There is a MGS Peace Walker for PSP, the original version. Great game, I played it on UMD on my PSP.
The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for PS3 contains MGS Peace Walker HD. This is a PS3-only game.
The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for Vita contains only MGS2 and MGS3. It does not have MGS Peace Walker. There is no MGS Peace Walker for Vita.
(But there really should be.)

Agreed! The HD version is $20 and the PSP version is $30...**bleep**? I was able to download the PSP version to my Vita and transfer my saved game from the PSP to the Vita, but I have 56 hours into it from when it was on the PSP and I'm at the point where I need help for the higher level bosses and battles. I'd like to get the HD version with trophy support so 1) it would look nice and 2) get some more trophies.
I think they're holding off with an HD PW Vita version because the PSP is still big in Japan. But even that doesn't make sense to me. If they were to just swap the prices and make it available for the Vita I'd buy it.

At this point I don't expect a PW port to Vita.
I expect a new Peace Walker-style game for PS3 and Vita from them, but I don't know what to think now that MGS Ground Zeroes is coming to PS3 (and I assume Xbox 360) and there is that new Phantom Pain game which is obviously another Metal Gear game. Phantom Pain could be a game on both PS3 and Vita, or maybe a Vita exclusive, we'll have to see. The Podcast Beyond guys at IGN theorized that recently after the trailer was released.
I think I will end up buying the PS3 version of the MGS HD Collection and play only Peace Walker from that. I will wait for a sale and work on my gigantic backlog of PS3 (and a smaller Vita backlog) games in the meantime, not to mention my PS Plus backlog. Adhoc only multiplayer is the one thing that keeps the PSP version from being so close to perfect in my opinion.

Yeah, I have both versions of the MGS HD collection (PS3 and Xbox 360). One thing I FINALLY noticed last night is that the PS3 version of Peace Walker allows you to transfar to the PSP. So you can play on the PS3 then transfar it to your PSP, play, then transfar back in to the PS3. You can then get trophies for Peace Walker HD even though you didn't play it directly on the PS3.
So after realizing this, I assume this is why they didn't come out with a version on the Vita. I mean, it makes sense, but if you were Sony or Konami, wouldn't you want to promote the PS Vita by having both copies?
I dunno, I'm just happy that I can get trophies for Peace Walker without actually sitting down at my PS3. For some reason I've really been into playing handhelds (Vita and 3DS XL). I just wish there were more cool NEW games for the Vita. I CANNOT wait for Killzone, Soul Sacrifice, and Warriors Lair. Of course it would be nice to get a Monster Hunter game for the Vita. There are rumors that Monster Hunter 4 may be released on the Vita as well as the 3DS...(fingers crossed)!
