This comes with an Xbox 360 or a PS3 right? Fucking A. I love Metal Gear, but...I can think of about 10,000 better things to do with my money than flush it down this particular toilet... I mean, even if the lamp is cool...it still says Metal Gear Rising on it. Meaning, it's not good decor.


You can just rotate the lamp so you see the back. Problem solved ;)

I almost bought that cheap one until I saw it was a model and that you have to assemble/paint it yourself. Too bad, I liked how it had the little figurines with it.


Same here. Should have at least had each piece pre-painted... Oh well.

Wow, that lamp is much bigger than I expected. Even if it is USB plug, you can just use a smartphone power adapter to make it work just like if it were a normal lamp.

I want one, but I'm going to take the risk and hope to find it for $100 or less at some point.

I cancelled this to get the european version instead. It comes with a raiden statue.. Much better.

I used to care about value but now I only buy CEs and LEs if I have a genuine interest in the game. And I open them too. Began to realize that you can't enjoy the game without opening it. Otherwise it just collects dust on the side. It saves me headache too to be honest. I used to be indecisive, asking myself often, should I buy this or not? Is it going to be rare? But I'm not a reseller. Just a collector of games I'm truly like. If I'm not impressed by the game, no matter how rare the CE is, I pass on it.


Where did you preorder it from and for how much, if you don't mind me asking?

From zavvi.

There's a risk that your box will be ruined by the carriers.

I think a lot of CAGs who imported the zavvi exclusive MGS HD Limited Edition received theirs in bad shape (the outer box, not sure about the contents though)

I looked that one up, and I'm still thinking this one is the better value. The Zavvi one will end up costing around $20 more due to the importing costs and exchange rate, and all you get is the figure & bonus in game armor.

Now, the figure is a Play Arts Kai figure, so those are very nice and do retail around $50, but that's basically all you're getting. Also, knowing Play Arts, if there isn't one out yet, you can bet the same figure(if not a very similar one) will be available to purchase at some point. I'm pretty sure the lamp will be exclusive to this set, plus you're still getting the steelbook & soundtrack.

$170 for the game & figure seem like overkill when you can probably get the figure(or a similar one) elsewhere, plus you run the higher risk of your package getting severely damaged.

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?

Most of us already have the Zavvi LE ordered and/or the US lamp edition ordered... but damn, wanted to make sure you guys saw this Japan-only release. Not so much an LE game, but an LE console. Awesomeness:

Amazon Japan has opened pre-order for the LE. Those two thing are so freaking cute

http://www.amazon.co...&language=en_JP

8,000 yen is pretty fair price

It is not that expensive ($120 including shipping and such)

Also the Konami Style Japan is taking pre-order for the Premium package

Sorry to bump this, but the lamp size was revealed yesterday. It's going to be 14.17 inches long and 3.54 inches wide according to GameStop. They are also going to be carrying a 24 page artbook for you guys that are still thinking of getting this.

I'm definitely getting it, but I have credit at BB so I might just have to get it there. Wouldn't mind the exclusive Gray Fox skin from GS but I'm sure they'll release it down the road.

Still unsure if I will get the lamp edition or not, seems pretty damn steep even for a Metal Gear collectible.

On a sidenote, didn't think the Super Slim could look good at all, but that PS3 looks sick as hell. Wish I had money to blow.

Gotta say, I'm pretty damn jealous of the stuff Japan is getting for this game, the super slim especially.

I kinda want the lamp but idk..that $150 could buy a 3DS, or a used wii with quite a few older games, or over half of a PS3.

I picked up one of the MGS LEs from Zavvi, and yeah it was pretty banged up when it arrived. I'm not sure if they have changed their packaging, but it wasn't boxed, just the game box in a gray plastic bag/envelope. The contents were fine, but there was nothing really fragile inside, I'd be uncomfortable trusting to ship me the statue safely.

I don't get why you guys are Jealous of those limited editions PS3's that and the ni no kuni ones are crap IMO. It's a tiny Japanese letter in the corner of the console and a blue paint job on top. I'm a hardcore MGS fan but I fail to see how that PS3 is nice or even close to being art. It's a quick cash grab to charge a premium. Those $10 dollar PS3 skins have better art then that.

I swear they could write MGS or final fantasy on any item and some of you would not only buy it but still pay stupid prices.

btw so you guys know I'm talking about the system not the collectors edition. But I still think the MGS one is too expensive for it's contents. Basing monetary value aside I like the quality of the contents of ni no kuni better not to mention almost $50 cheaper.

If others like the design and don't mind the price tag, why are you in the position to define this as "stupid"? Extrapolating your logic, a lot of merchandise has "stupid" prices, a Hermes handbag, a bottle of Lafite, basically all women's high end cosmetics...

Well just as you pointed out Hermes and Lafite as stupid prices which I have no clue what those are. I figured I point out some others.

I guess these are the Hermes and Lafite of gaming.

Some people will go nuts over LE/CE items. If konami released limited edition MGS toilet paper, they would sell like hot cakes. :D
