The lights are on
Socom fans are probably already busy playing the beta for Zipper Interactive’s new military shooter MAG, but anyone interested in taking part in 256-player online domination matches might want to hop in on the beta, which starts today.
Zipper was having some server hiccups this morning, but it looks like things have been ironed out. If you’re interested in trying the game out for yourself make sure you go visit PlayStation's online store and download the beta for yourself.

I like this game. I don't understand what a beta is though. I'll just wait till the game comes out.
Yes! now I get to be first. Oh, and thanks for the info, I was hoping this would happen soon. This is so awesome.
The servers are still crap. I can't get online.
i believe this was posted before. in any event, there's no reason everyone shouldn't give this a try. i've played the private beta since day one, and all modes are solid entertainment, but be sure to try domination, which is supposed to be available. with a good squad/platoon, this 256 player mode is an absolute blast and unlike anything you've played before, at least in it's scale.
I was on at 10am eastern time. It's a pretty cool game. I love the airdrop parachute spawn points...
I still cannot get out of the first screen no matter what I press or do. Any advice?
So I join a queue for Sabotage...and after a minute it disconnects. WTF!!!!
the update takes like 10 hours but its worth it.
Plan to log on to this demo soon as I hit the time clock.
@IncorruptM A beta is an unfinished version of the game. It's used to test the game for bugs.
played the origianl beta with qore sub and it was nice, if its still the same beta then ill just wait till the game comes out
Crud I still cant get online and Its not my connection either
okay a beta is a demo of the online duuuuhhh
Some have already complained of inability to connect to the game, but this is what the beta is all about, work out the kinks so the final product is improved
Got into a game. It was alright. Map too vast for the number of people there were, though. Domination is the only mode I would play, granted I stick with it.
Real Socom Fans Are Waiting On Zipper To Finish Mag & Get To Work On Socom 4...Its Believed that Mag will become the online foundation for Socom..Sure Hope So
Already playing it, and it's amazing.
I played the private Beta, it's okay. Plays like a regualar FPS to me.
cant get into. server problems at the moment.
