You know, the highly-touted, uber-elite multiplayer mode found on the Subsistence version of Metal Gear Solid 3?  They're stopping the service and promoting Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops' online multiplayer as the evolution of MGS Online.

Which is funny, because you find more cheating, less total number of players per game (6 in the PSP version, 8 in the ps2) and it's even MORE noob-unfriendly.

I checked tonight - the PS2 MGS online had around 330 players and the PSP version had 118. 

Plus, Subsistence has been out JUST over a year!  That was QUICK!

I remember the idea of playing Metal Gear Solid online SOUNDING cool...and it is fun to hop on every once in awhile.  Nothing like hiding in a box to have an enemy run around the corner and CQC him to the ground...only to have him get up and shoot you while fumbling with the controls...errrrr, yeah, that was my experience, anyway biggrin

Anyone else a tad perturbed that Konami's pulling the plug this early?  After only one year?

Well, if the peak population is 330 users, they're just throwing money away.  I do, however, agree that when a single developer's responsible for upkeep and hosting, they should commit to a minimum timeframe in which they'll keep the service active.

I'm not too heartbroken about it - it seems as if the PS2 version was a trial run for the PSP version and that the PSP version is a trial run for the PS3 version. 

I think darren8r is going to be ticked, though (where did he go, anyway?).

Honestly, I hated the online play. It was too hard to do anything.
It is still sad that they're shutting it down though. But as I don't play, it's just water under the bridge.
