MGO SCENE Information, MGS4 Trophies In The Works?
The legendary series continues to roll onwards, and we've got several big updates for you today concerning both Metal Gear Online and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
As posted over at the official PlayStation blog, Konami Online Brandon Laurino has provided MGO players with details for the upcoming SCENE expansion. If you pre-order the expansion one week before the launch date, you can even pick up the special "Cardboard Man" costume, which you see pictured at the blog. ...silly, yes, but somewhat amusing. Keep reading at the blog for all the SCENE details (we already told you in an earlier news report that both Raiden and Vamp would become playable characters); other news continues during Laurino's update in a later post below. First, he clarifies that while you can use funds in your PSN Wallet, you cannot purchase the MGO SCENE expansion on the PlayStation Store. You can use your PSN money or a PayPal account to nab the expansion directly from the in-game/MGO store. Then, he mentions the oft-requested MGS4 and MGO Trophies:
"On the subject of MGS4/MGO trophies and Konami ID - we hear you. We have been circulating these issues internally, and we will report back as soon as we are able."
Remember, MGS4 came out in June of last year, when the concept of PlayStation 3 Trophies was still in its infancy stages. Therefore, the game didn't receive them, and fans have been clamoring for the addition ever since. Obviously, you'd have to play through the game again to get the Trophies once they become available, but...well, is that really a problem for anyone?
