Including Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, unfortunately fans of the original will have to keep playing it on their PS3 via the Playstation 1 game, because you won't be finding Metal Gear Solid in this collection.

However you do get the two games that started it all; Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake which were originally released for the MSX over 20 years ago, obviously these two are not be released in HD, but they offer old and new fans the chance to experience where the game's humble roots began.

The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is a colossal celebration of one the industry's true iconic series', whilst a lot of fans will not appreciate the lack of Metal Gear Solid, the chance to experience Sons of Liberty and Snake Eater on their current generation console is almost enough to forgive. Plus, a release on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 means trophies and achievements!
