Sony Explains Shortage Of MAG Reviews

January 25, 2010 Written by Zak Islam

MAG is shaping up to start the new decade with a bang with its record-breaking 256 player online phenomenon. Despite the release date being only a day away for the exclusive, the FPS has not seen many reviews by the media yet.  Jeff Rubenstein, Social Media Manager of SCEA, explains why.

Rubenstein explains the shortage of reviews for the highly anticipated MAG in the comments section of the US PS Blog:

Reviews can’t be written until the game is actually out. I mean, you can’t pass pre-release judgment on a game whose major, industry-leading feature (256 players in a single battle) can’t be tested until release day.

Expect some reviews to appear later as the servers go live to withhold 256 player mayhem today. Zipper Interactive‘s MAG will invade consoles on 26 January for North America and 29 January for Europe. Stay tuned to PSLS as we review the exclusive.
