MGS ported to PS2 for Collection

But still unconfirmed for Europe.

Metal Gear Solid will be shifted onto a PS2 disc when it is released as part of the Metal Gear Solid: The Essential Collection.

The PSone game was originally on two CDs, but Konami US has said there will be none of that when it ships its bundle on 18th March.

Interestingly the Japanese version is on PSone disc, as confirmed by our chief designer who owns it.

The Essential Collection contains the first three instalments in the series - Director's Cut versions of MGS2 and MGS3 - for an attractive price of USD 29.99 (GBP pennies).

Unfortunately Konami is still no closer to confirming it for Europe.

It's a double PAL face-punch after Sony Europe told us it had no plans to release a similar American Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 bundle here.

However, Konami did say there would be a Metal Gear announcement of some kind tomorrow. We can't possibly imagine what that might be.
