    From what I understand the demo fairly out of date so hopefully alot of the frame rate problems I had will be dealt with.

    Works really well with the Circle Pad and its added a bunch of things from Peace Walker. The 3D is nice but its not as noticable as it is in Resi. Not that the HD Collection is coming to Vita its kinda lost its main selling point as a full Metal Gear on the move.

    I honestly don’t know why they never considered re-building The Twin Snakes, add in some CQC and a few of the other ideas from the later games and it would be great, I know alot of people never got a chance to play Twin Snakes because of its original platform.

    I agree. Frame rate is quite low. I was expecting this to be fixed. I was in between buying the HD collection on PS3 and this… and now, I’m not so sure which one should I get.
