Special Edition W252 introduced
Sony sure likes its special edition models, so when I saw this appear on the press site, I was hesitant to post it on the blog. The only people this will appeal to is Metal Gear Solid fans, since the normal W-Series will provide the same quality of sound and functionality as this special edition. Here is a quick run down of the specs:
• Unique camouflage finish
• Six pre-installed music tracks from METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER soundtrack
• Special in-carton code unlocks original designed characters
• Iconic past WALKMAN® models appear in METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER(KONAMI) game play as collectible items
• Only in 2GB capacity
• Available in June 2010 in select markets
Photo and press release after the break.
A special limited edition of the water-resistant, wearable WALKMAN® W252 celebrates the launch on PSP® and PSP®go of the hotly-anticipated title METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER (KONAMI).
Uniquely styled with a distinctive green camouflage finish, the all-in-one, wire-free MP3 player also comes pre-loaded with six music tracks from the game.
A coupon inside the packaging of each special edition WALKMAN® features a unique code that unlocks hidden characters.
Set in the 1970s, the storyline of METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER provides an extra treat for fans of the legendary personal music player. During game play you can collect iconic WALKMAN® models from the past, including the first-ever cassette-based WALKMAN® that made its debut in 1979.
Designed for today’s active lifestyles, the WALKMAN® W252 is the first wire-free MP3 player from Sony that resists rain splashes or the sweat of a gruelling gym session. After exercising, just rinse under the tap – or even keep listening during a post-workout shower.

Supplied Content Transfer software allows simple drag-and-drop transfer of music files and playlists from Windows Media Player or iTunes™ libraries (not including DRM files).
