Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Release Date Announced

The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 has gotten release dates for both North America and Europe, and the gap between them is a little surprising.

The collection will come out in the United States on November 8, while Europe will have to wait till February 3rd 2012.

The Collection includes Metal Gear Solids 2, 3 and Peace Walker, as well as Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 (the series’ origins). But what really makes this collection half-baked is the lack of the original Metal Gear Solid, which is an unbelievable exclusion.

However, if you buy the limited Ultimate HD Collection, you’ll also get a code to download the original MGS from PSN. However, the Ultimate HD Collection isn’t confirmed for North America, and is exclusively available for PS3 due to the inclusion of Metal Gear Solid 4.

There is still no news of the release date of the PS Vita version of the collection.
