If you are from any of the above countries then you will not be able to use your credit card to purchase Metal Gear Online’s gene expansion. There is currently no word on exactly why Konami is not accepting credit cards from these countries. I certainly hope that Konami hears all of their fans comments. It is not fair to be able to purchase a game and then not be able to purchase content that goes with the game. The listed countries do bring numbers to Konami’s purchases, so I think that the gene expansion’s loss in sales will hurt.

  1. Nice article.

  2. That’s really weird. Maybe they’re scared of fraud?

  3. I don’t know, what makes those countries any more fraudulent than any of the others they are accepting credit cards from? I would hope they are not letting stereotypes determine their decisions.
