The lights are on
Gamers already knew about the existence of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on Vita, but Konami hadn't announced any specific North American release info. That changed today when the company revealed that Snake and Raiden will hit your Vita in a matter of months.
Unfortunately, the collection is undergoing one major change from its console iteration: Peace Walker is no longer a part of the package. Instead, the collection only contains Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, though Konami says that the games contain "optimized controls designed to take full advantage of the PlayStation®Vita system touchscreen capabilities." Uh-oh. I hope they're better than Snake Eater 3D's "optimized controls."
Even without Peace Walker, though, those are two great games in one package. If you didn't (or couldn't) play the HD Collection when it hit consoles, then this will be a good opportunity to give your Vita a workout.

For the Vita?
It might do well, I guess...
i have never played a metal gear game but i have been looking for an excuse to buy a vita. I might pick this up
they could at least put the first one on it.
Snake Eater 3D's controls are perfectly fine with the circle pad pro in my opinion, but this is the type of game that would make me think about getting a Vita. This and FF Type-O
sorta makes sense, not including peace walker. i think its available through the psn for psp anyway, but he enhanced graphics and controls would've certainly been welcome. it's be nice if they released it for $40, since it is minus one game from the HD collection($50 if i remember correctly)
This is just what was needed to convince me to get a Vita
Now i can finally use the tranfaring thing
Good I hope more HD collections come to the Vita since I don't own a PS3, I know lame.
Well this should sell some units.
Ummmm, Peace Walker was going to be the main reason I bought that collection. Bummed.
Well can they at least optimize the version of Peace Walker I have from my PSP for my PSV? I would love to import my save file from my PS3!
No Peace Walker? That's sort of stupid. Sure, make us stick with the original version instead of letting us play the up-ressed version with better controls.
I was thinking about buying The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on Vita but knowing that it doesn't include Peace Walker I'll just buy the PS3 version.
I can't afford all of these remastered games I treasured as a child... They are making too damn many.
