In the latest PlayStation Store update most PAL countries, including our Australian neighbours were relieved to finally see Metal Gear Solid arrive on their store – New Zealanders? Not so much. Instead we get a note in the PlayStation Europe blog under one of the most anticipated releases since Sony started pumping out PlayStation Classics on the service.
• Metal Gear Solid (£7.99/€9.99) Rating: PEGI 18+
Availability: Not available in New Zealand”
We have been omitted from the classic’s release – a move which is likely going to disappoint gamers who have waited for this PAL release since the title launched on the American PlayStation Store earlier this year.
When questioned about it by a commenter, the blog author pointed the finger at Konami, saying "Konami didn’t submit it for release there I’m afraid."
NZGamer.com has contacted Sony NZ for comment, as Sony NZ oversee the distribution of PSN titles.
