Konami has just released the Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection exclusively on PS3. You are pretty much getting every Metal Gear ever made minus Portal Ops, Portal Ops Plus, the under appreciated GBC title, and Metal Gear Ac!d 1 & 2. The kicker is, all this for only $50. This is especially a friendly price considering that the HD Collection, which just has MGS2, MGS3, and Peace Walker, originally sold for $40. Official release below:
Konami announced METAL GEAR SOLID: THE LEGACY COLLECTION is available in retail stores in North America and South America.
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the METAL GEAR SOLID franchise, this PlayStation 3 exclusive package includes METAL GEAR SOLID, METAL GEAR SOLID 2: HD Edition, METAL GEAR SOLID 3: HD Edition (which includes the original MSX versions of METAL GEAR and METAL GEAR 2), METAL GEAR SOLID: Peace Walker HD Edition, METAL GEAR SOLID: VR MISSIONS and METAL GEAR SOLID 4: Trophy Edition. In addition, the collection will also include two Ashley Wood digital graphic novels.
“We were excited to announce this collection for true METAL GEAR SOLID fans,” said Tomoyuki Tsuboi, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “Players will be able to access all of their favorite titles and relive their favorite METAL GEAR SOLID franchise moments.”
The METAL GEAR SOLID series is the seminal work of Hideo Kojima, Japan’s master game creator, and the progenitor of the stealth action game genre. With more than 33 million units sold to date, the METAL GEAR series has become a global phenomenon. The player controls a secret agent from an elite special forces unit who is sent on solo stealth missions through enemy installations, vast jungles, and sometimes even the thick of battle. Alone and surrounded by the enemy, even a special forces agent will find it tough to come out alive. But that is the secret behind the series’ popularity—the cerebral challenge of figuring out how to avoid combat, and the thrill of sneaking through enemy territory undetected.
METAL GEAR SOLID: THE LEGACY COLLECTION is available now for $49.99 for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system.
