PS Blog: Don't worry MGO is not a Paid Subscription service

50°
333w ago - The US PS Blog has revealed the full details of the new map for MGO and the new gametype rule, Sneaking Mission.

Also, they have clarified that "MGO is not a paid subscription service, you can play online totally free right out of the box - we know some of you thought there might be some payment because of the last step of Konami ID registration, but that is to confirm your identity for future potential microtransaction content updates (you don't have to register any payment info right now anyhow)."

To quote: Hi all! Welcome back to Metal Gear Mondays! It's certainly been a busy week, and once again, we'd like to take a second to thank you for all the great compliments and feedback from our previous installments - and of course, your enthusiasm for all that is Metal Gear!

We'll pick up where we left off ... As many of you know, gameplay of the Metal Gear Online Beta for the PLAYSTATION 3 is well underway as of the time of this post - please see the last bunch of Metal Gear PS Blog posts for full details on the Metal Gear Online Beta program and content to date.

Press Release:

The return of Bishi Bashi Special! Classic Konami PSOne title marks publisher's first download release via PlayStation Network in Europe Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has released its first title available via Sony's PlayStation Network download store in the form of PSOne classic, Bishi Bashi Special.





Originally released in 2000, Bishi Bashi Special is the definitive party game, and comprises over 80 fun mini-games - each madder than the last. Converted from two of Konami's Japanese arcade machines - Super Bishi Bashi and Hyper Bishi Bashi - the compilation is designed to test the player's reactions, timing and stamina.

As the name suggests, some involve simply bashing the controller buttons as quickly as possible, while others require pixel-perfect movement and extreme hand-eye coordination. All, however, are tremendous fun and doubly so when played against a friend.

The events go by such names as Juggler Panic, Burger Girl, Ladder of...

335w ago - According to the NPD figures which were released today, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has officially sold over 9 Million copies worldwide since it's release!

In addition, the Variety Map Pack we recently released on Xbox Live and soon to be released on PS3 in a week; has broke Xbox Live Marketplace records pulling down over 1 Million downloads within it's first 9 days. Not to mention pulling down Xbox Live Marketplace in the process when it launched.

Some cool numbers we pulled recently to see just how much gameplay that actually is, shows that Xbox LIVE members played more than 30 million sessions and logged over 30 million hours of gameplay!! We're talking 1.9 billion minutes logged in the first 9 days!!

If you don't have the Variety Map Pack yet it's currently available on Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 MS Points and will be hitting the PSN store starting April 24th (US) or May 4th (EU) for $9.99 and includes four new multiplayer maps.

I knew we had a huge loyal community and it's always cool to pull specific numbers to quantify just HOW large it actually is. Also, don't forget tomorrow night is the Xbox LIVE Fire Weekend for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare where you can play with the team here at Infinity Ward and myself from 3 - 6 pm PST (6 - 9 pm EST) as well...
