Metal Gear Solid HD for Vita isn't HD

The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection just made it to the Vita, offering sneaking on the go. But contrary to its name, it isn't quite HD, failing to run at Vita's native 540p resolution, to boot. Astute pixel-counters have noticed a few graphical shortcuts in the game, but it isn't all bad news.

How many times will Kojima update Metal Gear Solid 3? In addition to the upcoming 3D version of Snake Eater for the Nintendo 3DS, the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is making its way to the Vita. But, in true Kojima fashion, the Vita version will be receiving a bit more than just added resolution.

In addition to cleaning up the graphics, the upcoming re-release of MGS 2 and 3 will take advantage of Vita's unique control methods. Specifically, the games will utilize Vita's odd rear touch panel.
