Special Edition Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain PlayStation 4 announced


A special edition Metal Gear Solid V PlayStation 4 console has just been announced for the Asian market.

The system has the same red and gold colors as Snake’s bionic arm, the controller is colored after Snake’s gun. Both the console and the controller are decorated with a Diamond Dogs logo.


A release date and price are to be announced at a later date.

  • I was wondering where the red color was coming from. Then i remembered the bionic arm…

    The controller is cool.

    • cardboardbox engineer

      oh,, i would love to see this episode,, do you know what they are looking at? I’m guessing a hot chick with a tail [if you catch my drift]

      • Shalashaska

        haha i loved this show back before their father…. in the hospital.. you know when he makes the deal with the devil (spoiler).. and then i continued watching till he gives his own soul for a deal and he is taken into hell .. after that.. it just went down hill once they started bringing in misha every second episode .. it became more of a talking show between god and angels and bla bla bla bla .. that whole angels fallen thing was just too much for me.. i gave up :/

        • Big_Boss88

          Yea it was fantastic back then, but imo it is still really good. I just hope they end it with a great season/ending.

          • Shalashaska

            I know its still good but it hit the level that no show should hit “dang-this-is-just-too-much-level”… I just lost interest in it.. i’d rather have them hunt random awesome demons than follow that crazy god-angel-angel-is-god-demon-angel-fall-to-earth story line.. its so hard! ;'( Which is the season in which it ends with dean being shown in helll.. i remember the season after that started with him in purgatory?

          • Big_Boss88

            Supernatural slight spoilers, if some care lol.:

            I might not remember exactly sorry :D, haven’t seen the seasons for a while lol. But the first seasons were best. Just 2 bros hunting demons :), recent seasons have some amazing episodes too. Purgatory was at season 8 or 9…I think, when it starts with him in there.

            Dean being shown in hell was season 3 maybe, it was tough to watch ;(…

          • Shalashaska

            oh man i’ve gotta check it out if you say.. i’ll try getting a dvd from a friend or checking up on Tv or something 🙂

        • No Place For Hayter

          Yeah, That’s around the same time I stopped watching it too, lol.

      • Big_Boss88

        This part is from Season 4 gag reel, which is included in the DVDs so it wasn’t in actual episode. Anyway this was soooo funny lol :D. Couldn’t find a proper full gag reel video, but here is one ;). I remember them both saying OH RLY, OH RLY to each other before it starts :P.

        I love Supernatural <3, gotta watch the latest season soon.

  • Ravenous

    Hmm…red, gold and black…I’ve definatly seen worse 🙂
    If I didn’t already have a PS4 I would’ve wanted to get this.

  • Xomak

    What version of the game comes with this? I need the Collectors Edition and a PS4…. Please give me both!

    • They haven’t specified yet.

  • well, it was obvious that we would eventually get this. and that’s the reason i haven’t bought a PS4 yet. i’m glad that the wait was worth it because this looks cool.

    • Big_Boss88

      I’m kinda jealous to those who get this >;C … <3

      • hehe the rewards of patience

  • Invader_skoodge

    If it wasn’t 3x cheaper to upgrade my PC I would totally get this PS4. But I think I’m happy with my ps3 and PC. That could change when September comes.

  • SonOfBigBoss

    Thanks for everything Nyxus It was good to discover that mgs had such an awesome community

  • SonOfBigBoss
  • PrinceHeir

    The red color is very different compared to the Type-0 HD one.

    Man so many PS4 bundles!!! I want my red PS4 or Blue one as well!


  • Hot damn, is this gonna be Japan only as well?!! I would sell my PS4 for this one.

    • They haven’t announced that yet but it will probably be Japan exclusive, just like the GZ FOX Edition was.

      • cardboardbox engineer

        I hope not, I still don’t have a ps4, this one would be a good buy for me,,, hope it’s not japan exclusive

      • A shame really 🙁

        • Just read on IGN that it’s apparently for Asia.

  • Bramdeman

    They went from announcing nothing to announcing everything. It’s like the fappening all over again.

  • btw, does anyone here know if there are differences between American and Japanese PS4’s?

    Like voltage or movies/videogames playback, internet or any other features?

    • PrinceHeir

      Video Games are pretty much the same region as US(Region A) same with movies.

      Not sure about the voltage, but i did used a Japanese PS2 on US soil and it work fine.

      Japanese has 100 Volt while use has 120 Volt. Just use an extension instead of plugging in on a outlet.

      Other than that, it’s pretty much the same(same thing with Vita) which is awesome 🙂

      And you can make multiple accounts and put it in English. So the thing is just as the same as buying one in the US.

      • thanks man! that’s really useful

  • kirtanloorii

    @Nyxus I know it’s a little off topic, but Robert Peeler confirmed that the steam version will support trading cards and profile backgrounds (unlike GZ).: https://twitter.com/popcicle/status/573177469856956417

    • Kol Leqejza

      pls, explain! don’t get it.

      • kirtanloorii

        Steam (pc) games usually reward you with digital trading cards and profile backgrounds. These are usually game specific. As an example: http://steamcommunity.com/id/kirtanloorii/ You can see my background if from Final Fantasy XIII. That’s because FF13 supports steam trading cards and backgrounds. You wont find anyone on steam with a Ground Zeroes background, because it is not supported. The Phantom Pain is supported. So you can expect TPP related customization options if you get the steam version.

        • Kol Leqejza

          first i thought TPP on steam will have more gameplay. have fun with ur wallpaper

          • kirtanloorii

            Lol. Why would you think that steam players would get more gameplay than PS4 people? They are clearly the favorites of Kojima Productions. I will have fun with my game AND my wallpapers, thank you.

          • Kol Leqejza

            i only play on consoles, that’s why i knew shit. final fantasy 13 had this kind of thing, too. for several achievements u got wallpapers. i like that feature. hoping, that TPP will get that too on consoles

  • It’s such a beautiful red. Oh my.

  • Ninja_Se7eN

    I hope they sell that DS4 seperatly!
    I already have a PS4 but I would like to get my hands on that DS4!

  • Shalashaska

    Ok ok.. ok..I got an announcement .. SOMEONE PLEASE PLEASE BUY ME THAT THING! :'(

  • Big_Boss88

    So next stop for ultra hype train, E3 and epic last trailer+other stuff :O?

    Now just few weeks until get Bloodborne :D, will keep me busy. Btw anyone else getting BB too?

    • PrinceHeir

      Already preordered the CE 🙂

      Also The Evil Within Assignment DLC is coming March 10 next week 😀

      Did you bought the DLC as well? ^^

      • Big_Boss88

        Nice I didnt get the CE for Bloodborne ;), was first gonna buy it when pre-ordered BB yesterday. But these darn local stores didnt have them anymore wth ;(… and was too lazy to search elsewhere lol. But for TPP will definitely buy early :D.

        If you can’t defeat them monsters, your knight in shining armor(me) shall arrive to help!

        Hmm I think I will also buy the DLC ^_^. Also pre-ordered FF Type-0 HD which come 20th March :D, includes FFXV demo <3 mmmm…

        • PrinceHeir

          Lol i also paid full the CE of FF Type-0 HD, but my brother is going to play that game.

          Haha yes we should play some Bloodborne sometime!

          Btw are you also getting Revelations 2? I kinda want it, but i already have many things on the way this month.

          Not to mention tons of Anime’s are also coming and i have to save money for The Phantom Pain Special Edition 🙂

          But if you did get Revelations 2, message me on PSN so i’ll try and see if i can get the game and play with you ^^

          I’m sure the game is region free and can play with different region of players.

          PSN: PrinceofXIII

          • Big_Boss88

            Nice to see others excited too for same games like Bloodborne!

            Sure I will add you this week Prince-chan :D, my PSN is B1g_Boss88.

            I dunno how I feel about RE:Rev2, watched some dude play it. I maybe buy it later as I heard it could release as physical when all episodes are out. Im not a fan of episodic :(.

            Aye gotta watch anime too and netflix+play the games xD. Gonna be busy lol, but yeah it’d be cool to try coop in BB. I might try solo first because it will be most challenging :D.

            Anyway, gotta go sleep g’night Diamond Doggies, chat with ya later <3!

        • turkishgamer35

          waiting that game since 2006 when you have FF Type-0 HD play that demo first for me:)

    • MrVux007

      ME ME ME!!!!

    • CodeBox

      Yes! I Already Pre-Ordered BB, I can’t wait to explore that city and slay me some monsters!

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      First we start slow: Died and died and died with bloodborne for months =)
      Then you become a witcher and start the wild hunt
      Then you become a fuc/$& Big Boss with a Metal gear ; your diamond dogs and created outer heaven.

      Oh boy im so happy to live in this era

  • psychomantis18

    I’m happy that it’s a pretty boring design as I already bought a PS4 for Ground Zeroes and didn’t want to fork out more for another like I would of if it had featured some sweet Yoji artwork

    • No Place For Hayter

      Whether it’s boring or not it is the first actual special console that wasn’t a simple HDD cover swap and or whole colour change, the console is actually unique.

      • psychomantis18

        And your point…???
        Uniqueness is irrelevant as to whether or not I like a design.

        • No Place For Hayter

          I was simply pointing that even if you don’t like the design it is the first unique PS4 I have ever seen, because every other PS4 special console wasn’t actually special and was a simple HHD cover or colour swap, I didn’t say you are supposed to like it or that it is unique therefor you should, I was simply saying “But look it’s the first unique PS4” sorry if my comment came across rude it was not my intent. I wasn’t trying to get you to like the design through its uniqueness so I don’t see why you needed to comment like that.

          • psychomantis18

            Interesting…. It’s unique… A unique PS4 that I will still not be getting.

            I’m not being hostile, i’m being up-front; I genuinely do not understand the relevance of your response to my comment sorry

          • No Place For Hayter

            No biggy, It wasn’t about being hostile more about coming across as snarky and upset, the way you were being up-front about it came across as uncaring and snarky (to me personally of course, I don’t think anyone tries to be in anyway rude on purpose) I mean I’m not here to over analyze your comment and create some huge discussion on how to create the perfect comment for me, lol because that would be retarded and insane, just had to poke back to get a bigger picture, the only “problem” (quotes because it isn’t) with your comment is that it wasn’t worded for my personality (And like I said expecting such a thing or trying to get you to do such
            a thing would result in me being sent to a mental house), and that is why it came across that way for me, which is no ones fault lol, for me it would be worded like you said the second time “I genuinely do not understand the relevance of your response to my comment”, though now I understand, so I’m like “Ohhhhhhhh”. gotta get a grasp on who people are in a text environment so there are no common misunderstandings 🙂

          • psychomantis18

            No worries. God’s in his heaven. All’s right with the world

  • No Place For Hayter

    WOW, OMG! This is the first time I am seeing an actual special console that isn’t simply HDD cover swap but is actually a special console, I am surprised, EPIC!

  • LuxAlike

    *Sees article title*

    Is it…?

    “…just been announced for the Asian market”.

    Yeah, thought so.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Always, lol.

  • Sivolc


  • Adamska

    i still don’t have a PS4. I think it’s some kind of divine warning.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I wish I didn’t have a PS4 so I could buy this, lol.

      • Big_Boss88

        Me too lol -_-, but I bought it year ago for GZ. It was worth it ;).

  • kirtanloorii

    I would buy this on day 1… If I didn’t already have a PS4.

  • Shiragama

    Well guys I’m not that type of guy who advertises something but please go over here and sign this petition for selling the collectors edition for pc. while I understand they probably won’t release the whole box with arm and steelbook, they could at least release all the dlcs for pc with the making of.

    Yeah, would be cool if you would sign.


    • MichaelPayneV

      I did, and also hope more people too.

      Even if you are not gaming on PC, please sign it, do it for the Community, let’s help each other achieve our goals, all right, let Kojima/Konami know that your fellow PC Brothers deserve the Collectors Edition as well, that you want them to treat us Equal no matter the platform.

      PS: Don’t confuse Equality with Parity.

    • Kol Leqejza

      dude, ALL DLC’s will already be included on the steam version.

      • Shiragama

        No. The steam version ”only” has the DLCs which are in the Day1 Edition.

        • Kol Leqejza

          so what? u still get better graphics.

          • Shiragama

            so what ? It’s more important for me having all of the possible content which is available for a game. Even more than just graphics.

          • Kol Leqejza

            i know how u feel… i’ll only get 5 dlcs cos of i play w/ ps3.

            i personally think, or rather hope, that all that MGO DLC will be earned during leveling up, or u will get golden tranq. gun if you made 1000 headshots w/ tranqs. just like in BF & COD. for those singleplayer DLC’s… i imagine that u will unlock those by leveling up ur R&D team. a confirmation by kojimaprod. would be nice…

    • Big_Boss88

      I signed it too. I can sort of understand how you feel if can’t get it on PC. But if it don’t happen even using petitions, well I’m so glad PC players can get to play MGSV too 🙂 and that is the most important thing. I wanna buy it for my brother and CE would be nice for him.

  • MrVux007

    good to see Kojima is showing love to the main fanbase 🙂

    • MichaelPayneV

      I think is Konami you are talking about here or Kojima Prod., not Hideo, if something Hideo treats us as 1 Group, Metal Gear Fans.

      • MrVux007

        Kojima is the head of Kojima productions….ergo Kojima productions = Kojima…. and yes Playstation platform was and always will be the strong roots of MGS *main* fanbase….and Kojima knows that and he delivers with gifts such as these 🙂

        • turkishgamer35

          agreed games like resident evil,final fantasy always sells better on ps because just like you said main fanbase is there and ground zeroes prove this once again even ps3 version alone sells better than xbox one and x360

  • CodeBox

    That Controller is Awesome! If I can’t get that separately (already have a PS4) then I will have to at least make a skin for my controller to look just like it!

  • MrVux007

    So guys…are ya prepping your old MGO clans ….or starting fresh? ^^

    • solidsnack

      first time playing metal gear online aside from peace walker so i’ll be looking to join!

      • turkishgamer35

        dude mgo2 was great actually only multiplayer game spend many hours and played until servers down only problem was game have a lot of cheaters if they fix that problem in mgo3 gonna be great

    • turkishgamer35

      starting fresh hopefully metal gear informer clan 🙂

    • Big_Boss88

      Fresh for me :).

  • AbdElRahmanSnake

    i wish it’s sold separately so i can buy it along with the limited edition

  • your new ps4…

    • No Place For Hayter

      Now that is funny, thankfully though even after seeing this I personally can’t see iron man when looking at the console.

  • Vegas

    unpopular opinion: i prefer black :/

    • No Place For Hayter

      Don’t worry black is just as popular as ever 🙂
      I like black more to but the appeal for me is that it is…

      A) The first unique PS4 I have seen

      It is good that you prefer black, that way you won’t want to buy this, because already having a console and wanting this hurts 🙁

      • Vegas

        If I wanted tbis it would burt so much because i already have my PS4 :c but there is now a goal in my life: MGS5 collector edition. Not that i am a collector, but this game is special and i want the full package 😀

  • turkishgamer35

    unlike other ps4 special editions this one really looks like a “special” if konami release this olso on europe definitely gonna buy this
