Here's to hoping that they get HD remixes, too :P.

I read the japanese version will also include MGS1, but it seems to be the same version as the one currently on PSOne Classics. I would very much like that nonetheless.

The MGS2 will be the Substance version I believe too, which has a bunch of VR missions and a skateboarding mini game.

Peacewalker instead of MGS1 seems like more than a fair trade to me.

This pleases me greatly! Don't need another copy of MGS1 and I've never played MG or MG2 before.

I'm still irritated over it being called a collection while omitting the best game in the series....

#8 Posted by Skytylz (4031 posts) -

I'm so excited for this, I've never owned a sony console but I remember playing through these with my friend and those were definitely some of my best gaming memories.

Oh didn't you hear? Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistance is in here so no worries! I'll forgive you this one time for making such a mistake.

So Substance is confirmed? Any news on whether it will also have the 3D camera?

@Beforet: Didn't you have some videotapes you needed to return?

#13 Posted by SaffronRevolution (35 posts) -

They should include Metal Gear Acid (Ac!d?) as freebies. I would never deliberately buy them so...

@Ygg
You can just download MGS1 on the Playstation Store for $5. Making a total investment of $45, ($40 HD Collection, and a $5 MGS1 game.)

Agreed. Would be cool to have a month of just MGS from MG to MGS3 (then finally play my copy of MGS4 I've been putting off for 1+ years).

It's nagging at me that another MGS collection will be released. Maybe something for the 25th anniversary next year including the rest of the PSP games and a few extra bits and bobs. Doesn't seem like an MGS4 Subsistance  is on the cards. But making all the games bar 4 playable on the Vita with transfarring would be a good selling point.

that is going to be sweet. i can't wait for the collection. i never played 1 or 2, i only played 3 and a little bit of 4. i need to play 4 in my pile of shame.

As far as Kojima's Twitter feed states, the Japanese version will have a download code for the PSN version of MGS1.

Sorry to butt in but it looks like you made an almost grevious mistake in misspelling MGS2: Substance! Oh, how close was that to disaster!

@Beforet: Oh yeah you should try Darcia's. I went there last week and they got the best fuckin' steaks in the city.

...Say, Castiel, you like Huey Lewis and The News?

@Beforet: They're okay... is that a raincoat?

I want Twin Snakes. Kojima make it happen, I don't give a crap about the PSP port

That's not really the point is it? I could just play my copies of MGS2 and 3 on an emulator on my PC at 1920x1080 which is probably a higher resolution than these HD "remakes" will run at. I actually don't see much point in these HD collections if you have a half decent PC to use emulation from, in this case it seems all they're doing is adding achievements, trophies and turning the resolution up. I'd have paid if they released The Twin Snakes as that's actually hard to find. (well, for a reasonable price at least)
 
I'd much rather have seen MGS1 get some love, they should have got licensing to re-release The Twin Snakes at the very least. 
 
Edit: Also the PSN release of MGS1 looks terrible even when upscaled on a PS3, my original PS1 release of MGS1 also looks truly awful. Looks 10x better when ran through an emulator on PC.

Good game but the camo system was awful and made me question how blind the AI must be. It being brought back in MGS4 annoyed me greatly too. Hurray for enemies with cataracts.

Having played MG2 I cant wait till everyone finishes it and realises MGS for the PS1 was nothing but a carbon copy of that game but in 3D.

That would be fucking sweet if it did.
#28 Posted by niamahai (1405 posts) -

i think they are keeping MGS1 off so they can reboot the entire franchise. Again.

#29 Posted by BasketSnake (1184 posts) -

I used to send an e-mail to Kojima Productions every month for about two years begging for HD editions. Seems like it worked.

#30 Posted by FishieBuddha (38 posts) -

So any word on this having update controls? Or the hand-to-hand combat?

You and I... it's like, we're the same person...

I'm now strangely excited for the re-release, but mainly for the trophies.
