Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker getting 60fps upgrade for HD collection

Snake's rugged good looks aren't the thing getting an upgrade for the Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD remake. Andriasang today spotted tweets from director Hideo Kojima confirming the third game in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid HD collection will clock in at 60fps, outpacing the PSP original by double.

"60 frames per second in HD... it's the best! Say peace!" wrote Kojima, later adding, “Ooh, HD, 60 fps, and vibrancy! Moves smoothly! Recoil of the gun is fun! It seems she wants to have a word as well.”

The tweets came with two new character screenshots from the Japanese build:

Earlier this year year, Kojima announced Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater would also sport 60fps speeds, and in a tweet this month he noted it had also received some fresh voice work. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, the third and oldest game in the forthcoming value pack, was originally developed at 60fps, and will therefore be left as is.

Due November 2011, the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is being developed by Bluepoint Games and Kojima Productions for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The added 'transfarring' feature will also allow PSP owners to swap their Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker games between the PS3 and the handheld.

    I am going to play the hell out of Snake Eater until the disc melts from the heat of the console.

    Can't await for this, fucking love 2&3, and I never got a chance to play Peace Walker due to not owning a PSP. Seeing Naked Raiden in HD glory will totally make me forgot that MGS Rising hasn't had any NEW news in MONTHS. *fap fap fap*

    @kassmageant - I think one for constantly thinking 'why can't you be Snake?' would be far more likely. Not to mention easier to get. I got Peace Walker on the PSP and, while I loved it immensely, it gave me severe cramps and quite possibly severe arthritis. Glad to see it become playable with a real controller but I'll also be excited to see the co-op options, personnel trading, etc flourish with huge communities like XBL and PSN. This is wonderful news indeed.

    I hope it has 3D support too @kassmageant: All new games must have trophy/achievement support
  • kassmageant - July 30, 2011 8:01 a.m.

    i wonder if achiv's/trophies will be per game, or for complete package, like orange box. they should make one for watching raiden's and rose conversations with straight face.

    i love hearing people say they hope for 360 to get MGS4. its hilarious. people need to understand that it is IMPOSSIBLE for it to happen, even if kojima wanted to
  • papergoon - July 30, 2011 1:36 a.m.

    DID I JUST SEE A 360 CONTROLLER? OMG KOJIMA, SELLOUTS!!! nah I kid I kid. It's really great to see that great games are going to both consoles. There shouldn't be game discrimination against any type of console. (maybe except the wii)
  • Defguru7777 - July 30, 2011 12:34 a.m.

    I was already excited about finally getting to play MGS 2 and 3, but now I'm getting Peace Walker HD, too? I'm genuinely happy.
  • Bobo93 - July 30, 2011 12:19 a.m.

    Hopefully this eventually leads to the 360 getting MGS4........................what? i man can dream cant he ?!?!
  • BurntToShreds - July 29, 2011 10:52 p.m.

    I found MGS Subsistence for the PS2 last month, and I love it. I can't wait to play it with the upgraded graphics!
  • Plan10FromOuterSpace - July 29, 2011 10:38 p.m.

    I read this article literally praying to hear the words 'on xbox 360', since ive still heard nothing of Metal Gear Solid Rising this will finally give me the chance to at least play some MGS on my xbox, roll on November!
  • AttroPheed - July 29, 2011 10:32 p.m.

    I should fucking hope a 'modern' console can run an up-rez'ed psp game at 60FPS.
  • kassmageant - July 29, 2011 10:10 p.m.

    @ BigWillis yeah, good point, it's all konami after all, and it's not like sony have exclusive deal or summfin cause there was this wii game...
  • statutoryreparez - July 29, 2011 10:02 p.m.

    Obligatory mgs rising comment here
  • BigWillis - July 29, 2011 9:32 p.m.

    I'm still puzzled as to why this AND Zone of the Enders HD is coming to 360 but no Silent Hill? It's so wierd. Anyway, this looks ace.
  • kassmageant - July 29, 2011 8:41 p.m.

    so glad this is coming to xbox :D this and skyrim will help me forget that i won't get uncharted :)
