So MGS4 finally has a release date. 12th June 2008 and the image above is the official bundle art work.

Honestly that is the prettiest bundle I have seen in a long time. I am not overly interested in the MGS4 game but that bundle makes me want to give it a bash.

So who’s excited for this game??

    Its times like this I wish I didnt buy my PS3 at launch. Man what an awesome deal. And they announced a God of War PSP bundle too!!!

  • JimBob

    And some people (or one person) think this game isn’t going to sell millions this year. Sony is putting major commitment behind, and I think the hype train has only just left the station.

  • j4nr1k

    Wonder what the price would be? And will we see it in SA?

  • Banana hammock

    The US price was $499, which is about R3600. But based on history i guess the price will be around the R5000 mark.

    I’m worried that most people who love MGS will already have bought a PS3, so while i think the game will sell millons of copies i’m not sure it’s going to be a big console mover. Time will tell though.

    And it will make the fanboy wars interesting because Sony fans have been saying “wait for MGS4 and then you’ll see”. Come June the talk will have to end and we’ll see who was right and wrong.

  • I have to disagree, I think MGS is the Playstations HALO, MGS4 for will sky rocket PS3’s no matter the cost, I think they’ll have plenty of marketing budget to prove this as well.

    I certainly hope it comes to SA, we’ll see more growth in gaming who knows maybe I’d have saved enough to even purchase one.

    June 12th…it all changes.

  • Darthdad

    I wonder if the PS3 will have that Solid Snake skin, or if it’s just a box graphic?

  • Milesh Bhana

    It looks like it’s just the box graphic. But R5000 for the 80GB console and THE game to get doesn’t sound bad. Especially considering that the 40GB is R4500 here.

    I’m still wondering why this “new” console is still bundling the SIXAXIS, Dual Shock 3 bundles need to start already!

  • PillsburyDeeBoy

    @ Milesh – the Metal Gear bundle comes with the Dual Shock 3 – NOT THE SIX-AXIS. Reported on Kotaku.

  • Fox1

    This is similar to the Halo bundles that where available last year. These bundles help to the push the sales of a game that has had huge amounts of money spent on it. Don’t be surprised it comes in at normal retail price of just a console.

    Looking at the box art I would say that if the PS3 doesn’t come with that skin then somebody will surely be making a MGS4 skin. BT Games and those local skinning guys(cue for advertisement πŸ˜‰ ) put together a nice for Halo 3.

    ahh good news about the controller.

    As for skinning, I think it’s blasphemy to cover a pretty shiny PS3 with a vinyl (regardless of how big a MGS fan your are). It’s ok for the 360, they got faceplates and it’s not shiny. Yeah i know, lame opinion.

  • Fox1

    @PillsburyDeeBoy- Make that June 11th if you pre-order(cue for advertisement πŸ˜‰ )

  • I was praying they were going to bundle it, this is exactly what I have been waiting for.

    PS3 here I come.

    Jinja’s last blog post..Eat Your Underwear to Beat the Breathalyzer

  • Fox1

    @Lazy- Why you don’t have the link to the SA Blog Awards 2008? I saw it on Jinja’s blog πŸ˜€

  • LazySAGamer

    @Fox1, cos I’m to lazy πŸ˜€

    Glad to see the last post plug-in is working, I will go see what you are talking about now

  • LazySAGamer

    @Fox1, nominations have closed anyway. Maybe next year πŸ˜‰

  • Fox1

    @Lazy- lol. Is your motto “hakuna matata”? πŸ˜‰

    Well I think that this is one of the top blogs in SA.

    That plug-in is actually handy for the blogo-sphere.

  • doobiwan

    I don’t think we can call lazy’s site a blog, he doesn’t fly off the handle and rant enough πŸ˜‰

  • scotty777

    well… It looks like the 12th of June will be a holiday πŸ˜€

    And Ya, MGS is like the halo for the ps3.

  • Jak

    Sorry guys this is exclusive to North America!

  • PillsburyDeeBoy

    Sorry, Jak, but you’re wrong πŸ™‚ .

  • abe

    Hey lazy I told you we would get the 80 πŸ˜‰
    Im not a fan of MGS, but even im thinking of picking up this title!

  • LazySAGamer

    @Abe, that is the US release box. SK haven’t confirmed if we are even getting a bundle yet.

    Mark my words, we won’t be getting a 80GB model

  • Insanie

    Well, if Eurogamer and Jack Tretton are to believed then Lazy is 100% correct, no 80Gig version..or any version in fact.

  • Insanie

    * are to BE believed
