Still playing Metal Gear 3 online? Say goodbye come April 3 … suckers

If you’re one of the proud and few still playing Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence online, then you’re going to be in for a very rude awakening on April 3 as Konami shuts down the online function of the title. 1UP was able to notice the warning and alert us all that Konami quietly sent an execution date for the game’s online functionality. Ouch:

Konami sincerely thanks all of the Subsistence online community for their dedication to the game and support of the Metal Gear Solid series. The Metal Gear online tradition of stealth, action and team play continues on the PSP system with Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops with all-new characters, levels and modes of play – don’t miss this incredible evolution of Metal Gear Online. Thank you for the Kojima Productions battle and thanks for the chance to work on that guide. I will miss the game and all of those times.
