Just got the Platinum on MGS2...so hard and frustrating, yet so rewarding. I had never played these games on PS2, but as soon as I started MGS2, it catapulted into my top ten all time. Absolutely love it.

There was a Limited Edition but it was actually Limited.

You're way, way too late for the LE, but for those of us who buy video games to play them this is still a great deal.

I'd play the LE too I just can't pull the trigger on a HD coll for more than $25 unless it's special. I've got all the others for $20 or less so no need to break the streak.

But this game has online game play and there probably won't be as many people playing when it drop to $20

I have a 10 dollar credit from amazon from a problem I had with an order. Would I pull the trigger on this for $20 or should I get the vita version? By the way, I haven't ever played a metal gear solid game all the way through.

The Vita is still $40 so get the Ps3 version.

I would probably get the PS3 version since it also includes Peace Walker.

More importantly you'll want to play these games at home since there are 10, 20, 50 minute long cut scenes and these games aren't really meant for pick up and play on the go.

In my opinion, MGS is a series you want to kick back your feet and enjoy the experience on a large television with surround sound.

those of us that don't give a crap about online play can afford to wait for $20 or less

This dropped before Black Friday last year and has held its MSRP longer than any other non-Sony HD collection. I don't see it for $20 in the near future, esp. since they just launched it on Vita with cross save support, are (it seems) going to patch MGS4 with trophy support, and have Revengeance coming soon.

Maybe it'll be slashed as a promo for Reveangance, but it's not like it's going to be cleared or blown out with this much franchise activity.

Revengeance is not a Metal Gear Solid game ;)

If people are jumping on this @ $30 then tons will when it's $20 too MGS games have legs. And they way BB has DOTD's & pm'ing it won't be much longer. Black Friday is any week day now.

helluva idea i lost my receipt but they say they should be able to look it up

If you used your RZ card for the transaction use the myRZ site & print a duplicate.

it'll drop they always do & it doesn't have to drop to $20 there's always b2g1 or flip with a $30 price that can get it there. At $30 from BB I'd almost bite since I'd have 60 days to pm which I believe would get me there.

Did you seriously come back to a thread for a deal you aren't interested in just to argue with people...?

That's amazingly pathetic, haha. You must have a lot going on in your life.

Actually I can back to help the 2nd person find out how to get his duplicate receipt. And I make a point to follow-up in threads that I post in since my inbox get ?'s based of the replies that I make. And just b/c I'm not interested in the deal doesn't mean I don't refer people to the deal especially ones that have AMZ credit since it would make the game the same $20 that I'm looking for. If I still had some AMZ credit left I'd actually do the deal myself.:roll:

And you posted this completely non-productive comment because you have nothing better to do? Enuf frequently posts deals/advice to help out other cags, and I appreciate his efforts (especially his Best Buy expertise)

Whoa...I thought that mgs4 was the only one with 30+ min cut scenes? Do all of the Mgs games in this collection have long cut scenes? Or is it just a few of them?

Yes & a lot of codec dialogue. That's the only real criticism about the MGS franchise but overall its a A+++ series. I dunno about PW though since I haven't played it yet.

Just a bit of a warning to everybody. I bought this a while ago when it was on sale for $30 again, but for some strange reason Amazon mailed me the EU version! So make sure you get the correct regional version. I cursed out Amazon & they only gave me a $6 refund! -_- I'm not that upset though, since the EU version is 99.9% the same as US. I've played all previous MGS games (except PW) & I really couldn't tell any real difference.
