MAG Beta Invites Going Out Now

It could redefine the nature of the online multiplayer experience; with up to 256 players on any given map at one time, the revolutionary concept of MAG has turned a lot of heads.

We knew Zipper Interactive would be conducting a beta test, and we had heard such a test might kick off as early as this month. Well, we just received an example of a beta invite, which asks you to log into the PlayStation Network with a special code, and explain why you should be a part of the beta phase. This does not guarantee you a spot, but at least it gives you the opportunity; we don't know how many Zipper plans to let in, but we're hoping it's many...many, many, many. The e-mail invite contains information about the game, the code you need, and the following statement:

"We are looking for a few good leaders to help us shape the most ambitious shooter ever. Click the link below, enter the access code and tell us why you deserve to be among them."

Now, while it may seem like a good idea, we suggest not writing an essay. We get the feeling that what you write may not matter as much as your prompt response; in other words, it's more about a first-come, first-served thing. Of course, we doubt you'll get picked if you say something ridiculous, but really, it should be enough that you show your immediate interest. We're hoping to be alongside the other beta testers when the test kicks off, but they don't provide us with a start date. We'll let you know when that information arrives...

Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the alien nation.
Where everything isn't meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
For that's enough to argue.

i didn't write it from the start cause some ppl(yanks).lol may find it offensive

how do we get the invite, just for being signed to the PSN or do we have to be signed up to a MAG website or something?

I thought PS Underground was dead. Didn't they merge with playstation.com? I'm still a part of that but haven't seen a newsletter in ages.

Right, its just called Playstation Network. I get news letters all the time! maybe when it switched from ps underground it lost all it's subscriptions. Try to join it again, they may send the email twice (doubt it tho)

I will support this game because it innovates, but I won't buy it cause it's not my genre. I can't imagine a noob like me can last 2 seconds when 128 guns are pointing at me.

nice im thinking of subscribing to qore so i can get access to the betas.
but than it is kind of a waste because i cant afford to download it every month otherwise ill go over my limit, and to download it once im over my limit takes over 10 hours.
no joke i tried it last month.
i wish they would start compressing there content, the bloody batman AA demo has almost put me over my limit, ive got 2GBs to last the rest of the month.

dont bother subscribing to qore just to get beta's coz it dont work like that,they only chuck things like beta's in there every once in a while,so dont be thinking you're garranteed a beta place...and as for all you ppl saying "i should get a code coz they need loads of players" well trust me they have loads of players already and it wouldnt take 2 mins to get 100s more
