Massive Demand Causes Konami To Add More Servers For MGO

If you've already downloaded the beta for Metal Gear Online, good for you. But some people are experiencing problems when it comes to accessing the Konami ID site, and there's a very good reason for that...there are way too many of you, damnit!

According to a recent post over at the official PlayStation blog by MGO's Brandon Laurino, it seems everyone is so anxious to get ready for the MGO beta test on Monday that Konami's servers simply can't handle the traffic flow. In our estimation, they probably should've anticipated a huge legion of avid MGS fans assaulting their servers to get the beta, but don't worry, they're fixin' it now:

"Hi everyone! Due to incredibly high demand for the Metal Gear Online Beta test, we are aware that some of you are experiencing difficulties connecting to the Konami ID site.

We are adding more servers and working around the clock to resolve this issue. We thank you for your patience, and your participation in the Metal Gear Online Beta test."

We certainly understand the impatience of certain gamers to get going, but you have to give Konami time to catch up to your rampant eagerness. If you are currently having difficulty with their ID site, don't worry; they should have it upgraded in two shakes of a lamb's tail.

Is everyone underestimating the size of the Metal Gear series' cult following?
I'm sure the great guys at Konami will have this problem fixed in no time though.

No, they are totally different. You need the Game ID, but you have to make a Konami ID to get the Game ID.

Yea, you'll need to suffer through the pain of the Konami website. I think it should be worth it, even if the beta got bumped to the 22nd, rather than today.

Actually it is not bumped to the 22nd, they are making an anouncment then. In that announcement, they will tell everyone when the beta test will open. BUT this beta will only be open for an additional 5 days. MGO comes out June 12th and if they don't get their butts in gear they'll have to do a beta release days before the game is released...
