Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence on PSN

Has anyone bought the digital download version of MGS3 off of PSN? I'm wondering if the download will include MG1 and 2 with it? If not, I may just have to get the disc.

I would assume they are included considering you access those games through MGS3.

@Guided_By_Tigers: Ah, I had it on PS2 and thought they were on the bonus disc. If they're on the same disc I guess you're right. Thanks.

Does the PSN version share the same save files with the disk version?

I thought the HD disk did NOT have substance and subsistance, they were the older versions of the game, so one can guess that they do not have them. That means no skateboarding.

They weren't included on that trilogy collection for the PS2, because that only came with the primary disc.

No, for the most part you get the releases updates on the HD version. You have the new camera in MGS3, the I Like MGS options, MG1 and 2, however I don't think secret theater, Boss Rush, MGO or Snake Vs. the Monkey is there. May be wrong about some of those, but I played MG1 and 2.

MGS 2 has its theater mode plus the snake ops and the trial modes. I haven't seen skateboarding.

The digital copy of Subsistence should have MG and MG2. The only thing that was not included was the Ape Escape mini-game. When you purchase the game, there should be a wall of text describing what's included.

I bought the collectors edition of the HD collection when it came out last year. It came with an awesome hardcover art book. I was bummed out that the skateboard mini-game was not included in Substance. I know that people thought that its a bad skateboarding game but I had fun with it when it was on PS2.

Yeah, some of those are part of the trophies for the game, so I'd assume Boss Rush is in there.
