LOL. I mean, he may not be completely wrong, but it's a guess either way.

They will absolutely make more, but they could be GH. Personally I don't think it will go GH, I think Konami's distributor just hasn't realized they need more copies yet.


yeah I take what he said with a grain of salt, just found it interesting its what he said immediately when he saw the game in my hand

I pointed this out a few months ago when Amazon had MGS HD for $19.99.

Play-Asia is pretty reliable too, and they had it listed OOP/OOS back then.

http://www.play-asia...en-70-49r0.html

Most often when a game becomes a GH, it just simply transitions into it, they don't list the black-labeled game as OOP at all. Not saying it couldn't ever happen, just that it hasn't happened yet, to my knowledge.

Which is why I mentioned back then it would be a good idea to jump on the game while it's still available for the low prices. Since then it's been OOS at Amazon, Newegg, Play-Asia, Gamestop (available in-store in very limited areas and in low stock), Best Buy, etc.

So I wouldn't get my hopes up too high on this particular collection going GH. It could, or Konami could release another MGS collection that includes 1, 2, 3, and 4. Who really knows? Just sayin'.

EDIT:

On a side note, it seems MSG4 (Greatest Hits version) is also listed as OOP/OOS on Play-Asia.

http://www.play-asia...en-70-3fx3.html

And after checking out Amazon, BB, Newegg, Gamestop, etc...they too no longer have the game in stock. Perhaps maybe Konami will re-release a more complete collection...but that's just purely speculative on my part.

The listing on Amazon says its been discontinued by the manufacturer if you look at the product details. Not sure how accurate that always is though.

You still can't go by third party retailers. A perfect example is play Asia has MGS4 GH US version OOP. Once it's offiical from Konami then it's safe to say OOP.

The reason they probably list it now is because they don't know when another printing or greatest hits version will happen and it's probably easier to do that then to completely remove the product from their system.

Look how long Konami took to bring trophies to MGS4 and remake yet another version of it.


Lately there has been a lot of games starting to go OOP and get reprinted again later on.

I'm not jumping the gun in till an official statement is released. Not some guy at gamestop and best buy saying so because they saw it OOP on the same site you did.

The fact that you can still find new copies for less then MSRP price makes me think they are in the process or about to be reprinting/greatest hits.

Problem is publishers do not make official statements regarding their titles going OOP/end of manufacturing on their part. They just do it and move on. So you'll be waiting for a loooong time for that official statement.

Also, Play-Asia didn't just list the games yesterday as going OOP. MGS HD was listed as such over 3 months ago. The reason they are selling cheap at retailers that still happen to have some stock is to clear their inventory on a product they know they will no longer carry. Amazon quickly sold out of MGS HD 3 months ago for $19.99, no new inventory from them since. Same with Newegg, BB, Gamestop, etc. The fact both of these titles are no longer available from most of the top retail chains (both online and in-store) makes it relatively easy to deduce that the titles are, more likely than not, OOP.

Again, if anything, they could possibly release yet another compilation that includes 1-4 in one package a la GOW: Saga. But who knows? I'm pretty sure though that MGS4 and MGS HD Collection, in their own right, are done as individual retail SKU's.

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, Silent Hill HD Collection, and Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 (all for PS3) are $17.99 each at all Best Buys. Unconfirmed for 360.

Also, their new return policy is in effect: 15 days to return for regular customers (was 30 days). That also means 15 days to price match. Premier Silver still get 60 days as usual.

If you have a PS3, but are not gamesharing, you're doing it wrong.
Get a $60 game on day one for as low as $10?! :hot:

And can only PM at time of purchase if PMing another retailer. And then 15 days if BBY has the price drop. Silver has 60 days up until April 18th after that even silver only has a 15 day PM window and a 60 day return window.
The quote below is for silver members only:

"As a courtesy, for purchases made between March 3, 2013 and April 18, 2013, Reward Zone Premier Silver customers will receive a 60 day price match period if Best buy lowers a price on a product (online or in-store). The 15 day price match period will apply for purchases made on or after April 19, 2013."

Consensus seems to be it plays better (graphics/frame rate) on the Xbox, but Xbox doesn't have the pressure sensitive controls. Meaning the controls are wonky as the original MGS was built with half pressing in mind (ie sighting gun with half press and firing when full pressed etc).

So toss up if you own both systems. Choose what suits you better.

How does this make GameStop look good?
Because of the 30 days return?

GameStop does NOT price match...
They rarely have sales on NEW titles, sure you can return unopened items in 30 days. (it's worse if compared to 60 days for Silver)
If you spend enough money with GameStop you still return in 30 days....

I still think BestBuy return/PM policy was way too good, It resembled CircuitCity, and we all know what happened to CircuitCity (The Sony Trucks made U turns)

GameStop has never PMed...

Also the 60 day silver return is more for non gaming items.

Don't forget that BBY does have TRE in place and once you return an undisclosed amount, you will be banned from returns for 90 days.

They snagged a sku off their system and did a sku search in my area to all stores within the district. Don't know if that helps anyone or I just got a person that knew what he was doing.
