Online retailer Zavvi have snaffled up the world-exclusive rights for a Metal Gear Solid Ultimate HD Collection. The collector's edition adds Metal Gear Solid 1 and a copy of Metal Gear Solid 4 to the standard MGS HD Collection. Nice.

In total then, the Ultimate Collection is positively bursting with content. You'll get MGS1 (a code for the PSN re-release), MGS2, MGS3: Subsistence, MGS4 and MGS: Peace Walker. That's a whole load of MGS!

All of this loveliness comes in a special, individually-numbered steelbook casing, containing the games and five PSN art cards. It costs £69.85.

Metal Gear Solid Ultimate HD Collection is only available on PlayStation 3 and has a release date of 25th November. Want.

Already pre-ordered. Can't fooking wait! Did almost everything on Snake Eater (except a couple outfits I think) got all the cutscenes and unlocked the secret "naughty" video. Thought it was hilarious fighting The End, and having to leave it for 7 or 8 days or something, then you go back and he's died of old age. Fucking brilliant! HAHA!

This is so awesome though, 5 games at less than £14 each, plus artcards, plus a numbered steelbook limited to 4000 worldwide. I want it now!

5 possible platinums with this :)
That's if MGS4 gets trophy support, which was rumoured a while back

"MGS3: Subsistence"... Is the Subsistence version exclusive to this Ultimate HD collection? Not seen any news mentioning this as part of the standard HD collection...

look look, mgs1 is already released in ps store and u will get it from ther via the code so it's IMPOSSIBLE to have trophies.
Mgs4 has NO trophies, Kojima said they will add but they cancel it.

I own the old ps2 metal gear collection and MGS4 but that still sounds mildly inviting.

Wow, so about $100 for this? Not bad for 5 fantastic games!

Also, MGS1 and MGS4 won't have trophies. The MGS1 will just be a download code to get it off PSN, and MGS4 will probably end of just being a regular non-trophy copy of the game.

Still doesn't deter my purchase.

I'm starting to think "MGS3: Subsistence" isn't actually included and is actually the standard Snake Eater version of the game... There is no mention of it being Subsistence on the Zavvi site and some of the other sites that have mentioned the Ultimate HD package haven't mentioned it being Subsistence.

Also on this page, they have said something about the Zavvi page being down, perhaps because "the retailer scrambling to undo something it shouldn't have said":

Just borrowed MGS4 from a friend. Never played any MGS games except bits of Snake Eater. If 4 is good I might pick this up.

for those interested (everyone!) Hideo Kojima has a link on his Twitter page (!/hideo_kojima_en) to a sneak peak at some of the trophy images for MGS2 & 3, they look pretty cool, even get one for the Kerotan frogs LOL.

here is the image:

Anyone have history with Zavvi shipping to the US, is it reliable or wishy washy?

The way I understand my options from this article, thats my only choice for this edition, correct?

The Trophy's look nice better pic's then most other trophy's, looking forwards to picking up the HD Collection. Not sure if MGS4 will have trophy's.

I almost thought the article said they were the only one's who could sell the HD Collection, but it's only for this "ultimate" version. I'll keep my eye open for the regular HD Collection.

Never played a MGS game before, been pestered by a lot of people to give it a try. This seems like a great way to give the series a go. At the end of the day a 4000 run limited edition is only going to go up in value so it's a win/win even if I don't enjoy the games.

People. Seriously. It's a copy of MGS4 Greatest Hits, no trophies, a copy of the HD Collection, 3 platinums, and a code for the PSN MGS1, no trophies.

Source: I read the article and have followed more than one piece of news about the MGS series in the past.
