Just because MGS4 included !

nick3091150d ago

Mgs 1 is a psn code in the collection.

Perjoss1150d ago

MGS1 was also a PC game.

Septic1150d ago

MGS1 came out on the Gamecube as well iirc.

raiden-491150d ago

Too all the people diliking there is a PC MGS and then there is the "remake" for the gamecube so its mainly just MGS4.

Why o why1150d ago

@ Majin Vageta below

harsh...but i do remember metal gear being dissed for....'being a movie', 'having too much cut scenes'
What happened.....lmao, rinse and repeat, smh

I remember a month ago I was hit with pm's because I stated that the playstation brand has made MGS what it is today even though metal gears and mgs's had appeared on other platforms. He wasn't familiar with idioms or the meaning and pm'd my ass until he blocked me because of my retorts I guess.. Chick flick *cough* omni *cough*

Im not surprised this collection is ps only, at least for now anyway

yoshiroaka1150d ago

So what does this mean for Metal Gear solid V? Isnt that coming to 360? :S

irepbtown1150d ago

I thought the next 2 MGS, MGS5 and Ground Zeroes would be next gen. So yoshiroaka, I think these two may end up on the next Xbox.

On-topic:

This collection is great for piecing the story together. I only played the old MGS (1/2) here 'n' there, so if I can get my hands on this it will be great.

It would have been too expensive to manufacture something with 6-8 discs with the extremely old DVD format.

I thought Otacon explained it already.

"Kojima stated that the Legacy Collection would require half a dozen discs on the 360."

Fact stated.

DatNJDom811149d ago

But I thought all u xbox guys said MGS4 was just a movie. Why would you want that on your xbox? LOL you guys are hilarious.

also kojima MGS4 being a ps3 exclusive wouldn't make sense for xbox360 owners getting the Legacy collection without MGS4

not having Bluray held many games back MS, you better not screw up this time around

_-EDMIX-_1149d ago

Buddy, I'm 100% with you! MS not using a larger format pretty much held back this entire generation!

Next gen when more games start using Bluray, I don't want to hear crap from people going nuts over the increase in quality over the games. Um...we could have had that THIS GEN! 720 having Bluray is a long overdue choice.

Tr10wn1149d ago

I wonder whats holding back the "next" generation since PC is ahead of the PS4 already by far.

Lame excuse next please.

Microsoft didn't hold back this generation, if you want the full advantage of blu-ray, get a PS3.

Did the Wii hold back this generation too since the Wii cannot produce the same kind of graphics as the Xbox 360 / PS3? You just buy an Xbox 360 or PS3 if you want the full advantage of the better processors.

j-blaze1149d ago

"MGS4 being a ps3 exclusive"

lol so what? it's not a Sony owned ip nor they're the publishers, MGS 1, 2, 3, PW were exclusive, but not anymore... it's just a matter of "disc space" as Kojima said, i think THAT telling you something

@gaming guru

"Did the Wii hold back this generation too since the Wii cannot produce the same kind of graphics as the Xbox 360 / PS3?"

Ummm... last time I checked Wii didn't get a copy of the multiplat games that are on x360 and PS3. And if they are on Wii the game is dumbed down seriously.

Since PS3 and x360 are so close to one another devs needed to launch games for both of them so they needed to either make the game fit on one disc or pay MS dearly for more discs not to mention if the game was even able to be chopped down to more than one disc. Wouldn't be ok to swap discs in GTA4 or 5 now would it?

Not much of a guru are you?

jcnba281149d ago

PSN has been broken since 2006, you better not screw up this time around.

You failed to miss the point, if you take in the whole comment, I also stated if you want to take full advantage of the better processors buy an Xbox 360 or PS3. I also stated if you want blu-ray, buy a PS3 so the generation isn't held back if something else out that is taking advantage of better technology.

In the end, my point was buy the technology with the tech you want to take advantage of.

For example the smart phones aren't holding back gaming since dedicated handhelds gaming exist, dedicated handhelds gaming don't hold gaming back since consoles exist, and consoles do not hold gaming back since computers exist.

Not much of a reader are you?

PS2 and XB used DVD (5 to 8 gigs)

PS3 uses Bluray (25 to 50gigs depending on type)

360 uses.....DVD (5 to 8 gigs)

STAND BACK GUYS DVD9 WAVE OF THE FUTURE! LOL!

Many need to understand. Making games using 7 to 8 gigs isn't the norm, they are making games using this size because its the 360's limit. If you see games like GT5, MGS4, Killzone 2 and 3, Uncharted, Last Of Us etc, these are all TRUE current gen games in the respect they are not making a game with 8 gigs in mind like they did LAST GEN! They are free to make a game the way they wanted to, not limiting, hindering, shortening etc to FIT 8gigs.

This is why many didn't want MGS4 as a multiplatform game, I could careless who's playing it, but I don't want my version hindered because of MS's stupid decisions when it comes to designing a system.

Ever wonder why GTAIV is so small, lacks many features that the older GTAIV's had? Ever wonder why FFXIII isn't open world with airships? Just saying, there is a reason why FFVII was never on N64 and if you understand that much, you know why this gen was gimped by the 360's inferior format. Cause they didn't go the route Kojima did with there games, they gambled and lost.

GTAV I'm calling it now is a install! I'm extremely happy they fixed there issue with the 360's DVD9! Its the only way to explain why its so big and...well a GTA game again!

While where talking about installs, MGSV is most likely going to be one too! The damn game isn't coming on 8 disk! LMFAO!

Knuxxx1149d ago

all the wars going on about better format, swapping discs, exclusive games, ect... Really guys? Are we STILL trying to justify buying our consoles when new ones will be coming out at the end of the year?? C'mon...

Chard1149d ago

That's kinda lame that MGS1 is not on the disc. Since I already have MGS4 I'm leaning back towards getting the previous HD collection that is pretty cheap now.

Good! I can't wait! ^~^

Aceluffy1150d ago

LOL

Kojima said it would require half a dozen discs on Xbox.
I'm sure not many people would want to pay over $ 300 for a game collection, even though this is THE ultimate collection :)

Simple solution, get a PS3 :D

Godmars2901150d ago

More likely because the fee MS charges for extra discs is still in place.

They probably would have to charge $300 to make up for it.
