MGO Rewards Shop Up And Running

Hey, guess what's back, MGO fans?

When Konami released Metal Gear Online, they must've underestimated the potential popularity of the game, because they've been experiencing server difficulties for quite a while. A wide variety of complaints started flowing in after the latest expansion pack became available, and that included the loss of the Metal Gear Online Rewards Store. Well, as you can see, it's back, and it should be operating at 100% capacity. Remember, you can gain reward points by participating in official matches online, and you can cash them in at the Reward Store for a ton of different goodies. It's an excellent incentive idea to keep players playing, and the better you do, the more collectible stuff you can accumulate.

As for the rest of the server issues, we're hoping everything has been resolved by now. Konami hasn't issued an official statement of any kind on the matter, although they certainly acknowledged the major problems when they hit. If you're a big MGO fan, let us know if everything is kosher once again.

I guess when a game does that well online wise, a few kinks are a "positive" thing in the developers eyes....but a "negative" in the gamers eyes. But hey atleast they fixed it and we can continue to enjoy it :)

Why doesn't konami take the time to integrate this with the store. It's annoying having two different accounts. Well, more than that: PSN ID, Konami ID, Game ID and character name.

Yea, the whole Konami store thing is just a Joke in my book. It just makes things way more complicated than they need to be :-\

I'm 100% with BazookaJoe. Lots of people don't have credit cards that work on the MGO Store. But debit cards work on the PS Store. Plus there's cards. They could have more sales and not have to worry about maintaining the store.

Cheers mate, i don't have a credit card and the whole ''lets do the interface as a website, that'll stress out everybody!''* is really annoying.
