Metal Gear and Final Fantasy HD collections?
Unconfirmed reports suggest that HD collections for both Metal Gear and Final Fantasy may be on the way to the PlayStation 3, along with other downloadable PlayStation 2 titles.


Final Fantasy VII – is it a shoe-in for HD?

So far the only HD collections - high resolution updates of old PlayStation 2 games - have been of Sony published titles, including God Of War, Sly Raccoon and Ico/Shadow Of The Colossus. However, Ubisoft is also planning a Prince Of Persia collection this Christmas and apparently that may only be the tip of the iceberg.

The rumours come from unnamed sources speaking to website TheGameHeadz.com, which we admit we've never heard of before. Despite the lack of provenance though it does all sound fairly believable.

According to unnamed Sony sources Activision, EA, Konami and Square Enix are all interested in releasing their own HD collections, although Metal Gear and Final Fantasy are the only two franchises named by the article.

Although it's not stated explicitly the implication is that these collection would include only PlayStation 2 titles, so for Final Fantasy that would be mainline entries X, X-2, and XII. We're assuming massively multiplayer online game XI wouldn't be included, but whether they'd try to update PS one era games Final Fantasy VII, VIII and IX we don't know.

The only Metal Gear games for the PlayStation 2 were Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3. Since it's entirely polygon-based (the PS one Final Fantasy games have lots of pre-rendered backdrops) it's easier to imagine that the original Metal Gear Solid might also be included, and perhaps also the earlier MSX and NES titles.

Unlike Final Fantasy though many of the Metal Gear Solid games have already been remade - the original for the GameCube and Metal Gear Solid 3 for Nintendo's new 3DS portable.

TheGameHeadz.com article also suggests that Sony may be considering releasing lesser PlayStation 2 games as downloads, much as it is already doing for PS one titles. Although that isn't predicted to happen until next autumn.
