Published by Konami
Released in United Kingdom on Jun 12, 2008 at a price of £39.99

The Slipcase Edition of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is exactly the same as the normal version of the game but it comes with a Black cardboard slipcase with a close up image of Snakes face


The Black version was a Europe wide release, however in terms of sealing the UK BBFC version did not come factory sealed.  Certain Euro countries such as Spain came cellophane sealed with a clear tear strip. But no copy exist with a “Playstation 3” tear strip but the Clear Strip version is still a factory seal.


Pre-order bonus:
If you pre-ordered the Black Slipcase Edition you receive an exclusive DVD called Metal Gear Saga Vol. 2, this was only from certain retailers but was Europe wide.


The Black Slip case is a European PAL exclusive.

    All i can say is Damn that console looks pretty cool.
    I can’t wait to get mine, it’s going to top my collection.
    Check out,

    Does any one know if the how many units they will make?
    that it’s a limited edition.

  2. twistedsymphony:
    For the really popular games 500 thousand (half a million) is usually the cut off point. They almost always make enough to cover pre-orders and then some so as long as you’re pre-ordering I wouldn’t worry about not getting one.

    Be sure to send me some pictures when you get yours so I can put them up here for the world to enjoy

  3. Gemini-Phoenix:
    It may also be worth noting that there are regional variations, with the UK release featuring the BBFC certification opposed to the PEGI logo

  4. gurpswoo1:
    **Added Black and White Slipcase edition**

    May have gone overboard with the details

  5. twistedsymphony:
    I would say that the black and white should be separate entries in the database

    they sound like two completely separate editions

    I would list them as (Black Slipcase) and (White Slipcase)

  6. gurpswoo1:
    No problem,

    EDIT: changed to Black and White entries, thanks for tip earlier.

  7. Mike1888:
    Gurps maybe you should also include this. A Black Sleeve signed - ONLY 15 were available for signing at Zavvi! Beautiful. I want it!!!

    Only 5 were signed by all 3.

    The other 10 were signed by just Shinkawa and Kojima

  8. gurpswoo1:
    Nice will add to description after a quick check.

It won?t feature any new in-game content, but it does come with an exclusive double-sided poster by Yoji Shinkawa. The 25th Anniversary edition of Metal Gear Solid 4 will be released in Europe on November 29 for the PlayStation 3.

  10. Twisted:
    i wish they would of repackaged it in some fancy digipack along with some art cards or glossy in game art pics...and maybe a new intro screen and some 25th anniversary decals etc...something to make it special in your hands so you can display it properly..instead of some fold out poster and everyday gamecase.
