MGS4 servers were closed after only 4 years, by the way https://www.metalgearinform...

Don't remind me, my favourite online game of all time :(

Giblet_Head818d ago

It's been brought back with RPCS3, if you're curious to get back into it.

I played this game recently. This is a problem because infiltrating online bases is by FAR the best way to get money.

During the actual game i made a few mill doing story missions, and procuring equipment, but with the online wallet, I had 100m+ in a few hours.

Not to mention you'd need to create online FOBs to max your gear.

Was hoping there would be a next gen patch to make the idroid a little less laggy. Really, a masterpiece of a game.

And that's why online elements in single player games will never be welcomed by me

Remember that the services for Phantom Pain on Xbox One, PS4 and PC are still going to be online. But it is only a matter of time, I suppose.

Are there any trophies or achievements tied to online?

Dark_Overlord818d ago

Actually 3, Intruder, Deterrence and Disarmament. You have to connect to the online to finish building the Nuke and get the trophy, meaning you can't disarm it either without online.

I still need to play these games. I have the PS3 versions

franwex818d ago

The online component is really helpful with online connectivity. You get minerals and stuff while you sleep to build up your base.

MetroidFREAK21818d ago

I don't think I'll get to it before the online service is shut down

Now we'll have to see how much the Master Collection will add to those numbers.

Too bad it was a lazy release. They could've updated the visuals and everything. Missed opportunity.

Stanjara25d ago

...and yet, they couldn't give more respect and effort into the collection.
What a terrible company.

Minute Man 72125d ago (Edited 25d ago )

Are they counting every game?

Edit: they did

Nyxus25d ago

Yes, these are total lifetime sales of the entire series.

ApocalypseShadow25d ago

.... mostly with the help of PlayStation.

Get that Sony tramp stamp while you're at it. No one asked
