Yesterday, GameSpot put out an article that said Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain's forward operating base (FOB) multiplayer, was locked behind a paywall. Gamespot said that in order to even play FOB, players had to first purchase an in-game currency, MB Coins, using real world money.

Today, Konami issued a statement to PC Gamer that flat out said that was a complete load of BS.

GameSpot's Peter Brown has decided to sneer in Konami's general direction and has again insisted that FOB can only be accessed by spending real world money.


I guess we'll see who is right and who is full of crap in about a week's time.
