Missed the GamesBeat Summit excitement? Don't worry! Tune in now to catch all of the live and virtual sessions here.

Arriving on all platforms earlier today is Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – the latest in the storied series published by Konami. While the title never received a proper pre-load period, the point is a bit moot now that the game is fully released.

PC gamers are getting some respite with the lack of pre-load in the form of some sweet cash savings. If you prefer going digital, select retailers have Phantom Pain on sale for as much as 23% off  – a decisively good deal for release day.

With the traditionally hilarious equipment/gears in MGS series such as chicken hat, cardboard box, and gentlemen’s magazine – Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is thus far receiving strong praises from critics and gamers alike. Each of the deals listed above should last through September 4th – and we’ll be updating this post if more shows up for other platforms.
