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.

to me it's worth every dollar =)

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.

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.

I wish this collection had Twin Snakes, or at least a remastered version of MGS 1
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.
KeiserSosay4788  +   1271d ago
Completely agree. HD remakes shouldn't cost as much as a brand new PC game.
lil Titan  +   1271d ago
its worth it
gamingdroid  +   1271d 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.

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.
firelogic  +   1271d ago
@BrianG. Not really. The PoP collection and the Tomb Raider trilogy were both $40. Both not published by Sony.
BrianG  +   1271d ago
@firelogic

True true. Good point as well. It must just be an agreement between Sony and the publisher in general then.
TheLastGuardian  +   1271d 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.

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.
DarkSymbiote  +   1271d ago
Its fine. Crap like MW are too high.
Bull5hifT  +   1271d 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
miyamoto  +   1271d 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.

DaTruth  +   1270d 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!
ReservoirDog316  +   1271d ago
Wait, it isn't MGS3 Subsistance? That's a little disappointing.

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

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).
RevXM  +   1271d 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.
vegetassj51  +   1271d 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...
skyblue14213  +   1271d 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.

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.
Bull5hifT  +   1271d 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

@ 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.
skyblue14213  +   1270d 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 nuts  +   1270d 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

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.
elmaton98  +   1271d ago
I agree with you. I paid for half-asses games that cost $10 more and I can afford this one when it comes out.

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.
thebudgetgamer  +   1271d ago
i deem this price to be,
fair.
RockmanII7  +   1271d ago
I never played a MGS game so I really want to get this, but I've never played a MGS game so since it starts with MGS2 I assume I will have trouble following the story.
PirateThom  +   1271d ago
Do you have a PS3 or PSP? You could grab MGS1 off the store. It's also on PC (with a version on Game Cube)
RockmanII7  +   1271d ago
I don't have either lol, my plan is to buy MGS1 and play it on my PS2 or if it gets to late do something similar to what thebudgetgamer posted and just get as summary of the story.

@Rockman

If you want the ENTIRE story start from the NES versions, then work your way up that way you have the entire story from the very beginning. A big mistake people make is starting from Solid then play the other ones; the NES versions actually tell of what happened up to Solid, then the Solid series go on from there.
PirateThom  +   1271d ago
I would actually play the MSX versions, the NES version of Metal Gear is broken and Snake's Revenge isn't canon.
hoof123  +   1270d ago
I'm sure I read somewhere that the collection comes with a downloadble code for MGS1 from the PSN store. (If you get the PS3 collection obvs.) Don't hold me too it, but I do seem to remember reading that somewhere.

Edit: Just saw that you said you didn't have a PS3.

It's expensive and while I wholeheartedly agree it should have been 40$ I can understand the pricing and will still purchase it.
Nate-Dog  +   1271d ago
Isn't that cheap? I thought games in the US were around $60 usually.
wolokowoh  +   1271d ago
Yeah but collections are usually 40 dollars. Even Tomb Raider Trilogy which was 3 current generation games, a PS3 game(Underworld) and two Xbox 360 ports(Anniversary and Legend), was only 40. Sure Peace Walker will have extra content but that doesn't justify 10 dollars until that content is specified. If it's a lot of extra missions, I'll consider it(I already have all of the games). Otherwise, I'll pick this a few months after release for 30-40 dollars from Amazon.
Nate-Dog  +   1270d ago
Oh I see, fair enough then. Although in fairness Sony/Konami know they can get away with this pricing because it will still sell bucket loads so can't say I'm massively surprised.
TheCrazyMerc  +   1271d ago
This is cheap especially the fact that Peace Walker was recently just released. The price is worth it. So stop the bickering and get over it, it won't help change the price.

Seijuurou  +   1271d ago
From the title I'm assuming these are HD remakes which would make the price fair for the amount of work put into this. 3 games for $50 isn't bad given the quality of the games. MGS:SE alone seals the deal for me.
femshep  +   1271d ago
ehhhh alright

39.99 would have been more idea but for Snake...its worth it
Soldierone  +   1271d ago
Geez...I guess this won't be a day one pick up after all. I was expecting 40 dollars. I love MGS so ill get it eventually, but since its coming during the holidays ill wait for a deal on it first.
Karich85  +   1270d ago
Why? Because it's an extra 10 bucks............10 bucks... get out of here douch, I might wait for a price drop too, only cause I have the games already, but at the same time, that is a hard package to pass up so it still might be a day 1 (lol, or whatever you kids call it these days), week one, whatever.
Soldierone  +   1270d ago
Lmao...you get a high five for best comment of the day. Being a douch for saving money, not that I have a MGS avatar and didn't explain why I'm waiting or anything...the internet will never fail to impress me.
SageHonor  +   1271d ago
Just like the Sly collection and prince of persia trilogy... ill wait for the price to drop.... Smart business move.. Too many MGS fans so of course they will buy the game at 50 bucks..
Soldierone  +   1271d ago
I actually found the Sly collection on clearance at Target for 15 dollars lol....Its a random area in Target, they put "damaged" games there. Basically the case is just torn or they have to clear a little bit of the back stock.

Inflated price? Mgs2 and mgs3 were both 50 new when they came out, and mgspw was 40. These versions are superior to those and you get all for 50.

BC or PS2 system is the way to go.

PW is a year old game so I wouldnt considered it a recently released game. Isnt the game $19.99 new?

pretty much, you ppl are buying trophies.
solidsnake222  +   1271d ago
This is old news, so it certainly doesn't deserve to be on the top 5 hottest articles. And $50 is very fair for what could be the best collection ever to be released.

im kinda getting tired of these HD remakes, but then again maybe its the MGS one that isnt interesting to me. I played the GOW HD remakes and I didnt care for them, but I really dont care for the series at all, kinda like MGS, but RISING looks awesome, and sons of liberty was kinda fun as well as snake eater. Im kinda interested in sly cooper hd remakes and the shadow of the colossus HD remakes, but not the MGS ones.... : / jus my opinion
Deathcakes  +   1270d ago
Well of course you're getting tired of HD remakes when they only release remakes of games you don't like all that much. Personally, I'm a huge MGS and GoW fan for example so the fact that both will see HD releases in the near future (GoW's PSP games were coming to PS3, yes? :S) is just plain awesome for me. Just out of curiosity though - Which games would you like to see HD releases of?
kamakaz3md  +   1270d ago
idk, id have to think, but 1 series that came to mind was jak n daxter...
