Epic Miscommunication! Metal Gear Solid 1 Will NOT Be Ported to the PS2
Well, shucks. Yesterday we covered a story from GameAlmighty.com stating that the original Metal Gear Solid would be ported to the PS2 for the upcoming Metal Gear Solid: The Essential Collection. Now GameAlmighty has sent us word that they received a message from Konami saying that their rep misspoke:
“So it looks like there was a miscommunication about the format for the games. I recieved this note from Konami’s Michael Shelling – ‘…to be clear, MGS1 is not a port; it’s the original game on 2 CD’s not a DVD.’ The original Metal Gear Solid will be appearing on PS1 discs. What this means for saving the game, etc, I am not sure.
My apology for the confusion.”
So the full package will apparently contain four discs: two for MGS1, one for MGS2: Substance, and one for MGS3: Subsistence. You know, it’s nice that they’re re-releasing these classic games as one package, but you think they could’ve done a bit more than just shove all the discs into a box. At least add something to entice fans who have already played through these games.
