My Metal Gear Solid HD Collector's Edition arrived today.

13 Replies 510 Views Created 31-01-2012

I got the normal copy for Christmas via import. I completely forgot I ordered this until a few days ago. I tried to cancel it but Zavvi said it has been sent. But today it arrived in a big box. Before I opened the brown box I thought its pretty big for a standard tin game.

 

I opened it up and the game comes in a pretty big cardboard box. Who has the Fallout New Vegas Collector's Edition? It is around 2 in a half sizes bigger than that. What also surprised me is they also threw in MGS4 standalone game as well.

 

Am going to keep this collector's edition but not open it. As there is only 8000 made and its only available from Zavvi.co.uk.

Good idea. Keep the collectors edition for the future and eventually send it to somebody you really really hate.

Don't suppose you fancy selling it to a home where it will be loved and be treated real nice?

Do you know if you got a download code of MGS1 included?

 

Was the additional copy of MGS4 mentioned when you ordered? I'm thinking it was  included with the initial batch of preorders, but something i'm going to miss out on if I order now.

I don't really get all the fuss about mgs, what is it people love about it?

I got bored when I played peace walker, played the first one years ago and didn't get into it. Should I give it another go or is it a bit of a "love it or hate it" kind of thing?

Only if your other hobbies include sipping vomit and curating dog turds.

I've ordered it too! Hoping it arrives today- I didn't realise MGS 4 was part of the deal as well?

When I first ordered it the Limited Edition was exclusive to PS3 with only 4000 being made. It came with a tin case, MGS1 download, MGS2,MGS3,MGS Peace Walker and MGS4 along with art cards and a book.

They then changed the whole thing. The Limited Edition now came to 360 there was 11,000 for that and 8000 for PS3. The updated Limited Edition removed MGS1 download and MGS4 and the art cards and replaced them with a T-shirt.

But when I opened the parcel it had the MGS LE in there (witch is a big box its self) and a Platinum Edition of MGS4. Maybe a lot of people where upset they removed MGS4 so Zavvi just threw in a copy of MGS4 for the people who originally ordered the PS3 LE.

MGS4 was thrown in because they removed MGS1 from the bundle, that's why it was in the box. You only got MGS4 if you had an order placed before it was updated/changed.

Thanks for clarifying that Ocelot and Adycakes.

 

I'm really tempted to get one; i'm sort of a part time MGS collector, but an extra £40 for a tin, t-shirt and book seems a bit steep.

 

Any idea what size t-shirt comes in? Hopefully not massive like all promo t-shirts used to come in.

 

EDIT: Just found out from another site that it's a Medium, so have ordered the LE!

Mine just got dispatched from shopto (only got the SE). Really looking forward to playing through these again, and in chronological order for the first time. As soon as Peace Walker (never played it before) finishes I'm gonna go through the first two Metal Gears, then Metal Gear Solid followed by Sons of Liberty and finally the masterpiece that is Guns of the Patriots. I'm absolutely skint this month so this is perfect. SNNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKKEE
