Recent Articles: Metal Gear Solid HD Collection

Gravity Rush, MGS HD Collection, Batman: Arkham City, more added to PS Store

This week’s PlayStation Store update is filled with thrills, spills, and chills!

If you’re looking for a thrill, Sony has a pair of Vita games to get your blood pumping: the gravity-defying Gravity Rush and the stealth action of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. A third Vita game, the augmented reality puzzle game PulzAR, is pretty thrilling as well.

If it’s spills you’re looking for, then you’ll definitely want to point your PS3 at the PS3 Full Games section to experience the high-flying theatrics of Batman: Arkham City or the off-road madness of Dirt Showdown. And if you’ve got two left feet like me, there will be plenty of spilling involved in any play session of Just Dance 3.

Finally, the chills are provided by the PSN god game Babel Rising and an Atlus RPG, Gungnir, that’s available on the PSP, a system that has chillingly rose from the dead for one week!

More information on all of these titles can be found after the break and a full listing of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

Vita version of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection sneaks into stores on June 12

Konami has announced that the Vita version of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will be available in stores on June 12.

The handheld version of the compilation will include Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. If you own the PS3 version of the collection, you’ll be able to transfer your save data from your PS3 to your Vita and vice versa, meaning that you can play the same game of MGS2 or MGS3 wherever you are.

That’s actually pretty awesome when you think about it.

New Releases: Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim, Super Mario 3D Land, More

They’re here. They’re finally here. This Fall’s three most anticipated games (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Super Mario 3D Land) are finally ready for release.

If the idea of fighting in World War III, slaying dragons, or traipsing through the Mushroom Kingdom doesn’t appeal to you (and if so, just what kind of monster are you?), there’s plenty of other options in this week’s new releases as few publishers are shying away from this 1-2-3 punch of awesomesness. There’s also…

Final Fantasy X HD, MGS HD, ZOE HD coming to PS3, Vita

Square Enix still refuses to announce an HD remake of Final Fantasy VII. However, remake fever seems to be contagious at the Tokyo Game Show and you better believe that Squenix is a carrier.

During Sony’s TGS press conference, the publisher announced that an HD remake of Final Fantasy X is in development for the PS3 and Vita. But don’t expect it anytime soon as Square Enix couldn’t say anything else about the project.

Hideo Kojima is no stranger to remakes either and Konami kingpin used the same stage to announce that both the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and the Zone of the Enders HD Collection will be released for the Vita in 2012. Both compilations will include cross-compatibility between the PS3 and Vita versions, meaning you can take your game save from home on the road and vice versa.

Japan’s got a fever, and the only prescription is more remakes!

Metal Gear, Zone of the Enders remakes also coming to PSN, XBLA

Konami got E3 off to a rollicking start last week during their first ever Pre-E3 Show. During the event, famed director Hideo Kojima announced his next two projects: Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and Zone of the Enders HD Collection. Both games will be coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360, but as the E3 Expo opens, Kojima Productions has another surprise in store for gamers on their E3 Special Site.

In addition to the retail releases, each remake package will be available to download from the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade as well. It’s unknown if the download versions will appear at the same time as the retail versions, but I’m sure Konami will announce more details about the compilations soon.

The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, which contains Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Libery, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, will be released in November. Bluepoint Games, the same team responsible for the God of War Collection and the Team Ico Collection, will be handling the development.

Zone of the Enders HD Collection, which contains Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner, will be released sometime in 2012.
