Is it bad that I've owned a PS1, 2, 3 and PSP but never touched an MGS title? If this is true I think I may take a dive...

Yes...yes that is quite bad. Some of the best games around.

This would be an amazing collection to get, even though I've played all the games. Would love to replay them.
thehitman  +   1775d ago
I never touched a MGS game
until MGS4 idk how the others was but MGS4 was 1 of the most unique and top games out on the PS3. If i had to make a top 5 list MGS4 would be in there somewhere.
NateCole  +   1775d ago
It depends on the time of gamer you are. If you like a complex spy/thriller action drama story then you owe it to yourself to invest time in MGS.

Its the type of game that requires a lot of time investment and once you get it its the best there is.

Just having MGS in HD would be incredible. Hands down my favorite part of MGS4 was the return to Shadow Moses. It's the best game in the series and I would love to go through it again with an updated engine and sound. Hopefully they'll make them all 3rd person instead of being stuck to the overhead camera.

If they do, I hope it's the expansion versions (So Substance with all the extra stuff instead of Sons Of Liberty, Subsistence instead of Snake Eater).
DaReapa  +   1775d ago
Agreed. And who knows - if this becomes true, and they do release Subsistence, maybe Konami will re-open the servers for MGO (the original). I hated when they shut down the servers at that time.
TheDeadMetalhead  +   1775d ago
Then it would come with the MSX Metal Gear games as well, right? Awesome.
ThanatosDMC  +   1775d ago
Yep, they're the best version. Though in Subsistence The End was easier to kill since you can see the foot prints, the lens flare, the parrot, the ZZZ, etc so much easier.

This would actually be good for me. My 60GB PS3 just YLOD'ed for the second time. Enough's enough, getting a Slim PS3. But my favorite game ever's MGS3 so I won't be able to play it. But if this happens then it won't really be a problem.

Pity me guys, I just started LBP2 too.

Sony EU in an interview (2010):

“The God of War Collection had reached almost a million copies sold just
after the holiday. Shortly aftter that Activision, EA , UbiSoft, Konami,
and SquareEnix were all on board to issue ReMastered Edition of their
best Playstation 2 Games.”

“The industry's best developers are ReMastering their best games. Prince of
Persia, Shadow of Colossus, and ICO are just the beginning. When fans
see what Konami's doing to the Metal Gear series, and what Square's
doing with Final Fantasy, they're going to be very happy.”

I hope they give the first 3 a behind-the-shoulder view instead of the original top-down view.
Finalfantasykid  +   1775d ago
I think MGS3 subsistence had a behind the shoulder view, but it would be nice to have for MGS1 and 2. Or at least have a first person view for MGS1 for all weapons.
Man In Black  +   1775d ago
MGS3 didn't have the over the shoulder view, but it was the first to have a fully 3D camera (introduced in the expansion, Subsistence). Implementing it would be a bad idea, because they're not designed for it. Just look at The Twin Snakes, a remake of the original using MGS2's new gameplay mechanics. Some boss fights, like The Revolver Ocelot one, became piss easy due to the gameplay not being adjusted to accomodate the new mechanics.
DaReapa  +   1775d ago
@ TooTall19
I hope they would leave MGS1 in its current view. We don't need an HD version of Twin Snakes.

Natsu89  +   1775d ago
Why not? Thats the reason behind a remastering a game! Upgrading the visuals.
DaReapa  +   1775d ago
I say this because, as it has been mentioned in earlier comments, the over the shoulder view in Twin Snakes diluted some of the challenge for MGS1 because the original game was designed with over head perspective in mind. Meaning I was only referring to the viewpoint/perspective of Twin Snakes vs MGS1 in my previous comment. The graphics for Twin Snakes, on the other hand, I'm perfectly fine with Konami giving an HD makeover.

Will this be the first of the metal gears with trophy support? Hope so, because I am still waiting to justify beating the game( mgs4) on big boss somehow.

Does twin snakes stack up well with the playstation original? Because if so, I think I would want that in HD instead of the old one. Just asking.

I hope this is true, the reason I never got MGS4 is that I've never played the other games before. The story seems to confusing to just read it off the internet

It is worthwhile. The God of War and Sly Collections are awesome in HD and at 60 fps. The Team ICO collection will be amazing as well.

PS2 games look like garbage on PS3 anyway. Even when upscaled, they're still a jaggy, low-res mess.

HD collections are great and there should be more.

Wouldn't it be just the PS2 MGS games? If so then wouldn't that eliminate Metal Gear Solid? I doubt this is true at all and more a case of wishful thinking.
PirateThom  +   1775d ago
Port the Twin Snakes, remove the Nintendo references?
Roper316  +   1775d ago
I guess they could do that Thom. Wonder if porting Gamecube code to PS3 code would be harder, easier or the same as porting PS2 coding. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
Dysmorphic  +   1775d ago
I wouldn't want Twin Snakes included; the original Grey Fox voice actor was absent from it. That's reason enough to use the PS1 version.
Ocelot525  +   1775d ago

easier, the camecube was(altough more powerful) much closer to PC hardware than the PS2
Klepto  +   1775d ago
Why would that make it easier? The PS3 architecture is about as far from a PC you can get while the PS2 and PS3 actually share slightly similar design in their CPU's.
Ocelot525  +   1775d ago

the PS3's vector processors are very different from PC CPU's but the main proccessing unit is not so special(powerPC architecture, same basic instruction set as the GC,wii,360 and PowerPC based macs). Also the GPU is just the same as one of a PC(based on the nvidia G7900/7800)

It's very likely they won't use the vector processors(aka SPU's) in the MGS collection. The main processor(without SPU's) + GPU is sufficient to run MGS trilogy HD in 1080p@60FPS,4xAA,4xAF with updated textures and better mipmapping. The orange box which had much better graphics than the mgs games also didn't use the SPU's(the framedrops are due to memory leaks, and generally bad and quick coding)

The difficulty of porting is also largely based on the code itself. Games completely written in assembler are VERY difficult to port, this is why some PS2 games will prob. never have a second life on the PS3. Games completely written in C however are much easier to port(cf. GoW collection)

akiraburn  +   1775d ago
This would be very interesting if it proves to be true. I say this because if you look back about two months or so ago, there was an article posted on a site that was claiming they had an interview with a Sony associate, and in the article where they were discussing backward compatibility and issues pertaining to that (which ultimately lead to the discussion of the HD collections), the Sony rep mentioned something along the lines of " will be really interested in what they're working with for the Metal Gear and Final Fantasy franchises". So provided that this turns true, it may very well give reason to believe that the article was indeed legitimate, and that there should be a Final Fantasy HD Collection in the works as well. That would be quite interesting to see.

EDIT: Found the link actually for the article -
