Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain has Been Restocked at Gamestop

With Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain nearing its September 1 release the big choice for some is which version to buy/pre-order. Good news for anybody wanting the Collector’s Edition it looks like Gamespot have some new stock in.

Available for both the Xbox One and Playstation 4 versions of the game, the Collector’s Edition includes:

  • Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain Game
  • Collectible Steelbook Case
  • Exclusive Packaging
  • Map
  • Half Scale Replica of Snake’s Bionic Arm
  • Behind the Scenes Documentary and Trailers Blu-ray
  • Additional Game Content:
  • Customizable ‘Venom Snake’ Emblem
  • Snake Costume X 4
  • Cardboard Box X 3
  • Weapon and Shield Set X 4
  • MGO Item X 4
  • XP Boost

With the impressive features comes a price tag of $99.99, which while expensive, isn’t too bad when looking at what it includes. One of the most interesting things on the list being the half scale replica of Snake’s Bionic Arm.

It’ll be interesting to see how fast this sells out, especially with the release so close. Whichever version you purchase, and on whatever platform, it will be no surprise when sales will be high.

Whether it’ll be as successful as Konami hope, that may be a different matter. There is a possibility of some form of backlash against the company due to their latest controversies but I highly doubt it, especially with this still being a Hideo Kojima game.

Whatever happens in terms of sales, we do know that the game will be releasing on September 1. Will it be the biggest release of the year so far? Very possibly.
