Konami PS2 Classics Get HD Makeovers

Konami revealed through their pre-E3 press conference yesterday plans to release three separate HD collections of some of their most revered games of modern times. Metal Gear, Silent Hill and Zone of the Enders are the franchises receiving the HD makeover and shall all be released between 2011 and 2012.

The earliest of which will be the Metal Gear Solid HD collection, due for release this November. Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 as well as PSP game Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker will be included. The original Metal Gear Solid is omitted from the collection for unknown reasons. All versions will feature redrawn art, upgraded audio and UI, trophies or achievements (depending on the system), and "transfarring."

Transfarring is a new piece of technology that will grant players the ability to transfer data between their PlayStation 3 and PSP systems, allowing one to swap seamlessly between playing at home or on the go.

Both Zone of the Enders and Silent Hill HD collections received significantly less attention than Metal Gear. Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders: Second Runner will be featured in its specific collection. Nothing was shown of either game, but it will also utilize the transfarring tech from the MGS collection and is slated for a 2012 release. Silent Hill 2 and 3 make up the Silent Hill collection and no details whatsoever were given about it other than the HD upgrade.
