Zipper released MAG about one year ago, It has sold more than 1 million copies. It had lots of patches and DLC support but Zipper isn't done yet.
let it go Zipper we want SOCOM focus 110% in SOCOM MAG was good and a diferent experience but that it noting great or special.
When I first heard about MAG i was excited. However, after playing the beta i was severely turned off. The game honestly sucked no matter how many disagrees I get the game was just average. 256 players were never actually 'felt' in the game due to the massive size. How about we get 256 players on a map like shipment or rust.
You gotta be stupid to want that.
you played the beta idiot
@Best Lucky you, I was super excited for MAG also, but since I didn't get into the beta, my first experience with it was after I bought it. Biggest waste of money ever, cost me $65 traded in the same week for only $20.
I loved MAG and after they ironed out the major kinks turned out even better and unlike COD it took skill to rape in that game. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
smoke, you were raped lol. seriously you traded it back in the same week for 20 bucks? its either you're dumb or your lying. its always good for a developer to keep supporting its game. hopefully they'll do the same with the new socom.
@Retro_Zombie Come play me in Black Ops and you'll see that it "takes skill to rape." @corepred4 Yeah your right, I'm dumb. Not for getting rid of a game I didn't like, but for buying MAG in the first place.
I'm pretty sure it was $25 on gamestop unless you're talking about a different store.
they are awesome developers
They certainly are... Zipper was the studio of 2010 IMO. They provide the best support of any developer I have ever seen. I played MAG since the beta, and watching this game evolve from beta to launch to today has been a great experience.
dont forget PD they fixed everything that people complained about IN GT5. that aside i still love MAG and put 200+ hours into it with 3 vets the game is fun requires teamwork and its nice to see a developer really support their game; its paying off to since more and more people are joining again. @guitarded PD said they plan to update the game every month, or so i've read, and rumors, maybe statements suggested some SD cars might be updated to premium
@ Tony-Red-Grave I love GT5 (fuck the haters), but let's see how much support PD has given at the end of 2011. Zipper has been so good with MAG, and they also listen to and communicate directly with the fans. SOCOM 4 is a day one for me because I know Zipper will support it.
Too bad. They certainly need to be.
Just getting back into MAG after a few months out. Add me on PSN , dont have many people on my friends list who play MAG. PSN: hasj1990
ill add you, this is the FPS im currently playing
Will do! but with the imminent arrival of Killzone 3 over the horizon i cant say il have much enthusiasm for good ol MAG.
Play it everyday. Currently on Valor though. Vetting to Raven. Add me.
just got my platinum last night !!!!! 1 of the few shooters i think next to Warhawk and Resistance Fall of Man that made me spend an insane amount of time lol and i have seen a lot of new people on the game lately , dont know if its because the game is cheaper now or its because of PS+
I bought the game last week because I got Move for christmas. I guess that's why a lot of other people are buying it lately, just to see how an FPS works with MOVE. And yeah it's really cheap too, got it for £14 in GAME!
yea its kinda hard at the beginning , i was messing my kill death ratio a lot but i got used to the Move and now its really fun to play the game with it
Because im sure you could fit 256 people on shipment or rust, if i stacked the player on top of each other, 3 times over. MAG was great, but for me there simply wasn't a large enough community, I had it for 8 months and the community got smaller every day. It is a great game and if it had the attention COD had, it would truly show it's colors and shine.
Forum post, from a forum not even related to the game. Dubious at best.
I got MAG for $10. Its a good shooter, but I knew it wouldn't last long simply because MultiOnly games rarely succeed unless on PC. If anyone plays add me : Gunchrote
I wouldnt say that, MAG has lasted over a year and it has been picking up again before and after this past christmas! I wouldnt say its a brilliant game but its a good effort and I always like to see Gameplay taking priority over graphics not that I dislike good graphics. Multiplayer only on consoles would do very well, It just hasnt been done well except for MAG.
I own this game and even though I don't play it as much, I love how much they support their games!
Well,you could take 256 players with guns,place them in an empty swimming pool and count money in an abandoned warehouse in between. You could attempt a 256 player conflict that despite its shortcomings,bodes well for the future of Fps games. Either/Or
i like MAG a lot but there's things i really don't like about it too that i wish were changed and it seriously needs more "free" maps.
It's my favourite online game right now, I bought it in september (cause of move) and love it. spent just over 130 hours so far. vet'd from raven to sevr, gonna jump to valor after that.
I know theres gonna be a whole bunch of people on here saying they love MAG and that they play it, but the sales say different and thats why people think the game is gonna get dropped.
well if you get on the game now you should really see a good amount of people playing every night , im actually surprised by the amount of people i have seen lately playing the game
I hope after they are done with Socom 4 they start working on MAG 2 but I hope they save it for the PS4 because if it's on a next gen console it will be better all around.
