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?

wow pretty awesome collection too bad most MGS fans on the PS3 already have most this games or some other MGS collection,

now if they bring the same collection to the x360 and give it the Halo:CE anniverssary treatment then am in

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.

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

Sometimes I like to think Sony is murdering the PS4 by offering so much PS3 goodness close to its launch

wish they'd do a metal gear compilation for the pc...

I think it would be great if they incorporated the 3DS version's crouch-walking and shoulder-aiming in this version of MGS3. At least that would truly make it the definitive version. Right now the 3DS version has the best gameplay, and is the only one with a stereoscopic 3D mode- but it has the worst framerate (especially compared to the silky-smooth PS3/Vita HD versions) and even with the Circle Pad Pro, has the worst controls. It's to the point that when a buddy of mine asked which version he should get for his first play-through (between 3DS and Vita) I really didn't know what to tell him.  So konami, if you're listening, want to patch crouch-walking, shoulder-aiming and 3D into the PS3 version?

MGS1 is awesome, remake or not. prefer the original over the twin snakes actually..

Twin Snakes cutscenes are over the top.. And the soundtrack was changed, that takes away the nostalgia

This collection seems silly, celebrating the anniversary of the series but doesn't include any of the original Metal Gear games.

Not bad at all tho with the amount of games for $50, especially if you are one of the rare people who has never played MGS4/Peace walker etc.

After this comes out maybe Konami can focus on making a real Silent Hill HD Collection that isn't made on a shoestring budget. Also, throw in part four.

This is definitely the one i am getting, i'm glad i didn't pickup the HD collection when it came out.  Just too bad MGS & VR missions is a voucher and not on the disc.  But besides that its a great collection for the price.

Kurushio

This is like quadruple dipping now. I've already bought each of the individual games when they came out and the HD pack, so i cant see that many people that would really want this. It's a nice package and it is good value, but how many people do not already own most if not all of the collection separately already?

Are this collection will be available in Russia ???
