E3 : More info on MGS The Legacy Collection

Konami has published some images and a press release of METAL GEAR SOLID: The Legacy Collection. It will be available for PS3 on the 9th of July. More info below.

Press Release :


From the critically acclaimed director, Hideo Kojima,METAL GEAR SOLID: The Legacy Collection offers the most complete METAL GEAR SOLIDexperience ever. Featuring eight complete games, METAL GEAR, METAL GEAR 2, METAL GEAR SOLID 1, METAL GEAR SOLID 2: HD Edition, METAL GEAR SOLID 3: HD Edition METAL GEAR SOLID 4: Trophy Edition, METAL GEAR SOLID: Peace Walker HD Edition, and METAL GEAR SOLID: VR MISSIONS along with two Ashley Wood Digital Graphic, the Legacy Collection offers Metal Gear and stealth action fans a chance to experience all the heroic game play, compelling design and immersive storytelling of the MGS franchise in one complete package.

The “Metal Gear” series is the seminal work of Hideo Kojima, Japan’s master game creator, and the progenitor of the stealth action game genre. The series has become a global phenomenon, with over 33 million copies sold worldwide. The player controls a secret agent from an elite special forces unit who is sent on solo sneaking 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.

The MGS series is also known for its storyline, which blends seamlessly with the gameplay. The scenarios are based on extensive research and incorporate the drama of actual developments in society.

These elements have made MGS what it is today: a mature work of entertainment that transcends national borders and the confines of video games, and one of the leading products of the Japanese
content business.

No and no word if it will be. Better for you to check Amazon.com or an online store of the sort.

    Megido @GriftGFX: Id on't know. I didn't finish GTA5 but i felt like a LOT of the missions were complete throwaway garbage. The main story was mostly decent, but the rest? (11 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And right now there's a bit of a backlash against sandbox games in general. (25 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There are plenty of examples of poor open world games, but there's also stuff like GTA5. I think it's a bit more nuanced than open world = bad is all. (27 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @GriftGFX: I think you nailed it there though. "The best bits". Most open world sandbox games are filled with mediocrity and some good bits. (34 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yes.. that "build a world" part is where they design it. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: except not many are. they build a world, and stick quests in it. that's why open world RPG's quests are typically so shallow. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There's no reason an open world can't be curated and designed. The best bits of every good sandbox are. (1 Hour ago)
