Konami has announced it is to revisit Hideo Kojima's seminal Metal Gear Solid series with a special HD remastered collection for PlayStation®3.
The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will release in November and will comprise HD remastered versions of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. It will mark the first time these legendary titles have been released on PS3, and will act as a stunning introduction to one of the most enduring video game series of all time.
Metal Gear mastermind and series creator Hideo Kojima is overseeing the updates for each title. In addition to the enhanced, high-definition visuals, all titles in the collection will support trophies, marking another first in the series.
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater opens the set, with series hero Snake entering a Soviet jungle where intelligence reports a vital scientist is being held captive. Set in the 60s of the Cold War, Snake Eater sees Snake using his stealth abilities in a whole new locale - under the cover of the jungle foliage where various camo fatigues can be used to sneak into areas undiscovered. The riveting plot then reveals a familiar face from Snake's past at its centre.
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker takes place a decade later and details the operations of Big Boss in Costa Rica. The year is 1974, and Costa Rica has been overrun by an organisation of highly-trained mercenaries. Working with a squad of neutral troops, Snake soon uncovers a CIA plot, and becomes embroiled in a mission to thwart a nuclear threat. The timeline then moves on to Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, which is set in modern times and marks Raiden's first appearance in the series.
Solid Snake and Otacon receive intel that a new kind of Metal Gear vehicle is being transported across the Hudson River. Snake infiltrates the tanker, which is then seized by a group of Russian mercenaries lead by Revolver Ocelot. Two years pass, and a new terrorist faction calling themselves The Sons of Liberty have taken over the Big Shell base. New Fox Hound operative, Raiden, is sent to investigate.
"The Metal Gear Solid games have been a huge success and the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is a stunning way to celebrate this most inventive and entertaining series," explained Martin Schneider, General Manager for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. "Every aspect of the three games has been updated to ensure they look as fresh on their new host formats as they did when first released. Stealth fans should be prepared... November will mark the return of one of gaming and Konami's most iconic series."
The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will be released for PlayStation®3 in November.

I was very close to importing but i missed out on the LE from amazon, and will wait agnozingly until feb for my favourite game of all time, heres hoping they do something special for the EU release,
I remember when MGS2 2 came out 3 months late, kojima included an extra difficulty european extreme, and did the same thing for snake eater
But i have seen that there have been some minor errors with the transfer
GORGE SEARS anyone?
Also the sea lice are missing in some scences aswell as the gurlokovich soldiers rope when he rappels onto the tanker but i digress

i got my copy from ebay melbourne which took about 4days to arrive. I couldn't wait till feb either. Toughest decision choosing between starting via story or release. I went with story.. so PW is next for me. Im thinking of even going back to MGS1 before MGS2.. ill see after PW. Also, looks like im on the right track for getting the platinum in one playthough for MGS3 . MGS2 looks abit too demanding for platinum..5 playthroughs recommended, geez
I had a problem in MGS3 where i couldn't get the Pains hornet nest. i was throwing 3 on his island and they would disappear everytime after final cutscene. But after several tries one stayed. And also with the WATER face paint it drove me nuts to find. the official strategy says its south of Svyatogornyj South. its actually Ponizovje South .. just after u leave the caves.
Anyways, my last save is at Svyatogornyj South heading upto the End remember this as being one of my greatest gaming experiences.

I replayed the original MGS during a quiet late winter period this year... before Forza/Gears/Uncharted/Assassins all started coming out at the same time..
This is the one PS HD Classics 'trilogy' I'm actually that interested in... with the exception of the Sly trilogy it seems most to date have been pretty lazy sub-HD ports with trophies.
Jak probably interests me also, due to those being my ex's games, and me not actually having them still... and the first Jak had kinda a charm about it..
