The internal storage will also have the "!" alert sound effect and four wallpapers. A leather case for the device will also be included. Unfortunately, It is priced at 140,000 Yen (around $1,140), which may be a bit steep.

A second version of the Walkman that has just 32 GB is also available at a much cheaper price point. This only has Quiet's Theme and Sins of the Father included on it, and is priced at 28,000 Yen (around $230).

The Sony Xperia Z3 and Z4 tablets, meanwhile, are available for 59,600 (around $450) and 84,000 (around $680) Yen respectively. These include a Metal Gear Solid 5 case, a pre-installed wallpaper, Quiet's Theme and Sins of the Father on the storage, a digital art book, and a 1,000 Yen coupon to purchase the Metal Gear Solid novels.

All of these products will go on sale on September 2, except for the NW-XZ2 Walkman, which goes on sale at the end of September.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain launches on September 1 for PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. It will have a competitive online component called Metal Gear Online, but that mode won't be available until October 6 on consoles and January 2016 on PC.

Konami has announced that PC owners will be getting a variety of bonuses. If you preorder the game on Steam, you will receive Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for free. All owners of the game on Steam will also receive a documentary, behind-the-scenes footage, and some extra in-game items.

Metal Gear Online, meanwhile, will be released on October 6 on consoles and sometime in January 2016 on PC. The delay is similar to what happened with the 2013 release of Grand Theft Auto V. It took two weeks after the game's launch before GTA Online was available for players.
