Konami has said that there are no plans to release the limited edition gun metal grey PlayStation 3 console in the UK.
When asked on the possibility of the limited edition hardware bundle - which is currently available to consumers in North America - coming to UK shores, a spokesperson told Eurogamer, "Nope, sadly not.”
“The only bundle we are doing is the Play.com special edition with figurine."
As previously reported, the Play.com bundle consists of the official soundtrack CD, a Solid Snake action figure, and a special “Making Of” documentary Blu-ray disc.
However, new adopters keen on snapping up Metal Gear Solid 4 may be interested to learn that Sony will be offering up a PS3 console, a copy of the game and a Sixaxis pad for EUR 439, although a spokesperson was keen to note, "I believe we will only be getting the standard black PS3 with the MGS4 bundle."
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is due out on June 12.
