If you were one of the people who pre-ordered MGS4 and have the voucher to be in the beta, the Beta is available to download, requiring 741 MB. Please be aware that the actual beta won't start until April 21st 2008 thru May 5th 2008
yup, downloading it now :)
Yip, seems to be true, what I want to know is there an offline training mode that can be accessed now??? If so I think i'm starting to feel ill and will have to leave work and go home IMMEDIATELY!!!
would be cool to make a LAN to play around with the controls, but seems like they're really emphasizing that no one will be able to play until the 21st...we'll see about that *squints eyes*
this blows more than 50cent bullet proof
To everyone who is having problems downloading: BETA CODE IS CASE SENSITIVE, so don't freak out.
have anyone play it yet? this game look like CS man can't wait
Do you guys think they might let us play early?
yeah it turns out people with the 9 digit codes have got the dvd's that where printed wrong, the code is suppose to be 12 digits, you can write konami and they should issue you a new one, Or you can do the online free one - http://www.onlineregister.c... just fill out the info and they should email you a code. But hurry I hear they are going quick and not everyone will get in.
there's already an update and it's taking forever to dl
How big is the download??
like 750mb... lol holding my breath while downloading and waiting for 21th.... O.o (passing out/ fall on the ground twitching)
For european PSN is Avalaible????
SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I wonder what Kotaku's negative spin on this will be? "THANKS FOR NOTHING SONY,THEY LIED ABOUT RELEASE DATE"
even thou kotaku kinda hates a little on everyone (not so much the wii) it's really not as bad as joystiq. For some reason they just have some type of nasty spin on any good ps3 news. They kinda have to thou because about 80% of their readers are 360 owner which since 2006 have been bashing the ps3 so they have to keep them happy
next Kotaku article: "MGO Beta Ready For Download, Broken?...Yup, so we finally downloaded the beta but we can't install it...is PSN doomed? We think so." (comment under article) "It IS doomed! XBL rules! brb...playing Halo 3"
Better now then wait for the sun to come up, since I don't want it to DL all day ;)
first one ever... :0)
Cool avatar man.
DL this second! ohh......
I cant wait to check this out i hope its as good as i think it is
Cool. Did not expect it right now. Can't wait to try it out on the 21st.
then you have to pull down an update and install that as well. they already have a version 1.1. very cool to see actual content for sure. theres a cool trailer in there as well. konami and game id process was kinda sucky but this is a freaking beta.
So is it playable now? Or do you still have to wait untill the 21st??
not playable, says cannot connect to server. but it wasnt supposed to be even downloadable until the 17th so maybe we get to play the 20th? :) (fingers crossed)
Cheers Scratch. Bubble for your time :) Use it wisely.
It's live right now.. Got me a beta key just today after about 20 something tries on the Konami website, I'm so pumped right now... 12%......
Did you just try over and over? Ha! I was going to say "coz it's not working for me" but I just got a code! Sweet Nectar!!
Isn't working for me. "The code you entered is not valid". I'm entering the code I got with my pre order. EDIT: Yeah, I'm entering it correctly. At least what's printed on the card. 9 digits. If it indeed 12 digits, then this is JUST...MY...LUCK *sigh*
Might sound silly, but are you sure you entered it correctly? If the problem persists, Id go back to the shop and demand another code.
I think it should be 12 digits...you enter 4 in each box
Then I entered it in all caps. Appears the code is case sensitive. ***Major Side note*** If you have an ISP who, like mine, blocks Torrent downloads, you may have a problem downloading the the MGO updates using the "peer-to-peer" option. When I do it, my modem drops my internet signal until I reset it.
I'm downloading the 1.01 update now, i tried the http thing first and cancelled my download since it wasn't connecting...or I was impatient. The peer-to-peer one is downloading though.
Its not working for me neither its getting be alittle upset, but i wonder if it really is 12 digits. if so, im gonna shove this back in gamestops face.
i mine had 9 digits too its suppose to be 12 email konmai about this thats what i did and they side they will give me a new one.If u need the email address it on the paper with the beta code
Said I needed more HDD space, came out, deleted some stuff, came back and it wont let me in lol. Gay. *EDIT: Nevermind, got it lol.
Just going through the menu was sick..lol..but the only thing that kinda sucks is the update download im doing now, but like everyone says its a beta so no biggie
Just text a mate to tell him I'm downloading the beta now. Trying to get him a little jealous :) He just text me back with a picture of his new PS3. He literally ran to Game to get one. Probably should of told him he cant play it until the 21st :)
i had to LOL in RL
does anyone know if you can still get a beta code if you pre-order it?
I believe so, yes. Remember the Beta doesnt kick off until the 21st, so you still have plenty of time.
i just whent to best buy and they have the metal gear saga vol.2 for $5
i would check the box as soon as i left the store if i were you. make sure you have a 12-digit code and not 9-digit. if so take it back
Installed, man the trailer that plays has me burning for the game even more. They really show you some of the things the SOP system is capable of, I only wish it had destruction :( but whatever I'll live. A few more things, there's an update for it and there's a P2P option available for it which uses a torrent application, which is kind of awesome. Also, I miss the jazzy electronica music of MGO on Portable Ops :( Lastly, like 5 people in my friendlist are in the game now hah.
Downloading right now. I'm at 22% last I checked. I actually stopped playing GT5p when I heard about this. lol
i am in europe but there is no download option so i used the jap code and im in :) downloading now 55%
Will pretty much last me until MGS4 actually comes out in June.
This will last you till the 5th. ; p
COD4 maps as well..
The O button isn't the confirm button on here all MGSs games have the O button as the confirm button this kind of gets me made lol
Ryan Payton has done a lot to westernize this game, so be grateful that you don't have to push 3-4 buttons simultaneously just to get a clean headshot. Even if it means you have to push X instead of O.
I got the BETA I can watch the trailer, I downloaded update 1.1. but when I have to enter my game ID I realized that, the GameID is in fact in JAPANESE, as the PS3 won't let you enter JAPANESE kanji in the game, it was useless for me. I am European so no worries, I'll get the full game tommorow, Just giving you a headsup.
A few weeks back. Sure hope theys be letting me play.
or is it any store that accepts preorders? Just wondering because I am going to pick up GT5P today and I will make sure to go to a store that honors this preorder beta key.
i went to best buy today and they had them.
Just make sure they have the DVD for people who pre-order - the code is in the case.
To whomever post this out. I am downloading it know. I was worried about doing it tomorrow with everybody trying to download at same time and first come first serve.
its first come first serve for the beta codes. once you have the code you are guaranteed to get the beta. the downloads themselves won't run out.
I just downloaded it and I can't wait for Monday it's going to be a awesome day.
Can't wait 'til the 21st! Hopefully it's as great at they say!
And waiting impatiently for the 21st.
cool I'll hit that download tonight and get it out the way. I guess I can give away my japanese beta code since I wont need that and the US one.
Now just hold my breath for 5 days and it on!
its taking a super long time its at 3% and has been downloading for 15min. said update 1.01
i cant see it on the eu ps store ? where is it ? im fricking out here !!!!! where is it ? is it only us ps store for now ? will the eropeans get the mgo icon later on the store ? tommorow ?
It's not going to be in the Store. You go to Account Management > Transaction Management > Enter PlayStation Card or Promo Code - then enter your 12 digit code and voila. I haven't heard that it's available for EU store yet, just US. Should be tomorrow if it's not already.
my code doesnt' work!!! (my code is from the DVD voucher) WTF Konami! i'm going to burn down the town! gRRRR!!!
Same here. I have a 9 digit code if that makes any difference but it's not happy. I just sent mgosupport a mail asking what's up. Email address is on the front side of the slip the code is on.
yeah i have a 9 digit code too. i think the printer messed up. i've emailed them already though
anyone who can help me find the mgo beta on the eu store ? plzzzzzzzzzzz????????????????? ? need help asap since i dont have any code so i cant go to account management ! so help plz wil i see my mgo beta icon tommorow then ?
I don't see the beta on the UK store but from what I understand on the US beta you redeem your code first and that makes the download available. But my code aint working so can't be sure =P
