MAG for Playstation Plus (Playstation Blog.Share)

[ Edited ]
26 replies 1081 views Edited Dec 30, 2012

I stumbled upon this http://share.blog.us.playstation.com/ideas/2012/08/14/magplaystation-plus/

 

Thread on the MAG forums here: http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/MAG-Discussion/You-Want-MAG-2-Get-MAG-on-PS-First-VOTE-HERE/m...

 

As an avid MAG player (even after all these years, betas, etc), I think it would be pretty cool if MAG was added as a Playstation Plus game (although I already own it).

 

So, what do people say about this?

This was actually suggested not too long ago. I personally don't mind any of the games we recieve, I'm alright with whatever it is. I'd like to try MAG. I try most of the games for a short while and stop playing them anyways. The games I've recieved with Plus are on my console for those days I have nothing else to do.

On MAG (provided you can have the patience to make it past the early levels), is a great game to get into. Although people have said it has a steep learning curve (and in my opinion, I generally suck at video games), it is the one game I actually consider myself proficient at.

 

Regarding your last point, that is exactly how I feel (with the exception of Borderlands). Though I still love Plus <3

Love MAG, this would reel in a couple of new players.
"RNGsus, hallowed be thy name. Thy digits come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in the Tower. Give us this day our daily shards. And forgive us our dismantles, as we forgive those who have dismantled before us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the Cryptarch. For thine is the loot table, the engrams, and the luck, forever and ever."
~Amen

Already got the platinum trophy and I am very proud of it too. (View my blog (link in signature) for my platinum journey). It sure would be cool to get on MAG and see thousands of players playing in the queues if it was on Plus. But realistically I don't think Plus would get players playing this game.

I'm only halfway to the plat. Would be possible if it's available on PS+ and the game modes become somewhat active again. It's a cheap game at the moment and would probably get a lot of people hooked on it.

I only briefly tried MAG & would like the opportunity to do so again & perhaps get more "into it" this time.

FANTASTIC IDEA !!!!

 

I bought MAG when it came out, but had to get rid of it for one reason or another (probably needed money for something). MAG was a HIGHLY under-rated FPS, and has alot of revolutionary features. It came out at a bad time on top of having to deal with the negative talk from internet fanboys. I think it would be a great game for Sony to put into the hands of Plus gamers, SO many gamers totally overlooked or avoided the game without even trying the finished product. It was a good first person SOCOM basically and could gain a secondary cult following of Plus gamers.

 

I hope Sony's listening here. Having MAG as a permanent part of the IGC along with LBP2 and Infamous 2 as real essentials, could be a real coup for Sony and Plus. Being such an epic example of multi-player gaming, it would just be a genius idea for Sony to keep it in the IGC indefinitely and keep the servers up for a couple extra years.

Do people still play MAG? Last time I played it was about a year ago and even then I had trouble getting into a match.
