Sony: MAG will make you buy a PS3

I doubt it. It looks interesting, but I think it's GoW3, GT5 etc that will do the tipping.

Edit: of course it might turn out to be bloody amazing, fly off the shelves and then I will stand corrected (said the man in the orthapedic shoes).

I already have a PS3 and this doesn't interest me in the slightest. Impressive numbers and the game probably will be good, but I don't like online play so this really isn't for me.

They might just be right!

I am seriously looking forward to this and it will possibly be the game that drives the purchase of my Slim - if it's as good as I'm hoping...

You mean you're not getting MAG! Sony should use that as a selling point... 'Get MAG, prats like dorian won't be playing it!". That'll shift a few PS3s.

What if you already own a PS3?, will it make you buy a second one?.

Agent will potentially make me buy a PS3, not another "Me too!" shooter that just ups the number of people playing and therefore the number of tossers you're likely to meet online...

Made me want to sell it, more like.

Nah, that's not true. Still won't be buying this one, though.

So yea you got this from playing a BETA? The BETA is 100% representative of how the connection with be when the full game ships? Poster child for safe sex is what you are.

I don't think this game will shift PS3's like GT5 will, GT5 is the reason I bought my PS3. My PS3 supports the latest and greatest peripherals (G25/27) and it continues to be the center of my room, Blu ray and the like. This is why I really have it, it has other uses which make it perfect for what I do.

If it does sell well, then I'll buy it. If not then no chance. I was on the closed beta a few months ago and the gameplay was superb, but the long waits for players to fill a match put me off a bit. However that problem will go if enough people buy it. Maybe I'll wait a bit & see how well it does first.

No multiplayer game could make me buy itself, not to mind a whole console to play it on.

But then I have a PS3 so I don't think Sony will mind.

Looks about as bland as eating a celery sandwich to me. No, thanks Sony.

Now Modnation Racers- THAT looks like good fun.

I think they should be more concerned about making people work together like they are supposed to, rather than having everybody going off in Rambo mode, thus missing the point of the game entirely...
