Break This Man's Heart, Buy His Metal Gear Solid Collection

I always feel a little sad when I see super impressive video game collections for sale on e-bay. Sure, everyone has good reasons for selling -- they might not have the space anymore, they might need cash, they might simply just not care about their collections anymore. But still, it represents the end of something. Anthony Harrap's Metal Gear Solid Collection is pretty impressive -- it features just about everything you could possibly imagine...

According to the auction, the collection includes...

Metal Gear Solid PS1 PAL Metal Gear Solid PS1 PAL but with the super rare Silent Hill Demo Metal Gear Solid PS1 NTSC Metal Gear Solid Special Missions PS1 PAL Metal Gear Solid Intergral NTSCJ

Last but not least is that Big Silver Box you can see in the photos. That is an Original (Japanese) Metal Gear Solid Premium Package which was released in very small numbers waaaaay back in 1998! The pack includes: Metal Gear Solid PS1 NTSCJ, with a demo for Gensosuikoden II (Suikoden 2). Metal Gear Music Collection CD Big Art Book Fox Hound Dog Tags Metal Gear Solid Card Collection

So yeah, a fair amount of stuff. Maybe it's just something I'm interested in as a fan of the series, but I think it's a pretty cool collection. It's currently looking for a starting bid of $500. Here's hoping Anthony gets a decent price for it all.

    I have one of those Metal Gear Solid 1 boxes.. Don't know where it is though, shame on me.

      Probably hiding in a cardboard box somewhere.

    $500 starting bid? That's crazy good value! Even just for all the games, but there's all the soundtracks and books and extras too. Damn, if only I had a spare few hundred just lying around...

      I'm sure you could find the money....

    The metal gear saga vol1 was given to me when you pre-ordered MGS4, if my memory serves me correctly. You could not buy it at all. Need to run home and find out. And not many copies were even handed out either.

      I'm pretty sure it was Metal Gear Saga Vol 2 that you got when you pre-ordered MGS4. Still got mine sitting in my collection. :-)

    No msx.

      Yeah, I never could find the msx stuff or the original nes game.

    Im kinda glad i dont collect stuff, seems exausting and expensive just to sell it one day

    The MGS with the Silent Hill demo is rare? Who concurs?

    Metal gear saga vol 1 came with metal gear solid 3 subsistence
