VOTE YES to make MAG FREE on PS+!

MAG needed to be made free to play for Playstation Plus Subscribers the year after it’s initial release but Sony lacked the initiative and insight into MAG’s potential to do it, and now more than ever the game has needed something like this to maintain existing numbers with new players coming in so that one of the greatest FPS to be released doesn’t die at the hand of Sony.

The MAG beta was added to the Playstation Store in late 2010 and there ended up being a large influx of new low level players from it that greatly helped numbers, but many left instead of choosing to purchase the full version and I have no doubt that for many it was due to the poor experience you get from the MAG Beta being capped at lvl 8.

MAG is incredibly difficult for new players at a low level, especially if you’re playing alone instead of in a clan with competent players, and if lvl 8 is the most a player ever experiences of the game before deciding to buy they completely miss how much more fun the game becomes once you’re able to level up like everyone else. Even for most MAG veterans playing at Lvl 8 is hard compared to playing at Lvl 70 so why would that experience sell the game to a brand new MAG player?

They should just make the game free, market it as “MAG 2″, and make profit from DLC and character slots while they work on a real sequel to MAG.

This is a brillant idea! I believe that this would increase the player count and give us the sense that we are actually playing the MAG that we played a few years ago.

Loved MAG from beta. Sad to see it diminish like this. Would love to see the player base grow again.

played this game for over 500 hours, still miss it whenever i play the newest fps around.
make it free to play, let the people know how fun it is, make microtransactions, make some side cash.
damn, sad how many companies are afraid of fast and easy money.
and trust me, me and thousands of people would not hesitate to pay full price for the mag experience again.

Excellent idea. Voted up. As a PS+ subscriber (I already own MAG though), this would be epic.

Get this great game back on the map, we deserve it ;)

This is a must! The most epic MMOFPS ever created should be easily reachable for the community, c’mon Sony. It also shouldn’t be $30
on PSN maybe like 5 or 10 bucks IMHO.

I think this could be a great idea. Have the game in it’s initial form free then sell the add-on maps for something like $5.99 or $9.99 and also sell all the once free DLC gear & weapons for 99c. Yeah, lvl 8 was far too low to get a feel for this game. They probably should have had you get to lvl 60 then end the demo as soon as you get there.

It should have been made free for ps+ well over a year ago.

I’m all for it. The fact that in the eu store the game is currently being sold for £11.99 is outrageous for a game which is a month away from being 3 years old.

Make it free, make it more well known. Realize you got a special game which deserves a sequel.

A MAG 2 is a great idea. If Sony would actually take the time to listen to the fans and stop treating it like a waste of money, the SOCOM and MAG series could both come back alive

They were two epic exclusives, and just because the Zipper Interactive crew screwed up doesn’t mean that some of the other game companies working for Sony can’t make new ones.

MAG II would be nice. I’d like them to listen to the fans and really get the game out there.

This game deserves to be free to play, at least for PS+ members.

MAG is not difficult for a Level 8 Demo player if you have skill. MVPs are easy to get, which shows how many bad players play this game.

Im pretty sure planetside 2 is coming to the PS4 and hopefully Dust 514 come out great, but I think a lot of people wants to see MAG 2 for PS4. I know I really do. I can’t believe people like COD more. MAG is like battlefield 3 but with 256 players that people ignore for some strange reason. SONY really needs to look into bringing this game back. Cod/halo/xbox fanboys was scared of this game. This game needs to come back and better than ever with knew ideas and promotion. Its an amazing game.

Please please just make this game free. There’s absolutely no reason not to.
