The official PlayStation Blog on Thursday confirmed the release of both the "gunmetal grey" PS3 and 80GB bundle pack in commemoration of the impending launch of Metal Gear Solid 4 on June 12.

The Metal Gear Solid 4 Limited Edition PlayStation 3, previously announced for Japan, will be in "very, very" tight supply, says Sony. Details on pricing and availability were not yet disclosed.

Sony also showed off the Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 Hardware Bundle leaked earlier by Amazon, which is packaged in a white box. As previously reported, the bundle includes an 80GB PS3, a copy of Metal Gear Solid 4, and a DualShock 3 controller for a retail price of US$499.
