Don't be so jealous, Sony doesn't own the franchise. Why don't you just get excited about the news instead of immediately concerning yourself over a console you don't own?

Why are 360 guys happy for this? I though MGS was just a movie. Wow how things change.

Quick to jump the gun there aren't we. It's called hypocrisy. I call it when I see it, just the same as when Mass Effect came to PS3 and a lot of people on the PS3 side jumped on the ME bandwagon. No different here. As far as fanboy getting mad, I do have to agree with you on that one. I understand how some fanboy would get upset at something like this while others that try to act neutral secretly dance for joy.
-Alpha  +   1637d ago

I dont mean to jump the gun, but seems that the first thing I see is negativity and disgust on it going multiplatform. I didn't see that with ME2, at least nowhere near the same extent.

I knew it. : )

I once commented how I want MGS HD collection of 2, 3, and Peace Walker combined.

Along with Silent Hill & Zone Of Enders.

Guess we have to wait for Devil May Cry, Onimusha, & Final Fantasy Collection at E3, I hope...
SCThor  +   1637d ago
"Another feature both collections support is Kojima's new "lifestyle" called "Transfarring." That is not a typo -- Transfarring. Using this system, PlayStation players can have one save that works with PS3 and PSP copies of certain games. Konami announced Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker as the first (and so far only) Transfarring capable title. Start your Peace Walker game on the PS3, copy the save to the PSP, play on the go, and then copy it back to the PS3 to pick up where you left off. "
DragonKnight  +   1637d ago
Ok, I know it's too late but here goes.

Truth is, MGS (note, Metal Gear Solid, NOT Metal Gear there's a difference) is for all intents and purposes a recognized Playstation franchise. Just because two "expansions" of the game appeared on two other consoles, doesn't negate that the entire series started, grew, and became great on Playstation consoles because of Playstation users. That's just a fact. You can try to deny it by citing jealousy and fanboyism, but it doesn't negate the truth.

If you look at the sales of MGS titles that appeared on other consoles, you'll see that it wasn't as well received as it was on Playstation. Again, no fanboyism, fact.

That being said, for those upset these games are coming to the 360, you shouldn't be. Watch as MGS will not do so well on the 360 as it will on the PS3. It's been proven with previous games that were former PS exclusives selling better on the PS3 than on the 360. Companies simply have to learn the hard way, but in the end they will make money off of this.

I seriously doubt that this collection will boast real success on the 360, especially based upon the trolling of MGS4 the 360 userbase was prone to.
RankFTW  +   1637d ago
Damn I just messed my pants.
Ares84  +   1637d ago

I don't see the negativity and disgust you are talking about. Other than one or two fanboys being a bit upset that the 360 is getting this collection, 99% of people here are just happy that we are getting such a great collection. I couldn't care less if they ported this to the 360 or Wii or PC or whatever system as long as I'm getting it on the PS3.
darthv72  +   1636d ago
if this is the 25th anniversary of "Metal Gear" where is the info on a Metal Gear "Rebirth" that has been rumored? Konami has done the gradius and contra rebirth games for wiiware and they are seriously fun throwbacks to the old days.

Metal Gear was as much a part of the NES days as it is now for the PS fans. A metal gear rebirth mash up of the original and part 2 would be awesome in retro style.

As for this HD series coming to the 360...will it be on a single dvd or will there be multiple discs? We can assume the ps3 version will be a single bluray.

I'm a little bummed they arent including the first MGS game in the box set.

Personally, I am actually kind of let down that MGS1 is not included, it feels incomplete to me as such, I would rather MGS 1 2 and 3 than peace walker, that said it was the controls that stopped me from beating peace walker so I will be pretty happy to get a full run through, I just think MGS1 felt more fitting
the_best_player  +   1637d ago

But no MGS4 for 360 still, I wonder why :)
Codeman420  +   1637d ago

Because they would have to put it on way to many disks for one and two they would have to rewrite the script and have the voice actors come back and redo the takes since there are many jabs at the 360 in the game.
-Alpha  +   1637d ago
Way too many discs? Maybe 2 or 3.

Funny that I didn't hear you guys complain about the chapter installs (which take much longer than swapping a disc), so why make a big deal about disc swapping?

MGSIV is perfectly capable on a 360 if all it takes are a few extra discs and a few jabs.

'Metal Gear' never started on PlayStation, but 'Metal Gear Solid' did.

I, for one, am sad that it has made a switch over to 'the dark side'.
DaBadGuy  +   1637d ago
Yes this is so awesome. Not only a MGS HD Collection, but ZOE too!

edit: the mgs collection is on 360 too? Thats pretty cool. For all the people getting pissy about it being on 360, mgs2 was already on Xbox anyway, and now everyone gets to play MGS3, which i think is the best in the series, and Peace Walker.

Codeman420  +   1637d ago
true but 360 players will still have to get a PS3 to play MGS4, cause that wont get remade for the 360. But cant wait, was hoping for Twin Snakes in there but oh well the rest will be just fine.
DigitalRaptor  +   1637d ago
Can't wait either. It's great news for PS3 and 360 owners. Although one of the best in the series, like you said (MGS4), I see remaining only on PS3.

So if 360 fans like the series enough, they will have to buy a PS3 to play that piece of epic! If they ignore it out of fanboyism, that would be their loss.
YodaCracker  +   1637d ago
I'd like to see these two guys' reactions when MGS4 is inevitably announced for the 360 or as part of a special collection for the next Xbox.
Codeman420  +   1636d ago
wont happen cause it is not cost efficient to redo the entire game for the 360. and im sure sony has some contract with Konami about the game, just like MS has contracts with Ubisoft on Splinter cell. and why would the bring out MGS4 on the next xbox thats just stupid they arent going to waste their time to bring an old game to a brand new console they would spend there resources on making something new and better.
DigitalRaptor  +   1634d ago
YodaCracker - your comment shows how much you want the game, and I don't blame you. If you're patient enough to wait for a game that probably won't even come to the console, then more power to you, but just know that you're missing out on a crucial part of the series - and one of the most epic pieces of the puzzle!

Sadly MGS4 probably won't see the light of day on any future console, since Kojipro are moving on to bigger and better things. MGS4 is already in HD. There's no rush for it to be remade for the Fox engine, or ported to 360 or its successor.

Note: I don't even own a 360, but fanboys' tears are just so delicious!

Croash  +   1637d ago
MGS and ZOE collections on both PS3 and Xbox 360? This November?

Well...that's....just awesome! Long live Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions.

Edit: It's too bad they didn't include Gamecube's MGS Twin Snakes, but at least Peace Walker will reach more hands.

I'll finally be able to play Metal Gear Solid 4. Wasn't going to do it without MGS 2. It's just perfect.

Since ZOE is also getting an HD port, would it mean Kojima is already developing ZOE 3?

Wish it was subsistence rather than snake eater with the updated camera and online mode but definitely a buy for me. Who thought we would see the day where MGS hd remakes would be on 360 but splinter cell hd trilogy would currently be exclusive to PS3. Now what would be crazy would be if MGS4 was announced for 360 at E3 yeah I said it but doubtful

I hope they have plans to bring MGS1 to PS3. Obviously MGS4 wasn't included because the engine doesn't work on 360. So I wonder if they are remaking MGS1 with that engine?
