Apart from the excellent Gravity Rush about a week ago, PS Vita owners have not had much to keep busy in the past few months. It is probably why Konami decided to port its Metal Gear HD Collection to Sony's handheld, unfortunately not without forgetting Peace Walker in the process. There are most probably economical reasons for this, since the game can be pruchased on PS Store in its PSP version, and it's a shame, but you still get a lot of content from the two games available. MGS 2 comes with the extra Missions (VR and alternative) and the Snake Tales, while MGS 3 feature the old MSX2 episodes (Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake).
A few words on the quality of the port before you watch our high quality videos. Graphically, the two games are very faithful to the original versions, with great attention to detail, few aliasing issues and nice character models. The HD label enhances the overall look of the game, and although shadows are not as sharp as they are on 360 or PS3, MGS 2 and 3 both look good on the 5 inch screen of the Vita. Framerate is also very smooth most of the time, and from what we can tell, it runs at 60 frames per second in almost all circumstances. Sure, both titles clearly don't look as impressive as recent games like Golden Abyss, but the visuals are nice enough for a handheld device if you ask me.
not even uber anymore.. GTX 570 OC may get replaced next year. Maybe. It still kicks ass but paired with a 120hz panel I'd like even more performance out of bf4. (53 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: I don't blame you. Don't you already have some uber pc setup? You don't need a ps4/x1 to play the new titles at the best quality. (57 minutes ago)
I want a new console but I don't actually know why yet. No one is really offering me anything new. (1 Hour ago)
It wouldnt fix the fact the console is more about sports and TV then gaming, but at least then i could get on board to play whatever exclusives it may have. (1 Hour ago)
They'd need to do a 180 on all the negative news. No required online, no required kinect, allow used games, etc etc. (1 Hour ago)
@KORNdog: agreed. I'm left hoping sony doesn't pull any used game bs and the new dualshock controller is actually functional this time. If not then next gen is fck'd by sony, m$, and nin. (1 Hour ago)
I mean, if the show was all we saw or heard, i'd just be waiting on E3 to show more games. But its the console and shitty practices that have put me off. (1 Hour ago)
