Kojima Discusses No MGS Collection for Xbox 360, Z.O.E. Status
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Metal Gear Solid series creator Hideo Kojima revealed on his Hideradio show on Thursday that the reason why the Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection set will not be released on the Xbox 360 is mainly due to capacity issues.
Kojima said that it would have taken seven DVDs to release Metal Gear Solid 4 on Xbox 360 (a system that uses DVDs instead of Blu-ray Discs). Kojima felt that a Legacy Collection without Metal Gear Solid 4 would not be a Legacy Collection, and therefore decided not to release it for the system.
In addition, he discussed the poor reception for the Zone of the Enders HD Collection remaster from users. There will be a free patch for the PlayStation 3 version, but not one for the Xbox 360 version for now.
He mentioned that the Anubis: Zone of the Enders 2 project was not in production anymore, and that the production team was dissolved. However, he also called out to fans for their input, saying, ”I will ask you all one more time if you want to play or not.”
Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection will retail for 7,980 yen (about US$81.50) in Japan on July 11. The 2-disc set will include Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid Integral, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. The set will also come with Blu-ray video segments titled Metal Gear Solid: Bande Dessinée and Metal Gear Solid 2: Bande Dessinée, as well as a Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Book art book.
