So this game was removed by konami from GOG and all digital stores "temporarily" due to Licensing issue. This was in November. Its now June, its been like 7 months now. I think this game should be reuploaded onto myabandonware. Jesus thanks Konami it got uploaded to GOG for like 1 year before being taken down again. Nice work Konami realll nice.

Hey, since this game isn't listed on GoG anymore, can it be put back on here?

GOG pulled this one. Should be reuploaded here, as it has been some years now.

As of today, every version of Metal Gear Solid 2 (and 3) got pulled from all digital stores due to copyright issues. I don't know if it counts as abandonware now.

Bro what kind of logic is this? why are you telling me that i should buy the game on Ps3 (a console released 14 years ago) that i don't have when i'm looking for the PC version that's an actual abandonware???

It is available on the PS Store, but it's for the PSVita and PS3, both of which sony, from what I understand, no longer officially supports. But this is abandonware on PC, as you cannot buy this on PC. -- you also cannot buy this on PS4/Xbox etc etc.

What kind of an idea was to remove the file from a PC game so people buy the PS3 version?!

The game is not available on GoG.com. Not sure where you got that information from. In the US here and I cannot find it on GoG. Search produces no results.
