Konami to block non-Japanese residents from playing MGO Beta?


It seems likely that Konami will block people with non-Japanese IP addresses from playing the Metal Gear Online beta, scheduled to start on April 17.

According to this guide, Konami has already blocked outsiders from accessing the Konami ID registration site (try it yourself), so it doesn't take a huge leap of logic to surmise that the firm will block those of you outside Japan who've already obtained IDs from actually participating.

Eight days to go until we find out.
