In honor of Hideo Kojima’s 25th anniversary of the Metal Gear Solid franchise, many big announcements and special limited edition swag been a offered within the past month and culminating at PAX 2012. Hideo Kojima himself made an appearance during PAX to celebrate this momentous occasion. Not only has Konami confirmed the MGS HD Collection would release digitally, but a limited edition MGS HD Collection bundle pack has been revealed as well.
I’ve always been a huge fan of the Metal Gear Solid franchise. And although my dark secret is that I have only played MGS 2, 3, and 4, I have gathered most of the first games concept through the intricate storytelling of Hideo Kojima. (I may not have played MGS, but I did beat MGS4 on extreme.) Now that I finally own a PS3, I one day plan to download the original Metal Gear Solid and replay through all of the games as they were meant to be played.
I just wish that the PS3 was backwards compatible because I already own MGS2 and MGS3, but I wouldn’t mind owning the HD versions of them.

- Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty – HD Edition (PS Vita)
