While the future of the Saga Metal Gear Solid is very dark since 2015 after the departure of Video Kolyma and the ineffectiveness of INAMI, the problems are hosted on the Saga de Snake and company. So much that two of their most important games in the saga are going to disappear from digital stores.
INAMI has announced the metal retirement Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater will stop all digital stores from today. The Japanese firm speaks, yes, of a temporary withdrawal, because they are currently working on the renewal of the licenses of historical archival material used in both games.
The list of retired games, published by INAMI, is as follows:
PlayStation 3 Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty HD Edition
PlayStation 3 METAL GEAR SOLID 3 SNAKE EATER HD EDITION
PlayStation 3 METAL GEAR SOLID HD EDITION
PlayStation Vita Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty HD Edition
PlayStation VITA METAL GEAR SOLID 3 SNAKE EATER HD EDITION
PlayStation Vita Metal Gear Solid HD Collection

Nintendo 3DS Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D
Gog.com Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance

Although it will apparently be a temporary decision, the withdrawal of these two games in the different platforms makes you rethink the debate of belonging before digital products, which can be revoked from our reach at any time. The impossibility of being able to have a purchased service, or to buy it at any time, is something that does not enthuse a good part of the community. And that has been discussed on several occasions; Like when Sony raised the closure of the digital stores of PS3 and PS Vita.
