If it came with a good art book like the MGS4 one then it might be worth it.

But this is basically $90 for a lamp.

Wow, that's a crazy price. Love MGS(although this one is not very true to the series), but I see this game dropping fast.

Those waiting for a price drop won't get it because anything Kojima sells out quick and very limited. I'd definately preorder it and slowly pay it off at your local Gamestop. Metal Gear collector editions always hold their value and increase over time. Look at the MGS3 Subsistance LE...that thing goes for $150+ on Ebay. It was $40-50 when it first came out.




Agreed. This will almost certainly be very limited and sell out soon. I think im going to wait and see if there is an international LE with different bonuses. I want an LE for this game but not feeling the NA version of it.

- everything else is irrelavant if you can't even get it.
so first thing is first, just need to know - already sold out? or not...

If this does become limited, it could be worth A LOT.

The lamp would be seen as a great collectors item for sure.

I pre-order JUST IN CASE, but I will more than likely come to my senses right before release like with the SF 25th anniversary collection and cancel. I can't see this selling out right away and I could get the main thing I want out of this, the steelbook, for cheaper by itself on ebay. I have pre-ordered every LE for MGS but this is just pushing it too much... unless the lamp is REALLY killer, which I doubt. Hopefully we get pics soon

This will probably be even more limited then the borderlands 2 loot edition. They will not mass produce that plasma lamp. Only question is will the game have as much demand.

pics of it are all over online - i didn't preorder on some mgs le games and the turn out to sell out within the first month. it is true most things kojima tend to sell out quickly - if you are on the fence preorder - wouldn't wait too long.

Yes pics of it are online but the real question is "How big is it? and what's it made out of?"

Oh derp! Didn't think to google when I didn't see the pic on Amazon. That lamp does look pretty bad ass, but like others have said, how big is it and what quality are the materials. Well I'll leave the pre-order for now.

Just to make sure I'm understanding this completely, the only difference between the non-LE and LE is the lamp? No steelbook, no artbook, soundtrack or anything else?

The LE does also come with a steelbook and the soundtrack.

yeah i was looking for a video or something of it today - or atleast a pic of it next to something to compare size. seems like they left out some very important details.

Thank you both for clarifying that it's more than just the lamp.

Hopefully they'll add an artbook in there like the MGS artbook from the MGS collection and then it'll be closer to being worth its asking price.

Just wait a few months, it will be $29.99 at Best Buy (like every other CE).

Not every CE ends up being $29.99 at Best Buy. If they're big box ones, they may go that way, though not all of them do.

Thanks for the heads up OP. In for 2 PS3 copies. If it's not looking like a typical rare MGS LE then I'll cancel one, but I'm pretty confident I'll end up cutting thecost for my copy by eBaying the second one.

In that case all cosmetics and luxury handbag companies should go out way before them:D

But seriously, this is too steep for my tastes.

If the black ops $180 bundle is sold out everywhere, Id be shocked if this thing doesnt get snagged up. Especially if previous history is any indicator.

you obviously don't know what you are talking about. best buy isn't doing a preorder for the le.

As awesome as that lamp is, it's not worth spending an additional $90. Probably would've gotten it at $100.

If the previous track records of anything LE/CE from Platinum Games and anything Metal Gear is any indication, this will most likely be limited.

I was lucky enough to get the LE/CE version of Bayonetta (from AU) and a statue/special slip cover for Vanquish and those things I believe are rare.

I'd get on this personally, especially for the PS3 version.

Too lazy to make a full alright gentlemen meme, use your imagination

"Alright Gentlemen we need ideas for the new limited edition of Metal Gear Rising"

"Includes a small replica of Raiden, Snake, or a Metal Gear"

"Hmmmmmmm"

"Includes A LAMP"



"GASP!!!!"


The lamp looks really nice and all, but seriously where do they come with these ideas? Same the Mass Effect series, we never got a really good limited edition of those games

I also agree, Konami & Platinum Games CE's have been pretty limited. Not sure how limited this will be but that Bayonetta gun looked pretty snazzy and actually cool unlike many of the crappy statues that come with CE's.

This lamp is also pretty nice but $149.99 just seems to much for me, I -might- get it, but I'll ponder on it for a little longer and see what happens though.
