Considering I haven't yet played the rerelease on my mgs:hd collection yet, I'm gonna hold off on mgs on a small screen

Weird choice by konami to have both ports so close to each other

Great game, not a great price. You can get the HD collection for $40 most places now. I don't think the 3D is worth it in this case.

Yeah exactly. That amazon thread is pretty worthless. I'm not sure why it is even sticked. Case in point:

For what it's worth, the HD port is a straight up port gameplay wise, while the 3DS version was adjusted with Peace Walker controls (ie, not MGS1-3 style controls).

I love metal gear ! That being said the hd collection has this game and two other metal gear games remastered for the same price (its been lower recently as well) making this 3ds port a waste of money if you ask me
Currently playing

I appreciate the post. I canceled my preorder last year after I played the demo and the controls made it unplayable. Hopefully they fixed it with the delay, I'll probably preorder if it pops in my gold box. Thanks again OP.

Agreed, I actually prefer the games get their separate threads like how it was in the past. The Amazon credit thread hasn't been updated in a long time. Thanks OP!!!

the MGS3 in the collection is a port. The 3DS version has the new control and other stuff.

I already had it preordered, but this news is icing on the cake. And I'm a huge MGS fan. Having MGS3 portable is worth a double dip from the HD collection. And its got new features, so double win.

Now playing: Bloodborne (PS4), Battlefield Hardline (XB1), Pokemon Omega Ruby (3DS), The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD (Wii U), The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D (3DS), The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (3DS), Skylanders: Giants (360), Pokemon Shuffle (3DS), Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (PS4), Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

That's BS. Go here - http://www.cheapassg...istory&t=238099 I've updated several times myself since then. The thread is very useful, imho.

I still appreciate any deal posted anywhere; So, thanks, OP!

Exactly. This is a great deal considering I had it ordered anyway. Now I hope it sells good enough for Peacewalker to get a 3DS version! Those that hate just don't have a 3DS, or can't see 3d properly, more than likely.

This isn't really a port. A port is the Shadow of Colossus HD collection, Kojima stated this will be a full remake for the 3DS like Starfox and OoT. http://www.destructo...ke-216803.phtml

I think it's funny how everyone is saying not to buy this because of the HD Collection being released, but they fail to factor in that this version (not a port, mind you) is on a PORTABLE console. Might want to consider that fact, people.

MGS3 is still my favorite game of all time, so I'll buy it no matter how many times they release it.

That being said, the 3D, extra features and portability make it worth the triple(quadruple?)-dip for me.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

HD Collection is coming to Vita as well (and includes more games).

I know they announced it for the vita but what do you mean by "more games"

It's basically the same as the PS3/360 version, so five games in total. I was comparing it to the 3DS version which is just one game. There isn't a release date yet but it's expected this year, as well as Z.O.E. HD Collection.

I'd still rather have this one for the extra features. I've got the HD collection once, no need to buy that yet again for no reason. Unless there's another LE, of course. Then I'd be forced. ;)

Oh I know, I'm not getting it again either. I just thought it was worth mentioning that if portability is the main reason and perhaps you're someone that's getting or is interested in a Vita over (or in addition to) a 3DS then there is that collection expected sometime this year.

In case anyone was wondering the graphical difference between the HD and 3D version here's a comparison picture.

http://www.gonintend...bii-d4nzgaa.jpg

The 3DS version looks better in my opinion. I was planning on getting the HD collection, but I think I'm going to get the 3DS version now. Also Kojima said that he might release MGS 2 on 3DS.

They touched up character models, but sacrificed other elements in order to do so. Basically, if you care more about how the people look you'll be happier, but if you enjoyed the environments before or were looking forward to nice looking jungles you might be really disappointed if you don't care about the 3D functionality.
