That Metal Gear 3DS is Playing Infuriatingly Hard to Get

on January 20, 2012 11:15 AM

Are you jonesing for that gorgeous snakeskin Metal Gear Solid themed 3DS? Good luck with that. You can thank Konami for any future bouts of rage your quest inspires.

The hardware, bundled with Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, is only available through Konami’s online store Konami Style for ¥22,980 (US$299). It gets worse — it’s being sold by raffle to those who register with a Konami ID. So if you don’t win, Konami still gets to add another tally mark to its user pool.

Honestly, this is very unfair. It’s a freaking limited edition 3DS, people will buy it. Why make things this hard? No word yet on whether or not this is because the hardware has limited stock or Konami is just trolling Metal Gear fans.
