As E3 draws closer, it becomes more apparent to me that my antique Nokia phone will not be sufficient when it comes to getting information to my loyal readers as quickly as possible. I have started looking into upgrading to an iPhone, which means I need to start thinking about something of great importance: protection.
There are a number of lame-ass iPhone jackets, but I would rather have no iPhone at all then make it wear dumb clothes, am I right? Anyway, as I mentioned a while back Konami and Hideo Kojima produced a line of air jackets for the iPhone and iTouch in collaboration with Power Support. I figured it would be a while before I saw these beauties stateside – luckily I was wrong.
The U.S. website for Power Support has started carrying the first series of the MGS air jackets. There are 13 total available and each one will run you $49.99 which is pretty close to the Japanese retail price of 4500 yen. Nice to see they aren’t gouging when they totally could.
I am totally getting the corrugated one pictured at the top. If you plan on buying one of the air jackets, make note of the installation instructions at the bottom of each page. It is likely that the directions included with the packaging will be in Japanese so you may not be able to rely on them. Sorry about my recent Metal Gear obsession, I think it will subside soon enough. I will keep keep you guys posted on my iPhone progress, and if anyone has any advice on the matter please let me know!
