Collector's edition of Metal Gear Solid V missing some DLC codes?

Seems that some Collector's Editions have been absent from the box itself.

Some fans who preordered Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on the PS4 found that their purchases were lacking the codes for key DLC content.

Multiple reports on Reddit and NeoGAF claim that some Metal Gear Solid fans found the promised DLC codes for Day One DLC and bonus exclusive Collector’s Edition content codes were not included with the entire package.

Luckily. Konami quickly swooped in and cleared up the issue via Facebook, confirming that the codes aren’t included with the physical package. The codes are apparently given either on the receipt for the physical purchase or via email.

The codes will be distributed in either format if the PS4 copy was pre-ordered from Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop, Target, Toys R Us, Walmart, EB Games or Game Planet. If anyone has not received the codes, you can contact Konami customer support to clarify the situation.

It’s a good thing that Konami was quick on the trigger with remedying this issue, so this was only a simple short-term scare. MGS V: The Phantom Pain has received amazing reviews from multiple gaming websites and is hitting shelves on September 1st.


I'm a recent graduate from Kenyon College with an English Major, emphasis in Creative Writing, and a History Minor. I love video games passionately. I love most games, a little iffy on Sport Games. The first game I can remember playing was either Goldeneye on the Nintendo 64 or the first Harry Potter computer game. The first console/gaming device I can remember owning was a Gameboy Advance and I loved my Pokemon Silver game to death.
