We have something very special for all of you ULTIMATE fans out there! Launching with the game on June 8, you can pick an exclusive limited edition “Big Boss” Pack for METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER, which will be available only at GameStop locations in the U.S. for $199.99 (MSRP). This premium package combines the highly anticipated title from legendary developer Hideo Kojima with a “Camouflage” PSP-3000 system, which was inspired by the Central American setting for the game.

METAL GEAR SOLID PEACE WALKER Big Boss Pack 1

So, what’s in it you ask? The limited-edition “Big Boss” Pack will include the following:

I don’t see how this bundle is alienating the people who bought a PSP Go – if you already have a Go then you don’t need to buy a bundle because you can just download the game from PSN. And even if they released a camo PSP Go, would you really turn around and buy a new system just for the camo? I don’t think so. These bundles are to entice new people to get the PSP. Peacewalker should be a big draw for people, and a cool bundle helps sweeten the deal.

The camo is quite cool. The green one is hideous IMO.
I want a GT PSP in a color change type paint like some show cars do, like blue to red or green to gold. Paints have come a long way, there are some really cool pearl essence and chameleon colors now.

As a huge Metal Gear fan, I may have to buy the Big Boss pack. Even though I already have a PSP-3000.

Love my pspGo, no UMDs to worry with.

I don’t understand all of these PSPGo owners saying “What about us?” – What about you? A new game is releasing and with that a new PSP bundle. Are you entitled to free stuff just because you purchased a Go? No. This is merely to give people a reason to buy a PSP or for people who feel like upgrading to the 3000 because they’re not a fan of the Go.

I’d love to know exactly what you’d like Sony to do for you when you say “WHAT ABOUT US?!” Trust me, I can guarantee MGS: Peace Walker will be released on the PSN the day it is released in stores and THAT is ALL you are entitled to. You wanted digital content, you got it.

I’ve never had a PSP and I’ll probably get the Big Boss bundle from Gamestop.

+ Kantankoras on April 8th, 2010 at 4:08 pm said:

Wait- Are they both available in Canada or only the entertainment pack? Also, will it be on the PSN? I’m thinking about a PSPGo….

+ COMBATCSOLDIER on April 8th, 2010 at 4:10 pm said:

why dont you just release the psp2 lol. Yes your psp sells. However we should get a psp 2 by now.

+ midnightshade on April 8th, 2010 at 4:13 pm said:

Damn… If I didn’t already own a PSP2000 and PSP3000 I would pick this up. I am not getting another psp until the PSP2 comes out though… What would I do with 3 psps?

+ GodOfWar52694 on April 8th, 2010 at 4:14 pm said:

Well, i think its time for me to get a new PSP ( Im afraid my Red God Of War limited editions’ UMD drive is not working very well, and i love that shade of green from the top one :D )

+ johngie on April 8th, 2010 at 4:17 pm said:

I am legitimately regretting standing by Sony and buying a PSPgo right now. Hardly any support, can’t do [DELETED] with your old UMD’s, and now this??? If I hadn’t already spent so much money on downloadable PSP games, I’d ditch my admittedly sleek and sexy go for this mofo

+ isolatebody on April 8th, 2010 at 4:28 pm said:

WOW…it’s not even the PSP Go. I was thinking real hard about this but now I wonder why it wouldn’t be the new PSP ????


68

+ m5h3p on April 8th, 2010 at 4:36 pm said:

probably a dumb question, but there is an ac adapter in the big boss pack? because mine is broken, and a psp that wont turn on isn’t much good… if there isn’t one, i can just get a new one from gamestop at the same time i pick up the bundle.

WOW! Amazing looks like this is my new psp system come june! lol =

+ superstewie on April 8th, 2010 at 5:14 pm said:

now all we need now is a new PSP2 (kill the go ;)
don’t include a phone! I’ve got an iphone! but what i would really want to see is a nice simple device which has a compass a good gps and motion sensor with games u could buy in a regular store! on something like a holographic memory stick.

i never got why sony never invested a single penny in semi-solid-state optical storage technology.
how hard could it be to read 3D optical data from a non-moving stick? either optically or magnetically (it’s all possible)

YES!!!! Thank you!!! Camo PSP! Here i come!!! It’ll make a nice friend for my original fat PSP

this would match my metal gear limited edition gunmetal ps3 console! i can’t wait! wish they’d carry the snakeskin pouch, konami-style edition with the stand to watch the cinematics! i’m a die-hard fan – no, really. have metal gear saga, shrink-wrapped, metal gear ac!d, shrink-wrapped, metal gear digital graphic novel, shrink-wrapped, well, you get the idea. :D

if someone knows hideo kojima personally, tell him thanks and please bring back ZONE OF THE ENDERS!!!

That’s way more cool then the psp go I so want the cameo one!

+ drazilice on April 8th, 2010 at 6:18 pm said:

Can anyone confirm if this bundle (big boss bundle) will contain the actual game case or a slip with just the umd?

This gets better and better. these two packs alone raises my hopes for the rest of the Carnival colors here in the US. I hope the next one is a Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Radiant Red PSP bundle, I would so love that.

keep up the good work SCEA. kudos over 9000.

+ MattNasty on April 8th, 2010 at 7:09 pm said:

Just went and paid for it in full. gotta stay on top of that MGS. Yeah i have a psp go and no this doesnt bother me one bit. as my psp go is smaller and better to carry while out on the GO. I def will not be openig this either. gotta keep it hidden from the world lol.

+ Rene_Led on April 8th, 2010 at 7:54 pm said:

Damn! I regret getting the Rockband PSP edition lol!
Oh well At least I can buy the game later ;)
Any chance if the camo like a PSP skin or it like embedded into the PSP system itself?

+ Dante989 on April 8th, 2010 at 8:02 pm said:

Should have done this with the PSP GO …. the sales on that are terrible… I see it full on store shelves…
Maybe if you did this with the GO it would have helped sell a few.
Sony… you really screwed yourselves with the PSP Go…
Is it me or did you come to the realization that it just didn’t work so you abandon it altogether.

And I know you read all our comments…So a response would be much appreciated.

+ Vicechan on April 8th, 2010 at 8:13 pm said:

Is the pouch going to include the strap that comes with the Japanese Premium Package? If so, and we can get the camo cloth/bandana from Gamestop, I’m buying this in a second.

DO WANT! I’m so glad this came to US. I was about to import.

+ VCSabertooth on April 8th, 2010 at 8:55 pm said:

My question is : Why is it a 3000 and not a Special edition PSP-GO. By doing a 3000 it looks as though Sony dose not like the PSP-GO. I mean seriously , Dose a new paint job really cost that much ? I want to know, who in their right mind is going to spend $50 more for a PSP-GO? When they can get this bundle. Sony really needs to think, when they do this type of stuff. It makes people think that they bought the wrong product. Especially when the newest bundle that Sony comes out is cheaper then what their “Newest Model” PSP. For me it would have been an instant sale if there was PSP-GO in the bundle. Now I am torn. And I ask Sony: Why should I get a PSP-GO? When I can just get this instead?

That’s a freakin awesome looking PSP.

Sorry #50, I know what you mean by looking at the Store updates each week, they clearly weren’t ready for a download-only handheld. Why they decided to release it last year, idk. Really glad my gf decided to get the GT PSP3000 bundle instead. <3

That’s it june 8th I’m ready. That big boss pack is crazy its a must buy for me day one purchase for me, psp is back and it’s a good timing but I am mad that this installment of mgs went to rated T.


86

+ Roguejedi5 on April 8th, 2010 at 11:28 pm said:

Does this mean the psp go people are left out again? they don’t get anything special? Anyways at least you guys ain’t charging extra for this exclusive bundle and just selling it at the same price as the other one.


87

+ umtamadrummer on April 8th, 2010 at 11:44 pm said:

So you put the better looking PSP with a 2GB duo and a movie no one will want.

Then announce a hideous redneck version PSP with a bigger memory stick duo?

I mean I’m sure the movie will be worth as much as the green man-purse you get with Big Boss since UMD’s were the portable Betamax and all, but come on.

Does that mean you take the good with the bad or what?

+ TolaTola on April 9th, 2010 at 12:07 am said:

Some other gaming sites are saying this will be available in Canada as well, but this post only mentions it will be “available only at GameStop locations in the U.S.” Can someone from Sony please confirm this?

+ blood-sausage on April 9th, 2010 at 6:56 am said:

you guys are the reason why gamestop gets these exclusive products. the consumers bought from gamestop and utilized their bs trade in program, so quit complaining. you are ther reason why gamestop is where it is today. why would the pspgo get a special edition bundle if there’s no umd… why would people drop $200 on a psp go with a memory card. umd clearly has more value than a digital file.

Ugh. What’s up with giving GameStop exclusive stuff. GameStop is pure evil! I prefer the Spirited Green PSP to the Camo PSP, but why should I miss out on a 4GB stick and a case because of that? You’d think they’d try to reward you for not going to GameStop instead of prolonging its reign of terror. Anyway, I really hope the PSP Entertainment Pack includes the proper game box, I wasn’t aware previous ones only gave you cardboard.
