Click to viewMetal Gear Online sure hasn't gone as smoothly as Konami (or anyone else for that matter) had hoped. And it's even worse if you live in one of the countries on Konami's list. Kotaku reader Nasser explains:

I am a Metal Gear solid diehard fan & was so happy to play MGO... I'd tried to purchase the gene expansion of Metal Gear Online but first...the server was 'down' (as usual)...then when they 'fixed' it...u can only purchase the expansion from only selected countries...I live in the Middle-east, & they don't except any online credit purchase in their site from my country...

I tried to create an American Konami ID use so I can purchase the expansion...and...doesn't work... I tried to contact Konami for help.. But I couldn't find any. I mean... why can't they just put it on the PSN... it's much easier & we will not face any server issues like we usually see in on MGO servers

After Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 Online disaster on the PS3... And these MGO problems... I began to believe that Konami sucks when it comes to online play.
So guys... if there any way to purchase the gene expansion... any trick any thing... please... tell me...I am so desperate

Hm, what a conveniently topical post this is - I was just trying to get on to MGO two hours ago, but couldn't because of some epic patch update that took over an hour to get to 10% (a patch that I'm forced to download through the game on my PS3)...

But anyway, yeah Konami's really dropped the ball off a skyscraper with their online support. Their servers have always been a bit flaky during my MGO sessions, they make us pay $7 for every MGO character slot past the initial one, and their online shop crashes during a big content release leaving some paying customers with nothing.

MGO is a fairly solid, fun online game though, so I'd like to play a bit more.
