The HD Collection includes revamped versions of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, complete with dual-analog-stick controls, 1080p graphics, smoother frame rates, a redesigned user interface, rumble support and much more.

We caught up with Kojima last week at an appearance in Mexico City and he was eager to speak with readers.

PlayStation.Blog: Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker was designed for PSP – a portable device. What changes did Kojima Productions make to the upcoming PS3 version so it could be enjoyed on a high-definition home console?

Hideo Kojima, Director, Kojima Productions: The PSP obviously has fewer buttons than the PS3 controller, and it had some limitations when it comes to control. Using the DualShock 3, movement of many things improved... as did, of course, (the addition of) rumble support.

On the PSP, it was also hard to tell...

229w ago - Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker was released this past June for PSP, however, despite Kojima Productions previously ruling out a PS3 port Hideo Kojima hinted at just that in a recent interview with French video game news site [Register or Login to view links].

Conducted at Japan Expo, Hideo Kojima briefly commented on the possibility of porting Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker from the PSP to the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: "I can not say I'll do a direct conversion of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker on Playstation 3.

However, this game was a challenge in terms of its development on the PSP for me and I probably will preserve the base of it. And if I had to port it to another console, I would add even more depth to the story."

241w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a new Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker PSP Field Guide trailer video today on the PlayStation Blog.

To quote: Since completing Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots a whopping three times – once for each difficulty setting! – I've been positively fiending for a new Metal Gear fix.

Luckily, series mastermind [Register or Login to view links] has been busy cooking up a new chapter exclusively for the PSP, and this time, it's a story-centric adventure that picks up where Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater left off. And I got to play it!

Check out the new trailer for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker below, and read on for more details and new screens.

That's right, the Bearded One himself – Naked Snake, aka Solid Snake's pops – returns to the lead role in Peace Walker. Set in 1974's Central America, in a war-weary time at the tail end of the Vietnam Conflict, Peace Walker will further explore the philosophical and political ramifications of war as commerce, as well as its longterm deleterious effects on society, the economy, and ourselves.





But don't worry. You'll still be able to blow stuff up real good, too.
 

Kojima Productions Hints at MGS: Peace Walker PSP Surprise

251w ago - A recent [Register or Login to view links] on the Kojima Productions blog drops hints the company might be getting ready to reveal a long-awaited Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker PSP surprise.

In the post, PR manager Jiro Oishi says the following after talking about touring Japan to show off the co-op play in Peace Walker, to quote:

"However, in truth, there's another ultimate charm outside of co-op play hidden in PW."

The original birth of this news came from an earlier [Register or Login to view links] by Hideo Kojima himself, so it is likely that Oishi and Kojima are both speaking about the same unannounced feature.

To date, there hasn't been any such announcement for the game that would make people rush out to buy a PSP, so only time will tell what surprise Peace Walker may hold for fans.
