Chris Buffa (Modojo): Like many 3DS owners, we can't wait for Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, Konami's long-awaited and re-mastered version of the 2004 smash hit, slated to arrive sometime in 2012.
"In fact, Konami has yet to officially announce the compilation for the U.S. and European markets." I'm pretty sure that's not true.
I want them ALL!
Konami has revealed a release date for MGS HD in north america. It's Nov 8, 2011.
Honestly, what I don't understand is why this game exists if they're doing the MGS HD Collection? Why release two versions of the game with different sort of graphical improvements in each version?
and even more if the HD collection is not Sony exclusive. They should just take it to the 3DS but instead of HD, make it 3D, its not like HD would make that big a diference on such a small screen
@onilink/iamtehpwn You guys are forgetting the psp has more power than the 3ds there is no way they could port over this hd collection to the 3ds.The reason for snake eater 3d is the 3d aspect and for the fact it was down scaled to work on 3ds.I know your going to say next just downscale the hd collection well hello then you half to rename that sense it wont be hd anymore and i don't think a 3ds cartridge can hold the collection. actually here: the collection is on 2dvd's: http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... 8gb 3ds cartridge so 2 cartridge's if your lucky: http://tinycartridge.com/po... Here is snake eater 3ds vs ps2 notice ps2 is better: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I will get both..! Because to see Snake eater in 3D is like a dream come true! .. HD collection I will get only for Peace walker, because it's the only one I didn't play
but it will be on a very small screen and the 3D effect will not be 'consistent' through glasses-less 3D on 3DS! not going to be THAT great of a dream imo!
who says the 3D effect is not consistent on the 3DS?? the effect is great, no problem with that, the only problem is if you are moving around which i dont really see a reason for you to be moving around playing this game. Still kinda makes sense to just get the HD collections, more games for the same amount of money... unless we are talking about someone who doesnt have a PS3/360 or Vita
@Onilink I think he might be referring to the few scenes where snake crosses bridges. Honestly, he's probably a Sony fanboy that is blowing one detail out of proportion. Or.... he is actually eating up the bull from the press statement Sony made about glassesless 3D.
it's said that MGS 3D is not even looking better than the PS2 version! you know what it's called for that kind of situation? a DOWNGRADE! and fyi, MGS collection is also releasing on the 360, so good job showing your hatred towards Sony, FANBOY! "the effect is great, no problem with that, the only problem is if you are moving around" I don't have a 3DS but I did try a few games demoed on it and guess what, I stand to my words that it's indeed not THAT great. and if moving around is a problem for a handheld, well may as well stick to playing home consoles! I play PSP games all the time and I know while playing I'm not static and moves A LOT! it's called mobile/handheld gaming for a reason you know!
I'm sorry, but you can't compare the 3D effect on a small 240p screen vs an HDTV. It's far less epic.
That dream will be sub par
Thats why Im not getting any mgs.
Obviously. Why would you buy MGS3D for $40 when you can get MGS2/MGS3/PW in HD for $40? And months earlier? MGS3D doesn't even look as good as the PS2 version!
I thought it was five games and it was 50 dollars? EDIT: http://www.1up.com/news/met...
Better deal than 3ds' all around. Plus 60 FPS and online play. Not attacking the 3ds, but it seems irrelevant. Nintendo should just focus on Wii U cause it seems the only good games on 3ds are re releases.
What the.... So $50 for 5 games, some with better resolutions and controls...vs...$40 for 1 game with optional 3D that requires complete stillness (on a handheld)? That's not even a question. That's definitive. I'm definitely getting the Vita. It's looking amazing.
"In either case, the remastered version of Metal Gear Solid 2 is based on its enhanced version, Substance. Likewise, Metal Gear Solid 3 is based on Subsistence, meaning players have free control over the game's camera. Possibly even better than that, it also means that the two bonus games included in Subsistence -- the original Metal Gear and its (true) sequel, Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (pictured in this story) -- are included in the HD Collection." Holy crap its also the best version of the game with extra content. Sounds like a really good deal too me and in my opinion its way better than just one game with 3D. 3D isnt worth having at the sacrifice of 3 other games. 1. MGS 2. MGS2 3. MGS3 4. Peacewalker EDIT: Oh it includes the 2 metal gear games on the NES as well. Which brings the number to 5 games. 1. Metal Gear 2. Metal Gear 2 3. Metal Gear Solid 4. Metal Gear Solid 2 5. Metal Gear Solid 5 6. Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker Sounds like a great collection to me Kojima is being unfair to 3DS owners with this.
@SilentNegotiator "complete stillness" is far from the truth. I think too many people blow the 3D viewing angle out of proportion. Incidentally, the vertical viewing angle for the 3D effect is quite high. Only the horizontal is somewhat limited. But not to any extent as to disrupt the 3D experience.
That's an amazing deal. I've only played MGS4 (too young when the others came out). I can't wait to play through the entire series. Maybe I'll understand what the hell brought everything together in MGS4.
And I think the US version will include redeem code to download MGS1 and it will include the originals MGS and MGS2 from NES.
Actually the MSX Metal Gear & Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake......The MSX versions, not the NES!!!!!
No, Japan gets mgs1 but they don't get peacewalker.
Now that there is a HD version for consoles and Vita, it will really overshadow the 3DS version.
After 2 years of Portable Metal Gears i'm ready for a Revisit on the Console, I played Peace Walker last summer, and Portable Ops this Summer, I loved them Both, Peace Walker more so, I just wish i could 'TRANSFAAAAR' my Peace Walker data to the 360 ... sigh....
The HD collection was pretty much the nail that made sure I did not buy a 3DS in the near future. Also, I will end up probably getting the HD Collection for both PS3 and PSVita. I will get the 3DS one day but at a much later date now.
MGS 3D was the game why you were gonna buy a 3DS??? out of all the games coming up, that's your defining factor in buying a 3DS?? kinda hard to believe..
Um no. Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney has yet to be officially announce in the US and when it does, it's still not in the near near future. Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance isn't going to be out any time soon either. So there is no rush for me. I had interest in MML3 but that's canceled. I believed the early rumors that there will be a circle pad. I tried the 3DS out, it failed to impress me especially the limited angle. No good games right now or by the end of the year that I really must have. I can wait on OoT since I have played the game before. Not really interest in Star Fox. What other titles out there are on the 3DS that is really big that has been release and will be release by the end of the year? Nothing. If the collection wasn't announced and Konami had no plans for that. I might have went out to buy a 3DS around the release of MGS3D since I never played the game but always wanted to. So like I said, the only game that would have made me go out and get a 3DS in the NEAR future.
HD > 3D
And for the $40 price mark.. you'll get 5 MGS games on the Vita, and only one MGS game for the 3DS.
50$ for hd collection.
50$ for hd collection. Obviously still a better deal. Edit: Crap double post. Oh well now I'm out of bubs.
Well, you get the added shaders thanks to the technology as well as 3D. But yeah, I really don't know what they were thinking. A few surfaces that look slightly bumpier/shinier are not as appealing as getting four additional games.
<-------- buying both Mgs3 is worth playing many times
Buying both?! Then you're an idiot
Then apparently I am too. Especially because I bought the original, and then later bought the subsistence version. I love MGS, and I'd love to have multiple ways to play~
you aren't a big MGS fan then (or big as some of us) :) I'm gonna support konami and will buy both too.. I want to play it in 3D and on 3DS
@Venox2008-I'm a big MGS fan & I ain't getting both, don't have to buy everything to become a fan!
3 HD games in one for the Vita for 40€ VS 1 game with 3D for the 3DS for 40€ Which one would you get? Also the vita has a second analog stick so that should be great for camera control. Also the beautiful 5 inch OLED will be much better for those types of games.
all this HD rubbish the 3ds has a better ppi than Vita ie it could look sharper if they use the same poly count ect which is more than possible considering revelations ect look HD/3D its all a load of rubbish the 3ds can get the HD collection aswell as it has the best ppi over 360/ps3/vita what a joke. what people forget is that 3ds version gets MGS4 controls and better textures and higher poly counts ect the Hd collection is the same old controls but in HD plus the Vita isnt HD end of if Vita is HD so is 3DS as the PPI is higher on 3DS this is a FACT no matter what people say FACTS are FACTS.
even though I'm a linguistics major, and I can't tell what your stance is because of the lack of punctuation. It makes the meaning of a lot of these statements ambiguous. I'm not insulting you. I'm really interested in what you're trying to say... but I'm having trouble understanding. Could you explain your statement?
If I'm right, he's saying that in 3DS version there'll be some extras than will not be in HD version, which is the same, but with HD graphics... 3DS version will use different engine with different controls and shaders + 3D... other thing I will get 3DS version, because I love Snake and especially Snake eater (I think it's the best in the series).. furthermore I will judge 3DS graphics when I'll see the final product and not a trailer, but a true gameplay by myself with original cartridge.. :) because sometimes trailers do look much worse than games
Calm down bro,can't understand a word your saying.
Ahem. 3DS Upper screen: 3.53 inches display (3.02 inches wide, 1.81 inches high) with 800 x 240 pixel resolution. 400 pixels are allocated to each eye to enable 3D viewing. Lower screen: 3.02 inches (2.42 inches wide, 1.81 inches high) with 320 x 240 pixel resolution. Vita: 5 inches (16:9), 960 x 544, Approx. 16 million colors, OLED Multi touch screen (capacitive type)
I've said this from the day that HD Collection was announced. Whats the point in the 3DS version of 3 when you can get MGS2, MGS3, MGS Peace Walker and the original Metal Gears in HD for either your PS3, Xbox 360, or the better designed handheld, PS Vita...all of which will have better visuals and dual analog support. It just makes the 3DS version pointless and redundant in my opinion which is why I cancelled my pre-order for the 3DS version and will pick up HD Collection on Vita. I'm in no rush though as I have MGS2, and MGS3 still in mint condition for my PS2, as well as a copy of Peace Walker that I got signed by Kojima himself when he came to London last year for the games launch. I wonder who will buy this. Because I'm pretty sure most 3DS owners own a PS3 or Xbox, or may even be getting Vita. But we'll see.
i'll get the Snake Eater 3D, but only because I missed it on the PS2 cause I was busy with Kingdom Hearts, Prince of Persia, Beyond Good and Evil, DMC 3 and other games.
