Re: White outer sleeve MGS4?

At the time I got my hands on this edition, which wasn't even supposed to be sold in NZ... Don't know if it was readily available in the UK or not...

 

 

We couldn't get them in store after the release date... it was only a 'mistake' that they were available for preorder... IIRC the distributors did honour supply of a very limited number of them...

Remember when I said I'd kill u last?? .... I LIIIIED!!

When I got MGS4 on release day, there was 'Just the game' or 'Game and a Snake figure' for a little extra. I got the normal one, and a few months later all the figures in the shop got cheaper so I got Snake too.
It was cool when Gamestation and Grainger games used to compete like that, now the gamestation closed and Grainger owns that patch when it comes to games, it still has nice prices but they never get any merch in stock any more.
Gamestation had this big £50 Dante figurine that nobody bought for ages, and when they closed down I saw someone buy it for £10. XD

Yes that's the copy i have don't plan on selling it at the moment. The first listing sold for £30 and the other for over £50. :smileysurprised: 

 

Not bad for over 4 year old game probably will increase in value the more time that passes.
