Update: We got a little confused with the press releases…maybe the small "UK" part should've been a trifle larger, or maybe we shouldn't have gotten it at all, being in the US. Whatever. The release date for this country is still November 8.
Well, at least it gives us more time to tackle the new AAA titles, right?
We're trying to be optimistic, because we have the disappointing news that the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 has been delayed; it was originally slated to launch on November 8, and it has now been pushed to February 3.
If you didn't already know, this assembly of revamped classics includes Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty , Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater , and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker . The original MGS isn't included because as Kojima said a while back, it quite simply would've taken too much time, as it's a much older PS1 game and the other titles are from the PS2 and PSP.
However, if you purchase the limited Ultimate HD Collection, you'll receive a code to download the first Metal Gear Solid from the PlayStation Network. And oh yes, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is also included in that package. Yeah, we have to wait until next year but we can be patient.
P.S. Any chance this one was delayed because they didn't want to release it on the same day as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3?
