MAG & SOCOM: Most Requested Sony Exclusives

TRS writes: "When Sony decided to close down Zipper Interactive last year, the gaming industry lost more than just a longtime developer of PlayStation exclusives. The late Zipper Interactive left behind 2 rather large voids within the shooter genre. As of now, Zipper’s two staple franchises are the most requested video games of all-time on the PlayStation Blog.Share website."

I still play MAG to this day. I was gutted when Zipper went. All my hopes of a MAG 2 went with it. Course they did Unit 13 on Vita and that was good, But again now we wont see a sequel or indeed any DLC for it. MAG may have lacked a huge colour palette or fancy graphics, but the feeling of being in a massive full scale war was fully achieved. Now no one ever wants to play domination, its all team dethmatch...sigh

Sony has Planetside 2. Not really any reason for a MAG 2 when they could just release it on the PS4.

Reverent4106d ago

I love Planetside 2 and everything... but it is extremely pay-to-win. If they port it over to the PS4, there needs to be some serious balancing changes.

TooTall194106d ago

@Reverent everything in PS2 except cosmetic items can be unlocked without paying anything. I use the default weapons often. Good players have created $0 characters and still had good stats.

Why o why4106d ago

congrats on another championship magoo.... van p must be pleased. grudge. .

never got to play mag or socom. I hear they're different but the older ones were better

"Sony has Planetside 2. Not really any reason for a MAG 2 when they could just release it on the PS4."

Sony has both. Best case scenario : Put both on PS4

They should have one or the other preinstalled on all PS4s in my view.

OT - MAG is still my favorite online FPS of the generation. I enjoyed SOCOM4 as well though. I'd love to hear either series is coming to PS4.

C_Menz4106d ago

@Mystic

Why go through the trouble of developing MAG 2 when the same principle is already done in Planetside 2? Doesn't make any sense from a business standpoint.

As far as pay to win. PS2 is more "pay to skip the grind". You can only buy weapons to unlock them faster, and in most cases the stock weapons are good enough that you don't need to.

ISNeko4105d ago

Planetside 2 is by no means a replacement for MAG.

@"I love Planetside 2 and everything... but it is extremely pay-to-win."

no it's not

OhReginald4105d ago

@rev....

Planetside 2 is NOT pay 2 win by any means.

Reverent4105d ago

@OhReginald and shutUpAndTakeMyMoney, I didn't exactly mean it that way. Like C_Menz said, it's "pay to skip the grind". And I personally don't like this gameplay design because unless it's an RPG, I hate grinding. I know not everyone is the same way, but even so, it's still my opinion.

Wow us that what it has become? Only team deathmatch...

I wished it didn't dwindle in its popularity because it is the most massive online game I've ever played.

I still hope for a MAG2, even if the original devs are no longer around.

Join us!

In Dust 514, which has gotten very good since the original Beta. Although small enough in scale...still awesome

Big Clans created in MAG are moving over to Dust

MysticStrummer4106d ago

I had fun with the Dust 514 beta, and the connectivity with EVE is cool, but it's not nearly as epic as MAG. I'm sure I'll try out Dust when it releases, as long as I have the HD space available. They need to hurry up and release it too, with PS4 on the horizon.

Larry L4106d ago

@mystic

The game IS released and has been for a while. Go download it and start playing. It's the full game, it's just going to continue evolving, which is why the beta label is still there. That's even if it's still labelled beta, they may have already taken that tag off, I'm not sure.

But regardless, the game has been released for public consumption. Eat up.

MysticStrummer4106d ago (Edited 4106d ago )

@Larry - Hmmm I'm not seeing anything online that says Dust 514 was released. I know anyone can play it now, but that's not the same thing if it's an open beta. TBA 2013 is still the release date, and not long ago I saw a story on N4G that said it would be released later this year. I'll check it out, but Defiance is going to take up a big chunk of my HD next week.

DeadlyFire4105d ago

Its possible for MAG 2 to exist either way its owned by Sony I believe. :)

Planetside 2 can co-exist with it just fine.

Dust 514 isn't bad either. Its coming to PS4 at somepoint. CCP already stated they plan for it to live as long as possible across every new Playstation.

Here's a link to a MAG 2 Poll (from the article)
Log in with your PSN account and vote it up if you want MAG 2, probably won't amount to anything but there's no harm in trying!

SOOOO voted. Thank you for sharing that.

Btw, +bubbled for "Helpful".

rezzah4106d ago

Thanks a lot. Helpful +

Drekken4106d ago

I had some really fun times playing MAG with my buddies. MAG could have been a flagship title... it was really ambitious for the hardware. It had some tweaks that it needed, but it was the best team shooter on the PS3.

Qrphe4105d ago

Put MAG on PS+, that's all I'm asking for and it's realistic.

Veneno4105d ago

God damn right we want another MAG!

I miss MAG. Those were some of the best times gaming.

@ RetroGam3r....MAG servers are still up? If so Im on tonight. Gotta start downloading those maps now. I stopped playing after I got the Platinum.

BitbyDeath4106d ago

Plz add Motorstorm and Warhawk to this list.
