Jeff Rubenstein, Social Media Manager of Sony, just leaked some information that he thought had already came out related to the MAG Beta.
Doing these kind of promotions will definitely sell annual subscriptions of Qore.
I think this is pretty crappy actually as those of us living outside the US can't subscribe to it. Are we just not wanted? Is the fact Europe was far more loyal to PS3 than the US unnoticed? Even when we paid more for our PS3s? So not only do Sony not allow us the chance to buy Qore at all, not only do they fail to provide anything similar for us but we're kept out of Betas as a result of THEIR actions. Ta for nothing Sony and thanks SCEE for lagging behind every other region in services and opportunities. This kind of US centric thinking really winds us UK/EU gamers up and whatever you might think paying more for everything AND getting shafted over services and shances like this does wear you down aafter a couple of years of it. I do hope there are other ways we in the EU can get in/be invited as surely they want to test servers properly with connsctions from all over the net, no? I couldn't find anything indicating they are though.
So far I give this game a 7.2...pretty buggy. Once this game gets the bugs ironed out, it will probably score a 7.5 at best. This game is like Socom mixed with CounterStrike but isn't good at either.
@ Mr_Controversy Whats your psn ID, cus im in it too. So we can play togetha
So a game with no bugs=0.3 higher than the same game with bugs? Also what else don't you like about it, people really like socom and people really like Counter strike in-fact those two games are some of the most genre defining games for FPS's and tacticalish online FPS/TPS. It may not be your game I've seen footage and it looks really good hopefully I get into the beta.
Well Mastiff, you guys have VidZone and PlayTV, a services that I would love to have over here.. also have Battle Fantasia, Dark Mist, and BD edition's of Pain, Siren, etc.. xD And like Madden10 says, just create a US account, I'm from Mexico and like many many more of my friends over here, watch Qore every month. =)
Guys, "Mr_Controversy" doesn't have a PS3, he's a Xbox fanboy, please, don't feed the troll, just ignore him. BTW, just check his historial of comments, rofl, this guy's hilarious.. "What's an Xbox? Something that gets RROD's and still dominating the PS3 BBQ" "You guys are idiots! Sony isnt' going to release a PS3 within its 3rd year! The PS3 Slim is probably just starting production but I KNOW 100% it's not probable to be released this year." ^^^^^^^ looooltz just 5 days ago xD.. "It's official. Batman Arkham Asylum is Game of the Year!! Sorry Uncharted 2" ^^^^ /facepalm "Are you ****ing kidding me? Gran Turismo has been out since 1997. Halo came out in 2001. Gran Turismo looks like an ant compared to Halo. Halo is this generation's Mario." ^^^^^^^^ Xbot confirmed.
Mr.c i don't even think you have a ps3. and why review a beta? isn't the point of beta to get rid and fix those bugs? i love this game, playing on my buddy ps3
Id admit its a bit "hold on stop wots goin on" when u 1st start playin it - well it was 4 me anyway And 2 b honest i wasnt at all impressed with the early footage shown it had rental slapped all over it - but as ive been lucky enough (thanks Sony) 2 play it ill say its a MUST buy 4 any Fps nut Edit. 1 thing that REALLY REALLY pisses me off is that the servers go off at 9pm (uk time) which is normally around about my gamin time so im not able 2 play it as much as i would like 2
How do you know this was leaked instead of being announced? I think your just making random accusations to get hits...
Just renewed my subscription. I need to try MAG for myself
I just recieved a Beta invite today, and I don't subscribe to Qore. It's not the only way to get a invite.
Looks like I'll be resubscribing. I was hoping I wouldn't need to. I bet their just telling us about this method for now to sell Qore. Just like last year with Socom. In about a week we'll find out you can also get in by pre-order.
I'm an Xbot? Das very funny, lol! Judging from your comments your on the Sony Defense Force, Fanboi! ROFL. Why don't you post my other comments against the Xbox 360 instead of my comments against the PS3? I never said that Mag sucked, I'm just telling you it's buggy. If I see an opposing force hiding behind a wall and I see his rifle sticking through the wall, it tells me I have X-ray vision. :|
Mr_Controversy u still havent given me ur psn id :(
I'm in the beta now, interesting game to say the least. No shortage of action.
I agree. I am enjoying it much more than expected/
I am discovering the fun of the game. At first, it was chaotic and I was getting killed just about every 20 sec. However, once I leveled up and learned the controls (since there is no in game guide)I am starting to have some real fun. It's really not a whole lot like SOCOM, IMO, it is geared more toward keeping that feeling of chaotic battle. (chaotic in a good way, like some of the Killzone 2 multi levels, but MUCH larger)
I have a question, is this for the open beta that starts in september or is this for the closed beta that is out now? (PM me if you know)
As mentioned in the article, this is for the Open Beta that begins September 17th.
i want to try this game so badly
If its an open beta there will be loads of ways to get beta keys, you wont have to pay any crappy subscription. I wouldn't bother.
The beta is solid, there are a couple of lag issues but the it is great, so i guess I'll be in the open beta being a qore subscriber :D
totally agree. my favorite beta so far. can't wait to see this thing launch.
Blah, I will be giving mine away if someone wants it. Not the least bit interested in this. So far QORE is sucking since I renewed.
Well if Qore is the only way to get into the September beta, I wouldn't mind taking your key off your hands since I didn't renew my Qore subscription. (Was one of the original subscribers and after seeing the uninteresting content with information I already know about, and bonus items only being themes, it wasn't enough to draw me back in, even for the discounted $20 lol) Thanks/bubbles if you do end up saying yes :3 and also thanks/bubbles for offering to give it away as well.
It's yours. I will PM you when ever they send out a notification.
But i just give you a bubble, because you maked somebody happy :) BTW.. i dont know if i buy MAG, i think Modern Warfare 2 is enough for me, if i looked back what i play with Modern Warfare 1, thats not count on one hand.. 29 days (with full hours) i played online :)
Hi,if any of you have a spare code or want to gameshare your beta,I am willing to pay you for that or share my stuff with you.PM me if you are interested.Thank you.
Check out the menu system in this Vid http://www.youtube.com/watc... Cant Wait
Sorry but I can't trust on that promise. I still remmember that it was promised to gain Uncharted 2 beta acess by buying Infamous and I did not get and neither got it as an anual subcriber of Qore. I love Sony but I doubt I will be able to get in MAG beta . They make all huge propaganda and in the end if around 1pct of Qore Subscribers gain access to a beta test is a lot of ppl already.
WOW, i'll be getting in then.
There are also supposed to be more "waves" of BETA invites. I am assuming that they will add some after GamesCon. But, maybe they will hold off until Sept. 17th. All I know is there is an entire faction that is unpopulated at this point and I have only had access to 2 different game types. They gotta test it all!!!
i'm in the beta and i have a suspicion that wave 2 will begin very soon. saw something tonight....
the game is good, the gameplay a bit "awkward" as the beta tester mentioned but all around good, the graphics need some touches but after all it's beta. He said that the game will do fine as long as there is isn't a lot of lag and the gameplay controls get tweaked a bit.
sweet I guess I am getting the MAG Beta see you guys on soon
gonna get qore next week fck it
