You don't get charged until it ships. But it does tie up your credit if you have that.


There's simple ways around that

I have no interest in a $100 lamp.

Okay more like $90 because of the steelcase but still. I'd pay $70 for the game with steelcase, if I were sure on preordering this game. I'm at least going to wait until after the demo.

Great math skills.

$150 (Cost of LE) - $59.99 (MSRP of game) does not = $100


Edit: But don't feel bad you're at least the second person who can't subtract $60 from $150

No hold. There might be an authorization charge but probably not if you've used the card with Amazon on previous purchases. Outside of that, they won't charge you until they ship.

I don't care if it's worth it or not, it's Metal Gear & resistance if futile :lol:

Also, to all the "lololol $90 lamp" people, that's not the only thing included. :roll: The Steelbook itself is also a nice addition. But yes, 'tis a bit overpriced.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

WTH is with these lamps? First Dishonered gives you a free oil whale Lamp when preordering from Bestbuy. and now Konami is bundling one in this Metal Gear LE for an extra $100.

Hold on maybe Amazon.com is putting the $150 list price, so they dont get burned like in the pass when they list an LE for $80, and then when price point is officially announced by publisher for $129.99, Amazon would in the past be held by their preorder guareenteed.

My guess is Konami hasent announced a price yet, and Amazon just put the high price point, so when Konami announces it for $79.99-$99.99, they wont eat the $30-$50 price difference.

I wonder if it will be similar to Dishoner pre-order bonus from Bestbuy which is a Whale Oil Lamp/Hybrid USB Flash drive (at least I think flash drive) similar to the Diablo Skull flash drive in the Diablo 3 LE.

I change my mind about the lamp. It's actually a clever bonus after considering the game mechanics. If it was 100 this would be a killer LE for the fans.

Thing is, the lamp might be worth $90 (depending on quality, materials, etc). Whether or not people want to spend an extra $90 for it is another story though, myself included. That being said, since they're packaged together (the game and the lamp), Metal Gear Rising's CE could very well be clearanced out for $50 at some point.

It's a bit of a gamble, nobody wants to buy another Skyrim or Gears of War 3 CE where they launch for $150 and you can get them along the way for $50. However, Platinum has never released a CE in the United States, and MGS HD (for the PS3 at least) and Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence's CE (though not as pricey) got very rare, very quickly. We'll have to wait and see.

it has got to be about 8-10 inches because that is definately a usb cable... and they refuse to put it near anything to compare it to.

sword enthusiasts really need to make a full size mgs raiden sword replica - which i would rather buy and display.
