This collection better have the un censored, original version of Metal gear Solid 2. The last Metal gear Solid HD collection had the censored MGS2 Substance, where they cut out bullet wounds/red stains on enemy soldiers. And they better keep Snakes nightmare in MGS3 this time.

Apparently It wasn't shipped out to GameStop today and that blows but they said I'll have to wait another day or two but I hope they will still let me get the $20 off of it when I pre ordered it and Put $20 on the game.

That is a lot of Metal Gear! At a damn good price too, I got MGS4 the day it came out for 60 bones.

I wish they were releasing this for PS4. It kinda sucks that this will be released on what will be considered a last gen console in only a few months.

well, the temptation for this... is because you are a real fan, hopefully I can sell my HD collection to get this legacy collection..   or maybe when this is cheap... the artbook is the only reason I'd buy this

If all the games in this were HD with Trophies it would of been worth it.  Dont know why they dont release MGS1 in HD...its the best one

Still sucks that Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid VR missions are only Download codes.  They should have put them on a disc.   Hell just pack in the original PS1 discs since every PS3 plays PS1 games.

people, if you already own most of these games, dont buy it, stop complaining, and just shut the f**k up

seriously what the hell makes you think you are forced to buy them? do you think that if you dont buy them, Kojima is going to send a squad of cyber ninjas to kill you or something? are you insane?

Any chance these'll come on PS4? Cus if so, it's the game I want to rendezvous with again from the lousy shafted 360 version.

I know the original metal gear solid was amazing and what not, but am I the only one who would love to have seen an HD version of Twin Snakes? Having the first person aiming and all the other bells and whistles from the 2nd game was pretty awesome to have in the original. And cool new cutscenes

I'm really sad that MGS1 is a downloadable voucher; having it on disk would make this feel so much more complete.

Sony? What a fail Eddie. I saw this on the PS Blog the person responsible in putting the news was from Konami:

I have all those games and in multiple formats. Although this package is very attractive, I think I'm going to stop giving money purchasing the same content again and again.

CincoToes

I've played a bit of all the MGS's but never bought one because I figured it was too much cut-scenes to be worth it to me. But damn, 8 games for 50 bucks... seems silly not to buy.

Time to re-buy the games for the 3rd time lol xD.

Did Kojima go mad? Yes, already he was infected by the greed virus, now it is only money money money! forgetting the good stories. MGS V is proof of that, one more patch to the already elongated and exploited series, shame Kojima, you used to be cool

would have been awsome if it wasnt for the lack of the Nintendo Exclusive twin snakes.  luckily it looks like its going up on virtual console in the spring

@steelmouth  the other HD MGS collection is censored and cut. If this HD collection has the original MGS2 un censored(blood stains/bullet wounds on enemies intact), with MGS3 uncut(snakes nightmare intact)that I will buy it.

@snakefantasy10 Yeah, getting it delayed feels like it's being sentenced to death row. Don't get me wrong, It makes sense to PS4 it but you know Sony...

@Naylord I'm confused to why they haven't done a HD remake of it. My personal favourite.

@SC-Genjisamurai you should get this collection only if you played the ps2 versions.  Don't get the MGS 2subsistance version it is censored. get the regular MGS2 for ps2. Also the Snake Eater HD doesn't have the snake nightmare when he gets thrown in prison, like in the ps2 substance version. MGS3 substance is one of the best games/stories ever made. You need to play it.

@SC-Genjisamurai I was just about to ask that. I too have yet to play a Metal Gear Solid game. I will be getting this some time then.

@SC-Genjisamurai Dear god yes! They are amazing games and I have played each of them multiple times. At this point, since you've never played them, MGS1 controls will feel dated to you. But stick with it. The story is amazing, and it will get better with the following games.

@Rheinmetal I'm giving away my copy of the HD collection so I can buy this; I really want that artbook

Dienheart

@CincoToes If you dont own any of them, have a ps3, its a damn good buy. For the cut scenes, if they bore you skip em, me, depends on my mood. Ill watch em if i feel like being engrossed in the story, or skip em if I want to get some game play or fight a particular boss.

@KiriharaZro To be fair by the time MGSV comes out it will have been over 6 years after the release of metal gear solid 4. 6 years between releases is hardly milkage even when MGS4 was a swan song.

snova9308

@KiriharaZro

yes, MGS V, the game that isn't out yet, and no one knows what the stroy is yet, is definitely proof that the story sucks, and Kojima is a raving money monster.

and I have the perfect proof that you are an idiot

what is it you ask? this jar of peanut butter in my hands

@Gh05t_ buddy the best video game story i ever played till now....

@Naylord @KiriharaZro  

Yeah but, when come out the MGS HD Collection? yeah in 2011 and now 2 years later another collection and maybe in 2014 MGS V, thats not milking right? the point is when were gonna have a NEW game from Kojima?? is MGS over and over again, I remember when he said "is the last one, I dont want to direct a MGS game anymore" and what we have? another MGS game! Im fan of the series since the PS1 but thats enough the series are soooo tired, let it rest or it became like RE with viariations so stupid than one day we see a MGS like a bullseye carnival game.

Theres nothing else to say about the story of BigBoss or Snake, after MGS V what will be? "MGS VI how BigBoss learn to smoke a cigar"

KiriharaZro
KiriharaZro

@snova9308@KiriharaZro

well, why ANOTHER LEGACY BULLSHIT COLLECTION? oh yeah is for free and theres still people who dont have played MGS, yeah maybe is for charity reasons, and for MGS V read again please "one more patch to the already elongated and exploited series" just like MG R its a dull effort to continue make money and if you feel someway attacked well, maybe you´re a dumbass who will give his money for the same games again.

@KiriharaZro  the story of MG1 and 2 were told with blocky graphics on a NES and MSX. These stories could be better portrayed on a modern system.

@Dredcrumb9 

You say it: A REMAKE from a game already released and we know the story, so where´s the NEW story.

@KiriharaZro "Theres nothing else to say about the story of BigBoss or Snake, after MGS V what will be?" <you could not be more wrong.  A remake of METAL GEAR with the fox engine where Solid Snake makes his debut, infiltrating Outer Heaven has still yet to be done.  Solid Snake's 2nd adventure in Zanzibar land with the fox engine is also a possibility.

@Albaficas @KiriharaZro  

Yeah, in first place everyone hates Raiden since MGS2 and now they make a game just for him, and the worst, its in the line of the main story just because they call it Metal Gear

KiriharaZro

@snova9308 @KiriharaZro  

LOL Im insane haha yeah, as I say MGS is now a piece of marketing, thats the reason youre going to buy it, you dont buy the games when they arrived in first place, but now with this LEGACY-FOR-THE-MOMENT-COLLECTION. Kojima is stuck in the same game for almost 28 years, and once again another collection will be released in years to come  with all MGS included the new MGS V.... and Im sure youre going to buy it because it´ll came with stikers for your console.

@KiriharaZro mg r lol what a crappy piece of trash game....crapy story,horrible acting and terrible music

@KiriharaZro 

I dont own most of these games, so I am going to buy them.

if you have most of the games and your complaining because you are under some delusion that Kojima is shoving this down your throat, and you are forced to buy it or men in black suits are comming to kill you, you are indeed insane.
