I didn't see this in the weekly ad thread so I don't know if this will apply when the game releases on Tuesday in-store but you can purchase it now to ship since I've been reading that people are gonna buy this collection at MSRP and is good for those who haven't played Rising yet.

 

1 thing I noticed is that on the product page for the Legacy Colection is that it doesn't mention that it comes with the art book that is mentioned on Amazon.com page so I don't know if the book is an Amazon exclusive.

 

Enjoy

Is the artbook packages with the game? From the few screenshots i've seen it looks like one of the mini ones that Atlus throws in with most of their games (ex: Catherine).

 

If it's large + heavy I might order this though. The amazon product details says ~ 9 oz as the shipping weight but they are wrong half the time.

The artbook is packaged with the game in a slipcover.

Mine shipped from amazon tonight or I'd probably have done this. Oh well. It's not THAT good of a deal, but still solid. Heh, solid...like, Metal Gear Sol-oh I can't do it.

 

That said I've got a big backlog. Still gotta finish The Last of Us and god of war ascension as well as a few HD collections and PS+ titles. I forsee this being 15-20 in the near future.

Pretty good deal, I'd bite if I hadnt got every game in the collection for way less than its msrp already. I want to finish the DLC for Revengeance though, pissed that those trophies pushed me out of 100% completion

I could see it getting to $15-20 but WITHOUT the artbook or graphic novel included. I just feel this artbook is a The Last Story-ish 1st printing and once they decide to drop the price that it will only have the game without the extras.

Once the 1st print has been sold out, the next print will probably not include the art book. So this is the best chance to get this if u have the slightest interest in the whole bundle.

Oh I'm referring to MG:R, as I said earlier my amazon copy shipped already. I'm a HUGE Metal Gear Solid fan and I had to have this. I preordered a long time ago in case this happened to be a rare item one day lol.

Cancelled my newegg and will consider this one. Has anybody preorder from GameStop? It has the limited MSG double sided poster like zone of Enders, just found out about right now, but might get stiff for the poster though.

Edit: Thanks for the heads up on the poster, I might cancel my newegg order, too. Need to check if my local GS even have the posters first.

What's funny? Zone of Enders poster was pretty limited, none of my stores in the region got it.

Thanks for this, cancelled my $43 newegg preorder. The artbook doesn't really look like it's worth it even if they do stop including it after a price drop. Just going to wait for $20-ish.

This collection is not really worth the price imo, as MGS: HD collection already has most of these games. Especially if you already have that and including MGS 4. 

 

MGS HD collection also just got a reprint it seems.

IMO, not worth it as Rising isn't all that good. It pales in comparison, especially next to the 5 games included with the Legacy set

Yeah, cancelled my $43 newegg preorder as well and will wait until it hits the $20 range like a bunch of other collections have. Seems like everything is on-disc so it should be a good candidate for a used/pre-owned purchase somewhere down the road.  Metal Gear Solid 1 and Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions via included voucher codes.
