It’s no secret that we love collector’s editions – especially if they’re one of our GAME exclusives. The feeling of unboxing a highly anticipated game, presented in a glorious package is a thrill unlike any other. Even better is knowing that you’ve got your hands on a collector’s item that only the most dedicated fans will get to experience.

If you’re anything like us, then prepare to be very jealous when you see the gem that YouTuber TheRelaxingEnd has discovered.

This ultra-rare item is a package that was sent to Konami investors in September 1998, for the original launch of Metal Gear Solid on the Sony PlayStation. The ‘Premium Package’ is presented in a glossy gold box, emblazoned with the iconic Metal Gear Solid logo, as well as the ‘Tactical Espionage Action’ tagline.

Along with a copy of the game and a soundtrack CD, the box contains a ‘Metal Gear Solid Classified’ document, featuring art by Yoji Shinkawa and information about the game’s development. Of course, it’s all printed in Japanese, but you can bet there are some juicy secrets sequestered within!

The box also contains a stylish MGS tee and a set of authentic FOXHOUND dog tags. Once you’ve thumbed through the beautiful full-colour instruction manual, all that’s left to do is pop in the game and enjoy… but good luck getting your hands on it, the few copies available are going for around $1,000!
