Some Metal Gear Online beta codes invalid, downloads impossible

It appears that a few unfortunate PS3 owners have received invalid Metal Gear Online beta codes. While PSN redemption codes are usually 12 digits long, many are finding 9 digit codes instead. Attempts to use these abbreviated codes have been met with a frustrating error screen. Unless Konami rectifies this situation, these people will be unable to download or join the beta.

We've contacted Konami, but have yet heard back from them. For now, we can only advise affected readers to email Konami support at mgobetasupport AT We'll update this post when we find out more information.
