Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker Goes Digital
Konami confirms downloadable version of Peace Walker for release opposite retail version.
It's a good day to be a PSP go owner! Joining Capcom's announcement of a downloadable version of Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G, Konami announced today that Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker will be released in download form.
Peace Walker's download version will come on April 29 -- day-in with the retail version. Pricing is set at ¥4,700. The game's retail version goes for ¥5,229, but most retailers will discount this to the low to mid ¥4,000 range.
The news was first reported at the Kojima Productions official blog. Konami will presumably issue a more formal press release later in the day.
For Sony, news of this and Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G's availability in download form should be well received. PSP go has struggled since release, likely due to lineup gaps that include major titles like Monster Hunter and Kingdom Hearts. The system's current hottest game, God Eater, is also package-only at present.
