Metal Gear Online with Catapult Action


Just a friendly reminder that the Metal Gear Online Beta can be downloaded this Thursday. But you can’t start playing until April 21st , and will run until May 5th. I actually managed to get another Beta Key which I’ll give away again. Just leave a comment ;) I’ll e-mail the winner the Beta Key tomorrow morning. Or you can take your chances and enter to win here!

After you download and install the MGO Beta you’ll need to register for a Konami ID . You’ll be taken to id.konami.net when you boot up the Beta. You can get a head start and register now if you want.

In the Beta you have one “character slot” which you can customize to your liking. Your character can have 4 skills and here are a few you can choose from:

Close Quarter Combat (CQC), knife fighting, quickness, alertness, heavy weaponry mastery, demolition, and sniper mastery are just some of the skills you can specialize in.

Again they’ll be two maps in the Beta. Blood Bath & Groznyj Grad but in the full version it’s five maps to start out.

Yay, they kept the Man Cannon, lol. It’s going to be funny to see a guy flying across the level at random during a heated gun battle. Check out the link below for full details of MGO.

ALERT! “Metal Gear Mondays” Begin NOW on the PlayStation.Blog with Metal Gear Online Beta Details!

    I was registering for a Konami Code so I could play the beta of MGSO come april 17th low and behold look what I found.

    “By agreeing to the “Terms and Conditions for Use of KONAMI ID Online Payment”, you will be able to purchase online game monthly tickets, etc. with your credit card”

    This was right off their registration page AFTER I completed the registration. If we have to pay to play the MGSO game then you can kiss that game goodbye.

    I WILL NOT PAY TO PLAY ANY GAME ONLINE on the PS3.

    Wow, good eye. Hope it’s not a paid service that would suck!

    Yeah, I can understand paying for more maps, but the word MONTHLY is what really stands out to me. That and the facts that they use the phrase ONLINE GAME TICKETS.

    Sounds like a pay to play service if you ask me.

    Yeah seems that you can openly download it from the Euro PS Stores from April 17th – 21st.

    Ooo. I’d like that beta code, plz. :-)

    An open download in the UK? Wow – really looking forward to this, especially the inclusion of the man cannon. Can’t wait.

    Hi Tosh! I would appreciate the Beta Key for my girlfriend. She was MGS4 reserved at the store, but they ran out of Saga DVDs, and when we tried to go to the Konami US website, the keys had already run out! *crosses fingers* Thanks Tosh!!

    Would love the beta key!

  12. #12 by Riggins44 on April 15th, 2008

    The man cannon is the gayest thing I have ever seen. How bought that beta key??

  13. #13 by Emrah on April 15th, 2008

    Konami’s behaviour for online play has been ridiculous. Case in point: I bought pc version of PES2005 cheap when PES2006 was just out. Two months later, they removed the online portion of PES2005, probably less than two years after the game was out. And the game was served peer-to-peer, with the konami servers just acting out like a meeting place, probably they had much less load than an average IRC server.

    Tosh you can give me your extra code so I can check and see if this will indeed be pay to play eventually. also I want to see exactly why I need 3 different id’s for this game.

    We’ll see, it’s a random drawing, same as last time.

  16. #16 by Sporty on April 15th, 2008 [ 95 Points ]

    I’d love a beta code. Probably wont win but no harm in entering :)

  17. #17 by Tosh Hatch on April 16th, 2008 [ 1102 Points ]

    Congrats Riggins44! You won, check your e-mail!

  18. #18 by Riggins44 on April 16th, 2008

    Thanks for the code brotha. I will make you proud.

  19. #19 by Mark on April 16th, 2008

    Oh man, I know it was a random drawing, but why does the guy who makes the 6th-grade-level homophobic remark get the code?

    Lame to the max.

    :-(
