The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is out today on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and with it comes the four player co-op version of Metal Gear Solid: Peacewalker HD. The $50 package features two other Metal Gear Solid games as well - Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. The good news is, if you are only looking for the co-op enabled MGS: Peacewalker HD, Konami plans on releasing it as a standalone downloadable title.
Starting next week in Japan, those titles will be available to download via PSN, but the separate downloads won't be coming to Xbox Live and PSN until 2012 in North America and Europe. There's no word on pricing yet on the individual titles, but the Japanese pricing has it listed at $45.
Speaking of Japan, Konami Japan has just posted 9 minutes of footage from Peacewalker HD on their YouTube channel, here's what you're missing if you decide to wait for the downloadable releases.
