    Topic says it all really.
    I was thinking of getting either Metal Gear Solid HD Collection that's £19.99 or 2400msp or just the Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker HD for £11.49 or 1320msp.

    Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker is a full game not Arcade but this hasn't been released on disc yet so you can only get it legit retail from Games Market Place and peace walker was on put up 24 August 2012.
    So does anyone know why this has now been removed?, if you go to games A-Z and go to M and look for it when you click on it all you can do it rate it with stars.

    I really wanted to get this and am quite gutted that I missed out, I've searched all over for a answer even went to call Microsoft them self but I was on hold for like 30 mins so I gave up.
    Surely someone know's why so please let me know thank you, DellBoy. :dash2:

    The HD port of Peace Walker, originally released on PSP, was previously available for $19.99 but has been pulled from the service.

    Konami hasn't provided an official statement on the circumstances, though players have previously reported the game suffers from random freezing and console lock ups, so that's one possible reason for its disappearance.

    Peace Walker is still listed on the Xbox.com database, suggesting its removal may be temporary.

    We've sent Konami an e-mail and will update you with more information soon.

    You can buy it on disk too. It comes bundled with the Metal Gead HD collection, which is 2 disks, first have Metal Gear 2 and Metal Gear 3 and the second disc has the Metal Gear Peace Walker.

    I'm not sure, but I think I've saw a game dissapear from the marketplace in the past and come back again later. Maybe they are trying to solve the issues someone said about freezing and locking up.

    Edit: Just saw that I won an award. 100 posts, lol. thanks XPG staff. is there a 200 posts award? I think i'm eligible to that already >.<

    Didn't notice this title was pulled off

    Heard Konami screwed up the silent hill compilation port on Xbox360 (& PS3 but they offered a fix for PS3 port),
    and then offer exchange of crappy old games.

    For a moment I was losing faith in Konami ... so didn't really bother to check out MGS (even I like MGS 1 very very much)
    maybe wait till I have heard enough of positive feedback
