This is the first Stereoscopic 3D / Head Tracking arcade game that I’m aware of. What’s cool too is that it’s a online game as well. It will arrive in arcades next week in Japan. Doubt it will ever leave Japan though, which is a shame because this looks like a blast!
This is basically a tweaked version of Metal Gear Online, which I still really enjoy to this day. I wonder if you’ll be able to do any CQC (close quarter combat), or set “traps”. If you have any friends in Japan have them try this out for us and report back. Here is the opening video for the arcade game:

Yes, Konami ID’s are going away. Starting with the release of Pro Evolution Soccer 2010. What about games that already use the ID? Konami has no plans to patch old games.
Most popular game to use the Konami ID is Metal Gear Online. If your letting the Konami ID stop you from even trying the game. You are missing out. Good news if there is a Metal Gear Online 2 it should be Konami ID free.
MGO has been updated to 1.33, it has a lot of bug fixes you can see the whole list here. It says “Damage for direct throws has been tuned.” Wonder if that means you can’t knock them out with one throw anymore with CQC-EX. Then the automatic CQC counter will only work if CQC’ed from the front. I prefer that actually, CQC-EX was to overpowered.
All this week Konami will have surprises for the one year anniversary of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. First surprise is free bikinis for those that have purchased the GENE expansion pack. Video of that in action below.
Another new surprise is a new stage, called the Icebound Inferno, which is also known as the “MGS4′s windy blizzard Shadow Moses stage.” Sounds like a great stage, I gotta try that. Then it seems like Snake will be selectable in more ways.
Wonder what other surprises Konami will have this week.
These new updates are available to everyone, not just those who purchased SCENE. There will be a new game mode called Race Mission, which goes live on May 12th. Details are below:
This mode pits two teams against each other, with the Blue Team searching for and protecting the KEROTAN target, and the Red Team searching for and protecting the GA-KO target. Each time a team passes a check point with its target in hand, a new checkpoint will be generated. If a team drops its target and the target is not retrieved within a set period of time, the target’s position will be reset and the checkpoint will change.
Sounds fun to me, but it will depend how well your team helps protect the carrier of the KEROTAN/GA-KO. This mode will force teamwork that’s for sure, which is good. The other new feature is called the “Patriot” which is available to all players, starting on May 26th. I wonder what the recoil is like on the gun. I hope I’m lucky enough to get selected for a week.
This feature will select a few lucky players every week starting from the 26th, and give them exclusive access to a 5.56mm Hand Rifle with infinite ammunition and no reload. Players will have access to these unique “Patriot” features until the next ranking update. You’d better watch out when a “Patriot” joins your game!
I’m amazed the support Metal Gear Online is getting, they have added a lot of features since it’s release. Plus they have something in store for the one year anniversary of Metal Gear Solid 4. Mmm, wonder what it could be.
Just a reminder you can purchase the MGO Expansion packs with the PlayStation Network Wallet now.
the option to purchase additional content using PlayStation®Network wallet. Just select the in game menu “MGO Shop(PlayStation®Network)”. The MGO shop now keeps you within the game itself. You can press square on the item you want to purchase to learn more and it opens a web browser with more info. If you press x you are taken to the PlayStation Store to purchase.
But I have a feeling that if you search for MGO content on the PlayStation Store itself, it won’t be there, but let me know if it is. The 1.31 update itself is pretty small so it doesn’t take long. Be sure to select the HTTP download.
Right now I’ve been splitting my gaming time between Killzone 2 and Metal Gear Online. Both are fun games, but there is always stuff to unlock with Metal Gear Online, that why I keep going back to it. My MGO name is xBerserker if your curious. There is also some bonus points being handed out:
