In the latest of a string of online gaming-related disasters for Konami, the Japanese company has admitted it currently has "no permanent solution" to ongoing problems with the Metal Gear Online servers
Yep, Konami told us that 2 days ago :( http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News...
is that in the future, they should use the PSN instead of trying to be greedy but by using their own servers to sell their DLC.
If Valve said the same thing about PS3 Orange Box: "Valve are lazy developers"
Led by a fat, ignorant, self-obsessed slob who insults everything that isn't made primarily of sugar!
Bring it to PSN and I will definitely buy along with that codec pack.
anything PS3 that doesn't go as planned is a DISASTER. Xbox live crashes over the holiday break and its a technical issue. I own both systems and I still see bias. I played MGO and havent had any issues yet...except for the lame need to create a konami ID. No lamer than a "windows live" ID. Can someone who played the expansion tell me what the disaster is?
It took 6 hours for me to get access to it, all because Konami run it through their own system rather than PSN and it's unacceptable. It is a disaster, but it's not a fault of Sony or PSN, it's Konami. The game servers are fine, the game runs fine, but the store and any site based access just doesn't have the capacity to deal with a game as popular as MGO. There's absolutely no reason why the log-in is separate from PSN or they have their own http based store.
Stupid [email protected] it to the PSN! KONAMI ARE A BUNCH OF SEISSUP…AND HIDEO IS THE ONE GINKCUF THEM IN THE ONLY HOLE REAL GOOD LETTING THIS BULLSH!T CARRY ON! MR PERFECTIONIST…MY @SS!
--->>> OPEAN ZONE --->>> ( "_")
...USE PSN SERVERS! Problem solved.
ask microsoft for help xP
by far the worst part of MGO is the sign up ...
I've heard about it. Konami needs to get it together. :/
See, what have I been telling you Sony fanboys for the last month??? Sonys online structure Suckssssssssssssssssssssssssss s Asssssssssss. Why do you think Namco brought Ace Combat 6 which was also a Sony exclusive over to the 360 and not the POS3 HUH??? because they wanted to implement a solid multi player gaming expierence and the only next gen console that could provide that was the 360. What Im starting to realize now is that sony gamers truly havent evolved or havent expierenced true online gaming. I dont thinks its any of your faults either. Actually its sonys fault but thats another issue. The thing is your all just offline platform gamers. I mean all the games you cherish and think are the best of all franchises are just typical platform games. So its none of your faults. Its truly Sonys fault for not getting a online strategy earlier in the days of the ps2. If they would of done their homework last generation the POS3 would be neck in neck with the 360. dont worry though because after the Konami guys are done ripping their hair out and taking aspirin for the big headaches because of this MGS4 online debaucle is causing them, They wont have to worry about these kind of problems with 360 build thats for sure it will run silky smooth trust me. yeah thats right fanboys I didnt stutter a 360 build!!!
Maybe if you calmed down for a minute, you could realize that Konami's having trouble with their online network. They completely bypassed PSN. They do this with every title, and both PS3 and 360 owners hate it.
heres a solution Konami, instead of making us use these stupid konami servers, let us use our PSN ID, and integrate MGO with the PSN. its not that hard.
Konami needs to stop milking us with character slots and minor expansions. Transfer this to PSN, enough with the Konami ID already. Make it free, we already bought your game, now treat your fans with some respect and give us free goodies, not lame camo. Some of you may disagree, but the way MGO is set up right now feels very fickle and disorganized.
Nothing much is gonna be free these days. COD4 didn't have any free dlc did it?
They did for the pc version.
N it suuucksss on many ways firt becuz is not free to create more than one caracter 2 because it to slow to get in a game n play it take way to long. 3rd becuz I can't change guns whit one botton. N for online that verry important n the fps view suck is too slow n not natural felling 4 the maps sucks but the game is good n the online sometimes is fun but not great I guess. I have to tray sucom ps3 when it comes out I hope is good
Please, stay in school...
make it 360 exlusive even if its donsent look that good
So many things wrong with those few words, I don't even know where to begin.
live wins again......flame on
Lol this has nothing to do with live you scum bag lmfao.
I think Konami made a big, big mistake keeping MGO almost separate from the PSN. You can just tell, they have no clue, sadly, how to run an online game. And then they have the lack of common sense to add a "headshots only mode" when the game is already headshots or GTFO. Lame. MGS4 is an amazing title, but MGO is so beyond flawed I'm just not bothering with it.
with the problems that came up with pro evo 08 this was not expected??
F that when is my suikoden coming?! >:( of course it will be another fine addiction on the 360
Suikoden won't be comming to your firebox, since you xbutts don't buy jrpgs haha. Anyways, it has to with Konami's servers, not psn. Stop blaming psn for every problem.
yeah just like FF M I RITE? is that why we have more rpgs than you droids?
There best and obvious course of action would be to integrate it into PSN. Shoulda did that the first time.
No problems though right droids.....none whatsoever..... @droid so the online game does not come with mgs4..its a incomplete game if you cant play online...gaylo 4 has multiplayer and a single player game......please why dont you stick your head farther up your ass...
Lol There's Metal Gear Solid 4 and Metal Gear Online, take a hike retard.
spin much??? snukaman?
yeah cause you know..game of the year should always be based solely on multiplayer /sarcasm
single AND multiplayer if it has it on the game.and mgs4 does have both right.....but hey..it shouldn't matter to you droids if theres not much people playing your game of the year right....same sh*t with unreal tournament.....hilarious
Bioshock won game of the year and it doesn't have multilayer. I bet Snukadaman was one of the first to say a single player only game can still win goty last year.
I think its safe to say their attempt at creating an Outer Haven from PSN is a fiasco. In theory what Konami is doing is great for the industry, third party devs should be able to collect their own fees and operate independently from the main network. If done correctly it could lead to a Steam like version for the console world which could give the PSN a run for its money and encourage competition. Unfortunately Konami is not Valve, they have zero experience in setting up on an online shop and generally have no idea WTF they're doing while failing spectacularly. This is something better left to western devs, maybe Insomniac can pull it off.
really MGS4 is my best game ever ... but i am sad to say this .. the Japanese are the most [email protected] people when its about on-line ( PES08 + MGO ) plz konami just use the fukin PSN , and let your own server runs in the hell .
Well, $hit happens... It had a beta test and it ran into problems, then they were fixed, now this. Some things can't be foreseen unfortunately. Call of Duty 4 also had a beta test and when it was officially released it also had a lot of problems. Hope they sort it out soon. (Though why they didn't just use the PSN servers I'll never know....)
use PSN servers? hah! what PSN servers... the only server that developers can use are for logins... aside from that they have to fund and maintain their own hardware... so, this problem would still exist if they use Sony login servers....
If psn was up to par you people honestly think konami would not be using it..funny how when a game is multiplayer droids jump on and say its just as bad on xbox as it is on ps3.... http://www.videogamer.com/p... the reviewers had problems only on the ps3 version...old news but its always funny to read.
Sony's Playstation Network isn't set up like Live. Third party games online functions are the responsibility of the developer. Gamers are going from their PS3 to Konami's servers through the PSN. Basically users are handed off to the third party where there are no set rules or expectations. In this case, the PSN is working as designed. Obviously there are better ways this can be handled on the PS3 since most games work fine. First party games work the best since Sony has a hand in what happens with the online portion and a hand off isn't needed. The biggest reason third parties are doing online on their own is to offset costs. Since online is free with the PS3, devs foot the bill for their online presence. Microtransactions are how they offset their costs for the servers. This is where the big difference between Live and PSN are. With Live, users pay for the routine day to day online gaming by using Live servers which are used to connect players and choose hosts among other things. It is also integrated with the Xbox 360 OS so functions such as massaging, in game access to the UI, and in game music work effortlessly. This is also how achievements are tracked. The online infrastructure is set up and fixed for devs which makes online integration easier also. Instead of needing microtransactions to pay for online, devs have a business model they can use to add value to gamers and to developers with DLC. Online play for the PS3 is not free. Someone always pays for it. Either the dev absorbs the costs, Sony takes care of it through matching gamers up on a peer to peer basis, or microtransactions become the norm. Once advertising hits full swing hopefully that will take off some of the burden and create a better online experience. -Death
Well that sucks... Resistance and Warhawk still work.
REDZEV you really must start doing ure research before you go shooting your mouth off. Konami run thier game on thier own servers and thier store for downloads also. They dont put em up for download on PSN. So as usual you make ure self look stupid and tbh does anyone really care what you think ? Im a PS3 owner and i have had no problems with playing online since ive had one. My brother owns a XBOX360 and online is also good. Only difference i can see PS3 = play for free XBOX360 = Paying to play online nuff sed. And MGS4 on the 360 in ure dreams maybe one day ull wake up.
Whats up Darktittysxxx. I was just wondering are you a gambling man or woman??? Because Im willing to bet you and any Sony Fanboy your whole allowance and piggybank money that my prediction is 100% correct. trust me on this darktitty Im always right read my recent posts as of E3 and you will be surprise. MARK MY WORDS!!!
um.....to you people saying psn sucks becuase of this....its not on the psn wich is why its having problems.
As much as I like it, I have so many other titles to play that this wouldn't bother me a bit. Has this really been a huge issue? What are peoples experiences here?
I downloaded new 1.10 upgrade with no problems and thought the problems had been resolved, but then I tried to get the paid content after work at 11pm, I was up until 5am before I got it. And that's unacceptable. What should be a 30 second job took 6 hours.
This is for the people who download the content or what? i played yesterday and i didn't have any single problem.
@dro Thanx for adding animation...sure Hideo will use that for his future game... MGO ONLINE-KCOC EATER (directed by Kojima) --->>> OPEAN ZONE --->>> ( "_") Im done fighting with konami...no more mgo for me.
LOL im male and i dont have a piggybank or allowance im 36 this year. Why do most people presume everyone that posts on here is a teenager/kid ?
Wazup guyz...mad boy mangel inda house! Konami's not gonna listen to us...PERIOD! they probally reading all the complaints and thinking...... "say with japanese accent"...nor nor,what this people talk about...mgo work fine...what PSN?got words wrong- you mean Nintendo Portable Station.
