MAG Still Available In Stores, Just Months Before It Becomes Unplayable

TSA writes: "When it was announced that the MAG servers would be closing down on the 28th of January 2014, I thought that stores would be sent a notice to remove the game from their shelves. After all, what good is a multiplayer game that’s closing down in six months?"

The retailer bought them off Sony to sell them so they are just trying to clear stock and make some money off the investment. Still lets hope no-one buys it at Christmas

Why do they hurry to close it? I never bought it but it seems pretty good by the demo/trial... Mgo got closed after 4 years and i still dont enjoy competetive mp gaming much, besides bf,tlou, and splinter cell blacklist.

There's no one playing, maybe 100-200 at any given time. It's probably not worth the price.

It's not as expansive population wise as it was during the beta but it's still pretty easy to get a game in 1-4mins.

Loved the game played since the beta and will play till the bell tolls. Then I'll put it on my shelf and remember the game. It's the only game I usually have in m ps3 at any given time.

Hehehe, this is why I don't buy games without doing a bit of research first.

The downside to dedicated servers. Maybe they will release a p2p patch?

I cannot even fathom the lag that 256 player p2p would entail

However, maybe a patch where people could cost their own dedicated servers, either on a PC or PS3?
