Metal Gear Solid HD collection Limited Edition PS3 £34.95 @ Zavvi

73
Found 14th May 2012
Been waiting for weeks for the PS3 version to drop in price, it's been steadily sitting at £44.95 for the past few months (even checked last night and it was still £44.95!). Cheapest it's ever been on HUKD by the look of things. Zavvi exclusive limited edition.

Picked this up for £31.46 in the end with the single use 10% off codes that Zavvi have been sending out recently to existing customers.

The Xbox version has been £34.95 for weeks, with its inferior steelbook (which I'm told is just a sticker stuck onto a steel case). Anybody else who's been waiting for this to drop, now is the time! It's part of the Mega Monday sale so may be gone tomorrow. If you're looking at this you probably know what it is; large box with steelbook, t-shirt and art book.

you can't get a specific t shirt size????!!

well thats annoying...its going to be a massive one size fits all!

Anyone have a spare 10% off voucher please

A shame that zavvi are STILL sending these out in little more than plastic bags.

I'll wait until it's much less before I cave.

I got mine in a box which then had the box inside that with the collectors edition. Not much chance of damage

Could anyone who has this comment on the art book please? I imagine it is full of varied artwork from concept sketch to final design but would be good to have some feedback thanks

Check out unboxing videos for this on Youtube, they give you some idea of content, and yes, it's concept art, similar I think to past MGS art books.

Hi thanks for that, youtube is blocked at work unfortunately so can't get a proper idea but I am happier if it is concept art rather than just images of the final game like some of the art books are

They are all reasonably sized mediums.

Ive noticed some art is reprinted from previous strategy guides.

If anyone has got a 10% discount code they don't plan of using could you please PM me, thanks.

Reducing it in price twice over 3 days. When I order it this would have to happen.

I used a refferer code to get 5%,off (£1.75) making the total £33.20... the lowest i could get it

You can use mine if you like:
ZV8607141

It will get you 5% off if you are a new customer.

my post hit for 39.95 hit 460, so this should beat it !

Anyone know how 'limited' these are?? I want to buy but am at work so can't do any proper research (hence my art book question earlier)...be gutted if this is a real bargain and they disappear by the time I get home

These are not limited at all. They are just printing as many as they can sell. Annoying really, since they conned thousands into pre-ordering at double this price, by claiming it was limited to 6000 in the UK and 8000 worldwide.

Just typical, I ordered one for £40 with a 10% code over the weekend and now its down to £35.

I'm sure zavvi had a worldwide exclusive at one point and it would come with MGS1 and MGS4, maybe I'm mistaken.

Anyone wanting to sell a standard 360 copy for around 15 feel free to pm me.

This is it - they dropped the MGS4, (& increased the qtys made) and had to honour it with platinum copies of the game.

You are right, it looked a lot better as well. They were supposed to be limited to 3000 worldwide at the time and were going for £400+ on ebay at one point.

Damn. I got it for £40 last month with a 10% voucher. If only I'd waited.

To all the "plastic bag" haters, it was well wrapped and boxed with plenty of those little air bags for padding.

bought it for £40 worth it as i sold the steelbook for £15 on fleabay and kept the normal plastic case and sold the other extras for £17 so ended up costing only £ 8 for the game
so for 35 its a steal

there is an auction on fleabay now of the tshirt and artbook with a bid of £19.99

Ahhhh, I only have a 10% code for The Hut. If anyone has a spare Zavvi code plase PM me Thanks!

Thanks for the tip. Been waiting for it to reach a decent (cheap) price for a while. Used my 10% voucher too.

Bought. Thanks! Heat added! Bada bing bada boom

Thanks for highlighting this. Bought 2 and used FNDD which got £4.95 knocked off.

Great find! Heat added

This is £28 on Amazon.

so this is the same thing that was £400? or did nobody get them copies as i recall it was a silver steelbook, i think supposedly numbered and had 5 msg games that were supposed to be in the bundle.

i bet those people who paid £400 are hanging themselves.

This is the Zavvi exclusive limited edition. Won't be on Amazon.

Just to clear things up:

The Limited Edition for MGS HD was originally listed as for PS3 only with only 4000 to be in production, it would of been presented in a steelbook with a few art cards, a disc copy of MGS4 and a PSN code to download Metal Gear Solid from PSN.

The item listing was then amended as well as an increase in production.

Originally due for release on PS3 only, the zavvi-exclusive Limited … Originally due for release on PS3 only, the zavvi-exclusive Limited Edition version of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is now due for release on both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, and the contents of this (strictly) limited edition have very recently been updated. Each set will now include the following:Copy of MGS HD CollectionVariant MGS HD Collection SteelbookMGS T-Shirt, exclusive to this Limited Edition250 page premium art book showcasing the artwork of Yoji ShinkawaThis Limited Edition is available exclusively from zavvi.com in the UK and Europe. 6,000 copies of the PlayStation 3 version are now available for pre-order on the site, in addition to 4,000 copies of the Xbox 360 version. A total of just 8,000 (PS3) and 5,000 (Xbox 360) units of this edition are being manufactured worldwide, so numbers are strictly limited. Both of these editions have now appeared back on zavvi.com, and are both available for pre-order as of today, while stocks last.If you placed a pre-order for the original PS3 Limited Edition that was announced back in August (and which was unfortunately made unavailable recently) that pre-order will be automatically carried over to secure you a copy of the updated edition.

Furthermore for those who pre-ordered the original listing they were given a Platinum copy of MGS4 to compensate the change.

On release there were issues of how Zavvi despatched it to customers as well as a difference between the Xbox 360 and PS3 content but that's another matter.

Hopefully Zavvi learnt their lesson and will despatch these adequately. Heat added.

So totarry awesome. Just ordered it.

Cheers.

Don't know why people buy these editions with the extra tat. The T-shirt will inevitably be an unwearable size and the art book will get looked at for 20 seconds once and then ditched in a draw.
