Donít set that PS2 aside just yet. Even though the console has been out since I was in high school, people are still pumping out new titles. It would be great if the PS3 still had decent backwards compatibility, but I digress. The next big release to look forward to is actually a collection of old games. The first three Metal Gear Solid games to be precise.

The release of these games is no doubt a move to build up excitement about the impending release of Metal Gear Solid 4 on the PS3. If you havenít played one or all of these games, you can bet that itíll be well worth the money. After all, itís been labeled as one of the most successful games series of all time (even if it was Konamiís VP of Marketing that labeled it such).

Weíre not actually sure when the Metal Gear Solid: Essential Collection will be hitting store shelves. However, we do know that itíll set you back $29.99, which isnít bad for what you get.
