Rumor: MGS Comes To PSN In July?

If this is true, Konami really has the timing down pat when it comes to their long-running and critically acclaimed Metal Gear Solid franchise.

For some time now, MGS fans have been hoping to see the original title that began it all hit the PlayStation Network. Of all the PS1 games that should become downloadable on the PlayStation 3, most avid gamers will say it's probably a toss-up between Final Fantasy VII and Metal Gear Solid. Well, it seems Konami may be prepared to announce the latter for the PSN! According to several sources, including PartnerNet and PlayStationBeyond, two rumors have surfaced: one, we've heard before, and it involves the possibility of an upcoming software update for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots that includes in-game XMB and trophy support. The second says MGS comes to the PSN next month, and if other sources can be trusted, it also comes to the Xbox Live Marketplace at the same time.

Now, if they release the original MGS in downloadable form one month after MGS4 drops, that's great timing, wouldn't you say? In addition, we're talking about one of the best games ever, so it makes perfect sense that Konami makes it available once again. It's kinda like a re-release in digital form...and the fans won't have any problem with that. We'll let you know if we can confirm this rumor.

I don't see what wrong with that. Unless your talking about playing MGS on PSP?

That would be awsome, a PS1 title on the PSN means it will be playable on the PSP (without remote play).

I have the first MGS on disc already, but i'll still buy it on the PSN if it comes out on there.
These games need to be available in every possible way they can be.

lol that's funny. tell me another one.
Considering the amount of alteration to the game that would have to be made just to get it to fit on multiple DVDs, i doubt it. Plus, power, SIXAXIS control and in-game references to the PS3 (Snake uses a SIXAXIS to control the Metal Gear MK.II), i'd say this one's not coming to another console anytime soon.

Oh, how I wish it was at least somewhat in higher-definition. I don't mind playing MGS emulated via PC, but playing it in its original PlayStation form is painful to my eyes. PSOne games simply haven't aged as gracefully as some PS2 games.
