Those of you who have been waiting patiently anticipating the Metal Gear Solid HD collection that was reported to hit consoles in the UK, will be very pleased to know that Konami have finally revealed the official release date for it.
News that there would be a HD remake of the popular series first began back in December last year. Later the collection was confirmed to be making its way to the PS3 exclusively, before news that it would also be made available on Xbox 360 consoles, possibly angering PS3 fans at the same time, was revealed. Now we can confirm via the developers that the collection will be appearing on Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles on February 3rd.
If you are unfamiliar with what the HD collection will include, here is a reminder of what you can expect come next February. It will feature three HD remakes; Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (a PSP title), Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. It will also feature two non-HD games; Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake and Metal Gear.
Back in August we brought you news of a special ‘ultimate’ edition HD collection which was available at Zavvi for the PS3. These were limited availability bundles, only 4,000 of which could be obtained. They included all the content you will be able to get in February except they also featured a copy of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots and PSN code for allowing the download of the PSOne game Metal Gear Solid.
Which console will you be downloading the Metal Gear Solid HD collection on next year?
