To coincide with the launch of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker on the Playstation Portable, Sony is getting set to launch a custom-painted Walkman W252 based on the game's art. This style of MP3 player is a wearable unit with everything contained by the earpieces. It will hold 2GB worth of songs plus it comes preloaded with six tracks from the game. The W252 model is based on the Walkman W250, so you are getting the same water-resistant ability with a custom MGS theme. It seems like there is a custom code inside the box of the Walkman that allows you to unlock hidden characters in the PSP game, which is a pretty nice bonus. The Walkman can be charged for 3 minutes and give about 90 minutes worth of playback or fully charged and give close to 11 hours of music. The Walkman W252 will launch this June around the same time the new MGS game launches.
