Rumor: MGS3 online multiplayer not included in Metal Gear Solid HD Collection

Hideo Kojima has revealed that Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence will be the version to be ported to the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 via the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. However, it looks like the online multiplayer portion that was introduced in Subsistence (the original Metal Gear Online for Playstation 2) won’t be included.

Weak sausages. Weak sauce as well.

... I haven't played any of the MGS games yet, so I really wanted to start with the first one, in HD ofcourse.

MintBerryCrunch2693d ago (Edited 2693d ago )

HD textures and the low poly count in the game don't go together...idk why people aren't getting this

it just wouldnt look good


They most likely won't port Twin Snakes because it's not a proper Kojima was developed by Silicon Knights with some assistance from Konami...other than giving the final thumbs up before release, Kojima and Kojima Productions had very little to do with the game

if there ever was a re-release, it would most likely be on a Nintendo system...Kojima, from what i have heard did this as a favor for Nintendo

You can get it in PS Store as PS1 classics for PS3 and PSP. It should look alright on PSP.

It's a pity MGS1 isn't going to be there, I'd even have taken the Twin Snakes remake if it was possible.

creamsoda2693d ago (Edited 2693d ago )

IMO they should of ported the MGS1 Twin Snakes from the gamecube version and made it HD. Would be alot smarter.

KyRo2693d ago


I don't know if you we're aware but MGS1 was remade on the Gamecube with the MGS2 engine. It wouldn't of hurt to try and get that on it.

JAMurida2693d ago (Edited 2693d ago )


Make sure you play it in chronological order, which is:

MGS Peacewalker

That way you understand the story better.

tehpees32693d ago

I'll be sad if this is true

Yi-Long2693d ago

...I'll keep that in mind, although I doubt I'll play those old Metal Gear games... :)

hoof1232693d ago

@ theburnedman

You've got that wrong mate.

The order of the series chronologically is...

MGS: Portable Ops
MGS: Peace Walker
Metal Gear
Metal Gear 2

With Rising rumoured to take place inbetween MGS2 & MGS4.

CaptainMarvelQ82693d ago

How are both MSX (MGS1) and MGS2 in Subsentence when MGS2 is offered as another game?

please clarify,because i really want to play them all but a bit confused

They were both included on the Persistence bonus disk of the MGS3 re: release ( which was called subsistence.

MGS3 is easy to find. But MGS3: Subsistence is fairly rare. I managed to pick a copy up on ebay and you might have the same luck. If not, you can probably play Metal Gear 1, and Metal Gear 2 on an emulator.


READ my post before you comment. Your ignorance outstands me.

I have heard of and played the original MSX versions of Metal Gear, and included them in my list. METAL GEAR 1 & METAL GEAR 2: SOLID SNAKE, are chronologically SET inbetween Peace Walker & MGS1.

Here, I will simplify the list for you.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, (1964)
Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, (1970)
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, (1974)
Metal Gear (THE MSX game which you think I've never heard of), (1995)
Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (The second MSX game which you think I've never heard of), (1999)
Metal Gear Solid, (2005)
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, (2007 & 2009) (Tanker & Big Shell Chapters respectively.)
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, (2014)

That is the series in order chronological in terms of story.

As for the order in which they were RELEASED.

Metal Gear (MSX) (1987)
Metal Gear 2 (MSX) (1990)
Metal Gear Solid (1998)
Metal Gear Solid 2 (2001)
Metal Gear Solid 3 (2004)
Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops (2006)
Metal Gear Solid 4 (2008)
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (2010)
Metal Gear Solid: Rising (2012)

I_find_it_funny2693d ago

even Kojima doesnt know the order

49erguy2693d ago


That's the order in which they were released, not the order of the story.

Kudos for including the old NES and PSX versions though.

creamsoda2693d ago

LOL don't worry Metal Gear Solid confuses everybody from time to time.

CaptainMarvelQ82693d ago

so you guys mean that all the part's will be in this collection,right?
and Thanks

sikbeta2693d ago

Everyone wants an HD version of MGS, but it'll not work, it's a PS1 game, how much improvement would have? I don't think much, unless Koji-Pro re-work on it to make it better, but if that's the case, better start from scratch and do REMAKE, MGS:TS is a good game, but it's not a proper remake, it wasn't even made by Kojima :P

Yi-Long2693d ago

... they could do a HD version of the Cube-release of MGS1.

Ocelot5252693d ago

MGS(PS1) will be included as download code:

※ METAL GEAR SOLID (Gemuakaibusu Edition) Includes product code (PS3 ® version only)
※ This portable game software, PS3 ® transfer between the rings (save data sharing) will be implemented
※ PlayStation ® Store, Xbox Live ® ARCADE download sales will be in

NarooN2693d ago

A PS1 upscaled to 720p or 1080p won't make it magically look good -- in fact, it'd look much much worse. Those super-low res textures and simple polygons would look like a joke in an HD resolution.

They'd have to re-do pretty much all the textures and models from scratch, and that'd basically be enough work for a whole new game.

Like some have suggested, a Twin Snakes port would've been decent, but I think that game is owned by Nintendo, so KP most likely didn't see it worth it to buy it from them just to put it in an HD collection.

darkdoom30002692d ago

So much confusion. lol. good job hoof. I thought the timeline was pretty easy to follow.

Also, with this collection; I will have nearly every cannon MGS game on my ps3.

MGS2,3,PW on collection
MGS1 via psn
MGS4 via bluray
MG1 & MG2 via collection in sustinance/snake eater

the only one missing would be portable ops. I have it on PSP though. It's not too intergal to the story, only having a couple of things that effect the cannon.

jony_dols2691d ago

Most people here are forgetting that MGS Portable Ops also had a decent storyline that tied in with the series canon.

It chartered the beginning of Naked Snake's defection, and it had the same comic book style cutscenes as PW.

Slightly repetitive at times, but it was a true MGS with all the stealth & action mechanics that we love from the series.

Lol this is a rumour they started themselves, are you surprised if the online of MGS3 is not in the Collection? Are the actual servers still open?

JAMurida2693d ago

Makes no sense that MGS 1 isn't in the collection if the collection itself is true.

darkdoom30002692d ago

I heard the jpn version includes the download voucher for MGS1. I hope/suspect it's the same situation worldwide (PS3 version ofcourse)

Slugg3r2693d ago

I'll be sad if the MGO1 won't come with the game. It was the only true online MGS among MPO's online. Those of MGS4 and PW just didn't have the original feel, they just felt like regular TPS with some MGS elements
