:360: http://www.newegg.co...VirtualParent=1

:ps3: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16879248097

Don't know that the :360: version ever went OOS, but I know the :ps3: version did. Don't forget, if you use a Visa card to pay use V.me and promo code VMEPROMOMAR13 to bring the total down to $25.19.

!EDIT: Seems the :ps3: version is OOS again already.

Not sure, I do know they require you to type in your email before the code, it says some codes are limited use. But hey, this collection for $25 brand new? It's seems to be going rare, so if you haven't used the code yet and want this I'd say jump on it.

When this went on sale at Best Buy I visited four different stores that all had the Xbox-360 version. Sadly all I wanted was a PS3 version and I never saw one. I guess the demand is just greater for the PS3 version.

Yeah, the :ps3: version has better controls because of the pressure-sensitive buttons that the :360: controller doesn't have.

Ironic seeing as how MGS is a PS3 series...what were they thinking.

Seeing as how it's getting hard to find and is apparently out of print, I would say yes. Also, these are very good ports. They're not slopped together like some of the other collections.

Currently playing:

Includes Metal Gear 2, 3, and Peace Walker. The original is available on the PS store, though. It should also be noted that 2 is the Substance verison, and 3 is the Subsistence version. Oh, and the MSX versions of the old Metal Gear 1 & 2 games are included with 3. So 5 games in all if you count those.

I think he means Metal Gear and not Metal Gear Solid. IIRC Metal Gear 1 & 2 are in included as bonuses within Metal Gear Solid 3's menu.

The original Metal Gear 1 and 2 ( on like the really old systems) is on the Metal Gear Solid 3 substance disc which is the version of Metal Gear Solid 3 in the HD collection. Metal Gear Solid (originally on Ps1) is not in this collection. It is available on PSN.

Yeah I think you're right, that makes more sense. Hope some were able to get in on the :ps3: version before it went OOS again. $25 after the promo code was just the right price for me.

Anyone played MGS1 lately? Does it still hold up, or would I be better served just skipping it?

MGS1 is essential in story. Your better off playing MGS twin snakes(a GameCube remake is mgs1) but I know those are hard to come by, so I would recommend you watch youtube videos to understand the story unless your ok with the mgs1 graphics(which there is a nostalgia moment in mgs4)
P.s. metal gear 1 and metal gear 2 have characters that show up or are mentioned in mgs 1 fwi

Thanks. The only one I've ever played is MGS4 (I know, I know) and even though there was a good bit I didn't understand, it's still one of my all-time favorites. I guess I'll just youtube the first one. The only PS1 games I really enjoy going back to are RPGs.

It might not matter to you but I suggest if you want to watch a walkthrough of Metal Gear Solid to watch Xcalizorz. I don't usually watch Youtube walkthroughs but I found his very entertaining :P

Cool, I have this collection but will probably never get to it because of absurdly huge backlog. But this sounds like a great collection if it has MGS2S and MGS3S. :)

I ordered from Kmart for $29.99. Shipping was only $0.99 and it arrived in four days.
Too bad the case was empty when I opened it. Now I get to deal with customer service. *sigh*

Ugh! Makes me feel better about paying $29.99 on Amazon (shipped by J&R) only to have the collection arrive with a $27.99 sticker on it!

You just freaked me out since I bought it from them too but didn't open it. So I checked it out and it was in the case.

To the "If I send you an offer via PM, please respond to it even if you aren't interested" guy, I'm still waiting to hear back from you after I sent you a PM in July of 2009.
