Metal Gear Solid 4 Premium Pack - Preorder

Suppliers in Japan started preorders for the MGS4 games last week but it was only last night that they started accepting reservations for the MGS4 Premium Pack which includes a special "Hagane" or steel-tinted version of the Playstation 3 40GB console and a matching Dual Shock 3 controller. The Premium Pack bundle includes the following items:

» PS3 Hagane 40GB Console (Note: multi-voltage 100V to 240V)
» Metal Gear Solid 4 Special Edition Game (two-disc set)
» PS3 Hagane Dual Shock 3 Controller
» Bonus MGS4 "Making Of" Blu-Ray Bonus Disc

The top side of each Hagane console is imprinted with the following text:
"Metal Gear Solid 4 Limited Edition" which is located below the Playstation 3 mark on the top of the unit.

Konamistyle is already sold out of the bundles but NCS is able to guarantee preorders that are submitted today. Based solely on the three preorder offers we've received thus far, vendors will be charging a premium for the bundle. The official retail price in Japan is set at JPY51,800 but NCS will be charging US$689 for the bundle. Since we're fairly certain that the U.S. dollar will hold up against both the Japanese Yen and the Euro for the remainder of the year, we don't expect any price volatility based on currency fluctuations.

Preorders are welcome to ship on June 12, 2008. Reservations for the MGS4 Special Edition game and Regular Edition game are also welcome.
