So I just noticed that Best Buy has the collection on sale for $34.99 for both systems. I already several copies of the different versions of both 2 and 3 on the PS2, so I didn't know if there was anything exclusive to the PS3 versions that would make me want to go for those? I noticed the 360 version has avatar awards, which sounds kind of cool since I love MGS. Any thoughts on if there is any meaningful difference between the two? Thanks.
@Djratchet said:I think it is Japan only unfortunately.
I think the PS3 version has a PSN code for MGS1, but that may have only been in the JP version.
Yeah, but the Japanese versions don't have Peace Walker. Whichever angle you look from. you're missing something, but rather a HD-ified console port of Peace Walker than a code for the original PS1 edition of MGS I say.
Well, especially since I still have my original PS1-disc copy of MGS... :P
Well I already have at least 4 versions of the original MGS on PS1 (original, green border, PSN copy, and the boxed set...maybe others?) so that wouldn't have been a selling point for me unless it somehow had trophy support...which it wouldn't have.
Thanks for the info! I think I might just go ahead and pick up this for 360 and then also get the Child of Eden copy they have (though at $40 I thought it would be cheaper).
Thanks for the help, duders.
@Daneian: but my question was that since I already own those games in their PS2 counterparts, and I also have 2 PS3s (1 launch BC PS3), I figured that 360 was the way to go since I already have so many versions of those games on Sony stuff. OH and MGS avatar awards :p
PS3 version because of the pressure based controls
Sounds like a pedantic difference, but this matters quite a bit. I think the pressure-sensitive stuff is assigned to the d-pad on the 360, but I could be wrong. Either way, it would make some of the more intricate CQC stuff a bit of a hassle on 360.
@Sammo21: Correct....only the triggers are pressure sensitive and the face buttons are not which is why they had to change the control scheme for the 360 to accommodate for that.....I haven't tried it myself but I heard the controls are kind of awkward on the 360 because of the lack of pressure sensitive buttons.
