Metal Gear Solid: Essential Collection all true, on pre-order now in US

Saturday, 2nd February 2008 20:13 GMT By Patrick Garratt


The rumoured Metal Gear Solid: Essential Collection for PS2 isn’t rumoured after all, and is now available fro pre-order at Gamestop in the US. There’s no word on a European launch, and quick look round Amazon UK, GAME and Play shows nothing but old Metal Gear games.

The pack is thought to include all previous MGS titles, including the Substance and Substinence versions of the second and third games respectively.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    I’ve already got mine ordered at Play Asia. It’s a good time to be an MGS fanboy.

    Looks awesome. It’s no money, as well. Be a shame if this didn’t make it to Europe.

    Ah christ, yet another reason to buy all those games again. Still, I suppose it would be nice to have an English language retrospective to alongside my Japanese 20th Anniversary set.

    Who am I kidding :(

    I’m definitely getting it. Rude not to. I’ve never played the third one, bizarrely. Slipped through the net.

    Oh man, you’re in for a treat. My personal favourite of the series.

    You can get it on eBay for about three quid.

    They should release the whole series on a single disc together with MGS4. I might be tempted to buy it, since I never bought a single MGS game and would like to know why people are getting so excited about it.

    I finished the first two. They’re awesome in a weird way. Sensational boss battles. The first one’s amazing.
