Announced just last week, Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection, which contains every Metal Gear Solid game that has seen a console release, has been confirmed as exclusive to the PlayStation 3. Why is the Xbox 360, which received both the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, not privy to the latest Snake-packed box set? Is it because Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 4 were never released on Microsoft’s console in any form?
According to Kojima, it’s actually all about storage space. Even the PlayStation 3, with its 50+ GB Blu-ray discs will be splitting the Legacy Collection across two pieces of optical media. If it were on the Xbox 360, he said, it would have spanned half a dozen DVDs.
Despite his transparency on the collection thus far, Kojima still has yet to place the game any more precisely than “June,” though Amazon Japan has it slated for June 11. A Tuesday, it would make sense as a North American release date as well.
