About this deal

Found this on the 360 Marketplace after having a browse through the Trueachievements sales page, seems a very good price for a well reviewed game. Never played a Metal Gear in the past due to mostly gaming on Xbox or Nintendo consoles but may have to give this a go...
Please note: This is also available via the 360 dashboard, which may be preferable if you would rather use credit than pay with a card.

Following the prologue METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES, METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN concludes the METAL GEAR SOLID V experience by following the story of the protagonist of the series, Big Boss (a.k.a. Snake). The METAL GEAR SOLID V experience is Creator and Director Hideo Kojima's first time incorporating open world gameplay to the groundbreaking METAL GEAR franchise.

The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan has brought a new edge to the Cold War, and in 1984, a one-eyed man with a prosthetic arm appears in the country. Those who know him call him Snake; the legendary mercenary who was once swept from the stage of history and left in a coma by American private intelligence network Cipher. Snake is accompanied by Ocelot, an old friend who saved him from attack when he finally awoke.

Now, Snake's former partner Kazuhira Miller is being held by the Soviet forces in Afghanistan. Snake must undertake a solo mission to rescue Miller and prove to the world that the legendary mercenary is not dead and gone. That first step will lead to a path of vengeance against the very Cipher that slaughtered so many of Snake's men, and to a battle that will embroil the whole world.What started in Ground Zeroes must finish with "V".Taking place nine years after the events of MGSV: Ground Zeroes and the fall of Mother Base, Snake a.k.a. Big Boss, awakes from a nine year coma.

The game resumes the story in 1984, with the Cold War still as the backdrop, which continues to shape a global crisis. Snake's journey takes him into a world where he is driven by a need for revenge and the pursuit of a shadow group, XOF. The METAL GEAR SOLID development team continues to ambitiously explore mature themes such as the psychology of warfare and the atrocities that result from those that engage in its vicious cycle.

    Treat yourself to the Xbox one version for a tenner.
    IMO the 360 version is just fine for less than half the cost.

    Also, different consoles. So, depends where you want to play, as from what I can tell, the 360 version isn't playable on One or Series consoles. (edited)

    Does this even work on xbox one and above? It's not on the backwards compatible list.
    And If I remember right its only 30fps on the 360.
    You're right. Apparently not. According to a quick Google the One version plays on Series, but the 360 version doesn't play on One or Series consoles.
