Metal Gear Solid HD Collection PS Vita Hands-On | PixelJumpers

"Last year the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection released on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 and quickly attained the reputation of being hands down the best HD collection available. Not only did it include three of series best titles, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, but it did so in style. Cleaning up the visuals, increasing the texture resolutions, locking in a solid 60 fps, including trophies/achievements and even going as far as including the original MSX2 Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake games. It was truly a Metal Gear Solid fans dream and one that could only have been improved by the inclusion of Metal Gear Solid. At a recent Playstation event in New York I got to go hands-on with the most recent build of the Playstation Vita version of the HD Collection and to say I was impressed would be an understatement."

*Vitas screen isn't technically capable of HD*

*MGS 2 is running at a subnative resolution* <---My biggest issue, like wtf?

*Wondering how they can get away with calling the vita version the MGS HD collection*

It is "HD" in a 1:2 ratio. Since the Vita supports 540p, in 2:1 scale it is equivalent to a 1080p screen due to the pixel density and a smaller screen. HD is not an arbitrary term that is standard for a universal output.

For instance, a 720p game on a larger screen would have a lower pixel density than a smaller screen but would still be classified as HD, even though the IQ would be equal to a lower-screen res.

If it makes you feel any better just think of it as a qHD collection on a 5 inch OLED screen which will appear HD due to a pixel density of 220PPI.

Don't want. Needs Peace Walker. I find its absence very disapointing. I have the ps3 version anyway so I don't really need it.
