Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Gets a Limited Edition

Special release to include artbook, collector's packaging by Yoji Shinkawa

One of my biggest vices are Collector's Edition games.  My eyes become the size of dinner plates at all the goodies included with them--even if it hurts the wallet some.  Of course, there are people worse than me, but Collector's Editions still hold a special pull over me.  Heck, I'm not even going to buy the new Mortal Kombat until its CE drops in price so I can get those sweet bookends.

Probably with my ilk in mind, Konami is releasing a Limited Edition to the upcoming Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, which revamps Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater for HD, and the first-ever console release of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, AKA The Further Adventures of Big Boss.  The Limited Edition will include a 248-page artbook filled with series details and designs by Yoji Shinkawa, and will come in special packaging with original art by Shinkawa.  There's no price revealed for it yet, but it's a nice, balanced bonus so I don't expect more than a $10 price difference.

 

UPDATE: Amazon lists the Limited Edition at $79.99, so it's an extra $20 for the hardcover artbook.

 

Anyone picking this up over the regular edition?  Or are there people among us who'd shell out twenty more dollars to pick up a bigger, better Collector's Edition (Solid Edition?) with a Big Boss punching puppet?
