Metal Gear Online launches today


Have you been enjoying the campaign in Konami’s excellent Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain? Have you been hankering after something a little more social though? Today, Konami launches Metal Gear Online, to allow you to do just that.

Metal Gear Online is the dedicated, squad-based multiplayer component of The Phantom Pain and after a short update, should be available to Xbox One and Xbox 360 players from today.

This new option is visible from the main game’s menu, allowing users to experience multiplayer action from within the game’s stunning open world locations. Initially included in the PS3’s MGS IV: Guns of the Patriots, this has been redesigned with the familiar aesthetic styling of the acclaimed series.

The online element will feature Tactical Team Operations and a class system that more uniquely defines the strengths and abilities of player characters on the battlefield.

As if that wasn’t good news enough, all Collector’s Edition additional content can now be redeemed. This means you could now get your itchy trigger-fingers on the gold WU S Pistol and AM MRS-4, an XP Boost and a Metal Gear Rex helmet.

Day One Edition owners can also grab their redeemable XP Boost.


New UK consumer act enables digital refunds


As of October 1, 2015, UK consumers have been granted further protection against faulty goods, enabling customers to receive a refund should a digital product be deemed faulty.

You will now have 30 days to claim should you discover your digitally purchased goods are faulty, and can make a claim via the retailer. For example, if you purchased your game through the Xbox Live store, then you will have to go via Microsoft, or if you purchased it through Steam, you would contact Valve.

The Citizens Advice website gives various instances where faulty digital content can be eligible for a refund, below of which is the example they give for a downloadable game:

You download a free game (for example, a virtual world) and build up some virtual currency in the game through your normal game play. You then buy some additional virtual currency in order to make an in-app purchase (for example, an item for their world). The item is faulty and doesn’t appear in your virtual world. Under the Act, as the game is free, the provider does not have to provide a remedy for any faults in the game. However, once you paid a price for some content then, if then you can show that that content is faulty (that is, does not meet the quality rights), the provider will be liable to provide a remedy. The provider is only liable for faults affecting the chargeable elements of the game.

The question to ask now is, as we’re very much in a digital world, what constitutes a faulty product? Would the graphical issues at the launch of Assassin’s Creed: Unity result in mass-refunds within the first month of launch? Or is it more focused to titles which are completely unplayable, much like the ill-fated release of Batman: Arkham » Continue Reading.

EA Sports to remove 13 female players from FIFA 16


EA Sports has announced it is removing 13 players from the female roster in FIFA 16 due to the inclusion risking their eligibility for collegiate athletics.

Due to the fact that the players are “currently attending or are likely to attend NCAA-sanctioned schools” in the US, NCAA informed EA these 13 student-athletes would be “risking their eligibility” by being included in FIFA 16.

EA aren’t happy:

“All rights were secured following standard protocol with national governing bodies and federations, and none of these NCAA student-athletes or potential student athletes were to be individually compensated by EA SPORTS for their inclusion in the game. We believe this decision denies these 13 athletes the opportunity to represent their countries in the game, but we have removed them from FIFA 16 to ensure there is no risk to their eligibility.

The players affected are:

    Kadeisha Buchanan, Canada Jessie Fleming, Canada Ashley Lawrence, Canada Janine Beckie, Canada Rebecca Quinn, Canada Sura Yekka, Canada Celia Jiménez, Spain Tanya Samarzich, Mexico Greta Espinoza, Mexico Christina Murillo, Mexico Amanda Perez, Mexico Emily Alvarado, Mexico Maria Sanchez, Mexico

FIFA 16 is due out in North America on 22 September and 24 September in Europe.
