From the critically acclaimed director, Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection offers a handful of the most popular Metal Gear Solid titles from the past in true HD for the first time ever. Featuring three complete games, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, the HD Collection offers old and new fans a chance to experience the epic game play, design and storytelling of the MGS franchise. The "Metal Gear Solid (MGS)" series is the seminal work of Hideo Kojima, Japan's master game creator, and the progenitor of the stealth action game genre. The series has become a global phenomenon, with over 27 million copies sold worldwide. The player controls a secret agent from an elite special forces unit who is sent on solo sneaking missions through enemy installations, vast jungles, and sometimes even the thick of battle. Alone and surrounded by the enemy, even a special forces agent will find it tough to come out alive. But that is the secret behind the series' popularity - the cerebral challenge of figuring out how to avoid combat, and the thrill of sneaking through enemy territory undetected.The MGS series is also known for its storyline, which blends seamlessly with the gameplay. The scenarios are based on extensive research and incorporate the drama of actual developments in society. These elements have made MGS what it is today: a mature work of entertainment that transcends national borders and the confines of video games, and one of the leading products of the Japanesecontent business.

Best Storyline of all TIME!!!
Location: TInley Park, IL
Now I am a MGS fanboy. I love the gameplay, story, characters, etc, etc. Now i am very happy that they are releasing these 3 awesome games on the ps3 (sad they ported it over to xbox. But hey they dont get the awesomeness that is MGO) I have been a fan since the first game came out. It was awesome and i loved the story. I played the 4th game Guns of the patriots and i got confused with the story not knowing much about the backstory. Well now with the release of these games the story will now be complete for me. I advise anybody who is picking up this game to totally get this edition. I have never seen a artbook before that has 250 pages of pure awesomeness! I am so crazy for this game i will be playing this before i start playing my call of duty (sorry mgs just takes a alot more skill and patience then cod)

I WANT THIS!
Location: PSL, FL
I want this so badly. I cant wait to get this so i can play my favorite games in HD! I have all three of these games on there original consoles, the normal release of each game, and every rerelease of each game (of all the games,almost). Yes I know what you're thinking, "NERD", but this is like the best sieries ever! Also, I'm glad they're puting it on the xbox360, that way everyone can play it. Well, almost every one. They should release it on that new Wii thing nintendo is releasing too, that way EVERYONE can play it! I gues they should put it on PCs as well huh? Hopefully everyone will have fun!

Well, there goes $80...
Location: Dallas, TX
I can honestly say I am surprised this is coming out state side. I remember seeing the art work and coverage during TGS, and no one would think it would come out in the US. Well, it is... and now I have to pre-order it. I own all three titles, and I have beaten them many times, but I cannot pass up on a Collector's Edition of anything Metal Gear Solid related. Looks like I am about to be $80 more poor between Uncharted 3 and Skyrim!

They could have done so much more than this. Metal Gear Solid is one of those game series that DESERVES HD graphics. MGS4 was beautiful. The God of War Collection beats this one out, hands down in graphics. They should have put much more time in to this.
I'm all for a re-release on to PS3 but with PS3 graphics!

Konami wouldn't dare remaster the original Metal Gear Solid. You can't risk botching a re-release of the most widely hailed game on any platform.

Re:Loving ever minute of it !!!
Location: Clovis, New Mexico
This game is perfect for: casual gamers
The graphic's are great, I never had the chance to play Peace Walker, so I also had a new game to play, plus the classic's. You can also buy just the game for $49.99 instead of the limited addition, I bought just the game and saved $30.00

After playing all the MGS saga I just can't say anything else just MGS is the best game I ever play( gameplay tactics, the sound of the guns, the sniping, camouflages etc..)
