Metal Gear Solid 3 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Despite the PS5 being Sony’s flagship format these days, its previous generation console the PS4 continues to receive robust software support from most major publishers. It’s perhaps not a gigantic surprise that Konami has committed to releasing its retro compilation Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 on the decade-old device then.

Our friends at Nintendo Life attended a preview event where the game was officially confirmed for Sony’s previous platform, corroborating ESRB leaks earlier in the year. It’s unclear whether the game will be available day-and-date, on 24th October, with the PS5 release – but representatives for the publisher said that the PS4 port has been commissioned due to fan demand.

Obviously, this is a compilation featuring PS1 and PS2 titles, so presentation and performance is unlikely to differ too much between Sony’s more contemporary consoles, and therefore the games should run smoothly on both the PS5 and PS4. Are you happy to see a last-gen port confirmed for this compilation? Let us know in the comments section below.
