If you have been living in Alaska seclusion for the last couple decades, then you will absolutely need to pick up Konami’s Metal Gear HD Collection. Now confirmed, Metal Gear Solid 3 is the Subsistence version. What the hell does that mean? It means it also comes with the original MSX version of the first two Metal Gear games. This package is really only missing Metal Gear Solid (or Twin Snakes) and Metal Gear Solid 4 in term of completing the series. However, the PSOne MGS can be downloaded from the Playstation Store and MGS4 is available at every GameStop in the country. With this said, just about every Metal Gear game can be playable on your PS3.
See the official press release below for full details.
