Massive Action Game (MAG) Beta 4 for Sony's PS3 Starts Today

263w ago - Zipper Interactive Sr. Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has officially announced today that their Massive Action Game (MAG) Beta 4 for Sony's PS3 console starts today.

To quote: I wanted to share some news regarding our latest MAG beta program that we're kicking off right now. Starting today, we've officially moved into our next Beta phase - Beta 4.

We've made more than 6,000 changes from our last phase to Beta 4, not the least of which include an increased level cap from 40 to 60, a retooled skill tree and experience curve, and an improved ranking system - all based on the feedback from our diligent testing crew.

We've also introduced two new major features to Beta 4. We've implemented the oft-asked about "proximity chat" feature that allows you to hear enemies communicating as you get closer, or trash talk them yourself as you punch 'em full of lead.

We've also introduced Shadow War bonuses. Depending on which PMCs are leading in the number of contracts owned, the entire PMC will earn different bonuses based on gametype. Leading in Sabotage adds experience points, leading in Acquisition increases leadership aura distance, and leading in Domination decreases tactical strike cooldown time.

Other new additions to Beta 4 include improvements...

265w ago - Update: Microsoft's [Register or Login to view links] has now officially confirmed the bans.

This Halloween it appears Microsoft has pulled a TRICK with no TREAT on modified XBox 360 console owners... specifically, mass bans have been initiated against them.

IGN (linked above) have confirmed this news, to quote: "We have taken action against a small percentage of consoles that have been modified to play pirated game discs," a Microsoft spokesperson told IGN.

"In line with our commitment to combat piracy and support safer and more secure gameplay for the more than 20 million members of our Xbox LIVE community, we are suspending these modded consoles from Xbox LIVE."

Though Microsoft wouldn't confirm specifically when these bannings took place, a quick look over on its official forums suggest it's been going on over the course of this past week.

Plenty of users have created threads on the technical feedback forum reporting of having their Xbox 360 console banned.
