    I just put 10USD for my preorder @ Gamestop, I'm an avid MGS fan, but I haven't finished MGS3, still, I'll probably catch up with the story with the DVD as I'm getting the special edition.

    Does anyone else put a preorder? [​IMG]

    I plan on getting it, once i have a PS3, I'm hoping to have saved up $500 for the bundle.

    Do you think that is wise to pre-order from an ebay seller that have +13000 positive feedbacks?
    (the shipping is really cheaper, comparing with gamestop)

    Once Amazon.com puts the bundle up for pre-order, I'll order it. They're taking their time though (and showing a release date of June 30,) so I may need another no tax + free shipping alternative just in case Amazon doesn't come through.

    I've had only good experiences pre-ordering from e-bay sellers. With over 13,000 pos feedbacks, you should be ok.

    I was reading, the Limited Edition only has an extra BluRay with behind the scenes and the soundtrack.... I don't know if that and different artwork on the package is worth it.... I mean the LE is 85USD!!!
    Mmm... what do you guys think, regular or limited edition?

    There is a different artwork (comes in a box, etc), but the behind the scenes disc you can get preordering the standard edition from some places.

    About the soundtrack... only preordering the special edition, I belive.

    I was thinking about preorder the special edition too, but US85.00 plus US65.00 shipping, not gonna happen! [​IMG]

    That's the internation shipping at Game Stop, the only place I found where I could put an (international) preorder for the special edition.

    i personally wouldnt get the special edition, because theyre just going to come out with a better extended version of it next year. but thats not going to stop me from buying the ps3 bundle of it.

    True, and the behind-the-scenes videos are going to be @ThePirate bay that same day, but call it a "Thank you" for Konami. I seriously love that series.

    yep, just like substance and subsistence so i would recommend anyone to wait and not buy the special edition, the pal uk special ed version is like £80 over here, that would be around $156 dollars....

    I ordered the special edition, mainly for the supplements. I don't have a PS3 and now that they are taking away PS2 support* I doubt I will get one, unless the price comes down...alot. $500 for something I will use for one game, I think I will just burrow someone elses.

    *The newer models apparently only have limited PS2 and PSX support. I know most of the games I play won't be supported. Same thing with the XBOX360. VIdeo games hardware is not user friendly, the customer is forced to update and anything over a few years old is no longer playabe. This is the same reason I don't buy any mutliplayer focused games, unless I know they will last. e.g. TFC, UT, D2.

    PS1 support is the same for all PS3 models.

    So review scores are coming in, what do you guys think? I don't want to read the reviews myself since I don't want to be spoiled about anything at all.

    IGN UK: 9.9
    Eurogamer: 8 (supposedly a 9 before the edit)
    Edge: 8
    Gamepro: 5/5
    OPM UK: 10

    My copy is hopefully coming within the week, can't wait! Already finished all the Metal Gears about a week ago. [​IMG]
