Metal Gear Solid heads to PlayStation(R)Network

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced it will release four classic
Metal Gear Solid titles via Sony’s PlayStation(R)Network service.

The news comes as Konami gears up for the anticipated release of Metal Gear
Solid: Peace Walker for PSP(R) (PlayStation(R)Portable), and will begin with
the reissue of the original PSone version of Metal Gear Solid on November
19th, priced £7.99. Hailed as an all-time classic and one of the most
influential video games of modern times, Metal Gear Solid marked the series’
first move into a fully 3D play area, and established Hideo Kojima as an
iconic talent.

The release of Metal Gear Solid will then be followed with Kojima
Productions’ PSP(R) entrants to the series: Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops,
Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops +, and the innovative Metal Gear Solid:
Digital Graphic Novel. Release dates for these titles will be confirmed at a
later date.
