AWESOME!!! " The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will contain Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. "
Peace Walker?! Awesome. I always felt the PSP controls were so-so. Plus---TROPHIES!!
Or achievements, whichever you prefer
@Funny 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?
I'm glad the 360 users are getting this too. you guys are in for a treat!
Peace Walker ported to 360
Why are 360 guys happy for this? I though MGS was just a movie. Wow how things change.
@DatNJ So, all 360 guys think the same thing?
@alpha 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.
@DatNJ 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...
"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. "
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.
Damn I just messed my pants.
@-Alpha 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.
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.
Everyone Alpha is great commentor. Please! My gosh he's a huge crybaby.
i believe "hell yes" is appropriate.
PS3 and 360 nice!! seems I upset some people :( *sad face* @best_player Im sure I'll live without the 3 hours of gameplay and will be able to watch the cutscenes online :)
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
@waseem335 But no MGS4 for 360 still, I wonder why :)
@the_best_player 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.
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.
I was sold with MGS3 HD alone. I hope they're the Subsistence/S version of the games.
Reason enuff not buy the 3DS version for mature hardcore gamnerds?
four games on one disc? very nice, i just wish they could have put MGS1 in there too, the gamecube version would have been a easy port too
Three games on one disc, not four.
yeah, my bad, although 4 would have been nice :/
I don't think the amount of disks where mentioned. It's probably one for ps3 and two or three for xbox.
hell yes! Peace Walker...I am ready ...I would like if they ported the GC version of the MGS1 remake though...
F*CK YEAH! Zone of the Enders too! ps: MGS on xbox? WTF Konami?! @below: mgS(mind the S) started on the PS1, and this series is associated with the PlayStation brand no matter how you spin it.
metal gear never started on play station infact MGS2 was on xbox 1
Ya MGS2's port was done by SK and also MGS3 is on the 3DS or soon will be, don't forget Metal Gear started on the old Nentendo systems. Never got why people thought it was exclusive.
Yeah well it's on the Xbox now, deal with it.
MGS a ps franchise WTF u smoking it was nin then multi last gen now all are on 360 and MGS5 and rising will be on 360. Why all the haterz?
"metal gear never started on play station infact MGS2 was on xbox 1"
Your right, Metal Gear was on Nintendo Entertainment System first.
'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'.
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.
That's too bad about the first though. :( Still, this is way better than nothing! :)
This is great news. But why no Metal shear Solid 1? It's a bit silly to miss out the first part.
Probably because its onsale on the playstation store as a ps1 classic and bundling it would undermine sales and cut into royalties...
Wait aren't these Kojima games? Why is he letting them put them on 360? I guess Konami is milking it like they are doing with rising. -We are watching
THERE IS A GOD!!
Xbox still misses out on the beginning and the end of the snake saga so who cares. Cant wait to platinum all these just hope they release MGS4 trophies to add to the collection
your a choob
I want MGS1!! :( but i guess we can download it of the PS-Store classics
HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLYYY YYYYYYYY SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT
Yeah that pretty much sums it up.
BOOM glad its peace walker not mgs1, shame from Sony pov loosing peace walker as an exclusive game, aaa well.
So xbox owners dont have the option of continuing their save files on the go with a portable device.. Ps3 and psp owners do.. That is probably the coolest feature about this announcement.. It pays to playstation! lol
oh yea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's it.
Yes yes yes yes this has been the best day of my life. Edit:Great Uncharted,BF3,Skyrim and now this the MGS collection,now if they would announce a new soukiden or hd remake i would be complete. Any word of a price confirmation oh wat the hell just take my money and give them to me:D.
I'm with you on Suikoden. I want the real 6th game, not tierkreis
Seriously, what's taking them so long with Suikoden VI?
Suikoden HD from 3-5.
Nah, I'd rather 1 and 2 get a remake. They are the best in the series. 5 is after that. 3 and 4 are meh.
But 1 and 2 are on the PSN, if I'm not mistaken. Suikoden 3 and up is just 3D and maybe easier to up the resolution.
OH YES, i'll be taking both on release day
Both Xbox and PS3? Even better, now more ppl can appreciate MGS's story :DDD
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
still can't play the all important MGS1 on Xbox.
Not hatin', just sayin'
MGS1 still has the best story imo after that it got really convoluted
@rage_s90 convoluted it may be but its a deeply woven story that flows through many important landmark moments in our (americas) history... Its compelling stuff and I for one cannot get enough :P
MGS2 made the story crazy. MGS1 and 3 were perfect gems, IMO.
Agree...Snake Eater was my favorite besides the first MGS on PS1
