Extremely limited MGS4 bundle announced for NA

After a whirlwind of rumors and speculation regarding the limited edition PS3/MGS4 bundle and its potential appearance in North America, Konami officially announced the release as well as details on this "highly limited" bundle.

The bundle will retail for $599.99 and will come packaged with a Gun Metal Gray PLAYSTATION 3 system with a 40GB hard drive, Gun Metal Gray DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller, and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Limited Edition game. The press release revealed that, "The bundle will be exclusively available at Konami’s website,, for a MSRP of $599.99. Pre-sell for the bundle begins on May 19, 2008, and limited supplies are available."

If you haven’t picked up a PS3 yet or you’re just a huge Metal Gear Solid fan and you feel this is a necessity, then keep your browser ready for May 19 when the preorder goes on sale. There will also be a regular edition PS3 bundle with MGS4 which will be released in stores but that bundle will not be including the gunmetal PS3 or DualShock controller. This limited edition bundle will ship on June 12, 2008, the release date of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
