I would love one Sealed if it ever came my way. I was too ashamed to post pictures of my banged up box on my site, that's really snobbish though isn't it, but it looks to me like I'll be hard pushed to find one in mint condish these days. Luckily for me, it's contents are in top condition so I'm happy, but I'm still in the hunt for a sealed one. The one's I've seen that are in good condition and non-sealed, people are trying to sell for megabucks. I've yet to see any sealed, as am I a sealed PAL MGS.

Now you've posted pics of yours I'm tempted to get my pictures out too! lol.

Does anyone know how many were made? If it is rarer than the Gold Shareholder Pack then I'm happy, but are you really sure about that fact illusion mate?

Does Violent own this? I don't think he does to be honest, he's not moved onto PAL yet, but he doesn't miss a trick so I wouldn't be surprised he'll get one eventually! He's gone a bit quiet...where you to mate? (god that was Welshy! Forgive my colloquialisms at times! lol) In English, that means "Where are you?"

sorry, but this has nothing to touch against the Premiums Shareholder JPN.

the only reason why this might seem more rare than the JPN shareholder one is because everyone who got a PAL premium back then was an idiot, they all opened it up. (compared to the Japanese people, who all kept it mint sealed)

unless I see that it's sealed (around the box, if that exists) and mint condition, its not that rare at all, esp considering last week there were at least 2-3 of them on UK ebay.

The price... its nowhere near Premium Shareholder JPN. check the "spotted" thread, im sure there are a few recorded there.

I don't think he's saying it's better than the Gold Premium mate, but if the numbers stack up, maybe he's right in saying that it's rarer than the shareholder. Depends on how many were made. If it's less than 5,000 then he's correct.

If it exists though, the chances of seeing a sealed copy are slim indeed, I'd say, just from the past few months of looking, that a sealed MGS PAL Premium is definitely rarer than a Gold Shareholder Sealed. Yeah you're right though, even if it is rarer, it'd never match the price of a Gold Shareholder, sealed or not.

Somehow though, I don't think less than 5,000 of these were made, but it'd be cool to find out.

I'd say that you'd be looking at under £100 for un unsealed PAL Premium illusion. I bought mine for a bargain £50 warts 'n' all!

hmmm, im actually not sure about the production run for the PAL one, so I can't say which one might be "rarer" in terms of numbers.

but of course, even if it does run over 5k print runs, im sure at least 90% of them are opened, which actually makes it "sealed" even MORE rare.

Yeah exactly mate, it's gutting to think that people over here didn't think about that when they bought them up on release date. I'd love to see one, in fact, hell, I'd love to know if they even came sealed in the first place! lol.

Yeah I agree in most instances, but in this instance I'd still love to find a sealed one!

Post Re: factory sealed premium package(pal,uk)-real value?
Here's the scoop. Konami was infamous for *NOT* sealing their PAL region games. Sealedgameheaven moderator Gemini-Phoenix has an awesome thread regarding this. Now, that's not to say no Konami games were sealed, it's just some are and some aren't. Even today many copies of MGS4 in the UK are new but not sealed. Anyways....

The Premium Pack was NOT sealed by Konami. The inner contents were but not the box. The boxes were sealed by some retailers, so although yours is sealed and I highly suggest not to open it, it's not a sought after factory seal. How did I finally find this out? Someone in the UK had contacted me that saw it on my want list as "Premium Pack PAL *sealed* and informed me all about it. He's worked at a video game store for years, even when this was released 11 years ago. I also know someone in Spain that has a case of these (spanish version) and none of the boxes are sealed (only inner contents), but it's only recently I've received confirmation on the PAL version.

As far as print run, I believe it's 10,000 for the entire european region.

Although it's quite rare and a sealed PAL premium package (only inner contents sealed) may be harder to find than a sealed gold package, I doubt it would sell higher. If you're looking for a number, I think yours with the extra store seal would go for $300-$400US depending on how good of an auction listing you make and if you can attract the right buyers.

Hope that helps!

Quality, cheers for the info Violent, you really are a goldmine of info fella. I guess I can probably count the store seal out then, I don't think I'd want that anyway. So the search continues, I just need a mint condish box! lol. Time to ammend the wishlist! :)

The game inside was sealed though, so here's a tip to get a better deal.

Buy an open premium package (if the game only is open) and a sealed MGS and just swap the too. You'd be the only person that knows and it might save you money.

Possibly, but it'd be VERY VERY minor. It's more noticeable on the JPN version as there's a different SPCH-# on it and sometimes even a MSRP I think on the front for the individual version.

I'm too lazy to go check mine heh. There is a diff though.

Nope, no differences at all between my stand alone and my premium pack versions.

What is the contents of this thing? So far it really only looks like a really shiney 300-500 dollar box.
