Metal Gear's strong sales make a good case for HD collection remakes

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection sales are close to one million which could mean more of the same on the way. (Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, PS3, Xbox 360)

As long as "remastering" is up to quality.
Then we should be seeing more franchise collections soon.

and less original games fantastic

..MGS is one of the most original series of games ever created and tons of people were glad it was remastered into HD as proof with its strong sales.

They won't quit making new games so stop crying, HD remakes are awesome.

Or more money in the bank to risk on and original game.
I was thinking the other day of what game would make a good remake and i came up with 'how to be a compleate b@$t@d' on the spectum would make a great psn/live game,
It was about trying to ruin a party by upsetting everyone and sabatarging everything.

yeah thats why theres only been 1 metal gear on systems in 6 years
Blaine  +   1243d ago
Are you somehow trying to imply that the reason there's only been 1 new MGS game on a console, in 6 years, is because of the HD collection?

lol

Son, metal gear games are not milked. Kojima takes his time when making games, thus the reason why everything he makes is a masterpiece.

I think it makes a case for quality games being remade. I don't think every remake would have the same success. Also, they put this out on multiple platforms, which has helped it as well. Still, its a inexpensive way to make some profit. I don't think it costs very much to smooth out these games and throw some Achievements/Trophies on them.

I've only bought a couple of HD remakes, the MGS ones, Halo CEA and God Of War 1 and 2.

If they are worth owning I'll buy them, but I think there are a ton of really good new games out, so I try to stick to the present and look to the future, as opposed to being stuck in the past.

They better not be "HD" like Ico or Sonic Adventure.

I want my increased draw distance, 60FPS and 1080p.
nirwanda  +   1243d ago
Exactly sonic was a very lazy conversion
njdevil254  +   1243d ago
While I agree that lazy HD remakes suck...there was nothing wrong with Ico.
AusRogo  +   1243d ago
Didnt ico get praised because it looks like one of the best hd collections?
Inferno  +   1243d ago
*off-topic*
It's not that I care much, but why am I getting "IP Address blocked" from this site?
TopDudeMan  +   1243d ago
Yup, I must admit, I never knew MGS2 was so good til I played it in the HD collection.
opinska  +   1243d ago
I wish sega would remake Spartan total warrior, or at least put it up on the psn/xbox live store. Would sooo buy it day 1!
gypsygib  +   1243d ago
I think has more to do with the popularity of MGS. A lot of other HD remakes wouldn't sell as well.
