Konami has officially announced Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection, a PS3-exclusive compilation of Hideo Kojima's revered stealth series. Included in the 25th anniversary bundle are eight games: Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions, and Metal Gear Solid 4: Trophy Edition. In addition, two digital graphic novels will also be thrown in. "We wanted to give Metal Gear Solid fans the opportunity to experience the series from beginning to end, all on one console," Konami president Tomoyuki Tsuboi said in the announcement. The MSX Metal Gear games can be unlocked in Metal Gear Solid 3. The version of Metal Gear Solid included in the bundle is the original PSone classic release. Finally, the two digital graphic novels appear to be HD ports of the original graphic novel releases for PSP. The compilation will be available on PS3 in June.

The digital comic will be available in 720p

      Too bad they didn't include a hd version of Twin Snakes for MGS1.

        With Nintendo developing it, it's impossible. Perhaps we'll see an HD version for Wii U?

        Pretty sure Kojima (rightfully) strongly dislikes that version

          I personally thought it was a brilliant remake. What are the criticisms against it?

            Shitty changes in music and voice acting, gameplay alterations that don't improve the game, and Ryuhei Kitamura's batshit insane action scene direction, which can be fun but doesn't really fit the game, especially since the original cutscenes were fine.

            Basically, it was a remake with a whole bunch of things changed and none of them for the better.

              Hm, I'll admit I haven't played it in a long time and can't really agree or disagree with you.

              LOL BEING USELESS ON THE INTERNET ;P

        Relevant quote: "That was a remake made by Silicon Knights. We supervised it but we didn’t create it directly and we wanted to make sure that everything in the HD Collection was canon. Everything that goes into there is something created directly by Kojima Productions and Kojima himself. So that is the reason why Twin Snakes was not included in HD Collection." - Sean Eyestone, Kojima Productions

      Hell yeah, having all the games playable on one huge bluray disc is awesome (I hope).

        I wondered that too. Thinking about it, they'd have to cut the wifi soldier recruitment. That was a pretty big feature, and one I used a lot.
