According to siliconera. Konami plans on releasing the games in Metal Gear Solid HD Collection as separate PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade downloads too. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition will sneak onto PlayStation Network first. A digital version is slated for release on November 10 for 4,480 yen ($58) in Japan.
Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3 are slated for release two weeks later on November 23 for 3,480 yen ($45) each. You can also get both games in a package for 4,980 yen ($65). All three Metal Gear classics will also be available on Xbox Live Arcade sometime in 2012. Yes, the price for each game looks high in US dollars, but these are actually cheaper than the packaged versions in Japan. We’re not sure what price Konami will charge for downloads in North America and Europe.
Not that anybody cares. It's short and sweet, and pretty much tells you what's included and shit we already know. The Limited Edition as you all know, sold out on the first day. All 2,014 copies. So if you're still interested in buying, you can get the Collectors Edition which retails for $39.99 Release date for both is November 17th. Check the trailer out here:
Hideo Kojima, now officially a scholar at University of Southern California, presented students and press with a video about game development. A lot of it is just cool factoids like how the fucking mesmerizing Outer World (released as Another World in North America) was one of four games that heavily influenced him in game making. There's also the cute story of his son telling Mrs. Kojima that all he does is play with LEGOs all day. But then he told everyone to turn off their cameras to show off the FOX Engine. Only this picture (from a rehearsal nonetheless) has been released, and it was done so by Kojima via Twitter: It could just be a demo and nothing else. However, whereas the FOX Engine footage at E3 showcased a young black man and a dog, here we see the back of a man with Big Boss' slicked back hairstyle and jungle fatigues. His hair is brown, just like Big Boss' was before aging, and he seems to have some sort of band positioned in the same way Big Boss wears his eyepatch. Did the black person in the E3 demonstration grow up with vitiligo and a missing right eye? Is that a gun in his hand or is a shadow of a tree or whatever happy to see me? Is this a young Big Boss but it doesn't even matter because they just wanted to show off the FOX Engine? Does anyone care about Rising anymore?
UPDATE (OCT 8):Gamasutra reports that it was just a tech demo. From 2010, at that. That totally is Big Boss though:
"Kojima repeated at least twice that the 2010-dated tech demo in no way reflected Fox's current progress, and that the demo didn't represent an actual Metal Gear game in development."
"Fox Engine also utilizes built-in collision detection, which the clip demonstrated by spawning a Big Boss-like character and attempting to sink him into the ground. His knees bent as the mouse attempted to push him down. Within the video, an enemy PMC guard spawned near Big Boss, and Kojima explained that within a few clicks, a developer can craft the AI's paths of patrol."
"That interaction applies to weapons as well. The designer in the video spawned Big Boss a turret, then gave the enemy PMCs a Stryker APC vehicle. Four of the five guards instantly ran to the Stryker and used it for cover. The footage could be best described as resembling what Metal Gear Solid 4 would look like with Peace Walker's lush tropical stages. His ideal vision, he explained, is to allow designers to create stages without leaning on programmers."

Konami has a habit of making extravagant limited editions only to be sold on their Konamistyle websites. Considering Metal Gear is one of the company’s biggest franchises (it has its own section on their financial reports), we’re not too surprised to see Metal Gear Solid HD Edition and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition bundles. Just to be clear, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection includes Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker on one disc with bonus emulated MSX games. In Japan, Peace Walker is a separate title. That means there are two limited editions for fans to nab. The Metal Gear Solid HD Edition bundle includes the game, a "The Art of Metal Gear Solid: The Original Trilogy" book, a soundtrack CD with vocal songs, extra large Metal Gear Solid headphones, and mugs for Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3. Konami packed Peace Walker HD Edition with PlayArts figures of Snake and Miller, a soundtrack CD, and another mug. To be released in Japan on Nov 23, 2011 at a price of ¥9,980 Metal Gear Solid: the Original Trilogy – (contains 8 tracks see below) Track Listings:  The Best Is Yet To Come  Can not Say Goodbye To Yesterday  Snake Eater  Do not Be Afraid  Way to Fall / Starsailor  The Best Is Yet To Come (Original Karaoke)  Can not Say Good-Bye To Yesterday (Original Karaoke version)  Snake Eater (Original Karaoke version) Availability: This edition could only be obtain from the Konami Style web store in Japan
