Konami killed Metal gear. Should have left Kojima to do it.

Chester Bennington3567d ago

I think that they didn't kill it, but just made it complicated for Metal Gear Online.

Bubble Buddy3567d ago

Yeah, I meant they made MGO so hard to work with. Why couldn't they just use PSN accounts instead of having to make a new profile. It's weird. :S.


As much as i love MGS4 single player i must admit the online really sucked.I dont think this will make me want to go online with MGS4 when i have killzone2 round the corner.I was in the beta and i loved it.

MAR-TYR-DOM3567d ago

your a fool if you bought mgs4 expecting greatness from the online.
That is not what mgs franchise about.

LeonSKennedy4Life3567d ago

The be honest with you guys...Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops had amazing online.

I agree, the single player storyline is why 99% of people bought the game. The online could have been great, but like someone else said,

-They should have utilized the PSN for downloads and for signing into the game.
-There are way too many things on the screen, not to mention how half the screen gets taken up when people keep posting stupid messages.
-The ranking system is terrible and unfair.
-Because of the hastle of buying map packs from the Konami store, most people don't bother to buy and play the new maps.
-The online interface is more complicated then it really needs to be.

As a long time fan of the online mode(mgs3: subsistence) I can't wait for this.

This sounds great for anyone still playing MGO or anyone interested in playing it..... but I have a feeling that once Killzone 2 comes out, most other PS3 game Servers are going to be pretty dry for a while.

Nathan Drake3567d ago (Edited 3567d ago )

I disagree,they made the Online portion of the game slightly complicated to get into,but they didn't kill the MGS franchise.

Mozilla893567d ago

I don't have MGS4 but I played the demo for MGO and it was really fun...when I could connect that is. In the demo though you can play using your PSN account which made it a lot more streamlined from what I hear. I don't know who thought having a separate profile would be a good idea.

Bubble Buddy3565d ago

Yeah Drake I meant MGO, my bad -_-. It was just too complicated to work. They should have used PSN just like every other game does.
