Default Metal Gear Solid coming to the PSN June 18

Metal Gear Solid will be released on the US Playstation store on June 18. No word for Europe yet but I really hope they will pull a FF7 and release them simultaneously. I never owned a PSOne so I'm really looking forward to get my hands on this and play it through, probably on the PSP if the controls work well.

Important questions about this release spoiler'd for those of you who never played MGS1, even though it's almost on the level of not knowing that the princess is in another castle:

Spoiler
When you first try and communicate with Meyrill, you're told to look on the back of the game's case for the Codec frequency to use. How are they gonna handle that one (and I know, you can just use the Internet, but still)? Furthermore, if you're playing on the PSP, are they going to allow you to "change controller ports" for the Psycho Mantis fight?

I'm sure they'll address these issues before they release it.

It would be pretty funny if Konami messed up that badly and forgot about that fight though lol

You can do it, it just takes about 10 times as long and a lot of luck

Can you just manually reassign the controller #? Don't know if this works with just one controller though.

On the PS3, yes. Just hit the PS button and choose the appropriate menu. My concern is if this is possible on the PSP, which is the real reason I want to buy these PSOne classics: Portability
