MAG Meet-up at PAX Tomorrow Night!

122 0

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.

    This will be interesting. I won’t try for a code since I’m already in but I know a few friends who could use the heads up :).

  • WOW. Too bad I work right now!!!

  • Cant make it to PAX . But ill be sure to spend more time on the beta, by the way its AWESOME!

  • Also, what if I’m in Mountain Time? Whoa, I just confused myself big time…

  • Soooo. you’re hatin’ on Canada again. Thanks a million.

  • Sure would love to be in the beta but do we need a twitter account? If so I think i will pass on this one, don’t have an account.

  • WarPonyDestroyer

    Goodluck to all. I think I’ll go buy a lotto ticket now, better odds.


  • 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]” ?

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

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

  • Does Zipper have a twitter set up for MAG?? or even one for themselves?

  • just great. When I am in class, the contest will be happening :(

  • lilshawn2012

    so do i create a twitter account


    wow thanks playstation, canada is left out once again to get into a beta. thanks playstation. was real excited and was checking the twitter every few minutes but then i came back to this site to see how many they were giving out but i read u.s residents only. why is there never canadian residents only or north american residents only?

  • MastahKillah82

    Everyones character got reset back to level 1 from the update =( but I will see u guys there !

  • thats cool

    I know its off topic but do you know if there will be one Fallout 3 dlc today in the store?

  • oh and i forgot.. you probably know it but the messages indicator dosnt work in the new firmware update

  • Hell yeah! I’m in!

  • See you guys on Twitter, and hopefully in the MAG beta soon afterwards!

  • I wish I could go ;_;

  • NightHawk17

    Why must i live in NYC, on the opposite side of pax:(

  • I’m excited because I’ll be there! Can’t wait!

  • fuifuimoimoi

    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.

  • NissanFlyboy

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

  • thanks #11

  • CapinChronic

    Lucky for me I’m already in the beta… sorry to all you other canadains that have been left out of yet another event… shame shame SCEA :(

  • 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..

  • 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

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

  • 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

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

  • PhantomMenace84

    Hey I’m going to PAX tomorrow but I couldn’t get a spot in the session. Is it ok for people to drop in and see whats going on or is it strictly limited to those who got in?

  • newsense2008

    can someone please explain exactly how to submit answers to the questions that will be twittered, would be much appreciated. thanks

  • If was to leak something out I guarantee you that you wont know it was me.

  • I’m just kidding…. lol

  • to the person asking if there will be a single player portion….no there will not be.
    I too am a canadian in the closed beta…would have been nice for some friends to join in.

    seeya online

  • snowcrashed

    the PSN Digital Comics Team also have a Twitter account: @psncomics

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

  • intelligentboy

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


    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.

  • 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

  • CapinChronic

    @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!

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

  • Looking forward to receiving the code ;)

  • SketchyMidnight

    So how does @reply work?

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

  • same here i did it right away i hope im one of the 6! any way to find out what # you were?

  • 5 more questions to go
    and i think i am gonna miss couple of them

  • CarmenSanD13go

    I just answered the first question but I doubt it got to them…but I hope it did.
