I think you should be asking if first but since Konami released Bishi Bashi Special on to the store and have said they will release more it could be here soon.

from what i've read and seen it's only there. bit like we don't get the essential collection or the 80GB PS3 & MGS3 offers. so answers as far as i know: No and Possibly(Note: i did say POSSIBLY, not certainly) never. sorry to destroy your dream

I think it will tbh. (that also goes for it being on the Americans Store too.)

I however probably wont buy it because I still have it on the PS1 in good condition. =)

Eventually they will, I thought they may have done so as a promotion leading up to MGS4. They still might, but the fact that there is still no sign of it on the US store at least suggests it could be a way off. Not really sure the whole deal with regards to how PS games get onto the store, but Sony and Konami will be surely looking at ways of getting it on there as soon as possible. As I've said before, this would sell by the digital bucket loads and generate a lot of profit for both companies. I would buy it, I want a PS1 version of the game, being able to play on both PS3 and PSP is a major draw.

Yeah thats what i was thinking, if i get it on the Store too then I'll be able to play it on my PSP as well!

Would be great that tbh. (although i still haven't sorted that out yet where you play games on the PSP.)

Real simple, connect your PSP, goto [Account Management] -> [Account Management] -> [Activate System] -> [PSP] -> [Activate System]. Then copy over the game(s).

Well that's nice for you, but I wouldn't play it on my PSP at home, which is the only place where I have access to Wifi. Also my MGS is broken.

 

Twin Snakes, whilst it looks better, isn't the better version imo. It lost some of it's charm, and it's difficulty.

I don't know how to. :(
 
Also Smegzilla, i agree that it was over the top but it was much better in the cut scenes with the new graphics.
It was as if they were showing Snake as a Hero, a Superhero kind of thing. 
But yeah i agree with you, a very good game though.

I think it will come but not for a while so I might buy another MGS but I think it might be my PS2 thats broken and not my game.

You put the PSOne disc in your PS3's drive, then go into remote play and choose the black CD that shows up in game on the XMB.

 

EDIT: I would actually buy the game again if it came to store, just for the fact that PSP emulation of PSOne is brilliant compared to remote playing a game. BUt it may just be my Wifi, I just don't view it as 'playable' on remote play. :(

You'll get it, it's easy.

 

Just remember when you first tried to play a PS3 game over remote play [we all tried lol] and you got that error?

Well instead, if it's a PSOne game, it'll play.

Well if you happen to have a Gamecube/Wii then you could do no wrong in buying Twin Snakes, some may disagree but I think it's the better of the two by far.

I do disagree, it's far too over the top for me I'm afraid. Snake jumping over a doorway to get to the other side? It's ridiculously unrealistic, I much prefer him just quickly hopping past the doorway. You must remember which part of the game I mean, it's near the end, I won't post any spoilers though. I know the game's unrealistic enough anyway, but that took it too far to be honest. That's just my opinion though. Apart from the cutscenes, which were ruined, there were major improvements in the gameplay, so it's a double-edged sword.
 
As far as MGS on the UK store? I'd love that. I'd snap it up to play on my PSP, even though I have the game on PS1. Playing it through remote play just isn't that easy when there's button lag, it annoys me. I'd like to play it on my PSP, without all that dodgy custom firmware business.
