It seems to be. It says that this item will be released on November 15, 2008. Pre-order now!
I guess that will contain a lot more than the "starter pack" we receive with MGS4. This also beg's the question of how much we will be charged to get that extra stuff. Still, Amazon is hardly concrete.
60 bucks? The game is online only common. Max is 40 bucks. Anyway i will be content with downloading map packs since i am getting MGS4:D
November release ??? highly doubt it !!! Beta is now.. and why the fu*k wait another 7 months ?
this is probably for those that only want to play MGS online and need a headset. i bet they're not releasing it until November to ensure all those that really want to play either game will just buy MGS4. that way they get both games, can start playing from the start, and MGS4 will see great sells.
59.99? November 15? Amazon doesn't really know but they try. Also I saw Socom: Confrontation on amazon for 59.99. isn't that suppose to be a PSN title?
All the questions, thought you might have trouble reading. Just a j/k. Sorry :(
I heard there's gonna be be bluetooth headset that comes with SOCOM. I'm not sure though. Maybe MGSO is $59.99 cause it'll include something else... Who knows?
MGO better be packaged with MGS4 like they said it would!
is packed with MGS4.
I will see how the beta is.
The starter pack is on the disk. You load up MGS4 and in the menu where is says New Game and Load game it will say Metal gear online and you select it to launch it.
Hmm this is weird. But at least we know the starter pack comes with MGS4
They may offer the game to gamers who want the Metal Gear Online minus the single player. lol To these few people, please get with the program. :)
oh snap! $60! hope it comes packed with additional Metal Gear goodness, I will wait a bit till the preorder to see what excactly I'll be getting
as of last week on the Kojima Productions report there where no plans to release a MGO retail disc since new maps will be added to the starter pack via DLC I dont think things would change that quick
Now THAT is a Metal Gear Solid style boxart...are you hearing that Konami? hint...hint: NA Box Art + Yoji Shinkawa = WIN
According to the podcast they currently have no plans to release the online part separately at least in perpetuity.
Can't I at least play the Starter Pack before I pre-order. Pushy. ;)
WTH? Konami never announced a MGO retail disc, much less releasing it it November. This is fake. On the last podcast they said MGS4 will include 6 maps with more via PS store. This $60 retail disc is not real.
Perhaps this disc is for those who (for some unbelievable reason) choose to buy MGO alone and not MGS4. I recall hearing that MGS4's MGO starter pack will be able to be added to with new maps anyway.
I would guess they will take the MGO game that is with MGS4 and any new DLC maps and package them together later as a stand alone product.. don't know who would buy MGO at a later time and not get MGS4 though.. guess we may wait and see if this is even an accurate listing
Kojima makes everyone happy and makes a legendary game, then Konami has to F**k it up by being Konami and greedy. What are they, the japanese version of EA? Thanks for dammpering my good-will towards MGS4.
By not selling a stand-alone version of MGO then it would further promote sales of MGS4. So this doesn't bother me at all since I planned to own MGS4 on day one anyways.
