Yep, thank you Konami for bringing this to the 360. First Witcher 2 now this. Good day to be a 360 owner :)

DatNJDom812697d ago

This must have been why Kojima was depressed. LOL. I kid.

TheDivine2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

Hell YES!!! MGS HD and witcher 2 on one day. Im going to love peace walker on my 360. MGS3 is the best in the series if you passed this masterpiece up PLAY IT. Kojima said all future games will be multi so MGS5 on 360 here i come....

darthv722697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

PS3 i was expecting but 360....? I wasnt expecting that at all. Seeing as konami and MS never released the patch to make MGS2 substance work on the 360 I all but figured Rising was the only MG title the 360 would see.

Now the question is....will the original MGS be the PS version or the twin snakes edition? I'm hoping for the later.

edit: peacewalker....WTH? I would expect mgs1 instead of peacewalker

EeJLP-2697d ago

Where the hmmm is MGS1 HD?

EeJLP-2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

Lost my day 1 buy without MGS1. Yea, I wanted Peace Walker also, but definitely not at the expense of MGS1 HD. Now I'll wait on it Used for ~$25.

The only way this can make sense is if MGS4: Substance or whatever has MGS1 HD included.. and that still doesn't make much sense.

It should have been MGS1-3, then Peace Walker either with Portable Ops or MGS4:S. Way to F up an awesome product IMO.

TheLastGuardian2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

This is BS. This should be a PS3 exclusive and should have included MGS1. Still Day 1 though.

Istanbull2697d ago

WTF Kojima? Why do you bring this series to 360? Just for that little bit of extra money? This collection shouldve been a PS3 exclusive.

Kurt Russell2697d ago

FFS Vherostar... Why the hell does it matter if it's on the 360 and people are looking forward to it? I've got a PS3 and was put off by MGS4's cutscenes and never saw it through... I did however love the first two and look forward to replaying them. I imagine there are a few 360 owners who feel the same... now wipe away those tears and man the fuck up.

FACTUAL evidence2697d ago

It's funny how most of these fanboys never knew xbox had half of the MGS series on their system back then....MGS was never exclusive to sony...This isn't even a surprise. I would be shocked if 4 went on the 360, or if 5 is MP.

sikbeta2697d ago

Freaking Day One Purchase! PW on my PS3, gonna see the difference between both versions S3 vs PSP by myself and enjoy those games non stop... congrats to xbox owners too...

Daver2697d ago

It might be a test to see if they will release MGS5 for xbox depending of the sales of this HD collection. Just saying.

Lifendz2697d ago

La Chance, why do you always have to inject fanboy B.S. into these sorts of articles. It's crazy how the people that always complain about PS3 fanboys are the ones that constantly try to get them all riled up. It's a good day to be a GAMER, whether you be a PS3, 360, or multi-console owner. No need to try and rub PS3 fanboys because these games are now multi-plat. Sheesh. If they announced MGS4 for the 360 you'd probably lose your mind.

bodybombs2697d ago

@lifendz i dont see him rubbing anything in ps3 owners faces at all. he seems to be excited that its coming to the xbox IMO, as am i, and i even own a ps3. now however all of my friends who dont will get to share my fun

gamingdroid2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

I'm excited MGS is coming to Xbox 360, but WT Fudge?

MGS1? Why didn't the release the first game? Not a real collection....

That said MGS was on Nintendo before even Playstation. MGS existed on Xbox in the previous generation so there is no real exclusivity there. It doesn't surprise me at all.

Kleptic2697d ago

An HD remake of MGS1 would probably be the hardest, as it would pretty require entirely new assets from scratch...although MGS4 recreated major sections of MGS1 in incredible detail, so maybe alot of the assets and tech are already there (the procedural snow effects for example)...we've seen a lot of HD remakes of last generation games and it seemingly isn't very time consuming...especially considering its usually just upscaled and uses nearly all of the original assets...

Its time for some of you to grow up...so what if its coming to the 360?...this is handful of AWESOME PS2 games...the more people that get to play them the better...

I still own all of them though, so not sure if i'd buy this...one thing that is definitely going to ping the PS3 crowd is that this HD remake stuff will have to support trophies...yet, despite all but a promise; MGS4 never received them...I haven't played peace walker though, so it may be worth it just for that...

otherZinc2696d ago

I agree!

1st "MEGATON" of the E3 season!

Sweet! I can finally play PW! Will be fun to go through MGS3 (my favorite in the Solid series) and MGS2 again as well.

Kleptic2697d ago

i'd put MGS4 and MGS1 at nearly a tie, but probably give it to MGS4 as its so much bigger and allows multiple ways to play it...then MGS3...then MGS2...2 is really the only one I didn't really enjoy...

mugoldeneagle032697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

Gonna be honest here. Never played the 2nd one. Little of the first, the 3rd and MGS4. For some reason just never got around to it.

Gonna be fun :)

Black-Helghast2697d ago

Xbox? XBOX?! What the hell..? Okay there goes my chances of Kojima showing up at the Sony E3 as a surprise and announce MGS5...

mugoldeneagle032697d ago

I think Sony knows just how much the Metal Gear brand means to the PlayStation name. I wouldn't be surprised if they did announce MGS5 as both a PS3/Vita title to put Vita & Transfarring on the map.

There's a small chance we could still hear something at E3. Though I think TGS would be a better venue to announce something like this. It would make a big impact on the Japanese community.

So heres hoping

DeadpoolBub2697d ago

Why can't Xbox fans enjoy MGS? I'm sure the PS3 guys wouldn't complain if they got Gears of War.

Black-Helghast2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

@DeadpoolBub:

No bro you got me all wrong, I'm not saying Xbox players shouldn't enjoy MGS, All I'm trying to say is that I had a feeling that Kojima would show up at the end of the E3 Sony conference and now that he made the MGS collection on Xbox my hopes went down. And we both know Cliffy B would NEVER release a GoW collection on PS3. That'd be dope and all but its never happening. At least I still have Uncharted 3 and Twisted Metal to look forward at the Sony E3 but now I really doubt Kojima would make a surprise and announce MGS5. =|

TXIDarkAvenger2697d ago

MGS2 was on the original Xbox. MGS was never a PS3 exclusive except MGS4. Stop being an exclusive whore. Kojima can still announce something big, besides if there's no MGS5 announced, we always have this awesome HD collection.

darthv722697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

they will use the twin snakes edition of mgs because it is already running in an updated engine. Same for the xbox version of mgs2 because it was a better graphically than the ps2.

MGS3 will be the ps2 version with upscaled graphics i am betting.

Now...I would love to see a metal gear rebirth for the wiiware. Take the two that started it all and mash them together in retro style like the other rebirth games konami released.

Ultimate metal gear info overload!

edit: boo...peacewalker instead of mgs1...wtf? Peacewalker may be a good game but it isnt mgs1 or twin snakes.

DigitalAnalog2697d ago

If you played the game, the opening sequence had a SONY "Walkman". I wonder if that would bode well for the 360 as it IS promoting a SONY product in it's game.

-End statement

seinfan2697d ago

Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow had Sony Ericsson devices and that game was multiplat.

NiKK_4192696d ago

I don't consider Sony Ericsson part of Sony

so MGS2/3 and still no trophies for 4, what a joke Konami

the "show" was fail, basicly just collections, silent hill trailer and new engine, like I care about the engine, noting new

I preffered last year's goofy show, this made me a disapoint

BlackTar1872697d ago

Max give it a rest he didn't say anything fanboyish is but of course you respond with something.

The 360 trolls are doing a bad job at convincing everyone this is a ps3 only site.

StanSmith2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

Gonna play these in chronological order come November! Can anyone tell me where Peace Walker slots into the story? I'm guessing the order goes:

Snake Eater
Peace Walker
MGS1
MGS2
MGS4

Is this correct?

Blacktric2697d ago

Yes that is correct, though you should add Portable Ops between Snake Eater and Peace Walker.

StanSmith2697d ago

Cheers for that.

Sadly i've never owned a PSP so i didn't get to play Portable Ops or Peace Walker but at least i'm getting the chance to play one of them now.

M-Easy2697d ago

MGS1 is not coming you know. U gotta play your old copy of that.

RGB2697d ago

The official order is;

Metal Gear Sold: Snake Eater
Metal Gear Sold: Portable Ops
Metal Gear Sold: Peace Walker
Metal Gear
Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake
Metal Gear Sold: The Twin Snakes
Metal Gear Sold: Sons of Liberty
Metal Gear Sold: Guns of The Patriots

BlackTar1872697d ago

Metal Gear Sold: Snake Eater
Metal Gear Sold: Portable Ops
Metal Gear Sold: Peace Walker
Metal Gear
Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake
Metal Gear Sold: The Twin Snakes
Metal Gear Sold: Sons of Liberty
Metal Gear Sold: Guns of The Patriots ?

Question 1: Is the MGS3 port of the much improved version with the much improved camera?

Question 2: Will Peace Walker have an updated control scheme since we'll be playing dual sticks?

@Solid_Snake-
Ports of last gen MGS games and a PSP game "= MS WON E3"?
Are you serious?

ShinFuYux2696d ago

Exactly. Are we getting mgs2:substance and mgs3:subsistence or just the plain, original versions?

Will MGS3:Subsistence HD have the two original Metal Gear Titles and Online like the PS2 version?

2697d ago
M-Easy2697d ago

Whats the "T" stand for on the PS3 box art? Its not on the 360 version.

squallheart2697d ago

Transfarring, means you can take your games on the go with your psp or ngp. Then when you want to transfer your save file to continue on your ps3 you can.

TBM2697d ago

Being announced for both consoles wont stop me from getting MGS, and ZOE collections for my PS3 since I played all the games for the PS2 with the exception of the handheld MGS games.

likedamaster2696d ago

Playstation platform receives a current exclusive(Mass Effect 2) and Xbox boys respond with a,"Everyone should enjoy this masterpiece". Xbox receives an old exclusive HD-remake and playstation girls get pissed about it.

Every gamer in the planet knows who the fanbabies are.

nskrishna22696d ago

Are you kidding?
360 fangirls (only fangirls) cried their eyes out that ME2 was coming on the PS3, while the 360 owners who weren't crying (a.k.a Gamers) said that people should enjoy the master piece..

Same from the other side too

showtimefolks2696d ago

get it on ps3. mgs is a great series i play it on PlayStation but it is great to see the fan base expand.

we all get to enjoy some old classics in HD what's wrong with that

i still hope we see mgs1 in hd along with the other psp mgs title in hd both of them could be released on psn/xblive

so please enjoy and let others enjoy

Getting this for 2 and peacewalker, 3 ill be playing on the 3DS

RevXM2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

Because of this Im not even considering getting a 3DS anymore.

All titles in the collection is supporting the Transfarring feature right?

For me transfarring = Ps3 + NGP.
And I sure hope all games have been uppgraded for dual analog gameplay if played on Ps3/NGP, free camera! FTW.
Im buying it even if it isnt anyway but it would be so badass if it had proper Dualstick gameplay like MGS3 subsistence and Mgs4.

Only downside is that the first game isnt being uppgraded, I mean most of the models and shit from the GC version would do then add AA and up the native res and maybe change it a little bit to fit dual analogs maybe.

VampiricDragon2697d ago

new suikoden, new metroidvania

would make there E3 the greatest

NoOoB1012697d ago

omg a new suikoden would make my year ><

Etseix2697d ago

peace walker for the xbox360? man.... if only i would 've waited a little more, instead of buying a psp only for that -_-
