I'm kinda disappointed that MGS3 subsistence and MGS2 Substance wern't in that collection instead of the originals....

Can you explain transfaring one more time?

Hopefully the titles on the box are just artistic license and these are actually Substance and Subsistence, not Sons of Liberty and Snake Eater.
Yeah, I'd definitely have to imagine that they are. They said directly that the games will use the right stick for camera controls, which was one of the main changes in the MGS3 re-release. 
 
 I love MGS3 and it will be cool to have it on modern consoles, but I'm looking forward to having Peace Walker on a device that I can actually sink some time into.

Alright Konami, you win. Here's my damn wallet. But I'll have you know that if only you had included the PS2 Suikoden games in this HD remastering plan, you could've had my firstborn child as well.

#57 Posted by Coleslaw893 (439 posts) -

Man, I JUST bought ZOE and ZOE2 for a reasonable price...oh well. Just super stoked about Peace Walker, will definitely pick up the MGS collection too.

#58 Posted by Enigma777 (6224 posts) -

Will def pick up the MGS and ZOE HD collections. That reminds me, I still have a sealed copy of the Essential collection I picked up for $10. I wonder if it's worth anything now...

#59 Posted by Omega (871 posts) -

I think that HD re-releases are a win for everybody. The publishers/developers can get some extra money for a relatively small amount of effort, and people can get a second chance to play those hard to find classics like Zone Of The Enders 2. 
 
I love this trend and I hope it keeps going. If I had one complaint though it would be that they always release at $40, I think $30 is more my taste. Especially when its a 2 game release (God of War) instead of a trilogy (Sly Cooper)

#60 Posted by FinalBoss (130 posts) -

Yes! Finally they are releasing the MGS HD collection. Disappointed they are not including the original MGS but it's still great news.

#61 Posted by metalsnakezero (2571 posts) -

I'm happy to hear this. ZoE I really wanted to own and now I can in HD.

#63 Posted by SomeJerk (3559 posts) -

Hope MGS3 in the pack has "Substinence" or whatever it was fixes to the gameplay and extra material, I would love to buy this, but not the default normal version. Things are so much better with the Sub one.
 
And it is an amazing game, even on it's own. Stands strong in comparison to what we have today, in fact it might stand a little too strong.

#64 Posted by ate_bit_zombie (6 posts) -

OMG YES!!!! SH 2, and 3!!!!

#65 Posted by gbpackers94 (124 posts) -

Awesome news. I just don't understand why the MGS collections doesn't include MGS1 instead of Peace Walker. Also I wish Silent Hill included the 1st and 4th games also. Whatever though, this is a good start to E3.

#66 Posted by ervonymous (1299 posts) -

I played through the first ZoE so many times.. Never warmed up to Dingo but the second was impressive for a PS2 game, escort missions were no fun though.

#67 Posted by PandaShake (414 posts) -

I'm really excited tor the ZOE collection. Never played the first one so this looks like a good buy

#69 Posted by MJHAYLETT (458 posts) -

being a MGS whore I will buy the MGS HD Collection but that was about it from the Konami Presser for me.

#70 Posted by Hzaife (166 posts) -

Wish they had the first Silent Hill and Metal Gear, but beggars cant be choosers
 
No Silent Hill 4?

#71 Posted by AuthenticM (4243 posts) -

I fucking love you Konami.

#72 Posted by TheHBK (5657 posts) -

Dumb.  They wont even put the work in for the PS1 games which are the best.  A MGS collection without MGS1?  Are you joking?  They already re did a lot of the work for the Gamecube release.  Maybe it has something to do with Nintendo Exclusivity.  But while they say these will not be emulated, they will be ports and so just higher resolution and thats it.

#73 Posted by briangodsoe (498 posts) -

I'm pumped to have MGS3 on a system I own. Also excited to give MGS2 the second look that i've neglected to give it after all these years.  Peace Walker is cool too, I never did finish it. Analog sticks and(hopefully) Xbox Live support for the co-op will make it a better experience. 

#74 Posted by BIGBADGREG (12 posts) -

SOLD.  
 
End post.

#75 Posted by gamb1t (992 posts) -

i was about to start playing mgs3 dont know if i should just beat it now or wait for the hd remake?

#76 Posted by RoyCampbell (1092 posts) -

Now that LA Noire is out and has been out for a while, the phrase "My body is ready" is no longer exhausted by yours truly.
 
So... my body is ready.
 
Ahhh, feels good to say that again. 5 month wait, though. How long can I be ready?!

#77 Posted by fenixREVOLUTION (745 posts) -

This was probably the best things they could've announced anyways for me personally, so I'm glad to hear this.

#78 Edited by Roger778 (960 posts) -

This is awesome news.  I have never played any of the Metal Gear Solid games because they were all for Playstation.  I'm disappointed though, that they're not going to remake Metal Gear Solid 1, but I'm very excited regardless.
#79 Posted by umdesch4 (787 posts) -

Not that I'm really caring a whole lot, but is there anywhere to watch/download a reasonable quality version of the full 55 minute video? IGNentertainment has a 360p (ugh!) version on youtube, higher quality on their own page if you pay for a membership (yeah, right!), and Konami's website is endlessly timing out (doh!).
 
So far I don't see any torrents either. I'd like to see this in a quality high enough to actually make out some of the text, but I'll be damned if I'm gonna pay to see an hour long ad.

#80 Posted by jkuc316 (1002 posts) -

Best news I got this week.  But why is the release date of MGS HD collection on november?! I might have to miss buying BF3...

#81 Posted by MEATBALL (3822 posts) -

ZOE 2 in HD, can't stop drooling at the thought.

#82 Posted by Cazamalos (987 posts) -

i don't know what to think, i really want to play peace walker with proper controls but i'm not sure if i want to pay for mgs2 and mgs3 again, i guess if they price it right i will be all over it,  
i don't care about ZOE but i'm already looking where i can pre-order the silent hill HD "collection"

I agree completely. I guess Kojima always has to get something wrong.  
 
Anyway, ZOE2 and Silent Hill 2 are incredible, and all of the other games are good to great too. 
#84 Posted by Eribuster (599 posts) -

Awesome news. Having twin analog sticks for Peace Walker will make that game even better.

#85 Edited by xyzygy (10590 posts) -

Did not see this coming for the 360. Totally amazing, and all of these remakes will have my money.

#86 Posted by Spike94 (758 posts) -

Cooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool
#87 Posted by ghostofst4rm4n (37 posts) -

Rocket Peace!!!

#88 Posted by blake_brown (137 posts) -

very excited about the collections.  too bad about the lack of Metal Gear and Silent Hill, the only games out of their respective series' that i haven't played.   i suppose both of those games would make for difficult... "transfar"?  i personally could care less about the lack of SH4, that game was not strong.  

#89 Posted by aidros (262 posts) -

Really excited about this. Finally get to play these amazing series, which will definitely be a day one buy for me.

#90 Posted by Mr_Faraday (246 posts) -

Sigh... why cant series collections ever be complete collections not just a bundle of a few of the games? MGS collection without MGS1, and Silent Hill collection without 1 or 4? Seriously wtf... both SH1 and 4 are better than 3. What a waste...
#91 Posted by StarvingGamer (8894 posts) -

Dingo Egret motherfuckers!

#92 Posted by Sooty (8195 posts) -

Lol@people saying MGS collection should be PS3 exclusive. Grow the fuck up.
 
I will be grabbing the PS3 versions to test this transfarring. Seems cool.

#93 Posted by solidlife (895 posts) -

Fuck off. wheres MGS1

#94 Posted by InfernoChaos (36 posts) -

Whats with people complaining about it not being a PS3 Exclusive now! These games have come out a long time ago why not let others enjoy it as well!
 
Anyways Zone of Freakin ENDERS and Peace Walker!? Can't god damn wait!

I want you people to say this out loud: 
 
I want less people to have access to amazing games. I care only about what console these games are on, rather than the games themselves.  
#96 Posted by Apollo87 (149 posts) -

I was really looking forward to them releasing MGS1 HD since I own the MGS collection but I just can't get myself to finish the first one due to PS1 graphics. 
 
Also recently bought both ZOE games though most probably will buy the HD collection if that's what will make them consider doing a new one.

I really thought we were free of these people on Giant Bomb. Oh well.
#98 Posted by Vitor (3076 posts) -

So happy I'll finally be able to play subsistence again. It was a b*tch to track down a copy of that for a decent price and I never really got into MGS3 as much as the others due to the God-Awful camera which felt fine in MGS1+2 but was positively antiquated by the third's release. 
 
Also, ZOE 2 in HD? YES OH GOD YES.

Agreed. When I was a kid I cared about SEGA vs Nintendo ... but honestly, grow up. If you wanna complain about shit like this join the PlayStation Blog or write to Official PlayStation Magazine. Petty ignorant fan boy shit.

Well alright! Silent Hill 2 HD! I wonder if they'll keep the sheer amount of fog that's in the game, now that the processing power of the system has increased to the point where it is no longer needed.
