According to Konami Europe, next week there’ll be more info on pre-orders for the collector’s edition in EU countries

Since the collector’s edition for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was announced earlier this week, only a couple of stores have started taking pre-orders, leaving fans in many countries eagerly awaiting their chance to secure their copy. But don’t worry yet, it appears your chance is yet to come.


According to Konami Europe, next week there will be more information on pre-orders in EU countries regarding the collector’s edition. They assured worried fans who have been unable to pre-order thus far that it ‘should be fine’. As to the availability in specific countries, Konami Europe response was that this edition should be available ‘worldwide’ – more or less implying every EU country will get it. So keep an eye on your local retailer(s) next week.

Update: According to Ken Imaizumi, senior producer at Kojima Productions, the US version of the collector’s edition should also be available next week.

For an overview of all the different versions of the game, go here.

    Nice, I was planning to pre order from , But I will wait if any other store has it with a lower price.

  • lostsnak182

    I live in Ireland, “preordered” with Gamestop IE and they said there is no guarantee that they will have the C.E which is extremely frustrating since they are pretty much the only game retailer in the whole country (practically a monopoly for them) 20 euro deposit will cost €140 according to them. But according to a member of staff its been confirmed for Gamestop in the Nordic regions…

  • Covert Gamer

    Any info on US? Still no online retailers here that have it posted either.

    • Konami Europe said to contact @Konami for questions about the US. So far there doesn’t seem to be any other info though.

      • Covert Gamer

        Thanks for the reply. I was unaware of even that much, so you’ve given me a place to start. Thanks man.

      • Silverius

        Im about to loose my shit, how is it possible there is no info or news about this (bashing konami, not the site I love it here) USA and Mexico play a vital role in sales in this continent along with Canada, they are dropping the ball so bad damn it….

    • Here’s an update by Ken Imaizumi:

  • Abudy Saad AlBaldawi

    So do any EU retailers ship to Malaysia?

  • Big_Boss88

    Good news for those who still desire it.

  • Adamska

    I am wondering how much it will cost in Brazil, everything here is so damn expensive.

    • Isso se vier pra cá… Mesmo assim vou ter q achar um jeito de comprar :b

    • Chris Jackson

      EU has it for about $80 extra in Canadian dollars. I cancelled ordering there right after Canada became available. If it’s 99 reals, that’ll suck hard.

  • iSolidus

    C’mon, daddy needs a Dutch CE.

  • Andrea Feletti

    Nice to hear it 😉

  • Sly Hyena

    YEAAA, i called two days ago, and they said they might not even get it, so i really hope this is true.

    • That would be annoying indeed, if what Bol said is true.

    • Big_Boss88

      Too bad that it seems my stores don’t ship to foreign countries, otherwise I would suggest them.

  • Bramdeman

    I have to say I’m happy I orderd mine at Game UK the day it was possible to do so. Something inside me tells me the demand is huge and they will never produce enough of the CE although there will be many of them.

    • Bramdeman

      And then they send me a mail confirming the weight issue… Confusing stuff.

  • MAG V Supreme

    I got a online copy but i am waiting on my local game stop store in Massachusetts To get extra copy When release date Hits. Anyone got info on collectors edition hitting gamestop.

    • lostsnak182

      read below i said something on it ;D

    • Mini gear

      im waiting here too my freind, were late with any US info

    • Next week for the US as well it seems:

      • MAG V Supreme


      • glitchbomb

        If you have a good relationship with your local GameStop, the trick is to put $25 (the minimum for SE per orders) down on the Day One Edition Preorder. Then as soon as the SE Preorder version is available call and have them switch it over. Saves precious time and you won’t have to drive down and find out they are sold out.

        Good luck brothers!

        • CrazyGuy207

          I was just there and the cashier just
          said that.

          • glitchbomb

            Yup. I worked there seasonal. If you have a good relationship with them they usually try their best to help you it.

      • CrazyGuy207

        Crap, I leave for basic training next week. By the time I get back they’ll probably be sold out.

  • Lautreck

    I don’t care i juste take the japanese premium package and it’s okay ^^
    Jocking thats nice wish the will learn us something usefull

  • Elmatoor

    Looks like I’m one of the lucky ones. I preordered mine the day after the announcement at gamestop.
    I live in Sweden and in a small town. I don’t know about other stores in Sweden if they take preorders for it.

  • PrinceHeir

    I already preordered the JPN Special Edition(with no arm), but hopefully the people who want the CE may get theres soon ^^

  • andy

    GAME in UK and Gamestop in Ireland so far anyway. £100 in UK since that is the RRP but of course Gamestop Ireland have to go the extra mile and have the ripoff price of €140, bastards.

  • CrazyGuy207

    I hope they release the option to buy the CE in the USA soon, I won’t get the chance after the end of this week.

    • Should also be available for pre-order next week, according to Ken Imaizumi:

      • CrazyGuy207

        Crap, next week is when I leave for basic training, so they might be sold out by the time I can pre-order. Oh well, at least I found out the release date before I leave.
        I don’t know how gifs work.

        • glitchbomb

          You need to get someone you trust to at least try and score t. You could always do what I mentioned earlier. That is of you can make the phone call.

          • CrazyGuy207

            It wouldn’t matter, because even if I did, I’m sure it’d be sold out in seconds. They don’t refresh the page every 5 seconds like a lot of us are doing, hahaha.

          • glitchbomb

            Defintely not with that additude. Haha. And there is no refreshing the page. No no no. You put 25$ on a day one edition at GS then as soon as it releases if they are cool will call you and transfer it over to the CE over the phone. Or you can call them as soon as you hear. It takes dedication man! You gotta want it.

          • CrazyGuy207

            Luckily I was able to get it on Amazon earlier today, so I don’t need to worry about it getting sent. And I have plenty of time to worry about payment.

          • MAG V Supreme

            what you think the delivery day and time for amazon for tpp?

          • CrazyGuy207

            Luckily I was able to get it on Amazon earlier today, Now I just need to get my money back from Gamestop. I just hope there’s no special preorder bonus from Gamestop. That’s usually why I give them my business.

          • Plissken

            MGSV Collector’s Edition now available at They’re already sold out of PS4 edition, but Xbox One is still available. The actual stores don’t have it in their system yet, but hopefully before the end of today or tomorrow they will in case you want the PS4 version

    • Shadow Rex

      Hahaha love your display pic man.

      • CrazyGuy207

        Thanks, you’re the first person to say anything.

  • Ian Reay

  • Darby Crash

    Hi everyone, i’m new here but i started following this site by the last couple of months almost daily. I always loved the mgs series since my brother bought mgs2, at the time i think i was twelve and i shot everything in sight without understanding a thing. With the years i played every title and fell in love with the mind blowing plots wich i think i understood only recently by re-playing all of them. I wanna thank everyone who keeps this site updated because it helped me a lot to cure my never ending hype for tpp.

    Speaking about the post, i hope gamestop italy allows to pre order the collector’s edition ’cause i want it so bad.

  • Shalashaska Has Landed

    Finally, they acknowledged and gave word on this. I was starting to transform into CM Punk with how he felt about his Ice Cream Bars, when it came to my MGSV Collector’s Edition.

  • kirtanloorii

    Oh goodie!

  • G Yoh Aquino

    CE for PC pleaaassse

  • Chris Jackson

    I pre-ordered on Canada’s Ebgames ~2 days ago (yes it’s the collector’s edition). Ebgames is a part of Gamestop, so it should be available soon…

  • Snorlax

    NA version sold out on Amazon.

  • Snorlax

    Still no news on the availibility of the CE in the Netherlands.

  • Ninja_Se7eN

    That’s good news for me I hope :).

  • Sly Hyena

    for everyone in the netherlands, konami germany answered a tweet, saying we can pre order this week at and game mania.

  • I’m getting the Premium Edition.
    The one with the 1:1 scale Bionic Arm.
