    This game is OP

  • So since it’s the PSP version I’m assuming it will still be running at 20fps, and low res to boot?

    • benhofb

      Naturally. They woudn’t go through fancy procedures of upscaling and re-rendering just for a Vita release. Besides, it doesn’t look all that bad on the Vita’s screen. Not to mention the dual sticks make it feel like you’re playing MGS3.

  • It’s also going down in price from 30 to 20 dollars.

  • JoJo_649

    not my favorite of the saga, hopefully portable ops is released on the PSN too.

    • TheExile285

      It’s on the PSN, it just doesnt work on Vita in NA. Can’t PS3 transfer or anything. EU has access to it though >_>

    Bought it December (for $30) and transferred it to my Vita with PS3. With every cent. It’s a brilliant game and I reccomend it to anyone even slightly interested

  • Perfect timing. I just recently got into MGS (hey better late than never, right?). I’m still not ready for Peace Walker, but it’s great to know its ready for me haha.

    • benhofb

      Well… once you have played MGS3, you’re pretty much good to go (if you skip portable ops).

      • Yeah, I got the Vita version of MG2/3. Making some good progress. I don’t think I’ll be playing Portable Ops so I’ll be playing PW or MGS4 after 3 (so far people have told me to go with 4 first.)

    • When you’re done with that, give the Mass Effect series a look. XD

      • I’ll give it a shot, thanks!!

  • Solomon_Kano

    With the price drop it’s packing, looks like I’ll be getting it. I love this game, but I’ve yet to beat PW HD because of that damn torture scene. It’s f–king… well, torture!

  • A little disappointing that they can’t just release the HD version for Vita and have the best of both worlds.

  • It would be nice if PSN also gets the Ac!d series, but I won’t hold my breath.

  • Lester Paredes

    It’s about friggin’ time1 Now, where’s Portable Ops? I’d love to have almost the entirety of the MGS series on the go with me…
    In an entirely unrelated and completely delusional wish: Please port MGS4 to vita! That will complete my collection! *sigh* It’ll never happen.
