OK, this is as far as some of us are understanding it.
A) They COULD be making whole new 80GB systems to release a MGS4 pack, however that doesn't really make much sense as they wouldn't have discontinued the 80GB version just to start producing them again.
B) They discontinued the 80GB version. However just because they discontinued them, it doesn't mean they sold them all. So what they will do is collect all the 80GB versions that are still unsold and just bundle them with MGS4 and release it as a pack.
B is the one me and Mike are getting at. There is no definitive word until Sony says so, but that will be the more likely situation.
It makes perfect sense as MGS4 will be a system seller for Sony. Sony knew this all along that MGS4, GT(5?), and GTA (but not exclusive anymore) were all going to be system sellers.
so why not shift the unsold systems by bundling them with a game that will sift them. I don't really know how to put it other than that
