Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D: Trumped By HD Collection?

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.

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?

--Onilink--2519d ago

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

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:

8gb 3ds cartridge so 2 cartridge's if your lucky:

Here is snake eater 3ds vs ps2 notice ps2 is better:

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

badz1492519d ago

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!

--Onilink--2519d ago

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

stragomccloud2519d ago

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.

badz1492519d ago

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!

MaxXAttaxX2518d ago

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

EcoSos32519d ago

Thats why Im not getting any mgs.

firelogic2519d ago

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!

Godchild10202519d ago (Edited 2519d ago )

I thought it was five games and it was 50 dollars?


49erguy2519d ago

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.

SilentNegotiator2519d ago

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.

MasterCornholio2519d ago (Edited 2519d ago )

"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.

stragomccloud2519d ago


"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.

f7897902518d ago (Edited 2518d ago )

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.

Tito082519d ago

Actually the MSX Metal Gear & Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake......The MSX versions, not the NES!!!!!

cpayne932518d ago

No, Japan gets mgs1 but they don't get peacewalker.
