MAG Beta Test for Qore Subscribers Launching Thursday

Kevin Furuichi's Avatar Posted by 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 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.

Add Your Own

The TITLE of the article is:

MAG Beta Test for Qore Subscribers Launching Thursday

THURSDAY. I think you’re just a little too excited and getting angry for your own mistakes :D

Just received my code, only to find out its no longer valid, any way to fix this?

When it comes to actual PSN accounts there is no such thing as a master or sub account. Each account is individual and the e-mail attached to it is where the code will be sent to. Better hurry and change the e-mail on the account!

@rufusthestuntbum it isn’t active yet, the beta will begin september 17th. So your code is good to go until that day

cmargary said:

September 14th, 7:43 pm

I get the invite, I’m glad. Btw I found funny that the title ant the article says thursday and…

findaway said:

September 14th, 7:49 pm

Jesus Christ.

Im sorry to be rude, but are some of you people BLIND? or just DUMB?

Look at the freaking title of the post. It says launching THURSDAY.

Obviously you didnt actually READ the email you received with the code either. It is clearly stated there too!

Last but not least, you dont pay attention to the REPLIES for some of the comments, even though they are highlighted in RED.

Just before you freak out on the 17th… keep in mind the beta is available monday through friday from 10:00AM – 1:00PM PDT – and 5:00PM – 8:00PM PDT ONLY. Im saying this because im quite sure people will be complaining about not being able to connect to the server.

Im done ranting now. It just gets on my nerves when people completely ignore facts that have been started over and over.

robsainz said:

September 14th, 7:52 pm

@findaway its a bummer it isn’t available on weekends or 24/7 :(

Shroomie said:

September 14th, 7:56 pm

yea i was hoping to have it installed also but oh well at least i got a code and to this guy

“THAT SHOULD BE THE FIRST LINE IN THIS ARTICLE!!!! I just spent an hour on the phone with your tech support. the first person I spoke to told me that i would have to wait until Mid December. Then the really awesome supervisor tried everything in her power to get me all fixed up. If it doesn’t work on the 17th( I will be entering it at midnight) she told me to call her back.
Please for the love of pete dont let this end up like the socom beta……

it probably wont work at midnight either.. it will probably be around when the beta is “open” ie thursday at i think it was 10ampst or 1pmEST so yea i wouldnt go calling them at midnight cuz it probably wont work anyways

cmargary said:

September 14th, 7:57 pm

Off topic but… The ps3 have a minor update?

findaway said:

September 14th, 8:03 pm


That, it is my friend.


September 14th, 8:03 pm

@ xenorevlis sure it starts thursday but it doesnt say that you have to wait till then to DOWNLOAD IT! That is what I am saying and alot of other people were confused by that too. every other BETA I’ve been in and I’ve been in all of them have let you download it a few days before hand. So why don’t YOU go reread and see if its not misleading….

M-F, 10-1 and 5-8? What the hell kind of hours are those, we aren’t all in elementary school or jobless bums.

Neo_Selen said:

September 14th, 8:31 pm

And those of us who pre-ordered with Gamestop get in when?

kosluftar said:

September 14th, 8:32 pm

Do i need to wait till thursday to redeme code? I tried entering it but it said it was invalid.

Ackehece said:

September 14th, 8:33 pm

have the code but…
it does not work
“this code is invalid”

Ackehece said:

September 14th, 8:35 pm

seems I am an idiot – will only work on or after thursday?… I figured once the codes where out they would work…
The reason I wonder is that I have a beta code for U2:among thieves and for other things and all give that “Invalid code” warning

robsainz said:

September 14th, 8:35 pm

@Ackehece you have to wait ’till thursday to redeem it.

@kosluftar Yes, you have to wait ’till thursday

KingSorrow said:

September 14th, 8:39 pm

I got my code, but it’s not working. Something wrong or do I have to wait until the 17th?

Got my voucher just late tonight. Thanks Sony, wrote the code, wait until Thursday an then we go to war!!!!

Also looking forward to the Brutal Legend demo, and the Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 that I will have to look for on the Asians PSN stores (not expecting to have the english version soon besides you are late for FIFA 10, UK has it before US)… hehehe.

etur0 said:

September 14th, 9:05 pm

Do I need to re-download it if it is still on my ps3 since I was in the private beta

gamesrule_0 said:

September 14th, 9:07 pm

Finally I can play it…. o wait I can’t because there are times to play it in. I will be in school from 11 to 2 and can’t play it from 6 to 9 because my parents are watching tv. So i guess it is a waist.

Pelt_Hunter said:

September 14th, 9:17 pm

Okay so I sounded a bit whiny in my last post. So thanks for lookin’ past that and actually answering my question Mr. Furuichi.

This blog is one of the greatest things about having a Sony machine(not that you can’t read it if you don’t, it just makes it more relevant)timely updates and getting answers from people “in the know” with Sony is a breakthrough. I certainly appreciate the fact that the US Playstation Blog has a great staff, ready and willing to answers questions or help out in any way, even if they are already answered ones like mine… LOL guess I need to check the blog even more often.

Good lookin’ out Sony. Keep making good choices and the good fortunes will roll in.


September 14th, 9:19 pm

my code isn’t working am i supposed to wait till the 17th to put it in or what. and i know i put it in correctly. i even tried diff things and still it gives me this: the code you entered may not be correct or may no longer be valid.
please check your entries.
is this happening for anyone else.


September 14th, 9:21 pm

sorry bout my last post i guess i should have read the other posts

FluffyReap22 said:

September 14th, 9:28 pm

EMoookid said:

September 14th, 9:33 pm

Please Help i have tried to put in my code like 20 times and it says that its not right? I dont know what to do?

rodman2007 said:

September 14th, 9:52 pm

Hi, I got my code tonight but it isnt working……I go to the PS store click redeem code type in the code exactly like its written and it comes back saying “the code you entered may not be correct or may no longer be valid”
I bought qore just for this beta please tell me I’m not screwed.


September 14th, 9:53 pm

Just one question about the hours 10am-1pm and 5-8pm Pacific (PDT)…. Are these going to stay the same for the entire beta?? or is there like a phase 2 where it might be playable during the weekends or extended through the week.. thanks for the response in advance

September 14th, 11:23 pm

I just tried entering in my code, and it’s saying it’s either not correct or invalid.

I am indeed typing it as shown in on my E-mail.

I got my code in the first batch.

terranwolf said:

September 14th, 11:25 pm

I forgot to mention that it doesn’t say anything about needing to wait until the 17th to redeem.

It states that you cannot -play- MAG until the 17th. That’s quite different from “being able to enter the code and pre-loading”.

halcon3 said:

September 14th, 11:28 pm

you cant redeem it until the 17th or play till the 17th

halcon3 said:

September 14th, 11:29 pm

you cant redeem till the 17th or play till the 17th so wait untill the 17th ha

halcon3 said:

September 14th, 11:37 pm

Uggg I am getting up as early as possible on the 17th. Everyone downloading the beta on the same day. It’s gonna take me about 5 hours I bet to download it. Wish there was a way we could download the software early and then oh the 17th they could just activate it then. Oh well. Still can’t wait. Been drooling over this game since I first heard about it.

terranwolf said:

September 14th, 11:41 pm

Halcon, I know you are saying that but there is no proof in it (hence why I stated so in the previous post).

Looking for some official news.

CrippeLz said:

September 14th, 11:43 pm

Nazfera2 said:

September 14th, 11:43 pm
