GAME is hoping that that the special edition Metal Gear Solid 5 PS4 won't cost you a (bionic) arm and a leg to pick up this September.

Inspired by the next instalment in Hideo Kojima's iconic stealth franchise, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the console is outfitted with a swish black and red design, complemented by a gold band and the logo of the in-game Diamond Dogs unit. The colours are said to be reminiscent of the tech-powered limb of hero Venom Snake.

Inside sits a 500GB hard drive, rather than the 1TB storage found in Sony's revised machine, but like the original PS4, players can always pop out the hard drive and replace it with something bigger.

The DualShock 4 controller likewise has an updated visual design, clad in metallic grey and again featuring the Diamond Dogs sign.

A Day One edition of The Phantom Pain is also included.

The pack will set you back 364.99, with a 20 deposit required to guarantee one when it's released on September 1st alongside The Phantom Pain.

If you're hoping to buy in bulk and use the resulting computing power to control a walking tank equipped with nuclear missiles, tough luck – sales are restricted to one per customer.
