Preorders for MGSV: The Phantom Pain doing very well, PS4 Collector’s Edition most popular

Shortly after the announcement of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’s release date and various editions, stores around the world have started taking preorders. Despite the fact that the game is still six months away, it quickly shot to the top spots on multiple web stores. Generally, the PlayStation 4 Collector’s Edition seems to be the most popular version, selling out quickly on large web stores such as Amazon and GameStop.

In the UK, the Collector’s Edition is exclusive to GAME, and is currently still in the list of top selling games for PS4.

On Amazon Germany and Amazon US the PS4 CE was the number 1 best selling game shortly after it became available. When it first appeared on Amazon US it sold out within the hour. A second batch of preorders was made available later that day, once again selling out in a short time.

In Canada, the PS4 CE was the number 1 selling game on Amazon as well, with the Xbox One version at number 9.

In Japan, the Special Edition for PlayStation 4 was the best selling game as well, but other versions did well too, claiming spots at 6 other places in the top 100.

The game is also doing well in France and Sweden (where the CE climbed to number 3 at Webhallen.se). In Italy, the PS4 CE is currently the top selling game at Multiplayer.com, followed by the PS4 Day One Edition at 12 and the XB1 CE at 15.

GameStop US opened preorders yesterday, and the PlayStation 4 Collector’s Edition sold out within 2 hours. After the dust had settled, both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version could be found at number 1 and 2 respectively).

Also a top seller at Multiplayer.com and GameStop

These were just some examples, but it seems clear that the game is going to be very successful. Unfortunately a lot of people seem to have purchased the Collector’s Editions just to sell them on eBay for a profit. But let’s hope the majority of those preorders belong to the real fans.

  • Michael Montanez

    ugh FUCK people who buys these things just to sell them for super expensive on ebay! Hate that sooooooooooo much! Really hope the fans get their hands on it without getting ripped off!

    • Darby Crash

      There are already a $$ holes that sells collector’s editions at 300€ on ebay.
      These things make me nuclear.

      • MrVux007

        300????They deserve to be skinned alive for that pricing.

      • ThreeMadFrogs

        Doesn’t mean they’ll sell them though.

        • glitchbomb

          I have a feeling they will….its a long time till Sept.

      • LuxAlike

        They make me wild, no doubt.

      • Shalashaska

        They deserve to be jailed for ripping off fans -_- Everyone has issues in their lives, doesnt mean you can scam people.

      • Marxal

        Tbh it looks like I’m gonna have to get one from ebay unless some kind of miracle happens x-x

        • Darby Crash

          I prefer to get the day one edition instead of throwing my money on that people.
          The CE content that interested me, apart the bionic arm, is the behind the scenes blu ray. If i don’t manage to get a CE i’m sure someone will upload the blu ray on the p2p, but i’ll surely watch it with anger and need for vengeance.

        • Nelson W.

          Don’t do it!!!

        • GotNews4Ya

          No.. Just wait a few months.. they will reappear at local big box retailers.. probably on discount.. even some of the most limited edition things I have found at Walmart a few months after the game dropped.. just chilling.. by the systems.. It’s just amazing at the cool stuff you find when the games been out for a bit.

      • Big_Boss88

        Wow that sucks.

      • Shalashaska

        cant they block this from happening by keeping a track on how many pieces their product sells from one IP ? o.O

        • Perhaps but people could still get them from different stores. It’s probably difficult to stop this from happening.

          • Shalashaska

            true.. every store would need to implement it then.. I guess they could if the Game companies THEMSELVES FORCE the stores to do so

          • glitchbomb

            This is exactly what was attempted did @ GS, but you could buy more than one vesion (Ps3 PS4 xbone etc) and people would hit up diff stores and pay cash or use their friends.

        • Edward Wokhands

          People will just use a proxy or VPN to order a 2nd one. They should keep track of names and addresses with these too. If someone makes multiple accounts or even uses a new IP, if it’s going to the same address then they could block it. It’s really enraging to see people missing out because someone who makes more money wants to buy 10 at once and then make MORE money, leaving the poorer person to have to buy from one of these people for DOUBLE the price.

      • I been really busy to comment but I was able to pre order at game stop in those two hours haha. Also, right after, I got this on my finger.

        Don’t know why it always rotates my pictures :/

    • psychomantis18

      Same. It’s fucking disgusting. All retailers should try to limit special editions to one per customer and these shameless extorters should be treated like all scalpers should be treated…. with violent hostility

    • glitchbomb

      That right there was the main reason I made sure to try and let people in here know when the GameStop CE was being released. Most people here are hardcore fans. Anyone of us that wants to pay the initial asking price should be able to get a copy.

      I am interested in seeing how rediculously expensive these will get on eBay in say…August when its close to launch.

    • Alex

      What really sucks is Amazon seems to put no limits on quantity, and they don’t take payment until they ship it. So even people with no money can get a bunch, sell as many as they can on Ebay, then cancel however many they didn’t sell. There’s no penalties for cancellations.

    • Jessica Nolasco

      I hate it too when people do that and make it tons of money…they’re probaly not true metal gear solid fans…mabey.

    • OrderJesse

      I purchased 20 and sold them for $100+ each unit, it’s business. If people want them they should pre-order like the anyone who owns common sense and logic. People asked to be ripped off by not being stupid.

  • AlexFox92

    LATAM????!!!! please, CHILE!!!

  • Darby Crash

    Does gamestop italy allow CE preorders or is it exclusive to multiplayer.com?
    On GS site there are only day one editions available. I’m starting to get worried as days pass.

    • Not sure about that.

      • Darby Crash

        Well i’m waiting for news from my friend who works at gamestop but nothing happens.
        Already checked at multiplayer but they sold all out. I hope for a new round of preorders.

        • Hm yeah, over here in The Netherlands some of the stores that were supposed to have it don’t have it on their website yet either. Not sure if it’s still coming, maybe it is.

          • iSolidus

            Yep, still waiting for a Dutch one. I’ll ask Konami Germany for an update.

          • You can order it at 12Game.com or Yourgamezone.nl.

          • iSolidus

            Mijn dank is groot!

          • Bramdeman

            De mijne was dat ook. Hopelijk krijgen we ‘m optijd binnen. 😀

          • Bramdeman

            Ik heb Yourgamezone een mailtje gestuurd met de vraag hoe of ze zeker zijn dat ze voldoende exemplaren hebben. Na amper een uur kreeg ik een mail terug met de bevestiging dat ze 50 exemplaren voor de PS4 krijgen en 10 voor XBOX One. We kunnen er dus van uitgaan dat het keurig netjes en optijd geleverd wordt.

          • Good to know! To translate (for the other users): this store said they are getting 10 copies of the Collector’s Edition for Xbox One and 50 for PlayStation 4. Makes you wonder if these ratios are the same for other stores. And still the PS4 version is sold out much quicker, and selling better at pretty much every store. It’s quite obvious the PlayStation version is going to be the best selling one (not surprising of course).

          • Bramdeman

            This is a small retailer. Chances are the bigger ones will get more copies here in the Netherlands.

            For those of you who where to late with ordering at Gamestop or Amazon, maybe you can try one of the Dutch sites Nyxus mentioned.

          • Yes, Bol and Game Mania will probably get more, but perhaps the ratios will be more or less the same? A ratio of 1:5 when it comes to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 copies respectively. Because Konami / the stores probably know which version is going to sell better.

  • MrVux007

    No surprises here ^^…kudos to all who are getting the CE,ill be just fine with my special edition 😀

    • You’re getting the Japanese Special Edition?

      • VIC BOSS

        Where you get this piece of art?

        • Amazon Japan.

          • VIC BOSS

            Maybe some copy will be available in west market

      • MrVux007

        yep,my friend from Tokyo is getting it for me ^^….but ill buy the standard in US aswell…unless they indeed port the special edition outside Japan,then i will buy it myself 🙂

  • Batzi

    Got the Premium Edition and the CE both pre-ordered and not selling anything to anyone, they’re both mine!

    • ThreeMadFrogs

      I’d love to get the Premium Edition for the full scale arm. But I’m getting the CE with the 1/2 scale for now 😛

    • Big_Boss88

      You got both :D, that’s pretty awesome. I will buy it second time for PC + to my bro, but still waiting for pre-orders to start on Steam.

      • Raymondius

        Hey, bud, could I ask you something? I have never pre-order a thing in Steam. Do you have any idea of when the Day One edition should become available? At first I thought that all I had to do was to buy it on, well, “day one”, haha.

        • Big_Boss88

          I don’t often pre-order games on Steam, but I’ve bought some like the RE1 remake and GZ.
          Honestly I got no clue when the pre-order for TPP come available to Steam store page sorry brother :(… Thought myself it would be up already, but it still say on the page “Coming soon” instead of September 15.

          I believe we can start pre-ordering the Day One Edition when they change the page info and add the release date there.

          For what I know, it basically works like physical pre-order. You pay the full price, and get the game right away on the day of release. So we can buy it before “day one” ;). Also I think there was the possibility to kinda download the game beforehand at some point, so when release date arrive you can start playing immediately. At least so it worked with my RE1 remake imo :).

          • Raymondius

            Thanks a lot, 88! 😉 I will be checking Steam store every day.

            Btw, would you mind if we exchange Steam nicknames for possible Mother Base Infiltration? It would be really nice to have MGI friends on Steam! 🙂

          • Big_Boss88

            Sure and hope I was able to help :D, uhh mine is Big_Boss88… others can add too if want.

            -_-…
            Oh maaaan lol, I sometimes wonder if I should try thinking of a more unique user name. I use this for many things these days and love Big Boss :3 but still y’know ;).

            Hmm gotta start playing GZ again on both PS4 and PC, been occupied with other games for a while.

          • Raymondius

            Hahaha, maybe you should, didn’t want to call you BB or Boss cause there are so many!! Hahaha. In Steam you can change it whenever you want, I think. Still, it is ok, you will be 88 to me. Or BB88. It’s kinda cool.

            Btw mine is Raymondius too.

          • Big_Boss88

            Yes there is so many of similar name lol, I’ve thought about other name but not sure if should change.

    • Where did you get the Premium?

      • Batzi

        Nippon-Yasan.com

        Sold out though.

    • Alberto Sánchez

      I hope being rich like you one day and being able to waste my money like you too.

    • Shalashaska
    • glitchbomb

      Me too! We need to high five with our robo hands!

  • ThreeMadFrogs

    Am I the only one who gets depressed when they see the countdown timer on this site? 24 weeks… ugh.

    • The community asked for it. 😛 But see it as something to look forward to.

      • ThreeMadFrogs

        I get that 😛 Maybe if it was just in days it wouldn’t feel so bad haha. 171 days.

        • Big_Boss88

          I think the weeks is better, 171 days is such a huge number. 24 it feels like so little time :3.

          • ThreeMadFrogs

            But at least that number would get smaller every day. The weeks ticker only moves once a week.

          • Big_Boss88

            Hmm well, you kinda have a good point there ;). But we’ll survive :D.

          • Cobra

            24, you say?

          • Big_Boss88

            Haha that was so cool :D. I’d never seen this before.
            Maybe he is talking to Kaz or Ocelot lol XD.

          • Cobra

            There were a few others, thankfully!

          • Big_Boss88

            Lol, Big Boss really likes them Calorie Mates.

          • kirtanloorii

            Just close your eyes and pretend it’s Big Boss, lol

      • Raymondius

        What about a second countdown for, y’ know, unlucky PC costumers, haha. Maybe a little one under the consoles one.

        • You can’t unless you pay for the premium version. 😉

          • Raymondius

            Man, this industry is killing me. I don’t like being poor anymore. 🙁

            I’ll start a petition for that countdown, Nyx, you can’t stop us PC gamers! (I’m not even master race though, my laptot is pretty shitty, but much better than last gen haha).

    • Mini gear

      i think like this, just check and look at that one week is gone every sunsday 🙂

    • Edward Wokhands

      Nope, because last time I looked at it it said 25 weeks. Now it says 23! That went really quick and I got a lot done in that time. (I’m making a game while I wait for this game and got some of the art and programming done :P)

      • ThreeMadFrogs

        What are you working on?

        • Edward Wokhands

          It’s a puzzle platformer. I have a few other ideas in the works. You can see the progress of the art on my deviantart: http://theriggermortis.deviantart.com/

          Just created a profile. I’m a beginner when it comes to drawing so please don’t be too harsh. 😛 Look through my gallery and you’ll find a bearded sprite dude. That’s the current game. Well, it’s a rough sketch of what the protagonist will end up looking like.

          It’s called “blindman game.” (The sprite not the game :P)

  • Big_Boss88

    Just as I expected, the best game ever coming up so of course it will be super wanted :D. I think it’s on the top in some Finnish stores too, but not 100% sure.

    GZ sold a lot last year, and I can only imagine how much TPP is gonna sell :). It makes me happy to see my favorite game going to be so successful.

    Now just 24 weeks left for my lovely CE to arrive <3… don't worry people the weeks will go quite fast, even if might not feel like it right now.

    • Vegas

      Stop talking about CE when there is people around here who only can afford Day One D’: YOU MONSTER!

      • Big_Boss88

        I’m already a demon :)…

        Okey I’ll stop ;C.

        • Vegas

          LOL that was smooth xD

      • Shalashaska

        stop talking about day one when there are people here who will have to wait 3 months to buy it ! :'(

        http://stream1.gifsoup.com/view5/2743855/baby-cry-o.gif

        • Vegas

          Stop talking about 3 months when there is people who don’t even know what MGS is. Thats sad, dude. Just… sad.

        • Vegas

          But seriously 3 months? Damn :/ can’t u borrow money from someone close and pay it later?

        • Edward Wokhands

          3 months? You can pre-order it and they won’t take the payment until they dispatch it! So you could pre-order and then just make sure you have the money by the end of August. Unless you mean 3 months after September? :O Christmas?

    • Shalashaska
  • ErGabe

    I think Amazon is the way to go for this kind of stuff. Last time I pre ordered on gamestop it never came in. Had to go to the store and snatch the last CE. Ever since I just buy on Amazon, including this one hehehe

  • Silverius

    As if there was any doubt TPP and the CE wasn’t going to sell like hotcakes.

  • Cobra

    Collector’s Editions of both versions are still being listed here in Australia via EB and JB Hi-Fi. Granted, we got completely gouged for it (Though I can’t really comment; I’m supporting it by buying one), but given our dollar’s going pretty crappily, it might be worth a look for international buyers who’re having trouble finding one and don’t mind the wait.

  • OD2000

    Real sad that the CE is next-gen only but it makes sense. Well I guess the D1E is alright too.

  • Ninja_Se7eN

    And yet they keep telling they don’t know anything about the Collector’s Edition here in Portugal :'( !

    • Mr.Pony

      Provavelmente só pelas lojas de Lisboa ou Porto é que se deve conseguir arranjar

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        Pois, mas eu tenho perguntado na fnac e na new game em Lisboa e nada feito :(.

        • Mr.Pony

          Mandar vir do UK talvez seja mais viável. Nunca comprei edições epeciais por isso também não sei com que frequencia ou facilidade se conseguem arranjar em Portugal

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            É muito difícil, normalmente ninguém sabe nada até chegarem, se chegarem.
            Encomendar do UK foi o que pensei logo, mas é exclusivo da Game do UK e eles não enviam essa edição para cá por pesar mais de 1kg :(.

    • Snake

      Também tou farto de perguntar na megamania ou na Gamingreplay e não sabem de nada, pessoal em Portugal e sempre os últimos a ter as cenas fogo gostava mesmo ter Collector’s Edition mas em fim vamos esperar

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        Pois, no toca a tecnologia às vezes é quase como se não fizéssemos parte da Europa :(.

    • Pablo Andres Martinez Garcia

      from Mexico: I hear you bro 🙁

  • No Place For Hayter

    No surprise, after waiting for 5 years, people must have, lol.

  • PrinceHeir

    Got my JPN Special Edition preordered(no arm), sucks that i didn’t ordered at Yesasia since they have free shipping(d’oh)

    I can’t believe MGSV is almost here!!! FFXV seems to be developing along nicely as well as Kingdom Hearts III.

    Now i just hope The Last Guardian and Gravity Rush 2 appears this gen.

    • Invader_skoodge

      Last Guardian is like a Pipe Dream now. A few people from Team ICO just kinda made their own TLG (trailer below) so I don’t know what to think anymore.ざんねん だね and Gravity Rush 2 would be very cool. I loved the first one.

    • Edward Wokhands

      The FF15 demo is out this week!

  • PrinceHeir

    @Big_Boss88:disqus

    Btw just finished The Assignment and they really revealed a lot of things in this game and my suspicion about Leslie came true after all(don’t know why they didn’t revealed it on the main game) as well as Joseph’s where abouts after the game.

    Damn intense as hell!! I actually don’t mind another The Evil Within with no weapons and items and only sneaking and some occasional one time environmental weapons.

    Stealth + Survival Horror is really an amazing mixed! Definitely prefer this instead of Action + Survival Horror.

    DLC was kinda quick though, play time is around 3 hours and 30 minutes(missed a lot of things on the way) and only died 6 times compared to the 50+ i had with the main game.

    Now i can’t wait for The Consequence DLC! Don’t really care about The Keeper DLC(will play maybe a few rounds and all), but i really want another game with Kidman as the main character!

    Definitely my GOTY 2014! I need to play Bayonetta 2 so i can compare which is the best game of 2014 🙂

    MGSV looks to be my GOTY 2015 now that UC4 got delayed.

    • Big_Boss88

      Nice :D, glad to hear you liked it. I will buy it too at some point, but I’ve been really busy with my Dragon Age, although progressing slowly as hell lol. Then next week other games start popping up, but maybe I get time to play the DLC :).

      I think Bloodborne, The Witcher 3 and TPP are the games that I’m excited to play the most this year.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, I need to play the DLC too, unfortunately though I’m going to wait for s complete edition with all the DLC (as that is the only way i ever get DLC) that way I get to play the game again 🙂 I stopped playing midway through on the hardest mode because I don’t get anything for the hardest mode lol, buying a complete edition would give me many reasons to really play the heck out of the game again.

      • PrinceHeir

        Yeah i want a Complete Edition with DLC on disk, all content on disk, option to have full screen mode and add in Japanese voices.

        That would be a perfect release for me!

  • LuxAlike

    Smells of scalpers…

  • Marxal

    So it’s like near impossible to get the Collectors Edition now?
    I’m literally crying irl.

    • Depends on where you live. It may also become available in the US in other stores, Wasn’t Walmart supposed to get it as well?

      • Marxal

        I live in New Zealand and was planning on saving enough to order one in the US and have a friend pick it up for me and send it over. But idk if I’ll have enough money to get it in a rush should they open up again. And I sure as hell can’t afford anything on ebay. x-x

        • Hmm… It’s still available in Canada (Future Shop for example). Maybe that’s an option?

          • Marxal

            Maybe, thanks for the heads up. I dunno if I can get the money in time but I’ll definitely keep it bookmarked. Maybe I’ll try and get it under my student loan or something. x-x

          • Good luck, hopefully you’ll manage to obtain one.

        • Cobra

          Ordering one from Australia’s probably your best bet if you’re a Kiwi, they’re not sold out here yet (Which you could probably attribute to the fact that they’re $250 here, plus Metal Gear’s never really been that huge here to begin with); though admittedly it’s not a huge improvement over what all the jagoff scalpers are charging.

  • vic boss

    Does anyone know if on Gamestop NA one can change the shipment day? I chose the standard way and is 3 to 5 business days because yesterday I didn’t have the money to buy express, so now I want to change it to express but don’t know if they’ll be able to do it at the store.

    • Chris Jackson

      I think you can just email customer service about that.

  • Invader_skoodge

    Wonder if Konami executives are going to spend much time and money on advertising now that it’s clear MGSV is one of the most hyped anticipated game of the year.

  • Chris Jackson

    Got my copy on EB games website (Canada). Must have gotten it on the first day since sold out soon after.

    • korruption

      Same here, I’m glad I was either quick or lucky. Guess they’re out of touch with how hyped this game is.

      • Perhaps they will restock between now and the release.

        • korruption

          Konami had better restock and market the hell out of this game if it’s truly Kojima’s final Metal Gear.

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            It has been “truly Kojima’s final Metal Gear” since MGS3 xD.

            If you take into account that Konami is struggling financially and doesn’t have that many blockbuster franchises left, I think it’s safe to assume it won’t be the last Metal Gear game developed by Kojima :P.

  • Machine Gun Kid

    All of the gamestops here in the u.s. didnt even start takeing pre orders until friday and within hours they wer gone. I tried to order it lastnight online but ended up going into gamestop today and getting it. Guy at gamestop said i got lucky.

  • Kol Leqejza

    would be awesome if V could rival with GTA V in terms of sales. V deserves it more. it’s going to be really revolutionary. it’s stealth-open world; never done before.

    • Big_Boss88

      I totally agree, it’d be awesome :).

    • korruption

      I hope it crushes GTA5, I hated that game. Kojima was worried over nothing. The REAL V deserves it WAY more!

      …It’s worth mentioning not to take this comment too seriously. =]

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        I think everybody widely misinterpreted what Kojima meant about GTA5.
        Rockstar makes great open world games and think what Kojima meant is that he hoped the open world aspect of MGSV could rival with the quality of the open world aspect of GTAs.
        Because let’s face it, GTA and MGS have little in common in regards to game mechanics, story telling a pretty much everything else.

      • Kol Leqejza

        dude… totally agree! it had less content than san andreas. had a “story” that was bollocks… didn’t see any improvement in the sandbox formula. it even used assets from GTA IV, which is pretty lame considering the age of that game… it had some cool setpieces within mainmissions, but overall it was a disappointment, imo. multiplayer w/ friends is quite satisfying though. IF the servers would work all right, i guess…

        GTA V had no depth. MGS V on the other side seems to be a very sophisticated game. not only story, but gameplay, too. the strategic preparotions for missions (loadout & approach) & exploration will sell this alone for me. and because it’s MGS! 😉

        • Edward Wokhands

          I completely agree about GTA V. There’s just something about the layout of the map even that makes it feel smaller than San Andreas.

          San Andreas’s story took you on a long, slow tour of the map. You got to see every area and even then there were a crapload of secrets. You met so many interesting NPCs. I remember them ALL. In V you meet like 3 NPCs and they’re all dull. We learn nothing about them. V’s story took place in the city… and the desert. That was it. The army base (well, you run in and out in one mission, so you spend 10 seconds in there) and prison go ignored. Taking out little details like playing pool and being able to enter fast food restaurants took a lot of the “alive” feel that 4 had. 4 felt a lot more restrictive compared to SA but the world still feels alive and detailed and funny. Plus it had the masterpiece that was The Lost and Damned and Ballade Of Gay Tony. That was GENIUS how the story interweaves with 4’s. So overall I enjoyed 4 and it’s DLC way more than all of V including it’s online.

          There’s no humor in V’s sandbox really. The whole thing just feels static. Like a tech demo. They’ve added a few more details with the last update that help a little (more new cars and new NPCs and new NPC activities (unless I missed them the first time around)) but they need to add more and hopefully they will. I don’t care about the story in V because it’s so dull and I play games mostly for the story. I play V to sight see and look for secrets if I’m bored.

          Ground Zeroes… I’ve got SO much time out of that game. I’ve got 28 hours on Steam, about 30 on PS4 and 30 on PS3. Until last night I had no idea that there were so many tapes! So I just lay there watching the base in the rain listening to all the tapes and it was great. I thought we could only listen to the tapes we collected. So I have like 90 hours in Ground Zeroes on that tiny map. Can you imagine The Phantom Pain? There’s something about the AI, the controls, the vehicles… it never gets boring and I don’t know why. Plus the graphics on PC. Dear lord. Plus the story in TPP will hopefully be as good as or better than MGS3 and 4’s. I can’t wait!

  • Machine Gun Kid

    Already pre ordered the ce edition. Now with the le phantom pain ps4 and the full scale bionic and art book comeing to the west (not confirmed but there looking into it anyway) im all set. I want the full scale arm but dont want to have to buy the premium edition to get it.

  • Xomak

    Oh FFS, can’t pre-order till I get a new CC. The damned thing expires before the release date. F U!!! I can’t believe they’re capping pre-orders, they still have 6 months to fulfill them…

    We want our PC Collector’s Edition, please Metal Gear Community, sign this petition, help us get it, let Konami and Kojima Prod. know that we the PC and Console Metal Gear fans are 1 big united Group that will defend each other from Konami/Kojima in case they do something bad to any of us, to any subgroup (PC/PS/Xbox) something like not giving us PC Players the CE, or doing Parity between the PS4 and X1, things like that that are anti consumer

    I think the “Original Xbox One Policy” situation has proven that when a company like Microsoft wants to attack our fellow Communities, that we, the PC Community will intervene and help you, whether you are Xbox or PlayStation, no matter how much unintentional bad you bring to us (I’m looking at you, the loud minority from the Xbox Community that want us PC Players to pay for Xbox Live, instead of being on our side and claim Microsoft to not make them pay for Xbox Live as well, you know like a group) we will always help you when you are right, because we are only 1 community, WE ARE GAMERZ!

      Amen Brother we all need some PC love

    • Ken Imaizumi did ask sales and marketing about it:

      https://twitter.com/Ken1555/status/576471281966546944

      • MrVux007

        he might as-well say *nope,not gonna happen*…cuz if anything to those guys from SnM department,selling CE to PC would bring up a great deal of financial mumbo-jumbo,making it even questionable to start making CE for PC….as far as they are concerned the main market was and always will be on consoles(as much as some people would claim otherwise)….i signed the petition already,but i don’t see it happening judging from the numbers from petition…you would have better luck petitioning for better graphics on current gen(even tho that would add up much greater time for development,wich is not needed) consoles then this one :D….but hey look at this way,instead of getting the usual port a couple of years(not mentioning MGS3 and MGS4 since they werent released to PC-s at all) after the consoles version release,you got it at almost the same time as consoles did…so no need of saying (pc needs some love),cuz they already showed it by that 🙂 …..best of luck,lads

        • Well, it’s probably true that most of the audience is on consoles, and PlayStation in particular. So it’s kind of understandable from their point of view. Plus, most PC gamers seem to prefer digital anyway.

          • MrVux007

            but didnt they make a retail version of the GZ (for the PC)?

          • Yes they did, but costs of a collector’s edition are probably much higher and are PC gamers willing to spend 100 dollars or euros on it?

          • MrVux007

            you got a point on that one ….

          • Well, they might still make one, who knows. 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            I disagree, when is about CE, PC Gamers go Physical.

            EX. Max Payne 3, Witcher Series. etc.

          • MrVux007

            except the difference is Max Payne and Witcher series are considered mainly a PC game(since the majority of fans are on PC-s) …MGS is a different case mate….and yes you may ask why they created Ce for consoles for those games,well look at the sales of those same games on consoles,and then compare it to PC-s….you will understand then

          • MichaelPayneV

            Point is, we go Physical when we have a reason like a CE, plus as Konami said, GZ sales re “Solid” which means that TPP is on more PC Gamer’s Radars than before, which means that CE of TPP for PC would sell.

        • MichaelPayneV

          It doesn’t make any sense, i as simple as switching the Game Disk, that simple, all CE are the same no matter the platform, plus the CE also has Exclusive Digital Content, so why isn’t the PC Version getting it, considering that GZ PC Sales are “Solid” as said by Konami themselves?

          • MrVux007

            obviusly not *Solid* enough….i wouldnt know how simple it is,since i never was into the game development,game extras production (like you obviously were)….but i do know the deficit it creates if it isnt sold 🙂

          • Edward Wokhands

            I’d have thought they’d at least make a limited run of the CE for PC. MGS coming to PC this time is a big deal. Everyone is so excited about it. Look at the GZ discussion board on Steam, it’s just hundreds of posts about TPP. If those people heard about a CE they’d just at the chance to buy it. It’s silly for Konami to not make it. It would sell out in my opinion.

          • MrVux007

            it a publishing house KONAMI we are talking here (and a big one aswell)..who knows what they got under their sleeves,there is the possibity that they might release CE for PC if the sales for TPP explode,and then they release them on the later date….even tho that might piss of some PC people if they allready bought the standard edtion…at this point everything is possible,im not saying that you should be pessimistic,only be a cautious optimist 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            Usually when a copany avoids their PC Versions, usually they look for reasons to blame the Sales on the PC Community, so the simple fact that Konami had to call GZ Sales “Solid” and didn’t show them means that they are A LOT bigger then expected, and that Sony won’t let them say it, won’t let them let people know that a pretty Big number of people brought GZ, and keep in mind that we are talking about an already 9 months Old Game at the time it came to PC, and that it had barely any promotion, which makes it a miracle on it’s own that the Official respons to sales is “Solid”

            TL;DR: Point is, GZ sold more then well on PC, and TPP will sell even more then GZ on PC, since TPP is a Full Lenght&Price Game, not a Controversial 20$ 2 hours Campaign Game.

          • MrVux007

            ummmm Sony wont let them? barely had any promotion? what the hell has Sony anything to do with Steams policy about not revealing the sales of most of the games on steam……i dont know what the term *solid* means to you,nor do i know the total sales on steam….but by some uncany logic,it seems that you do….

            tl:dr dont talk out of your ass,and stick to the facts mate(for the sake of disscussion please)….there is still an option that CE will come to PC… SONY doesnt own Konami (as far as i know) (SnM department has its own policy about revealing information aswell)

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well that is True, but when talking about the Promotion, GZ for PC had barely no promotion, it didn’t even had a PC Trailer, like most Multiplats coming to PC, so they should be more then fine with the sales, even if they are not Big, because if someone is responsible for Low Sales is them, now us, the Gamers, our only responsibility is to buy 1 Copy, when Konami responsibility is to get as much people as possible to buy 1 copy, that’s not our job, from the moment i brought 1 copy, i did my Job.

            And i respect Konami for calling the sales “Solid” for not blaming sales numbers on the PC Community and how we PC Gamers are all pirates , like most companies do(Looking at you Ubisoft) instead Konami too it “as a Man” and accepted the possibility of low sales.

          • MrVux007

            if you really think that trailers *sell* the game then i apologise…i always tought that promotional videos (like demos,tech demos etc) were the main things for selling the game..they did publish a comparison video between PC and current gen consoles(so thats also promoting)…you also have to understand that PC stands for Personal computer,wich means that your computer has a high possibilty of not beeing the same build as the guy who has spent well over 2000+ $ on his build…so that is why most of the trailers these days are bassicaly console footage(so you know what to expect,since all consoles are more less the same ),and from that you know how worse or better your build might look like…also Konami is not at fault here mate,if the game has more less positive reviews/reception then if people dont buy the game,then the reason of low sales are on the consumers fault(and the semi-fault is on the publishers)…but if the game is bad in reception,and the sales are low,then its bassicaly game developers fault for creating a bad product…all in all i dont see (if the sales were low) how Konami is at the fault here….indeed there is great deal of pirating on PC side,but i dont see that as the reason to backlash the PC community cuz of that… always remember this one thing *Pirates gonna pirate. Buyers gonna buy. Cheapskates will wait till its $10 or less.* again i urge u to be just lil bit patient,CE for PC isnt ruled out…just dont point finger at the wrong guys here,both Konami and Kojima pro are doing their jobs well(IMO) 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            They didn’t , Yong was the one to make that Video Comparison.

            Point is the PC version had barely no promotion, which gives them no right to blame the Sale numbers on us, when it would clearly be their fault, that’s all i’m saying, but since even they called the sales “Solid” there is not reason to talk about it actually.

          • MrVux007

            ok,ill agree to disagree….

          • Barely any promotion? Konami made quite sure it was nearly impossible to miss this version:

            – Advertised on Twitter
            – Advertised on Facebook
            – Frequent code giveaways by Konami
            – A days long countdown on Twitter and Facebook
            – Announcement at a gaming event with a video
            – Shown at Kojima Station
            – Video card + Ground Zeroes bundles in Japan (also advertised on Kojima Station)
            – Shown at Japanese event
            – Prominently advertised on the official site (the only version with its own button in the sidebar)

            And probably more.

            It’s not fair to always act like you’re being mistreated or screwed over when it’s clearly not the case.

          • MichaelPayneV

            I was talking about Before Release, but failed to mention it, so my bad.

          • Many of those things happened before release.

          • MichaelPayneV

            But not a Trailer, or a Tech Demo Video showing the Settings.

          • That doesn’t mean anything, and certainly not that Sony has paid them.

          • MichaelPayneV

            “But hey, that’s just a Theory…a GAME Theory!”

    • Edward Wokhands

      I just signed. They’re silly if they don’t sell this. I’m willing to buy the PS4 version and the PC too… only because it’s MGS of course.

  • Mini gear

    having a ton of trouble changing to one day shipping, why does gamestop take so long to help 🙁

    • vic boss

      I was thinking of doing the same bro, but I can wait two or three more days after TPP releases, also I didn’t want to have any problem just because I wanted to change the shipping so I left it the way it was

      • Mini gear

        yeah, i can wait extra few days but not the twelf i was told

        • vic boss

          holy shi*, that’s a lot of time , I remember now that when I went to preorder the CE to gamestop they told me that they could ship it to my home in 9 to 12 days or they could receive it at that store in 3 to 5 days , both for free. That store is 4 blocks away from my house so obviously I choose the store. It sucks for us bro but the important thing here is that if we waited almost 3 years for the game, a couple of days will be nothing besides we’ll be receiving the CE. Right now there are people waiting for one to be available. Anyways hope you can change it to ship day one and if you do please let me know.

          • Mini gear

            welp, because i had to preorder in store im not allowed to change, oh well, just have to go on heitus from the internet for almost two weeks. also i wish theyd make this more accesible to the world, i feels like there being uncaring about every getting a fair chance

  • Shalashaska

    For people who were wondering were Pythonselkan was .. here you go
    Now here is my question.. How many of you ACTUALLY want to play as gray fox rather than Big Boss?
    (Beware that if you say you do, i will come through your Computer screen and body slam you to mars)
    Seriously though? I WILL be REALLY FURIOUS if i end up knowning that im playing as Gray fox.. yea he is a cool character.. but he is like Raiden in MGS.. he is still a side guy. Make another game for him.. I will REALLY Break this disc if Kojima has pulled some crap like that.
    Also.. I Got a question.. If Gray fox was here.. shouldn’t he like.. look OLD in the Cyborg suit rather than a young guy ?

    • vic boss

      I don’t think we’ll be playing as gray fox I mean the possibility is there but IMO it will not happen. Phytonselkan has really interesting theories in the video and one or two of those has to be true but as much as people blind themselves and as much as Kojima says we are playing as Big Boss the man who killed the boss at the end of mgs3 there has to be something we don’t expect from Kojima , he always fool us into thinking something else, I mean the shadow of snake in GZ, the face of the doctor that we never see, the voice that the doctor, ishmael and snake share and the fact that they changed the voice actor in the NA version and they left the voice actor in the Japanese version and that in mgs2 solid snake and solidus snake were voiced by the same guy in the Japanese version is something to think about. Again I don’t think we will be playing as Gray Fox but certainly don’t think either that we will be playing as the real big boss.

      • kirtanloorii

        That’s about what I think. I really like PythonSelkan’s theories, but his biggest theory is the one I believe the least. Which is Gray Fox. But I am open minded about the GZ simulation theory and the “V” snake not being BB theory.

        • Shalashaska

          im gonna pray kojima doesnt pull a raiden on us.. really gonna disappoint me then :/

          • The Raiden stuff in MGS2 was directly connected with the theme of the game, so it made sense there. There is no reason why Kojima would do it for this game. That’s the biggest problem with this theory: why would it be Gray Fox? Kojima said this game is about revenge, it’s about Big Boss’s descent into madness, and he also said the story will be pretty straightforward this time around. Not sure why people always expect a character switch, while he only did it with MGS2. With all the other games, it wasn’t the case. When Peace Walker and Rising were first announced, people speculated that Big Boss was Otacon or Johnny, and that Raiden was Sunny, so take these theories with a grain of salt.

          • Mr.Pony

            Exactly, “Kojima said this game is about revenge, it’s about Big Boss’s descent
            into madness, and he also said the story will be pretty straightforward
            this time around.”

            And in timeline terms Gray Fox is what? Still a rookie probably with “rookie eyes”, there is no way Kojima can insert him in BB plot and go like “Hey you know the character you have been playing? He is actually this other guy that serves as a secondary character in MGS1” It just doesn’t make sense, even for guy like Kojima, who creates a character that his possessed by another trough an arm transplant

          • Shalashaska Has Landed

            I find it ironic that so many people hated the MGS2 switch, because they wanted to play as Solid Snake at all cost.
            Fast-forward to now, with Big Boss having a new VA, some of those people that hated MGS2 for the character switch, are now begging for it in MGSV lmao. And at the same time, those who are strongly anticipating and prepping themselves for that asinine theory to happen, would claim it to be “surprising, shocking, & genius”, if it came true.

      • Shalashaska

        I want to play as Big boss.. I want to witness his end.. it will really disappointing otherwise :/ want to play as naked snake.. :’/

    • Mr.Pony

      I would like to see the actual Gray Fox appear in TPP but still, BB is much more interesting, especially now when we get to see him turn into the villain. Having that kind of twist would be infuriating i admit. I think that the fans seem to care more and give more importance to the character of Gray Fox than Kojima himself does. I really hope he doesn’t pulll that stunt on us.

      if we take in account PO, Gray Fox is supposed to be like 40 by the time that TPP starts, so that means that he is like 60 in MGS1? Wait….what?!

      • Shalashaska

        Exactly.. I want Jaeger in too but as a support buddy.. like NULL from PO.. that would be cool and acceptable. And being a fan of Big Boss, I want to play and feel the story of Big Boss, Not Gray fox.. I want to play as Big Boss.. I want to experience HIS madness.. not gray fox’s .. I want to see how Big B turns into that crazy villian.. not Gray fox.. Gray fox was cool because of MGS 1… his character and everything is cool but not worth a whole damn twist like that.. I swear to you man, if he pulls some shit like that, i will break the disc, toss it out and forget Kojima ever existed.

        umm Are you sure ? I suck at the whole timeline thing.. thats why i asked.. if he is in TPP (and if he is Vsnake) then.. how come he isnt as old as Big B in MGS 1 ? o.O Could be that because he went cyborg, his face looks young..? That’s not really possible is it ? even by mgs terms .. making a old guy look young isnt possible.. he should look as old and weathered up as Ocelot or Big Boss.. but he looks like he is 20!

        • Mr.Pony

          Always liked Gray Fox because of his backstory in MGS1, (NULL was crap) especially the whole Naomi’s Older Brother-Sorry-I-Killed-Your-Parents thing. It really helped to construct the character full with remorse and tired of being a plaything for those in power, BUT THAT IS IT. He was one of the best supporting characters in videogames but nothing more, and to tell the truth he was only relevant for MGS1. The previous games were nothing special (maybe because of the technology at the time too) in terms of Gray Fox role.

          in MGS1 I would say that Gray Fox was about 30 or 35 but in PO they say he was born in the 50s (according with wiki). In order to be 30 or 35 he had to have been born around the same time as the “Les enfant terribles”, I’m guessing that it was a mistake on behalf of PO.

    • Ravenous

      Running alittle late to the party with this, but I couldn’t resist: Fox damn well better be in TPP, how else is he going to become Big Boss’ most trusted leutenant(spelling?)?

      Big Boss rescued him from a POW camp in Vietnam IIRC, met him again as Null during Portable Ops, which is also the first time we hear of how “they” experimented on him to try to make him the ultimate soldier. During the mid 80’s Fox kills Naomi’s parents and adopts Naomi as a sister because he couldn’t bring himself to kill her too. Big Boss then brings them to the U.S from Mozambique, and Fox goes back to the war along with BB.

      In MGS1 we learn of the experiments the Patriots put Fox through after recovering his body as part of the cleanup after MG2, we learn that Dr Clark (Paramedic) was trying to perfect gene-therapy and other questionable ways of artificially increasing a persons potential as a soldier, and that Naomi helped Fox escape from the lab they kept him in. We also learn of how Fox served as a mentor and teacher for Solid Snake, how they became friends and later had to fight eachother when Fox joined Big Boss’ uprising.

      At some point in this story we deserve to see how and why Fox winds up being BB’s most trusted Lt. instead of Miller or Ocelot……IMHO ofcourse 🙂

      This could be my last hope of getting a CE.

      • XIFF-5

        actually they told me the same thing, it is over 1 kg , but I have an address in the UK to ship to , then Aramex (like Fedex and DHL etc…) will ship it to me.
        You have to contact them via live chat and tell them.

        • Darby Crash

          You’re lucky.
          Now i’m looking on gamestop.de hoping they ship it outside Germany.

  • Damn it Konami, You better restock PS4 Collector’s edition before we go mid-evil on that tail.
    it’s freaking stupid that just on the day it got available at Gamestop it got out of stock, damn Amazon still scratching their heads on it as well.

  • Fox

    Im so pissed off! I had TPP already preordered months ago in gamestop and when I went there to preorder the CE the guy said it was only possible to preorder online!!!! F***! Thats bullsh*t.

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      Hey at least you can pre-order a CE. Where I live retailers don’t know if they’re going to have the CE yet.

      • Pablo Andres Martinez Garcia

        no store in Mexico has the CE yet 🙁

  • turkishgamer35

    this is gonna be the biggest mgs game for sure (both sales and gameplay wise)

    • Yeah, pretty good chance!

  • Adrian

    All I wish for is a CE for the PS3…. I don’t care how much, I don’t care how toned down the graphics will be. I’d get it the moment our retailer puts it up for pre-order.

    • Well if price isn’t an issue, can’t you just get a PS4? 😛

      • Invader_skoodge

        It’s not that easy. I put a lot of thought into the PS4 thing, but I love my PS3. I’m not ready to upgrade just yet. I also have a gaming PC so there’s not much incentive to get a PS4 apart from exclusives. So it’d be nice if they throw PS3 owners a bone and give us some sort of CE.
        I’m getting it for PS3 and later for PC by the way, so graphics is not an issue or a reason to upgrade.

        • Edward Wokhands

          Couldn’t you get the PC version on Steam and the PS4 CE? It isn’t THAT much more money, ($60 for Steam version?) and you’ll be able to play it and have the cute lil robot arm. ^_^

          • Invader_skoodge

            Never let a Metal Gear Game go to waste. Then we’re no better than the people buying multiple CE copies just to re-sell them. I wouldn’t take away a PS4 copy of MGS5 away from somebody with a PS4.

      Yeah but they won’t ship outside UK :(.

      • Jack Raiden

        Are you sure? Try gamestop.de I think they ship EU wide, maybe even worldwide

        • Ninja_Se7eN

          Yes, I’m 100% sure. I talked to them via live chat and via e-mail. They told me (and other users here) that because that item weights over 1kg they won’t ship outside the UK.

          Won’t the game be in German then? I need it to be in English.

          • The box will be in German.

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Shouldn’t they had to tell me about this before completing the transaction?
            I mean, i put an Italian address on the shipping information, at least i hope they contact me if they can’t deliver it.

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Like I said, I’m 100% sure.
            Talk to them, either send them an e-mail or log in to live chat.

          • Darby Crash

            Yeah, they contacted me. 🙁
            Let’s try on gamestop.de.

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Good luck man ;).

            I really don’t want a box in german :P.

          • Darby Crash

            Neither them can deliver it in Italy.
            I can only wait and see if amazon re-stocks or if GS italy wakes up and starts to sell it.
            You? Did you managed to get one?

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Nope, no luck here either.
            I signed up to get notified when the CE arrives on amazon.fr and amazon.it.
            Meanwhile I’ll keep on waiting for my local retailers to actually know if they’re going to have the CE or not *sigh*.

          • Jack Raiden

            The Box will be in German, But the game itself will be in English

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            I guess I’ll have to wait then.

  • FoxTamerMGO

    Got The Premium Package + CE, i’ll do an unboxing for yall when it releases:’)

  • vic boss

    hey Nyxus, which version or versions of TPP will you get?? If I lived in Japan I would get the ps4 or the premium package, but because I live in NA the only one that I’ll get is the CE.

    • For now just the Collector’s Edition, but hopefully in the future the Premium Package as well.

  • VIC BOSS

      • VIC BOSS

        Servers still work but I need people to help . I have nearly 9000 poinsts .

        • Ninja_Se7eN

        • Invader_skoodge

          I can play around this time. I’m replaying MGS4 but if you get online I’ll put on Peace Walker

  • CaspburnT

    If you are in Canada try futureshop.ca. I was able to order my collectors edition today.

  • Ninja_Se7eN

    On other news, just 170 days more until V day :D.

    • Big_Boss88

      Yeay XD

  • KiloTwoOne

    My Gamestop here in Michigan was still taking orders for the CE at 8pm. Not a fan of how they are doing the ordering process on this.

  • No pre-orders for Brazil yet :c I’m starting to think I’ll never get that collector’s edition

    • Silverius

      Whats the name of your gaming retailer such as gamestop over there? like in latin america we have Gamers shop here in México.

      • Pablo Andres Martinez Garcia

        Silverius i’m from mexico too, have you secured your CE package? because I haven’t seen any store selling it 🙁

        • Silverius

          Asi es, desgraciadamente no en mexico, parece que ninguna tienda maneja otra edicion que no se Day One Edition. Aparte en GameStop, ya que vivo cerca de la frontera con USA.

          • Pablo Andres Martinez Garcia

            yo tambien vivo cerca de la frontera, pero no tengo oportunidad de ir a USA (no tengo VISA), solo espero que como MGS es menos famoso en Mexico, casi nadie se preocupe en comprarlo xD

  • Tibor

    yeah, great that as sa pc player I don’t have to worry about sold out CE and SE(that was irony). on the other hand if CE and SE would be for pc I would spend a ton of money on shipment 😀

  • Big Boss

    I pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition as the first person at our GameStop here in Switzerland and even though I still had more time to pre-order it, I’m just over the moon to be able to get this wonderful Collector’s Edition of this game I have been waiting for for over two and a half years now. The people who just want to get a profit out of these are just a bunch of bastards and don’t deserve any of it, because it’s not fair towards the fans and people who actually want to collect it. This goes for every game, though, but with games like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which have been in development for such a long time and have such a dedicated fanbase it’s just incredibly hurtful that these people would just leech off of us.

    • Big_Boss88

      Amen brother, you speak the truth.

    • GreyFox

      From were exactly are you in switzerland

      • Big Boss

        Near Zurich. Why do you ask?

        • GreyFox

          Im coming from bern 😉

          • Big Boss

            Ooooh, nice 😀 How’re things in Berne?

          • GreyFox

            Same shit like zürich 😉

  • MAG V Supreme

    Mgs has hardcore fans. Kojima makes fun gameplay that anyone can enjoy, replayablity, options on stealth non lethal or all guns blazing fun than feeds brains like mines with political views, adding current events with historical ones. Themes so deep they have multiple means. Always life inspiring words. With that said. 100 for a collectors edition is a steal. Game of the year shouldnt be a question.

  • The Reaver

    Twice I’ve had the chance to buy the CE and twice I’ve let it slip through my fingers. I didn’t immediately get one because I just didn’t expect them to sell out this quickly, but now I’m determined to get one as soon as I can. I hope Amazon or Gamestop starts selling more soon so I can snatch up mine like a stealthy snake.

  • Marxal

    Does anyone think that if I bought the xbox version I could use the DLC codes on the PS4 version? Since it’s possible that MGO will take the codes directly instead of the console stores? Theres an auction for the xbox one real cheap and I’m tempted to grab it just incase I cant get the PS4 version D:

    • MAG V Supreme

      I am 99% sure that it doesnt allow cross platform dlc codes. Unless kojima is created some new cross-platform system. Which would be really cool. Until a new console starts to take over ps and xbox wont merge.

    • Guest

      This should explain it

    • John Guerra

      Let me guess, you want to get the Collector’s Edition contents but can’t find a PS4 edition anywhere other than eBay,so are contemplating getting the Xbox One version since it is(was a time of your comment) the only CE version available and plan on getting the Day one Edition for PS4 and merging the packages together and selling the Xbox disc and keeping everything else.
      But now after re-reading your comment, I am lead to believe that I am so stupid for not reading your comment fully and carefully to see that you already answered my speculation. Derp. 😀

  • hunner

    Am i the only one who thinks that ground zeroes will affect the sales for this game a little?

    • MAG V Supreme

      I mean yes people who have no logic will clearly be suspicious about getting the game But with a little research the simpletons should realize they cant miss out on possibly the greatest game ever made. If anyone played peacewalker will know it was a long game. Phantom pain has more missions and bigger maps. That alone should be enough. Add all the features and options. Gz is a tiny taste of what tpp will offer.

      • hunner

        lol that was my point

      • John Guerra

        Not to mention PW was a PSP game too!

  • Bramdeman

    Standing….

    • Venom_Sina

          Like the prophets once said…
          Man,this song is Legend…(wait for it)…Dary!!!

  • Schmojima

    Kojima just posted this…I can almost feel the game, the controller in my hand, exploring motherbase and Afghanistan and all the stuff we can do

    …Oh man, this will be good!!

    • Edward Wokhands

      Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit!

  • umbralex
    • Thanks, tweeted! Hopefully they will go to fans instead of scalpers.

      • umbralex

        I Hope so , is painfull to see collector’s edition on eBay at double price.

        • Marxal

          I got it I got it I got it igigotgitogtot. You are a godsend friend. I got it, I’m so happy, this is the first time I’ve felt like a 6 year old in 15 years!!!!

          • John Guerra

            In my hastefuleness, I think I got 2 of them!

  • John Guerra

    Anyone else feel like these 6 months are going to feel longer than the 3-4 years we have already spent waiting for it?

  • Lyndan

    I’ve just given up on ever having anything popular like this nowadays. Cool Amiibos, Majora’s Mask 3DS, this. I have to sit here and convince myself “I don’t NEED it… I don’t NEED it…” ;_;

  • Firecracker22

    Man…the PS4 version is sold out everywhere I look. I think I’m going to wind up getting kneecapped on the price if I go for ebay or something, man. Fucking sucks.

  • Anon

    Had to buy the damned xbone version just for this. Huge mgs fan but will be selling the game instantly so I can play it how its suppose to be played on ps
    Sad I’m losing all the bad ass dlc exclusive :'(

  • Jessica Nolasco

    Aren’t people who are selling them on ebay wasting money.

  • Eric Blondebeard

    It sucks so much. I was too late to preoder (was in University classes) and since then I found no chance of preorder the collectors edition. Kojima is my hero and I goddamnit want the potentially last collectors edition of Kojima MGS game 🙁 Hell I even built a little podium for the arm as soon as it was announced. I hope they will restock on the ps4 CE 🙁 I want to obtain a piece of gaming history without having to pay people who don’t give a damn about it if its for profit.

  • SEB

    Fuck !!! GAME UK is sold out of pre orders. 🙁

  • projectd

    any idea when it will be available for digital pre order? on ps4?
