Though I only ordered 1 for my collection, I do wonder how I will feel if I see this for less than $40 within a couple months. :lol:

I got my PM for the difference and it should be here tomorrow for me.

 

They PM'ed the new price since it shipped after the price dropped.  It's just a hair over $1 saved, but hey, a dollar is a dollar. 

Same here, couldn't let them charge me more since I don't even have it on hand yet.

I bought one to convert amazon credit to cash, but if I can't get $55 for it I'll definitely be cracking this thing open and playing every single MGS. I've only previously played MGS2.

People were paying $110+ for this? Let's do the math (using Gamestop Used Game prices as our base):

 

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection - $30

Metal Gear Solid 4 - $7

Metal Gear Solid $10 (PSN)

 

Total: $47

 

So essentially, People were paying $63 for MG1, MG2, MGVRM, and an art book?... I'll never truly understand Metal Gear fans

MG1 and MG2 were included in the older HD Collection.

(Some) MGS fans also paid 30 bucks for a glorified demo. xD

It's not a demo. It's a DLC collection. It's obvious you haven't played it.

That's why he said MG1, not MGS1.

Let's add anyone who is not a socialist and profits at all. Let's hope they all get screwed over as well.

Haha. Suck it, reseller.

This is what happens when bad people take good deals from people instead of working.

As for someone who has not played any Metal Gear games (I know strange right?) I find my purchase of 49.99 without tax reasonable reprint or not this is a nice collection for those who want to get into the series.

I keep going back and fourth on this.  I own every single game in one form or another (GCube, PSP, PS1/2/3)  but have been a big MGS fan forever.  I guess if it his $30 I'd be more serious but at full price meh.  You can likely go to a decent used game store or even pawn shop and pick up each game for $10 or less; it's not like mgs 1, 2, 3, or 4 weren't printed like money at their respective releases.

We got a complete metal gear collection and art book for $49... How did we get scammed? I'm very happy with my purchase.

Same for me though in the end I ended up buying it... short story time:

 

I own the HD collection, still sealed in my backlog. At most kmarts I still see copies of the Legacy collection sitting around, even on sale for under $30. After all of this "whargarbll omg this iz rare" I was concerned I may never get my hands on the Legacy set, I called the kmarts I knew had them in stock and all told me they were sold out a couple weeks back, one rep specifically recalled the day he sold the sole copy vividly to me, so I trusted him.

 

Last week I visit one that originally had it in stock to browse for something else, and sure enough what do I see but a copy of Legacy collection sitting in the glass case. I'm happy yet angered two-fold... I was misinformed, and now because of that the sale is over as well. I spoke with a manager to let them know that the track record of this store is at 0% of correct info when I called in (this isn't the first time I've been lied to) and they offered to give me last week's sale price plus a few bucks off as well, so in the end they charged me $20 plus tax for the Legacy collection.

I "take good deals from people" all the time. This was never a good deal though, that's why I didn't buy any...

Same here. I felt compelled to because I own all the metal gear games and the collector/limited edition versions. I hated to have a hole in the collection.

I would snatch this up in a heartbeat if it were a full sized artbook

 

 

Bah the more I sit and think the more I want this though. I haven't gotten any of the collections and would love to have this. I just wish I knew if it were a reprint or not. $45 is a great deal but I know I won't touch it for a long while and if it is a reprint I am sure I could get it for <$30 in the future easily....
