    Pretty worthless if you ask me. I rather have Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes, than replaying MGS for the thousandth time.

    I’m guessing this won’t be available in the US?

    There are even two games more in the collection:!/HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN/status/101930074223280128

    MG 1 and 2 (originally for the MSX) are also included in MGS3 Subsistance.

    So there are MG1, MG2, MGS3, MGS Peacewalker, (MGS 1), MGS2, (MGS4).

    But I myself will just need the Collection without MGS 1 and 4, because I already own MGS 1 (PSOne Disk and PSOne Classic via PSN on PS3 and PSP) and MGS4.

    I’m guessing this is mainly just focused at the Xbox users as quite a few PS3 users already have MGS4 or at least tried it by now.

    @5 The Zavvi exclusive boxset is for PS3 only.

    The whole thing is really overcharging the customer for what you are getting. The standard HD collection is going for around £30 elsewhere while you can get MGS1 off PSN for £7.99 AND MGS4 for around £10 these days it seems pretty pointless to me spending £70 for it all.

    Also for those in US who don’t know, Zavvi was original a shopping chain in the UK which formally known as’Virgin Megastore’ but not too long after the re-branding in 2007 it which was liquidated in late 2009.
    The stores themselves were usually quite overpriced and online store still seems to reflect this. Now no longer has any connection to its original high street stores as some weird company called The Hut Group own it now after falling sales online.
