Post Physical DVD Release (PC) of Ground Zeroes?
I remember reading that that there would be no physical release of Ground Zeroes on PC and that it would only be available as a digital download from Steam. However, I came across this listing on Amazon UK the other day http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00REFHO6M/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_awdl_whkavb1WC61T8
Has anyone purchased or seen this release in person?

That is nice, it reads dvd so I guess it is not a steam key.

Finally found some info regarding this release. I'ill probably order it soon as I like to have the physical copies of the PC releases. I'll be sure to upload some pics of it when I get it as I have not seen any others besides the stock game art.

This also makes me wonder if they will follow a similar trend for a physical release of The Phantom Pain on PC. Hopefully they do and it would be nice if it was available on the same day as the Steam launch.

Apparently the PC version of The Phantom Pain is just a DVD with the installer for the Steam client and no game data.

I read the same thing, that it only contains ~8 MB Steam installer. That is disappointing to hear but I am unsure if that is how Ground Zeroes' physical PC release was. I would guess not, since there probably would have been backlash when that was released as well. I wonder if they only included the installer on the disk due to the PC release being moved up two weeks from the original planned release date; causing them to not be able to go "Gold" in time to put the actual launch files on the disc.

It will be interesting to see if there will be subsequent releases with the content on the actual disc (This would require at least 3 or 4 DVDs though). I am really hoping they release an Integral/Substance/Subsistence-like second revision of MGSV with additional content but that seems highly unlikely given the current Kojima/Konami situation.
