Cheap Substance!

"Snake? Snake?!"

Solid Snake is set to return to the Xbox once again. But don't get too excited (as if you were), he's merely joining the Xbox Classics budget range from December 5th. If you don't already own Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, this is the perfect chance to get hold of Hideo Kojima's misunderstood opus in its definitive form, featuring as it does the original title plus over 500 alternative and VR missions, as well as the Snake Tales sections - alternative takes on events depicted in the main story.

Priced at €29.95 (about £20) you really don't have much of an excuse to pass this one up, although we expect you'll do your best to come up with some in the comments thread. Kudos if you can come up with reasons not to play it other than the lengthy cut scenes and codec conversations - this is Substance, not the original version remember!
