Metal Gear PS4 is gorgeous, probably an Asian-only release

The newest limited edition PlayStation 4 to grace our screens is just another reminder that the coolest limited edition consoles almost never make it over here, and it might just be the best looking one yet.

This particular edition will be released alongside Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Here’s what Sony has to say about it on the official Hong Kong page for the system:

The PS4 console that comes with the bundle is colored the same way as Snake’s red prosthetic left arm (Bionic Arm). In addition, the golden connector part of the artificial arm has also been reimagined in meticulous detail, giving the console a sense of sturdiness. The DualShock 4 wireless controller sports the color of Snake’s right-hand gun, which is embellished with Snake’s unit logo.

Not every PlayStation 4 gets the royal treatment – the Bloodborne system just has the game’s logo emblazoned on it. The Yakuza 5 system gets a cool irezumi tattoo style print. But then there’s the Dragon Quest Heroes system that comes with its own metal slime and of course the ultra-limited 20th Anniversary system, of which only 12,300 were made.

For the importers out there, no pricing or exact release date is available just yet.
