Rumour: Metal Gear Solid Trilogy HD Coming

It has to happen, right?

According to an industry insider, whispering in the ear of the Official PlayStation Magazine, the recent flurry of remaking past classics in HD is to continue with the first three Metal Gear Solid games set to appear remastered on the PS3.

It’s not the first time we’re heard such rumblings and, on the face of it, it makes perfect sense. The first three Metal Gear Solids, though available on other platforms, are synonymous with the PlayStation brand. With God of War, Prince of Persia, Sly Cooper, Splinter Cell and other franchises (we’d be here all day listing them) all receiving a high-definition spruce up, it seems a no-brainer that Snake and co. would also get a face-lift.

You’d buy it in a heart-beat, right?

Thanks CVG

  1. Hopefully they release the Substance/Subsistance versions of 2 & 3. MGS3 really requires the Subsistance camera.

    • I bet you that’ll be DLC for the extra content ….

  2. O_o
    Just checked PS2 ‘Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence’ on Amazon.co.uk
    £147 !!!! Crazy prices

    • Got mine for £40, but I have seen some crazy prices. Knowing what it’s like, I would be willing to pay up to £70. But I totally bum Snake, so thats just me :P

      • I paid £62 for my copy of subsistance, and that was some timee ago. What really annoyed me was I got it when it first came out for £9.99 on special offer and traded it in… MADNESS!

  3. Twin Snakes. Yuck.

  4. I hope this is true. I will have to eat my PS3 if this comes out. I hope MGS1hd won’t be Twin snakes as that was over the top.

    • What was over the top about it? It was exactly the same as the original with a few added extra bits and moves from MGS2. Personally I hope they use the version of shadow moses in MGS4. It’s virtually all there save for a few ares!

      • Some of the scenes look like they didn’t fit in .Eg snake doing a backflip while on a jeep. I just prefer the PS version as that had more soul to it.

      • Ah right, I see what you mean. Yeah, I wasn’t too fond of the whole ‘backflip of a stinger missile’ scene to be honest.

  5. The thought of this is mouth watering at a general HD re-release level, but knowing Kojima, it would be a re-release of Twin Snakes, 2 and 3 with MGS4’s engine and camera (as seen in Snake Eater 3DS) I would literally pay anything for that!

  6. yes please, right now thank you

  7. If they do bring this out – my god I will throw money at them! lol

  8. I’d like to see all 4 games plus the two Psp ones on one disk, priced at £199, very limited numbers, with queues of people on Oxford Street fighting for their copy with knives and cardboard boxes. I would film it all, make a movie and retire on the proceeds fat, young and happy!

  9. Anything can happen :)

  10. I’ve got:
    MGS1 (with RE demo)
    MGS2: Substance
    MGS3: Subsistance
    MGS3: Snake Eater autographed by Hideo Kojima
    MGS4 Collectors Edition
    and if this is true even if it was priced at £100 I’d still not even hesitate in buying it immediately.

    The only thing that makes me sceptical is that all games now need trophies and Konami can’t even be bothered making a trophy patch for MGS4. Although who knows, perhaps the release of this would be done in conjunction with a MGS4 trophy patch (hopefully backwards compatible considering I’ve got all 40 emblems already and REALLY don’t want to do the chicken and bbx run again). That would just result in me having a crippling joygasm and a total decimation of my social life!
