Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is just a short bite

Metal Gear Shorted

We are getting a taste of Metal Gear Solid in 2014 -- next month, in fact -- in the form of Ground Zeroes. which will serve as a prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Game Informer has a huge MGSV cover story and in it we learned the "core story mission" can be completed in "less than two hours."

This doesn't include sidequests, console-exclusive missions, or any other replayability scenarios -- apparently Game Informer played for four hours in total -- but it could be seen as a bit short for the money it costs.

On PS3/360, Ground Zeroes is $20 or $30 for a digital or physical copy, respectively. On PS4 and Xbox One -- where you might want to play it because the saves commingle with Phantom Pain in some way -- it's $30 or $40. 

Avid Metal Gear fans are free to spend their money however they want. I just hope less informed consumers don't drop $40 on a prologue. Do you feel metal gear shorted by this prologue release or are you and Kojima still metal gear solid? I'm too busy being in love with that cover artwork.
