I purchased a PS2 collection of Metal Gear games but never played it. I'm wondering if this collection is different than that one, or if any of the games are the same.
I tried reading the summary pages but I'm a little confused by some of the wording of the titles so I can't tell for sure whether they are identical or not. It seems there are some different games in this one, but I'm not totally sure which ones are different.

Its the same games as the "Essentials Collection". MGS2 and MGS3. The difference is that these are In HD and playable on PS3 with Trophies and instead of Metal Gear Solid 1. You get Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, which is a PSP game, ported over to PS3. Also the MGS3 version included in this New one includes Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2. Its worth getting if you like the series.

Basically, it comes down to this:

Essentials Collection:
Metal Gear Solid (ps1)
Metal Gear Solid 2 (ps2)
Metal Gear solid 3 (ps2)

HD Collection:
Metal Gear Solid 2 (originally ps2)
Metal Gear Solid 3 (originally ps2)
Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker (originally psp)
Metal Gear (bonus feature of MGS3)
Metal Gear 2 (bonus feature of MGS3)

Also, in the HD collection, all the games are presented in widescreen high definition, and includes trophy support, whereas the Essentials Collection only has the games in Fullscreen Standard Definition.
