MAG (Massive Action Game) Gets a Hefty Price Drop

MAG, also known as Massive Action Game for the PlayStation 3, features online play with up to 256 players. Today it received a hefty price drop, allowing gamers to join in on the action.

From the $49.99 price point, MAG has dropped down to $29.99, allowing gamers to save $20 more. When MAG was released, it received a mixed reaction from critics. Some outlets like it and some don’t–but hey, it depends on a gamer’s taste. Does the price drop means the quality of the game is bad?

We have reviewed MAG and we gave it a 4 out of 5. We like it, but what about you? Head over to your local game retailers to purchase a copy of MAG.

Editor’s Note: The sale only last for a day at GameStop. After May 12th, the price is going to revert at $49.99.

    I love MAG. Hopefully more people will give it a chance at the lower price. It’s so much better than the mindlessness of MW2 and once BF:BC2 fans play it they’ll see how empty BC2 is in comparison.

    MAG is a fail. Nobody communicates and most players are out for themselves. No headsets, the battles are never 156 vs 156 as advertised and it’s the same maps reversed. Throw in the PS2 style graphics and it’s a disappointing game to say the least. No Campaign, so there is no real way to learn to play the games without jumping right into the action.

    Such a drastic price drop is usually the first sign of the game losing popularity. This will bring some new players in temporarily but ultimately this is MAG’s death knell.

    RIP MAG, I feel sorry for the newbies just buying it. They don’t know how long the queue times are.

    Judging by the Demo/BETA, $30 is way too much. The game is a steaming pile of garbage.

    crapgamer and examiner both posts suit their author’s name quite well, also neither seem to posses any first hand knowledge about mag. Just posting their opinion on a game they have never played or played a couple rounds of the beta and made their mind up then and there.

    And exactly why would 256 player on a enormous map, all be concentrated in a single small area and turn the game into a cluster f*ck fragfest. Just because you can’t see all 128 opposing players doesn’t mean they are not there.

    It has a training mode, and suppression(practice mode), and it’s a fps game do you really need to have the developers hold your hand in a fps?

    As for the price drop being a sign mag’s death throw, have you never heard of greatest hits or lowering the price to boost sales. It happens often, and mag would have gained more purchases at $29 vs 49. Now feel free to look up my name on mag if either of you actually own the game.

    I think I’m going to skip MW2 DLCs and get a copy of MAG for the summer.
