As reported by Game Informer (via Kotaku) Hideo Kojima and Konami’s Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes prequel is a mere 2 hours long (not including side missions and console exclusive content, which brings the game to around 4 hours long).
Bear that in mind when you consider the pricing:
- Xbox 360 and PS3 retail copies: R399
- Xbox 360 and PS3 digital download copies: R299
- PlayStation 4 and Xbox One digital downloads: R399
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is scheduled to be released in March 2014, and acts as a prequel to events in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The game introduces a new open-world environment to the series, along with time of day, a variety of weather conditions, AI advances, and the customary Hideo Kojima weave of story-telling.
PlayStation platforms will receive the Deja Vu mission in which players take of the guise of classic snake, a pixellated recreation of Solid Snake from the original Metal Gear Solid game.
Xbox platforms will receive the Jamais Vu mission, in which the Metal Gear Rising version of Raiden is playable.
Do you think this is a fair asking price for a prequel which is ostensibly be little more than a paid demo for the full package of Metal Gear Solid V? Let us know in the comments.
