Metal Gear Solid: Legacy Collection 'too big' for Xbox 360 r

I must be the only person that can't stand Metal Gear games :/

Personally find them boring to play and not good enough visually too.

Oh well, maybe the next version might change that!

I don't think they are crap but aside from the PSOne MGS and Snake Eater I didn't find the others as epic as I would have expected, anywhere near in fact...

Yesterday I downloaded Hitman Absolution, 17GB on PS3, I dread the day the 360 gets anything that big.

You're not alone.

Give Rising a try though, thought it was excellent.

ha,what a load of s**t

There are many ways to get around it,i mean they could even do what they did to the HD collection in Japan and split them

you could even take away MGS2,3 and PW for the 360 release as they are available in the HD collection,I'd be fine with that as i already have them

and just release MGS4 and 1 as a 3 or 4 disc job(L.A Noire and Lost Odyssey were both 4 discs)

just excuses to not tell us the real reason(they can't be arsed)


@Dodo-not really sure what you mean,people have large HDDs for the 360,GoD has L.A. Noire and other large games....and to be honest my internet is faster at downloading on my 360 than it is on my PS3(which also has to install)

Also to note,17 gig on the PS3 does not mean the same game will be 17gig on the 360,lots of compressing goes on

That's what I never understood. Absolution is on xbox so how the hell does the ps download get that big? Did they hid a couple of films in there, maybe a porn version of hitman dubbed into swedish? How is that larger than something like skyrim or crysis etc?
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

I mean I'm yet to download or install anything that big on 360 yet and I'm glad because normally my download speeds aren't that hot so the smaller the better for me.

I've only had my 360 for a year though so maybe it's just I've not come across the bigger games yet.

Metal Gear Solid 4 was released on a dual-layer Blu-ray disc clocking in at roughly 47GB, a XBOX360 disc is 9GB. It's basic math, isn't it?

Frankly, that doesn't sound much like a Legacy Collection to me. What if they just make it Metal Gear 1 and 2 and MGS4 to save even more space on Microsoft's little 9GB DVD discs.

Would add that some of that space was used for MGO, which is now gone. Even still, it takes up a fair amount of space. I don't see the issue tbh, who the hell would want to play it over 7 discs? Who's to say it's even possible to split the game up over that many discs? To bring it into the realms of "fanboys", I'm sure most complainers just want it on there to say "lol at ps3 owners". Least the guys being somewhat honest about the situation.

On another note, what of MGS1 in 360?

It's not as simple as that,for example large parts of the game code were duplicated on the blu-ray to cope with slow read times, if you've got lots of space why not use it and that's exactly what they did, no need to compress if you don't need to.

fair point but did you read the article?

He said it wouldn't be a legacy collection with a game missing, so why would they then take out 3 and release it as a legacy collection? :?
