Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is coming out for the PSP soon, and in classic Sony style, we're being treated to a custom-painted W252 Walkman to celebrate the event. This wearable MP3 player can fit 2GB of your favorite stealth action theme music, and gets the party started with six preloaded tunes from the Peace Walker soundtrack. Beyond that, you're getting that gorgeous camo outfit and the same water-resistant durability as the less Limited W250 models. Full PR and one more pic after the break.

Published by KONAMI and scheduled for release on PSP® and PSP®go June 2010, METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER is the latest instalment in the legendary Metal Gear game series.

Developed by KONAMI's Kojima Productions, METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER is the first title in the series designed by original creator Hideo Kojima for a portable gaming platform.
