Zipper: MAG still “amongst the most played online PS3 games out there”

Monday, 15th November 2010 07:31 GMT By Joe Anderson


Thought MAG was dying following news of Zipper Interactive working on a new SOCOM game? Think again.

Speaking via the game’s official forum in response to a user who said the game was struggling even to keep up with SOCOM Confrontation’s numbers, Zipper community boss Jeremy Dunham said this was far from being the case.

“This is incorrect – MAG has more concurrent players than SOCOM Confrontation worldwide on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. This has been true for every month since MAG’s release on January 26,” he said.

“Obviously we don’t hit the same numbers we had in our first few months in terms of concurrent and daily users, but we’re still amongst the most played online PS3 games out there.”

MAG is currently approaching it’s first anniversary. The MAG 2.0 update was released a few months back, adding in PlayStation Move support, while this month saw the arrival of the Escalation pack.

Zipper’s next game, SOCOM 4, will be released next year, and will also include support for PlayStation Move.

    I can see it having a bigger community than Confrontation, lol.

    MAG didn’t have many people playing on my friend list at launch and a month later no one on my friend list was playing it at all. Which is why I never bothered to pick it up.

    ive just recently picked it up for 18 pounds from zavvi.
    just played one time some rounds and got thrown in directly into a domination match by some friends, which is the most complex. it did overcharge me a bit but the ganme definatlky has a solid base to make for some intense fps action. teamplay was surprisingly good, barely some one man armys!
    i guess it will be my fps of choice until kz3 arrives.

    Looking to pick this back up when I see it cheap for Move compatibility. It’s been Greatest Hits released in the US but yet to Platinum here.

    Sabotage is a decent focused mode to start you off. Generally fairly obvious what is going on and where you should be. Better to get yourself used to controls etc. Domination is fantastic once you know what you are doing. Just bringing up the map and watching all the little red dots run around is a sight to behold.
