MAG - Massive Action Game PS3 Beta Starts Today


Sponsored Links
236w ago - Zipper Interactive Sr. Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has announced that the MAG - Massive Action Game PS3 Beta officially starts today, although many have commented (below) that they are currently experiencing server issues.

The good news? Sony say it is working hard to fix the issues, to quote from SCEE's Elliott Martin from the European PlayStation blog:

"We have seen a few connection issues today, which the team are working to resolve, so it's possible you may experience some issues connecting to games for the time being."

Welcome back from the holidays, [Register or Login to view links] fans! As we mentioned before we went on break, today is the day that our 100% free and open MAG Beta program kicks off on the PlayStation Network!

Hopefully, you've taken advantage of the head start we provided a few weeks back and already downloaded all the files you need so you can just log in and start playing the game immediately.

If you didn't get a chance to grab the goods quite yet, however, or are just now learning about the program for the first time, that's okay too - anyone can grab the MAG Beta and its files at any time between now and the end of the testing phase on January 10 at 11:59pm.

Here's a three-step refresher course on what you'll need to do to get the Beta:

1. Log on to the PlayStation Store, Select "View All By Title -> M Titles -> MAG" and download the MAG Beta file like you would any other freely-available PSN video or demo (298 MB)

2. Launch the MAG Beta program from your XMB to download a special patch that will restart [Register or Login to view links] once the update has been received (another 37 MB)

3. After the reboot, the Beta will reconnect and download the actual game data so that you can play (1.8 GB - 2.3 GB depending on your region)

Remember, the MAG Beta is taking place worldwide - all you need to participate no matter where you live is a PlayStation 3 and an internet connection. Once you've logged on, get ready to enjoy two different game modes: 64-player sabotage and 256-player domination!

We hope you enjoy the Beta up until January 10, and we'll see you again later this week in [Register or Login to view links] for our big MAG Goes Gold Community Event.

it's actually quite fun to play MAG, but over time it gets boring

I hope the final product can do it better

MW2 didn't look (that) good either. But that might be due to the fact that I played Killzone 2 and (especially) Uncharted 2 right before i played MW2

Can't wait to try MAG myself though. Too bad the download takes quite long (1.8GB patch...)

The download sucks, but it's well worth it...I downloaded mine overnight during my slumber hours.

I'm ignoring MW2 completely. Im in the same boat with you as far as KZ2 and UC2 is concerned.

and victor307664 if you're going into a game already disappointed why even play.

You're not gonna get MW2 graphics with this many players in one game.

Hey, the download is not available yet. That sucks. Are you gonna need to get the code again or will it be available by the end of the day? I played it the first time the beta came out. I was not happy at all. Im gonna try it again cause I enjoy being disappointed.
