Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Gets Firm Release Date

Konami has officially confirmed that the Metal Gear Solid HD collection will release on February 3rd 2012 for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 - which ties in nicely with the "early 2012" launch window we were given at TGS last month. The compilation will contain revamped high definition versions of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty, MGS 3: Snake Eater and Peace Walker, as well as the original Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 that originally released on the MSX. The PS3 version will also debut Hido Kojima's bizarrely-named Transfarring system, which allows you to swap your Peace Walker PSP save file onto your home console.

It's a shame that the original Metal Gear Solid won't be included, but frankly, the HD collection represents staggeringly good value nonetheless.

Why is MGS1 not included? Makes no sense, that.
I'll still get it, mind...

Did you read the article?

"as well as the original Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 that originally released on the MSX"

Seriously?
Take your own advice, bud :lol:

I draw your attention to two things:
a) The final sentence of the article, which includes "It's a shame that the original Metal Gear Solid won't be included";
b) The difference between "Metal Gear" and "Metal Gear Solid".

I believe there is a special edition for the PS3 that includes PSN code to download MGS

True, but it's limited to 4000 sold-out copies. They should include the PSN code as a pre-order bonus or something. And there's currently no way of getting it on 360
