Limited edition Metal Gear Solid 5 PS4 in the works?

Cryptic tweets from Hideo Kojima suggest he may be partnering up with Sony for a special collaboration.

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has suggested a limited edition Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes PlayStation 4 bundle, or at least some kind of special collaboration with Sony, is in the works.

After posting images of the various Metal Gear Solid bundles for PlayStation 3 and PSP on Twitter, he said, "After all, I wonder if you want a limited edition?" He followed up this tweet with another that cryptically teased: "[SONY] x [PS4] x [MGS GZ] collaboration initiative is in progress. More information at a later date."

The tweets were posted to Kojima's Japanese Twitter account and translated by DualShockers.

No official announcements have been made regarding a special Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes PS4 bundle, though Kojima has previously spoken very fondly of Sony's new system. Ground Zeroes launches for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 on March 18.

It is a prequel to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which might not release until the end of 2015, according to publisher Konami. Kojima recently revealed that the game originally had an '80s filter on it (The Phantom Pain is set in 1984), but this was removed because it bogged the game down technically.

Another interesting note from Kojima's Twitter account. He recently saw The LEGO Movie and said it "surpassed" Pixar's beloved Toy Story. He says it was so good that he will see the movie (at least) three more times.

My new years resolution is to NEVER buy special, limited, or collectors edition games. Sticking with it.

Hopefully they don't charge more, already too much for a 2 hour game.  Hopefully the game is better than 4, don't want to watch long winded conversations, plus the stealth is kinda weak compared to splinter cell and thief

Seems like a certainty what Kojima's on about. I'd have happily bought a PS4 and MGS V bundle, but I still find there's plenty of fun to be had on PS3 so I'm still in no rush to cough up four-hundred squids.

If it includes David Hayter's voice I'm in. If it's still Kiefer Sutherland forget it.

Kojima's previous statements are starting to make more and more sense now.

Lego Movie surpass Toy Story? LMAO!! Sorry Kojima, you are wrong about that. Lego Movie was good though, but no where on the level of any of the Toy Story movies.

Would be awesome if Kojima did put out something for PS4. Even though MGS5 is coming out on Xbox One and MGS2 Substance came out for Xbox. Metal Gear Solid will always belong on PlayStation in my opinion.

The Gun Metal LE PS3 for MGS4 was pretty kickass. If this is anything like it count me in.

Maybe if the game came FREE with the console... otherwise, getting a DEMO - branded console is the epitome of stupidity,

I'd get a bundle like this. As long as it's reasonably priced.. Need to buy the PS4 soon anyway, and was gonna get ground zeroes. 2 birds 1 stone?

Does it include the prologue? If so, I will definitely get this when it's free on PS+. :)

Of course Kojima is gonna milk Limited edition versions.  He milks everything else.  That's a huge part of the reason I'm not an MGS fan anymore.  Dude has no integrity.

It comes with a MGSV overlay, MGSV wallpaper, Controller, and of course the Ground Zeroes.  Of course all of it disappears via optical camouflage after 2 hours.  (that's 2 hours after it leaves the warehouse so you may already have one and have never known.)

@deadpen I love the collector's editions I've paid for -- LBP2's book ends and sack boy toy and the model car and book set for Gran Turismo 5 were both worth the additional cost.  I wish I'd got the model included with the collector's edition of Last of Us but it was sold out.

@deadpen  what about thief, the limited edition includes exclusive bank heist and is actually cheaper than the normal one on amazon lol.

@Redsyrup I don't understand this hate for Kiefer, I was never a huge fan of David Hayter's voice acting.
