Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is a 2001 stealth action adventure game created for the PS2. The game has since received multiple re-releases, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance in 2002/3 and the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection in 2011.
Differences from Substance
After Solidus first comes out of hiding in Arsenal Gear's Rectum (no really), he refers to Raiden by his Patriot-bestowed codename rather than the name he gave him in Liberia, "Jack". Substance and all other subsequent ports would use "Jack" instead.
B-roll of the NYSE
A slightly extended version of the final game's codec dialogue between Raiden and Ames, discussing the effects of an EMP unleashed by the Sons of Liberty. Aside from the real-life footage, Raiden notes that "Black Monday would look like a picnic in comparison." It is unclear if this was cut due to 9/11. The cutscene is also present albeit still unused in Substance and the HD Collection.
Lady Liberty's Green Card
This FMV was originally part of MGS2, but was likely cut due to 9/11 and the fear of offending those shaken by the then recent disaster. This clip would have been a tongue-in-cheek reference to Lady Liberty being a gift from the French.
Karen Hojo News Report
This FMV would have also been part of the original ending, revealing that the Statue of Liberty was displaced by Arsenal Gear and now rests on Ellis Island. The news reporter, Karen Hojo, is a reference to a character in Policenauts, much like Meryl Silverburgh was in MGS1.
