I got my PS3 last December, one of the first games I played was MGS4. After doing research on the past games (so I would understand the story) I played and beat it. I thought it was awesome.

I know the Metal Gear Solid Collection comes out in fall, but is there any other game I could download off PSN, or anything, to tide me over until then. To my knowledge there isn't.

Also worth noting I have no PSP, no PS2.

Thanks guys.

Best bet...

PSN store has MGS1 for the PS1. $10. Well worth it, check it out.

Then get the MGS HD collection this fall. That should cover ya!
I'm pretty sure that Hideo confirmed that you don't argue MGS semantics with Onslaught. - Serazee -

You are likely to be in for an awesome ride.

MGS4 was by far the worst in the series IMO. I almost wish I never played them, so I could experience them for the first time again.

MGS 1-3 were infinitely better than MGS 4 which was basically just one long, cheesy cutscene disguised as a game.

a better idea is to wait until the HD collection comes out, there is a slight possibility they could include a code to download MGS1 off the store for free.

so you'd basically be getting four games for $50.

and if they include Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 with Subsistance and all the extras, that's six games for $50.

It was $9.99 last I checked in the store.
I still have a PS1 copy. It would be nice if the collection came with a download code so I could have it on my PSP.

Get MGS1 off the PS Store. Play it. Wait till HD collection comes out (probably November) play 2 and 3. Play 4 again. Then Play Peace Walker from the collection.
