Close Up: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Collector’s Edition

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will officially release on September 1st, 2015. There are several versions available, such as the Day One Edition, the regular edition and the Collector’s Edition. In Japan there’s also a Premium Package that includes a full scale bionic arm replica. In the other regions, the arm included in the Collector’s Edition is only half size.

MGSV-TPP-CE-Diamond-Dogs

The Collector’s Edition is only available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, though here in the Benelux it seems like the Xbox One version got cancelled altogether, in the last minute. Either way, in this article we’ll look at the PlayStation 4 PAL (Dutch) version of the Collector’s Edition, which is slightly different from the North American version in some regards.

MGSV-TPP-CE-Box

First of all, let’s take a look at the box itself. It’s a large rectangular container with a fake leather surface (which is actually just a print). One thing that’s a bit annoying is that when you remove the ‘outer peel’ (as Skull Face would put it) it leaves some mark on the surface of the box because it’s glued to it.

MGSV-TPP-CE-Box-2

On the front it has been decorated with a Diamond Dogs logo. This emblem is made out of metal and has a magnetic surface on the back, so you can stick it on your fridge afterwards.

The box folds open in a ‘v’-shape (fitting for this title), after which the contents can be removed from the front.

The main extra with this edition is the half scale bionic arm replica that represent Big Boss’ arm in the game.

MGSV-TPP-CE-Arm-in-packaging

It’s actually quite light in terms of weight. Its fingers can be moved so you can make all kinds of gestures, and it can even hold objects. It looks quite good and authentic to the one in the game, with a nice attention to detail.

There’s also a steelbook with a nice artwork showing Snake and Miller on the front (from Ground Zeroes), and Snake and Ocelot on the back. This case contains a Blu-Ray with bonus material (interviews, trailers and a ‘Phantom Episode’).

On the inside is also an artwork showing an x-ray of Snake.

Further included in this case is a map of Afghanistan on one side, and Africa on the other (the two main areas in the game).

MGSV-TPP-Map-Kabul MGSV-TPP-Map-AfricaMGSV-TPP-map-close

The set obviously includes the game itself, which looks identical to the regular edition, but with an ugly yellow text box on the front and the back that says it’s not available separately.

MGSV-TPP-case MGSV-TPP-case-back

Lastly, there is some downloadable content: one code for the ‘Day One additional content’ and one for ‘Metal Gear Online additional content’: an emblem, four outfits for Snake, three cardboard boxes, weapons and armor, four MGO items and an XP boost.

MGSV-TPP-CE-DLC-codes

All in all, a nice collector’s edition, with the main attraction of course being the arm. A lot of people may be disappointed the arm is only half the size of the one included in the Japanese Premium Package, but it does help keep the price down by more than 50%. It’s an original item to include in a CE, and fun to play around with due to its articulation. The items included are all well made and overall the price feels fair for this package.

  • JJBYACH

    So pretty… I wish I could of afforded one.

  • Cosima Caminades

    Where did you order this one? Bol.com? I ordered mine from 12game and I still haven’t heard anything.

    • Yes, Bol. And Yourgamezone as well.

      • Cosima Caminades

        I remember hesitating between Yourgamezone and 12game. I hope I didn’t make a mistake. πŸ™ Fingers crossed mine gets delivered on September 1.

  • Jack

    I don’t need it

  • Michael Kilfeather

    I originally had this pre-ordered but ended up cancelling it today and went with the day one edition instead. Over here in Ireland, it cost 140 euro in Gamestop, even though it costs 100 in most other countries. Just felt it was a bit too much to be paying, considering the small amount of content included.

    • Yeah that’s a lot more than it’s supposed to cost.

      • Michael Kilfeather

        Yup, and it’s annoying as hell, because where I live, Gamestop can charge whatever they like, since there’s literally no other Game stores here in Ireland, so there’s no competition. Think I’ll get that Phantom Pain Special Edition strategy guide with the money I saved, since that has an artbook included πŸ™‚

        • Can’t you order online? Via Amazon or something?

          • Michael Kilfeather

            For the collector’s edition? Unfortunately, it isn’t available on amazon for Ireland and UK. For Ireland, it was Gamestop exclusive. For the strategy guide, I’ll be getting that on Amazon probably.

          • Gamestop exclusive… that’s the problem right there.

    • ObsessedGeorge

      119€ is the cheapest l found it here in Greece.

      • Michael Kilfeather

        119 isn’t so bad. Over here in Ireland, we get ripped off terribly, when it comes to collector’s editions :L

        • ObsessedGeorge

          Sorry to hear that comrade. See you Online. πŸ™‚

    • Migetsub

      man i know the pain it cost me 259 AUD for my CE and 569 AUD for the console + another 55 AUD for the collectors edition hint book

  • Andy Price

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but some of us PS4 owners aren’t gonna get the DLC on release day….

    http://m.uk.ign.com/articles/2015/08/29/metal-gear-solid-5-the-phantom-pain-ps4-collectors-edition-missing-dlc

    • Lewis

      That’s bullshit. In this article we see DLC papers, and they try to say, that this is not a mistake, but deliberate decision? Like BB would say: “What a load of bullshit”. So they prefer instead of printing a limited number of papers to be flooded with rage and disappointment on the release date? This is so childishly stupid that I even nervously laugh. MGSV has the worst pre-launch waiting time of any game I remember waiting. And with MGO coming out in October I think it is not the last we’ve seen of Konami fuck-ups.

      • Andy Price

        I know. Disgraceful.

        I THINK the guy whose pictures are shown may be missing some codes also.

        He has ‘day one’ content and ‘online content’ , but i expected there to be a seperate code set to the Collector’s Edition codes…..

        But i could be wrong.

        • Lewis

          Fuckers. They really expect us to believe, that this shit is on purpose. PS – the main platform for MGS for >15 years, and it gets ripped off, so instead of playing the game I have to wait for the support to answer me. Getting codes from the retailer? Are they so fucking retarded? Of course it would be safer to give code to retailers, cause never ever had a guy working at a shop steal anything. And if this guy is afraid to steal a 100$ CE, good guy Konami gives him separate codes, so he can say it is just lost, sorry. I just don’t understand, why be so retarded and then make even MORE retarded excuses.

  • Fritillary

    Uugh!!

  • Andy Price

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but some of us PS4 owners aren’t gonna get the DLC on release day….

    http://m.uk.ign.com/articles/2

  • Almost started drooling….

  • Andy Price

    My apologies, i accidentally included the wrong link to the ‘missing PS4 Collector’s DLC’ story. This is the correct link:

    http://m.uk.ign.com/articles/2015/08/29/metal-gear-solid-5-the-phantom-pain-ps4-collectors-edition-missing-dlc?utm_source=IGN%20hub%20page&utm_medium=IGN%20(front%20page)&utm_content=2&utm_campaign=Blogroll

    I recommend contacting Konami support in advance. It seems terrible, and they’ll be swamped even worse on Tuesday. πŸ™

    Good luck, everyone.

    • ddmaster

      I really don’t see what the big deal is getting dlc download code vouchers via receipt or email. Its a practice I’ve seen on other titles before like when I preordered Final Fantasy XIII-2 from Gamestop. Sure it may not come on specially printed mgsv logo paper w/in the box itself but that shouldn’t matter as long as you get it, right?

      • Andy Price

        Oh, i have no issue with that.

        The concern I have is that the listed stores who will be automatically e-mailing out DLC are not who i bought from.
        They’re not even in my country.

        To get my codes, it appears I have to fill out a request ticket on Konami’s european Tech Support page and wait for them to get to me as and when they can…..which may take a long time.
        It’s very frustrating.

        • ddmaster

          I hear ya. Hope I don’t have that problem. 0_0′

  • Gatsu

    Oh god, Nyxus…YOU LUCKY SON OF A….BIG BOSS!!!! O____O

    You have it ;O >;O !!!? Hmm well you have deserved it boss ;)…congratz :D.
    Mine maybe arrive on Monday.

    • solidsnack

      i got an email from the shipping company telling me if they’d recieved the game it’d be here today! talk about a tease!

  • Batzi

    Can’t wait to unbox mine!

    • ddmaster

      Same here brother.

  • kuaikukia

    It would be more awesome if that bionic arm also could do rocketo punch πŸ™‚

    • It does, you just have to scream and throw it yourself

      • Mauricio Acosta

        Cheap. That’s not what I paid for!

      • kuaikukia

        lol

  • RecasasX

    Not a drop of Shinkawa art to be found.

    • MistaUcket HD

      Sad, but true): his art seems to be on the ps4 box

  • When I get my CE I’m going to open it to this song https://youtu.be/cZlYSP3_NMc

    • Gatsu

      GOOOODDAMN, I think Im gonna cry when get my CE and when it come available to Steam ;O ;O….
      For me it’s this song!

      And when I download my Steam TPP, it’s this.

      • Kingtos
  • The Reaver

    Still waiting on mine to ship…

  • Lewis

    I don’t even hope to get mine on the day of release, so I will go and buy Day One edition also. And when my CE comes, I’ll give DOE to my brother.

  • RecasasX

    Anybody else order from Best Buy? Has your CE shipped yet? I got free shipping, but I’m pretty sure it was release day shipping(there’s no way to check).

    • ddmaster

      I got release day shipping too but from Amazon. Check your spam, sometimes the email filter can get a little overzealous in its duty.

      • RecasasX

        I found the confirmation email, but no useful information whatsoever. Best Buy is so old fashioned sometimes. But I just checked and my order is now showing up as preparing for shipment!

  • ddmaster

    I’m hoping the American version won’t have the big yellow ‘not sold seperately’ tag. Even so this has got my blood pumping.

  • Leviathan

    Guys on a german side they mentioned that the CE have several problems cause the DD Embleme is not there … so there is a World Wide Produktion Failure

    What a day what a lobely day

    • Randomsniper

      Hux and the guitar guy are so unorthodox

  • Gatsu

    Darn Finnish stores. I wish the store I pre-ordered CE from could deliver it during this weekend, but they are gonna do it on Monday-Tuesday. T__T

    Ohhh the pain… 2 days more for Steam.

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      I’m still salty that we don’t get that early Steam unlock after all.

  • Gatsu

    Nyxus, now go! Let the legend come back to life ;)…

  • SolidSuneku

    Man your lucky!!!!
    Cant wait for mine to get here……just a few more days of waiting….

  • GreyFox

    I play the game now for 2 houres.. its just amazing. So mutch fun. The mechanics are indeed better than in GZ. For more infos just ask!

    • Gatsu

      You’re killing me bro…my health has dropped now into 10% because of this torture.
      On the behalf of some fellow MGI members who still dont have it, can we not talk about it too much yet :D..

      I want to experience it too T__T

    • Sockerfri

      Could you perhaps answer what trade offs you got from importing your GZ save data – if its nothing spoiler worthy?

      • GreyFox

        I dont figured out yet.. the code from GZ dosent work yet.

    • Amar Asghar

      Can you email me the story spoilers my email is amarasghar95@gmail.com I won’t spread

  • VenomSnake1974

    Vendor just contacted me: shipping september 1… :-/
    This pain, just wont stop…

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    I need this in my life. The last 3 years have literaly been leading up to this moment. I want to start planning for a life post mgsv, maybe settle down with a scientist in a plane that never lands unless there is a wedding, or maybe start my own PMC somwhere in Zanzibar… Maybe go to school and get a degree in boxes.

  • echolution

    Just got informed, my local trustee shop will ship my copy on September 2nd T_T
    So close…yet so far….
    Gotta….Stay….strong….

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      I believe in you
      You must believe to
      believe in the yes!

  • ddmaster

    Is there anyone here who used to or is still living in Russia? I ask because I know TPP as well as a number of other major western titles such as CODs MW2 and MW3 in which Russia is made out to be the enemy and COD players are forced to kill these Russian adversaries. I know this may be a sensitive issue for some but I just wanted to hear your point of view.

    This has been nagging me for quite sometime. When I was younger it was just a game but as I got older I began to realize there are people who may strongly disagree with this game design and choice of story.

    Btw I know you won’t have to kill majority opponents in TPP thanks to Kojima. I was primarily pointing to COD.

    • Raven_Sorrow

      In TPP the enemies are Soviets. What you are saying It’s like Germans having an issue with WW2 games where you kill Nazis -.-‘

      • ddmaster

        I understand where you’re coming from sorry I should’ve worded it better. Are you from around that area?

        • Raven_Sorrow

          ” I don’t won’t people to get the idea I’m discriminatory. I’m not.” I know that don’t worry πŸ˜‰ but you do be over thinking it because you don’t want to be discriminatory xP that is the point. there is no discrimination intended in these games. Don’t try to find meaning where there isn’t none. Sorry if i’m a bit passionate over this but is something that really moves me πŸ˜› I mean it’s like some years ago with resident evil 5: is it a racist game because you spend most of the time killing black people? or it’s just accurate representation of the people infected as the game is set in Africa? That time it really annoyed me people actually discussed this. Trying to find overly-meaning in stuff it’s what got Zero and BigBoss in this mess in the first place XD

          • ddmaster

            All I’ll say is that wish I’d never typed in the final edit. I wasn’t trying to find any kind of underlying meaning in anything and to top it all off I’ve had a really shitty day at work. Just forget about everything its not worth it anymore.

          • ddmaster

            It just feels like your analyzing me and I’m not up for it.

          • Raven_Sorrow

            Are you ok? Was just chit-chatting with you l, I didn’t meant nothing by it :/ better days will come brother, hang in there πŸ™‚

          • ddmaster

            Nah brother it’s all good I appreciate the concern. It’s just when a lot of bad things happen back to back your viewpoint just changes.

          • Raven_Sorrow

            :/ it sucks when things start to pile up. Be strong brother.

  • MattleGear!

    Gonna use that bionic arm to hold my AKG headphones πŸ˜‰ i rkn its great, even for holding ur phone for the MGSV companion app!!

    • MichaelPayneV

      Gonna use that arm to Flip Konami The Bird!

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      I’ve got plans for my bionic arm. Get ready for some very disturbing pictures next week. Not crotch gags! I promise.

  • RecasasX

    I’ve survived 6 days without watching any of the “official” Let’s Plays, but I can’t take it anymore. Does anybody who watched them have regrets? Maybe you can point me in the right direction and tell me which will be the best video to watch with the least spoilers.

    • Gatsu

      I’ve managed to stay away from them gladly. I dunno how spoiler free any of them are.

      • JJBYACH

        I only watched mission 3 (A heroes way) and some of the separate side ops vids they did and mission 4 (CRW or something) all spoiler free, and it’s also kinda funny *da dum tss* to see Rob more relaxed, cracking jokes about the games logic and stuff and trying to hide his frustration at Greg’s utter incompetence with the game.

        • Gatsu

          It maybe sound weird, but seeing someone else play the missions is spoiler to me lol ;D. I just wanna do it myself :C…

          • JJBYACH

            I kinda get what you mean, but there are so many different ways to complete each mission, I’ve seen 4 playthrough of the CRW (I think) mission and it seemed as each time someone was playing a different mission. Anyway different people have different spoiler tolerances I guess.

        • ominonarepus

          I stop watch some of the videos not because Greg is… well, not very good, it was because the night vision googles! It supposed you’re “selling” the game to the people and he keep using a thing that makes all the awesomeness of the game yellow and green

          • JJBYACH

            He gets better later on, he still sucks – I cringe whenever he tries to lure enemies to his location by getting spotted.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Greg’s videos don’t have spoilers.

      But just wait 2 days.

    • Gatsu

      I suggest trying watch some movies or tv-series from Netflix :). Good way to pass time.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Is Lord of The Flies in there?

        • Gatsu

          Haven’t seen it on the Finnish netflix. Always updating so slowly :P.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Then how about Sacco e Vanzetti?

          • Gatsu

            Nope and not Moby Dick. Trust me when I say this that Finnish netflix have much smaller collection that lets say, the US netflix.

            Dunno if its available there either.

      • RecasasX

        Back to watching MacGyver, on this unending weekend.

        • Gatsu

          I gotta see that too :O, never watched it completely!

      • That Punisher movie is sick. Some gnarly kills

        • Gatsu

          Yeah. It was way better than He-Man.

          • Ol’ Jack Burton

            If you haven’t already, go see Dark Angel (Called “I Come in Peace” in some territories) and Showdown in Little Tokyo if you wanna see Dolph at his absolute best.

            Army of One/Joshua Tree is also a very good pseudo-John Woo movie worth seeing if you’re into the late ’80s-early ’90s Hong Kong scene (Speaking of which, is anyone going to see Ringo Lam’s new movie later this year?). Dolph gets plenty of suitably shit lines of course, so you won’t be disappointed.

        • Ol’ Jack Burton

          I’ve always liked the opening scene of the ’89 Punisher movie in that it kinda-sorta apes a period slasher movie, only replacing an insane killer/demon/monster/whatever murdering good looking teenagers with a marginally-less psychotic vigilante hunting mobsters.

      • Arestras

        Been watching 24, I’m on season 5. If you guys haven’t watched it yet do it now! Pure awesomeness

        • Gatsu

          24 one of the best TV-seris ever… Damn it is so good and Kiefer rocks, he’s like Snake sometimes.

        • Ardens Anima

          I’d watch it if I had somewhere I could watch it….T-T
          I was still in the middle of season one, and I was hooked.

        • Tong Ninja

          Season 5 is my favourite season of 24! πŸ˜€

          • Arestras

            so far is my favorite too πŸ˜€

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      The first 5 missions after the prologue nothing really happens. After that avoid. Don’t not watch the opening hour on Youtube. Don’t ruin it for yourself buddy.

      • Mats

        I sadly think I know what you are talking about, buddy

    • FZJanimated

      well i saw Greg from kindagames playing the game ,but he is so bad at it ,so is not fun to watch him play it ,beside seeing robert really tired and greg non-sense comments doesnt help either.

      i would say the best way is to wait for a non-commentary gameplay or someone that at least doesnt suck playing the game.

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      Right now there is a MASSIVE SPOILER from the opening hour on Youtube. I just saw the video in the list. Stay away from it. The actual video has the spoiler on it before you even press play.

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      No regrets watching it honestly. Maybe some minor spoilers in the Kaz rescue and MB intro, but that’s it. I’d say the Hero’s Way one is pretty safe if you don’t want to see anything new at all. Only problem is they’re getting shorter and shorter.

  • korruption

    Jizz! Jizz everywhere!!!! =O

    Now then…
    I’m not sure what to think of the discs being stacked up like that. I don’t want a single scratch on either of them. I’m notorious for keeping my CDs and games (that I don’t hate) in 100% condition.

  • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

    As I just warned you guys yesterday. Avoid the last gen Xbox 360/PS3 release if you have a choice. Bad framerate!

    A bunch of trolls yesterday didn’t believe me and said last the Xbox 360 release “runs like a dream”. Digital
    Foundry just exposed it today. It doesn’t even come close.

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2015-can-last-gen-consoles-handle-mgs

    • Gatsu

      I hope this doesnt stir up some negative comments here much.

      I think many who get those versions do not have another choice :).

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        It’s perfectly fine on last gen. It’s playable. Just during the day time it’s very choppy. I’m playing all the missions at night and getting a solid 30FPS. Only thing now is that the soldiers have adapted to my tactics. You’ll find out what I mean when you play it.

        • VenomSnake1974

          So, the AI is no joke, indeed.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            No joke is right. If discovered, the soldiers swarm in pretty fast and are deadly accurate. I do find it much easier at night though. The daytime is deadly, very hard to use stealth.

          • korruption

            So if you go for tranq shots aimed at their body, it’ll no longer have an effect as well?

        • If you keep going at night later on you’re going to REALLY struggle πŸ™‚

          • korruption

            I’ll be reading/watching a LOT of walkthroughs when playing this. =(

        • Arestras

          I’ve been wondering… Do enemies have like a “Hive Mind” in TPP (meaning, once a soldier spots you all enemies know exactly where you are even before they sound the alarm)? I ask you because in GZ they seem to know your exact location the moment someone spots you..

    • Danny Patten

      I’ve video proof that the ps3 version runs smooth. Can’t link here for spoiler reasons and out of respect for those who come here to hype.
      Edit: The link is dead btw

      • MrVux007
        • Danny Patten

          Thanks. The frame rates they show seem to be right. When I take a look at the videos i have, there are no noticeable dips in FPS so far and I’ve seen some fiery boss battles.

          • MrVux007

            i just dont understand why the OP claimed yesterday that the game ran 20FPS with stutters lol when in the article clearly states that the game run in mid 20s (25-30 FPS)

            mind sending me some of those videos via e-mail?(non spoiler ones ofc)

    • MrVux007

      ehem …. you stated the following(note the picture)
      that contradicts what DigitalFoundry said,that the game runs between 25-30 FPS in good MS(during daytime and demanding sequences aswell)…
      so if anyone was trolling mate,it was you
      and as i said most of the people who played it on Xbox360 are more then pleased….
      DigitalFoundry just confirmed that the game runs just like Ground Zeroes(and better) opposed to your constant 20 FPS with stutters….

  • RocketoPunch

    Make sure those are the CE codes. Many people are missing them…

  • GreyFox

    Calm down guys kaz is safe…

    • JJBYACH

      The pain. Did you come here just to torture us? *Cries*

    • Danny Patten

      The evil is strong with this!

  • Alex Lopez Manriquez

    I can feel that arm ,even the fingers , you feel too donΒ΄t you?

  • H’m

    DAMMM THATS SEXY!!!…. i might have spend alot of dosh but considering its kojimas last game this was a must buy for me…but i prefer to look at this image, feels like im getting more πŸ™‚ lol

    http://s.pro-gmedia.com/videogamer/media/images/pub/large/mgs5_phantom_pain_ce.jpg

    edit.. quick Q, why wasnt the other version with full size arm sold anyplace else in the world??

    • gdeuce

      because only Japan gets the better collector’s edition of every game ever

  • solidsnack

    i’m looking forward to long after the release when we can come here and talk about all the stuff in the game and cry together :’-)

      I really hope Greg thinking the Story was not good, was just Greg loving PW Story too much.

      • JJBYACH

        I liked peace walkers story up until the 3rd act where I believe it went way too melodramatic for even Metal Gear standards – like when Snake called the president, and there were like seconds to the launch, and peace walker drowned itself and Huey was like “she was using her heart” or some cringefest like that, yet again one of my favourite Metal Gear moments ever was Snake’s dialogue with Amanda and then Chico – some of Hayter’s best voice work. I think (hope) TPP narrative due to we already knowing how it all ends will give Kojima more leeway to focus less on fan-service and create a more lower key, metaphoric surrealist piece that will leave things like BB’s morality up to interpretation and create as many questions as answers…

  • H’m

    Make sure you check your list to be sure you dont get screwed over dlc
    wise people come release day peoples

    • Danny Patten

      Which codes are missing? Did they clear that? Above they seem to have 2 flyer with DLC codes.

      • H’m

        they have said codes would be through email or on receipt but just make sure to check them..

  • MichaelPayneV

    From what I have seen looks like TPP Open World is just like Arkham, but with Red Dead like Maps!

    • H’m

      To be honest kinda wish they had not have shown the map images above…

      • MichaelPayneV

        Why not? That’s what TPP is about, planing your approach. Having a physical Map makes you feel more like Snake!

        • H’m

          no, i dont care the maps included.. i ment showing it here/now on mgi

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well, we already saw them, or you could, you know, scroll past them.

          • H’m

            i hadnt seen them yet, but put it in front of me i wont be able help myself, dont and i wont go looking .. πŸ™‚ but i do agree 4 comments up

          • MichaelPayneV

            Anyway, they are not spoiler, you are in advantage for seeing them now!

          • H’m

            yeah… true

      • MichaelPayneV

        To be honest I will use mostly the physical map to plan my missions to immerse myself, to feel like in 1984 like a real Soldier.

    • Danny Patten

      Arkham is waaaaay smaller though, trust me. You can fly from top to bottom in Arkham in a couple of minutes where it would take you like 40mins + just in Afghanistan.

      • MichaelPayneV

        So Afghanistan is exactly as big as Far Cry’s 4 Kyrat. Niiice!

    • MrVux007

      I wouldn really compare the size of Arkham knight with TPP…
      im pretty sure TPP is bigger

      • MichaelPayneV

        No, not size, but concept, The Open World only with enemies and no pedestrians, like Arkham, but with Large Maps with outposts and a lot of empty space, like Red Dead.

        • MrVux007

          im rly sure about no pedestrians since they did mention the paramilitary compounds in Africa and Afghanistan…but we shall see soon enough ! πŸ˜€

  • Golgari

    That CE looks fantastic Nyx. Really good looking box and great looking bionic arm. Can’t wait for mine πŸ˜€

    • Gatsu

      Dont tell me you and crimson are gonna get it before me T_T…

      I dont want to be the last ;O
      P.S. when I get my own one, I’m gonna bombard MGI with images of holding TPP too lol.

      • I’m getting it way later, don’t trip haha. I can’t afford it right now, I’ll have to get it from a third party in a couple months.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Couple months?!?! (With David Hatter’s voice)

        • Gatsu

          Okey xD. But it’s nice that you played majority of it already <3. Its funny that we all get to play it very soon but I feel like I'm one of the last fans getting it, haha XD.

          • H’m
          • Alex Lopez Manriquez

            I got it wendesday and let me tell you this: they may played early for reviews and that but with weapons unlock and rushing thru story, they kill part of their fun, when you got it and explore it at your pace , have excitement of get an S rank just with your tranq gun ,replay a mission to got the side objective, see how mother base grow. trust me TPP is unique even to MG standars and not for the open world

      • Ardens Anima

        I’m just glad that I managed to pre-order this one.
        this one is sooo special and I haven’t even played it yet, I’m glad this is the one that I pre-ordered, even if it’s just day one version. πŸ˜€

  • Gatsu

    COMRADES! The countdown is almost less than 2 days :O woooaaah !

    Our coma awakening is getting closer, You feel it too don’t ya ?!…

    Damn I’m going nuts with these last hours. Off to watch some movie, adios amigos.

    • MichaelPayneV

      I recommend you “Predestination” if you want some good quality SF mindfukk.

      • gdeuce

        that movie was terrible

  • MichaelPayneV

    YongYea made a great point about the 80’s “Apocslipse Now” filter, that Konami should take in consideration adding it later on PC at least.

    • MrVux007

      im pretty sure if they wanted to do it they would put it on both PC and current gen versions…

      • MichaelPayneV

        Based on what Hideo said, the Filter was very demanding Graphics wise, which is why it will only be possible on PC for those with High End PC’s.

        • H’m

          About a 1 hour after release there will prob be a mod πŸ™‚

        • MrVux007

          i cant comment whether or not if its only possible on high end PC-s(and keep in mind a lot of the game assets are still tied towards the last gen consoles) … he only stated the following(note the picture)
          but im sure modding community will figure something out

          • MichaelPayneV

            This is more or less what I said.

            And yeah, hopefully the modding community will make it, all tough I would have preferred whatever Hideo’s version was over any mod.

          • MrVux007

            You have to keep in mind that when developers make some features for the game they have to answer two important questions:
            1)How demanding on the budget that feature is?
            2)How demanding that feature is on mid-high end systems,and is it even worth optimizing?

            Trust me if it wasn’t doable on current gen systems it sure as hell isn’t worth the budget or time….”time is money” after all
            That is why im 100% confident that modders will add the feature (for those who are able to run it) ASAP….

          • JJBYACH

            When I get the game on PC I will switch Snake’s model with Kojima’s and try to recreate the Elegia trailer, I wish there was a character model of the Konami CEO that I would replace with Skullface.

          • MichaelPayneV

            I will try to replace Snake with Max Payne.

    • JJBYACH

      Chromatic Aberration screen-effects are already present in the game, there should be a mod made to enable it constantly, mixed with the 80s filter the game be like:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRzTDdqenhc this is a GOOD REVIEW! check it out

    • MichaelPayneV

      None of the Reviews will be as good or relevant as these guys.

      The Black Hokage
      Chris Stuckmann
      Jeremy Jahms
      Angry Joe

      And last, but not least, Total Biscuit.

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        I can’t wait to see Joe and TB do it. At least I want a Port Report from Biscuit.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Yeah, already imagine Joe in the Hospital Snake Clothes, and Corporate commander attacking Angry “Punished”Joe with Microtrasictions!

      • H’m

        Dont visit the site much but i enjoy there reviews over at gametrailers..at least, the narrators voice just pulls me in

        • MichaelPayneV

          If you want proffesional reviews from possibly the Best Movie Reviewer on YouTube, who got in to Movies thanks to MGS1, then Chris Stuckmann is the Review you are looking for.

          His also never uses gameplay footage for his Reviews, just him talking, and screens from time to time.

          • H’m

            im more of a jeremy jahns guy, stuckermans ok and i do watch him now and then…for his films reviews, but i wouldnt consider him a gamer as such,
            angry joe i find is like pewdiepie… (not a hater of either) but less is better

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well, Joe is from Texas, so he tends to be funny, and I like him, he is indeed Angry Joe, he is more a Comedian, and a damn good one!

        • Alex Lopez Manriquez

          this is a “parody” review so is just to fool around

      • JJBYACH

        And don’t forget yourself. You yourself will always be the best critic…

        • MichaelPayneV

          Hmmm, I feel obvious sarcasm.

            He means if the person playing this game enjoys it, then that’s all that matters. Fuck the reviews

        • Ardens Anima

          Agreed.
          As I do have a separate opinion from AJ, as the amount of time I’ve put in GZ justifies Me getting it.
          What I’m saying is, You can’t really trust reviews one hundred percent, as each and every person is their own. πŸ™‚

  • Hello brothers! I made a fan trailer for MGSV earlier this week (which took around 4-5 hours) since I’m so hyped for the game. It’s the first time I’ve worked with a video editor, but I still hope someone will enjoy it. πŸ™‚ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQulSk0G-Hk

    I am super glad I pre-ordered this version. Of course the Premium Edition would be even better, but oh well. Better than no arm at all!! And I’m getting the MGS V PS4 as well, so all’s well πŸ˜€ JUST ANOTHER 2 OR 3 DAYS DEPENDING ON WHETHER WE CAN SELL IT A DAY TOO EARLY!!!

  • MrVux007

    (semi-off topic) now imagine how would MGSV clouds look if it was current gen only ^^ http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/121947/new-video-shows-off-horizon-zero-dawns-amazing-landscape-effects/

    • MichaelPayneV

      The same, as the Game was made on PC, then put on Consoles.

      • MrVux007

        the same as the clouds shown in the video?maybe even better…GG has a really powerful engine but FOX engine is no joke…consoles dev tools and PC dev tools were never the same

        • MichaelPayneV

          MGS I’s trying to be more like an 80 Movie, so the clouds are not that complex.

          • MrVux007

            sorry i completely lost you on that one….
            80s movies have the same cloud quality as todays movies lol
            the only thing that changed is the filter(image quality,as far as the visuals go)

    Is there alternative cover art like there was on GZ? That would be awesome

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      I read somewhere that the control scheme is on the inside, but theres plenty of printable templates that look awesome, all have been custom made by the mgs community

      • Kojimatroll

        I saw those but Yoji Shinkawa’s art is just amazing

        • GrayFoxWasTaken

          they have used his artwork to make covers

    • No, not for this version at least. But GZ didn’t have a reversible cover either in Europe.

  • Ralexion

    So in the end the DLC codes come with the package? No need to contact Konami and stuff?

    Talking about this: https://www.facebook.com/konami/posts/10153032343681121

    I am going to get this edition and my retailer is not on the list, so I was kinda pissed off about it.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      they will email it to you

      • Ralexion

        No, my retailer (Spanish GAME) is not on the list, so no email/DLC voucher for us in stores (actually, Spanish GAME wont even answer questions about this issue, im assuming they dont know jack about it, but still). If we dont get the DLCs inside the package, we have to contact Konami’s support, and im guessing they will take their sweet time. In fact, in the Facebook’s post, the links posted by Konami itself lead directly to support tickets for America and Asia, but not for Europe, the link for Europe just gets you to the general webpage, and the support ticket for the Spanish version of the web doesnt even work, it just redirects me to the front page, so if I dont get the vouchers, I will need to google Konami’s spanish support mail, mail them, and pray that its the real one they use, and then, that they actually deliver a good and quick customer service.

        Gee, sorry if I sound salty, really, but I think its pathetic they commit such a dorky error “uhhh, we forgot to get the DLC vouchers inside the boxes, sorry about that”, for the CE, noneless, and they warn us so late, TPP is around the corner. I dont actually care that much for those DLC, but if they come with a packaged I payed for, you know, I want to own them and use them.

    • It seems like it differs per region.

      • Ralexion

        I see, I hope they save me the hassle. Thanks for the info.

  • mcbennet

    Oooo man I couldn’t help myself and studied the map poster a bit..I hope the warzones are big enough and not just limited to those two!!!!

    • JJBYACH

      Nah, those are the only open world maps.

      • mcbennet

        Damn that’s too bad. Don’t get me wrong this game will be amazing I’m just worried about Peace Walker-levels of repetition within small areas.

        • JJBYACH

          Valid concern, but from what I’ve seen and heard each area of the map(s) looks diverse and rigorously tested to accentuate the risk vs reward improvisation gameplay mechanics of each and every playstyle.

    Hi MGI Comrades. i knew this website since the hype for Ground Zeroes πŸ™‚
    I saw these DLCs and is still missing one. With the – Day One edition DLC – , we only got 1 camo, 1 weapon, 1 cardboard box. 1 dlc still missing that gave to us 4 camos, 4 weapons, 3 cardboard boxes and venom snake emblem, This dlc include the weapon, camo and cardboard box from the – Day One – dlc. So… if we got only the – Day One – we only get 1 camo, 1 weapon and 1 cardboard box… inside the CE of Xbox one, are 3 dlcs, Metal Gear Online DLC, Day One and Collector Edition.

      I wish they would just release it on Steam already, when 50% of the world have it by now. It sort of make no sense that we cant play it when so many do, although I understand they gotta follow the release date agreements.

      • Andy37649

        “Day one edition” my ass. I mean, the modern era of gaming is so silly: Day one, microtransactions. I expect them to pretend our asses in 5 years, lol.
        Either way the majority of us is getting the game on September 1st, so no problem at the moment. It just makes me smile the fact that they paste usless things on games boxes.

        • Gatsu

          Yea even Kojima gave Troy, Robin, JJ Abrams “Day 1 Edition” copies, Yong, Python, Sssniperwolf and the Zillion other fans including half of MGI members already have it.

          I’ve watched the trailers, gameplay and chatted here for 3 years just to play the game. Rubbing my nose in the damn bloody websites, all for revenge. The hours I’ve spent, the waiting I’ve suffered…won’t stop hurting. I need my f*cking game :(.

          • Andy37649

            To me it’s not a problem if Troy or Robin gets it, i mean, they worked on the game, they earned it. The problem is when the game is sold to people who enjoys ruining the game experience to others. And i know what i’m talking about because a fu*ker spoiled me on “some” things, which i hope won’t turn into reality.
            Man, I understand you so much. Every single time i go out for work I always listen to “Elegia” and I imagine myself as Snake, walking through the hallway, turning me in a demon. And no, I’m not crazy, it’s my hype. Literally over 9000.

          • Gatsu

            True, they do deserve the edition. But I agree that all those scumbags who spoil etc definitely shouldnt. I know its just 2 days left now, but I’ve dreamed of playing it every day and witness those epic cutscenes & story. And it’s not helping the wait at all when so many keep talking how they’re sneaking in mission 10 etc already lol or posting images :3 …

    Look back at the clock and it’s 4:01…

    The Phantom Wait is strong with this one.

  • CaspburnT

    The hurt keeps getting worse… I was just at my local superstore and thought I would check out the game section. There was an empty spot in the display that said mgsv tpp. So I asked the employee about it and they said they must have sold all the copies in the case so she would grab me a copy from the back. So I stood excited as all hell for ten minutes, only for her to return and tell me they sold out all the copies in the back too. I don’t know what’s worse, the fact they sold all of their copies early or the fact that if I had tried a day earlier I would have had one of those copies!!! So mad!

    • kirtanloorii

      I would have broken something on the way out.

    • J_muse72

      This pain…this must be how Kaz feels.

      These last few days of the wait are gonna be severe as hell. =(

    • FMercenary

      If I go on release day to get my pre-ordered copy of TPP only to find out that they sold out all copies that they had before the release date, they are going to get more than revenge coming their way!

      • Mini gear

        they be forced to work at konami as interns for life!

  • Andy37649

    You know what’s the worst thing? That every game seems so boring. It’s like … i can’t find a reason to play other games with TPP coming in less than 2 days :'(

    • kirtanloorii

      That’s exactly how I feel too. I actually have hundreds of games too. None of them sound fun compared to TPP.

      • Andy37649

        I guess that’s because Mgs has always, always been so inspirational for all of us. I remember that when i was waiting for GTAV i was like:”Well, yeah, i want so bad this game”. When i got it, I played it for 2-3 months, but it left me absolutely nothing. i mean, the gameplay was insane, the open world beautiful, but it didn’t give me any emotion. Actually, searching for emotion in GTA is barely stupid, but what i’m trying to say is that we all care for MGS, its characters, its overall story. The saga is a part of me, it changed me so much, and being Big boss my favourite character of the whole franchise, just try to imagine what i’m feeling right now..
        Ahhhhh I can’t take it anymore, i’m in love with this saga :D.

        • J_muse72

          Exactly the same here.
          Big Boss is my favorite character.
          Solid Snake is second.

      I am only playing Skyrim and other PC games because I mod them, but the feeling doesn’t last long.

      I know! I have been trying to run through Until Dawn, but I just keep turning on Ground Zeroes… xD

  • J_muse72

    The lady at my local Target said that they are sold out of TPP.

  • vic boss

    Who’s going to do this when the CE arrives. I know I will. xD

    • H’m

      BAAAAAHAHAHAAAAAA…

    • Chriss Kama

      I’m done talking.

    • LetTheLegendComeBackToLife

      i guarantee you that I will do this

  • J_muse72

    I know, I am going to wait for my CE, I choose to suffer with my companions here sr MGI!

  • clintonmeade40

    Anyone have any idea when the digital download will be available for preload on psn? I’m seeing some ppl on friends list playing it but I know that’s broken release date copies.

    • J_muse72

      Tomorrow I think.

    • vic boss

      Tomorrow

    • The 30th it’s available to play at midnight EST (New York) 9p (Los Angeles)

      • H’m

        a day early ??

      • clintonmeade40

        Really wish they had preload before then, Idk if my lame isp will have it downloaded in time to play when it releases.. my ce hasn’t shipped yet and it says 2-4 days for delivery..

      • clintonmeade40

        And it’s now the 30th est, and it hasn’t started preloading.. happy for everyone who’s getting to play it but also pissed that I can’t because we’re actually sticking to release dates

      Facepalm: TPP PC has Physical Coppies World Wide, on Amazon!

      • Facepalm: copies*

        • MichaelPayneV

          Facepalm: I done fukked it up, didn’t i!?

  • PhantomSnake

    Just tonight and tomorrow night to get through then my reservation will be fulfilled. Have had a copy reserved the past 2 months.

  • thetrooper1989

    So is the timer countdown accurate based on European time. I live in the United states so will the game unlock for me at the above countdown or 12:00 am September 1st? I’m so confused and aroused at the same time.

    • H’m

      how may hours left on it

    • Fritillary

      It’s accurate for I’m guessing the the UK, it’s almost 9 hours ahead for me here in Alaska.

    • Yeah, the timer on the site is for Europe

    • PhantomSnake

      I will be getting a physical copy from GameStop so right now it is Like 1 day and 22 hours until I get my copy. Then I have to walk my butt home which takes 30 minutes to get home from my local GameStop then I have the install time. I am just curious how long a physical copy will take to install.

      • thetrooper1989

        Damn dude, you have to walk 30 minutes home, thats dedication. Just remember to be careful while walking home at night and look both ways. I know I sound like a worried mother but sometimes hype/adrenaline gets the best of us.

        • PhantomSnake

          I walk just about everywhere lol. Also I generally am careful no matter what is going on i keep a level cool head. Anyways the area I will be walking in is pretty much dead around 11:00 P.M.

  • Maik O’Bannon

    I’ve got a question for Nyxus:
    After TPP is gonna hit the stores, are MGI ‘s articles still going to be spoilers free?
    (I ‘m so frightened about it that I’m reading almost no comments here since a week or so)

    • We’re going to monitor comments for about a week or two. We’re trying to give everyone enough time to finish the game. It’s freaking huge haha we will allow discussion of the prologue on the 1sr though.

      • vic boss

        Please do it at least until Friday, that way that would give time to everyone to atleast beat the hospital mission.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Well, he could make an article called Spoiler Review, where people who finished the game will be.

    • Gatsu

      If we don’t get some sort of spoiler discussion thread, then we try our best to keep comments spoilers free for 2 weeks.

      Or then as crimson said for first week spoiler free of everything but prologue.

      Need to decide what’s the best plan.

  • Tyler Torgersen

    I need this peice of art in my life now! I have so much hype, but if it comes early, I dont think I have the heart to open my ce box knowing that there are still people here who havent recieved their copies yet. I want us all to experience the joy of smelling the package and gazing in awe as we all run it for the first time on our systems! XD so I will wait till the 1st if it happens to come early

    • If it comes early… Do what must be done. Play the shit out of it.. for me…for us

      • Tyler Torgersen

        I know I am going to look at the package for at least 30 minutes before opening though haha

        • Gatsu

          I’m complete opposite, I will start playing asap after putting my prosthetic arm to show V for victory ;)!

    • vic boss

      I’m going to wait until Thursday at the earliest to get my CE, I rented the game through gamefly and I hope that comes faster than my CE. I want to play the game , but I’m not willing to give another 60 bucks for it.

      • H’m

        unfortunately i am… if preload goes up soon in australia i wont be able to help myself even though i have ce on order also

  • Hussain Alkhalaqi

    The game approaches and no one has answered the biggest and most important question of all time, can we shoot water tanks above the portable toilets to make em leak.

    • VFox

      Thats the first thing im doing in afghanistan!1!!!!

  • clintonmeade40

    If preload is supposed to begin on the 30th for psn, can anyone tell me why mine won’t download? It’s 120am on the 30th here.

    • vic boss

      In my case is just barely past 12 am of the 30th here. You have to wait until 9 or 10 am or even past that, sometimes until 4 pm for the game to start downloading

      • H’m

        would be good if sony had a external timer clock eg site for ps4 pre-orders,pre-load times

  • clintonmeade40

    Also, my wife has a ce ordered for her and I have one for me, does anyone know any update on the dlc codes not being in the ce box?

    • Ask your retailer about it, depending on the situation on their end they’ll e-mail you the codes or put them on your receipt.

      • clintonmeade40

        Purchased them through gamestop. I’ve called for the past 3 days and wait times have been over 30 minutes everyday, me being at work, I can’t just sit there and be on hold, I walked around with my cell with them on the line, 30 minutes later, still no sales associate. In store they say they can’t help

        • Did you order online?

          • clintonmeade40

            Mine was ordered in store, but had to fill out a form for shipping because they said it wouldn’t be coming to stores. The wife’s was purchased online

  • Randomsniper

    V is available in my country at the store where i always buy video games in the capital

  • vic boss

    My guide has shipped , that will arrive in September 1st, but my CE won’t arrive until the 3rd at the earliest. It hasn’t even shipped yet. I guess I’ll have to wait a little longer.

    • Hussain Alkhalaqi

      Don’t worry, you won’t be the last guy to play it, at least yours won’t arrive, me on the other hand, will have to download 28gb in one day, and my network connection sucks so bad, you wouldnt believe it, i’m talking 300kb/s AND with disconnects from time to time, so yeah.

      • vic boss

        O shit , that sucks my friend, it really does , I can’t imagine how you manage to live with that speed , even when I had a 2 mb download speed it was awful , now with just 300kb/s , that will take a whole lot of time.

        • Hussain Alkhalaqi

          Possibly 3 days, It’s gonna be the toughest 3 days of my life knowing that I HAVE the game but unable to play.

      • H’m

        Most ps4 games are usually playable before complete download so thats a lil something i suppose

        • Hussain Alkhalaqi

          I have it on steam…

          • H’m

            oh.. πŸ™

      • JJBYACH

        That’s my Internet speed… I know how it feels, all my 30 hours of GZ is on my PC, so I just bit the bullet and got the PS4 physical copy…

    • The Reaver

      I guess I’m in the exact same situation. My guide will likely come on the 1st, too, and my CE hasn’t shipped so I have no idea when it will actually arrive, though I’m pretty sure it’ll at least ship on Monday. I just wish I could already know when my CE arrives so I can plan my time around it, until then, I’m just paranoid that something’s going to go wrong with the delivery.

  • H’m

    im just sitting here bored staring at this … sigh.. πŸ˜› and the rating of 14 annoys me arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  • x-muro-x

    So the dlc code absence doesn’t affect all PS4 CEs? πŸ™‚
    edit: sorry my bad, I just realised it’s picture of D1 dlc πŸ™‚

  • JJBYACH

    So I live in Edinburgh and according to Amazon tracking the game is now in a carrier facility in the neighbouring city (Glasgow) which is like 1 hour 30 mins away by drive. I’m pretty sure though that stuff doesn’t get moved around between depos on Sunday’s but if so – I could get the game on Monday: I really doubt it but it’s possible.

      FYI that’s kind of wrong you know, the stabbing in the neck. The best place to stab would be in the lungs so that he couldn’t even make a sound since all the air from his lungs would empty. They taught us that in our military service. πŸ˜‰

    • MrVux007

      which segment did you watch ? from (0:00 to ?:??) so i could safely watch it spoiler free

      • gerber

        I skipped all over the video and watched few minutes here and there. I am pretty sure there are no spoilers

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2015-can-last-gen-consoles-handle-mgs5 I’ve been playing it for two days now on ps3….put in more than 24h and it feels like I’m still at the beginning …performance is the biggest issue… especially in cutscenes…but it’s playable and I’m enjoying it very much…I had though time deciding if I wanted to wait a few months or more till I get a job and buy ps4…but I’ll save S-ranking and 100% for that….

          Well, funny thing is that when i said talk, i actually meant talk, not anything else, i mean i would love to stand with her at a table, at a drink, and talk about Metal Gear and Gaming, and her career and future plans, and eventually take a picture with her, and then just see how the discussion evolves.

  • Danny Patten

    10 Suggestions to kill the day:
    1. Binge watch The Hobbit + Lord of the Ring extended cuts
    2. Binge watch Star Wars or the Twilight Saga
    3. Binge watch your favorite TV Show or Anime (mine would be The Nanny or Detective Conan)
    4. Take a hike
    5. Imgur
    6. Start doing chores
    7. If you have a significant other; have some bed time
    8. Finish that Book you started but forgot about.
    9. Start to learn something new. I always wanted to learn how to make Candles.
    10. S-Rank GZ if not done already, else replay any other game

    These are not exclusive to each other. Combine them like you want.
    I personally recommend doing chores first, because they always stop the fun train after a while.

    • MrVux007

      1.The first one is my monthly “must do” ….err “chore” πŸ˜›

    • BlankAzure

      Oh cool Detective Conan is one of my favorite animes too lol
      Great list tho

  • MrVux007

    I know it maybe to early to ask….but i was wondering,now that the wait is mostly over (for most of us)….
    Which other game have you been waiting for a long time/looking forward to its release ?

    To me it would probably be the FFXV and The Last guardian…ive been waiting for those games to be released for almost 10 years since they were annaunced in 2006(FFXV) and in (2007) The Last guardian πŸ˜€

    • H’m
      • MichaelPayneV

        From what i have seen so far, i think i’ll stick to Absolution. Cinematics wise, that was The Best!

        • H’m

          is going back to its roots more open and less linear….

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yes, but what i don’t like is that it doesn’t seem like this one has a Story to tell, like TPP!

          • H’m

            i found absolution (enjoyed it) but quite vague… i thought they did kane and lynch better story wise, you should check that out if you never have

      • AeroGre

        Cant wait for this game either, Hitman goes back to what its supposed to be, you, a big open map and your target.

    • MichaelPayneV

      For me it has to be Max Payne 3, 3 years waiting for that mothafukka!

      • MrVux007

        i actually was talking about upcoming games ^^ (besides MGSV) πŸ˜€

        • MichaelPayneV

          Oh, that has to be Zero Horizon, it reminds me of “Enslaved: Oddysey to the west” a really great underrated Game!

    • VFox

      No announced games on the horizon for me, Im kinda “retiring” with Phantom Pain.. I will of course be back for RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2!

    • Consider yourself lucky, some are waiting for almost 7 years (next gen)…

    • NameUndecided

      If it will be any consolation to you and if you didn’t know already — if you ordered with an Amazon Prime membership, go into a customer service chat and tell them you are displeased that your order is arriving late (might have to wait until it’s actually arrived late) and they usually will apologize and give you a free extra month of Prime for this. This works for any time a Prime order takes longer than 2 days if you selected that option.

  • Sockerfri

    Hey guys, Im nearly two hours into the game. Does anyone know how to import the data from GZ? I havent found the option yet.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Before I leave.

      There is an option in GZ to upload your save, then you can download for TPP.

      • Sockerfri

        I already uploaded from GZ. Do you have to do it before starting a new game, perhaps? And what if Ive already started? Does that mean Ill have to start over again?
        I feel like a dumb child, not figuring this out by myself… πŸ˜›

        • No Place For Hayter

          I have no clue from here, lol. It should just be in the main menu though, weird.

          • Sockerfri

            Allrite. Thanks for the info! Ill just play a little bit more and see if it shows up. Happy gaming, guys!

          • Yeah you have to play past the prologue and then the option is there in the start menu.

    • Mini gear

      ive seen it on main menu in air control from e3

      • Sockerfri

        Ye, thats right! Ill have to play a little further then, perhaps. Thanks alot!

  • ThisIsSnake!

    Please will someone reply to this post when they play MGSV. I want to know if the controls have been improved over GZ. Is the aiming a lot smoother? and how does the aiming compare to the pre GZ Metal Gear titles. This could be the deciding factor in buying it for me.

    • J_muse72

      I will let you know in detail when I get it in a few hours.

      • ThisIsSnake!

    I’ve been having Ground Zeroes live streams just playing in the background through my PS4 for about a half hour. I exited out of the streaming app for a moment then went back and saw that TPP was now streaming — I even entered into it real briefly by accident (I saw no spoiling thumbnails).

    I just thought it was funny, but not unpredictable, that Ground Zeroes was near the very top of the list in number of people streaming the game, to suddenly near the bottom as soon as Phantom Pain’s streaming was opened up.

        No worries. I’ve got the PS4 digital ready to go and the CE is in the mail! I’ll POSSIBLY be getting it for steam as well. Depends if a few of my close buddies pick it up too or not. See you kids on the other side!

    • MichaelPayneV

      I’ll be on PC for at least 8 hours from now, even if at this time i’m awake from like 23 hours ago!

      ALL FOR REVENGE!

  • AeroGre

    I have watched The Phantom Hype video like over 100 times today

  • Mini gear

    inly 37 mins left…… i cant believe it

    • Gatsu

      • MichaelPayneV

      • Mini gear

        i cant understand. it still feels like forever wait, i need to shake off hype hibernation πŸ˜€

      Spoiler Free Fun Fact: We already saw Big Boss in his Venom Snake form in MGS4, but we didn’t pay attention!

      http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130621124827/metalgear/images/e/ef/Big_Boss_MGS4_Artwork.JPG

      You can see a pretty big black scar exactly where Snake initially had the shrapnell in the GDC 2013 Trailer!

      MIND BLOWN!

      • Gatsu

        Damn, you’re right !

        • MichaelPayneV

          Yet in MGS4 he doesn’t have any scar, which what led me to delieve that in MGS4 the one who dies isn’t Big Boss, and that Big Boss actually ends up becoming the Cybirg Ninja from MGS1, due to losing more than his left arm!

          • JJBYACH

            I have nothing wrong with the idea of BB is Grey Fox it’s just the logic of some people (*cough*cough* pythonselkan), if it’s handled in a way that makes sense and isn’t stupid and creates loads of unnecessary plot holes, like BB’s return in MGS4, then I’m down with it.

            EDIT: another thing that irks me about that theory is that if it turns out to be true the initial believers will all come out and say I told you so, but in reality it was just luck as all their evidence was baseless and made after the fact.

  • MarcoRM82

    almost there brothers

  • Gatsu

    I just wanna say to everyone that…V HAS COME TO!

    • MichaelPayneV

      Already?

      • Gatsu

        Well almost :3

        • MichaelPayneV

          Ohhhhhhh, buy, haven’t slept for like 24 hours, but what is really 24 hours to 9 years, i can stay up at least 8 hours from now!

          • Gatsu

            Well said! Just drink lots of coffee bro.

          • MichaelPayneV

            I will…not, the sleepy mood will improve my “Intro Experience, as Snake is really sleepy!

  • Scubaru

    Since the video is 6 minutes and 9 seconds long i figured I’d post this right now. Since ya know, 6 minutes and 9 seconds till we can play!

  • MichaelPayneV

    Everyone after the (first non-stop 12+ hours of) phantom pain will be like…

    • Gatsu

      Oh maan, finally get to play this scene!!!

      • MichaelPayneV

        Well, no spoilers, calm, but i will say that the FOV in this scene is chanegd, is much closer to Snake!

      • MichaelPayneV

        EDIT: I meant FOV (Field of View)

      • JJBYACH

        I’ve never been so excited to play an opening to a game, it’s probably all I’ll managed to get past today but, aw man, I hope I don’t get a heart attack as soon as I install the game.

        • Gatsu

          haha yeah lets hope that don’t happen to any of us ;D, especially when start the game.

    • Scubaru

      I’m already looking like that, such a long day.

  • RecasasX

    If you guys have slow internet and want to work on trading cards(if available at launch) while waiting for the download, you should use steam idle master. This will allow you to get trading card drops. Hopefully the cards won’t be too spoilery.

  • Adrian Dallegrave

    Thank you MGI! You made the wait bearable.

  • Gawd

    Thanks for MGI!!!

  • Gatsu

    Thanks everyone, get ready for V!

    • MichaelPayneV

  • luvs2spluug3

    ok loaded up mgsv gz on xbox one (to upload my save) i couldn’t yet but that’s not the weird part, i got quick boots achievement ? it states “Started the game and viewed the title screen within the challenge period ” and there is another one for doing all missions on both difficulty’s during challenger period …so ya someone explain this cuz im finding nothing

  • Ryan Locke

    I cant share play it! why not? its all a blocked scene!

    • Ryan Locke

      And it’s failing to log into the server at the beginning :/

      • DDADDB

        Same here, I’ve had the game since Saturday and I still can’t login

        Hopefully now it’s out official it will eventually work at some point today.

        • Ryan Locke

          Other people are streaming it. I just want to share play with my friend. lol

  • vic boss

    I don’t have the game yet but I just came back from my friends house and man. Fucking intro was awesome. One of the best things I’ve seen in gaming. I just can’t wait for wednesday. We stopped right when snake is thrown into Afghanistan. Even though I wanted to play a little bit more.

  • Kara25

    Hello guys! I have the game since yesterday noon but i am so pissed off!! Can anyone connect to the servers and download his save from gz ??? Or is just me??? Also.. I tried about 10 times to redeem my code from early copy of my gz about bonuses in phantom pain and I just get a message about the code be invalid or expired!

  • BurntFM

    Kept you waiting, huh?
    Hi guys I’m back from Internet blackout and it feels weird that there have been so many bullets I dodged(I find out that the internet has been going nuclear and wild these past few days) but I can see now that Kojima himself was spoiling the game since the very first Phantom Pain trailer. And subsequently with every trailer he has released to date. LOL What a troll. Anyways glad to finally be able to visit the site.

  • vic boss

    Have any of you gotten the dlc for the collectors edition yet? If you have how did you get it?

  • vic boss

    Shit I just put the code for the ground zeroes dlc in my ps4 the one from Konami core, but I didn’t see any downloads and I don’t have the game installed yet, so anyone knows if I messed up? Will it be available once I install the game?

  • JBloggs

    Managed to grab one of the last consoles in my city…

    • Aleezy

      Nice! I wished they sold the controller separately :/

  • Victor Medeiros Coelho

    Can someone tell me if the half scale arm is made of plastic or metal? thanks in advance =)

    • Plastic.

      • JBloggs

        Metal Gear Plastic πŸ™‚

  • Invader Zim

    I have a collector’s edition and day-1 edition…….. should I toss the collector’s in my closet and maybe it will be worth $10,000 MB Coins in a few years? Or just prop the arm up with the middle finger up like we all want to do?

  • SholidOnline

    My NA Collctors Edition is not like this. The plastic arm doesn’t look identical (the rustic black/red part), the dang thing does not open friendly (everything just falls out, and you have to jam it back in), and there’s no band around it with a magnet, just a cardboard Diamond Dogs logo. So either your country got this exclusively, or… I have no idea of another option there.

    • It looks like the PAL version is a bit different from the US version.

  • Alex Lopez Manriquez

    i got mine, and checking only the European versions came with the DD metal emblem, still love it

  • Harvey Avatarman

    Has anyone ripped the blu-ray and uploaded the .iso file or something like that?

  • Silverius

    Guys mine did not came with the Magnetic DD emblem on the front, it was only a cardboard cutout glued to the textured box. My CE is from North America by the way, someone else got the same problem?

    • Yeah, the US version is a bit different from the PAL version.

      • Silverius

        Bummer, :'( i really wanted a DD magnet emblem.

  • Enrique Gaspar

    My Collector’s Edition have the emblem made of cardboard and the steel case only can carry one disc, that’s made me a little sad :'(

    • Yes, that mean you have an American version.

      • Enrique Gaspar

        aaa ok, well better than nothing, Thanks for the info, now i have to ask for my dlc codes too :'(

  • GreatShadow

    Bought this Collector’s Edition in Amazon US and the stupid DD emblem is not metallic. It’s a cheap cardboard… WTF!

    • Seems like the PAL version is the better one here.

      • GreatShadow

        Yeah, I’m jealous of Europe. I wanted that shiny thing in my fridge…

      • No Place For Hayter

        Also, the north American steelbook only holds one disc not two.

        Now I really want that DD emblem T_T
