Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 - PS5
About this deal
They still do as the unique direction of Hideo Kojima is clear to see, but it's smeared somewhat by PS1 pixels and dated PS3 visuals.
The Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection bundles together three of the greatest games ever made, but does so in a convoluted manner.It's a bizarre situation on Series X as well, given the Master Collection produces a worse image than what we already had in the Xbox 360 HD Collection, running in back-compat on Series X. The original 1998 Metal Gear Solid plays via emulation in the Master Collection release, with the same 240p resolution and 30fps cap. Personally, I find these fixes more important in faithfully preserving the games on modern platforms than anything else, and shows the opposite of a cash grab.
Honestly I'm just really happy to have a really good selection of MGS games all in one place available on the latest console.Little weird about MG and the other pre mgs titles, but emulation being all that it is, understandable. Complaining about how these games are packaged would be similar to complaining about a collection coming with multiple discs for each game instead of one disc containing multiple games. Given the power Konami has access to in the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and top-of-the-range PCs, this is somewhat of a disappointment.
