Konami Goes HD Collection Crazy, Announces MGS, Zone of the Enders, Silent Hill Collections

#101 Posted by adamazing (78 posts) -

Yet another game getting a re-release...   
 
"We removed backward compatibility to lower the manufacturing cost of the PS3." 
 
Hmm... no.  How about so everyone can do this and make more money?

#102 Edited by jkuc316 (981 posts) -

Is this boxed versions? I really hate downloading shit with my shitty internet. 
 
This is weird, as (Most) Japanese publishers are multi-platforming these HD collections(Capcom, Konami), while Western publishers are making theirs PS3 exclusive(Ubisoft, Eidos)

They'd still be making HD collections even with BC in the PS3.  Halo is getting an HD remake despite the original Xbox game being one of the games that work in the 360.

And no one's forcing you to buy any of these HD re-releases.

wtf no mgs? ah well still buying.

#105 Posted by Toxin066 (3250 posts) -

Put me down for a copy of both. I could use a good excuse to replay MGS 3, and I never got around to playing either ZoE games - but I've heard great things.

#106 Posted by GetBentTheVideoGame (261 posts) -

I'm down. Peace Walker is a coup.

#107 Posted by Beforet (2911 posts) -

Ah, HD remakes, because easy money, easy money, easy money. At least those with only a 360 can play them now.
 
I'll buy it for Peace Walker, which I have yet to play because bite sized MGS does not sound appealing. As for 2 and 3, I might play them for the trophies, but otherwise I, and many others here I expect, can already play them at 1080p on my PC.

#108 Edited by PufferFiz (1375 posts) -

I hate this kind of shit. 
just because 90% of the commenters here started gaming when the 360 came out and bandwagoning the MGS4 on 360 rumor bullshit to be to blind to know mgs has been on xbox already.

that 1080p looks like shit, those textures from 2002-2003. Also, good luck finding MGS3 on your pc.

Yes! Zone of the Enders! Zone of the friggin' Elders!

#111 Posted by ch3burashka (4991 posts) -

They've now confirmed they're actually remaking the games, textures and models and all, which is more than can be said for a lot of previous "remakes", aka upscaled PS2 games. I'm super excited, though I'm bummed about the lack of MGS1. 
 
I've looked up the MG games, before the S, and they sounded cool. Maybe someday we can get an HD Remake as well, or even a 3PS based on those games?

#112 Posted by nick_verissimo (1380 posts) -

Had never been able to personally play the Zone of Ender games, so I am extremely excited for that collection to come out.

#113 Posted by HonoredSamurai (106 posts) -

I love Zone of the Enders. I love the Metal Gear Solid Series. Let's hope they keep the price point reasonable... 

#114 Posted by golguin (3830 posts) -

I'm all over the Silent Hill collection despite the fact that I beat SH3 like four times. It'll be great to finally play SH2 and see what all the fuss is about.

#115 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2495 posts) -

No matter what I say now, I'll probably buy all of this.

#116 Posted by Klaimore (945 posts) -

Excellent news I just hope that they release the first mgs hd at one point that would be great

#117 Posted by snake911 (164 posts) -

I would like to see ZOE 2 in delicious HD

#118 Posted by BasketSnake (1151 posts) -

Finally.

#119 Posted by FuzzYLemoN (1600 posts) -

Peace Walker in HD are you shitting me YUUUUUHHHH! *testosterone*

#120 Posted by MforMaverick (119 posts) -

Kojima sure knows how to rock E3!

#121 Posted by Homeslice (532 posts) -

It's really a shame that the original MGS won't be getting the HD current-gen treatment, but I guess you can argue that Twin Snakes was a current-gen remake, in the same vein as these ones.

#122 Posted by probablytuna (3523 posts) -

While the original Metal Gear Solid is missing, this is the HD collection I have been waiting for..... DAY. ONE. PURCHASE. 
 
Also, finally will be able to experience Zone of the Enders.

#123 Posted by Yodasdarkside (276 posts) -

Zone of the Enders in HD?  I'd take one home with me.

#124 Posted by MormonWarrior (2528 posts) -

The lack of the first MGS makes sense. You can already buy it super cheap in the PSone classics on PSN, and the Twin Snakes version isn't very good. I'm excited about Peace Walker but sad about the missing Portable Ops. Maybe that'll be in the PSP remasters?
 
Day one purchase for me, though.

#125 Posted by Hizang (8534 posts) -

Fuck yes! 
Thats all I can say to sum up my thoughts on this.

boooo MGS collection should be PS3 exclusive

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. 
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.  
I happened to say it in public and even got a blow job from a nice pretty girl girl. Your point?

I really thought we were free of these people on Giant Bomb. Oh well.
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.
Ahahahaha people fell for my sarcastic joke. I thought we were free of these people on earth. Oh well. My PS3 has been broken for months.  
 
Anyway, I love pandas. 
#128 Posted by chu52 (237 posts) -

fuck yes cheevos in 2nd runner. I LOVE THE FUCK OUT OF THAT GAME GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME 

#129 Posted by PandaBear (1295 posts) -

On a side note, those that are missing MGS 1, I totally agree, but Twin Snakes is NOT the best answer. Seriously, that game had Solid Snake literally doing backflips off missiles. And all the extra control stuff they brought over from MGS 2 made it too easy, like hanging off ledges. Those levels weren't meant for that kind of play. A HD remake, more true to the original, would be better.
 
Still, Twin Snakes would have been better than no MGS 1 at all... but whatever, this is a day one purchase anyway.

#130 Posted by Butano (1728 posts) -

Only MGS I played was 4, and that had me lost the entire time. It'll be nice to play an HD version of the previous games. Looking forward to it.

Not wanting to start a flame war at all, but I was responding to AmericanNinja and agreeing with your point. I'm willing to be the commenter after me was in on the joke too.

Holy shiiiit. I have fond memories of MGS2 when i was little. Never played MGS3 or Peace Walker, pretty awesome deal.

#133 Posted by Rawrz (590 posts) -

Not much of a collection when most of the games are not included. Though Ill gladly play Silent Hill 2 and MGS2 again. Never played MGS3 or Silent Hill 3 so that would be cool to do as well.

#134 Posted by Divisionbypr0 (6 posts) -

Kind of excited for the Metal Gear HD releases.  Would be nice to see Metal Gear Solid redone though.  I just started playing through them all again a couple weeks or so ago.

It won't be that hard, I named the file MGS3.iso.
#136 Posted by SSully (4117 posts) -

Well I will be buying both of these. It gives me an excuse to replay MGS2 & 3, and finish peace walker. Also it gives me a chance to get with silent hill, I always wanted to play the series. 

#137 Posted by President_Barackbar (3415 posts) -

This seemed like a huge cop out for Konami. Rather than make something new, lets just repackage and resell old shit!

epic fail, it was never released on pc.
#139 Posted by Chris2KLee (2328 posts) -

Never beat either ZoE games, so I am totally in for that. Probably grab the MGS collection as well, so I can finally beat MGS3, and maybe play through Peace Walker again on the big screen.

#140 Posted by Beforet (2911 posts) -
@nissanskyline: You seem to think I'm referring to a PC port, kind sir.
#141 Posted by FacestabMan (75 posts) -

Nice, where's my PC version of the MGS collection?


Awww.

#142 Posted by dudeglove (7684 posts) -

oh fuck yes I want ZOE 2

#143 Posted by judamasmas (6 posts) -

Am I the only one wanting to play MGS Twin Snakes in PS2? This was a very good rework of the first MGS, they should include it and also a non pixelated version of the original PS1 MGS!!

#144 Posted by hitman47 (7 posts) -

For X360? This is great!!

#145 Posted by Dan_CiTi (3147 posts) -
@PandaBear: Okay cool good
#146 Posted by Eyz (451 posts) -

I might finally be able to play those Zone of Enders! :P

#147 Edited by Grissefar (2842 posts) -

 YES, Zach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#148 Posted by dagas (2744 posts) -

I hope they base it on MGS3: Subsistence and not Snake Eater. I didn't like Snake Eater much, but I heard they fixed a lot of my issues with the new camera in Subsistence, but that game is seriously hard to find at a decent price. Snake Eater can be found anywhere, but it seems subsistence didn't sell that many copies. 
 
People who think it should be a PS3 exclusive can **** off! why would you want less people to be able to enjoy a game? Does it in any way detract from your experience that more people can enjoy it? I only have a 360, but I have never and will never complain that a game is also coming out on the PS3. Good for them, it doesn't hurt me in any way.

#149 Posted by EpochError (75 posts) -

Looking forward to getting my hands on Peace Walker, since I can't imagine buying a PSP or NGP.

#150 Posted by Norusdog (339 posts) -

I'm all over the MGS HD collection
