Publisher Konami is applying a price cut to Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. Don’t get too excited about grabbing the console release just yet, however, since the reduction is only meant for the physical version of the game, which now comes to €19.99 or an oddly measured £19.99.
Retail versions of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes initially launched for €29.99, which stumped fans and critics alike, given how short this prelude to the main release really is. Konami assured us that the price is warranted, as the game was created to be replayed several times over.
It sounds like the complaints of the price have been heard still, though the numbers aren’t as low as one would expect. In fact, digital copies of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 already cost €19.99, so nothing is changing there.
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is also coming to Steam on December 18, 2014. It’s likely that the price drop would indicate the current standard and will therefore be the price for a PC copy.
Most of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is built around one particular encampment. This latest iteration in the franchise is trying to alter from mostly scripted events to more of an open world sandbox.
Additionally, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes serves as a way to bridge the gap to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which is due for release in 2015. It will feature half-naked mercenaries and boxes with lewd drawings that distract guards, if we have been paying proper attention.
