Konami Goes HD Collection Crazy, Announces MGS, Zone of the Enders, Silent Hill Collections
They ARE making something new. Two things actually: Metal Gear Solid: Rising and Kojima's mystery title.
This seemed like a huge cop out for Konami. Rather than make something new, lets just repackage and resell old shit!
AND Silent Hill: Downpour
@Dan_CiTi said:Yeah, same here.@PandaBear said: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.@SlashseveN303 said: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.@Landon said: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.@Dan_CiTi said:I really thought we were free of these people on Giant Bomb. Oh well.@AmericanNinja said: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 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.
boooo MGS collection should be PS3 exclusive
As much as I like the idea of HD remakes, it's hardly a "collection" if you're missing the first game in the franchise. Maybe it's just me being slightly OCD, but I want a complete HD collection, not half a collection.
I'd understand it if they left out some of the newer games in the franchise, but not being able to play through them chronologically starting with the first one bums me out.
Never played the first Zone of the Enders and never owned the second, but I'm looking forward to them.
Ugh, parts of The Second Runner just suck though, like the part where you had to carry that other robot out of the factory. But then there's awesome shit, like the fight against the battlecruisers, to make up for it.
This is officially the fucking nuts. Pretty soon I won't need to switch on my sketch-ass PS2 at all.
As soon as the SSX HD collection is announced, I'm throwing that hulking black box out, investing in a slim and bowing to the greatest games library in the world.
Important Note: MGS3 better be subsistence. Having played both, I refuse to go back to static cameras in that game.
Edit: So many typos.
MGS collection I am still interested in but really I would have liked it MGS1 to be included, even if it meant cutting peacewalker. Also why silent hill 2 and 3, without the first one it's not really that interesting to me.
Also I have seen some people complaining because this is coming to xbox 360 as well. That is fucking retarded.
The people complaining about these collections hitting 360 are ridiculous. Just as ridiculous are the people congratulating 360 owners because they finally get to play these games as though they couldn't have possibly ever owned a PS2.
Depending on the quality of the ports I might pick these up. These were some of my favorite PS2 games and playing them again in HD might be fun. $60 for two or three up-resed games might be a little steep though. The lack of MGS and Silent Hill is disappointing as well.
Maybe the lack of a HD Metal Gear Original is the sign of something bigger and better to come!They haven't been done simply because they were PSOne games and can't simply be upresed into HD.
They already did a remake on the Gamecube that brought it up to par with the others, but it wasn't handled by Kojima and was a complete disaster, which I guess is why it hasn't been included here.. I really don't see them going back and re-doing it again either. You can already get the original on PSN and I'd be surprised if we don't see it released on XBLA at some point too, but I wouldn't expect any more than that.
I've been hoping to play the metal gear games in HD really wish they'd included MGS1 though, did they state why? it was updated for gamecube it wouldn't be hard; unless they're planning something bigger with it but i doubt it still very happy to have MGS in HDI think the game play difference is the call here...the Twin Snakes updated it...but it just did not feel the same, and the cut scenes, BAH, awful :P I would like better graphics, but leave the game play the same says I. I go back and play it, and it's so much it's own thing, MGS 2, 3 and 4 are all somewhat similar, leave the classic classic.
That said, I have been dying to play through this series again....perhaps I will wait instead of PS2ing it out :P
I am so happy that the Metal Gear HD Collection was announced. I would love to go back and replay the remastered versions of Sons of Liberty and Snake Eater and give Peace Walker a try (never got to play it due to not owning a PSP). With trophy support, my dreams have come true xD
I never finished MGS3 on my PS2 back in the day, ran out of time, so now I get to redo it properly. MGS3 was much better than MGS4 on PS3, I never liked MGS4, it just alienated me the more I played it. MGS2 is cool I guess, but I hate raiden, and I''ll bet once I have finished MGS3, Peace Walker will be a welcome addition. Shame no MGS1 or MGS4 in the collection for Xbox though. Imagine the value in a pack that was MGS1-4!!
