    On March 20th the highly-anticipated and quite controversial sequel to the Metal Gear Solid franchise, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, will slither onto our last and current gen systems, and to sweeten the deal, PlayStation Blog Europe has announced a pretty interesting promotion.​
    Anyone who pre-orders Metal Gear Solid V for the PS3 on PSN will also receive a digital copy of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD completely free of charge. That's hitting... two snakes... with one stone! Yeah, that sounds about right.​
    The promotion lasts until the 20th of March (obviously), so if you plan on getting the game, now would be the best time to order it.​

    So they're using Peace Walker as a peace offer?

    I guess they're trying their damnedest not to appear like Snake's in the grass.

    Here's for hoping that this pre-order bonus isn't just snake oil and will help the game sell well.

    It won't because Peace Walker was in both the HD collection and the Legacy Collection.

    Well, I have HD Collection for the PSVita and unfortunately the game wasn't featured in it, so I'm quite happy with this free gift. :P In fact, this made the difference between me buying the game and me pre-ordering it.

    2 weeks ago I bought a PS3 with Metal Gear Rising and Legacy Collection.
    I literaly have all relevant titles (expect for portable ops) so this offer isn't that much interesting.
    I'll buy it anyway.

    Weird, I didn't know they made the HD collection for the Vita and I didn't know it was missing Peace Walker, lol

    They figured that Peace Walker is available on the PSP and the Vita is compatible anyways so what's the point. This is why I'm missing the HD release, which is a shame.

    Well, that makes sense, it is a good deal for those who missed out on it, then.

    It would of made more sense to include Solid Snake as a bonus.

    Whadyamean? Metal Gear Solid or the MSX titles?
    Actually including Peace Walker makes more sense because Ground Zeroes starts where Peace Walker ends (one year after the events of Peace Walker) and many characters you'll see in Ground Zeroes were introduced in Peace Walker.

    I thought I made it clear with the [EUR] tag on the thread and plastering PlayStation Blog Europe all over the place - this promotion is only for European PSN users. Sorry for the inconvenience if you ended up buying the game specifically because of the article.

    Yes, this offer was only for Europe, hence the Europe tag in the thread. I'm glad that you're not upset, in hindsight, perhaps I should've stressed that more. Enjoy the game! :)

    PS: Not writing in caps all the time would be a good idea. In Internet speak it means that you're yelling. :P
