Metal Gear Solid HD Collection gets limited edition with special art book

Special editions of videogames have become the standard for even B-level games the last few years, but when publishers actually put together a nice package, we can still appreciate it. And we also enjoy when developers put some real effort into their HD remakes. Thus we were really excited to hear that Kojima’s fancy HD remakes of his Metal Gear Solid are getting the limited edition treatment.

Aside from distinct packaging, it comes with a 248 page book titled “The Art of Metal Gear Solid,” so we can hopefully expect some glossy Yoji Shinkawa drawings. The actual game you receive seems pretty unchanged, with no extra content added to the HD versions of Metal Gear Solid 2, 3, and Peace Walker. One important detail was missing however: price. The regular version goes for $50, so hopefully the Limited Edition price won’t be too far from that. It hits stores the same day as the regular version, November 8.

Also in the same press release, Konami continued to counter some rumors that were floating around. Despite what you might have heard on the net coming out of TGS, the PS3 and PSP save data transferring for Peace Walker is still included in the English language version. That’s right, Tranfarring lives!

    I'll obviously have to switch my pre-order over to the collector's, but I still wish it came with all the extra stuff from Subsistence, especially Metal Gear 1 and 2 (the real ones). Art book looks rad though. I wonder is it's 248 pages all of Yoji Shinkawa. That would make it even better.

    Still thinking about this one as I've played 2 and 3 allready, but I'll probably end up owning it as 3 is the best metal gear game out there and I haven't played peace walker yet.

    Have you played MGS4?

    Looks incredible. Wished they did add extra content since I already played it and did everything I could with all the games. Do I predict a giveaway in the near future. Yes Please!

    Yeah, some extra content would've been nice. Then again, getting to play MGS 2 and 3 again is enough to warrant £40. Never played Peace Walker, but It'd probably be good with two analogue sticks. NEKKID RAIDEN IN HD!

    Another HD collection? At least this one comes with Peace Walker.
