    psp Join the MGS treasure hunt

    Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, the team-based Metal Gear episode for PSP, will feature a location-specific download system that'll see you downloading special playable characters in different locations across the globe.

    Originally thought to be tied into the PSP GPS add-on, Konami has revealed that the GPS receiver (which isn't confirmed for the UK) won't be required for this feature to work.

    To get all the characters, you'll have to be a real jet-setter. At special PSP points around the world you'll be able to hook up and download a character - some are from MGS history, some are new - to add to your Portable Ops team. One character will be available in a location in London, for instance, while another might be downloadable in Manchester, Barcelona or Tokyo.

    With Portable Ops not out until early next year, Konami is keeping schtum on who these special characters are but we'll continue to hunt down new info.

    I thought this was old news.
    It's not so cool to be forced to go to London, Tokyo and Barcelona to get some characters. There must be another way of getting them?

    Its not really being forced... Those who can get there will have a character that someone who can't doesn't have. They probably don't offer anything but a unique face to the battle field (as to maintain balance and playability).

    What it really is doing is 'forcing' people to bring their PSPs wherever they go on vacation, in the event that perhaps they can get this character.

    why should we spend $5000 to travel around the world to download other characters. its not right. the most they should do is download off a website for like a dollor. or they should have it so that you can download it directly on your psp like "megaman power up" did to get new characters and level. well i'm not going around the world to download a character i'm waiting until a game save comes out with all the characters.

    lol why are people seeing this the wrong way? No sane human being would travel around the world to download characters...

    All its doing is giving you something else to do IN THE EVENT that you happen to be walking the streets of London or some other major city. Not to mention, some, if not most, people live near a major city that will probably have said character location.

    I live near New York city and I know damn well that the largest city on earth is going to get its own special character to download...

    People are making a big deal out of it like you have to travel to get them... If you are going on vacation to Londo, Tokyo, etc and happen to bring your PSP, guess what? You're in luck.

    If these are going to be downloadable extra's, can't people just upload them somewhere so that everyone can get them?
