The first post in this thread speaks about Metal Gear 2, not Metal Gear(1).

There is no any problem to run Metal Gear 2 on a non-Japanese MSX2 machine, this problem happens only with the Japanese rom of Metal Gear(1), but there's an European official rom for this game.

The MSX system is a computer, NOT a console.

No problem to play Metal Gear 2 on any MSX2, but you've got to know that everything will be in japanese if you play with the original cartridge (no problem if you're fluent in japanese though). A fan translation in english has been made, but in order to play with it, you'll need some specific hardware that will allow the modified ROM to be loaded.
