Previous mgs games have been locked, as well as the mgo beta. So if your looking to pick up import a different countrys special edition you may wanna re consider because you will be stuck playing with strangers =/

Xakep5477d ago

But a stranger is a friend you haven't met yet, or possibly someone who wants to kill you, it's 50/50.

All past Metal Gear Online and BETA was Region locked. This is not surprising.

I am glad they region locked due to all people that imported from e-bay to have it before release date.

The problem is MGO is going to be sold as a separate product. Will gamers welcome a multiplayer lock? It def. makes it harder to find players in the middle of the morning when you have a gaming urge.

My COD4 multiplaying gaming sucks though because I'm red bar most of the time (I'm in asia) -- so this might be a good thing.

Same language version?

So does that mean (being an Englishman) that I'll still be able to play my US mates?
I have an Aussie mate too. Will I be able to play him?

And what about my friend in Germany? He's in a German language speaking country (obviously) but he is an English speaker?

MGS4 and MGO are only in English and Japanese as far as I know, so this is just langauge locked more then region lock. If you own the japanese version you can play on english language servers. If all the servers are in Japan any way there is no point in lock EU and NA to different servers
