PSXE Poll Update: PS3 Owners Lukewarm On MAG
It was one of the most ambitious and anticipated PlayStation 3 exclusives of the generation, but it seems that most of our readers aren't overly excited about it.
As most critics have noted, the game is hardly a masterpiece right out of the gate but as we indicated in our review, the game's future potential is absolutely off the charts. It has a few issues but few that can't be fixed by future updates and patches and besides, online projects are more like living, breathing experiences that continue to grow and expand over time. It's why I believe that by the end of this year, MAG will be one of the finest online games available. But for the time being, most of our readers aren't interested at all, while many others are planning to wait for a while before diving in. Only about 1/4 of those polled were definitely going to buy it this past week when it launched, but I suppose that's not exactly surprising. Personally, I think it's an excellent addition to the PS3's library of exclusive titles but right now, it's hard to call it a "must-buy" unless you're really into that genre.
Moving on to this week, we want to know how many of you have lost faith in Final Fantasy XIII. The hugely anticipated RPG has gone through a veritable gauntlet of negative and questionable press over the past month, and it seems that many gamers - even long-time fans - are suddenly very suspicious. The question is, has all this reversed your decision to buy the game, or are you merely a little concerned? Are you at least going to try it or have you decided to pass on to something else, like White Knight Chronicles? The latter launches this week, by the way. Vote away!
