    Hideo Kojima has announced via twitter that the upcoming Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will include the original Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. There won't be a product code for Metal Gear 1, but considering MGS3 is subsistence specification...Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake will be included.[/p][​IMG] Source
    Five games... Godly collection.
    Still a shame MGS1 isn't included, will have to buy it from PSN and play them in order.

    The Metal Gear Solid Ultimate HD Collection adds Metal Gear Solid 1 and Metal Gear Solid 4.

    In total, then, you'll receive MGS4, MGS3 (Subsistence), MGS2, MGS1 (via PSN download code), Peace Walker, MG1 and MG2.

    Zavvi has snapped up the world exclusive rights to the Metal Gear Solid Ultimate HD Collection. It costs £69.85.

    The MGS Ultimate HD Collection is only available on PS3 at Zavvi.

    Zavvi promotes a release date of 25th November. We're double-checking this with the publisher.

    The Ultimate HD Collection of Metal Gear Solid comes in Steelbook casing. Each copy is individually numbered to make you feel extra special.

    Five PSN art cards are thrown in for free as well.

    In Japan, the standard MGS HD Collection includes a code for the Game Archives version of Metal Gear Solid 1. Presumably that's the same code offered in the Ultimate HD Collection.

    The standard Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will also be available on Xbox 360. [/p]

    The MSX 1&2 and not the NES ones? Sweet.

    That's friggin awesome. [​IMG]

    So... one thing that STILL bothers me. Are these the original versions (Sons of Liberty and Snake Beater Eater or are these the remakes (Substance and Subsistence) with the "proper" names? I will be legitimately sad if I can't play the Skateboarding minigame. [​IMG]

    I would suspect they're the originals due to the fact that they had to put in the news that MG 1+2 were being added when they are in Subsistence already. That said they are on a separate disk in Subsistence so it's just a theory.

    MGS3 will be Subsistence, don't think they've said anything about MGS2 yet.

    I'm wondering why collections like these never seem to include the original game. Silent Hill did it as well. Marketed as the Silent Hill Complete Collection, yet it was missing...uhh...Silent Hill. Seems kinda derp to not have the original Metal Gear Solid on this, preferably the Twin Snakes remake as it's rare as hell these days.

    5 games for the price of one?

    Yeah, buying this and playing with some friends. My biggest hope is either local or online play for Peace Walker.

    That^

    Although it will be interesting to see if they do anything to the originals, I really don't have much interest in playing them.
