Konami has launched a Japanese website for Metal Gear Solid The Legacy Collection. They showed the boxart as well as the release date and price for that region. Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection will be released in Japan on July 11th, for a price of 7,980 yen (but it can be purchased at Konami Style for 7,182). This translates to a price of about 60 euro, or 80 dollars. Metal-Gear-Solid-The-Legacy-Collection-Japanese-Box



The item at the right is a 100-page artbook filled with Shinkawa’s work. Other than that, the bundle includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid Integral, MGS2, MGS3, MGS:pW, MGS4 and the two digital novels. Both MGS1 and the VR Missions will be distributed as a code for a digital version from the PSN store.

Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection will be released exclusively for PlayStation 3, as confirmed by Kojima.



Lock if old!

So they just ignore the non-Kojima entries altogether?

Kind of sucks... would have been nice to see the PSP stuff included in some form.

Great. Bet Konami can sucker in a few thousand to buy games they already own yet again.
This is a common tactic nowadays. *cough*Nintendo*cough* But it's why I'd want the digital versions of all the games. Don't need more disc copies..even though I don't actually own the discs.. some of the MGS stuff is on sale now with Plus but meh.

Not hyped at all anymore. I was HOPING for MGS1 on a disc with trophies patched in or even Twin Snakes. Now I see its just a PSN code? I'll pass!

High ROI. Why wouldn't a company want more money?

Twin Snakes, what??


Also, what difference does it make if it's disc-based or downloadable?

I regret buying the HD Collection now. :(

I have all the games anyway... I guess.
Me too :(

I mean, I've never played this series before (I just beat MGS2) but now I wonder if I should get this too? I guess maybe I could try trading the HD collection a month before this hits or something. I guess it depends on the price.

Is MGS VR Missions on EU PSN?
It's not on any store at the moment, as far as I'm aware, so obviously they're bringing it out soon. Well, they're bringing out the NA and JPN versions. I doubt we'll get a PAL release of the Legacy Collection and if we don't, it'll be VR Missions fault. Apparently the other two versions didn't have this "feature" but our version of VR Missions had an idiotic setup where you needed to put the MGS1 disc in every time you booted the game. I'm not sure how they could pull that off via the PSN unless they actually changed the game.

Hmm you are right, I only had the NTSC version back in the days but I remember the thing that said you need MGS1 on the PAL cover. I guess that would work if they gave MGS1 too in PSN, or just by giving the JP/US version.

$80 for an HD collection that goes for $30, a PS1 classic that goes for $10, and a 5 year old game that goes for $20. Where are the other $20 going to?

I doubt that Konami is going to sell it for 80.
Most of the time the JPN price is always high than the US price. I'm betting on a 60 dollar price tag. If they want to make it attractive to new fans of the series.

So tempted to get this, but I have all of it already (well, not the other digital graphic novel)

$80? :(

I wanted to start the MGS series, but not for $80

Can't I get it all for cheaper on PSN already?

A 100pg artbook and HD versions of the digital motion comic for MGS1 and 2?

As somebody who has the artbooks for Peace Walker and the crazy hardcover one for MGS1 to 3, I'm covered on that front. I have all versions of the games on offer except Peace Walker HD in Japanese and "patch-on-disc" MGS4 which isn't a bother to me (I can wait for a patch to download), and I wasn't a fan of the comic versions of MGS1+2 when it hit DVD so I'm not really starved for that on BD.
