234w ago - Konami has made their Thursday announcement in this week of celebration. The original Metal Gear Solid has arrived on the PlayStation Network for $9.99.
This will give gamers who never had the opportunity to play it originally the chance to be Solid Snake in his first adventure from the original Sony PlayStation console.
To quote: Classic PSOne title Metal Gear Solid will be available on the PlayStation for purchase. Compatible with the PSP and PS3, this will give gamers a chance to see where the legacy of Solid snake began on the PlayStation. MGS will sell for $9.99.
Aside from Metal Gear Solid, Konami has also opened the Rookie Campaign in MGO. During the campaign, players who register a new account (Status determined based on PS3 hardware ID) will be rewarded 5,000 reward points which you can use to purchase in-game gear.
In addition, Rookies will also get a free copy of Codec Pack 1, which adds various in-game communication features to coordinate with other players.
Tomorrow will be the last day of announcement and many are hoping it'll be a trophy patch.

hmm that's weird because I remember that you had to contact meryl after the ocelot battle or something and it wasn't given away in the game, you either had to find out yourself te hard way by checking every freq. or look at the back of the game case.
It's great that they release this classic game on PSN, BUT how are they gonna solve the problem that you need a specific codec frequency to progress through the game? Because this frequency was on the back of the case of the game. And only there.
Good to see. You know, I started playing this particular game on the 26th of Dec 1998. I got it for Christmas and I was in the Marines Corps at the time. So my wife though I would enjoy it. I became so hooked on it for some strange reason. I played it over and over.
I never in a millions years though it would evolve into the legendary game series that it has come over the last decade and I've been a gamer long before this game came along. I remember the very week the VR missions came out. I thought it was the next game in the series.
But soon found out it was just tactical training and was so bummed, lol. It's great to see the saga still going after all this time. I only wish Kojima would bring back some Big Boss from the old days. For MGS3 is by far my favorite game of the bunch.
