    I just got it, suggested by{M}artin I'm gonna finish 3 before playing 4.
    But those cheap ass Konami guys, it includes Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance and Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence but only disc 1. WTF! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Still, it was a pretty good deal.
    Has anyone got it?

    Thanks, I totally forgot bout this. I'm gonna pick it up, since I don't care too much about disc 2 extras (friend has them).

    its in english
    they released a collectors edition here, came in a red package

    and came with MGS3 Subsistance, a bonus 3rd disk called Existence (it was a the whole game in movie format, caught from all different angels, so you can actually watch MGS3 as a movie)

    and a forth disk, MGS Saga Vol.1
    a retrospect on the MGS series

    IIRC...

    Original Snake Eater is one disc.
    Subsistence is two.
    The rare limited edition of Subsistence is three, and MGS Saga Vol. 1 was even rarer due to only being offered as a bonus for pre-ordering.

    I could be wrong about all of this?

    For those of you in this world that truly appreciate the greatness that is the Metal Gear series, here's a little gem I just dug up and thought I'd share. Behold, the OtaClock DS. It a homebrew application that simulates Otacon's clock on your DS. It's awesome looking, and when it goes off, you have to answer a different math question to get it to stop! Thanks to madcat1990 for developing such a cool, useful application! Enjoy!

    I had no idea about it. Sound amazing.
    Playing disc one right now. I always thought that Snake Eater was a little harder than the previous two.
