Images of Metal Gear Online

Metal Gear Online, an exclusive Playstation 3 title, is discovered once again with these very clear images and the an already known human catapult (!) catapult, my new favourite non-weapon of the game. The quality of what you will see after the jump is incredible.

Wasn't this confirmed to come with MGS4 and not as a standalone game?

Such beautiful orange filter, love it.

Can't wait for MGS4 thats for sure, but didn't the company say that MGO will be included with MGS4 as a starters pack, a demo, and if you want the whole thing you have to buy it seperetly.

That or you install MGO through MGS4 disc and then you buy it off PSN.

Anyway, I know some sort of a playable MGO will be cinluded with MGS4, so I can't wait. If it's very good, I might get it.

Lmao catapult looks awesome, but whats this? Metal Gear Online you have to buy!? And is not included with MGS4?!?

Thats possibly the craziest, biggest rip off i've ever heard of, imagine buying your Ghost Recons, Rainbow Sixes or C&Cs and have to pay for the online side of it, ridiculous, no matter how great a game looks or how well it pays, having to pay separately for the online side of it is just plane ol' stupid.

MGS4 will only have a starter pack, or a demo of sorts for Metal Gear Online, meaning if you want to experience the complete thing, you'll have to buy the standalone version.

It is obvious that the game is near Epsilon status...
Really cannot wait...

actually your half right. come launch you will be able to buy the starter pack. which has MGS4 in all its awesome glory, and a small 4 map multiplayer, in terms of modes and weapons it will be a full fledged multiplayer title, in terms of maps however, it will be limited. if you want more, you pay for them over the PSN as the create them. at least thats what i've heard.

First it would come as a standalone, but then one of the creators announced it would come along with it. Unless I'm turning it all around the wrong way.

I don't care how much it's going to cost. I've been waiting for this game ever since MGS3 servers shut down ages ago. There's just something about MGO that's fun, probably the fact that it isn't a "run in with guns a blazing" type of game. It's more strategic.

The new way to rip off people. I can't believe what we are turning to, this is pathetic.

Besides, the graphics downgrade from that first showing a long time ago is way too obvious, as it is, even GRAW 1 looks better, which is truly a shame because that game is OLD. Besides, what is this bringing in terms of MP? Catapults? Wow....

I'm making a wild guess here but you didn't read up on the game did you?

And what is he getting wrong? It sorta sounds like MGS4 comes with a big demo version of MGO to me.

I'm not making a wild guess, but I guess you are their ideal target.

Yep, the RIGHT people ;)

Well I for one am unsure about MGO, if it was fun, I might get it, if not, I won't. If there is a way to play this for free like a demo, I would definitely try it.

But that won't happen until MGS4 is out or a seperated demo on PSN.

LOOKS NICE, but I am not going to pay for online :-(

You are NOT gonna pay for the online.
PS3 games dont have fees for online games, look at Warhawk.

The only thing you have to pay for is the full game, if you want it, then its just go and play for FREE.

Waisting time on MGO! Release the game Japs!!!

if i understand what i've read, its like halo mutliplayer. The base is free, you have full functionality, but you have to DL additional maps...kinda like the 5$ you had to pay for the three new maps on halo2 and whatnot

and that's what i think kadixon meant.
he don't want to pay for a game which will have online only.
and i do understand that. all games (at least most) have both - single & online when you buy it.
it's cheap trick for getting more money from gamers.

    Megido @Sdarts: i tjink ive been pretty consistent in saying the books are better than the games. I dont know why you even directed that at me :) (5 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The Witcher games - and books - aren't perfect, but nothing is. For what they are and what they have accomplished, I thank both the author and the developers from the bottom of my heart. (9 Hours ago)

    Sdarts And it ran for years under the radar of almost everyone before the anime, then it suddenly became an enourmous worldwide success. In a way, the same happened with The Witcher books and the games. (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Just because certain works aren't very popular doesn't mean that they aren't great. Take for example Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the manga is even better than the anime. (9 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @GriftGFX: English. And also listened to them in English. Same with Game of Thrones' books. (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Although the games' writing isn't at the same level as the books', it's still far, far, far vastly better than 99% of the writing in games, movies, TV shows and books. CD Projekt RED did an epic job. (9 Hours ago)
