Yeah, that's actually the biggest thing holding PSN back nowadays.


How is the inability to play dead games online the biggest thing holding the PSN back? The smaller user base and lack of headsets are both bigger issues.

Then explain to me why one of the best selling PC games of last year, World in Conflict, is basically dead online now.

PC games that have huge fanbases like counter strike, battlefield, CoD will have long term support because of players/clans who run their own servers. But as far as variety of older moderately popular games, LIVE is leaps & bounds ahead of all online platforms.


A dead game is a dead game. I have a bunch of "old" 360 games that I could leave online all day and never find a game. Dead is dead.

Holy shit. I was vacationing in Rehobeth Beach, Delaware and saw a sealed one with the second disc for $15. Passed because I didn't realize its worth anything.
If anyone wants to go pick it up its probably still there, at record and tape traders on the board walk.

Youre missing the point. Take Burnout 2 for instance. IMO an even more fun game than Burnout Paradise.

A game over 5 years old & I can still pop it in and find games easily. I can do that because it's online is indefinite. Who's to say if Burnout Paradise will have online in 5 years, I'd be willing to bet it wont on PSN.

Besides MG1 and MG2 is there anything else included in the original Subsistence release that can't be found in the Essentials Collection?


As previously mentioned, the demo theater (outtakes). Also, there are extra Snake vs. Monkey missions.

It says online that it COMES WITH 2 DISCS. So if I don't get both discs, I will give them hell:)


Actually, I don't see where it does say that on their website. Also, they do state that you may not get the original case/manual, and that includes "extras", being soundtracks, bonus discs, etc.

You can always return the game within 7 days to the local GS for your money back, but they're not going to magically pull out a second disc to send to you.

I don't just make things up, you know:) Look right below the "M" rating, after the text in red. It says "Game contains two discs".

My kmart had this for $20 new last weekend...I passed even new because I just don't need the extras. If it had been $10, I would have bought it. I could get the one disk essentials version for $1.00 used If I really wanted...my local store had several of them there for that price. Apparently a ton of people traded this in, in my area anyways.

WOW. If you could get it new for $20, you should buy a couple a and flip it on ebay. A new sealed copy of subsistence will earn you uber cash.

No. It isn't.

Thanks for pointing it out. I couldn't see it for the life of me. In any case, I hope that you do get both discs. You'll have to keep everyone updated. I'm just not too impressed with the whole of Gamestop. I loved my local store, but moved recently. The now local Gamestop looks like a rummage sale. I've never had good luck purchasing used games online.

There's an expanded demo theater mode that has some "trailers" of MGS4 and the Metal Gear Raiden parody videos. They're fun, but you'll probably only watch them once. MG1 and MG2 are the real treasures on the second disc.

Thanks for the answer. Looks like the MGS3 in the Essentials Collection is enough for me.

An update for you guys: I received both discs, and they were mint! However, no booklet or original case, as I feared.

I found a website that sells the case and booklet together for 3.99, although they charge quite a bit for shipping. But if a order a bunch of stuff from them... shipping won't be so bad.

Name of the site?? Do they have even older titles too? How about next-gen titles as well?

Theres alot from the seller bregamesmmcm3 on ebay too. They have a bunch of manuals, cases, and inserts for sale for the current generation and the last generation. I didn't see much for the psx/SS/N64 generation though.

They also charge like $4 shipping on top of $4 for manuals/insert. total rip, but no one else is selling this stuff, I guess.

Yeah you are right. It gets a little more reasonable if you buy multiple things, though.

I paid $19 in Gamestop credit for Subsistence. $19 + $8 for a complete copy is not too bad.

ordered 2 to try to get complete, came in the other day.
Both were disk only, well almost,

1 of them only had disk 2, wtf
the other had defective stickers still on them
returned them w/o problem - a warning though, didnt matter for me since paid online w/ GC, but in store, they cant tell payment method used, so will only give back store credit.

My copy arrived, but I only got the Essentials version without the second disc. I called the number on the Gamestop website and although the guy said he couldn't do anything about it, he gave me a $10 coupon, which is not bad. I'll be returning this copy to an actual store, though.

I bought one and it just came in today. It had the second disk, and I was lucky and got a case and manual too (though the case was worn and it was obviously used).
