Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Game's Overview
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is a Action, Adventure, Compilation, Miscellaneous, Stealth, Game for PlayStation Vita. Metal Gear Solid HD Collection was Developed by Kojima Productions and Published by KONAMI This Game was Released in USA on June 12, 2012.
This is a compilation of remastered ports of Metal Gear video games released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011 and PlayStation Vita in 2012. The compilation contains Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater on all three platforms, plus Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker on the home console versions, with the individual games all branded as HD Edition. Bluepoint Games handled the conversions of Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 (with Armature Studio assisting on the PS Vita versions), while Genki worked on Peace Walker.
Following the release of the retail compilations, the HD Edition-branded versions of all three games were later released as digital downloads on the Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Store . The digital versions of Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 were released on August 21, 2012 as a bundle on the Xbox 360 and individually on PS3 and PS Vita, while Peace Walker was released for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on August 28, 2012, along with a full digital bundle of all three games exclusively for PS3.
The core play mechanics and story for all games remains unchanged with the HD Editions. For the remastering, all three games underwent graphics overhaul to allow them to support modern 720p resolution and 60fps framerate on home consoles,and qHD resolution on PS Vita. The PS3 and PS Vita versions have Trophy support, while the Xbox 360 versions include Achievements .
The controls for each game have been modified to suit the different configurations of each platform. Since the Xbox 360 and PS Vita version lack the pressure-sensitive buttons featured on the PS2 controllers, the ability to aim and lower a firearm without firing it in Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 are assigned to a specific button instead in those versions (either, by pressing the left stick on the Xbox 360 controller or by pressing the d-pad down on the PS Vita). The PS Vita versions in particular makes use of the touch screen and touch pad for various functions such as item/weapon selection, zooming in or out with the binoculars or peeking out of walls during corner view. The console versions of Peace Walker feature dual analog controls, allowing players to control the camera or their aim with the right stick.
Most of the additional features and content that were present in the Substance and Subsistence editions of the games have been ported to the HD Editions as well. These include the VR/ Alternative Missions, Snake Tales and Casting Theater modes for Metal Gear Solid 2, plus the third-person camera view and Demo Theater for Metal Gear Solid 3. The MSX2 versions of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake are also included, accessible from the main menu in Metal Gear Solid 3, with all the changes and additions made in the Subsistence versions.
The PS3 and Vita versions of Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 have a “Transfarring” feature, which allows users to transfer their save file between both platforms via a Wi-Fi connection or through a cloud storage, allowing continuous play of the same save file on a different platform. The PS3 version of Peace Walker have a similar connectivity with the PSP version of the game, allowing the transferring of save files through a USB connection.
