Pre-Order MAG At 7-Eleven, Receive Recruitment Kit

Yeah, we know what you're thinking: "since when do we do any gaming transactions at 7-Eleven?" Well, if you're one of many who can't wait for MAG, you might want to pay 'em a visit.

If you reserve your copy of Zipper Interactive's massive 256-player online multiplayer experience at 7-Eleven this month, you'll receive an exclusive recruitment kit and poster. You'll find a brief history of the Shadow War that all three factions of the game are involved in (those factions are "PMCs" or "Private Military Corporations"), and a breakdown of the relevant skill sets, reputations and overall purpose. Are you more of the traditional, honorable soldier at heart (Valor)? Are you into the extremely aggressive, almost over-the-top nature of S.V.E.R.? Or would you rather be a member of the technologically elite squad known as Raven? This pre-order offer is exclusive to US gamers and of course, it only relates to 7-Eleven stores that will carry the game; if you need help locating the nearest location, check here. To drink in more details, head on over to the PlayStation Blog and learn more about pre-order incentives. Some of you may have been lucky enough to participate in the beta test, which only recently concluded and if so, you know what to expect...if not, keep waiting patiently.  Oh, just try.

MAG is slated to arrive on January 23, which isn't a bad launch period. Besides, with the innovation and intensity involved, we imagine a great many gamers will want a taste.

Just the beginning of 7-11 gaming dominance. The console wars didn't start til 7-11 said so...

...and apparently they've sided with Sony and Zipper.

If you don't like the game you could use it as a coaster for your Slurpee (not a dis against MAG, just 7/11 selling games). How many games does 7/11 sell a year?

Do what i do, i preorder from one place then cancel the next day. They dont ask for their perks back. especially gamestop. Thats only if i really want the item. but this i'll pass. not really worth it. well...it wont cost you anything anyway.

i do not have a best buy, gamestop or ebgames any less than 20 minutes from my house. there is a 7-11 2 minutes from my house and is actually the closest gas station to me. i still would not trust a gas station to preorder my video game and believe that they will track that months later when i want to pick it up. not that the morons at gamestop are any smarter than the local gas station employee but at least its their line of business.

id rather go to the eb games that i always go to. i know gamestop owns them and i have a gamestop right down the road from the ebgames i go to. i just think they put the xbots in the gamestop store and the ps3 people (yes there is a girl workin at my eb lol) in the eb store.

pretty crafty of gamestop to buy the competition but not change the store signs so that people think they are going to your competitor but are really shopping at another one of your stores.

I have to say that 7-11 is just an odd business. I think I remember them selling Playstation Network cards lol. That was weird, it's a convenience store! It's like you go into 7-11 and then all of a sudden, "oh look they are selling Playstation 3 games now." then you find a lonely Xbox game on the side XD. If I discriminated any microsoft fan, I didn't mean to lol.

Not related but I thought I'd share the news. I was playing Demon's Souls and bricked my PS3. I have a two and a half year old 80 b/c model. I got to set up my character and as soon as it went to gameplay it just quit. Will only give me flashing red light. I screwed with it for an hour just to get my game disc out. SUPER PISSED!!!!!!!! Just to be clear, I'm not saying "DON'T BUY DEMON'S SOULS, it'll brick your PS3" I'm just saying that if you have an older one be careful, k? I just wasted my entire evening going insane.

that sucks, expecially since uncharted 2 is next week.

be quick and they can probably get it fixed for you before the 13th. That is if your warranty is still good, if not than get ready to spend $150

uhuh... 2 and a half years? 80GB? Well I got my 60GB PS3 2 years, 2 months, and 3 days ago. I got it about two weeks after the 80GB was announced and wasn't even on store shelves. You have any buddies at Sony cutting you deals?

when did the beta end, I could never get past the receiving update screen so I stopped trying but then I heard it was patched, but my connection has been down. I spent twenty five bones to get in this beta, I never even played mag, and in this day and age I almost never buy off the shelf unless I play it first, especially something like mag where its online only.

6 things they need to change for mags release.
1 you die so fuc**ng easily.
seriously deck yourself out with the highest tech most expensive armour like i have.
well today i was playing a game, turned around a corner unloaded 20 bullets into a enemys back he turns around crouches and the millisecond he crouched he killed me.
WWWWWWWWWWWWTTTTTTTTTTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF????????
since when does 20 bullets do less damage than 1.
and thats not the first time its happened, its happened so many friggin times i can not stand playing mag anymore it just pisses me off.

2 theres massive lag or hit detection issues.
ive lost count the amount of times i have ran across a valley to take cover behind a cement wall than im shot THROUGH A CEMENT WALL!
since when can you shoot through walls?
also ive lost count the amount of times ive unloaded a full clip into a enemy than he kills me than he dies.

3 there is not enough objectives on the screen, today i lost 3 games because i had no idea what the hell was going on.
i lost 3 games because in all 3 the enemies blew my bunker up and i did not know they even did that.
the game will tell you to repair it, or say enemies have planted charges but wont tell you where they are.
its going to be hard for me to repair something or defuse charges if i dont know where they are.

4 most of the time your objectives are surrounded by turrets.
im sick to death of trying to get to a objective only to be shot down by a turret.
these things are so bloody strong i fire 3 rockets and unload got knows how many bullets and there STILL not destroyed.

5 you need to have turrets of your own to put down to protect a area, and you need spawn grenades.
something like what killzone 2 has, there perfect.
im sick to death of tracking from one side of a map to the other 1 million times per game.
most of the time i set a charge on the bunker but it gets defused because by the time i track all the way back there my team mates are dead.

6 the points system is stuffed.
you gain more points running around killing people than doing the objective.
every single time i go to do a objective im the only one there.
i even follow my team mates around to see if there even trying to complete the objective and there just running around killing people.
they need to have a system in place, help your team mates complete the objective or rack off.
its extremely annoying when your the only one trying to take a bunker, you against 64 players i wonder whos going to win.

not really a problem but i wish they would open different game play styles.
ive been playing the one where you have to steal 2 vehicles so many times.
ive played demolition like once, every other time its been the find and steal 2 vehicles.
its getting kinda boring doing the same crap day in day out.

addressing your issues
1. were you using a LMG? cause those things are only good at laying down suppressing fire, in CQC an assault rifle will always win, so will the smg, shotgun, and if they are using the semi auto sniper without a scope, it too
2. yeah I'm with you there but this is a beta so hopefully they will have this sorted out before release
3. it all depends on who your leader is, it sucks if your leader doesn't know how to give orders but if he does than you usually win the match. And if a charge is placed or they are capturing a point it should be blinking on the map
4. the turrents are the only thing keeping the attacking team from an easy win. And the only way around them is tactical placement of spawn points (ie your apc)
5. the attacking team doesn't have turrents to again make it possible for the defending team to win. And you choose your own pack set up, so if you want grenades choose grenades. And again the best way to control the battle field is with your apc's. Just make sure that turrents can't shoot them when you park them next to bunkers.
6. yes this is the biggest flaw in the game. Players should get more points for succesfully taking targets.

i was using the R582 i think its called, begins with a R, has the highest damage rate for a assault rifle.
its so frustrating i had to turn it off today.
honestly i died like 20 times in 1 minute.
i really hope they make you more bulletproof, and let you carry around spawn grenades and turrets.
to me those 2 are a MUST!
its impossible to take a bunker half the time because half the team is on the other side of the map and by the time they get there the other half is where they were.
you need to be able to choose where you respawn.
and do you have to have a mic to be squad leader?
when joining the game, i join the queue and select the squad leader box so its yellow but never get selected.
i hope i can start being squad leader because seriously the guys im playing with have no blues clue what their doing.
there squad leader though they never give out orders and never use air strikes.
the turrets are so easy to take out just call in a air strike but only squad and platoon leaders can do that.

Hasn't 7-11 sold the Halo games via preorder in the past?

I remember reading about that, and I also remember seeing those damn Halo 2 and 3 banners every time I drove by the local 7-11.

There is one 7-11 near me here in Jersey; and I know I've seen them in Reynosa, Mexico -- when the wife and I go visit her family in Edinburg, TX, we sometimes go into Mexico.

But as far as my wife goes, 7-11 is no Stripes.
