Last month, GameStop revealed the price and release date of Metal Gear Solid: The HD Collection for both the PS3. Amazon finally joined the party about a week ago. Well, both GameStop and Amazon have changed the release date for this collection. And yes, it is for the better. In addition, Amazon has some weird errors in the product features for the 360 version.
First of all, the collection has been bumped up from the 29th of November to the 8th. That’s right; it seems Metal Gear will be shipping out the same day as Modern Warfare 3. As for Amazon’s listing error, well, check this out:
- Multiplayer, Any Way You Like It - Jimmie Johnson's Anything with an Engine supports up to eight-player online multiplayer action, including ranked and private races, and up to four players in split-screen multiplayer, battle for first place across the couch, around the globe or both simultaneously
- Outlandish Vehicles - Win cups in the Career Mode, they will unlock additional wild vehicles built in Jimmie's Workshop from unusual items such as shopping carts, recliners and cement mixers
- Rock 'Em, Sock 'Em Action - Each vehicle features its own unique set of weapon mods comprised of powerful pneumatic side-rams, front firing missiles and rear-deploying mines, knock out the competition by whatever means necessary
- Over-the-Top Personas - As they progress, players will assume a wide variety of outlandish personas, such as Hazzard Mower, who uses his souped-up lawnmower to cut down the competition and Megaton, a former military officer who barrels around the track on a high-speed bomb.
That same error is not on the PS3 version strangely enough. Too bad, those extra features certainly can’t hurt (can you detect the sarcasm?). Be sure to pre order Metal Gear Solid: The HD Collection ASAP. This series deserves your money.
