I loved that game, aside from the insanely long update downloads that plagued it every time I logged on, it was incredibly fun, never before (or after) have I been able to pair up with a group of strangers and cooperate so efficiently.
way to early for this to happen
damn, just bought mgs4 today! I know. Im super late.
i just started playing this online. i really enjoyed it. i am very disappointed...
I should make sure to check out the online play a few more times before it shuts down.
maaaan this news i HATE! ive enjoyed it for so many years now.
Even though Metal Gear Online wasn't the greatest online game, it was definitely unique and good in it's own way. It certainly was addicting. This is sad.
Could never find anyone online, anyway. :/
That sucks I had some great times with MGO a few years ago I will miss it....it was truly a unique experience and I hope the next MGS has multiplayer as well(as long as they lose that freakin Konami ID)
I wonder how many people still played it.
I've never even heard of this...
Ghost Recon borrowed a lot from MGO, I'm sad to see it go. (Yes, that rhyme was on purpose)
is some people gonna be mad?
They might be closing them to save money to make the MGS Rising online up and running.
