MGO Beta Available On Store Now?
As most of you are well aware, the beta testing for Metal Gear Online won't begin until Monday (April 21), but it seems some users over at the official PlayStation forums are saying you can download the beta right now.
Apparently, it's a matter of having either a 9-digit or 12-digit beta code, and that may be the difference between downloading now or Monday. If you're one of the lucky ones who secured a spot in the beta by pre-ordering Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, you can give it a try by going through the relatively simple process. First, just go into Account Management and Transaction Management, then select "Redeem PlayStation Network Card Or Promo Code," and enter the code you have. If it works, you will start downloading the beta, even though the servers don't go up until Monday. Without any doubt, this is going to be one of the biggest beta tests anybody has ever seen, so it's no surprise to see a lot of eager beavers. Konami hasn't said anything besides confirming the April 21 start date, so at the very least, you get to start testing in a few days time.
If you've managed to download the beta and have any details you wish to add, feel free to leave a comment below. We'll update the story if necessary, but this is all we know for the time being.
