Konami enrages the community by charging $10 for an extra save slot

Konami is one of the most popular gaming companies in Japan, but it has recently angered its player base by charging $10 for an extra save slot. The company claims this is because of increased costs and development time, but many players feel they are being charged for a service that should be free.

Metal Gear Survive, a game created by Konami, was just released, and it has already sparked a lot of debate. In light of recent revelations regarding microtransactions, fans were outraged to learn that an additional save space in Metal Gear Survive will cost them $10.

Long-time Metal Gear fans may still have grudges towards Konami for the manner series creator Hideo Kojima departed the business in 2015. Six months later, the studio announced Metal Gear Survive. When it first came out of beta a week ago, the game received mixed reviews.

 

Many people have also expressed dissatisfaction with the game’s boring gameplay, which includes obnoxious survival mechanisms and unpolished fighting. This has sparked considerable debate regarding Konami’s aim to make as much money as possible from the game’s purchasers. The game begins with a single character save, and the player must spend the in-game money “SV coins” to acquire more slots.

The price ranges from $0.99 for 100 coins to $49.99 for 6000 SV coins. As previously stated, the additional save spot will cost 1150 coins, which is about $9.99. Cosmetic goods and character/experience enhancements may be purchased with coins, much as in other microtransaction games. Metal Gear Survive, on the other hand, does not enable you to acquire the money via regular gameplay. They do, however, reward you with a little amount of currency for signing in.

Many gamers, on the other hand, claim that since Metal Gear Survive is just $40 instead of $60, the additional $10 for a save space isn’t a huge issue and isn’t driven only by greed. Some argue that having one save slot is sufficient and that adding another is unnecessary.

Metal Gear Survive is now available on Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
