SIGN UP FOR METAL GEAR ONLINE PS3 JAPANESE BETA - TUTORIAL

Don't know if this will interest anyone or not but I've just followed the step by step instructions and now have a code for the Japanese Metal Gear Online Beta Trial which I believe starts in Mid April.

With this code I believe that I can download the game from the Japanese PS3 store for free and play/test it out:)

Here's the link to the tutorial, which I think you'll need to copy and paste into your browser.

Please don't click on the Sony link, dont know how that got there:)

It will generate a code for you so I don't see why it shouldn't work:)

If you get stuck on anything when doing the tutorial then feel free to give me a shout as I made an a**e of it the first time:)

This should be in the Misc sub forum instead.

I did think about putting it there originally but thought it was a "deal" as you're actually getting something for free??:oops:

I'm Done! i cant wait till it is released

I suspect this will only be open to japanses residents only.

What makes you think that Stora??

Anyone can access the Japanese PS3 store online, and thats where you'll be downloading the beta from.

And what would be the point in issuing you with the code if you couldn't use it.

I think this will work!

lol then it should be in the Freebies sub forum

The mods will move this thread anyway if its in the wrong section :thumbsup:

Will the Japanese store where the beta will (later) be available allow download to a PC, or will it be directly to the PS3 through the Sony Online shop? Just wondering if UK users will be able to access this. Still voted hot.

I'm guessing the servers will be in Japan.

Anyway I've asked on the PS3 forums and am waiting for a reply.

Nice one. If you can let us know as I can only get to the UK store. I know theres a way of getting the Japanese one on UK PS3 but not been through it and not really bothered, but for MGS it might be worth it

The recently updated teaser site for Metal Gear Online has announced that the Metal Gear Online Beta will be starting April 14th 2008. The service will offficially start on 12th June, Metal Gear Solid 4's release date of course.

Access to the Beta will be granted by pre-ordering Metal Gear Solid 4 at "all major retailers", specific details remain unannounced, however...........

Moved to misc.

Managed to follow the tutorial and get the code. One tip though, on the last stage (step 10) when you log into the Konami site after receiving the confirmation email, I was clicking on the button below the id and password boxes and it didn't work, so I just entered my id and password and pressed Enter and that worked with the survey then loading. Just hope we can download it on UK PS3s now

i'd imagine you'd also have to have a Japanese account set up on your ps3 to access their store so that you can download the beta when it comes online in the store.

I've got a UK, US, and Japanese account set up so I don't envisage any problems.:whistling:

Dear Stora,********** has just replied to a thread you have subscribed … Dear Stora,********** has just replied to a thread you have subscribed to entitled - Japanese MGO Open Beta - in the [BC] English Forum forum of Official PlayStation Community.This thread is located at:http://community.eu.playstation.com/showthread.php?t=***********Here is the message that has just been posted:***************Konami Insider wrote:Here's the deal, we're well aware of PS3 owners applying to subscribe to the MGS Online Beta which is currently limited to Japanese PSN account holders (i.e. Japanese residents), anyone subscribing with a PSN id which isn't registered from a Japanese PSN account will not be accepted into the program. However, we're also well aware that a large number of unscrupulous members have signed up for a Japanese PSN as well. Any member who has signed up to the Japanese PSN with fake or invalid details will be flagged at this point and their PSN accounts suspended pending further enquiries, in addition all beta members have to fill out an initial beta slip sent to their registered Japanese address. If they fail to return this beta slip, their access to the beta programme will become suspended.It is our effort to only offer beta testing to qualified individuals who can offer us quality assurances on the beta versions of any of our software. Members abusing this system will be reported to Sony (worldwide) and it will be our request that such accounts or sub accounts will be banned from participation in ANY beta program in future and in cases where information supplied is fraudulent access to the relevant PSN networks will also be restricted to them.I hope this clears things up for you, please as requested do not publicise my name***************There may be other replies also, but you will not receive any more notifications until you visit the forum again.All the best,Official PlayStation Community
