Still waiting on Konami to put the MGS Collection back on digital stores

Nyxus129d ago

I know right? And rerelease the games for current gen systems while they're at it.

just_looken129d ago

Do not worry they will give use those pichincko remakes for top dollar soon.

Metal gear solid 3 in the fox engine looked/ran amazing but was sealed away :(


Sarcasm129d ago

I know re-makes and stuff have been played to death this generation.

But damn I wouldn't mind an MGS4 remake

gold_drake128d ago

i played it quite recently and it holds up very well

CantThinkOfAUsername128d ago

It does, but a remake will be available on platforms other than PS3.

itsmebryan129d ago

I thought the series would have sold more over all these years and different releases.

Ready4nxtgen129d ago

Yeah I would have thought over 150 Mil. Something.missing here

Nyxus129d ago

Metal Gear isn't that big, and there hasn't been a new release in years. Also MGS2 and 3 are still missing from digital storefronts.

shinoff2183129d ago

5 mgs games in total if I'm not mistaken. 59 60 million seems about right. Mgs is dope to some of us but it would be hard for a lot of regulars to understand

DeusFever129d ago

I would love to buy MGS4 but it’s still a PS3 exclusive.

JEECE129d ago

Although there are notable exceptions (GTA, certain first-party Nintendo games, Gran Turismo), as a rule games didn't sell as much in earlier generations as they have in the past few generations. So a lot of PS1-PS2 era titles that are viewed as seminal games didn't actually sell all that much by today's standards (yes, despite the large install bases of those systems lol). I remember a similar surprised reaction happening a few months ago when Square announced the total overall sales of Final Fantasy VII.

Some of the best fun you can have online was the first metal gear online and to a lesser, but still fun to an extent, MGO2. The magazine, CQC, stealth, and tactical play Vs real players is just a blast. Not to mention playing Snake vs everyone? Amazing. The game will never be the same without Hideo, but Konami can definitely update what’s already there and take my money.

ceyoga129d ago

You wouldn't be talking about the OG MGO that was included with MGS3:S would you? It's rare running into another former player. Those were some of the best memories of any online game I had.

Deathdeliverer129d ago

Yes my man!! That seems like the BEST game that nobody played! Tranquilizer pistol, drag the body to a corner and lay a girly mag right by their head so they wake up and instantly get caught by the mag. You could get real toxic if you wanted at that point, but man that game was incredible! The only thing annoying was that damn Konami ID

Did my part!

Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater Has the Perfect Chance To Follow Up on a Major Revelation

With a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3 on the horizon, game developers have a chance to tie in one of the series' biggest narrative reveals.

Just remake the game, don't add anything I don't trust Konami to change anything and pull it off properly at the same time.

So no thanks :>

God no, the studio in charge of this has made 2 games so far both of which were awful. I dont want these people to be rewriting anything. Just give us better visuals/controls and thats it.

Abear21104d ago

Giant snakes hiding in caves, this was the scariest part of the game, think I’ll pass on this one bc I can’t take that jump scare again l. 100 serious

Chocoburger104d ago (Edited 104d ago )

Not a good idea, and here's why:

- This is a medium budget remake, its going to be as close to 1:1 as possible from the PS2 game. This isn't a re-imagining like FF7 or RE 2 / 3 / 4. This is cheap-ass Konami, not actually willing to add much budget to their games, but only willing to go so far as to profit off nostalgia and not much more.

- The game is using the PS2-era voice acting, so adding new dialog or lore would feel out of place with the old recordings from 2003 - 2004.

- Changing the cut-scenes and the lore by adding new characters who don't belong in the background is absurd.

- This doesn't even make sense for a forward-progressing linear game. Only a few locations do you return to, you're not going to see the clean-up crew for most of the game anyway.

- Its a bad idea, the clean-up crew most likely arrived AFTER the mission was complete (and Snake flew away on the MIG), they're not actually tailing Snake throughout the entire freakin' mission. That's just a stupid concept all around.

I am in absolute agreement with the OP 👌

shinoff2183169d ago

I hate when I see single player games and see people begging for multi-player. Jeez guys it don't need to be on every game. Latest one I seen was atomic heart.
