Last-Gen MGSV Versions Support Fewer Players Online
If you're still playing on last-gen systems when Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain releases, you'll have to deal with a slightly lesser experience.
According to the game's Japanese website (and as translated by Videogamer), the last-gen versions of MGSV will only support 12 players online, while the PS4, Xbox One and PC iterations will support up to 16.
Now everyone is wondering: Does this mean there will be other differences? It seems hard to believe that the only difference will be the max number of players, but you never know. Perhaps the maps will have to shrink, though (as they did in Battlefield 3). Some consumers are waiting for games like MGSV before jumping onto the new console bandwagon, and maybe information like this will help convince others as well.
Konami has already confirmed that Metal Gear Online will be a free part of The Phantom Pain. Looking forward to it?
