IGN: MGS4: Bonus Disc Impressions - We have our Metal Gear Online beta key. Do you?

IGN writes: "If you're like us, all you do is talk about Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Sure, you make time for work, family and other games, but when your mind starts wandering, your thoughts end up centered on the bounty of awesomeness that's coming to America on June 12th.

The Metal Gear Saga Volume 2 will hopefully whet your appetite. An MGS4 pre-order bonus, the DVD gives you more than 20 minutes of back story on the franchise's deep history, five MGS4 trailers and your key for the Metal Gear Online beta.

For most Metal Gear fanboys, the Metal Gear Online beta info will be the most important thing in Volume 2's sleek package. A single sheet of paper provides you with a 12-digit code that will allow you to download the PlayStation Network file from April 17, 2008 to May 5, 2008. Once you grab the download from your PlayStation 3's Transaction Management screen, you'll be able to play the multiplayer title from April 21, 2008 to May 5, 2008."

i most certainly do!!!

The MGS4 disc that comes with the beta key is a great culmination of the history of the games. Anyone that isn't too familiar with what's going on really needs to get this.

I'll be honest. It's been a while since I played and I had forgotten some details. It's a great recap.

Crazyglues3901d ago (Edited 3901d ago )

I'm in... -and I should say the DVD was better then I was saying before it is in HD, I had my settings adjusted all wrong.

so watching the trailers over was cool too. in nice HD.

can't wait for the beta to start.

Clerk said there waiting for the order... like wth mind you we live in a boondock city in northern canada sigh.

Qbanboi3901d ago

Can you explain me how. I mean, i was all sad, because i though that it was a Blu-ray, and everything on HD. But, it seen all bad on my HDTV.

Btw, i'm totally in, on the beta. ^^

ErcsYou3901d ago

I got mine.... i got a call from gamestop yesterday so i drove down there like a bat out of hell only to find out that the call came early and i had to wait until today to pick it up..... I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders the second i touched it because i no longer have to worry about what i would do to the gamestop employees if they fu$ked up this beta for me.... see you there,

yeah I was wondering the same thing at first, but all you have to do is adjust the video on PS3 just press X or whatever button brings up that menu to adjust the video when your playing it and it goes into wide screen then your fine.

@ gamesR4fun

- your in Canada, well you better start hitting up eBay because I don't think it's coming to your store...

tweaker3901d ago (Edited 3901d ago )

I think Kojima didn't put it in Bluray because it's currently a bit expensive to distribute for free and secondly, some people that preordered the game probably do not even have a PS3 or Bluray player yet.

The DVD is great though. Great for those that need quick insights or a memory refresh.

sonarus3901d ago

Blu ray would be a waste for the approx 20min footage in the DVD.
How does anyone without a ps3 plan to get into the beta?

SL1M DADDY3901d ago

Can't wait guys! If I am not on your friends list and you are going to play this one a bit, add me. It's about all I will be playing the day it starts.
