Today Konami has announced that the price of the physical version of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be lowered from £39.99/€39.99/$29.99 to £29.99/€29.99/$39.99. This is probably in response to the complaints about the game’s price in relation to its length.
The official statement by Konami is as follows:
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced an adjustment in the retail pricing for METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system, to £29.99/?29.99
The change in price matches the digital price for the consoles as well as the retail pricing for the physical editions for the PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360 systems. The digital version of the game for the PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360 will remain £19.99/19.99 Euros.
With the new pricing set for METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES, KONAMI aims to provide as many people as possible an opportunity to experience Kojima Productions’ new FOX Engine and the first instalment in the two-part METAL GEAR SOLID V experience. METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN, the second and final part to the METAL GEAR SOLID V Experience, will launch on both current and next-gen systems at a later date.
For those that already bought and paid for the game, the store might give a refund if you contact them:
