MAG Preview »

Sony is handing out codes to enter into the MAG beta at PAX 2009 and Sony even held a massive fan gathering to celebrate the beta's launch, which Sterling McGarvey managed to attend. Sterling wasn't much a fan of SOCOM, but he's interested in seeing what happens with MAG, especially now that it's becoming a reality.

"As M.A.G. designer Ben Jones gave me a tour of the ongoing public beta, I couldn't help but to feel a sense of loss. Loss for the traditions of SOCOM, which, once M.A.G. drops early next year, is pretty much dead and buried. Instead, Zipper has thrown itself into an experience that's a little bit SOCOM, a little Modern Warfare, and undeniably influenced by MMO culture. It's an ambitious experiment, and I'm curious to see how Zipper pulls it off, even if SOCOM never fully resonated with me."

Read the rest of Sterling's hands-on preview over here. I'm off to PAX!
