It’s essentially the game (of course), a specialized packaging created by series artist Yoji Shinkawa, and a 248 page exclusive “The Art of Metal Gear Solid” artbook.
The price? A whopping $79.99 according to Amazon. That’s awfully a lot considering that most Limited Editions — especially the ones that are just simply attached with an artbook — would cost probably 10-20 bucks higher than the standard MSRP.
Personally, I’m still undecided if I’m going to nab this as soon as it comes out. That’s mainly because (A) there’s a lot of games that are coming out this November. In short– my wallet’s going to receive a lot of beating, no shit. And (B) repeat letter A and keep reminding in your head also about “time”, schedules and so forth.
Plus I’m also sucker when it comes to artbooks… especially if it’s by someone like Yoji Shinkawa.
