No pre-load for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on PC

Consoles can still pre-load though

Bad news if you were hoping to get Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain all pre-loaded up on your PC in time for the September 1 launch -- Konami has confirmed that there's no pre-load available on Steam.

"Unfortunately PC Steam will not have a pre-load option," said Konami's online community manager, Robert Allen Peeler on Twitter. "However players will be able to pre-load on console."

When pressed for a reason why -- particularly as console versions can pre-load -- Peeler said that unfortunately he didn't have "a specific reason", stating that it was "pretty common practice for PC/Steam users".

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will release on September 1.
