With me deciding to get a GameCube instead of a PS2 back in the day, I missed out on a lot of really cool games. I have a PS2 now but I still haven't gotten a chance to play both Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. I do currently own a PS3 but have not yet acquired a copy of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. The HD collection was a prime choice for me to catch up on some Tactical Espionage Action and with MGS4 going for sale on the cheap, money constraints have still prevented me from getting those particular disc. This latest announcement from Konami seems to solve all that.
Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection is basically the MGS HD Collection plus MGS4. Aside from the adventures of Solid Snake and Naked Snake's intruduction into the MGS series, Peace Walker is also part of this new collection. What really interested me is the inclusion of Ashely Wood's digital graphic novels. Since the word 'novel' is used in it's plural form, I am hoping that the digital graphic novel of MGS2 is also included as I have never heard anything about it outside of that first trailer that I saw that one time on GameTrailers. This legacy is a collection that I must own.
Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection is scheduled to come in June of this year on PS3. No word yet on an Xbox360 release but with the omission of Peace Walker on the Xbox360 version of the MGS HD Collection, don't get your hopes up.
