And this is coming to PSN... when? :-|
If there is no announcement at E3 don't expect it to ever come out. My view is that Konami probably wants to force the full package on people to get the most they can from it.
Correct me if I am wrong but it was officially announced wasn't it? You can't announce stuff then just not do it.
I wish I knew 100% the backend of PSN because I really want to know why it's so hard to upload games onto it. Or is it all just marketing and business BS.
Ask EA of officially announcing stuff and then not pulling through (BF3 -> BF1943 debacle)...
EDIT: From what I read... Sony's backend itself isn't the problem. It's their idiotic segmentation of the markets. If they want to release something in Europe, they have to have all translations in working order and often times there's regional differences (especially in Germany) etc. Microsoft is (from what I read) much more lenient here.
Kept you waiting
Yeah and they got sued and had to honour it.
As far as I know, I believe at least MGS2 and MGS3 have been available on JPN PSN for a while already.

I've bought it on PSN for VITA, will I get the PS3 PSN version for free?
If the article is supposed to answer my question, it doesn't. Unless I am being a dumbass. They say individually available (so MGS2 only or MGS3 only) and stuff but nothing about if you can download PS3 version if you already have PSN VITA version (PSN VITA version was out here for few weeks now).
In-game also has 'transfarring' but I don't think that automatically means you get the other version for free.
You gotta pony up the extra cash for the other version, kind of sucks.
The release of these are way too scattered! For some reason thought PW was out on PSN EU, went to grab it, but nope. And I see now it's only been recently released on US PSN with no word for EU PSN....*gets dizzy*
Stupid. I hope it comes at some stage soon[ish] to EU.
I got the other two on VITA (which sucks that they don't give me the PS3 versions...), I just need mah PW.
I read there's a tentative date of February 2013 for the European versions, so I'm going to screw that and get the US ones one of these days.
I still haven't been able to watch the Ground Zeroes trailer, but I will tomorrow! Can't wait!!!
