METAL GEAR SOLID: The HD Collection is out now for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita!
This is the thread to discuss all things HD Collection related!
We would love to hear your stories, feedback, hints and tips and anything else.
Happy posting! :catvery-happy:
I managed to complete it all but no idea if I'll be able to do that again. :(
I did do it all...
I was just saying that it was so hard that doing it all again... It's gonna take a lot out of me haha.
No idea how long it took me but I remember I got it in a Summer and I played it nonstop. XD
Ah right I see haha, true though.
I've just seen this picture and I guess this pretty much confirms it's Substance version.
From Kojima's Twitter. (Japanese one though, English haven't tweeted since August 17th...)
There's also other MGS2 HD Collection Pictures here too.
Just think how much content there is in this collection though! And it's not even £30!
Definitely worth it more than... Lets say COD and it's price? Haha. :p
The three titles would probably have cost around 100 quid on release bought seperately, getting all three for 30 is a steal given the improved graphics (not that I care about graphics).
Cod will cost you 40 quid on release, then they erm... ...well... ...pfft... ...the um... charge you 40 quid again. They don't even touch the graphics.
Not to mention all the Map Packs they release as DLC.
Like 5 maps for £10.99. =\
But yeah anyway it's pretty good to get three full games and then the bonus stuff when they were released again, all for that price.
To be honest I think most of gaming has gone down the money grabbing route this gen. Activision and EA being the worst offenders.
If you actually think about it though, these HD classics, essentially you get charged 30 for some nicer graphics if you still own the PS2 originals, which personally I don't think is worth it.
Peace walker with a second analog stick however, charge me whatever you like...:smileyvery-happy:
Actually I think the best part of this gen has been the games, and they're pretty lackluster at best. Online gameplay was good until trophies arrived (burnout paradise used to be fun) and then all the H4H stuff started on LBP, which was the beginning of a downward spiral for me. Assassins creed is getting a bit COD like for me now, the same game with slightly altered environments. At least ubisoft have the decency to provide us with a plot.
This notion of a home console being a media hub though, I just don't get it, granted it certainly has a lot of added features, but my laptop outperforms my PS3 on all of them except for vidzone, which youtube bests. Oh and home, whatever that is/does I'll stick to going to the pub instead.
I agree about Online being a main focus these days now. (Definitely the case for COD.)
Online trophies I don't completely agree with for different reasons.
Ah the days when there weren't trophies... I do miss that tbh.
Like these days I don't want to borrow games to see if I like them because I don't want the trophy data there etc...
I get the same kinda feeling about Assassin's Creed too, basically for me it's just the draw distance.
Don't get me wrong though, I enjoy playing the games. =)
"MGS HD collection. Omori-kun is working on rewriting UI for HD spec. General version on the left, and weapon & equipment icons for HD version on the right."
Definitely looks better!
Not sure on what's with the background colour, not having that in the game are they? XD
"Final checking of co-op on “MGS PW” HD collection. By using infrastructure mode connection (via PlayStation Network/XBOX Live), 4 people can co-op and it is 60 frames. During loading, characters’ dialogues pop up at random."
At least no Konami ID? Haha... :p
Edit: Oh yeah and I thought this was an interesting tweet haha:
"Made "SNATCHER" when I was 25 (1988), "MGS1" at 35 (1998), and "MGS4" at 45 (2008). Then "????" at 55 (2018)."
I think it's nice of them to put the online in the console versions, yeah. But I am more happy that people who refused to buy a PSP will get to play Peace Walker because it's a good story. What I am sad about is that the story from Portable Ops won't ever see a console. Although strange and almost 'spin off quality' it was a really good story. Shame about those controls is all.
I'm going to get the HD collection, not for the trophies or even the better graphics. Just for the fact that I can play all the games* on one console.
*all but Portable Ops I guess
I wonder if Portable Ops will ever be done too, it doesn't matter if Portable is in the name right? XD
Anyway there has been a trailer released for the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.
For MGS2, it looks like you get the following:
VR Misssions and Alternative Missions
Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2.
Then I don't know if we get this but there's a MGS1 code too to download from the PS Store.
Then it goes on about a Premium Package for Japan which you also get "The Art of Metal Gear Solid The Original Trilogy" and "Metal Gear Solid The Original Trilogy - Vocal Tracks CD"
It's definitely looking pretty good.
PS: Looks like one of the trophies is to eat a Snake. ;) :p
Regarding the release date:
"The Metal Gear Solid HD collection will launch 23rd November in Japan, this was revealed recently by Konami and Kojima productions at the Tokyo Games Show.
Peace Walker HD is getting a stand-alone release on the 10th November in Japan.
Although western release dates have not been confirmed as of yet, Konami has said they will be arriving in the near future. We are still expecting the game to arrive this November."
Multi-posts in a row ftw.
Here's a bunch more screenshots of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection featuring all the games.
Edit: Would help if I added the link haha...
I think Bluepoint Games really like doing HD collections since they done both God of War collection or at least the first they are also doing the Ico and SotC one and they doing MGS collection and probably Zone of the Enders too.
