View large image Tweet Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - Limited Edition

I have a couple of concerns about this edition.

http://www.zavvi.com/games/platforms.../10647081.html





Quote:
  • Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Game
  • Exclusive Action Figure: White Raiden - By Play Arts
  • Additional In-Game Content: Exclusive DLC - White Armor
My concerns:

1) Is it worth 99.99
2) I have never used Zavvi.com and would like to know if they are any good. (receiving game a early and any complications with orders.)

Any help would be appreciated.

PS. i failed with the thread title lol.

1. All depends on how much you want the figure as that is what the bulk of your money will be going towards. IMO, its not worth it, mainly because in japan you can get this version with the artbook and OST for only a little more (i think)

2. I have found that zavvi arn't too bad, things have usually arrived a day early or on the release date, only time i have had issue with them is when i have ordered something from them that no-one else has either in stock or on their site, then getting charged for it without said item being despatched, has only happened twice though and i always got the money back, just be careful if you order something thats unavailable elsewhere at the time.

Don't worry about exclusive things like this though, i got my LE MGS HD collection from them and it came a day early.

Another thing about zavvi that is good though is they do alot of discount codes, just google zavvi discount codes 2013 and you will get plenty, they do expire though.

I think at the minute they are even doing one for 10% off all preorder games, so techincally you could get this for 90.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the reply Kai, I'm the kind of person that likes to collect things and i hate this digital era we are moving to. If I buy a game i want to hold it, look at the case and read the manual, nowadays slip of paper which is ridiculous. I don't mind paying more to receive more, I do think 99.99 is overpriced and i will get this if i have the money. Its good to know that Zavvi are a decent company.

I also own MGS HD Collection but I would like to know if the Limited Edition is any good I want that art book so could you give me a brief description on it and maybe a 1-10 rating.

Thanks!

No worries, glad i could help

When it comes to CE/LE the thing i usually look out for (especially now) is value for money, and for me, things that make the extra price worth it are things like an artbook, soundtrack, or some sort of figure (i have master chiefs head and noble team ), and while this figure is nice, as i have seen him in a variety of poses, i think just paying for him primarily is abit much to ask.

Of course thats not saying a few bits of DLC here and there arn't a bad thing

I actually can't remember how much i paid for MGS, but, i was happy with what i got. The T-shirt was a medium i usually wear large but it doesn't look bad on me and i have even got some nods from people who arn't gamers who like the shirt. The artbook is very nice, only let down is it doesn't have the MGS1 art in, but, i think that was a ps3 exclusive in japan. The steelcase is ok, its not the best i have seen, but, it means i can keep the two game discs in separate boxes. Altogether i would give the box an 8/10 for content. I like artbooks, so if your anything like me you will want it just to have

ZOMG! Been diggin' this limited edition but my posse's no longer in UK/ EU. I'd rather have this action figure over a plasma lamp which i'll be receiving at the mail morrow! Well, i was looking at getting the figure at a US online toystore, from bigbadtoystore or cornerstorecomics but they're selling a different color scheme. And the red version also sold out quickly!

I ordered the US LE. Had doubts about it but the lamp looks bad-ass and its actually quite nice. I thought the size would be like a USB stick or something small but i'm glad that i was wrong.


It also has two modes, one for light only and one for light with electricity other then that, just turning it off.

I'll be getting the Raiden figure separately even if it's not the same model, it's still a cyborg Raiden figure where as the lamp can't be sold anywhere else except the US LE.

Haven't looked around for unboxing vids. But sure made me not regret anymore! LOL! Thanks for posting your 'unboxing', mate! I know bigbadtoystore used to have that special red version but not anymore! Well, just like you said, I might have to be happy with that colorway left for pre-order!

Grrrriffic! Can't wait to get my grubby hands on mine as well! But sure hope they'd have some replacements going on cuz mine for sure would be running close to 24/7! What if down the road something breaks & needs to be replaced esp that i would leave that running for long hours! That's really badass!
