The price of the PlayStation 4 version of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes has been reduced on the European PlayStation Store, representing the title's second official price cut. To be clear, the boxed copy is still £29.99, however the digital version will now set you back £24.99. On first glance, it may seem that this change has come from Konami, but it's actually been put in place by Sony. Orders directly from the top, then.
As we mentioned in our review, we think that Kojima's paltry preamble was just too slight to satisfy, but to be honest, we're of two minds about this price cut. On the one hand, we're happy that the Japanese giant has wised up to that fact that consumers aren't particularly interested in paying full price for a demo. On the other, it seems to be a case of too little too late, especially considering the lack of a price drop on any other regional stores.
