is there a reason for having a separate logo for MGS1 and MGS1 integral, but not having for substance and subsistance for MGS2 and 3?

Whoa, hold the phone. The Metal Gear theme is back?!?!

Thats the slightly remade one from MGS4, I believe. Its similar but exactly like the original. I guess they feel like its different enough.

The original theme is still present in MGS1/2/3 though.

Metal Gear trailers have this amazing way of always getting me hyped. Can't wait to grab this and play through the series again.

I'd assume because they were already known to be those versions in the HD Collection so they didn't specify it, that or it was just a oversight.

It's not the slightly rearrange theme from MGS4.

Edit: I went back and check. You're right.

Pretty much sums up how I feel about this collection :(
 
No real interest in actually buying this, but that was a pretty nice trailer.

Also, #teamportableops simply because of playable Para Medic (and conversely #teamfuckMGS4 for what it ultimately does to her).

it's obvious that this collection isn't for you. but a better collection for people joining in the series, or who haven't already purchased the HD pack.
 
I've only played MGS. This is perfect for me. So yeah, there are gamers out there who don't have all of these games in some form.

Personally I went and sold off my individual release copies of the HD collection and mgs4 to buy this. It's nice to consolidate everything in a sleek package and the bonuses are good too.

You can get it from either the existing HD collection disk or from PSN as a standalone title. The HD collection is probably a better bet due to having MGS3 and MGS2 HD... Honestly MGS2 doesn't look much different in HD , but MGS3 does look much better indeed.

Yes it's available in this collection as well as the HD Collection and yes it's very good indeed!

I'm only buying this for the graphic novels and the art book, but the trailer is making me want to play the whole series all over again.

Edit: Seems Metal GAF is a little too helpful :p

So you still have to load MGS3 to play the original 2 games and MGS1 is just a download code which means they did absolutely no work for this whatsoever.

No buy, Konami.

Thank you bros! Will get it then.

I do wish they would bring MG1 and 2 out to the game select menu. I don't know why little stuff bugs me like that, but it does.

It does because they're devaluing the games by putting them as extras in the MGS 3 menu, it's like they're not worthy of being stand-alone experiences that can be selected via the XMB.
 
Still kind of sad that Portable Ops is further treated as the red-headed stepchild of the series, but this is still the best collection of the franchise to date.

Same. Just really hammers it home how fucking cheap they are being and how much they are trying to milk fans/collectors.

Again, because there isn't a pre-made HD port they can just throw in for nothing. Twin Snakes should also be here but that would require effort of course.

I'm always confused by people that say they are milking a franchise with re-releases. This clearly is not meant for you then, it's meant for people who don't own these games like me.

Its just that they do it so often for MGS.

Not like it matters. I buy all of them anyways.

Re-relases are fine, as long as you don't go overboard with it. MGS 2 and 3 have been re-released 5 times, 2 this generation. It's getting to a point where it's silly.

They did the trilogy set right before MGS4, an HD collection, and now this. Wouldn't say it's a ton per se, it's just this one is coming close to the HD collection. Sort of how movies do it.
 
Portable Ops isn't canon anymore?

Yeah, it still is.

Metal Gear Wiki said:
While officially confirmed as a canonical installment in the series, Portable Ops is considered a spin-off game, despite the relative importance of events that occur in its storyline. As such, the events of Portable Ops receive notably little mention in official Konami press, compared with other installments in the series, which has caused some amount of confusion among the fanbase.

Portable Ops is not mentioned in the documentary Metal Gear Saga Vol. 2, though it is included in the timeline at the end, and footage is seen during the credits. The timeline on the Metal Gear Solid 4 website also mentions Portable Ops. Likewise, Metal Gear Solid 4 itself frequently used stills from Portable Ops in its cutscenes (made especially apparent with the EVA and Liquid Ocelot montage cutscenes in Acts 3 and 5, respectively) alongside the rest of the games, and artwork for Portable Ops by Noriyoshi Ohrai likewise briefly appeared in the church in Act 3 alongside other artwork by Ohrai, and some plot elements from Portable Ops were also referred to subtly (a notable example being the revelation that Zero founded the Patriots).

Despite being its chronological predecessor, the events of Portable Ops are barely acknowledged in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, though it was included in the Metal Gear website's timeline during Peace Walker's development. In addition, Kazuhira Miller says the line, "Now we can leave that crap at San Hieronymo behind," early in the Prologue mission of Peace Walker. This caused debate among fans, as to whether Miller was referring to the events of Portable Ops, in which he was not involved, or whether this statement debunked the events of that game altogether.

Unlike Peace Walker, Portable Ops did not receive an HD update, and thus was not included in any version of the Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection or the upcoming Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection. Kojima later revealed on Twitter that the reason why Portable Ops will not be included in The Legacy Collection is due to the fact that he was not directly involved in the game's development. As such, it remains confined to the PSP platform, while all other canonical games are playable on the PlayStation 3 console (the MSX2 games are included in Metal Gear Solid 3). It is also the only canonical Metal Gear Solid title to not be asked as a favorite of the player, in the upload screen of Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D. The MSX2 games are similarly not asked as a favorite of the player in the same game.

In a podcast for Kojima Productions, Kojima stated via his translator that Portable Ops is canon. The official website, likewise, kept Portable Ops on the Saga timeline, although only as a brief footnote. The MSX2 games were given similar treatment on the same website. In addition, the Japanese Konami site had a 25th Anniversary timeline that omitted Portable Ops, although it should be noted that in a previous timeline hosted by the Konami site, occurring around the time Peace Walker was in development, had erroneously omitted the MSX2 games from the timeline, leading to the possibility of it being an error on part of the Konami staff, and in either case, Portable Ops was still included in the chronology section of the site. In addition, two levels from Portable Ops were also included in Peace Walker's online mode, specifically the Silo Entrance and the Soviet Patrol Base.

Basically, Kojima's ego got in the way.
