Microsoft has unveiled that the HD versions of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater are now backwards compatible on the Xbox One.
In a tweet sent out by Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, Director of Programming for Xbox Live, confirmed Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (which also includes Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2) are now backwards compatible. Those who have a physical copy can play it like a normal game while those who have a digital copy will have to download it to the Xbox One hard drive.

This now males every title in the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection playable on the Xbox One as Peace Walker was made backwards compatible back in March. The announcement is welcoming news for Xbox gamers who are fans of the series since Konami has no plans of re-releasing any Metal Gear titles on the Xbox One.
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater were both originally released for the PlayStation 2 before being remastered for the Seventh Generation consoles. Both titles have been praised by critics while Snake Eater has been hailed for having one of the best stories in gaming.
