We already know that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be coming out on consoles on September 1, and with a big release like this, “special editions” are a given. Let’s go and take a look at the various editions of the game.

The Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain PS4 unit
A special PS4 console made in collaboration with Konami. The unit itself is the same color as Big Boss’ arm, and the controller is colored similarly with his weapon. Exclusively available in Japan and Asia. As with other console bundles, it includes a copy of The Phantom Pain and other freebies that are not revealed as of now. (Based on past experience though, Sony’s sure to throw a PlayStation Plus voucher here too).
Here are more pictures of the PlayStation 4 bundle:
Here’s an image of the 1:1 scale replica arm…
…and a size comparison between the two arms.
These bundles certainly have a lot to offer to Metal Gear Solid fans. As such, there’s a huge chance that these bundles will sell out fast. In fact as of this writing European stores are reporting sell-outs on the Collector’s Edition. Plan ahead, guys!
