To quote: Metal Gear, Zone of the Enders Return With HD Collections Konami announced today that two of its most popular franchises, Metal Gear Solid and Zone of the Enders, will be getting HD compilation re-releases on the PlayStation 3 and, for the first time, will also see action on the Xbox 360.
The Metal Gear pack, due in November, will include Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3 and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. These games will now feature HD graphics, new art, remastered audio and achievements.
The Zone of the Enders collection, meanwhile, includes Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders 2 (and will boast the same improved/added features as the MGS pack). It'll be out in 2012.
Both packs will also boast a similar feature to the recently-unveiled PSP Remaster series, which Konami is calling "Transfarring". This will allow users to, when playing a game like Peace Walker that will be available on both handheld and console, transfer their saves between the two.
The company also unveiled plans for a Silent Hill HD collection....

248w ago - The movie experts over at the Criterion Collection, known for their Laserdiscs and DVDs of unparalleled production values, uses the PlayStation 3 as their reference Blu-ray player.
Considering their other equipment, which includes "a Denon AVR-3808CI receiver, an Axiom Epic 80/500 speaker system, an Anchor Bay DVDO VP50 Pro video processor with HD SDI option," this is quite an honor for the PS3.
No one is actually surprised by this though, even as just a plain-ol' Blu-ray player, the PS3 has been rated quite highly. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the PS3 allows for firmware upgrades for any functionality tweaks. Oh yeah, and games!
This October, Criterion will also begin releasing movies on the Blu-ray format, and we are simply quivering with anticipation.
