    Yay welcome back Nyxus!

    Pretty much you can now play the whole MGS series in this day and age!! I’m glad so since back then i remember there was a shortage of the games being hard to find like MGS3 Subsistence and MGS2 Substance.

    Still wish Kojima would put back the missing content from MGS2 and MGS3 like Skateboard, Theater Mode and Secret Theater Mode, Boss Rush etc.

    Maybe the next collection for PS4/Xbox One 🙂

  • turkishgamer35

    actually this great franchise deserve more sales but we all know most mgs games exclusive one platform and released later for other consoles anyway can’t wait to see TPP numbers mgs4 exclusive for ps3 and game sells more than 6 million i think mgs5 gonna sells more than 10 million

  • Cipher

    40m sales . The Legend Continues ….

  • this reminded me of a question i had, does any one know if the PAL version of MGS in Spanish has translated text AND voices? or it’s only the subtitles?

    • Alberto Sánchez

      Yes, it is. Original Metal Gear Solid on PSOne is the only one of the saga with voices in Spanish.
