Metal Gear Online Beta Live for Europe

Update: It looks like North American gamers are coming in, as well! Reports have begun to surface that the gates have been unlocked for us. Hooray! - Arnold.

  More Metal Gear Solid Online Beta news today. European servers are now up ahead of time! The wait for voucher holders is finally over as Konami has stabilized their servers after running into problems earlier on last week, delaying the launch of the Beta by a number of days.

   Initially, Konami announced that both European and North American gamers will be able to log in tomorrow, April 26th, but they've decided to let Europeans in early. While no official reason has been stated as to why the surprise opening, we can only assume that it was done to prevent a sudden influx of people, which could use instability in the servers.

   By letting one group of people in first, this gives Konami the chance to keep everything running smoothly and adjust to possible instability on the fly, before it turns into bigger problems. Americans, you guys should be able to hop on in tomorrow, as planned.

Screw you dude. I am kinda partial to lets see, FPS not TPS. All you bastards were complaining about the CoD branded TPS and now you're all rejoicing this Third Person flop. You guys all need to get your mulitpule personalities checked.

this beta is just... awesome - it seriously is amazing and I never imagined MG could get this good.

The scanning skill is a brilliant piece of work, allowing you to hack into enemy data on the battlefield by infiltrating their PLAYERS is a brilliant idea.

Not sure yet what the ranks/titles/awards are.

I have the 5 consecutive kills award, am level 3 overall, have the title 'Bee' for being a 'scanning master'. Also got level 2 handgun mastery =D
