Konami ID Registration Walkthrough

Here are some tips to get your Konami ID registered.

Get ready to do some speed typing because anything less will get you the inactivity error. I recommend using Firefox as your browser, as I also tried with Internet Explorer and it didn't work as well.

Go to https://id.konami.net/login.do

Click Register

The next page asks you to enter your country (which is already at United States), your language (already set at English), and your Date of Birth. Click Next

The following page requires you to agree to the Terms and Conditions, so without reading anything click agree.

This next page is where you need to do your speed typing. I suggest using the tab button to get to each line as fast as possible. The process (only the required info) will look something like this:

Konami ID (must be 8 characters or over using letters, numbers, and underscores. Must be lower case letters)

Password (must be 8 characters or over using letters, numbers)

Re-enter password

Mothers Maiden Name

GAME ID (cannot be the same as Konami ID, must be 8 characters or over, must use lower case letters) (Metal Gear Online, PS3)

I can't even download the patch let alone get on that stupid site, Konami are crap with anything online just like PES

Can you wait a sec then say that again... I am going to get my violin to play along with your sad sad story. lol

I d/led the beta and update last night. The update took a while, but I survived!
CrazyMystical  +   2780d ago
come on konami next let sony handle the distribution & just stick to making the good games you guys are known for.
JimmyHACK  +   2780d ago

thank goodness some of us listened Monday and signed up when told... don't just blame Konami blame all the people that made the fraudulent ID's as well. I love how many of the fraudulent ID people that now have to make a legit one can't and b1tch... heh

yep took me bout 5 hours to dl the beta and patch lol now I cant get an id cause the sites borked...
lets hope they get their act together soon so i can get in on the beta b4 monday sigh.
M0KILLaU  +   2780d ago
They should have
stated that you need a ID on the beta invite card that came with the dvd, now we have to suffer with all these free-bees.
Sev  +   2780d ago
I agree they should have noted this in the insert that had the beta code.
Fishy Fingers  +   2780d ago
Sorry, am I missing something.

What exactly is this all about?

I just DL the beta, I can watch the video, or try and connect to a game but obviously no luck there. All I get is a "network problem" message then I have to quit back to XMB and load it up again. Shows V1.0

No where does it ask me about a patch or a Konami ID? (I'm UK BTW)

Help = Bubbles.
Bribery = Quicker Reply :)

Not sure how it works for the UK.
US and Japan need to sign up for a Konami ID.

When you go to log into a game it doesnt ask you to enter a GAME ID to login?

If it doesnt then it probably isnt needed for you guys in the UK or Europe.

I will take a pic of what I mean by GAME ID and post it back here to maybe clear some things up for you.
Fishy Fingers  +   2780d ago

Dude scratch that. Now its asking me for the update. Does it ask for your ID after that?

Here is a pic of the need to log in with a GAME ID...

Do you get this when you go to log in?

When you get to the title screen, click start game, then accept the terms. That should bring you to the update/patch everyone is talking about.

You should have MGO version 1.01

Once you are done downloading the patch, quit game, and restart.
Then click start game, accept the terms, and you should be prompted to log in.
See if you need a GAME ID to log in.
Fishy Fingers  +   2780d ago
Right I'm totally with you know. Sorry for being a complete noob there. Bubbles as promised. Thanks for your time, really appreciate it.

No problem, I wasnt helping for the bubbles. I was helping just to help.

I know the frustration everyone is having. I spent almost all day trying to sign up for a Konami ID. Its really a terrible process, and Konami should have just let it go by PSN ID.

I made this walkthrough to ease everyones frustration. I just hope everyone gets through and gets their ID
Hellsvacancy  +   2780d ago

Every one thats going
to participate in the beta has to have a konami ID.
cr33ping_death  +   2780d ago
im trying to download the update right now. but i keep getting an error blah blah blah and have to exit the game and restart. good thing is that im at 40 something precent and it saves where i left off.
cr33ping_death  +   2780d ago
update :) im at 75 percent
nutjuice  +   2780d ago
Even though I have the code
I won't jump through hoops to use it
Fishy Fingers  +   2780d ago
Your lose not Konami's.
JimmyHACK  +   2780d ago
Oh how Sony needs to step in
and make Konami use PSN ID's for final retail product
machete squad steve  +   2780d ago
Did you hear that
konami ID will be used the the final? I would think it will be under the PSN.
jmare  +   2780d ago
EZCheez  +   2780d ago
I can't make it past the service agreement page on id.konami.net
Every time I click agree I just get an error.
machete squad steve  +   2780d ago
yesterday i got past the user id input
but then got the time out error. Today is even worse same as you. I have a feeling this will not get better now that every one can join.

Konami f up by not shipping the dvds to europe pre orders, and now by giving the beta away they f all of us who showed respect by pre ordering.
EZCheez  +   2780d ago
I didn't even think about that
Now that another entire continent will be trying to get Konami ID's, it's going to be even more ridiculous.

Don Ahid  +   2780d ago
passed the log in screen yet i am just finished dl the patch
Cerberus_Hunter  +   2780d ago
Awfull site!
The site is loading too slow to do anything...I've been stuck at the part where you input your age for about 20 minutes now.
Salta_nelas  +   2780d ago
Konami sucks so bad in online components...

First PES and now this! I just hope this beta isnt laggy as PES.
Don Ahid  +   2780d ago
its not ave played the first MGO n dat was good not laggy
Hellsvacancy  +   2780d ago
thanks 4 the up
my ps3's broke at the min (thank u gt5p) ive gotta wait untill 2moz 2 get a replacement, i kinda like it in the gamerzone ill use it more often in the open zone ill ask a question that'll then start a full scale-war, thanks 4 helpin...
BigKev45  +   2780d ago
That sucks
You have to do all that work, only on PS3, lol.
EZCheez  +   2780d ago
You're right
Good thing 360 owners don't have to do that.
jmare  +   2780d ago
@ EZCheez
That's funny.
jmare  +   2780d ago
How does konami take something so beautiful and cover it in $hit? The beta will be awesome (most likely), but jumping through all the hoops is a pain in the ass.
Superiorrior  +   2780d ago
To everyone complaining the site is slow and unresponsive, or the patch is downloading to slow, it's your own fault, it's everyone fault the site is being over flooded and NO there is no way to prepare for it, everyone is trying to get to the same website as the same time, and this is ALOT of people.

Sit down and shut up, quit whining about it like a little b!tch, or just leave the beta seriously.
jmare  +   2780d ago
Wow, big man aren't you? How is it my fault Konami didn't announce that you needed a Konami ID to play the beta? How is it my fault I wasn't even sure I was going to be able to participate in the beta because my PS3 had died and I just got it replaced two days ago? I didn't think I was going to be able to get in when I heard about best buy having the beta code preorders too. So it's my fault that I got lucky enough to get a pre-order with beta code and then Konami gives it away? It's my fault that Konami didn't anticipate the demand their servers would be under and didn't make preperations? Whatever, ass.
EZCheez  +   2780d ago
Sorry but what you're saying is ridiculous
There's no way to prepare for it? Says who? You? Okay Hideo Kojima.

Look. Take it as whing or whatever you want to, but the simple truth is that everything said is pure FACT. The website does not work. Metal Gear Solid 4 is the first of the HUGE PS3 "killer apps" being released this year and there is a beta for it. Who wouldn't want to be a part of it? So rather than prepare for heavy traffic at a site for a needed password used for the beta (that won't even be needed when the game officially releases) they just wing it. And look at what's happening. So sure, go ahead and blame it on us. Whatever helps you sleep at night.

Besides, I'm guessing you're either one of the 5 people who already have an ID or you didn't even make it into the beta and you're taking your hatred out on us.

This is what happens
when you play to much time crisis, you just start lashing out with no reasoning behind it. So sad
Superiorrior  +   2780d ago
More examples of being whiney little brats, who cares it's a free beta for some , for others you have to pay 5 dollar deposit that goes towards the game, how do you prepare being flooded do you people not understand the simple mechanics of a website? EVERYONE is trying to get in at the same time, maybe this is to advanced for your a little brains but common sense is practical, think of it like a opening of a new super store, and 90,000 people are trying to get in the front door, it's not gonna work out for most of us and YES, I got my code and KONAMI ID like the rest of you, I "STRUGGLED" through it.

You guys make it sound like your god damn war veterans, if you don't like it piss off, they're doing what they can.


How am I lashing out? If your gonna be whiney little b!tchs then some one has to put you in your place.

ironmunk  +   2780d ago
Are you serious?? This is simply bad resource allocation on Konami's part. You think Amazon or Google has problems with too much traffic? You simply allocate the resources needed to support the estimated load its not rocket science!

Konami simply didn't plan properly (or didn't want to spend the money).

The idea that somehow they are not responsible because lots of people are trying to register, they must be saying to themselves 'damn didn't see that one coming!!, oh wait didn't we release that beta for one of the biggest games likely to have come out on the PS3 so far' 'no idea why that would cause any increase in load ....'
jmare  +   2780d ago
@ Domultra 2nd post
Actually, I am a god damn war veteran. What's your point.

Ironmunk is right. There are many ways to deal with high traffic on a website. The simplest (and cheapest) would have been making it explicitly understood that you need a Konami ID and Game ID to participate in the beta. That way people could have had them for weeks and just waiting instead of trying for days to get a bull$hit code that won't even be relevant when the game is released. That is why people are pissed. Everyone who is playing the beta already has a psn ID. Why do we need another one? And since Konami is screwing the pooch and making it mandatory to have one, they should have had the foresight to make the process as smooth as possible.
EZCheez  +   2780d ago
Make that TWO war veterans
Yeah, I'll take you seriously. As seriously as anyone can take someone like you on the internet. I know people like you and I can guarantee that this is the only medium where you would get away with something like that. So enjoy the internet. It's obviously your only escape.

You just keep letting out your aggressions with this and your little plastic gun, okay?

the ID site is always BUSY!!! i cant get that stupid ID..

i honestly hope that they will be using better servers or alot more servers to handle the millions of online ppl that will be playing this on a day to day basis
jmare  +   2780d ago
I doubt there will be millions playing in the beta. If that were the case, they might as well have released it. Since it's global, it will probably be a couple hundred thousand, but maybe not even that high.
tmarshall11  +   2780d ago
give me answers please!!
Im in the UK and would love to participate in the mgo beta, i am not too sure on how to do so. Iv signed up to konami and recieved a konami id, game id, ive also downloaded the mgo beta from psn store and its currently downloading a patch or something via p2p, what else do i need to do, do i need a code or something, please help! and rest my case lol
machete squad steve  +   2780d ago
pray to your God,
cuz unless there is a miracle this beta is screwed for allot of us true believers.

This stinks Im going to try around 2:00AM. I hope they fix this!!
gameforall  +   2780d ago
I haven't got that far yet, but
it seems you enter/sumbit the code (ie. konami id, game id)
once you have updated and restarted the software
jmare  +   2780d ago
This sucks. I'm trying with both IE and firefox and still nothing.
tmarshall11  +   2780d ago

M0KILLaU  +   2780d ago
Did you read the
article? because that is exactly what it is about.
SEAN1617  +   2780d ago
this is only for the beta s othey can get feed back
The final version of MGO will be on psn
Captain Tuttle  +   2780d ago
Rookies ;-)
Adamalicious  +   2780d ago
I just got an ID - it's true, the trick is to go really really fast. Still haven't managed to get the confirmation to work, but I'm nearly there!
Sev  +   2780d ago
Yup hence my speed typing comment in the article.

And thats the point of the walkthrough so you can have an idea of what you are gonna type in, and prepare to do it really really fast.
EZCheez  +   2780d ago
I just wish I could get to the step
To actually type something in.
tosh61  +   2780d ago
i've been trying for like 4 hours and still nothing. do you have to have the id to download the beta after you entered in your code, or the id is for playing the beta online?
Adamalicious  +   2780d ago
you just need the Konami ID and Game ID for playing - starting on the 21st. You can download the beta with your code and then run it to install the patch.
vic_doom  +   2780d ago
has anyone else got stuck on the user agreement screen? i cant get it past the agreement screen to d/l the update. wtf, this makes me feel like ive downloaded a cracked game off mirc
andron666  +   2777d ago
Cheezes, so many whiners...
I have had the same problems, but this is a Beta preview. The whole point is to find problems and fix them.
