The Metal Gear Online beta is now open for the United States.
I'm so hitting this tonight!! Add me PSN: SeanScythe
and to everyone that was upset about using a different screen name, you have the option to use whatever name you want after you log-in. my name in-game is MikeG115, just like on the PSN, and not mikeg115. i guess that's just for logging-in. still alot of unnecessary bs but at least it works.
You can also save your game id so you auto log in everytime. In reality its not as bad as we all thought but still unnecessary
Hit me up PSN: AIPHANES In game name: AIPHANES
I'll be in.....just as soon as I can get the updates...THAT has been a beeeotch... add me ..... racingx
Not very impressed tho really pretty dumbed down with the autolock and all.... Hopefully enough peeps will b!tch and they'll get it right b4 the release.
added the link to the official blog statement...i wonder why they're always so late
i still get unable to connect to server
It has been open to the U.S 2hrs ago
Nope, not working for me. I guess they are banning all ips outside us/europe/australia/japan
I'm still getting server errors...
is a lie!!
Im in it now. It's awesome.
i still can't DL the version 1.01! this completely blows!
The 1.02 patch downloaded in about a minute or two. Had one server error on the first try and then everything went perfectly. Amazing graphics. Completely lagfree. Deep gameplay, really need to spend some time getting up to speed on the controls and weapons.
Yep, just 5 hours to go before I'm no longer "Accountant" I'm "Glassmaster" Master of you A**es!!!! hehe, see you all on the servers!!!!
NOOOOO i have to be @ work in 6hrs...NOT ENOUGHT TIME!!!!
How dare they tease us like this!
It was up in the US before I went to work about 2 hrs ago. I couldn't login at first because I had to change my game ID password to a password with only numbers on the Konami site, after that I was able to login to the beta...but didn't have to to create my character. Btw, I also found out your Game ID still isn't the name you're using in the game...once you login you have to choose your REAL game tag lol...so much stuff to remember and enter, but I hope the beta permanently remembers my ID and passwords now
it let me in
Ive been playing for about 2 hrs now. The servers seem to work good as soon as you get into a game. Sometimes the game lags out in between rounds or sometimes when your waiting to start a new game. The game is really cool, can't get enough well worth the wait
anybody outside NA able to get in??
I can't find the damn download client on the EU store! WTH is it?!?!
Thanks for nothing, guys...
090B:0000000001 That is the error. Why can some of us not get in while others are? Did you have the beta keys? Who else can not get in? Edit: I downloaded the Europe version, updated in the us. So far no go. I live in the usa by the way. Any suggestions? I'm on the East coast if that makes a difference. Anyone else on the East coast having problems?
i wont let me enter the beta it keeps sayin that i cant connect to their servers, Although i have a game id and a good connection this must be konamis fault
Hopefully they'll work it out soon. I think only the US gets it and not the rest of North America, at least right now
Online is great, hardly any lag.
Are you guys in US? Maybe they are blocking ip's
i also think they are blocking ip's. So those who cant connect are you from outside USA/NA??
Played for about a half an hour, will be back on tonight. Online is silky smooth. The game is much slower (character movement) than COD4 so you might be taken aback; tactical action describes this game. Graphically MGS4 Online is boss. In game name: Creedo PSN ID: undertheblue Add me
How would you compare the overall speed of game play to warhawk?
But you get used to it after a couple of matches. I got to play for about half an hour before handing the TV back over to the kids. Goodness knows Curious George is far more important than a MGO beta. Anyway, I'll be back on tonight after 8. EDIT-r1000. The gameplay is much slower. Much more tactical and resembling of SOCOM. The only negative I've found in the game so far (for me) is that you really have to unload on somebody before they die. I'm talking like a mag and a half unload. I have gotten a few headshots in though. They are obviously FAR more effective than anything else. Here's one tip- DO NOT USE AUTO-AIM. You'll hit your target but you can't control where you hit them and it takes much longer to get your kill. All of this stuff is pretty obvious but some people might not know.
thanks EZcheez... Hmm... don't know... i wasn't a big fan of Socom... i'll see later on tonight....
One thing that really seperates this from SOCOM is the life bar. No one in SOCOM could last this long. Seriously, it takes quite a while sometimes to take people out, especially from a distance. I did get lucky one time though and get a headshot on a guy on the roof of one building. It was complete luck but I felt like a bad*ss.
teamwork really pays off in this game. Oh and yeah they move slow, but I think it kind of fits the style.Not meant to be UT or anything.
they cant be blocking Ips cause im in UK and have downloaded the UK beta Still dont work Konami messed up again
i like it so far. getting use to the controls.
090B:00000001 090B:00000001 thats all I see!!!!!!!!!
are you from US/NA? or outside US?
Hey, is it ok if you're in the U.S. and you downloaded the beta from the UK? I got all my game id passwords and stuff. So I'm hoping I can join in tonight with everyone else.
Its probably being filled up right now, and trust me when you finally get it and know what your doing the game is great.
I hate every single last one of you bastards that got into the beta today. I waited all night to hopefully sneak in early. Now I am at work. So in summation. Everyone that got in, can die. :|
and decided to check it, just for the hell of it. to my delight, it worked, i quickly created a character, ran around the solo training for a bit to get a feel for the controls, then played two quick team deathmatch rounds. it was only about 10 minutes with the game, but i enjoyed it. i can't wait to get home and really sit down with it and give it some time. it looks GREAT on an HDTV. MGO should tide me over until GTAIV hits next Tuesday.
can anybody respond so that we can verify if they are blocking IP's If you have the Beta code but is outside US are you a able to connect? If you ahve the Beta code and is in the US are you still NOT able to connect?
Got the europe download and still can't get in. EDIT: So what the hell, they say it's online and people still can't get in! What the hell did i pre-order for!? 9 digit codes and shyt, late ass beta starts, and now people still can't play the damn thing. WTF YO!?!!!
I know some people who downloaded MGO in Europe PSN but are outside europe are able to play the game.
Maybe if you downloaded the UK beta you just have to remember to sign in under your UK account before playing the game.
tried that and it still don't work but thanks for giving me hope lol! Crys in the corner!
All i have to say. Sniping Grexcelent CQC...could improve Lower caliber weapons great. Grenades need more damage but great to get people out of cover. Traps... Grexelent Mgs taste... Pure awesomness Perks..Excelent need to see the them once upgraded to become grexelent. Greysturm looks for a battle would anyone challenge him...
You can kiss my @#^ silly mutha%^&*?!. Konami too the CO#*$($^%*!!! All this watin for [email protected]#$, [email protected]##$# [email protected]#)$*&!! WHERE IS MY DAMN BETA CODE!!! Europe one is not working! F*@&!!!!
This game rocks you sure are missing out and being just a teaser for what mgs4 is gonna bring be ready to poop in your pants...
I'm addicted to the game, and my character looks badass by the way. P.S. My character is the only black guy online in all the matches I've played lol.
OMG I love this game!!!!! WOOOOT, the wait was worth it
This game sucks!!! Online play is definetly not MGS's strong point. I got on for about an 1hr and boy is it lame. Graphics arent anything special. Stealth element isn't really fleshed out at all *sigh* Can't beleive this is what I've been waiting for... Tag: RANGERDANGER!
That didn't take long. You didn't even like all of the customizations options available concerning oh I don't know EVERYTHING?! I won't argue with you because your opinion is just that, yours. But you should give it another chance. Do you play COD4 a lot? I only ask because I'm guessing that a lot of COD4 fanatics really won't like this game due to the pacing alone.
it's very hard. I never played any of the Metal Gears. The control scheme is wacky. I kept getting killed real easy and there is way too much to do in the game. Holding L1 and then pressing R1 to shoot makes no sense to me and is an example of everything being complicated
In fact, I'm trying to think of a better way to map it out. If anything, they need to get rid of having the square button swith out of auto-aim alone. That's a really big waste of a button if you ask me. Especially when it takes two to shoot. The only reason I can imagine it's like this is because of being able to switch between third and first-person though.
I actually loved the controls and was able to do pretty good. It is weird that the  button is used only for auto aim but I got used to it. Oh and By the way...MANCANNON!
that was on my team today, I'm really bad at all forms of shooting games. Next time I'll have a mic on so everyone can direct me to the corner I need to be in to not get in the way :)
Got in. Won't be playing till after work though.
I still can not get on! Mother ****er! Still getting Unable to connect to server bs! Anyone else in the usa getting this problem? I downloaded it from the Europe store and updated it in the us store. Anyone else getting on by doing the same that I did? This makes me hate my PS3!

Ah yes, been playing for a couple of hours. It got addictive fast. Love it.
Took awhile to get used to the controls, but now that I have found my groove and I am starting to kick a** on it. It is a freaking awesome beta/game (IMHO) with a lot of hiding spots and levels to search. Oh, yeah.....Freaking love the man cannon!!! You can fly past your enemy and take them out from behind. Too cool. See you on there PSN ID and Game ID: REMF
Hey, I just got on today and played a bit before going back to the university; game rocks of course, but CQC is difficult with a capital "D." It's easy enough against the dummies, but real opponents are really hard, don't see why they couldn't have made that part slightly more fluid, but oh well. gamer id: whaticando-_1. send me a message if you wanna swap info or play together.
Keeps telling me servers are down for maintenance or some such. anyone else getting this?
