Word has come via Siliconera.com that the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is coming to North American Vitas this June.
And, second time around, it’s still missing the original Metal Gear Solid, and Peace Walker is off the table as well.
Doesn’t Konami see what a golden opportunity this is? By including those two games they’d make the Vita version the ultimate Metal Gear Solid collection.
Maybe they’re saving Peace Walker HD for a separate SKU, but that would bite. Peace Walker was part of the PS3 and X360 package, why can’t it be on the Vita as part of the same basic package? It would make perfect sense, wouldn’t it? Especially since Transfarring has been confirmed between the the portable and console collections. Maybe they just can’t fit all the games onto the same Vita cartridge. That’s a reasonable excuse, I guess, but it just seems super odd that they’re leaving Peace Walker out of the Vita equation altogether. It’s not even available on the Vita’s online store.

What doesn’t make sense is the slapdash job SEGA did bringing these games to the system [...]

OK, I realize that every game has there preferred platform to play their favorite titles, but seriously, is anyone clamoring to relive their childhood memories on the iPhone/iPod touch? SEGA thinks so, and apparently deemed it a fine time to launch a classic gaming portal that’s set to arrive in the App Store in February. [...]
Mega Man 10 wasn’t the only hot retro game that Capcom had on display at CES 2010.
