Noticed this dropped online to $59.99 FROM $79.99. Most likely it is this price in store as well. Since its OOS online, its still work checking to see if any local stores still have it for pickup if you are interested.

I bought this for $79.99 in November for PS3. I know they have an extended return policy; but I imagine since I've opened it - and no other store around me has stock - that they don't do extend price guarantees, correct?

You should have went back and waved it in that chick's face.....and, waved the cash in her face, too!


I came here b/c I was sick of low trade-in prices.

Nice catch, OP. Too bad no store within 100 miles of me has any left in stock!

Yea, no price guarantees or price matching (in my experience). If you had been lucky enough to pick up another copy at this price, you could have done a return with your $79.99 receipt.

EDIT: I meant in the case where you've already opened up your copy of the LE.

So I've got these in stock near me, and I was planning on picking up the MGS HD Collection anyway, but I'm wondering if this is worth the artbook. I'm not exactly a sucker for collector's editions, but this one seems to be pretty rare. Does anyone know what the resale value on this might be after I play it through? The GSs here in Puerto Rico don't open on sunday, so I've got time to mull it over lol but if you guys could give me an opinion, I'd be mighty grateful.

You can ABSOLUTELY do a price adjustment. All they do is return it @ $79.99 and rebuy @ $59.99. I do this all the time. None of my local stores had the infamous 2 hero edition but I was still able to get it adjusted. As long as its within the RETURN DATES (which this is until Jan 14 or 15, cant remember the exact day) you are fine. I''m going right when they open.

So why is it again that everyone wants the PS3 version and not the 360 one? I just did a search out of curiosity and there were no stores within a 100 mile radius of me that had the PS3 version but tons of stores around me have the 360 one.

I have BOTH LE's. YEah I know. But I get everything MGS. Anyway. This series is made for a PS controller. It feels OFF using an Xbox controller. Also no pressure sensitive buttons on Xbox. The Triggers yes. But the other buttons NO. It makes the game hard to play as that pressure sensitive is very essential. Throwing grenades is a real issue as well.

You sure about that? I have a copy and even though my GS near me is pretty decent I've never heard of them doing that. Is this an official policy or really YMMV?

Even though it was purchased with some trade ins I'd love the 20 bucks, even if I was just going to turn around and spend it there.

It's more of a nostalgic thing, it has nothing to do with which platform is better (okay, maybe the controller, I said "maybe" because some people still like the Xbox controller better).

I paid $28 for the regular edition (PS3) so I'm not concerned about the LE. Good luck finding a copy of this. Like others stated, two stores around me have the X360 LE in stock and not the PS3 version.

Yeah, its just the art book, though everything comes in a nice cardboard slip case as well.

My closest store has one but its gutted for 360 and I already have a 360 copy. Decisions decisions.
EDIT: How long is Best Buy's return policy on sealed products? I'd buy this and return the game that comes with it to best buy. I bought the game at launch on 11/8/11 so I'm not sure if that's outside the return window for sealed products

Hmm...I still have mine (PS3 version) from November still sealed. Dare I go and try a return and rebuy? I kind of want that extra $30, but don't want that shady feeling. Leaning towards not doing a rebuy.

Might get the Xbox 360 version of the limited edition just to be different and play/rebuy cheaper the PS3 non-limited edition.

Edit: off-topic...anyone else having technical problems? I keep getting logged out within a few minutes. Already know that after a certain amount of time you automatically get logged out, but this seems a lot shorter duration.

The PS3 version is on one disc, and also features pressure sensitive buttons. On the PS2 versions, you could press the face button lightly to raise your gun, and press it all the way to fire. 360 works a little differently, though I'm not sure how they changed it.

Plus having MGS1 and MGS4 playable on PS3, so you have the whole collection on one system.

Hmm...see that tons of Xbox360 version are out there, but no PS3 one. I own the PS3 version, but How does it play on the Xbox360? I wanna keep my PS3 version sealed, but hope the controls on the Xbox360 aren't clunky to play on.

I've already played through MGS2 on 360, the controls are fine.

I bit the bullet and had it remember me on both of my PCs recently as I grew really fucking tired of being logged out after viewing, I don't know, two threads?

As for the pressure-sensitive buttons, I was never aware any buttons on a PS controller were pressure sensitive aside from the triggers. I really can't wrap my mind around that...

...because MGS is a Sony series. It doesn't belong on the 360.
