Special Edition PS4 for Metal Gear Solid 5 Announced

An Metal Gear Solid 5-themed PS4 will be released in Asia that replicates Snake's bionic arm and gun.

Sony and Konami will be making a special edition of the PS4 that will be available in Asia, themed for the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Even for those that aren't huge MGS fans, it's hard to deny that it's an eye-catching version of the PS4. The color of the console is based on Snake's bionic arm. It's got all the right hues, down to the golden connector at the bottom of the arm.

For comparison's sake, here's a look at the replica of the arm:

The DualShock 4 is similar to the color of Snake's gun. It also includes the "Diamond Dogs" logo located at the bottom right handle of the peripheral.

Can't wait to get your hands on a special PS4 for the upcoming MGSV release, right? Well, here's the bad news: There's no word about a western release, and it looks to be targeted solely to the Asian markets.

A price hasn't been announced, but the harder challenge would be to actually try and import one of these great looking consoles. Hopefully they'll bring a few over to the North American and European markets.

MGSV is set to release September 1st on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. It will be released on Steam for PC two weeks later.
