"The update currently being implemented will modify the way in which the beta client connects to our server." That's the release note for it. You cannot still connect but apparently they are getting ready for tomorrow's beta opening..
Hopefully it won't take me 3 hours to download like the last one did. With that said, I can't wait to play this tomorrow.
And it appears the Patch has been taken down according to the source post.
Yeah, well I just can't wait to see if they actually get it running tomorrow first before I get my hopes up again..
nah it took me 5 minutes p2p. its a pretty small download compared to the pain in the a$$ that was v1.01.
what i meant it's that you can't actually play the beta. i was downloading and submitting news at the same time
haha i made it thru and got the download just in time. Beta better come thru this time no screw ups
Is there any word on the time the beta goes live?
Friday @ 24:00 PST, so midnight between Friday and Saturday.
That wouldn't exactly be on the 25th then now would it?
WTF!? that's 3am here on saturday morning. i thought i was gonna get to sink my teeth in when i got off work.
Don't worry dude 12 midnight is technically the 26th so I don't see that as being correct.
i downloaded the patch but when i try to get on agin it sais network server error or somethiing like that WTF
what is the size of it
dont worry its a small update
man this game just keeps having issues. I hope this isnt another 5 hour download like the last one
No worries its a small update.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... NOT AGAIN WHY WHY ME
not like i have any choice now.
I think I speak for everyone when I say the following: I just want to play the damn beta Konami. Who's leg do I have to hump for you guys to speed up the beta process and get us online?
Vamp's. He has a thing for that you know.
i did download the patch and now they are taken the update offline? so what happen to those who downloaded the patch? and what will happen to those who didn't? please someone answer me !!!
Your PS3 will brick. You have to delete MGO and download again, then download that long ass update. If you don't believe me just google "lemon party" and you will see.
they will prolly put it back again... the beta dosnt start before tomorrow at midnight so stay calm and be patient lol
I just went online and downloaded it. I saw this story about two hours ago on the PS Boards and tried but it had already been taken down, so this is the second time it's been available. EDIT-By the way, it goes MUCH faster than the 1.01 patch. I got it in about 5 minutes.
At least Konami is trying to get this to work right. Since people are saying it is a small update I hope it won't cause any problems.
I CBA with this anymore. i know its a beta, an we shouldnt expect much. but comeon! if you mention the chance to play MGS/MGO early, you know how high profile it will become. they should deal with it soooon! oh well, hopefully not long to go before i PWN ME SUM NUBS :D
I dont see any reason to complain this time around . Giving the patch prior to launching (relaunching rather) the beta is better than having to deal with the swarm from the get go .
Patch is back up!
is up again im d/ling it now
I'm not wasting as much time this week, if there's any sign of BS, back to COD for me. Creek was insanely fun. Ugh, this patch is going as slow as the last one, what do I have to do? Any certain port I have to set it on? Guess I'll have to try Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, X, Circle.
Thanks Konami. =P
Yep it is back up!
Patch 1.02 is definitely back up, just downloaded it in around 5mins. Now all we need is for Metal Gear to be Online :o)

Heey devilbringer vad har du för psn?och hur är läget!?

i downloaded the update resarted game now im on this game were it says start match and pick your character
Mine don't get connect still with the 'Unable to Connect' message.

its 6 PM and we STILL! have not got it I'm stil w8ing tho i want this now :(
its friday to sat midnight
PLS so i dont have to stay up and w8 for it:p post a link or something :)
That was a fast patch. Fast download too.
dude if they delay again, im skipping it , i mean this was suppose to be my lil pacifier until tuesday. but oh well they hurting themselves. I wonder who will be playing the beta when tuesday comes? Im sure alot of people still will but not me..Im going to be playing GTA 4 for aslong as i can keep my eyes open , i plan to literally fall asleep with my controller in my hand every night for the first week atleast. then non stop responsible gaming with GTA4 until mgs4 releases in june... to hell with any other games
Downloaded (Pretty fast, took like 5 minutes or so) and Ready to go
If you really wanna play MGO, it shouldnt matter what's coming out or how long this beta takes to be opperational. I have GTA4 reserved for my PS3, and when that comes out... I will still find time to squeez MGO into play... why?? 1. It's a beta 2. Gives me the chance to build up my character earlier 3. Gives me a heads up on what MGS4 will play like 4. The real game wont be released untill June 12th... maybe even the 17th. who knows.
... Hopefully im ready to roll now... Cant wait to get my hands on this... Have fun guys and see you online
I don't think I had ever waited for a game as much as I am waiting for this one :) Come on Konami, we were patient before, but now your time is up!!
It took me 12 hours to download the last one of P2P. I hope it will be far less.
and i cant get the 1.02 patch because i need the 1.01, but its no where to be found, can somenoe seed for me?
start the game and it will prompt you to install 1.01.
maybe i didnt ask correctly, of course i started the game...but it sprompts me to download the 1.01 patch...which is no where to be found, can someone please seed it?
The patch that is, not the servers... not yet atleast the HTTP gives me an error, download using P2P... it's pretty friggin fast compared to last time.
i Am PhSyCiC!!! lol i said theyd make another one, good thing its faster tho!! "I AM CABOOSE!! THE VEHICLE DESTROYER!!!"
THE BETA IS UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was surprised how quick this update went.
