The Platinum Games-developed action game Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be sold at the reduced price of $30 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 beginning today, Konami announced this afternoon.

Included at the new, lower price point is the Jetstream and Blade Wolf downloadable content at no extra cost, Konami said. Players will be prompted to download the content from Xbox Live or PlayStation Network when they boot up their games.

The Jetstream DLC is a multi-hour expansion that features Samuel Rodriguez as a playable character. Meanwhile, the Blade Wolf DLC is a side story where gamers play as LQ-84i.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was released for Xbox 360 and PS3 in February. A PC version is "looking good," according to series creator Hideo Kojima, but does not yet have a release date.

Everybody already said, probably.

But it's free for PSN+ member. I'm playing it (not rubbing, but come on, for free), and it's a blast.

It's a Vanquish with swords.

But 30 bucks it still too much money for a game so short.

But I just bought it on sale for around just over 30 last month with no dlc...

Digital console sale prices are a joke and a clear indication of the draconian, anti consumer, cloud gaming, 100% control future. I got this game for 12 Euro at my local HMV. When it all goes digital, say goodbye to competitive game sales. They can charge whatever they like.

<< LINK REMOVED >> From a PC gamer, no need. The action is so frantic in PS3 that you'll not even notice, since the game doesn't stutter (like DMC in consoles, unfortunately).

I was looking forward to this game at one point but they've taken so long to release it on PC I guess I'll just grab it for 3 dollars on a steam summer sale or something, wouldn't even pay 30 dollars for it at this point.

You must have missed the point where he didn't mention ps3 at all, and that he is possibly just a pc gamer and so Steam would be a great idea for him to purchase the game on at a reduced cost.

And yeah, it's never worth 30 dollars. Can hardly call it a metal gear game really.

@yoda101280 Ahhh, self-entitled PC gamers.

We meet again.

<< LINK REMOVED >> There's nothing entitled about what I said, this game came out almost a year ago and there was a PC version planned at that time that still isn't out. It is not entitled to actually expect a port within a year. Beyond that your comment is silly so I won't even bother addressing it.

I will save you 30$. this game is crap! Cheesy japaense crap!

The ending is so stupid and ridiculous. "Stupid American Evil Politician" ala SUPER SUMO WRESTLER? WHAT?! Metal Gear me thinks not.

I don't think they could've come up with more turbo f@ggot-looking main character.

Anime features, white hair, fat hips, and heels..... Ewwwwwwwww.

Nice deal, too bad it doesn't apply to ALL DLC, and the pre-order stuff is still there to stay. I with this comes to Europe.

Waiting for the best of the best platform release, kojima. **PC** where is it? I'm joking take your time. I hope to see major differences from consoles. a better game that is.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Oh yeah certainly, keep your fingers crossed, and maybe it won't be a horrible port, just a bad one.

I thought this game was very enjoyable, especially some of the boss fights. If only Platinum Games had the game from the start, then maybe it could've turned out even better.

They were only given 14 months to finish it.

<< LINK REMOVED >> your joking right? work on Metal Gear revengence began sometime before 2009 , where as cod ghosts isn't even out yet and was only developed about a year ago. all COD games are made in a year's time cause they rehash everything including the graphics engine with a few minor additions... ghosts is more of a rip off of the dog thing.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> I think they get two years, in fact, what with them alternating Infinity Ward CoD's and Treyarch CoD's. If IW releases a CoD in 2011, then Treyarch releases in 2012 and then IW releases another in 2013. The result might still feel rehashed and same-same, but they don't just get one year.

When it gets released for PC, will definitely pick it up..., you know, if it actually does end up getting released in the end and not fade into obscurity.

<< LINK REMOVED >>quiet frankly you DONT understand MGS universe... MGR is consider like a spin-off series even though the story takes place after MGS4... just because you dont understand it does not mean it ruins the series. So go back to your corner and hide and ohhh please do shut up !

Even though this wasnt the average Metal Gear game it was still really fun to play. $30 is a great deal for this game.
