Due to incredibly high demand for the Metal Gear Online Beta test, we are aware that some of you are experiencing difficulties connecting to the Konami ID site.
put more and more servers. Still have some time before June 12.
How did you direct us exactly to that specific post?
on the orange name on top of the post and the page will reload at that exact point..
thats why i signed up day 1 i'm ready ;)
After struggling i finally got thru. Thanks a lot to some tip on fire fox. Wasn't easy though. Konami really needs to scrap this konami id game id thing they have planned. If they are under estimating servers for the beta, just think of how fvkd up things will be when the game releases.
Think we were their Guinea pigs:-/ Thanks Konami:-/
I'm still updating the update(U.K version) (Seems faster today tho)
I heard the demand was so high that people are anticipating Wii-sized shortages!
huh, i didnt really have a problem getting through.
well good to see. ( not the problems but the high demand) i really wonder hom many pre-orders this game has>.?
A lot. Whole europe. Lots of Japan and Americans.
I hope he has extends his beta date from May 5th to something like June 12th, lol.
not screw this up! Awww poor Konami, they have to put up more servers to support the HUGE profits they'll be raking in this summer.
"bu-bu-but nobody uses PSN," cries the 360 fanboy.
I really hope this games sell very well. Kojima team deserves it.
Yes he does but he will never enjoy it He is such a perfectionist lol but i guess that is what makes him such a great developer
'I had a vision of going 10 steps forward, but I only sold 17.9 million copies, I am very dissapointed with myself.'
Just goes to show the popularity of this blockbuster
I can't wait to see what went on in the mind of Kojima (the mad scientist aka perfectionist) when MGS4 hits stores. :)
edit: and to my post below, those are only gamestop.com comments. Don't even think for one second that I own halo. :)
to the title...
... no shiet ?
You will be greeted with:
The reason I am buying my PS3.
Halo Killer (and I own Halo)
Better than life.
I can't wait to get my PS3.
Read it and weep. Go read it for yourself. :)
the site is working for me now. and its pretty fast. i just got another konami ID
I have been trying to sign up all day one of the gayest registration processes I have been through yet >_<
i made a konami id last week so im all set..besides americans who didnt pre order got there beta from the europe store..at least i did..but i hope it works im dying to play it
Lmao I wonder why it took the Konami ID site crashing for them to figure this out.
should've seen it coming
well they should, I finally got an ID, but im not gettin that confirmation email.
i downloaded from EU store lolzz n now 95% almost done wit the 1.1 update cant wait n i just did my konami id thingy all set =) n guys the site is workinn !!
I get to 2% on european beta and then it fails.
Okay, here is where I stand... 1. Reserved MGS4 via Gamestop and was given the beta dvd with a 9 digit code. 2. Emailed Konami support to report an invalid key. 3. Waited two days to receive valid code. 4. Finally downloaded MGO beta, but UGH, update available. 5. Downloaded patch after 2 hours via p2p and installed. 6. After 30 minutes of trying to register for Konami ID, finally finish registration process. 7. Waiting on confirmation email to finish this mess.
If you don't get your email after like 10-30 minutes log into your account on the Konami website and resend the validation email because I got mine instantaneously when I registered earlier today So yea don't want you sitting around waiting for this email for ages lol
Did Konami really underestimate Metal Gear Online's popularity that bad? They gotta be happy about it.
for my e-mail confirmation.
People are getting so upset by this. Yeah 2 more ID's is ridiculous, but I can deal with it. And I'm sure the servers will be fixed up before monday. It'll be Okay people :)
Servers are down again
I love in the replies (of the blog) how people are complaining so much, what is the big deal? No one is missing any play time, so why the fuss. Now if these problems persist through Monday, THEN we have some issues.
my e-mail confirmation. Either I will have 17 confirmations in my mailbox, or nothing. Not as if it will matter on Monday anyway. 13 hour work day= way too tired to play when I get home
this is just insane it claims that it already registered my email address so I can't use it then I go to "forgot konami id" type in email address an d it says it hasn't been registered. The website it self has a personal vendetta against my password "8-32 alphanumeric" the whole GOTDAMN thing is alphanumeric. What were they thinking!?
I had the same problem through most of today. What i did was use a different e-mail address all together. Then i had the same problemo with the password. The password has to be at least 8 letters but what i did was make a password and added a number to it at the end and it worked like a charm. I was ready to give up but that worked for me. I suggest you try it out.
that's exactly what's happening to me what the he'll do they mean by alphanumeric cuz I'm trying numbers then letters then numbers & letters and apparently my email & konami Id has been used already this is a major WTF I'm about ready to break something
Amidst the frustration that I had with that crappy site, I finally got the useless ID. I really don't see the purpose of this ID hassle Konami, this is going to be one of my complaints when I give my feedback of the beta since neither the GAME ID nor the KONAMI ID are going to be even visible online (Yup that's right not usable at ALL) Other than that, see you online!
ahh this sh1t sucks. i enter in my game id into the beta and then it says server error.
Isn't that because it doesn't start until April 21st? I believe so.
Uh yeah, Ri0t is correct, kinda thought that was common knowledge right now.
I'm glad they responded on that playstation blog post - sounds like the site is working better. Se y'all online - game ID: adamalicious
It took me the whole of yesterday to download the patch.
I LOVE PS blog :D:D:D
I'm all signed up and ready to go. Everyone better have mics, it will make the game more tactical.
ive got my konami id and game id and dwnlded the beta and patch, am i ready to go or is there a beta code i need?
2 days left
how can u guys even compare this game to halo...its not one whos those updated last gen games like halo3...the reason its always a master peice is tht kojima gives time to it....MGS 6 mil units sold, MGS2 7 mil unit sold, MGS3 3.7 mil sold( game dint do well coz it was big boss) now its the return of the whole crew back so u can imagine how big this game is gonna be....in ma view this games gonna be even alot better thn GTA4 though both cant be compared but in terms of story and all...and the GOTY....
do these codes and id's still need to be used for the uk ??
Konami and Gamer ID (with passwords) - Yes Beta codes - No
everyone needs the ID's, EU doesnt need codes you just download it from the store like its a fre demo
Is the ID website down ?, cos I keep getting errors.
...all you people lucky enough to get through and play...do your thing and play long, play hard, and play often. Long as they get the bugs and kinks worked out of the thing before I play to real version that's all that really matters.
i didn't get in so I hate you all
everybody can get in
EPIC!!!! kinda crazy opening it up for all of Europe. Its good to see them doing something cool for them after they get the shaft in the store :(
i actually got a konami ID, theres a solution up on the playstation forums
