Konami to release Metal Gear Solid: Essential Collection for the PS2

Chris Scott Barr - Feb 6, 2008

Don’t set that PS2 aside just yet. Even though the console has been out since I was in high school, people are still pumping out new titles. It would be great if the PS3 still had decent backwards compatibility, but I digress. The next big release to look forward to is actually a collection of old games. The first three Metal Gear Solid games to be precise.

The release of these games is no doubt a move to build up excitement about the impending release of Metal Gear Solid 4 on the PS3. If you haven’t played one or all of these games, you can bet that it’ll be well worth the money. After all, it’s been labeled as one of the most successful games series of all time (even if it was Konami’s VP of Marketing that labeled it such).

We’re not actually sure when the Metal Gear Solid: Essential Collection will be hitting store shelves. However, we do know that it’ll set you back $29.99, which isn’t bad for what you get.
