A listing for Metal Gear Solid V: Definitive has appeared online, leading many to believe that a bundled and polished up package consisting of Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain is on the way.
The listing – for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One – popped up on the Dell website, revealing an October 11 release date and a price tag of $50.
Strangely, the PS4 listing has a picture of a NES as the placeholder image, instead of just being left blank. Could this be another Kojima trick? Is Death Stranding a NES exclusive now?
The answer to both of those questions is no (probably), but it’s interesting to note that a PC listing doesn’t seem to be present – at least for the time being.
Metal Gear Solid V: Definitive surfaced once before back in July on Amazon, but was quickly taken down. Obviously, nothing is guaranteed until Konami confirms it, but it’s looking like a safe bet that such a product exists.
But is the combination of Ground Zeroes, Phantom Pain, and a potential smattering of DLC really enough to rope people in?
Ground Zeroes was infamously short of course, so the prospect of having that attached the ‘main’ Metal Gear Solid V could entice fans who haven’t gotten around to checking either part of Kojima’s final Konami title yet.
