uncharted to go Greatest Hits, and once it does i am gunna go and get it before the Red Cases arrive. (I have beaten the game many times, but I had to return it before I could finish it on Crushing.

Uncharted is already Platinum

Max Power4094d ago (Edited 4094d ago )

it is in America, I checked the Best Buy ad on Sunday and online and its says its near or full price.

Fishy Fingers4094d ago

Ah sorry dude, I didnt realise the EU/US were different.

SCEA is being incredibly tight-fisted when it comes to dropping the prices to "Greatest Hits" in the US. Uncharted, Heavenly Sword(approaching 2 years old), Folklore, Ratchet and Clank all still officially retail for $60 and MGS 4 for $50.

Why oh why would you trade or return uncharted!!!

I am keeping that game forever. That game is my security blanket. Hands down one of the best games I have ever played!

Whenever I get down thinking about the state of the gaming industry, fanb*ys, and lack of integrety in gaming jounalism, I just pop Uncharted in and it instantly gives me hope and picks me up.

No matter how many times I play it it always puts a smile on my face. I think I enjoyed it more than even MGS4 and I am a huge fan of the series!

ultimolu4094d ago

I agree. I am so not selling that game. That game had way too many plot twists and action-packed scenes for me to dismiss it.

nycredude4094d ago

All this talk about Uncharted and MGS suddenly I am craving Uncharted 2. Can't wait until Monday to hear the "electrifying news"!

ultimolu4094d ago (Edited 4094d ago ) purse is gonna be dead when this year is over okey?

I can't wait for a lot of games.

Uncharted 2
God of War III
Gran Turismo 5

...And I still need to get a 320gb harddrive.

EDIT: And the disagree trolls are following me. You see, the funniest thing about them is that they're too cowardly to show their faces.

Max Power4094d ago

I rented it because I didn't have the funds for it at the time, but don't worry I will pick up that game to have in it my collection.

Why o why4094d ago

Yes i would and did actually. I repurchased it when the trophies got patched in and it was my very 1st platinum. Clocked it at least 6 times.... thanks for asking:)

nycredude4094d ago

Yeah my wallet been mangled all year and it's only going to get worse/better!
NGS2, Heavy Rain, Uncharted 2, GOW 3, MAG, GT5, plus a bunch of MP games and I have Demon's Soul coming in the mail.
Good thing I already have a 320gb. I think you can get one for the same price as a game now.

@Why O Why
6 times!! Wow I thought I was obsessed with 4 playthroughs!

Why o why4094d ago

i completed it on crushing twice and got no platinum trophy. It was a bug in the game. I had to delete my save files and start over. I got my time down to 5 hours 20.
