MAG Beta Test for Qore Subscribers Launching Thursday

Kevin Furuichi's Avatar + Posted by Kevin Furuichi on Sep 14, 2009 // Executive Producer, PlayStation Network

Here’s an update about the status of the MAG Public Beta email vouchers. The first wave of voucher codes for the MAG Beta will be e-mailed to all current Qore subscribers beginning today and continuing over the next few days. Follow the instructions so that you’ll be ready to download the Beta and jump in when the test starts this Thursday, September 17. The email subject line will be:

“You’re in: Welcome to the MAG Beta”

And, the email voucher will look like this:

Qore MAG Beta

Remember, you only have 4 days left to get in on the action as the Public Beta entry deadline for Qore subscribers is this Thursday, September 17. Please allow at least 5 business days for delivery once you subscribe.

Qore subscribers will have access to the MAG Beta Test from September 17 through November 8. The hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 10am-1pm and 5-8pm Pacific (PDT).

Once again, here are the eligibility requirements:

  • The Qore MAG Beta offer is open to Qore subscribers only, not to single episode purchasers.
  • All Beta invitations are restricted to persons 18 years and older.
  • We must have your current, valid e-mail address on file.
  • You must be opted in to receiving communications from PlayStation.
  • Vouchers will be sent to the e-mail associated with the PSN account that purchased the Qore subscription, not to any sub-accounts.

You can update your e-mail address and check your notification preferences via your profile on PS.com or on the PS3 itself under Account Management/Account Information. Be sure that you have “opted in” to receive our communications.

We hope you enjoy the MAG Beta, and don’t forget to leave your feedback at Beta Central by following the instructions in the voucher e-mail. As this is a Beta is a work-in-progress and not representative of the final game, your input is vital.

Question about first wave beta users. All the people in the original beta do get to participate in the new beta and do we have to re-download the beta? Thanks for any information you can give me :)

    The good news is that your name was on the list of Qore subscribers, and you were recently sent a voucher. The bad news is that your email is invalid or you have opted out of communications from SCEA, so the voucher could not be delivered.

    Please contact SCEA Consumer Services at: http://www.us.playstation.com/support
    Click on the “Contact Customer Services” tab at the top of the page. On the email screen, select “PlayStation Network” as the Product and “Voucher Codes” as the Topic. Once Customer Services receives your inquiry, they will reply and supply your voucher code.

Well I’ve got the qore code and it isn’t working.
I’ve gone to the redeem code made sure the input is in caps like on the code and all I get is this code may have already been redeemed etc.
Feeling rather peed off.

Everyone needs to chill out and take the time to read the post. Here’s a lot of questions people been asking hope this helps everyone.

1. If your subscribed on or by the 17th you will get a code but please allow 5 days after you subscribe to receive a code

2. Code are sent out in waves so even if your a day 1 subscriber don’t freak out if you havn’t got a code you will get it by thursday

3. Your code will NOT work until the 17th so don’t waste your time trying to redeem because its going to come up as invalid.

4. If September is your last issues and you downloaded it you WILL receive a code just be patient

5. The Beta is restricted to certain times and days check your email for details.

6. Everyone who was in the private beta will roll over to the Qore beta.

Hope this helps people and remember SEND FEEDBACK don’t just play. Your in the Beta for a reason to contribute your time and report any bugs to help make this game better :)

If you were a member of the Private Beta and still get a Qore code can you give it to a friend who is of age or is it locked to your account

Oh great. I bought the annual subscription of qore thinking I could get my code. Well, I guess not since I’m not 18 yet. Awesome, best news all day.

+ Heavyneto on September 15th, 2009 at 9:53 am said:

So, I’ve just received the Beta voucher in my e-mail, but, for my surprise, when I tried to redeem the code I got a message saying it is wrong or expired. I am pretty sure I’ve entered the right code, and since I just received it I don’t think its spired, so I ask: What could possibly be wrong? Could I inform my code and receive another one in the same e-mail account? I was really hoping I could have it working, and the Betas are the main reason why I subscribe to Qore, so, if its not working, why keep the subscription? Well… I hope you guys at PLAYSTATION BLOG can help me find the answers. Thanks!

Is there any way that there could be another beta test time later at night? I got to school on the morning and work at night, I don’t get home until 9:45 in chicago time. So in reality i only get about 15 minutes of playing time. Please Sony pull some strings for the busy people out there, we really want to contribute into making games for the superior system.

My friend told me about the Qore beta if you have a subscription. He also told me that I would have to buy a years subcription to get the Mag beta code. But, im skeptical about almost everything. Luckily I didnt waste my money to get the Mag beta code because I wouldnt have been able to use it with those silly hours that were given to Qore subscribers. This is ridiculous, how could they really think people in any time zone other than PDT could use this. I wouldnt be making an issue of this if it werent for the fact that Qore and PSN hadnt made a buck off of the fact that people wanted the MAG beta code. They should be ashamed of themselves.

+ terranwolf on September 15th, 2009 at 12:09 pm said:

Considering that Kevin Furuchi is now assuming we can’t even enter in the codes until the 17th..

..which is pretty dumb in the first place; they should have just emailed everyone on the 17th, or, made the codes work just fine but restrict the download until the 17th.

Anyone before that reply by Kevin (on page 5 of the comments) is pretty ignorant if they were acting like it’s obvious the codes don’t work until the 17th. Nowhere in the email does it mention when the codes work, but rather when the beta STARTS. Entirely different objects.

In short, the email should have been worded better instead of causing mass confusion.


228

+ XTheFoolX on September 15th, 2009 at 12:19 pm said:

True, they didnt read their emails thoroughly. That means they probably didnt read the days or times of availability either, meaning their will be more posts when they find this out the hard way.

+ Android66 on September 15th, 2009 at 2:22 pm said:

@226:
Correct me if I am wrong, but 10am-1pm; 5pm-8pm Pacific is the same as:
11am-2pm; 6-9pm Mountain
12-3pm; 7-10pm Central
1-4pm; 8-11pm Eastern

How is that a ridiculous time for everyone but Pacific? In fact, if you work until 6pm, you actually get an hour *less* to play if you are in the Pacific zone. Everyone else gets three hours after work, and if you take lunch from 12-1, you can sneak an hour in there too…except East Coast (take a late lunch!) :)

My God there are a lot of dumb people that read this blog. I feel so sorry for the people that run this site. If any of you bothered to read the e-mail, this blog post or many of these threads, you might get the picture that you have to wait until Sept 17 to get the game and play it. If its not working now, wait until Sept 17th.

PLEASE WAIT UNTIL SEPTEMBER 17th BEFORE ENTERING YOUR CODE TO SEE IF IT WORKS. DO NO POST ANY MORE THAT YOUR CODE DOESN’T WORK!
