    Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Gets a Price Reduction

    The Metal Gear Solid series has spanned all 4 generations of Sony consoles, pushing for terrific visuals and a rather complex story. When creator Hideo Kojima announced that Metal Gear Solid V would be two games, we were finally shown Ground Zeroes, a "prequel" to The Phantom Pain. By playing through Ground Zeroes, players will be given early access to items and locations once The Phantom Pain rolls out, though no release date has been given.



    Publisher Konami had planned to sell the retail copy of Ground Zeroes for $40 in the US with the digital version sitting at $30. When word got out that the game only had one main story mission that lasts around two hours, people questioned if the game was worth the cost of admission. Kojima has reassured gamers that while the main story can be completed in such a short time, there are numerous side quests to complete as well that add to the game's replay-ability. Perhaps in response to the criticism, Konami has officially lowered the retail cost for current-gen consoles to $30 (matching that of the PS3 and X360) , and the PS3 digital version to $20. Ground Zeroes is set for a March 18 release in North America.

    Konami has officially lowered the retail cost to $30, and the PS3 digital version to $20.
    I had this on pre-order and it was still going for $30, but if the digital version's $20, then I might as well go for it

    Yes, I was mistaken in the OP. The reduction to $30 was for the PS4 and X1, so they are now the same price as last gen's version

    I'm kind of curious how saves will work if I upgrade to PS4 between this and The Phantom Pain.

    I don't know why this price reduction was so late to be announce. In Asia they had already announce it 2 months ago. A month ago people were raging about the price because the game was short, I at that time knew that the price is not going to be $60.

    Guess they're trying to sway whoever has doubts about buying the game due to its length. Whatever the reason, though, us consumers win with this price reduction.

    So did the rest of the world, the game was never going to be $60.

    People clearly don't want the side content. What don't you get?

    What is this?...a PSN game?...I don't like the sound of this...I'm always up for some side-missions but this game sure won't do justice to MGS series.Since the announcement,this just keeps on getting worse and worse.Huge fan of MGS here since PS1 but MGS is going in the wrong direction but oh well leave it to Kojima to fuck everything up....if its to be this way then Kojima should've made Ground Zeroes a DLC for Phantom Pain.

    lol this guy.

    game gets a price drop: "ooh this just keeps getting worse and worse :["

    Cmon dude. They're going above and beyond to turn a great game (albeit a disappointment to many due to lack of story content) into something more appetizing for the whole fanbase.

    It's not a question of price, it's a question of value. Asking people to fork out $15 an hour for a 2 hour game is fucking outrageous!

    $20 is more palatable but still overpriced.
