Guess I'll have to pop in the MGS4 coaster and give it a try. I've been holding off till I played through all of the HD collection.
I tried to re-download the online game since I got a new PS3 and it download, I left for an hour and came back and it still didn't download, this was a fun game, maybe when they make Rising, it'll have multiplayer built in the disc, downloading sucks
NOOOOOOO!!! The last time I tried to get online it wouldn't let me onto the server for some reason but it was a blast having a different type of online shooting based combat, as opposed to the run and gun style of most shooters.
Welp it's time to move on folks. Nothing to see here. *hides underneath cardboard box*
I actually loved this game
Ah this is such a bummer. I really did enjoy this multiplayer though it was so frustrating at times.
It's a shame. I had a lot of fun in it, even if I did suck. It's really hard to get into, what with the steep learning curve and all that.
although im not a fan of the playstation i do feel sorry for those gamers. it reminds me of when the shut down the halo 2 servers.
"Sigh" too bad I really love the online. It was so different from other online shooter.......... WTF!!! WHYYYY KONAMI!!! THIS IS HORSES**T, A*SF**K, CRAP, MONKEYBALSS,BUTTMUNCH.............. Ok I feel better XP
That sucks, I've been super procrastinating on getting a PS3 and now I'll probably never get a chance to play this
This is dissapointing. It was really fun.
wow! i was gonna buy mgs4 again to play online but with konami's news! changes everything! :P
Well everything comes to an end, but i wonder just how many people are sincerly disappointed?
Well that stinks. I really like MGSONLINE and play it every so often still. Oh well, hopefully Revengance will have some kind of multiplayer and theirs always peacewalker online.
So if they re-release this in the future, will the multiplayer be brought back?
I was actually wondering how much longer the online service would last a couple days ago. Pretty sad to see it's coming to an end, but it was gonna happen sooner or later. I haven't played in almost a year, but I use to be addicted to MGO and couldn't stop playing it at one time. Really loved the gameplay and community even though there were parts of MGO that were frustrating.
I actually really liked MGO...I probably have over 100 hours on it which is rare for me on multiplayer games the Snake mode was genius and I loved being snake and searching for him when I wasnt.....Sad that its going but if they released a stand alone MGO I would buy it in a second
NO!!!!!! MGO NO!!!!! :(. like the way of RE:Outbreak. Bout to play the hell out of this now before it ends.
