Some good and bad news for Metal Gear fans.
WIth the fallout betweem Konami and Kojima I wonder how long Konami will host the MGO servers. I have little faith that they will deploy patches and updates in good time, or host the online servers beyond say... 2 years?
Damn that steam 59.99$ Phantom pain + GZ. I already have GZ. Cant i get it cheaper ?
It will be coming with GTX cards expect lower prices real quick and if the game is a global key expect lower prices even quicker.
isn't Ground Zero's going to be in MGSV anyway ? i'm sure its like the very first chapter.
Nope, they're two separate games ;)

MGO better have a beta then
Why? Only really reason is to stress test the servers. Granted it sucks mgo won't release right away. Just gives everyone time to play single player. Seems similar to what Rockstar did with GTA
Let's just hope they release it fully and not the Rockstar way.
MGO2 had a beta i dont see why not
Awesome news for PC users! No need to wait for 2 weeks now :), so freakin awesome. In a way I think it's good that they don't rush MGO, and I can focus better on single player first now.
Not exactly, the online portion is delayed for console and PC. Console until October 6th...and who knows if they won't push it back further... and the PC version until January... again maybe further. So for consoles, it's a ~five week multiplayer delay. For PC, it's a single player 2 weeks earlier, but multiplayer about a 3 months delay...and again those delays might end up being longer since they had to delay them to begin with. I wouldn't say that's good news.
Well I play MGS mainly for the story... I would jump into MGO after weeks/months of single player and MB MP. So I think it's good that it dont release at the same time. And no need for PC people to struggle hiding for 2 weeks because of spoilers. It can't be delayed so horribly like with GTAV, lol.
by the time they release the online most people will have moved onto other games. you do know how packed October is right ?
Actually many will be playing TPP for a long time, I'm sure of that.
Remember when we were promised GTA Online in October...and didn't get on until a month later
Just a theory, dont take my words as fact, but I'm presuming that the online could have been released same day, but at a sales perspective if mgo is going to tank hard, and the single player is epic as always, konami is wanting the reviews of the game to reflect on the sp portion. And I remember alot of mgo players who played for months never touching the single player back on MGS4. I hope im dead wrong but I have a feeling mgo this time around isn't going to be anything like the mgo of the past.
Don't you say that. *wipes away tear* Don't you dare say that! *cries*
DAMN IT!! I want my MGO now! *mumble* make me wait another month *mumble* bastards *mumble*
Oh god I needs my MGO fix. I've been deprived since 2012
Good news for pc players
I should be upset that MGO is delayed but I'm pretty happy because I can play SP and won't jump into the MP with people high ranked. Sept 1st will be the start of my two week vacation, for this game only.
