Kojima shares pictures of the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Premium Package box

Yesterday we got our first look at the Japanese Special Edition for the game, and today Hideo Kojima shared two photos of the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Premium Package, that contains the full scale bionic arm.

MGSV TPP premium package (for Japan) sample that contains 1/1 sized bionic arm has arrived.

Of course many fans, including those outside of Japan would like to own such a neat collector’s item (the US and PAL version both come with a half scale arm replica), but according to producer Ken-ichiro Imaizumi there’s a big reason it won’t be released in the west.

However, if we want to see the arm released separately he advices turning to Sentinel, the company making the item.

    I’m wondering what would be the “big reason” for no releasing it in the west…

    • flying_fox

      Because it would be too pricey? It’s bound to be a commercial decision. Anyway, they studied the Western market enough to make the decision that we would only get half-size.

    • FMercenary

      ?….. !

  • Javier

    The big reason is wait some time and then sell you the big version.

  • Lewis

    Big reason? Secret? Bullshit. Shipping full scale arms is just too expensive. Sentinel is in Japan, so Japan gets full scale. Why provide quality shipping, when you can just reduce the thing! “What? Mobile games? Has nothing to do with this.”

    • Bramdeman

      I agree. The reason is obvious. GAME UK wasn’t even able to send the CE to the Netherlands.

      • Lewis

        Man, sad to hear this. Still waiting for a CE to appear in my country’s store. Hope dies the last.

        • Bramdeman

          I was able to order it at Yourgamezone later on. Let’s hope for the best man!

          • Lewis

            So happy for you, friend. Think every MGS fan should get a chance to get one. Still waiting for a CE on this end.

  • Yup, that’s the one!
    That’s the one I’m getting.
    1:1 Scale Bionic Arm.

    Here’s the size differences between the 1/2 scale and the 1:1 scale

    • Reaper

      I have no doubt that there’s some extreme fan out there that’s willing to cut off his/her arm just to use the 1:1 replica…sad…but probably true lol

      • I already did, but forgot to pre-order it at time. :_(

      • ROTFL!

      • J_muse72

        If it actually attached to my central nervous system,I would cut off my arm for this in a heart beat.

      • glitchbomb

        I actually got this one because I have one hand. Hah.

  • J.Wayne

    Hey everyone,

    I’ve been following MGI for a few months now and finally decided to join/comment. The hype for this Masterpiece is unreal and I don’t want to miss the train! See you around

      • thetrooper1989

        Nyxus, am I banned from your site? Why does my profile pic no longer show up?

        • Ricardo Oe

          Yeaahh , why ??? happens to me too..
          That way seems a communist site..

    • No Place For Hayter

      Welcome πŸ™‚ All aboard the hype train! this is as close as you will get to heaven, welcome to our outer heaven πŸ™‚

    • J_muse72

      So you weren’t Fultoned by Nyxus? You joined MGI of you own free will?

    • Another recruit. Welcome to hell.. I mean welcome to Mother Base

        this is our heaven & our hell. this is… OUTER HEAVEN

    • decoyF0XX

      Come September first lets all drop our PSN, XBLive and Steam (what’s it called?)s on here. Maybe form an MGI platoon on MGO if possible!

      • Lewis

        Actually a good idea. If MGO will have some form of guildes with lots of members to play with, it is definitly worth making an MGI army!

      • J_muse72

        We should, I can be the support sniper, or infiltrations expert. I just hope there are co-op missions too!

      • glitchbomb

        Agreed.

  • FoxTamerMGO

    Ordered it, just wondering if it comes with a documentary disc talking about the making of the game?

    • J_muse72

      It does but I think it’s only in Japanese.

    • glitchbomb

      Me too!

  • Daburcor

    Personally, I’m cool with the 1/2 scale. It’s gonna look pretty rad on my desk!

    • Gatsu

      Same here :).

  • J_muse72

    I already preorded mine,it’s really expensive though!! I wonder what the big secret us though.

    • glitchbomb

      Tbh I am a little worried. Never dropped that kind of cash on something I won’t be receiving for MONTHS AND MONTHS.
      Not that I don’t have faith in the company I purchased it from. Just anxiety I guess. :/

      • Kol Leqejza

        seperate the anxiety – you know it’s mine!

  • invader_skoodge

    Guys, I think I know the first thing I’m going to develop at Mother Base. I’ll get all my R&D unit working on it ASAP. “A weapon to surpass Metal Gear.”

    • WrongDirectionZ

      Cant tell you guys how much i loved that frickn banana from PW. but now when i think about it…. itΒ΄s just a…. Banana. PRICELESS

  • PrinceHeir

    GODLY!! I wish i had the money to buy that edition :O

    Also the new Deus Ex Mankind Divided E3 Gameplay is here!

    • PrinceHeir

      Some improvements:

      Hugely improve engine and graphics.

      Takedowns no longer stop time and it’s much more faster and more fluid.

      Can now hack remotely without going to the actual device. Shield covers Adam’s body and looks very Ghost in the Shell like feature :O

      Hacking terminals have more deadly traps, harder to hack and easy to be detected, menus are very intuitive and weapons can easily be switch from the get go.

      Amazing new weapons and your energy battery has been replaced by a bar which is much more longer and can now perform more skills without worrying it empties faster compared to HR.

      Adam moves faster, goes to cover faster, Icarus landing is much more faster and deadlier etc.

      Having completed Deus Ex HR for 4 times now(I rarely do replay games nowadays). I can safely say they improved ALOT. Just need full third person view and it would be a perfect stealth game alongside MGSV.

      DAAAMN!! Shame new Hitman is supposedly episodic content(will wait on full version), but at least we still have tons of stealth games after MGSV The Phantom Pain πŸ˜€

      Ubisoft should hurry up and announce the current gen Splinter Cell game.

    • glitchbomb

      That’s the edition I got…..but I really like the one with the steel book and figure….arrrg.

    • Gatsu

      Oh my god I love this demo and the improvements/skills <3, bring me more scifi and Adam Jensen!

  • Diogo

    Totaly off topic but, who’s going to play TPP on the PS3? You know, not everyone can afford a PS4 (he’s very expensive outside of the U.S) so some of us doesn’t really have a choice. What are your expectations for the game on this plataform.

    • Shalashaska

      Im going to be playing it on the X360 and my expectations are pretty good. I mean.. look at GZ .. the game was amazing. A slight pop in issues may occur but Im okay with it, things like that dont effect my experience much as long as the gameplay is good. AND FOR THIS GAME.. IM SURE the gameplay is very good.
      But then again, The Fox engine must be more refined by now and the pop in issues may not even be noticeable. Even if they are, it isnt gonig to take away from the experience.

      • Diogo

        My biggest problem with GZ was that the resolution wasn’t really 720p. People say the game is internally upscaled (i don’t really know what that means). Basically, the game runs at 992×720 rather than 1280×720. If they fix this, and make the game run at proper/native 720p, then i will be the happiest person on my country. What gives me hope is this trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Kav2t0spyE They said this was running real time in a machine equivalent to a PS3, and it looks gorgeous!

        • MichaelPayneV

          Well, this was clearly BS, as this looks really PC like, not PS3!

          • MrVux007

            We will see after the game releases πŸ™‚

          • Diogo

            The blood texture and jagged graphics are totally NOT PC. I mean, it is pc, but one equivalent to PS3 hardware. They could be lying, but i trust Kojima.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Facepalm: In Development PC version.

          • Diogo

            Meh. I still believe what they said.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Then you are really easy to fool.

          • Diogo

            Nah, not really. I just trust the work of someone with decades of experience πŸ™‚
            If it was any other person behind the production of this game, then i would be scratching my head. Plus the graphics in the trailer really aren’t that much. I mean, really.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well the 3D Models, Yes, they looks like PS3, X360, but the Lighting and Post Processing features like Draw Distance look like PS4/X1, so what you saw was a hybrid, is how a Wii U Version of TPP would look like!

          • Diogo

            I can’t disagree with you on that. The lighting effects do look gorgeous. The draw distance though…I mean, this is a problem even for new generation consoles. Obviously, the best place to play the game (in terms of graphics) is a PC. Still, i hope they do a good job with last gen ports. I know it’s not going to look great but, i hope it’s at least playable. Well, if that was not possible, them they wouldn’t even release the game on last gen, right?

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yep.

    • FMercenary

      I will. My expectations are that I hope that it doesn’t stall or freeze during gameplay but I’m sure everything will go fine given that the game’s installation takes care of something like that.

    • invader_skoodge

      I’ll be on PS3 then on PC later on. I expect the same as GZ. A very well optimized game running at 720p/30p I trust KojiPro and the FOX Engine so I think all the features will make it to all consoles.

    • No Place For Hayter

      This is the FOX engine and Kojima, so it won’t effect your gameplay πŸ™‚ the only thing should just be lower frame rate and lower graphics (but everyone still is impressed with the graphics to the point where a lot of elitists did not believe it would come out for that generation despite the games trailer stating so, lol)

      So my expectations are, same game, running the same, but at a lower frame rate and graphics. But the 60fps and insane graphics is still something that is coming around to gaming so most people would not even notice NOT having the 60fps and insane graphics, as the norm of the industry is still within the range of the PS3.

    • thetrooper1989

      I share @noplaceforhayter:disqus sentiment. I first played Ground Zeroes on PS3 before making the switch to the PS4. When I first played it on last gen console, my first reaction was “Holy crap, is this really running on last gen console?” The game still looks great on the PS3 and you’ll still be able to enjoy all that Kojima has to offer.

      • glitchbomb

        Same here.

    • Javier

      The gz ps3 version was the worst of the 5 versions. Even the 360 has 30fps all the time, the ps3 has moments with 20. That’s why I decided to buy a ps4. The kojima mission with less than 30 fps trying to not kill no one was very hard.
      Anyway off course you will enjoy tpp. The soldiers desappearing happens even in pc.

    • Tong Ninja

      The only problem for the PS3 version was the pop ins. Soldiers and grass would pop in when you use the binoculars. Graphics is fine though. Kojima has more time to fix up these issues for MGSV: TPP for PS3. So HOPEFULLY there will be minimal or no pop ins for the last generation consoles. πŸ™‚

    • Kol Leqejza

      i like to have my own mp3 playlists & i hate to play in 60 fps. so the ps3 will be my platform of choice πŸ™‚

      • Boldizar

        When is custom music coming to PS4? I cannot believe it doesn’t have that STILL

        • Gatsu

          Can play mp3 using some USB, but yeah still can’t just drop in some mp3s like on PS3 I think.
          Not sure will they ever change it, also no backwards compatibility either :/.

        • Kol Leqejza

          beats me. at least kojima put a lot of effort making such great audiotapes.

  • Hey guys, i have a little request here, i hope someone can help me.

    I’m talking in another forum, and we are looking for the interview where Kojima said that Skullface was a character that we already know about. But i don’t remember which interview or twitter, or whatever it was. Can you help me with this, dudes? Or to confirm that is true or not? That remember was blasted from my mind and i don’t remember anything. πŸ™

    Thanks and have a nice day πŸ™‚

    • FoxTamerMGO

      No, he actually says that he’s totally a new character.

    • Tong Ninja

      I believe he is a new character. Don’t think Kojima mentioned that Skull Face is someone we know.

    • WrongDirectionZ

      only thing i can remember is that he said in an interview that he brought a charackter back to life that he had killed before. Guess he doesnΒ΄t mean realy “killed” but just removed from the lore.

    • Gatsu

      I slighty remember Kojima saying in some interview that line. “He is someone we know”, but I don’t remember who he was talking about. Tried to search for the interview but couldn’t find :(.

  • MrVux007

    Holy shit,Yong is so happy https://youtu.be/_m4jTnHKDuM

    • Gatsu

      I have never liked Uncharteds so much for some reason although I would love to enjoy them more. I don’t know is it the waves of enemies that keep coming or something else. I guess not many games to me can give such hype like TPP…

      I have played every UC at least once, but for me MGS games are much more enjoyable. Of course Uncharted 4 looks insane, but it’s only for PS4 and is more linear. MGSV is for older consoles too and has a vast open world mostly and still looks amazing.

      The gameplay of UCs for me isn’t so much fun, it’s just mostly shooting nonstop. Same with every game. Anyway I will still play UC4 but I think most are hyping these games because of the graphics. To me games are more than that. Ok I guess fans can say they have good story and characters too, but they don’t make me feel so much like MGS games story.
      P.S. UC fans here not trying to sound like some a-hole :P, just saying my opinion.

      • Kol Leqejza

        uncharted 1 was the pinaccle. than the quality just dropped continously… UC 3 is just an average game in my opinion.

        • MrVux007

          It sure did make a lot of people happy for an *average game*

          • Kol Leqejza

            i’ll stick to my rating: 5/10. close quarters combat was fun, graphics were great but the story was bull & the villain. the levels were more tedious this time around.

          • MrVux007

            just like MGS,Uncharted is the series that you either very much like or dont have any interest at all…. which explains your score of 5/10…

          • Boldizar

            Dude, the story in Uncharted 3 was complete trash. One of the great things about the series was the sci-fi fantasy twists during the end games. 3 did everything in its power to discredit this and make everyone “real”, including stripping Drake of his ancestry. Plain Bullshit. I cannot stand when people think fiction has to be real.

          • Kol Leqejza

            i hear you!

        • Solid Snakes Revenge

          I agree uncharted 3 was pretty meh but I like 2 better than 1.

      • It’s just a matter of taste in the end. But the appeal of Uncharted is going on an adventure with these characters, exploring exotic locales and it has a lot of humor. Also, just like MGS, the games are always very polished and made with attention to detail. The gameplay isn’t very complex, but that is also the charm, that it’s so accessible and easy to pick up. It’s just… a very fun game to play. πŸ˜‰ But again, it’s a matter of taste, like everything.

        • Gatsu

          I know, I want to like them and love them more but I don’t know what it is :(… But as I said, I will still play UC4 πŸ™‚ maybe it will change my feelings.

          I used to play Tomb Raiders a lot when I was younger, so dunno what changed :C. I mean they’re both about exploring treasures etc.

          • Here’s hoping you will enjoy UC4 as much as other people!

      • MrVux007

        To me Uncharted series and MGS are top notch….no amount of biased comments will change that …i think every rational gamer could agree with that πŸ™‚ ..but ofc different people,different opinions…both series are on par quality wise

    Mayhaps this would come with an eyepatch, that would be teh cookies. But no loss, I wouldn’t get much use out of it besides decoration, as my eyesight is already fucked at best. I’m happy with a non-scalpered collector’s edition anyhoo. Also a D-Horse model that shits. Kind of like a Pez dispenser, except the exact opposite in every conceivable way.

    I need sleep… >_>
