In the height of hype pre-orders for the Metal Gear Solid 4 80 GB PlayStation 3 bundle may have been responsible for Amazon’s crash. Now you can get an even more limited package direct from Konami with less fuss. The key hardware difference is you get a 40GB PlayStation 3 with the Limited Edition Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 bundle, which isn’t backwards compatible with PlayStation 2 games. The package contains a Gunmetal Gray console, Gunmetal Gray Dualshock 3 controller, and the two disc special edition of Metal Gear Solid 4. The package will set you back $599.99 plus tax and shipping. The 80 GB Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle costs $499.99 if you can find one. Just for comparison’s sake a vanilla 40GB PS3 and the two disc limited edition version of Metal Gear Solid 4 costs $484.98.
Update: Within hours the bundle went from in stock to gone forever.
