Zone of the Enders HD Collection | oprainfall

The patch recently promised by Konami for the Zone of the Enders HD Collection is now live on PlayStation 3. It definitely seems to have fixed the issues that have been frustrating gamers since the game’s release last year.

While there were a host of complaints about the game from day one, the biggest issue was the extreme FPS drop which came with the game’s transition from PlayStation 2. When an amazing game with 60 FPS has an HD collection with choppy animation along with a host of bugs and glitches, it’s no surprise that fans were disappointed. Luckily though the patch does address many of the complaints, including the frame rate issues, so owners of the PlayStation 3 version can finally enjoy the Zone of the Enders HD Collection to its full extent.

The update is 594 MB, so if you’ve got the game on PS3, get that download going! Unfortunately for those who have it on Xbox 360, there is still no news about the patch coming your way. Konami only spoke of a PS3 update in the initial announcement, so the best we can do is cross our fingers and hope that the patch makes it to Xbox.

For those unfamiliar with Zone of the Enders, it is an action mecha series created by Hideo Kojima, who is best known as the director of the Metal Gear series.

    thanks for this 😀 i would never had known otherwise, i got up to the last boss and gave up (i never played the PS2 Version) but the FPS lag was crazy on the ps3

  • Vallen

    thanks for reminding me about the game lol. Its a good think I didnt get it yet haha. Might as well go pick it up now

  • Richard Robbs

    Vita? Please? I’d kill to be able to put these games in my pocket.

    I love that ZOE got an HD collection even though Kojima didn’t direct or design either game only a producer.. Yet Portable Ops won’t get one because “Oh I didn’t direct it so I don’t deem it needing one! Even though I spoke about how important it was before MGS4 came out and that MGS4 story couldn’t be finished until Portable Ops was finished!”

    Yeah. Call me a butthurt fanboy. :p

    I wonder if this patch fixes the missing graphical effects for the pS3 version too

      Portable Ops isn’t canon. There’s no need to waste time giving it the “HD” treatment.

  • JZ

    well, i guess now is a good time to go out and pick it up

  • Go Make 9 more MetalGear games

    I’d say better late than never, but no. No. This was absolutely unacceptable. Hideo Kojima and everyone involved in this disgraceful port should be ashamed of themselves.

    And then Kojima has the nerve to say that because the *terrible* port didn’t sell well, there’s no interest in the series? Screw you.
