Konami reveals Metal Gear Solid, Zone of the Enders and Silent Hill 'HD' Collections

Konami's Hideo Kojima has revealed HD collections for three of its most beloved franchises: Metal Gear Solid, Zone of the Enders, and Silent Hill. The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will come to both the Xbox 360 and PS3 and include Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Strangely, the original Metal Gear Solid is absent from the collection. The game had previously been revamped for release on the GameCube by developer Silicon Knights in Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes. The Metal Gear Solid Collection is scheduled to arrive this November. As expected, the Zone of the Enders HD Collection packs the original Zone of the Enders and ZOE 2: The 2nd Runner on the Xbox 360 and PS3. ZOE Collection will arrive sometime in 2012. On the PlayStation 3, the MGS and ZOE collections will include a "Transfarring" feature. In MGS, the feature allows users to transfer Peace Walker saves from the PSP to the collection. The new technology will also allow players to transfer file saves between the platforms to allow for play on the PSP at one moment and then "transfarring" the save to the PS3 to play the same save file on the television.

Kojima reveals the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for Xbox 360 and PS3, coming November 2011.

Details on the ZOE feature were not revealed; however, deductive reasoning tells us that the collection will allow save files from the classic games to be imported in the collection (provided you own a backwards compatible system or a memory card transfer kit), at the very least. Konami notes it will detail ZOE's "Transfarring" feature soon. Lastly, the Silent Hill Collection will bundle Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 along with a fresh coat of HD paint. No platforms were revealed.
