The recently updated teaser site for Metal Gear Online has announced that the Metal Gear Online Beta will be starting April 14th 2008.
I get my CD. I have this game pre ordered from play.com for ages.
The Beta will be available in April 14th , but it won't start Until April 24th
yea that is what they said before but i don't read Japanese so can't verify but they did say JP wouldn't need to pre order to get in. I will pre order my copy on tuesday when i go to Gamestop. Just wish i had a little bit more info before i pre ordered. This whole pre order thing isn't being handled as well as it can
I'm waiting to pre-order until I know exactly where we need to go to get the game early so we can get in the beta.
im going to pre order from gamestop today so when i recieve my stuff
so if I preorder this game from ANYPLACE I can get into the beta?
All Major Retailers != anywhere Edit: Meaning bestbuy, walmart, target, gamestop circuit city etc. Im going to best buy easiest place for me to get a preorder. Everyone goes to gamestop thats going to be hectic trying to get your mgs out of that store on launch.
Guess I'll put my pre-order in for Amazon. That's a major retailer.
Anyway, I can't wait to play the beta. I've had my preorder in for a while and this will keep me occupied for about a week.
I just hope they realise though that on April 29 their servers will be empty. Once I've got GTAIV in my house I'll completely forget about this.
You and me both lol GTAIV is going to be my main multiplayer for the entire summer. I've been hoping, and I'm sure they are, including leaderboards and unlockables similar to COD4, but with the GTAIV style incorporated.
That's so close to GT5prolgue. >_<
lol how pathetic will it be if this game's beta comes before the home open beta let alone the home release. what is taking soooooo long
yeah they should just release things regardless.....it worked for microsoft.
This beta thing is going to work. Will there be like a code they give you inside the pre order case that you input online so they send to your psn store the beta? Thats the most logical thing I can think of like what they did with the home/warhawk beta. Also why is the beta so close to launch date? What if there are bugs how are they going to fix it in time?
they should hold the release of mgs 4 until a month after gta4 or something, as this si too much, ppl are going to have to choose.
choose? I buy both!
MGS4 doesn't come out until June 12. That's about a month and a half in between releases.
There is no mention about beta start on apr 14...
So maybe 14th for JAP... but Konami has confirmed April 21st for NA. http://blog.us.playstation.... Q: When is the Metal Gear Online multiplayer beta test? A: The Metal Gear Online multiplayer beta test is scheduled to begin on April 21, 2008. Q: How long will the Metal Gear Online beta test run? A: The Metal Gear Online multiplayer beta test will run for approximately 2 weeks
Konami EU hasn't announced any specifics like Konami NA has yet.. but EU will have the beta too.
I have to wait till my birthday to get MGS4 which is june 24, a week or so I believe after it's release.
Oh well, have fun guys :(
U might have to wait longer than that if you want to find a copy of mgs 2 weeks later gl. Edit: At below 2 I think things just take xtremely longer to get passed in UK I blame your government rather than the devs. They locked up Manhunt2 for an extremely long time for no reason its kind of sad and probably cost devs a bit of cash.
How are people in the UK supposed to get into this... Edit: This information comes from the japanese version. If you go to the american or british version, that page is greyed out. So it will probably be different in the UK.
Because Dev's HATE us.
I got jap code :D its so easy to do.
you said you have the JPN code? how did you get it? r you going to turn around and get the usa code then the EU to stay in the beta for a good 6-8 weeks also? if so thats awesome help me out lol
I hope Mgs4 does turn out to be hard to find after 2 weeks, good for Kojima, Sony and the Ps3, though not good for me.
However, I'm gonna be playing GTA4 still by that time, it's gonna be hard to find some time with so many good PS3 titles to choose from and play.
i dont understand man!!!!! will we be able to get the beta key 14th april ? or is this for japan only ?
you can get a code from mgo teaser site(need to read japanese text).
beta dl will start on apr 17.
beta will start on apr 21.
yeah how did you get the code tell us plz :D:D:D
Will it be on that strange thing called a xBox360??? ;-D
I got the Japanese Code :)
