Jack Tretton wasn't lying when he said we'd be seeing a lot more PS1 releases over in the West. Konami has announced that the original Metal Gear Solid will finally be heading to the PlayStation Store in America -- and pretty soon, too. You'll be able to replay Solid Snake's original adventure on June 18 and, similar to previous high-profile PS1 releases, will cost $9.99.

As for Europe? No word, yet. Normally, we'd say there's no chance of both the US and Europe getting the same PS1 titles around the same time, but we just heard that Final Fantasy VII is coming to Europe too, so you never know.
