We predicted it a few days ago, and it actually happened: Sony Computer Entertainment just announced a limited edition PS4 for Japan named PS4 x Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Fox Edition. The bundle includes a custom PS4, a DualShock 4, and the appropriate version of the game.
The PS4 included in the bundle is your usual CHU-1000AB01 with a 500 gb hard disk, but it comes with a custom FOX emblem and the logo of the game in gold. It costs 46,980 yen ($462), and it can be purchased directly at Sony’s Japanese store here.
Game Director Hideo Kojima himself commented on Twitter (also sharing the pictures that can be seen at the bottom of the post and giving more details on the logo), and yes, he really wrote “love call:”
When I had dinner with Sony Computer Entertainment’s Hiroshi Kawano last year he said “Indeed, we really want a Metal Gear limited edition PS4, don’t you think?” Due to that love call, we started to move in a hurry. Since we didn’t have much time, the announcement came at the last moment. I apologize. This picture shows samples, not the retail version.
This also shows the samples: we got prototypes made in various ways, but in the end we selected the laser etched version for the “FOX” logo in the middle.
At the moment there are no news about a possible release of the same bundle in the west, but you can see it portrayed in all its glory above and below.
My only regret is that it doesn’t come in gun metal like the PS3 bundled with Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of The Patriots. That said, we’ll keep you updated if any relevant news on a possible edition for North America or Europe will surface.
