Recently Brandon Laurino of Konami Online revealed some information about the MGO SCENE expansion pack on the PlayStation.blog. The post lit up with comments about the Konami ID and the lack of trophies for Metal Gear Solid 4 and Metal Gear Online. Brandon replied in an interesting tone that suggests trophies are still on the table.
Hi all – I’m jumping in to post some responses to the questions and comments here. First, to clear up some discussion about the PS Wallet / Store – SCENE will be available to purchase using your PS Wallet (the funds you have on PSN), but will not be available for purchase / download through the PS Store. So, basically, it’s another payment option (along with PayPal) available through the in-game / MGO store. Hopefully, this will help those of you who have had issues with payment in the past, and generally make it easier to get this content. 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. With regards to “cheaters”, it’s a battle every online game must face, and we have been working on addressing the specific “cheats” you have detailed, so please stay tuned. Also, we have been aggressively wielding the “banhammer”, and every genuine video/photo/or other evidence of cheating you can send us at firstname.lastname@example.org really helps us tackle this. We really appreciate all your input and ask that you continue to help us make MGO a fun and fair game for everyone. Thank you very much! – B
This falls short of a confirmation, but certainly breathes new life into the glaring omission of trophies from MGS4 and MGO. Both games are well suited for a trophy patch and it’s long overdue.
