A mammoth package of classic stealthy espionage action, the MGS HD Collection offers five games for the price of one. Alongside Hideo Kojima’s eighties originals, you can enjoy Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, all in gorgeous high definition. Peace Walker would be worth the price of admission alone, but this is a brilliant, nostalgic packaging together of one of the most important videogame series. It’s a shame that the original Metal Gear Solid isn’t included, but beggars can’t be choosers.Konami has finally confirmed a release date for the PS Vita’s own version of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection with the title slated for a late June release.

The collection, already available on PS3 and Xbox 360, updates two of Hideo Kojima’s legendary sneak-em-ups in the shape of MGS2: Sons of Liberty and MGS3: Snake Eater, though disappointingly Vita users won’t get the additional MGS: Peace Walker as part of the bundle – most likely because it’s already available via PSN and Konami wouldn’t want to be gifting away additional sales now would they?

As with previous iterations the games feature all-new graphical make-overs, trophies and bespoke controls systems designed to make the most of the PS Vita’s touch-screen capabilities.

The Vita version will also introduce a rebalanced user interface and Kojima Productions’ unique “Transfarring” system for data sharing with PS3 units.
