Konami Suspends Metal Gear Online Service to Conserve Energy

Restart date currently undetermined.


Following Friday's Tohoku earthquake and tsunami disaster, power companies have been asking consumers to conserve electricity, particularly during peak hours. Konami is doing its part by suspending service on Metal Gear Online.

A post today at the MGO official site says that service will be suspended temporarily in an effort to alleviate potential energy shortages.

The Kojima Productions Twitter posted English versions of the service message, so this may apply to the game outside of Japan as well. MGO players should check for themselves.
