awesome i cant wait!!! =)

M-Easy1765d ago

That's $10 too high. The MGS series is my favorite of all time but both the GOW and Sly collections were priced right at $40.

2fk1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

to me it's worth every dollar =)

Nitrowolf21765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

yeah but you have to remember Peace Walker just released.
GOW collections are only 2 games, and the peacewalker game is more then just a port

@BrianG below

Thats true, i also think ithas to do ith the fact that Sony is publishing those ones.

BrianG1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

I believe those collections were priced at that point because they were published by Sony for the PS3 exclusively. Sony also prices their Move games at 39.99.

MS on the other hand prices Kinect games at 49.99. And this collection is heading to MS's Xbox 360 as well. So I guess Konami is just taking advantage of that.

EDIT: As Nitro said as well, good point, that game is relatively new. But Nitro the Sly collection was 3 games, so they did release a 3 game collection for 39.99.

thereapersson1765d ago

They released it on GameCube... was it published by Nintendo? It would have been sweet if they would have included an updated version of that game in this collection.

KeiserSosay47881765d ago

Completely agree. HD remakes shouldn't cost as much as a brand new PC game.

gamingdroid1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

I'm sad to see the first MGS isn't on there. Would gladly pay $10 more to get it as well and another $20 to get MGS4 on Xbox 360. ;)

Either way, I will just wait for the inevitable discount. There are few games I have to have day-1.

I_find_it_funny1765d ago

can't really complain, that price points is pretty ok

n4gisatroll1765d ago

Wow...greedy much? I owe every mgs except pw and even bought the essential collection along with subsistence and substance. I was going to get the hd collection, but it's this greed that's turning me off. 50 for an hd and trophy upgrade? I kinda feel like they know people will buy it just because mgs is in the title. Man...this made it harder for me to buy now, especially since mgs1 isn't in the collection.

firelogic1765d ago

@BrianG. Not really. The PoP collection and the Tomb Raider trilogy were both $40. Both not published by Sony.

BrianG1765d ago

@firelogic

True true. Good point as well. It must just be an agreement between Sony and the publisher in general then.

TheLastGuardian1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

I'm not buying this game because they're not remastering MGS1 and because it made MGS3 and MGS: Peace Walker go multiplatform. MGS2 was already on the original Xbox.

The Sly Collection is a much better value. It's a must buy now that Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is coming in 2012.

gaffyh1765d ago

IF it didn't have Peace Walker, it would be too expensive, but at $49.99, it's priced just right. Any more and I may not have considered buying it.

DarkSymbiote1765d ago

Its fine. Crap like MW are too high.

Bull5hifT1765d ago

If it comes out by next month Fine id be happy and willing to pay $60 for this cause i never got metal 3 Subsistance with the new camera angles.... But if i have to wait 6 months or more lile the Effin ico collection, Eff that i dont know if ill have the money by Then , only one of those collections thats a gaurantee for me is ThE GTA3,Vice,San-an ... .im Sorry

miyamoto1764d ago

It it were released on the PS3 only it might arrive at $40 only like most of the HD previous remasters. But since its multi-platform licensing issues might have jacked up the price.

DaTruth1764d ago

The only reason I can understand this is because Peace Walker is practically a new game, but if you already played PW, that puts this out of your price range!

I only played half of MGS3 and have all the rest of these in my collection now(recently played too), so this is a no buy for me!

Really wanted to finish MGS3 though; maybe I can find a copy somewhere!

ReservoirDog3161765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

Wait, it isn't MGS3 Subsistance? That's a little disappointing.

Favorite game ever is MGS3 though so it's easily worth it.

ShoryukenII1765d ago

What's the difference between Subsistance and the regular one? I've only played most of the first game (but I refuse to play number 4 until I catch up).

RevXM1765d ago

The most noticeable difference is the free 3rd person camera view.

they also had some extra sort of mini game modes.
Like extra arcade type missions.

vegetassj511765d ago

I thought I read some where that it was going to be the Subsistence version,

ahh here it is http://www.andriasang.com/e...

skyblue142131765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

@ShoryukenII.

Subsistance has(vs. snake eater):

- A better player camera position
- An online game mode(now defunct)
- More capture the monkey missions
- The original metal gear games: metal gear 1 and metal gear 2 would be played through an msx emulator.

The inclusion of the original metal gear games is the main reason to get subsistence, otherwise if you are not a fan of the original metal gear games then don't get subsistence.

+1 Helpful for vegetassj51

Thanks, I was worried. Glad to see that I won't have to play with the old camera when I'm so used to the good one.

Bull5hifT1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

Ohh thank you, now i lost intrest.. Main number 1 reason i needed it right now for me was the free camera angles , truthfully on my Backwards Compatible these are some of the games that look great with that upscaling feature... FF12 and Half Life and Leisure Suit Larry look like totally differnt games in HD

Perkel1764d ago

@ skyblue14213

you forgot:

- 3rd disc is DVD film with whole MGS3 campain played by devs and directed by kojima. I watched it and it was awasome !

Also 3rd Person Camera is main reason to get this version.

It's way better than top down version.

skyblue142131764d ago

@perkel

You must be talking about the rare limited special edition of subsistence which has a third disc called "persistence" which I think also included an early preview of metal gear solid 4 on the disc. I have the regular edition of subsistence which only contains 2 discs(I just looked at the back of the game case of my copy of subsistence as of writing this and it only says it contains 2 discs). I think that you are thinking of the rare limited edition of subsistence, because that version contains 3 discs.

monkey nuts1764d ago (Edited 1764d ago )

WOOT1/??? Thats the version I have then. I didn't know it was rare until you guys just mentioned the three disc thing. The cool part is I got it from GAME about 2 months before mgs4 came out, for the price of £25.99. I'd played 1 & 2 over and over on the ps1/ps2 but missed out on snake eater so wanted to get up to spec with the story. Gona go see how much this 'rare limted edition' might be worth. Cheers for the heads up. lol

NeutralGamer1764d ago

@skyblue14213

Actually the 3 disc edition is not so limited. It was the standard Subsistence in Europe.

Because the game was delayed in Europe, Hideo Kojima to make it up with making the limited Subsistence in US into the standard in Europe.

I agree with you. I paid for half-asses games that cost $10 more and I can afford this one when it comes out.

the_kutaragi_baka1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

cut your price by a LOT (50% or more) and maybe I'd think about it, but the current price is a joke.

SquareEnixFan1765d ago

Good deal. I'm getting this no matter what the price is.

ShoryukenII1765d ago

I'd rather have it at $40 but I've been waiting for this for ages. You gotta do what you gotta do. :p

Grave1764d ago

Agree. Totally worth it!!! cant wait.

news4geeks1765d ago

different from your usual "day 1, bestest game eva" chat.

pepsilover_20071765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

what are people complaining about the psp verson alone is around $30 and a ps2 set (with 2 and 3) is about 20 bucks, so not a bad deal considering they will be better versons of those games

raztad1765d ago

People (me also) were expecting the already common $39.99 price point set by Sony for remastered HD collections.

This could be a good deal for newcomers to the franchise but not for many PS owners. I already played through all these games. Want to revisit them in HD but I'll have to wait till it drops in price.
