MAG PS3 Servers Experience Heavy Traffic, BETA May Reach 6GB

550°
261w ago - According to Examiner.com (linked above), an influx of new MAG BETA participants from both Qore subscribers and SCEE lottery winners led to a large increase in server load today.

A post from Shijima in the [Register or Login to view links] reveals this in detail along with hinting that the current 3GB download may total 6GB in size before all is finalized.

To quote: "Okay, I'm sorry to have to bring you some bad news. Due to circumstances beyond our control and some serious server issues, we were unable to send any codes to anyone today. I've been told that the earliest the first batch is likely to be sent out is Monday. I know many of you won't like this, but I thought it best to let you all know so that you don't have to keep checking your inboxes.

As it is, not even the existing users are having much luck getting into a game due to some critical download issues that the team are working to fix. As the servers are offline over the weekend, having to wait until next week is probably a blessing in disguise for you all. Hopefully by then all the problems will be fixed and the service will be running smoothly again.

I should also warn you that it's only become apparent today that the download is going to be pretty...
