MAG Meet-up at PAX Tomorrow Night!

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Sep 03, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

As you read this, we’re off to Seattle for this weekend’s Penny Arcade Expo. The highlight (for us, at least), will be Friday’s MAG-themed PAX Meet-up, where we’ll be seeing some of you tomorrow night. We’re particularly excited that this’ll be the first time beta participants will be able to engage in a full-on, Only-On-PlayStation, 256-player mega-battle.

MAG Cologne Renders

We’re so excited, in fact, that we’d like some of you readers to join us even if you can’t make it to the Emerald City and our Now-Sold-Out-Even–Though-We-Weren’t-Selling-Tickets Event.

No matter where you may be this holiday weekend, we want you to join the Shadow War with Zipper Interactive developers and your fellow PS.Blog readers, so we’ll be giving away some super-exclusive MAG closed beta codes throughout the day via Twitter!

Here’s what you need to know:

Contest Instructions:

  • Follow us on Twitter!
  • The PlayStation Twitter account will tweet out 4 MAG-related questions throughout the day (9/3/2009). That’s TODAY.
  • The first 6 people to @reply the @SonyPlayStation account with the correct answer for each question will win a MAG beta code.
  • There will be 6 winners for each question – 24 winners total.
  • PlayStation will direct message the codes to the winners by the end of the day.

Giveaway Terms and Conditions:

  • US residents only.
  • The beta code winners will still be under a NDA (aka, you can’t write or blog about your experiences, or take screenshots, etc. We’ll know it was you!!)
  • PlayStation.Blog will giveaway 24 beta codes on Thursday, Sept. 3rd via Twitter.
  • One MAG question will be tweeted every hour starting at 10:00 am PT.
  • First 6 followers to @reply the @SonyPlayStation account with the correct answer get a beta code.

Good luck to everyone, those who win are going to LOVE domination (256 player mode). It’s crazy, but soooo much fun.

I’m not a big twitter user, so is this how we reply? “@reply @SonyPlaystation [answer here]” or just “@SonyPlaystation [answer]” ?

+ packy17 on September 3rd, 2009 at 8:24 am said:

It’s just @SonyPlaystation. Twitter-speak is becoming bad.

Anyhow, I’ll be on the lookout for those questions!

Hi Jeff
Sorry to keep asking you this but I would really appreciate your advice on this.

Should we give up any hope of a localized PS3 version of Tales of Vesperia? Or is there still a small chance of it happening? I really would like to know what my options are.

Great! now you have me refreshing twitter every 60 seconds!

+ HawkEyes1 on September 3rd, 2009 at 8:55 am said:

Moderators aren’t you forgetting about just your regular PS3 users?..I don’t have a subscription to Qore and seriously I don’t like it..$2.99 is silly! This should be free you people by all means should concentrate on starting SONY LIVE like Xbox360 charge us to use your servers..Like for a 1 year subscription $30.00 and 2 $45.00 perhaps?..Just giving you ideas Sony..

+ Zookey on September 3rd, 2009 at 8:57 am said:

So….I am subscriber to Qore—will we be under NDA too or does this beta start earlier than the one we are on or something?

+ newsense2008 on September 3rd, 2009 at 8:59 am said:

i still don’t get it. do we email the answer to some @playstation address or what ?

+ zombie9 on September 3rd, 2009 at 8:59 am said:

I don’t use twitter or facebook so I guess I’m SOL. And I’m a huge PS FAN. (I’ll just stay here on the blog). :)

+ Myzz617Bean on September 3rd, 2009 at 9:04 am said:

I use FB no twitter and i reserved the game but never got a BETA key :(

+ PhantomMenace84 on September 3rd, 2009 at 9:04 am said:

US Only? :( Well… good thing I am going to the PAX Meet up!

+ intelligentboy on September 3rd, 2009 at 9:29 am said:

Hey Jeff are Canadian residents eligible? P.S. I really want those beta codes!!!!!!


42

+ SOOPERGOOMAN187 on September 3rd, 2009 at 9:32 am said:

Any chance while at the meet up you would have a pax psn name so some of us could get to see whats going on at the meetup “LIVE”. You know like the PSN “Video Chaterviews” you have here on the blog. That would be sick to be able to talk to a dev live. I mean us Socom fans LOVE Zipper. We absolutely do, atleast I do. They made the only games that were the reason for me to play PlayStation. Can’t wait for the Beta. Take my mind off alot of things.

Tomorrow is the First Day of the Rest of My Life.

+ CHAOTIC- on September 3rd, 2009 at 9:39 am said:

Man im gonna miss out on the first 4 tweet questions so ill have to be on the ball for the last two…i hope i win because two weeks is a long time to wait for the public beta


44

+ CapinChronic on September 3rd, 2009 at 9:40 am said:

@40 Its for us residents only …Canada never get to participate in the community events on the blog or any other event for that matter … sorry dude… if you want a beta code go subscribe to qore now!


45

+ DropD on September 3rd, 2009 at 9:47 am said:

just hand out the codes, who has time for all this twitter nonsense?


46

+ s1vrNb1ck on September 3rd, 2009 at 9:50 am said:

Looking forward to receiving the code ;)


47

+ SketchyMidnight on September 3rd, 2009 at 10:00 am said:

So how does @reply work?

I followed the account. So when you Tweet the MAG questions I just Tweet @SonyPlaystation and post the answer?


48

+ Snipo on September 3rd, 2009 at 10:01 am said:
