2 min read


Shine on you crazy Diamond Dog. Now there’s a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky. Shine on you crazy Diamond Dog. You were caught on the cross fire of childhood and stardom, Blown on the steel breeze, Come on you target for faraway laughter, come on you stranger, You legend, you martyr, and shine.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain! Not just a thinly-veiled link to Pink Floyd references! Now also a reason to own a PlayStation 4! Maybe, check with your wife/husband/cat first. As the kind of game that happens to be getting some extra loving on that platform, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will also sport an exclusive PS4 console design that isn’t just for the Japanese. It’s minimal, but I find it dead sexy I does. Here’s what it looks like, with Sony gushing buckets below about he package that will be available across European and Australian territories:

With the next instalment of the incredible Metal Gear Solid series less than three months away, I’m delighted to announce that a Limited Edition Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain PlayStation 4 will be available across Europe, Australia and New Zealand on 1st September.
This exclusive bundle will include a limited edition 500GB PS4 that comes in a distinctive deep red with gold line detail, inspired by the look of Snake’s Bionic Arm.

A special metallic grey Dualshock 4 Wireless Controller, resembling the handgun held by Snake, is also included and both the PS4 and Dualshock 4 feature the unit emblem of Diamond Dogs, a private military organisation led by Snake. You’ll also receive the Day 1 Edition of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain which comes packed with bonus downloadable content.

DEAD SEXY! I’ve already got a PS4 console, but I’m probably going to spend a few bucks on a can of spray paint so that I can pretend that I’m special. Shine on baby, shine on.
