Konami today announced that physical and digital copies of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will sell for $30 each. Previously, boxed copies of Ground Zeroes sold at retail for those platforms carried a price tag of $40, while the downloadable versions have always been $30.

Explaining the price drop, Konami said the new, lower price point will "provide as many people as possible an opportunity to experience" the game, which runs on Kojima Productions' FOX Engine. Today's announcement does not affect the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Ground Zeroes; physical copies will be sold for $30, while digital versions will go for $20.

Ground Zeroes launches on March 18 and is a prequel to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which might not launch until late 2015 or even later.
