Just noticed Gamestop has a listing for a collector's edition of Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker for the PSP. It's $49.99 and comes with an artbook

Works with the 25off code if you have $100 worth of stuff to buy.

I already pre-ordered on Amazon, but I might go for this. But a picture would be nice :p

Is this a GS exclusive?

Despite being a big MGS fan, I think this is a big pass for me. The MGS4 LE was awful, and all this seems to have is an artbook.

I guess this all depends on how nice this art book is, but $10 more for it isn't bad.

Yeah, I'm not sure how good a deal it is, but it is only $10 more and fans of the series may like so I figured I'd post it here. I haven't seen it on Amazon yet so it's possible it's a GS exclusive like the MGS4 LE was.

I am hoping for $10 more they will throw in the soundtrack along with the artbook at least which seems to be the norm for LE sets.

They also need to throw in the bandana with the collector's edition...

yeah there is a gamestop near me that will give me leftover preorder gifts for free after a few weeks of the game being out. So a single artbook isnt worth the bother.

I would assume the artbook wil be pack with the game.

That's what I am thinking too since it is a collector's edition set and not a pre-order bonus item. Most PSP CE or LE games normally come in a cardboard box and have the UMD box case inside along with a soundtrack and sometimes something extra, an art book in this case. Or the artbook could be taking up the slot they would normally put the soundtrack which is why there isn't one listed with this.

Hopefully Konami will put some images up of this package, art books really vary in quality (anywhere from a small pamphlet to an actual book). Would be nice if it had some special tin case as well.

Considering artbooks are usually given out as free bonuses this better be one hell of an artbook for an extra 10 bucks.

Thanks for mentioning the 25off code, I certainly needed it.

No, this is not a GS exclusive and no, the art book is not a bonus that you can obtain w/o buying the game (it's not a promotional item). The art book is packed with the game (hence Collector Edition), we do need some pictures, which will give us some idea how "fancy" is the art book.

p.s. somebody should compile a super duper MGS PW thread. All of the deals and bonus items...

You say the CE isn't GS exclusive Serpentor, but do you have a source for that info, because I can't seem to find the CE for pre-order at any other locations, nor have I seen any specific mention that it will be sold everywhere.

This is the second time I've heard about that bandana now... does that come with GS preorders or is it from someplace else?

I work at Gamestop and the bandana is a pre-order item. It showed up a few days ago in our Go Stores list.

Its GS only but they only list the bandana with the regular edition of the game. Go to their website and they do not have any pre order bonus stuff listed for the CE.

Sorry, maybe my words are bit too strong, claiming that the MGS PW CE is not a GS exclusive (there's no concrete evidence at this point). I base my logic on the fact that GS is getting the Big Boss Bundle as an exclusive. Hence, making the PW CE another GS exclusive doesn't make much sense... Making people buying BOTH exclusives from the same retail is really pushing people to the edge, even collectors.

Again, give it more time, i'm itching to know the size of the art book in the PW CE myself...

I'll wait to see the worthiness of the artbook and CE packaging before pulling the trigger. The MGS4 LE was rather a letdown.

It's worth mentioning that the LE now lists the bandana as a preorder bonus.

They should really post pictures quick, because this could be one of the lamest CE's in recent memory if it's just an artbook (should be a preorder bonus) and a bandana. I mean, who in the world would actually wear a metal gear bandana for....well, anything other than cosplay?

Dude, it's a Snake bandana. That's like the most badass thing ever made. I'd wear it every chance I get. I just hope it comes with the Big Boss PSP bundle so I can get it.

Hey, you're talking to a guy who actually owns the same shirt that his Xbox Live Avatar wears. I'm not above unashamed game related geekery. But, I couldn't muster the courage to wear a MG bandana. You, my good CAG, would qualify as badass, then! :bow:

How was it a letdown? It had a huge HD documentary, a sountrack, and a great case.

A little expensive, sure, but it had some great content save for no artbook.

damn it, I'm biting. Suppose I buy two games with separate release dates, do they ship at the same time, or at the time they come out?

Does the bandanna come with infinite ammo?

GameStop updated the page with boxart, and info about the artbook. 35-40 pages. Kinda weak for $10 imo. I've gotten free ones that were bigger.
