METAL GEAR MONDAYS! MGO Beta Finished

60 0

Hi all!

As many of you know, the MGO Beta came to a close late last night, and we would like to extend our most sincere thanks to all of you who participated, for your time and efforts to play and give us feedback on MGO. We had a great time, and we hope you did too!

Last Wednesday as announced here on the PS Blog, before the end of the MGO Beta we sent out a challenge to the top ranked clans in the MGO Beta to play vs our Kojima Productions/Konami team. Many thanks to the clans who participated, and all of the clans that wrote in to try to play. We truly wish we could spend all day playing, and fit everybody in, but we had very limited time – and we appreciate your patience and understanding. If you enjoyed playing, would have liked to participate, or would love more organized MGO competitions in any case, fret not – this is only the tip of the iceberg, and we have lots planned following the launch of MGS4/MGO…

I would like to extend a special thanks to the clan leaders who quickly rushed to organize and confirm their rosters for the competition: Nozdeuce of NeoGaf, Paradox Bat of W.O.L.F., THE-BIGGER-BOSS of Venom, Solid Tanuki of CheapAssGamer, and SwiftFox of SpecialOpsGroup – and, once again, all the clan leaders I chatted with who were interested to play.

Every match was an absolute blast for us to play, and for the most part, every round was extremely close. We had an amazing time chatting and playing, everyone was incredibly skilled, and really nice. NeoGaf clan member Freeman did a great job capturing and posting some videos from the NeoGaf vs KP/Konami match. Freeman has a tremendous opening from our first round of the first match, quickly laying waste to a few of our KP/Konami team members…

You can catch Freeman’s other video from the match here, where extensive use of Night Vision is employed.

Full match results after the jump.

Next, I’d like to call out that GameTrailers has posted the first installment of their incredible Metal Gear video retrospective. Be warned, it covers the whole series history in extreme detail, and contains MAJOR SPOILERS!

Lastly, in case you didn’t know, Wednesday night is Konami’s “Gamer’s Night” in SF – an event where we invite the press to come and check out Konami’s product lineup. There will be many long awaited and surprise announcements, special guests, and much more. Stay tuned right here on the PS Blog and at Konami.com!!!

    COD4 has not ingame messages, so a headset is a must.
    MGO has ingame messages (with the keyboard) and with the preset messaes(wich i love).
    So a headset is not so important.
    By the way MGO played with real team work is awesome.
    Cheers

  • The Gun Metal PS3 bundle –
    Hopefully something will be mentioned at the Konami Gamer’s Night

  • Great Beta thanks for making is available, KONAMI.

    This was the first game in a long time that actually hooked me and was on my mind to play. I don’t play too much online shooters because they just don’t do it for me unless I’m with friends but MGO was great. I look forward to playing it again probably after playing MGS4 sessions haha…

  • The Beta looked great and played great. I just hated the respawning and dying right away. I’ve read thats been a issue with alot of people. I would love to be able to sprint but thats just a wish on my part.

  • Yah, sprinting would be nice.

    Kind of kills the realism when someone starts shooting you in the back and your character can only just walk slowly away.

  • Hey does any one know if there is going to be a version of the PS3 bundle that will include the the limited edition of MGS4.

  • so how bout that gamer’s night surprise info eh?

  • Metal Gear 40GB Gunmetal PLAYSTATION 3 pre-order details from Konami are in!
    Available for pre-order on May 19th from Konami.com!

  • Anyone know what happened at Konami’s Gamer night in SF? Did they released any more details about the bundle? Enough already they have had us on the edge of our seats for ever!!!!!!!! How much longer?!?! I am going nuts over here!! I want to make sure I get one!

  • I would have enjoyed it if they had provided a better tutorial. not everybody has played a Metal gear game.
