The Walkman ZX series NW-ZX2 and A Series NW-A16 MP3 players will be available next month—but only in Japan.
The ZX2 is a hefty ¥140,000 ($1,128) and includes the game's title printed on the front, as well as a leather case stamped with the Outer Heaven mercenary group's logo. It also comes pre-installed with 10 high-resolution Metal Gear soundtrack songs, including "Sins of the Father," "Quiet's Theme," and "Heavens Divide," as well as four HD wallpapers.
The more moderate NW-A16 Walkman, available for ¥28,000 ($226), sports the same Outer Heaven image engraved on the back, and comes packaged in a similarly themed box.
Sony last summer resurrected its classic Walkman: a modern digital music player with a vintage aesthetic. The NWZ-ZX1 features bulky dimensions and a hefty price tag of $700, though it's currently selling for $500 on Amazon.

Six months later, the tech giant introduced the next-gen ZX2, with Bluetooth compatibility, 60-hour battery life, 128GB of internal storage, and a body sculpted from solid aluminum. It sells for just south of $1,200.
If you're in the market for something a little more all-inclusive, Sony is also selling a Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain-branded Xperia J1 Compact smartphone, and Xperia Z4 and Z3 Compact tablets. The smartphone includes a stamped logo on the back, "radio call" ringtone, and two original soundtrack tunes. Its larger siblings, meanwhile, promise two original case design choices, as well as two songs.
