MAG on sale 99 cents pre-owned at gamestop - Friday, April 05, 2013 10:28 PM ( #1 )
Thought I'd let some of you know, the ps3 exclusive MAG is on sale at gamestop for a dollar. Definitely worth it in my opinion, just picked it up today myself. http://www.gamestop.com/p...FU6jOli6Vi6Yg2XbaO12ZQ It's got a 76% on metacritic - http://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-3/mag No online pass crap either, so don't worry about not being able to play it.

there are people still paying this? To me this game was awesome but just like all online games on the PS3 it had a bad rep so people didn't care about it. Even Uncharted which has really awesome online most people just ignore it and say that it is crap.

Indeed, I find it a shame at the quality wasted simply because someone gives it bad rep. I absolutely loved the KZ2 mulitplayer, MAG and uncharted, but no one else did

Only multiplayer game I cared about on PS3 (Twisted Metal) died out within 6 months. Thankfully I don't have to worry about TF2 servers being empty anytime soon.

Mag was a horrible game. The gun play was boring. I would pick it up for that price if you want a paperweight. The level design pretty much ensured you would not have a huge battle, play planetside 2 instead. The game is much better and requires skill and strategy. Not to mention it is free.

Would've been nice if that was the price when I decided to pick it up.

Planetside offers much more than MAG.

Game should come with money paying for the petrol to drive to the gameshop to pick it up.

For once I agree with Kon, even though I doubt he played MAG or Planetside 2 more than a couple hours.

What Kon said implies that the games are similar. They are not. One is a game base on logistics and the other is cod with a few more players.

that's not true... COD games are all about either campin or running around like a wacko while killing people by spraying some shots but you can't win a match on MAG like that because: 1. the maps are too big, 2. the game's mostly objective based, 3. you just can't fight a bunch of people while being alone like in COD where you just spray your gun and have a 3-4 kill streak in a matter of milliseconds.


So in these regards MAG and Planetside are very much alike.  I think you're just prejudiced due to the fact that everybody keeps repeating  that the PS3's online is bad so many times that the placebo is already there doing its job.

PS3 online sucks balls though. PS3 exclusive players suck even more.

They are not alike. With MAG I have had loads of success just running around and killing people. It has objectives in the same way that COD has objectives. In planetside 2 success does not come in numbers it comes in communication. The time I spent on Planetside 2 was in an outfit where we had infantry squads, air squads and armor squads each with a squad leader communicating with other squads. Meaning that air could scout ahead and tell infantry of incoming threats while armour harrases the enemy base. These are huge groups of people that operate in a similar way to the army. Saying Planetside is like MAG is like saying ARMA is like MAG. Our outfit was also communicating with other outfits and the only way we were able to beat numbers three times our own was this communication.


Running around solo in Planetside 2 makes no difference to the battlefield. Outfits and inter outfit operations are what determine the success of your faction.

PS3 online is great. No mics means 90% less obnoxious twats that occupy xbl.

Ill take what the ps3 has any day over that.

This. I was extensively in the beta for MAG. Progression was slow for guns (not as slow as PS2 however), gunplay was rather weak. Because the way it's structured, you never fight against more than a squad or two, so there's no point in showing off that 256 player count.
