Three new games from Konami have appeared on the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee website, revealing that Metal GearMetal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2: Subsistence may be coming to PC. All three of these games are already available on PC (except Metal Gear, which was an MS-DOS game. Sadly, none of these titles are currently available digitally. Right now, it looks like Konami plans to address this shortcoming, allowing PC gamers to play these titles on modern systems while giving themselves an opportunity to profit from these classic games. 

These games are unlikely to be full-on HD remasters. These games are expected to be tweaked versions of each game's original PC versions, allowing them to run on modern Windows PCs with high resolutions and modern gamepads. That said, Metal Gear fans would no doubt welcome digital releases of these games. Taiwan's new Metal Gear ratings do not guarantee future PC releases for these games, but ratings like this do not appear from nowhere. Konami are, at a minimum, considering PC re-releases of these Metal Gear/Metal Gear Solid titles. Hopefully, we will have more concrete information about these ports soon. 
 
Having these games available for PC is good for the company's revenue in my opinion. 

Specs: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X,  Corsair MP600 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero,  Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2070 FTW 3

    If these end up like all the current batch of "Remasters' we have had released- it's going to be brutally bad.
     
    If they would actually remaster all the textures, then they would be cool.....

    If they could do a proper remake that would be awesome.
     
    But granted with the way they split with Kojima, most likely not happening.

    Current Build:
    CPU: Intel i7-8770k @ stock speeds
    Motherboard: ASUS PRIME z370-A
    Memory: 16 GB Corsair Vengence
    GPU: GTX 970 FTW
    Power Supply: EVGA Supernova 750G2

    I agree, as long as they are properly optimized for PC, this will be good.

    So disappointing these are unlikely to be full-on HD remasters. I'd love to see them get the Fox Engine treatment.

    Remember the demo CD’s that came in the mags for this game! Man I played that one level for ever till I finally got the game.

    So much time remastering games rather than make new ones..

    Unfortunately, they look a little rough on modern hardware (more so the first game). I would go into more detail, but I will let the screenshots speak for themselves:


    In my opinion, this probably isn’t the best way to experience these classic titles

    That's great, hope they're good ports. I was just talking with my friend about how they should remake the whole series for PC, and this is a good start.

    What if I said that one's entire life had been decided by fate? That every single one of your actions, from the minute to the monumental, stemmed not from your own choices, but had already been decided upon? That life being a journey of limitless possibilities was but an illusion, and no matter how fiercely man struggled, he stood at the mercy of a long-established path? The wealthy shall know their riches. The needy shall starve on the streets. The wicked shall be wicked, the righteous just. The beautiful, the hideous, the strong, the frail, the fortunate, the miserable... and finally, the victors and the defeated. What if I said that all such things had been carved into stone eons ago, allowing for no divergence? If so, sinners have nothing to answer for, nor do saints have any true virtue to their name. What if I said that not a single action is carried out of one's own volition, but had been decided long ago? That we are merely adrift in the current of time? Tell me, would yo

    I love these games. I spent literal days just playing the MGS1 demo from playstation magazine. I got so good at that first part of the game it was crazy. Hard to believe Kojima moved on. I wonder what he will do next. I've been playing Death Stranding and actually I really like it.

    I'd be all over a remaster but we know that's not going to happen.

    I'd love to play MGS1 again, it still stands out to me as one of the best in the series in my opinion. I wasn't very fond of MGS2 but I know that game has it's cult following, but I haven't played it in forever. Wonder if my opinion will change...
