Thanks to Hideo Kojima and the Konami website, a couple more details for the Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection have popped up, though the elusive final price point (I’m guessing $60) still remains a mystery. - PSLS
What a great compilation.
Best way for newcomers to catch up, certainly
I really hate they don't include MGS Portable OPS. Even if it's not a HKojima game, it is canonical.
I feel the word EPIC is not good enough to describe Metal Gear
I liked Portable Ops, but Kojima openly doesn't like it and is trying to rewrite that part of the story.
If it's $60 (£40 here) then it just makes it that much better. I played MGS1/2 here and there never properly went through them. This will give me a chance to. Quick question, I read through the Article, it doesn't include MGS3 right? Slightly confused :l
what is metal gear solid integral
Its Metal Gear Solid 1 with alot of VR Missions and extra content.
Redone MGS1 with a few different things + MGS VR missions(yes the one where you can play as grey fox for a while) in one package
Even though I own all game it's a buy lol MGS my favorite series
60 hours of gameplay, 120 hours of cutscenes.
Lool they did over do it in MGS 4
Thats cause it was a movie 1st then they added some gameplay at end of development.
Boooooo, low blow.
Wasn't meant as a low blow, just that there's a lot of cutscenes.
Seriously though I think the gameplay/cutscene ratio in MGS games ranges from 2:1 in MGS1 to 4:5 in MGS4. It depends on how you play, of course.
3:5 MGS4, just saying. Still MGS4 is my top 3 game this Gen.
That's not a problem at all
Yeah cutscenes is not a problem, you can skip it but I think you already know that? and Honestly I love cutscenes. A game with so little cutscene is somehow boring for me. cutscenes tells the story and enriches gameplay experience. Hideo knows whats good for his games.
A few cutscenes are fine, but MGS4 had too many that were too long. I would finish up one section, expecting to be able to save and head out (oft times running late), and I would be required to sit through up to 50 minutes of cutscenes in which I could not save and there was no gameplay at all. That's excessive. I loved the game, still do, but there are more cutscenes than time spent actually controlling Snake.
Dark Souls isn't boring. Far from it, actually.
I've played Skyrim alone for over 60 hrs.
60 very epic hours. 80-90 if you play on Boss extreme (Like me) @_@ I actually drooled while reading this article. :b,,,,,,,,,,,
Honestly read that as "Over 60hrs of epic cutscenes" I kid you not.
That is an epic collection
Limited Edition Or No BUY
Good. Maybe then you can work on your English skills.
I hope it's released on the PSN store. Edit: damn it comes with books so probably not
I'd love to see everyone bitch if he ever got sick of your bitching and released a game without a single cutscene. And then everyone would say "the story didn't make any sense, was there even a story? I don't get it, we just ran around, hid, and then shot a couple people." I hope he never changes again to cater to an ungrateful market. We already got Raiden because of people bitching, and even though he's not necessarily a bad thing, what would we have gotten if there wasn't bitching? I say make your vision exactly as you see it, and let the people who share your view and style love it, and **** the rest. Because honestly. **** all of you.
MGSV wont have many as Kojima reckons hes found a new way to tell the story.
Will MGS 1 have trophies? Or are we gonna have to wait for sony to implement that new patent they have so we can get trophies they have? (and on valkyrie chronicles, and onimusha 1-DOD).
It'll just be the original PS1 game, untouched. Just like on PSN. Just like on store shelves in 1998.
its a good thing actually, nobody dares to sketch on the Mona Lisa!!
I can only hope they include the content that was missing from the the HD Collections like Skateboarding & Snake vs. Monkey.
And the MGS3 nightmare segment! Coolest easter egg ever, and the codec calls that accompany it are pure gold.
Unfortunately it won't happen. Before the HD Collection came out Kojima said he had lost the rights to those so he won't be including them in the collection.
Is this first PS3 game to be on multiple discs
The God of War Collection with 1, 2, 3, and both PSP titles that were upgraded for PS3 had two discs. 1 and 2 were on a disc. 3 was on a disc. The PSP upgrades were download codes.
haha I get the irony!! That would have been on 36 dvds on the 360 Lol
the graphic novels and vr missions are great but if its gonna be $60 for the same collection + a few extras them ill pass prob buy it used since i already have the Original MGS and the vr mission. i would get this just to collect it since im a huge MG Fan
Fapping commencing in 3....2....1
What are the missing games?
I actually have no idea. Only games I can think of not on here are Ac!d and Portable Ops (and I think there was a Gameboy Color game as well) as well as Metal Gear Online I guess.
Wow how many times has Konami sold and re-sold these games...
As long as people keep rebuying them? Lol. TBH, I won't buy this collection because I already have all the games on it and I'm not much of a collector type.
I was going to buy the HD collection but this seems way better! Now i wait...
Pass.. I already own all these games...
Should port to PS4
I'm glad this is a ps3 exclusive, the way it should be
Would be nice to have hidden as an Easter egg the original NES/Famicom Metal Gear game. That you need to find a hidden item or something to unlock. Been years since I played that one.
this is still a possibility
MGS3 has the superior and correct MSX version.
Any word on the UK release date?
just like the massive god of war collection the problem is that most metal gear fans have most everything thats on here. Its not worth paying full price for to get the comics. It have been nice for the original metal gears and metal gear solid to be on here remastered with trophy support.
Blu-ray for the win again and again.
If this was on the 360, you would need a suit-case to pack all those disc.
yes that is true but i would loves to have metal gear suitcase!!
The lack of MGS1, VR Missions on discs, as well as the "still missing" Disc 2 of Subsistence is a major deal breaker for me.
I put over 70 hours into Peace Walker alone.
I really wish they would re remake MGS1 (I know they made it for Gamecube)to play like MGS4. That would be amazing
