Rumor: Metal Gear Solid HD Trilogy Sneaking To PS3
Sure, the old Final Fantasy games would look incredible in high definition, but don't forget about the other awesome franchise: Metal Gear Solid.
HD overhauls are a big deal this generation and it seems Konami is preparing to bring MGS classics from past generations into the high-res limelight. According to "insider whispers" heard by the UK's Official PlayStation Magazine, Snake is "in the facelift queue," and the "first three" MGS titles will be remade in HD. We have no other details at this time - is it physical or digital product? - but the rumor is still quite encouraging. So far, we've only had one MGS in HD, and that was the 2008 Kojima masterpiece, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Wouldn't it be great to have the original title, Sons of Liberty and Snake Eater as HD versions in our libraries? It also might give newcomers to the series another reason to explore the classics, although we wonder if high-definition could make the first MGS appealing to younger gamers. Anything on the original PlayStation might have to be entirely overhauled from the ground up...you know, like that FFVII remake they're working on at Square-Enix.
Anyway, we'll let you know if and when this gets confirmed. We'll also be interested to learn all about Kojima's new mysterious project...
