Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots now available on PSN (for PS3)

More than six years after its release, and two rereleases later (MGS4 25th Anniversary and The Legacy Collection), Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is finally available digitally on the PlayStation Store for PlayStation 3. The game released on the North American store yesterday, on December 16th, and today (December 17th) on the European and Japanese stores. The price is £15.99/€19.99/$19.99/AUD$29.95 or ¥2980 and has a file size of 30GB. Keep in mind that it’s easy to find the physical game for a much lower price, but if you really prefer to own it digitally, now you can.

    I’m not against people owning it digitally. But it was such a huge game, I can’t imagine how much space it would take up. I’ll keep my physical disc, thank you very much.

    • It’s 30 GB, added it to the post.

  • XIFF-5

    Personally, If I buy an MGS game digitally, I underestimate the MGS series.
    Because it’s worth it, a game like MGS should be bought as a physical disc.

    Btw I still keep my MGS(1,2,3,4) physical copies cuz they are still a piece of art.

      Some of us like having faster load times on an SSD with digital copies.

    6 years… holy shit

    • “It’s been 6 years, 6 months and 5 days.” Also, the game has lost weight.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Can you tell just by the sound of his price?

        • Mr. RHC

          Yeah, well you know, MGO2 is no more.

    • Big_Boss88

      Wow I’m getting old, it’s been that long o_O…

      • Rikimaru

        But the legacy of MGS will be passed onto the next generations!

  • Big_Boss88

    I wish it would come to PS4 ;(…or PC >:C. Well maybe when that PS Now streaming system releases we can play it, as it includes MGS4. I got it on my PS3 but I wanna make MGS collection on PS4.

    • MichaelPayneV

      PC would be much better, because Play Station already has 1 version, when PC has none.

      • Yeah, but it’s not on PS4 either. So if you have no PS3 but only a PS4 you cannot play it, since PS4 is not backwards compatible.

        • Big_Boss88

          True this is a problem for some people and is also the reason why we’re gonna get pretty many definitive editions/rereleases of old games on PS4. Like FF13 trilogy etc.

        • MichaelPayneV

          But the probabilities for a PS4 owner to have already been played MGS4 on PS3 are bigger then for a PC Gamer.

          Do you get what i’m trying say?

        • Alex

          I saw it on PS Now I believe.

  • Very Good Afternoon to all! Friday from the Realest Gentlemen to share our newest video, really hope ya can check it out and give us some feedback and comments! Thank you in advanced, we are really getting to the meat and potatoes of the game! Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

  • Chris Redfield

    unfortunately will never be released for my X360 :-/

  • mr white

    It Still the best game ever

  • Ninja_Se7eN

    Has it really been 6 years since the last major MGS release (I’m not counting Peace Walker and Ground Zeroes)? Man that’s too long without having a full MGS to play.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Definitely count Peace Walker, it really was major MGS release to the point where Kojima at first was going to call it MGS5.

      • Jonny Tanna

        Agreed, especially since most of the schmaltzy moments were removed in Peace Walker, which paved the way for the more mature representation in the current games

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        Don’t get me wrong, Peace Walker is a great game! I loved completing it in Co-Op with a friend of mine!
        The story is great!

        The only reason I left it out was because it is in fact missing some features to be PSP compatible.
        I really missed crawling and hiding in lockers :P.

        • No Place For Hayter

          I REPEAT YOU CANNOT MOVE WHILE LYING DOWN! “WHHHHAAAATTTTT?!?!, OK FINE GEEZ”, thankfully they designed the game so you never needed to.

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            I bet that reply wasn’t for me :P.

  • Invader_skoodge

    That’s ….not a good deal at all. I swear I just saw this game for like $5. It’s a 6 year old PS3 game. It would make sense if they released it for PS4 at that price. But I’m sure people will buy this so… fudge it.

  • hesoyamdonMonster

    does it mean MGO- metal gear online will be relaunched ?

  • PrinceHeir

    Wow!! I think i need to replay MGS4 soon!

    But so many games i have and so little time 🙁

    And wow 6 years since MGS4!! That’s more than half a decade!
