Rumor: Metal Gear Solid 1 coming to XBL Arcade

I guess it’s only fitting that this rumor surfaces mere days before MGS4’s release. According to Ripten’s sources, the seminal MGS game is set to hit Xbox Live Arcade.

They say this due to a report coming in from a reliable individual noticing the game on a "certain pre-release network." They didn’t say much more except that there are some problems in the conversion process.

I would assume so–the original MGS’ filesize was over 1GB. It must be quite a painful process to shrink the game in order to meet XBLA’s current file limit of 150MB.

Remember this story is a rumor right now. Ripten isn’t exactly known for being the most reliable site but let’s keep our fingers crossed anyway. I know I’d want to see this game hit XBLA. I haven’t played a single MGS game and what better way to start than with than an HD port of the original?
