Metal Gear Solid is one of gaming's most iconic series, but it's hard to access on modern systems and more than deserves a rerelease.
Imagine a MGS collection done by BluePoint games where they take old games and they do something like what they're doing with Demons Souls?
They also did an amazing job with Shadow of Collosus
Bluepoint, Koji Productions w/DECIMA, GG all would be suitable candidates.
Wait Hold on Sony! First Devil may Cry 5 is digital only, at launch. Now metal gear? Please don't, Microsoft will turn the tables on you. They will get on stage and say this is how you share a game. Plus you may piss customers off.
There already is one. I have it on PS3.
Yeah that's the first thing that popped in my head when I read the title. There was already a legacy collection
Yeah, but that’s the problem. You have it on PS3. We don’t want to play the series on a console that is 6 years outdated at this point. Here’s to hoping for a PS5 re-release.
It's time for Konami to get their shit together and start making good games again.
Indeed. At this point I would settle for them just making games again.
No, trust me, don't settle. Look at reviews for the new Contra game. Yeesh!
I would happily pay for a collection of these games. And I mean HAPPILY. I miss these game so much. Wish they were easy to play on PS5...all in one spot...all in one collection. I have a friend that has never played them. Would be a blast to run through them together.
All i want is the remastered gamecube version of metal gear solid. If they make a collection please add that or just remake metal gear solid.
There a rumour going around that it will be PlayStation 5 exclusive press start Australia mentioned it on fb. Hope it true
Read my mind. I was just thinking about the MGS franchise and how we need a complete collection of all the games in one package. Also I would love a MGS1 remake for next gen consoles. Why hasn't this been made already? It's extremely frustrating knowing scum like Konami are doing nothing with the ip.
Only one I want re-released is MGS4 since I haven't played it. The rest..meh its already been released as a collection. Make a new game.
MGS4 was part of a collection, unless you didn't get the PS3 exclusive collection that also included it. It's definitely recommended if you want a game that ties up the plot points of the first three MGS games though. On the other hand, my main criticism is it's one of few games that really doesn't rest on its own merits. Like, you have to have at least played MGS1-3 to get what's going on in it whereas even a newcomer could hop into any of the previous games and not feel lost. But, if you've played all those games that shouldn't be an issue for you.
I had the one on X360 and the Vita. Missed out on it.
In response to your other comment, ah, yeah that makes sense then. MGS4 was only possible on the PS3 at the time, hence why it never got ported to other systems. There was the regular collection on PS3, 360 and Vita, but then there was one other one released later exclusively on the PS3 that was basically that plus MGS4 in a nice case with a slipcover (I'm not actually sure what that type of case is called, it's not a steelbook). When I got it I was wondering why there wasn't a similar collection coming to the 360 that just doesn't have MGS4, then when I opened it I realized that's what the regular collection is. There's a disc containing MGS4, and the disc that contains the other games is actually the disc you would get in the other collection. I agree that these games need to be re-released in some capacity. Konami can release nice collections when they try as they've managed to do with their 8 and 16 bit titles. At this point Capcom has run laps around them many times over. I'd just like to see Konami try in some capacity, whether it's with their old games, or developing new ones, but it's like they just don't care anymore.
Release on pc dang it!
You can with Xbox Smart Delivery™
MGS is my favorite game series of all time. I've bought multiple copies of almost every game in the series. I'm currently doing my 14th playthrough of MGS 1 right now actually, and its just as fun as it was during my 1st playthrough back in 1998! Being an old gamer, I have all my classic consoles hooked up to CRT TVs, the best way to play the earlier Metal Gear titles, but I know that's not something everyone is willing to do. I would love to see the entire franchise get ported to PS5 / Xbox Series X / Switch. There's a lot of money to be made here, but of course Konami doesn't care. :/
It is a no brainer. Sad it hasn't returned on PS4.
