143w 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
Once you've logged on to the server and your pre-existing MAG character has been copied to its universe (don't worry, the copy-over won't affect your main character), you can then access our beta server in two separate sessions per weekday -- with each session lasting four hours apiece every Monday through Friday. Listed below are the session times for multiple time zones.
144w ago - Approximately nine months have passed since the PlayStation 2 was launched in Brazil, and now Sony has made the PS3 Slim 120GB console available there for around $1,130 USD each.
Believe it or not, that is actually $278 less than originally planned from Sony Style stores for the South American country, as Anderson Gracias explains via Kotaku (linked above), to quote:
"According to Anderson Gracias, division manager of Sony PlayStation Brazil, the original price was to be 2,499 Brazil Reais, or $1,408. In order to stay competitive with the Xbox 360, which sells for R $999 to R $1,599 in the country, Sony is subsidizing part of the cost.
Brazil will get the PlayStation Network in three phases, beginning in 2011 with a Portuguese translation. Then Brazilian content will be added, and finally the service will be tweaked to work with the services available in the country."
