My, how time flies. The PlayStation brand is celebrating its 15th anniversary and in order to assist with the festivities, a couple icons of the industry are lending their special flair to the PSP.
As noted by Siliconera , both Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and MGS artist Yoji Shinkawa have decided to make a few PSP units very, very special. What you're looking at here are autographed portable units; the top one is signed by Kojima and the bottom features Shinkawa's signature plus a hand-drawn image of Snake. If you can speak Japanese, click here to learn more about how to score one of these rare PSPs; you can also pick up issue Vol. 460 of Dengeki PlayStation for further information. There will be some sort of contest and we're willing to bet you have to be in Japan, but regardless, we get the feeling a few might pop up on eBay before all is said and done. The question is, how much would you be willing to pay to call one of these specially autographed PSPs your own? I'm willing to bet the hardcore MGS fans would break the bank in an attempt to snag either…there's no knowing how many of these even exist.
Anyway, maybe we'll see more special treats like this to celebrate PlayStation's 15th year. 15 years. Good God. I still remember when a friend imported his well before it released in the US (he was always doing that), and I just refused to believe that Sony would have anything I'd want over Nintendo or Sega. …things change.
