Portable Ops league launches

As delayed game is released.

Konami has launched an online league for Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops on PSP, which finally launches properly in Europe today following this month's earlier, botched attempt to get it out there.

Residing at www.mpoleague.com, the service allows players to create their own custom tournaments and build up their own clans, managing recruitment, discussing tactics in the forums and all that jazz. Konami also plans to run three official tournaments between June and October.

The rather brilliant Portable Ops has taken a while to arrive in Europe, but it's been worth the wait if you ask us. As well as a meaty single-player game, which moulds the traditional MGS stealth gameplay into a more compact form that suits the PSP, the game offers online multiplayer similar to PS2 title Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence.

Indeed, Konami says that Subsistence's online popularity was one of the reasons it created a similar service for Portable Ops. Those of you buying in can read the full announcement over on the site, which is offered in five languages - English, German, French, Spanish and Italian.
