191w ago - Zipper Interactive's Jeremy Dunham has revealed that the new MAG PS3 Beta launches today on PlayStation Store.

To quote: All you have to do to participate is download it when it becomes available, put your MAG disc into the PlayStation 3, and start the beta client from the "Game" section of the XMB.

Please Note: You MUST have a MAG retail disc in your PlayStation 3 in order for the MAG Beta client to work

191w ago - EA Community Manager Matthew Pruitt has shared details today on how user feedback helped shape Medal of Honor's Multiplayer PS3 Beta.

To quote: The Medal of Honor beta is now closed and we want to thank you, PlayStation fans, for supporting us! The turnout was tremendous and we could not have asked for a better experience.

It is always great to do a true beta like this, because at the end of the day, this game is for you, the gamers. We received some amazing feedback and opted to extend the beta to make sure that we were able to hear as much of it as we could. Twitter, Facebook, and our forums have been blowing up with comments and we have been taking many notes.

We have learned a lot, and we wanted to take this opportunity to run down some of the major changes/fixes we have made to the game as a direct result of your feedback.

Improved Hit Detection

This was a very big issue and came up many times in the forums. We are glad to say that hit detection has been vastly improved. We really tightened up the mechanics and essentially, wherever the bullet hits on the body – that is where the hit registers. It is even possible to shoot and have the bullet go between someone's legs - it is...

192w ago - Today Zipper Interactive's Jeremy Dunham has announced that MAG will soon be compatible with PlayStation Move, and he shared details on a new PS3 Beta program as follows:

If you're a fan of our massive 256-player first-person shooter, MAG, then today's news should be of great interest to you.

Truth be told, we have so many tremendous revisions coming to our "ever-changing global war" that it's almost impossible to tell you about everything we have planned in a single article... but we have to begin somewhere, and we're starting with PlayStation Move!

That's right, later this Autumn MAG will offer full compatibility with the PlayStation Move!

This added support means that users have another way to experience the most ambitious first-person shooter out there. Pinpoint accuracy and easy access to all of the game's mechanics ensure that players of any type – be they hardened veterans or new recruits – can enjoy a shooting experience unlike any other.

But PlayStation Move support isn't all we're working on. Because our upcoming content is so important to the game and its future, we want your assistance to make sure we get it right! With that notion in mind we're pleased to announce that, one week from today on August 24, we're inviting...

194w ago - A few days back we saw hints that the Killzone 3 PS3 beta may be coming, and today further confirmation arrives with the launch of the official Killzone 3 PlayStation 3 Web site HERE.

According to JamesM5150 via IronStarMovement.com (linked above), more Killzone 3 PS3 details are expected to surface at this year's Gamescom convention, which runs from August 18th to the 22nd, 2010.

To quote: "This pretty much confirms that there will be indeed some sort of public beta announcement soon, considering everyone that had access to the Killzone 2 multiplayer beta (which started: 10/08/08) can view the Killzone 3 beta listing themselves.

There is also a Killzone 3 beta website that allows you to log-in with your PlayStation Network ID, however, you cannot access the contents of the webpage just yet and your PSN ID is claimed to be invalid."
