Are you ready to be one of us come January 26, 2010? Then get pre-ordering soldier!

SVER preorder

Exclusive S.V.E.R In-Game Character

This exclusive S.V.E.R. (Seryi Volk Executive Response) Hazard Trooper comes with the unique Hazard Camo Pattern, Hazard Improved Ballistic Vest, and the Hazard Improved Helmet. S.V.E.R. operatives live for the chance to achieve the honor they believe they deserve.

Thanks Chris.

Like a couple other readers, wondering if this is region specific for US or any region ?

+ MaverickStar7 on September 8th, 2009 at 3:15 pm said:

the people that win with these are the game stores and the game developer. the customer loses because now he misses out on certain things and is forced to choose one over the other. Should I have to order from amazon to get a preferred bonus when there is a gamestop down the street, but they dont get the bonus I want?

Ewww now i gotta pre-order at Gamecrazy….. Thanks i think :(

:(
Nothing for bestbuy? :(
This is a hard choice because I have yet to decide on which faction I will side with. Do we have to pre-order before a certain date to get this characters specific skins?

i know this may come from left field,but are there any in game female characters.i only ask because my girlfriend and her friends love 1st person shooters.she has already preordered mag and cod5 and the problem that she has is there are hardly any games with female character skins.do developers really think there aren’t female soldiers or something?can anyone shed some light on this.thanks

Hey do u hav 2 chose only 1. Or 1 PMC? Cuiz i wud wnt a PMC, Home Space, & Beta. I’m confused . If u wnt 2 get beat do u hav 2 pre-order on the link below beta. or Does EVERY pre-order get it?

I am against pre-order stuff.

Quick question about the Qore beta. If my last episode is this month, will I still be able to play the beta?


63

+ Pandanaut on September 8th, 2009 at 3:55 pm said:

This is just getting annoying.

I pre-order almost everything from Amazon, and every time they get the shaft. It’s either a video or something for Playstation Home. Meanwhile, Gamestop always gets the best stuff and they charge out of the ass (ECA discount doesn’t work there).

I think it’d be for the best just to have every outlet get the same pre-order stuff. All this does is cause annoyance for those of us who go to one outlet specifically.

+ seph1r0th00 on September 8th, 2009 at 3:55 pm said:

I don’t understand why all new game pre-order bonuses have to go through GameStop. GameStop is a P.O.S. retail store with horrible customer service. Why oh why does everyone use GameStop for pre-order bonuses?

And on top of that Amazon & gamecrazy? I want the SVER character but there is no way I’m going to GameStop. Guess I won’t be pre-ordering MAG :(

+ spunnups on September 8th, 2009 at 3:57 pm said:

Exclusive Pre Order Bonsuses SUCK! What if I want both of the exclusive costumes? S.O.L.? That’s crap! I’d give this a 0/5 stars if I could.

+ Black_Ryuk on September 8th, 2009 at 4:07 pm said:

Darn….I want the Raven outfit….but there doesnt seem to be a game crazy around here…


67

+ TheConfidenceMan on September 8th, 2009 at 4:16 pm said:

What utterly stupid bonuses. How are we supposed to know which faction we like the best if only a select few can play it beforehand?

The only way would be to preorder for the beta, screwing you on the other stuff…

This crap makes me want to just wait and pick it up used.

+ BOSANSKI_VOJNIK on September 8th, 2009 at 4:20 pm said:

I Will Pre-Order this game late September, because that is when Game Stop is getting the Codes. There is to many good games coming out these months, and I want all of them… Uncharted, Cod:MW2, NFS:Shift, And MAG. All games I will be getting.


69

+ TwinDad on September 8th, 2009 at 4:29 pm said:

Why punish people who buy your game? Sony, please see Atlus on how to do a correct release. The first printing gets bonus items such as soundtracks. Pre-Orders get actual useful stuff like an art book or plushie. Demon Souls made me pre-order, Sony pre-orders tell me to wait as it will be DLC in a few weeks.

+ katsuo7171 on September 8th, 2009 at 4:30 pm said:

From 10/12 to 11/20 do the people in the closed beta automatically get in like the Qore Open beta or do we have to pre-order still.

For the most part these aren’t really good pre-order bonuses. I guess I’ll get the home one. But does the Home one come with the furniture or just the personal space?


71

+ ExPresident on September 8th, 2009 at 4:48 pm said:

Gamestop sucks but apparently enough people continue shopping there because they can afford to get the pre-order bonuses unlike other stores, not sure why.

Why isn’t Valor ready for pre-order yet? And thats pretty stupid Sony if I can’t get the HOME space for pre-ordering Valor or vice versa. Who is gonna pre-order more than 1 copy just for these “bonuses”?


72

+ Hradekal on September 8th, 2009 at 5:08 pm said:

Once again, Zipper is one step behind the ball. These pre-order bonuses are getting old. Hey Zipper, how about you go back to what made SOCOM great instead of making a Modern Warfare look a like?

I saw in Playstation home that we would be able to get the beta because of the quore suscribe

+ mafecto on September 8th, 2009 at 5:29 pm said:

the new ps3 case is awesome.

also, great pre-order incentives.

this game should have a headset bundle as well.


75

+ bball230 on September 8th, 2009 at 5:46 pm said:

Can you guys PLEASE bundle this game with the official PS bluetooth headset..

1) Its nearly ESSENTIAL for everyone in this game to use a headset.

2) I really need 1 and i will deff pick this game up if you guys bundle it with a bluetooth headset. PLEASE!

3) it is Multiplayer only.. and soo far ever multiplayer only game released for ps3 (excluding little psn games) has had a Bluetooth headset included.

Pretty effin sweet. I really can’t wait to play MAG. But I need to still fix or buy me a PlayStation 3


78

+ Dragon_of_snow on September 8th, 2009 at 6:08 pm said:

after reading it at gamestop, all Qore people will cease to be able to play on OCT 8th unless you also preorder, Gamestop preorder people will start on the 9th of OCT. and all the items are given, the unique costumes for all three PMCs. and the home space. dont yall read around the web? but guell that means i dont have to subsrcibe to qore now. so ill wait till my next check and just preorder. i want the cool gear.


79

+ BrazilianSniper on September 8th, 2009 at 6:23 pm said:

Why Amazon always get the short end of the stick, a PS Home place, really?

I already had to pre-order Uncharted 2 from gamestop because of the beta, now this too? Although, I want be a Valor, so the pre-order store remain unknown, but they’ll probably give this to gamestop as well.

I wish they could stop with those different BS bonuses and make the same bonus for each store.

+ Ninju2006 on September 8th, 2009 at 6:31 pm said:

Nah, after playing the closed beta the game REALLY needs to be bundled with a mic. Sure there was people with mics, but the really good battles were those with people dishing out orders for support and covering warnings. If ZIPPER can change some features of the chat system the game can be extremely well organized and squads to platoons can communicate effectively. Going to stick with Raven in the full game…let the Valor vs Raven rivalry continue!! It’s all fun and games until the BS S.V.E.R came in and divided us…tsk :P
(BTW – Do note during beta and real game, you will only be allowed to make one character for one faction, if you want to switch you have to delete your character in order to switch factions. Do note also, you will start from level 1, however all other stats will be carried over. That’s why it’s important to pick your loyalty early on!!)

@62
If your an annual subscriber and you still get the September edition, you should still be able to get into the MAG Qore Beta session. If you were in the Closed Beta, you will automatically be carried over.

“Then get pre-ordering soldier”? I’m going to need the Valor info first. How soon is that info coming? Better be soon. ;)

I’m in.

+ Pelt_Hunter on September 8th, 2009 at 6:47 pm said:

This is a definite pre-order. Not until December probably though, it’s way too far away considering the virtual truckload that is coming this holiday season, it is so sweet to own a Sony machine this season. Uncharted 2, Brutal Legend, Borderlands, NG:Sigma 2, Ratchet & Clank, Alpha Protocol, Tekken 6, Fairytale Fights, Blur & Modern Warfare 2 they aren’t all exclusive but thats a great lineup and thats not even all of them!!

+ LeonResidentEvil on September 8th, 2009 at 6:49 pm said:

256 players……..256 players man thats crazy…I remember when all you could fit in a room was 32 players in killzone 2 and you were DARN happy about that now look you get to kill 255 of your buddys seeing as your number 256 hehe xD

+ mops_beyond on September 8th, 2009 at 6:51 pm said:

I want to be excited for this so badly, I even bought SOCOM on PS3 hoping it carried even ‘some’ of the originals spark with it… but nothing so far has made me want to jump up and run out for the pre-order, I just want to see something that WOWs me and that hasn’t happened yet. It looks competent and to a degree fun, certainly interesting but… I still have reservations I guess…

+ Israel1948 on September 8th, 2009 at 6:58 pm said:

Do you HAVE to pre-order from those stores/sites to get that certain bonus item? I want the Home bonus item, but I hate pre-ordering games from Amazon -.-.

And when do we get the Home space for it?


88

+ DarkFire45 on September 8th, 2009 at 7:06 pm said:

It’s not a public beta if you have to pay for it. This game is going to have massive network problems when it launches simply because they aren’t properly testing their servers with a true open beta. If they would have made the open beta free for everyone they would’ve gotten a much better idea on how much strain the severs can take before lagging out the wazoo, but for some reason they want everyone who plays the game at launch to hate it.

And don’t get me started on pre-order bonuses. They’re all a load of [DELETED].

+ Kenshin71 on September 8th, 2009 at 7:24 pm said:

Bundle this game with a headset. In fact all first party FPS/TPS should be bundled with headsets. Even if it’s something like the Jabra that came with Warhawk.

I’m going to be honest I will not buy this if I cannot play some sort of demo or beta because it does look good but I’m tired of wasting 64 dollars (with my sales tax) at a time on games I end up thinking are just okay. And most of my friends are the same.
