Metal Gear Solid 1 Being Ported to PS2 for Essential Collection
A couple weeks ago, Konami announced that they would be releasing the first three Metal Gear Solid games as a single package on the PS2. At the time, they didn’t elaborate on the full details of “Metal Gear Solid: The Essential Collection,” but we’ve now learned a couple new things thanks to GameAlmighty.com. For one, the first MGS will be presented as a port, thankfully eliminating the need for any disc swapping or old memory cards. Unfortunately, it will still be the PS1 version, as opposed to the Twin Snakes remake that came out for the Gamecube. On the plus side though, the other two Metal Gear Solids will be in their expanded “Substance” and “Subsistence” versions, which adds almost two extra games’ worth of bonus material. If you haven’t experienced these games yet, this is a definite must-buy for any PS2 owner when it comes out.
