Japan to get special edition Metal Gear Solid PS4

Fox Edition to come with copy of Ground Zeroes

Sony has confirmed a special Metal Gear Solid themed version of the PlayStation 4 console will be released in Japan.

The PS4 Fox Edition will come bundled with a boxed copy of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.


More notably, the console will also feature the Fox emblem on its side along with the Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes logo.

The console will be available to buy in Japan on March 20, the same day Ground Zeroes is released in the region.

It will sell for 46,980 (£275/$461), which is 7000 (£40/$68) more than the standalone version of the PS4.

Konami has recently confirmed that the PS4 version of Ground Zeroes will render at 1080p on PS4, but only 720p on Xbox One.

Last week, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima praised the technical prowess of the PS4, claiming it was "a little better" than the Xbox One.

"I think, between the home consoles available in the domestic market, the PS4 is the best," Kojima said in an interview last week. "It's also excellent for graphics, being able to render 1080p at 60fps with room to spare."

"Since it does it a little better than other hardware, the image quality of the PS4 is the most beautiful. It's the closest to the photorealistic quality we are aiming at."
