Original MGS >>>>>>>&g t;>>>>>>>& gt;>>>>>> TS

Deal With It!

Will throw MGS4 out of the window and replace it with this goddamn collection...
Zezo  +   444d ago
this's so dump, what's the point of having this since I have the HD collection 1 year ago? what an absolute waste. Comes with all crap that's already available...I guess Nintendo is still hoarding the rights to Twin Snakes so Konami will never be able to release it again on anything that isn't a Nintendo platform. Pieces of S@$#

The pics show PS1's MGS, which is a good thing... but not remastered, which is not a good thing.

Hopefully those are just pics the site used to show the game and they'll actually include a remastered MGS1, but it's very likely just a download voucher.

(Currently plating MGS2HD - 80% trophies - on Extreme harrier boss fight) <<Harrier beaten>>

Either way, I want a full PS4 remake using the original voices and music. None of that bad voice acting and cheesy cut-scenes from Twin Snakes.

Tetsujin  +   444d ago
MGS is the first official game I played that actually taught me games "can" get mature over time; and also taught me certain things that to this day I still perform in other games.

I can officially say MGS is one franchise I will continue to support, as long as Konami, Kojima, and the fanbase keep it 100.

@CableFish - You should hold-off until December when Konami announces MGS Legacy Supreme Enhanced Collection :)

They released all this 6 months ago...why the hell are they releasing another one. Couldn't they wait till PS4 because PS4 won't be backwards compatible. I don't see any point especially when people already have it.

Dumbass, the HD Collection was released in Nov 2011- early 2012 depending on region which also included the Ultimate Edition, you just proved me right because it clearly says on Wiki.

Release date(s)
PlayStation 3, Xbox 360: NA November 8, 2011
JP November 23, 2011
EU February 3, 2012
AU February 16, 2012

6 months back from April was October, the release of the ZOE HD Collection, look it up cause you clearly didn't do research or have bad reading comprehension, the Ultimate Collection was UK only & saw release on Nov 25 2011, but for some people it got pushed back to Feb 2012, over a year ago, also you don't have Portable Ops since it's canonical & unfortunately it's not included in the collection, I have the complete canon collection FYI. So, who's the idiot now? Ujust2Dumb.

I already have the MGS HD limited edition collection and MGS 4 limited edition

Unless MGS 1 gets a HD upgrade I don't personally see any reason to buy this

Now if they come out with a limited edition than I will buy it, MGS limited editions are pretty rare besides the 4th

I don't think MGS is HD since all the others ones have HD after title and MGS doesn't

I guess I would want this if I've never played a MG game and am not busy for the next 5 years.
RyanDJ  +   444d ago
It says nothing of an upgrade to MGS1. As excited as I was for this, if theres no improvements, I have the digital download of MGS1 and MGS4 with the trophy update installed. Ill just wait and buy the HD used copies of 2/3/PW as they are returned.

Now, if this is Twin Snakes, on the other hand...
LOGICWINS  +   444d ago
I'll actually be buying this if its $39.99. I played MGS2,3, and 4 but I never played MGS1 and Peace Walker.
taiwanesebrothaz  +   443d ago
mgs1... the best one u didn't play... lol
esemce  +   444d ago
There will not be twins snakes as that would mean doing a deal with Nintendo and Silicon Knights and we all no how well the Xbox Goldeneye project went.

Best option probably this :

l too wish TS was released or konami did another remake! I just cant play ps1 games on HD tv. I've been on the fence to get msg1 for vita. I just dont know how it looks and plays
Ace_Pheonix  +   443d ago
Very well, actually. I'm in the middle of a playthrough now. Front touch pad for start and select, rear touch pad for R2 L2 and you're golden. And the digital manual is in there just in case you don't know Meryls codec number offhand.

Ha, I remember someone telling me this was nothing more than a rumor, AND, that it would be multiplatform if proven true.

Regardless, Day 1!

contradictory  +   444d ago
why would i care?
i already have HD Collection which covers most of them
and i do also have the ps1 MGS on psn

if it's Twin Snakes then in that case i'd get it
but it doesn't mention about anything like that
Eyeco  +   444d ago
It kills me to say, but this smells like a quick cash in on PS3 owners, MGS 1 is on PSN, every MGS fan has MGS 4 and it recently got trophy support, MGS collection was released last year.

The only thing that would make this a logical release is if it had Twin Snakes, maybe licencing issues ? then fair enough I'll stick to the GC, Still it would have been nice to play a Metal Gear game on the PS3 in HD, PlayStation will always be the home of the franchise.
NBT91  +   444d ago
Exactly I'm a fan but I'm not an idiot. I'll pass on this. Already own everything that it offers except for the graphic novels. But I don't think that's worth the price...
Darrius Cole  +   444d ago
I still have to finish Peace Walker, but it looks like I will be waiting for the first MGS compilation to hit the PS4.
Donnieboi  +   444d ago
I'll skip since I own all of these games (even the VR missions ps1 game), except I won't own this new box they will come in. But for anyone new to many of these games, you won't be disappointing. That's enough fun to last you until 2014.
jagstatboy  +   444d ago
Does the disc-based stand alone version of MGS4 have trophies?
Minato-Namikaze  +   444d ago
Yes, when you boot the game up it installs the trophy patch. The newer version the game discs might have it on the disc though, so you dont need to go online to get the patch.
Why no Twin Snakes???
brettyd  +   444d ago
Yea, I never played it and would like to. It's expensive on ebay, a re-release would be awesome.
NBT91  +   444d ago
I don't get why it's so expensive on E-Bay. I would have thought most people have it.
Anyway to be honest while its kind of cool having MGS2 things and visuals it does kind of take away from the aesthetic of the original. The shoot out with Ocelot for example is obviously a lot easier when you can aim in FP view.

It's not all that to be honest, I don't see why people are so mad about it...
delboy  +   444d ago
I think N has rights for Twin Snakes.

Anyway, a collection without the first game remastered is no collection at all, it's incomplete.
Reason I didn't buy the first MGS HD collection, I own the original releases and it's a complete collection ;-)
yewles1  +   444d ago
Why no Twin Snakes? Because it's not canon.

Besides, *spoilers* you REALLY want to see an our-of-character Solid Snake doing crazier jumps than cyber ninjas?

How is it not Cannon when its just a Remake of MGS1 ? Regardless if the remake didn't involve Kojima he was involved with MGS1
PirateThom  +   444d ago
Fossilfern....

The best way to look at Twin Snakes is as if Otacon is retelling it. It is too over the top and has Snake doing stuff Grey Fox and Raiden were doing after upgrades.

NBT91  +   444d ago
It's not that though, it's just that for quite a lot of fans who didn't have game cubes, the game is now pretty expensive and some-what rare. It's not about whether its better than the original, it's about adding it to their collections.
And even so I'm sure most people are at least curious to play through it. I mean it's a remake of one of the best games of all time.
despair  +   444d ago
meh, no Twin Snakes then no point for me, got everything else.
Williamson  +   444d ago
Not bad for someone who has never played the series.

Why would anyone want to play these old games? No one cares about BC and no one plays games from previous gens on their PS3.

ALLWRONG, is that you?

Buying a collection has nothing to do with backwards compatibility.
Imalwaysright  +   444d ago
No, you're wrong, I'm not allwrong. No one plays games from previous generations on their PS3 and BC is not needed. Someone should tell Konami that they're wasting their time and money because PS3 fanbo... errr owners don't care about games from previous gens and consequently they don't care about BC. PS3 fans only play PS3 games on their PS3, preferably PS3 exclusives which are by far the best games ever made!!!!

Eyeco  +   443d ago
Yeah because when I pop a PS2 game into my BC PS3 , it runs in HD, locked in 60fps with trophy support, HD REMAKES are a scam, run away troll, even if the PS3 was still BC people would still want a HD remakes hence why there also released on the 360, and soon to be on the WII-U.

What does this have to do with BC? I'm sure if someone is buying this they don't have a good number of the games to begin with so even if there was BC they wouldn't even be able to utilize it as they don't even have the discs...

I for one will not be buying this as I have all the games already, but if they were to do a remaster of MGS1 I would buy this collection at a deep discount to play a MGS1 remaster DESPITE having MGS1 ALREADY downloaded on my PS3...

And figure this... I DOWNLOADED MGS1 off of the PS store DESPITE the PS3 being backwards compatible with PSOne games. I lost my original copy of MGS1 so I bought it off the store.

I'm not trying to say I don't care for BC at all. I would love to have it, but it isn't deal breaker at all. After all you do buy new consoles to play new games for that particular console.

"What does this have to do with BC?" PS3 owners don't play games of previous generations on their PS3. They don't care about BC AND they don't care about this collection. It doesn't matter if they played the MGS saga before because they just don't care about games of previous generations. No, PS3 owners only play PS3 games on their PS3 preferably PS3 exclusives as they are the best games ever made.

"MGS1 ALREADY downloaded on my PS3." Ohh You went against PS3 fantard.... errr fans teachings. NO old games on your PS3. PS3 fans are going to put you to the stake.

Edit @ Mystic I'm trolling? I'm only repeating PS3 fanboys "teachings". They don't care about BC, therefore they don't care about games from previous gens so logic dictates that they shouldn't care about this collection neither. I'm sorry that, you, feel offended by me spreading PS3 fanboys "teachings".

I believe that you're not ALLWRONG, even though you are in fact all wrong. Neither one of you is a particularly good troll though, so you do have that in common also.

Buying a collection still has nothing to do with backwards compatibility, so even if your joke was funny it wouldn't matter.
violents  +   443d ago
Have you played these games? Outside of slightly clunky gameplay in the first one(compared to new games, it was awsome at the time) these games are kickass!

Was really hoping theyd Manage to get Twin Snakes in there :/ but im sure its some issues with Silicon Knights and Nintendo. Id be happy if they released HD Twin Snakes on WiiU
