MGS Portable Ops: Recruitment videos (Round 2)

One of the cooler features players have taken a liking to on Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops is definitely the GPS feature. Working in conjunction with the PSP’s GPS receiver, the game’s soldier recruitment feature has already been the subject of videos showing off how the thing works.

But while we liked the video mentioned, we had to admit that the low-res recording made it hard to track what exactly was going on. So, we did a bit of searching and found another set of vids, which covered gamer zmcnulty ‘s quest to recruit troops. This set should be easier to view, with the bonus that the guy mentions other details on the game’s GPS function:

  • The search feature (The circle on the screen’s center) apparently has a radius of half-a-mile.
  • Keep a compass handy to know if you’re heading North, South, East or West.
  • As you get closer to your target, you can zoom in the screen for better bearings.
  • When you get within a certain range (zmcnulty thinks it’s 100 yards), the soldier’s vital statistics pop up on your screen.

On a last note: While the feature is a nifty way to coerce gamers like us into healthier habits like walking and exercise, we do offer a word of caution to the guys opting for the GPS accessory. There’s been many a strange incident regarding the tech’s tracing ability, and we’re just hoping you guys use it responsibly, unlike this sad example. Enjoy.
