Konami today shipped Metal Gear Solid: Legacy Collection for PS3, a massive package of MGS goodness that celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Metal Gear Solid franchise. The Legacy Collection includes a total of six games, one of which is a crazy two-fer.
The Metal Gear Solid: Legacy Collection carries an MSRP of $49.99.
The PS3-exclusive Metal Gear Solid: Legacy Collection includes Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition (which includes the original MSX versions of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2), Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions and Metal Gear Solid 4: Trophy Edition. In addition, the collection also includes two Ashley Wood digital graphic novels.
In the Metal Gear franchise, the player controls a secret agent from an elite special forces unit who is sent on solo stealth missions through enemy installations, vast jungles, and sometimes even the thick of battle. Alone and surrounded by the enemy, even a special forces agent will find it tough to come out alive. But that is the secret behind the series’ popularity—the cerebral challenge of figuring out how to avoid combat, and the thrill of sneaking through enemy territory undetected.
