MGS4 Limited Edition Contents, Pricing Confirmed

MGS4_TIPON_3D_FINAL.jpg So, as I told you earlier in the week, I went ahead and pre-ordered a copy of Metal Gear Solid 4 at GameStop this weekend in order to snag myself the Metal Gear Saga Vol. 2 DVD and the Metal Gear Online beta code, and at the time only pre-ordered the standard edition because I couldn’t recall what was planned for the limited edition. Well Konami has jumped in to aid in my decision (though I’m still uncertain of a few things), today announcing the official details on the MGS4 Limited Edition package.

For starters, the MGS4 LE will be available exclusively through GameStop. That’s right, no other stores will carry it! As for the contents, it’ll include collectible packaging with artwork by Kojima Productions illustrator Yoji Shinkaway (pictured right, watch for higher res pack shots next), a bonus Blu-ray disc containing two extensive “making of…” documentaries featuring interviews with Hideo Kojima and the MGS4 soundtrack CD (not sure if that’s a physical CD or if the soundtrack is just available to listen to on the Blu-ray disc), and a copy of the game of course, all for a hefty $85. GameStop’s product listing also states that the Blu-ray disc will contain four chapters of the graphic novel and that LE pre-orders will have a special art book added to the pot, but neither of these items are mentioned in Konami’s press release. I”ll drop a line in to Konami and see what I can find out. Let you know if I find anything out.
