Kind of a bittersweet announcement

Snake Eater 3D was one of the few 3DS games I was looking forward to but it seems kind of pointless now.

I just finished beating MGS 1-3 on my friend's old PS2 and now you tell me I could do it on my 360, in HD, with achievements?! -.-

I don't understand why they would put the psp game in the collection rather than MGS 4.  Actually, yes i do: transfarring -.-

Peace Walker is the best selling MGS game in japan so it makes some amount of sense.

@ChristianCastillo: Because MGS4 would be several DVDs on the 360 and an extra Bluray on the PS3. We must assume it's one BD and several DVDs.

@EuanDewar: but why put out peace walker rather then make the collection MGS1, 2, 3? 
 
It would be just like the Metal Gear Solid Essentials collection that came out a few years back but spruced up in HD with achievements/trophies

@Hunkulese: In a way I'm glad that MGS 3 is coming out in a better way onto consoles. No console (or handheld) should rely on ports and enhanced ports to carry it over.  
Not saying that enhanced ports are a bad thing or anything like that. I have bought some myself. I just don't think that any system should rely on the sales of ports at the start.

They wouldn't have made the decision to put PW in there instead of MGS1 if it didn't make business sense or maybe something with copyright or some crap like that was holding them back. I'm sure we'll be given a real reason in due time.

@EuanDewar: I hope we do hear something as to why that is.

I'm still getting Snake Eater 3DS as well - it's one of my favourite games and I'd love to have it on the go.

I thought Peace Walker was the best MGS next to 3. Too bad not many people outside of Japan played it.

I am really looking forward to playing Peace Walker. I am a bit disappointed to see what was a great Playstation exclusive go to the 360 as well, I am glad that more people will have the chance to play the game and sales can increase. As for the 3DS version of Snake Eater, I was going to get the 3DS for just that and Ocarina of Time but now I am going to wait and see what Nintendo have to show at E3 before spending any of my hard earned money on what might be a dud.

I have to agree that this is a real kick in the teeth for Nintendo, MGS 3D Snake Eater was about to sell me on the 3DS but after seeing this collection for the 360 it seems rather pointless. I hope Nintendo have some great 3DS news for E3.
