Kombo Reports- "Late last night we delivered the disappointing news that the Metal Gear Online Beta had been delayed due to server constraints. When the delay initially occurred it appeared that Konami wasn't sure when they would be opening to the beta to gamers outside of Japan, but now we have an answer. Konami released an official response stating that the Metal Gear Online beta will relaunch on April 25.
Now before you get too excited, due note that Konami may delay the beta again if any unforeseen circumstances should arise, so let's hope that everything moves smoothly the second time around.
Start date: Planned for 04/25/2008 24:00(PDT). While the start is planned for the weekend, it may change due to unforeseen circumstances."
