Since the collector’s edition for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was announced earlier this week, only a couple of stores have started taking pre-orders, leaving fans in many countries eagerly awaiting their chance to secure their copy. But don’t worry yet, it appears your chance is yet to come.
According to Konami Europe, next week there will be more information on pre-orders in EU countries regarding the collector’s edition. They assured worried fans who have been unable to pre-order thus far that it ‘should be fine’. As to the availability in specific countries, Konami Europe response was that this edition should be available ‘worldwide’ – more or less implying every EU country will get it. So keep an eye on your local retailer(s) next week.
Update: According to Ken Imaizumi, senior producer at Kojima Productions, the US version of the collector’s edition should also be available next week.
