    Default Metal Gear Anniversary Boxset

    This boxset looks really tempting to me, but I am a bit disappointed at a couple of things. First, the versions of the Metal Gear Solid games which they include. They have all 3, but not the Integral/Subsistence versions. That is a bit annoying, because even if you buy the boxset you have to buy the better versions of the games.

    On the positive side, this looks like it will be the only way to get the PSP Portable Ops game on the PS2. Also, the price is better than expected at abou 7000 yen or $70 bucks.

    Dammit. I clicked this hoping the VR Missions and stuff would come. Ah well. Its buy worthy to me. One of my favorite series.

    I'm still not 100% sure that it doesn't have VR Missions + Integral Extras + Subsistence Extras...but I browsed the back of the packaging and it doesn't say that it has those versions, so I'm relatively sure it's just the normal games

    I almost bought this today! I went to the shop and read the back of the box for further details about the games. It looks like these are indeed the regular versions and not the Integral and Subsistence versions, but they DID keep the extra disc with the emulated MSX Metal Gear 1/2 for Metal Gear Solid 3.


    I really want to buy this, but paying $70 for cool packaging an extra DVD (which might not have much on it), and a PSP port kind of sucks. I mean you get a lot of $70, but I still think its better just to buy Integral, Subsistence 1, & Subsistence 2.

    I really don't know what to do.

    Wow...just found out that the Metal Gear Portable Ops game is NOT a PS2 conversion but an actual PSP UMD Disc. Ok, this collection definitely is not what I thought it was. Still a nice boxset for a good price, but I am just going to collect all the individual games.

    Yeah, really PO on PS2, that was a good one.

    It's a nice set for true fans, but most Metal Gear fans wouldn't be crazed enough to buy this unless it had a real bonus or new feature, which sadly it does not apart from packaging.

    I don't know why I thought the Portable Ops was a PS2 Conversion...it just seems weird that a single boxset contains software for 2 different platforms.

    Oh well...


    Can anyone let me know what the difference is between different versions of Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence are? There seem to be like 2 or 3 different versions in Japan.

    this the best thing ever. They should put all the Metal Gear Solid ever made in the US in the boxset.


    Also this better come out in America. I also noticed Japan always gets better things than us (USA).

    Example:

    We get just the Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty Game.

    They (Japan) Gets : A Collectors Box that has inside: Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty Game, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substances, A 32 page book,and a Shirt.

    I was like I am really mad.

    Well Lets just Hope this Gets Released in the USA.
