|Konami announced today that the "gun metal gray" special edition PlayStation 3â€”described as being "very, very limited" when confirmed for a stateside releaseâ€”bundled with Metal Gear Solid 4 and a DualShock 3 controller will only be available for purchase from Konami's web site. Priced at $599.99 USD, it will sport 40GB worth of hard drive space in addition to it's unique, flat finish.
Don't confuse it with the regular MGS4 PS3 bundle, which will ring up at $499.99 and comes with an 80GB hard drive. Yes, you're paying $100 for gray pride.
Pre-orders open May 19 at Konami.com. Considering how swimmingly the Metal Gear Online beta sign up process went, we'd suggest having more than one computer at the ready for what may be frantic pre-ordering action.
That's pricey for a non-backward compatible PS3 with a fancy color. But dang, I'd still want one! O_O
