Thanks guys, I really wanted this but not for 80. Online showed the mall had a copy. I went, the guy said they didnt have any. I said the online site says they did. He went in back and came back with it saying the manager had it on hold but gave permission for it to be sold to me. :-D so YAY

Guys does this only come with the art book, or is their some sort of DLC included with the game? Hoping for solid snake avatar gear.

It's just the art book. One of the malls here has it according to the site but I don't care for getting the art book and I already have a copy of the game. Also it's an half hour drive there, hour total so not worth the effort considering everything.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat and would love to know how to approach this. I have my gift receipt an opened 360 copy. There's a couple of stores near me with the same copy, does that help/hurt the situation?


Just go buy another copy and return it with your old receipt.

I just returned a gifted MW3 and grabbed the regular MGS HD set. I'm not really interested in the artbook, but $40 for three classic games, and hours of gameplay was a good enough deal for me.

For those wondering about which version to get, go with whichever platform you prefer. There really is no benefit to the PS3 imo. A lot of people bring up the pressure sensitive buttons (the face buttons), but those never really worked. Lightly tap square to hold your weapon and press it harder to fire? It feels awkward, all I ever do anyway is unequip the gun via L2 and re-equip with another tap.

So yeah, I have the PS3 version but both version should essentially play the same and be great.

closest store is nearly 100 miles away for the ps3 version, which is the one i really want. The xbox version seems to be in stock but Gamestop's online inventory checker is unreliable.

Me too man, I'm a huge Metal Gear nut but didn't wan't to pay $80 for the Limited Edition at the time it was released. Even though I got the standard HD Collection for PS3 on Black Friday, I decided to pick up the last Limited Edition for 360 at my local gamestop with the nice sum of cash I got for Christmas. :D

Its always been accurate for me. You can also just call the store to see if they have and will hold it.

PS3 version has "transfarring" (lame word) of save files for those who have PW on PSP, like me... the only benefit of PS3 version I see.

MGS2 and 3 are listed as separate games and therefore have more trophies than the 360 which lumps them together as one game and gives less achievements because of it.

I picked this up as well. They only had the Xbox 360 version, but that is okay with me.

My copy was gutted, but in very good condition. They had the game, and all of its contents, in a drawer behind the counter. I figured that when I got to GameStop I would find the Limited Edition box covered in stickers and with bent corners, but that was not the case.

On a similar note, I did pre-order the Zavvi exclusive Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Limited Edition that comes with a steelbook case and shirt. I am a sucker for steelbook cases and Metal Gear Solid. I wanted both Limited Editions.

PIcked it up for the 360 and I found little trouble getting used to the controls. I will say that despite it's somewhat antiquated graphics and gameplay mechanics, MGS2 is still a lot of fun to play!

I pre-ordered it from Zavvi.com. Just search for "Metal Gear Solid HD Collection: PS3 Limited Edition (Zavvi Exclusive) [PS3]"

My total was $112 after shipping. I live in the US so shipping was not free. The game comes out February 3. This version is on eBay currently for a buy it now price of $250.

There are only 10,000 of these being printed supposedly, 6,000 PS3 copies and 4,000 Xbox 360 copies.

That's cool, I collect videogame steelbooks, but I unfortunately can't drop the coin on that at the moment. I got the one from this thread just because I have so much credit at Gamestop.

You may want to double check, but the 360 is for the most part region locked. PS3 is completely region free.

No.

PS3s aren't region locked. 360s are IIRC.

From what I read, the Xbox 360 version of the Zavvi exclusive collection will NOT play on an American Xbox 360. However, the PS3 version WILL play on American PS3s.

I will probably keep my Zavvi version sealed since I already have the regular edition of the HD Collection. Who knows though, it will be hard to resist opening the box to check out that steelbook in person. :D

Not sure if the price was ever different than 69.99 GBP or this guy thinks it's the Euro, but it's actually around $111 right now.

I think the price has never changed iirc. I'm skeptical this will be worth that much more than the US version since people have bought up the US version by now so I wonder if its going to take awhile before the UK version sells out. I'm still on the fence to order the zaavi one. Thats a lot for this LE. Steelbook included.

Picked up a LE Xbox version. Seems like all the PS3 copies are long gone. Looking forward to playing these again with the sharper graphics. Looks like a mighty big art book too. Thanks OP.

I did the Zavvi preorder, but cancelled it. Didn't feel like hanging on to a mantle piece. Mine was $115 for PS3. I don't need non-playable mantle pieces, so decided to cancel.

If you ordered the PS3 version you wouldn't have a non playable mantle piece.

You would have a perfectly usable mantle piece....

Unless you meant 360 instead of PS3 then you'd be correct
