The Metal Gear Solid Ultimate HD Collection comes in a steel book case, art cards, MGS4 and a download for MGS1. That by itself is a really nice collection as it pretty much is the whole of Metal Gear Solid in one box. The best thing about this though is that is actully limited, there are only going to be 4000 of these things worldwide. Prices are really weird right now, some have a starting price of £400 where some have a starting price of £70.

£400 really doesn't seem like appropriate pricing considering the individual value of those things.

@AlisterCat: Yeah, but, STEEL BOOK CASE. That's gotta be worth at least, what, $900?

@AlisterCat: Its the fact that there is only going to be 4000 made, but even thats quite a high price.

I see no value in such a thing. :/

Who's idea was it to make MGS1 a freaking download code? Re-print the game specifically for this "limited" collection. Lazy chumps.

That 'cause they were sold-out 2 hours after the announcement, in 24th of August, if I'm not mistaken.

4000 sounds like a lot. Didn't Nike just make 1500 of those shoes?

THAT'S limited.

@I_smell: Some bands are releasing their albums only on 500 12" vinyl records signed by the band members. Now *THAT* is limited release.
