Metal Gear Solid 4 Goes Budget In JapanS

This past March, Metal Gear Solid 4 went to Sony's Platinum budget line in Europe. Now, it's following suit for Japan.

Hideo Kojima's swan song for Solid Snake, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, will be released on Sony Computer Entertainment's "PLAYSTATION 3 the Best" line on June 18 for ¥3,990 (US$41).

MGS4 went on sale June 12, 2008. Even though it's one of the biggest selling PS3 titles in Japan, MGS4 still hasn't reached the million copies sold benchmark in The Land of the Rising Sun.

By the end of last year, the game sold had 4.5 million copies worldwide.
