@post 2

well any way
question and if u can please answer
1. Will we still be using the konami ID for MGO, and if so why cant we just use our PSN ID?
2.Are you playing MGS$ as we comment
3. If the answer to above was yes then does the game rock ?
4. Do we still need to download a patch for MGO?
5. I know its to soon to ask but when do you think we can expect downloadable contents for MGS$/MGO?
thx if you reply

I recall reading at the last MGS4 event that Sony had plans to have a 3 day long PSN content update for MGS4. Do you happen to know anything further on this?


+ Biohazard on June 9th, 2008 at 6:37 pm said:

+ FeaturePreacher on June 9th, 2008 at 6:50 pm said:

The U.S. version of the mgs4 site continues to redirect you to the age verification page. Best to use the U.K. version of the site.


+ VenomProject on June 9th, 2008 at 7:03 pm said:

David Hayter?! *High pitched fanboy scream*

If I lived in LA I would so be there…I’d be like:

“Do it…Please?”

David: “Fine but you have to promise me that you’ll leave me alone…”

“Yeah, I swear to God.”

David: “*Sigh*….*puts finger on ear* This is Snake.”



+ thingg on June 9th, 2008 at 7:07 pm said:

The hard reality: United States, population: 305 million. Canada, population: 33 million. Number of stops for kojima: 2. Sorry dude.


+ AwRy108 on June 9th, 2008 at 7:29 pm said:

Can I read / write messages from my Friends List while in game? If not, then epic FAIL.

Every day that goes by that SONY doesn’t provide the community-building features that PS3 needs (aka. total in-game Friends List access, voice messaging, etc.) is one more nail in the PS3’s coffin. How many more nails until it’s completely shut, SONY?

I’m psyched for MGS4 but, at the same time, I wish it was on a console that had a more complete feature set–I’m tired of gaming on a box of “future potential”.


+ diablo103 on June 9th, 2008 at 7:30 pm said:

i cant waite for this game


+ djchayan on June 9th, 2008 at 7:47 pm said:

wow Thanks a lot will try to get to the New York event…wish me luck!!


+ rojo7 on June 9th, 2008 at 7:47 pm said:

i must say that this metal gear mondays is great
cuz its 2 days for mgs4


+ THATPSPGUY on June 9th, 2008 at 7:50 pm said:

The most FUNNY THING ABOUT THIS IS, the fact that I will have it before you all. You see where I live is the place that hits Midnight First in the whole of North America. So while everyone is waiting, like GTA IV launch, I’ll be at home playing. lolz it’s kinda sad that Sony never does an official launch or anyone for that fact, from the official City that starts the new day first. My city. google it to find out. All the way East. This is the game most have been waiting for a long long time.
great Job Folks, I bet it will blow our minds. Fanboys and Fangirls the world over will be in Orgasmic Gaming Heaven. AM I not right?
p.s. I can’t wait to go online again.
See you in the games….


+ lyfestory on June 9th, 2008 at 7:53 pm said:

LA, SF, and NYC represent a world tour??

its really disappointing that Chicago is never properly represented by anyone.. 2 locations on the west coast, but no chicago..?? sad, indeed..

i’ll get my game on Friday.. thanks..


+ jazzagers on June 9th, 2008 at 7:56 pm said:

Any word on what the numbers are gonna be like for the 80 GB bundle are gonna be, I don’t want to wait around for weeks because I cant snag one at launch.


+ Toast on June 9th, 2008 at 8:06 pm said:


*begins chanting metal gear*

Metal Gear!
Metal Gear!
Metal Gear!
Metal Gear!


+ erasing_rain on June 9th, 2008 at 8:10 pm said:

No *sniff* more *sniff* Metal Gear Mondays… That is the sadest news I’ve heard all week. I can’t wait for Metal Gear but I always looked forward to Monday blogs. Oh well I’m sure you guys will keep us posted about MGO goings ons. :^)


+ SonofUgly on June 9th, 2008 at 8:13 pm said:

So will MGS4 be coming out w/ the new update.
the one w/ in game xmb?


+ erico316 on June 9th, 2008 at 8:22 pm said:

@jazzagers i believe the mgs4 bundle is limited and once they sell out of the 80 gig that its for mgs4 bundle.
its not a bundle for good.not i may be wrong so if i am i say sorry in advance


+ Jeigh on June 9th, 2008 at 8:29 pm said:

You guys are already looking to score major with this title, though I’m somewhat dumbfounded as to why this isn’t plastered all over the place, and playing every single commercial break. After all, this thing is massive. Still, you’ve got to be pretty happy with the fact that you crashed :P

Easily going to be the PS3 Best Seller thus far within a month, maybe two. Be proud. :D


+ MGSMerc on June 9th, 2008 at 8:44 pm said:

Please release Metal Gear Solid on the US PSN Store. Please.


+ cmargary on June 9th, 2008 at 8:50 pm said:


For the people that doesn’t know MGS is a dual layer Blu-Ray disc and how there will be in the PSN? a 50GB game in the PSN… who will want to download it with the infamous DMR of sony?


+ K2016 on June 9th, 2008 at 8:59 pm said:

Wow… Those are a lot of codes….
Anyways, I got a question, Do I have to have played Metal Gear Solid before to play this game & enjoy it? I am a new PlayStation 3 owner, and new played any consoles before, just PC. So my friend told me to get MGS 2 & 3 to understand the story. Is it required?

Anyways, why two west coast that are very close to each other? How about southern & middle US? Canada?


+ K2016 on June 9th, 2008 at 9:01 pm said:

@ cmargary
Are you serious? Dual layer? 50GB?? Wow! That would be 3 weeks of downloading~ lol!

*Sorry for the double post*


+ NarutoSoul on June 9th, 2008 at 9:02 pm said:

Thanks for not coming to Florida, we don’t like special events or signings… On a more positive, less sarcastic note: WOO! CAN’T WAIT TO PLAY SOME MGS4!!!!!!!
