Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is a compilation of remastered ports of Metal Gear video clip games launched for PlayStation 3 as well as Xbox 360 in 2011 and also PlayStation Vita in 2012. The compilation has Metal Gear Solid 2: Children of Liberty as well as Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater on all three systems, plus Metal Gear Solid: Tranquility Walker on the house console variations (outside Japan), with the private video games all branded as HD Edition. Bluepoint Gaming took care of the conversions of Metal Gear Solid 2 and also 3 (with Armature Workshop assisting on the PS Vita and also the NVIDIA Shield TV versions), while Genii functioned on Tranquility Walker.
The loss of Metal Gear Solid 2 & 3 due to licensing renewals is only temporary, but a close time INAMI can not mention anyway.
Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3 are from today for some time from the online shops of the consoles and on the various download platforms for the PC. This step is necessary, because INAMI must renew the licenses for the historic material that the Japanese manufacturer has used to help the history of games with real facts. In addition to the two games, all collections and bundles are also affected, which contain one or both games.
In detail turns around the following titles in the series:
PlayStation 3 — Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty HD Edition PlayStation 3 — Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater HD Edition PlayStation 3 — Metal Gear Solid HD Edition PlayStation Vita — Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty HD Edition PlayStation Vita — Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater HD Edition PlayStation Vita — Metal Gear Solid HD Collection PlayStation Now — Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Xbox 360 — Metal Gear Solid HD Edition: 2 & 3
Nintendo 3DS — Metal Gear Solid — Snake Eater 3D Gog.com — Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance NVIDIA SHIELD — METAL GEAR SOLID 2 HD for Shield TV NVIDIA SHIELD — METAL GEAR SOLID 3 HD for Shield TV
How long it will take until the games will be available for download and thus also available for purchase, is unknown. INAMI therefore asks for patience until you can sneak back as a Solid Snake by the area. If you already own the games, there are no changes, and you can continue playing as before.
