Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection Hits PS3 July 9th

Dalton Link's Avatar Posted by Social Media Manager, Konami

Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection for PS3

From the frozen Alaskan tundra to the jungles of Russia, the Metal Gear series has covered nearly every corner of the globe, with a story spanning over 50 years of history and four generations of consoles. And for the first time in series history, every core title will be available in a single box, starting July 9th, 2013 on PS3.

Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection contains every canon Metal Gear release to grace PlayStation platforms from 1998’s Metal Gear Solid to 2008’s Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots to 2011’s Metal Gear Solid HD Collection* — all for $49.99. Perfect for newcomers or collectors looking for rare titles like Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions or the Metal Gear Solid digital graphic novels, this is the most massive Metal Gear release ever created with something for every infiltration expert to enjoy. All of this is included in a lovely new package that includes a 100-page art book containing rare marketing art from around the globe!

Want to start at the beginning of the series? Boot up Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition and play the original (updated) MSX versions of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. Want to jump straight into the story of Big Boss without touching the original PSone and PS2 Classics? (A weird decision, but who am I to judge?) Pop in Ashley Wood’s beautiful digital graphic novels for MGS1 and MGS2 (first time ever released outside of Japan!) to get caught up with all the events of the Shadow Moses Incident and Big Shell. Did I mention it includes VR Missions? Three words: playable Gray Fox.

War has changed, and it has never been easier to join the fight. Keep an eye out for the release of Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection, in stores July 9th, 2013. You can pre-order now at Amazon.

*(containing Metal Gear Solid 2: SONS OF LIBERTY, Metal Gear Solid 3: SNAKE EATER and Metal Gear Solid: PEACE WALKER)

I’m guessing Metal Gear: resurgence will not be included in this?

This package would be super appealing on Vita, any chance on that?

As a huge MGS fan, I almost feel obligated to buy this, I already bought the HD collection special edition which has 75% of these games, and I own MGS4 already as well, but that artbook and VR missions will probably be the reason I buy this.

Question though, is the artbook the same or different from the HD Collection special edition art book?

SolidSnake725 said:

May 17th, 11:49 am

And this is why I got a PS3. Metal Gear Solid 4 was the main reason but Metal Gear as a series is the overall reason.

MisterX867 said:

Are the artbook and digital novels pre-order bonuses?

Shinogu126 said:

May 17th, 11:55 am

Is the 100 page artbook a first-press edition/preorder bonus, or will all copies have this artbook?

MaximusLimius said:

Hi Dalton,

Does this mean that Snake Vs Monkey will return in MGS 3 Subsistence since it is a PS3 exclusive? We got denied it in the HD remake :(


puntja said:

is MGS1 on disk or just a digital download? and if it’s a disk: is it a PS1 disc? Can I play it in my old ps1 and ps2 too?

efrc78 said:

May 17th, 12:10 pm

Hello, and thank you so much for making this collection, maybe this is an old silly question: are the MGS2 and MGS3 HD the PS2 Substance and Subsistance versions of the games?

“Did I mention it includes VR Missions? Three words: playable Gray Fox.”

Yeah… 3 whole missions totally 10 minutes of gameplay (That you have to work for about 2+ hours to unlock). Seriously? As much as I love the MGS series, and will continue to buy these ridiculous packs for the very few bonuses they offer, this is the first one I’m buying literally only for the damn art book. Everything else is pretty much the same as any fan already has, with no improvements (or bug fixes even) and it’s rather insulting that they keep doing this over and over much less trying to make it sound like the next best thing.

Wake me when Ground Zeros comes out.

It would be a good idea to add Snake as a DLC for Playstation All Stars Battle Royale. It would be a GREAT way to advertise this game and to make a lot of $$$. Snake is a really major request for this game as a DLC and a large community would buy and appreciate this.

Without Portable Ops this is not a Definetively Collection, is an INCOMPLETE collection, period!

Alastor424 said:

May 17th, 12:35 pm

Will MGS4 be released as a digital download as well? I really hope so.

TheGame1083 said:

May 17th, 12:36 pm

What Kojima should do is remake MGS1 with the Shadow Moses graphics of MGS4 Guns of the Patriots, now that would be sweet :-)

tusunami said:

Not sure about this 1 either must research it & see what’s the difference between this & the metal gear collection i bought last year or so.

you had me at VR missions

vSilentangel said:

May 17th, 12:50 pm

I’ve been meaning to pick up the current hd collection but, after this was announced I couldn’t wait for a release date. 4 days after my birthday? Perfect. Just have one question though that I didn’t really see in the post, is the book preorder only or does it come with any regular edition of the game?

XtemmA2 said:

May 17th, 12:57 pm

I really wish Metal Gear Ac!d 3 for the Vita gets some support to start.

Welmosca said:

May 17th, 1:04 pm

Fantastic stuff…I’ve been a MGS fan and playa since the 1st MGS on PS1…nostalgic times when me and my father used to play together…I would pick this legacy bundle if it wasn’t for me having all the games included…I would really love to get the graphic novels and the artbook but fans always get the things early so this bundles end up desnecessary when announced….but did you just said playable Gray Fox?….dear God thats irresistible….I may try to sell my games to buy this bundle.

MadDog1741 said:

Is this only available through amazon?

Kchow23 said:

May 17th, 1:16 pm

Not buying it personally since I already own all the games in the collection, but I am sure recommending it to my friends that have not played it :)

Kchow23 said:

May 17th, 1:17 pm

Is there any possibility that you guys could patch MGS: Peace Walker for PSP so it reads the PS Vita and enables transfarring with PS3? I would also love to see a new MGS or even MG Rising game for PS Vita.

overtwinny said:

May 17th, 1:25 pm

So have you guys officially considered Portable Ops non canon at this point? Nothing seems to mesh but you should at least give a shout out to Gene, awesome villain.

Captain_Nick said:

May 17th, 1:30 pm

Bit dissapointed that Portable Ops isn’t included. I know it isn’t directed by Kojima, but it is a canon game and I would really love to play it on the ps3 for the second analog stock.
Also comes as a surprise that a 2nd Digital Graphic novel exists, I always thought it had been cancelled but it was released in Japan?
I bought the HD collection a couple of months ago so don’t really feel like pciking this up, not full price anyway. Will the second graphic novel and the VR missions be available seperately in the playstation store as well?

GhostMachine1 said:

Any pre-order bonuses?

Airwalkinman17 said:

Metal Gear Solid franchise.

Best. Gaming. Series. Ever.

Bar none. Cannot wait to hear/see more of MGS V: The Phantom Pain!!!!!

Pre-E3 Konami is in a couple more weeks! Can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gizah said:

May 17th, 1:57 pm

Maybe this should have been released prior to releasing the hd editions and wasting money? Just a thought. I get it, money hungry but damn.

KnifingGrimace said:

May 17th, 1:58 pm

You guys need to port over the original Metal Gear Online from Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence and put it on the PS3. Few online shooters were as fun as that, and I couldn’t get into MGO on MGS4 before the servers went down. Seeing how great Castlevania HoD is, I don’t think it would be too difficult for you guys, so I’m going to keep my fingers crossed.

Armored_Oso66 said:

I have been waiting to hear this announcement and its finally here. like some of the other posters have posted i already own all of the games featured in the collection but i am more then willing to buy them all again to show my support for one of my all time favorite franchise. and this just adds more excitement for MGSV

obadele87 said:

May 17th, 2:25 pm

Is mgs1 going to be the ps1 version,or the game cube one?

TerraAshura said:

May 17th, 2:29 pm

I’m really glad this is a thing. I already own all of this so, sadly, I’m not entirely sure that I’ll be picking it up, but it’s great for anyone who doesn’t already own it all.

There is one glaring omission though: why no Portable Ops? I know there’s the name and everything but it’s still a canon entry in the series so wouldn’t it make sense for it to be part of such a collection? I get not including some of the non-canon entries like AC!D or Ghost Babel, but not having Portable Ops doesn’t really make a whole lot of sense to me.

If anyone needs any MORE encouragement to buy this collection… (if the reviews don’t speak loudly enough…) here’s my take…….. THIS IS THE BEST GAME SERIES E V E R CREATED. What other game takes on politics, love, friendship, genetics VS how SOCIETY shapes you, government / information warfare, and a REAL story about REAL war (this ain’t no COD war story) and the REAL implications of war, what is important to pass on to future generations, etc…… oh, and what game INVENTED the stealth action genre, and what game has the best action cinematics / choreography of any game OR even any movie in my opinion? MGS ; ) Only the “Kill Bill” movies can match MGS’s over the top + artistic action cinematics in my opinion, and no game / movie matches it in all the other areas combined.

Cant wait for this, I have all the games already obviously, but I will buy it for the beautiful artwork, to remember this great series (and to share it with my brother who never got into MGS….) and I hope it only becomes bigger in the future. MGS V you’re next!!!!!!!

Kchow23 said:

May 17th, 3:06 pm

I would love to have a game with Gray Fox as a protagonist in the same vein as MG Rising or even MGS… He is definitely one of my favorite characters. Also, will the Gray Fox DLC ever be up for download?

zzzSINANzzz said:

Hi does anyone know if this will be coming to the UK? Thanks in advance

Icestar10 said:

May 17th, 3:16 pm

I would like to see a PS4 version of this please! :)

Gamerzlimited said:

May 17th, 3:29 pm

Since MGS and VR Missions will be digital downloads, will they be two separate codes or just one?

fantasyplayer said:

May 17th, 3:39 pm

I would think hard about buying this because Metal Gear is one of my favorite. But to tell the truth I am a little aggravated with Konami and Sony with the lack of Metal Gear PO on the vita. So I think I will hold of buying anything until they figure out how to meet my needs on that first. Then I will meet there’s buy buying something from them. Not fussing about it is just thinking about the principal of it.

Happy Gaming Everyone.

WarioFan63 said:

Is this a confirmation that VR Missions will be released on the PS Store soon or is it just going to be available through the Collection?

jsnakelira said:

May 17th, 3:55 pm

We want Metal Gear Portable Ops and Portable Ops +, and the Acid games on the Vita!

BlaqMagiq24 said:

May 17th, 4:16 pm

I own MGS HD Limited Edition and MGS 4 and will still be picking this up. AND at $50? Come on how could you not wanna check this out? I kinda wish I didn’t buy the MGS HD LE because of this. Oh well I can still trade in MGS 4 towards this.

BTW I’m kinda surprised MGS Portable Ops wasn’t included in some way. It’s still canon, even though it’s not directed by Kojima. Anyway could you please make it compatible with Vita soon? PLEASE?

TubaDude49 said:

May 17th, 4:19 pm

Darn, I was hoping Snake vs. Monkey would return since this is a PS exclusive.

MercenariosVnzla said:

May 17th, 4:20 pm

can i have it for free :c?.

ALEX87PS said:

May 17th, 4:51 pm

MGS should get a HD remake!

and everything sould’ve been included on disc, I own all of this games, but probably will pick up this collection ;)
