I want the CE of MGS:HD and I have a feeling that the small amount of these that go to stores not as pre orders are not going to last long enough to get clearanced. Decision, decisions...

Anyone know if the camera is overhead or third person view for MGS 3 in the HD LE collection? I can't stand the overhead view when it was originally released for the ps2. I really want the artbook but kind of expensive. (a friend of mine said, just think of each game + artbook as $19.99 each).

Its gonna be the MGS 3 subsistence version, so its gonna have whatever camera that was. I only played the original MGS3 and thought that camera was fine.

Well I have no idea what to search for to make it show up then. Neither metal gear solid HD or metal gear solid hd collection collector bring it up in the results. Lame! Anyways, glad it's on there.

Subsistence lets you choose the player controlled camera or the regular Snake Eater camera.

Thats great.

I was wondering though if the collection will have the Metal Gear 1 + 2(nes) since Subsistence had them? I'm guessing it won't.

Pretty sure too, though sources say that here's what they won't have:

MGS2: No Boss Duel mode (boss rush mode where you consecutively fight bosses for a high score)

MGS3: No Boss Duel Mode, no Snake Vs Monkey/ape escape mini-games (since it's multi-plat they had to take it out of both versions)

on the bright side, Peace Walker will have co-op multiplayer (for those who didn't know). 2 for sneaking missions and 4 for boss fights, assuming it's the same as the PSP version in this sense.

I think 2 also still has all those VR Missions. This is such a huge value for all that you get. Even the CE is a good price because a high quality hardcover artbook alone would be worth $40+. <3 Konami!

Here's a pic of the Tekken Hybrid LE. Comes with an Art book and Soundtrack for $59.99 ($20 more than the regular). The Box art is likely still pending

That's not really bad at all for a hardcover art book of that size. If it were sold separately it wouldn't be much cheaper

There are a number of VG art books sold separately and almost all retail for over $30. Amazon does discount them however but they're still within the $25-30 price range

Here are some examples:

Art of Alice Madness Returns - Hardcover, 184 pgs, 34.99msrp, $22 on amazon
Valkyria Chronicels Design Archive - Softcover, 400 pgs, $49.99msrp, $27 on amazon
Okami Complete Works - Softcover, 288 pgs, $39.99msrp, $26 on amazon
The Art of Darksiders - Softcover, 288 pgs, $39.99msrp, $26 on amazon

I'm guessing the MGS HD artbook will be much rarer than any of those, so If you are a fan of the series you may regret missing out on it down the line.


to be fair, the MGS collection art book is a "mini" comparing to the full sized books listed above. IMO, the US version of the CE I'd quite weak for that price. The three games cost 39.99 like every other HD collections, so....

edit, it does look like a fill sized book, there's an outer box...

has anyone figured out yet if the arkham city CE comes with an actual game case? it isn't shown in the picture, so i hope it isn't just a slide in at the front of the art book or under the statue...that would be a bummer

Nope, no game case in the arkham city CE.

The last Tekken LE is still around, so I think it's "probably" safe to assume this one will be too.

Hmm...$30 more for the Metal Gear Solid Artbook with the MGS 2/3/PW collection. Might get it being a Metal Gear fan.
