| Categories: Video Games | 17 Comments »

“Many years ago now Metal Gear Online 2 was taken from us. The game was a glorious beacon of hope in what has become a bland and bleak land of similar playing multi-player games.Metal Gear Online 2 offered something unique and fun.It was overall one of the best multiplayer games I have ever played, but due to Konamis cruelty it was taken from us.

But not all hope was lost. The awesome team at MGO2R have brought it back. While they have had it running on CFW for a while now, this time. It is for everyone. The new update which is aimed at an April release will bring the game to all Un-modded PlayStation 3s.”- Previous article

Ok, they missed April. But that is ok! They got it out! The shocking part is, that within hours of being released, over 500 people were on the game at once. That is impressive for a game that has been gone for so long. Now if only Konami understood how much the fans love these games.


Now if you want to play the game ( You should) here is the official instructions and links to their social media accounts.

“MGO2 for Official Firmware is now live!
If you are not aware, this means anyone with a regular PS3 is able to play once again.

For once, opening the server to a bunch of people actually worked.
We hit about 520 people on at the same time. Server didn’t even break a sweat.

There are still a few bugs that need to be worked out. Please be patient as we work to fix these.

    I can’t wait to play this again :) With tons of people too!

    This is so exciting!

      500 on day 1 is…OK.

      But what about after a few months?

      Plus is that mainly NA? Asia? Will I have to go online at certain times of day to find a match etc?

      I’ll probably try to get it working though just to finally play it.

      • The thing is MGO2 had enough content to keep people around for a while unlike MGO3 which stopped mostly at basic multiplayer.

        • GUN®

          True, but it’s a 9 year old game, plus you have to jump through a bunch of hoops to even play it now. I hope it does well though.

      • Jacob Kellogg

        I played it when it was in CFW and there was usually a match or two at any given time. and 500 is amazing for such an old game.

        • GUN®

          I’m just wondering will it be able to maintain those numbers.

          • Jacob Kellogg

            Me as well. I hope so, I’d love to see it keep going…I heard they were trying to add content too and make a sort of sequel as well.

          • GUN®

            That would be nuts.

          • Jacob Kellogg

            Can you imagine if they succeed…They would have the weirdest dev history ever.

  • TimesTicking

    Was interested until I saw that it would delete 99% of my current data on my PS3…
    I would have been ok if I had a 160gb but I have a 1TB on it… FUUUU.

    • Jacob Kellogg

      I luckily have 2 PS3 and no digital games. XD save data to the USB you go!

  • NorthWest Eagle

    So this is a fan project?

    • Jacob Kellogg

      Heck yeah! Konami killed the game a long time ago, just ended it when there was still a good amount of people playing.

      So fans brought it back.

      • NorthWest Eagle

        Sounds like Konami did what Konami always seems to do.
        They operate off the anguished screams of the general public these days.

        • Jacob Kellogg

          I’m just picturing the whole Monsters.INC scream machines XD

  • Leon Evelake

    It will be nice to go back and play it again…but I have a feeling I will get butchered not being used to it

    • Jacob Kellogg

      Yeah, I used to be good…But now…I probably suck.
