MGS4 LE Components Clarified

MGS4LE.jpg After still feeling a bit uncertain on the exact contents of the Metal Gear Solid 4 Limited Edition pack following this morning’s announcement, I shot an email over to Konami to get clarification on a few things, like the soundtrack, art book and digital graphic novel content. Well I just heard back from Anthony Crouts, Konami Digital Entertainment’s V.P. Marketing, and here’s the scoop. Good news first: the soundtrack will be on a standalone CD! The way the press release and product page were worded gave the impression (to me at least) that the soundtrack was going to be on the Blu-ray disc. But worry not, it will be on its own disc for you to listen to wherever you please. As for the MGS art book, it has been confirmed to me as a free GameStop-exclusive “Gift With Purchase” bonus that’ll be available in limited supply to any consumer of either the Standard or Limited Edition version of the game. So you don’t have to buy the LE to get the art book!

Now for the bad news. The four chapters of digital graphic novel content that GameStop had listed as being featured on the LE Blu-ray disc was actually incorrect (and has already been removed from the product page). There will not, I repeat, will NOT be any content from the digital graphic novel… bummer!
