April 21, 2008 // 2:47 am - According to their Web site, Konami has now postponed their Metal Gear Online Public BETA for gamers outside of Japan.


We would like to thank all players for their keen interest in taking part in the beta test.

However, we regret to inform you that due to extraordinary levels of traffic from all around the globe, we have been unable to run the service to the level we expected.

As a temporary measure, we will be deferring the start of the US public beta test until we are able to stabilize our server.

We would like to apologize for all inconveniences as well as confusion caused.

We would like to add that due to the above reasons, we will be making the following changes to the schedule:

1) Starting date: TBA. We will be making another announcement on 22/4/2008 23:00(PDT)
2) Beta Test closure: This will now be on 11/05/2008 at 24:00(PDT) rather than 06/05/2008 at 24:00(PDT)

IMPORTANT: Please note that your voucher code will only be valid up until 05/06/2008, so please make sure to register them by then.

I'm so disappointed and angry ! After the ID problems, now the delay...
What is Konami doing ? Do they know how many players were in front of their consoles last night ? For nothing...

The same in europe.. Start is TBA because of server problems

But now its possible to connect with your Game ID, so you can go to the options menu, there is nothing you do except set the screen and brightness and you are also able to switch the blood off there.
