Hey - There are MAG beat keys going at the official Playstation site - Link in the next post.

You just need to sign in and click the box to be in with a shout. They are giving them out to the first 16,000 people apparently...............it only opened last night at midnight, so should be a good chance of getting one.

Wow - don't all rush at once :w00t:

Seriously though, they seem to have cut the competition/offer short - no longer taking sign ups......

PS. If anybody missed out on an invitation to the M.A.G Beta there is some hope...

"]If You Registered For Euro MAG Beta, You WILL Get A Code"
---
It may very well be the most anticipated beta test of the generation and absolutely everyone wants a taste. We found that during our MAG beta code giveaway, when we received about 750 wallpaper submissions in the span of only 72 hours (all codes are gone, by the way).

But if you're in Europe, it's plenty easy to snag a spot in the testing. If you haven't already received one of the 16,000 codes SCEE was giving away, have no fear: you'll get one, so long as you registered. According to TheSixthAxis, European SOCOM and MAG producer Shijima has confirmed that if you registered to get a code before and haven't seen one yet, it will be on its way very, very soon:

"I can confirm that everyone in all regions who registered but never received their code will be sent one over the course of tomorrow, probably by 2-3pm UK time. Furthermore, in an effort to try and do a Quantum Leap (put right what once went wrong), we will be sending out codes to the remaining 20,000-odd people who registered. So, if you managed to register on the site before the competition closed, I am told that you WILL get your code tomorrow."

Yeah, in this particular case, European gamers certainly aren't getting the short end of the stick. And the more people flood into this beta, the more everyone will become psyched for the final product (and the better Zipper Interactive can test the stability of those servers). We'd like to tell you we could just grab another set of codes for everyone here in the US but hey, at least 100 diligent dudes are in 'cuz of us. That's something.

You must have a fast ISP man - my internet gets choked in the evening, so have left it at 10% complete, and will try and finish it up later (after 11pm, and possibly through the night).

Lord help us if everything becomes download only in the future (as the corporate might of Sony seem to want to see)...........:roll:

I've added you on PSN by the way - hope that's OK

Thanks. I tried but...

I typed the code in as detailed in the message and after clicking [Confirm] on the acceptance of the "Use of this item is subject to the Terms of Service and any specific conditions applying to the promotion" dialog box I was presented with the message:

"The code you entered may not be correct or may no longer be valid. Please check your entries."

I checked the code three times, by starting over twice more.

No joy

I placed a comment in the Official EU PlayStation Blog thread, "]Sign Up For The MAG Beta" to report this.

Hopefully it will be resolved soon.

BFN,

If you mean 'does my toy MAG gun take the noisy smelly small discs of explosive compounds' then no... I didn't get that far in the game!

Other than that, yes, the redemption code was in upper case, so I typed it as described.

Some voucher codes include lower case characters, but all the individual characters in my code were upper case.

It was a recognised code because I saw the screen describing the download (file size; number of players; HD-TV resolution etc); it was just at the point of accepting the terms that it failed.

My update is runing at about 100kb/s - it feels like it is taking forever!!!!!!

For some reason this morning, it started back up at 20%, not the 30% it had reached last night :? - no way I am stopping it again, this will just have to run until done........................
