A lot of people have been clamoring to get a spot in the Metal Gear Online
beta and for the most part, everyone's been allowed. A few hiccups with broken codes, but Konami has vowed to help those afflicted by such misfortunes. The Poll Police are on a quest this week to see how your experience signing up for this event has measured up compared to the horror stories circulating on PS3 forums worldwide.
On a personal experience level, this Officer of Opinion had quite a bit of difficulty, but only in the sense of patience. Peer-to-peer updating was slow and destroyed bandwidth for most of a day, then navigating Konami's clogged site was a test in perseverance, but it all went swimmingly if the factor of time was removed. What happened in last week's poll
? The mystery is solved after the jump.
We're glad to see that almost all of you were at least somewhat excited over the new PlayStation Store. It definitely works a lot faster, has easier navigation, and is more pleasing on an aesthetic level. Overall, an improvement that goes beyond our expectations. Now if only we could get a wild amount of content up there, it'd be worth going into more than once a month ... oh well. Thanks for voting, everyone!
