    Lol yeah i am aware of that. I am yet to receive that email. I know i probably wont be able to play this as they could easily block my IP. I was just curious to see if i could infact downlaod it through the "exploit" i read. And it worked. But as i said it probably wont work for when i want to play it.

    Anyways more pictures.

    I installed it and then i clicked on it through the XMB it came up with the intro showing all the companies and stuff like Kojima Productions or somthing.( I also might add the music is very cool aswell)

    And then i said it found an update (it wouldnt let me do anything until i updated), so im updating it now. And its pretty cool. It asks you how you want to download the update. Via HTTP or Peer2Peer. I chose Peer2Peer and there are obviously alot more people doing this as i am downlaoding off other peers. I also want to add fuck this is a huge update aswell.

    Thats what the pictures are of. And its weird casue its all in english and not japanese.



    UPDATE: Okay i finished the update and i go to play it but it comes back with a server error. Which is i think expected since the servers havent launched yet. So i shall try tomorrow.

    MGS4 online seems kinda stupid but then I had a closer look at MGS4 and I found its a lot more action based ,which is a shame...
    Still looks awesome as hell though.

    maybe you should play the game first before you past judgement? the online beta is free to download so try and play it for a while, i truly enjoyed playing the metal gear solid 3 subsistence online (i beta tested it too) and i'm expecting this one to be just as good [​IMG]

    I played all three but I prefer the first over all of them where the focus was mostly on sneaking.
    Splinter Cell seems more like Metal Gear then Metal Gear [​IMG]
