The Metal Gear series has been a huge sucsess from it’s very begining in Japan. The attention the games get is due to many things. The game play keeps you locked into the action and forces you to stay sharp and aware of what’s going on and the storyline is deep and intelligent which is something you may not expect from a series of this kind. Hideo Kojima, the creator of the series, has done so well with his game designs that he was recently promoted to Konami VP! If you haven’t played these games yet, start with the original Metal Gear Solid on PS1. The remake on Gamecube is really good, but it’s much easier.
The items listed here today are for both fans of the series as well as newcomers. There are a few auctions to break into these amazing games and some must-have items for the veterans of MGS.

Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 Console Premium Pack – This is the Japanese Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 limited bundle. It’s not very rare in Japan, but it would be cool to have in NA.
