Additional Characters Cost Money in Metal Gear Online

100°
341w ago - With Metal Gear Solid 4 now officially out in the wild, news surrounding the title is spreading fast. Lightning fast, in fact. According to various reports including NeoGAF member The Faceless Master, Metal Gear Online players are allowed to create one free character per console.

Want to create another character? You'll have to pay up, according to the game's login screen, which reads: "You are given the ability to register 1 character to this PS3 system, free of charge.

Register free character for this PS3 system with the GAME ID you are currently logged in under? (If you play the game with another GAME ID, you will have to purchase another character registration slot.)"

So, now we know why Konami stuck with using their own login system instead of directly integrating it with PSN. There's no word on how much additional characters cost... yet.
 

Wal-Mart confirms $100 PS3 gift card YES, even MGS4 bundle

200°
341w ago - We have confirmed with Wal-Mart Corporate Communications that the company is currently offering a $100 gift card this week with the purchase of any Blu-ray player.

This applies to all PS3s, including the Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 bundle available tomorrow. This re-confirms the information and documentation one of our reliable sources gave us two weeks ago.

After we made sure to ask about the MGS4 bundle this morning, Melissa O'Brien, a spokeswoman for Wal-Mart, told us, "Any Blu-ray player. Blu-ray. All of them."

She said that the deal is quite explicit in the Wal-Mart flyer for this week (an image of which we've placed after the break), and the deal is both online and in stores. We hope this clears up any confusion on the matter.

341w ago - This year E3 Media & Business Summit is coming back to Los Angeles, and its only a month away. E3 2008 will take place on July 15-17 and the heavy hitters will all be there and ready to blow your mind with the latest news, trailers, announcements, etc.

But what exactly can we expect at E3 2008, well lets take a look at the possibilities from each of the companies, Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo.

Microsoft Xbox 360

Microsoft has already revealed their 2008 Fall line up which definitely looks promising with titles such as Gears Of War 2, Fable 2, Banjo and Kazooie, Too Human, etc. But has Microsoft really showed us all, rumors say no, with all the talk of a Wii-mote like controller coming to the Xbox 360, Rare working on Killer Instinct, Lips?, we can definitely say that Microsoft will release the cats out of the bag at E3. But even then what do third party developers have to show off for the Xbox 360, last year Take-Two gave us Bioshock, can we expect a huge third party impact like that happening once again. No way to know until Microsoft hit center stage at E3 for their conference.

Nintendo Wii

"What we announce during E3 is gonna be fantastic. There's gonna be a big game for the holiday that the gamers (and expanded audience) will want," the words of the president...
