The PS3 version came yesterday evening, and the Xbo360 version arrived a day late. On top of that, there was some buzz in the grapevine that the Xbox360 version doesn’t work on local consoles. Well, I’m here to quash that rumour. MGS HD collection works just fine on Xbox360 (Asia).
Here are some pictures from the unboxing.
Instead of being stored in one Bluray disc (for PS3), MGS 2 and 3 are stored in the first disc while MGS Peacewalker (originally a PSP game!) sits on its own in a second disc. Perhaps because of the multiplayer and coop features, it deserves (or requires) the extra space.
Nevertheless, at 1080p, Metal Gear Solid looks very beautiful on the Xbox360 (and I would believe so on the PS3).
When launching both discs while connected to Xbox LIVE, there are compulsory system updates for both games, but that means you get two game icons on your recent playlist!
