GOONL!NE: Fed up of Konami ID's? Well, be fed up no more, the ID's are gone, starting with the release of Pro Evolution Soccer 2010.
It`s probably for the best Konami, cause it was stupid.
lol, what a stupid idea to begin with good to know it's gone
Thank you god. Still sux that you have to use it for MGO...
::Heavens shines down, Angels sing in joyous song:: Thank God indeed.... ::does Tiger Woods fist pump::
So it won't take 3 hours to update that damn MGO >=/. I hate their DL servers. Hell, their matchmaking takes 5-10 mins for me. I have NAT Type 1 btw...
@1.1 Kojima listens... Thank you Kojima!
I'm surprised it took them so long to realise how much the whole system sucks. MGO would be much better, and played much more, without them
Thank god, that was one of the big downfalls to MGO.
Maybe now I'll try to get back into MGO. Just signing into the game to play for a little while was such a hassle.
KICKAS* ! best move from konami since founding ;-)
Should be retroactive for MGO =[
I wish, then I might actually play it. The whole having to log into anther site just to play 1 game out of all the hundreds of PS3 games was too much for me. Yea, I'm a lazy gamer, but thus is the life that the PSN has spoiled me to. Come on Konami, integrate MGO into the PSN so I can play with/against my friends. Some of them really need to be taken down Snake style.
Same. Only reason i don't play it is, because liek that guy ^^ i can't be bothered with two different systems. In fact i don't even know what my login details are for Konami
Maybe PSN would fix that disgusting lag! That's the main reason I stopped playing it! A dude comes around the corner, so you shoot him, but you were dead before you even saw him!
Oh man for a second I thought this would include MGO stuff, even though I don't really play it much anymore I'd still be mad if they got rid of them like that. I mean you never know I may pick it up again!
saying its too late to change it for older games (MGO) is saddening. sometimes i want to play MGO but i dont remember my password. by the time i go to the site to change i just give up and play another game.
"sometimes i want to play MGO but i dont remember my password. by the time i go to the site to change i just give up and play another game." LOL
Exactly what I did.
But what other Konami games besides MGO & PES should I look out for?
thank f<<< for common sense, now get mgo on psn and use more common sense.
I always thought the Konami ID was a way of letting Kojima do it solely for the PS3, and make some extra money out of it.
the whole konami id thing i had a nightmare with it. i love mgs4 but rarely play mgo because of all the konami grief. if they had put mgo on psn i bet many more poeple would be playing it now, me for one.
They wanted you the consumer to pay them directly without using the PSN store.
like finaly man the idea in itself is stupid at least it is nice to see good news for gamers from time to time
I just wish MGO had those removed
I never thought MGO's IDs were complicated to begin with. I just don't like the servers that they use. Also, lol at the admins/mods taking my bubbles (unless it was a fanboy with a bunch of free time; mostly like a xbot). I have a feeling it was the admins that were butthurt over me approving the beastility story about hhg. lol http://www.n4g.com/events_e... I mean come on, that honestly looked like it had some real info but it failed because people only love the false garbage from hiphopgarbageshow. I think maybe the link was wrong but they could've fixed that as it seems like that was legit news.
Thank god. Konami ID's only hurt the MGO experience.
or you could have done like me and waited forever to get a chance to create a konami id. lol this is good news, and ABOUT TIME.
it was a complete waste of time
the actual reason why i didn't play MGO is because i keep getting errors when dling. So i hope they sort out their servers issue, i'm sure i'm not the only one with this problem
The thing that is holding back MGO.
And I don't know why. Merging accounts is easy as pie. It could even be done using komami servers without user intervention, based on user log in. (Of course, confirmation is necessary)
That is, if this effects MGO (which i'm assuming it will). If so, then I wonder how the ID's will work on PSN. I mean what if you picked a MGO name that just happens to be the same name as someone's PSN name? Then again I think they will probably still be able to keep the MGO names the same even if they remove the login IDs. Now all we need is trophies (well we don't "need" them but it would be nice to have so you can show off your skills to other people).
Thats why I didn't even bother to go online with MGO. Konami, you lost big time this gen. PES is nowhere with online features compared to Fifa.
those who were fans of PES (LIKE MYSELF) know that it was konami ids and servers that ruined the experience. Online for PES wa garbage...its the reason why many people chose fifa 09 over PES09...it simply failed in the online section thanks to konami's crappy online service. I hope that its not just the ids but also the servers...as i dont see the point of using theirs.
WOW, thanks Amazing news God and great move Konami.
Day late and a Dollar short Konami ! They should of done this from day one , MS I bet MGSR begin on Xbox had something to do with it . Because has full control over there online service . Just my thought
Its a shame that they already ruined MGO with this crap. To bad they will not remove the IDs from MGO and maybe get people interested in it now.
If the ID system is what was holding you back from playing MGO Since June 12th 08. Geez. You do it once. It saves the info. Done. (It's even easier on PC) It doesn't really matter. Servers are still full everyday just like Warhawk. needz moar nubz .... i kid, i kid. EDIT: ... and if you do sign up (again). Just wait til your level 1 character runs up against a LV 17 MGO player. LoL!
For me it was the stupid lag on Konami servers; Unless that is just a game defect, but that seems umlikely considering the maker. Also, I will not put my credit card info on anything else and not being able to buy booster packs ends any long term commitments to an online game.
What if every publisher did this? Get an Activision ID for COD, get an EA id for Burnout (you do this but it is transparent to user, how it should be), get a UBISOFT id, get an Atari ID, get an ID id, etc etc. What makes Konami so special to ask for this?
almost as dumb as friend codes
so what does that mean for MGO? i hope they give that game a huge overhaul and support the PSN from now on.
that for MGO then i still wont play it ...hopefully they get rid of it ...so i can play MGO again
