I purchased a copy of MGS3 Subsistence (Disk Only) from Ebay. There is no artwork on the disk, it is just the color black. My question is has the ever been a copy of MGS3 Subsistence released, with no artwork on the disk, and that is colored black? And is it possibly a counterfeit CD?

Thanks for any and all answers.

It may be. Based on the image search I did, it raises questions.

The version that was included in the MGS set that also included MGS1 and 2 had a disc without art on it. There was text on it, though.

The following image has the style of discs (The four to the right) that were included in the package:

Unfortunately, that version of MGS3S lacks all the features that the main version had... I forget everything that is lacking, but the entire disc 2 is gone, so there's no Secret Demo option, and I am fairly certain that MG1 and MG2 are also missing from it.

Are you able to post a picture of the disc that you purchased?

Or, even better, link us to the auction you got it from on ebay. Would be easier to tell if it was fake or not.

Glad to be of help. I would highly suggest trying to find the original two-disc release of MGS3S, though, as it has a lot more content to it than the simplified one-disc version has.

if the metal gear you did buy looks like the first picture that would be a fake or counterfeit disk here in the Philippines many disk like that is being purchased they don't know that disk is a counterfeit and more cheaper than the original prize so many people buy that type of disk
