We have some pretty exciting news now for those of you that are thinking about purchasing the much-anticipated Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, as we’ve recently discovered that UK online retailer Zavvi is offering its customers a very special ‘Ultimate’ edition of the HD Collection. However, fans are being advised that it will be extremely limited in quantity.
In fact, according to a recent article by Pete Davison over on the gamepro.com website, the special ‘Ultimate’ edition of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will be limited to only 4,000 individually numbered copies worldwide. Zavvi has the release date of the special ‘Ultimate’ edition — which has been priced up at £69.85 (around $114) — down as November 25th.
Some of you may now be wondering what exactly makes the ‘Ultimate’ HD Collection stand out from the standard HD Collection. Well, the standard edition of the HD Collection comes with high definition versions of the Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (originally a PSP exclusive) and Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty.
The ‘Ultimate’ HD Collection – which seems to only be available for the PlayStation 3 — on the other hand includes a copy of the Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots game, as well as a PSN code that enables you to download the PSOne version of the very first Metal Gear Solid game. It also comes with five art cards and fancy steelbook packaging.
As Zavvi notes on its support pages, the company does not ship certain products outside of the UK, including — but not limited to — all gaming consoles and other electronic products. However, there is no mention of software, so people living outside of the United Kingdom may be able to persuade the company to ship the ‘Ultimate’ edition of the MGS HD Collection.
The ‘Ultimate’ HD Collection is available to pre-order as from now. Are you interested in buying the Zavvi exclusive ‘Ultimate’ edition?
