I couldn't wait, pre-ordered an import on eBay. I think it's coming from Canadia, just hope everything is compatible on a UK system.

@sgtpeppersteak: you'll need a PSN account tied to the region you got the game from, being from the UK I'm not 100% on what that is but I'm assuming its an American account, to redeem the codes for the PS1 titles

@bleedingstarx: yeah I have my US account ready *rubs hands maliciously*. I already have an original copy of MGS1, but it doesn't run particularly well on the PS3. The gameplay is fine but cut scenes are unbearably choppy, and some don't play at all.

That is all. Thank you.
