Limited edition Gunmetal PlayStation 3 coming to the US Sony Computer Entertainment America has revealed that a new PlayStation 3 SKU will be hitting retail shelves to accompany the release of Konami's Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
The new bundle will have a "gunmetal grey" colorway console, a copy of the game, and "very, very Limited edition" packaging, according to Sony.

Besides the latest bundle, Sony will also be resurrecting the 80GB PS3 for an MGS4 bundle and that bundle will include a PS3 DualShock 3 controller and the game.

As another added incentive, consumers that pre-order the game will receive a free Metal Gear Saga Vol. 2 DVD and "a voucher for access to the Metal Gear Online beta trials."

Anyone know if this will be an 80GB version that has PS2 back-wards compatibility?

So any words on how much is the gun metal gray PS3 is? How limited is it? How do you pre-order one? I'm assuming the DS3 in the MGS PS3 is also gun metal gray?

No, it's a very easy process. There's a bay on the side of the PS3. You simply undo a couple screws and the HDD pops out.

You need to make sure it's a 2.5" HDD though. Also if you want to save everything on your current HDD, use the back-up feature. This backs everything up to an external USB HDD. Once you have your new HDD in place, you can use the restore feature to put everything back onto your new HDD.

Thanks! i did some digging and looks like there's no pre-order information yet. I'm in for one at $500, even if it's the 40gb version...

for those who were wondering this is what it looks like


If I am able to get my hands on one I'll be very happy that I waited to get a ps3.

Well this is a VERY VERY LIMITED EDITION PS3, so I'm guessing it will be like absolutely rare, I want to get another ps3... but The chances of getting this one is rare... If I could get this one and the chances are high then ye, I would get me another ps3.

(baker2323)Sorry i dint get back with you, But (Ryu77) is right, its easier than the PS2 if you ask me.

Just asked two different Gamestop about this LE bundle and nope... They do not have them for pre-order (actually they don't even know the gun metal bundle even existed). Read couple of posts from Engadgets and nope, no one seems to know where to pre-order this thing.
