Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Detailed, Also Coming To 360

Really? Really.

Konami’s pre-recorded show went live this morning and it seems to be a case of building on solid franchises. As part of this, the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, confirmed for PlayStation 3 earlier this year, has been announced for the Xbox 360 too.

Interestingly, the collection will include Metal Gear Solid 2, MGS 3 and Peace Walker, the excellent PSP title which has been ported up and given a graphical overhaul. As an added bonus for PlayStation owners, the PSP and PS3 save games for Peace Walker will be transferable. So, users can play to a point on their PSP and then hook it up to the PS3, transfer it and continue playing in HD. Lovely.

This will be the first time the classics have been available on Microsoft’s machine and it marks a widening of the multi-platform nature Konami indicated for the series with the unveiling of Rising last year and the announcement of Snake Eater for the Nintendo 3DS.

So, Metal Gear Solid on the Xbox 360. Who thought they’d never see the day? And how long before Metal Gear Solid 4 creeps over?

The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is due for release on PS3 and 360 this November.

  1. Yeehaahhhhhhh, just read this on IGN a few mins ago, great news, but where is MGS1 ??? :( But still, this is awesome :)

    • PS1 games are apparently harder to convert or something.
      I guess the gap from PS1 to PS2 was greater than the jump from PS2 to PS3.
      Although I think MGS was remade for the Gamecube… Could they remake the remake? Or would that be stretching the original assets (assuming they were used) too far?

      • They redid most stuff for Twin Snakes (which was the MGS remake on GC), even alot of the voice acting I believe. So I don’t see why they didn’t remake Twin Snakes as you say. Although I’ve not played it myself, from what I understand there are some very slight changes and the PlayStation version is considered ‘canon’.

  2. Oh yeah, without doubt MGS4 will be on the 360 sooner or later.
    Might take an extra disc or two, but I’m sure gamers will get over it.
    MGS2 and 3 in HD will be great, and Peace Walker? Yay!
    As a side note- does this mean MGS4 will be the only MGS game on PS3 without trophies? That could also be the only thing stopping it going to 360- the need to add in achievements. :P

    • That and the “Please change the disc” joke in the middle of the game ;)

      • They’ll probably leave it in. Except it won’t be a joke. You will actually have to change discs.

      • I hope they do leave it in but joke about it when Snake reliseas that he can’t change the disc.:)

  3. Just wanted to point out that MGS2 was on the original Xbox. It’s not too surprising that the HD collection is on both platforms. More shocked about Peace Walker.

    • Good point, I forgot about that :)

  4. I already have those games (playable on my original PS3) with the exception of Peace Walker as I dont own a PSP. What does this mean? It means I will probably end up buying the whole collection just to own Peace Walker on the PS3!

  5. I came all over my screen. This is officially the best news ever. I’m going to fail my degree because of this.

    SO HAPPY!

  6. Hmm, interesting. I assume every XBox360 release must have achievements, including Peace Walker. So the PS3 version should also have trophies, but how does it work when playing parts of the game on PSP and then transfering the save? Will the trophies be awarded later on the PS3, or no trophies unlocked at all for continues from these save games? Anyway this gives me hope that the PSP remaster series will also include trophies despite other rumours :)

    • I think you mean “transfarring” the save :D ….. other then that you make an interesting point.

  7. La Li Lu Le Lovely!

  8. excellent news.

  9. Looking forward to this. Hoping for decent trophies too.

  10. First off YES!!!!!!!!!!! And secondly, we’d better get a Trophy patch before MGS4 ports to 360!
