Rumour: HD re-releases for Metal Gear and Final Fantasy

1 min read

Because Geoff unofficially dubbed me Lazygamer’s “HD Re-release guy”, I now feel uncontrollably compelled to scour the internet looking for traces of information on possible titles. And what do you know, I found this. It isn’t that unexpected really seeing as how the Final Fantasy and Metal Gear series are practically synonymous with the PlayStation brand. Well, they were at least.

TheGameHeadz.com has posted an article based off a discussion they had with “one of Sony’s own” about backwards compatibility. The article sheds some light onto the business decisions behind the removal of backwards compatibility from earlier PlayStation 3 models. But hidden amongst the explanations are some blatant outings of future HD re-releases ala the God of War Collection.

According to the mystery Sony source, after the God of War Collection sold 2 million copies, other publishers jumped onboard the HD re-release gravy train. Among those publishers are EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Konami and Square Enix.

There’s also this little quote: “The industry’s best developers are ReMastering their best games. Prince of Persia, Shadow of Colossus, and ICO are just the beginning. When fans see what Konami’s doing to the Metal Gear series, and what Square’s doing with Final Fantasy, they’re going to be very happy.”

Big Rubber Rumour Stampâ„¢ the hell out of this seeing as how there is no actual name attributed to this quote, and we have nothing but TheGameHeadz.com’s word that this was a legitimate interview.

  1. I hope its true. I also hope that they add the third person 3D camera that they added to MGS3: Subsitence. MGS3 plays much better that way than with the original isometric camera angle. I wonder if this means they will use the gamecube version Twin Snakes when they port across MGS instead of the PS1 version.

    The gamecube version Twin Snakes was a pretty decent port of the old PS1 version. 😀 :wub: Love that game!

    There have been rumours (or has it just been the popular fan request) of an FF7 HD remake, i wonder if this is what Squeenix are up to.

    What the hell happened to that FFX-2 header image? Please tell me it didn’t look that bad!

    I think you can safely say it’s probably the PS2 version up there.
