I'm sure MAG will have more content/maps. Absolutely positive.

Sony chose to not have a subscription fee, while still running servers for the service. That costs money, and the best way for them to keep funding the game will be to produce DLC -- which I actually think most MAG players would gladly jump on... particularly map packs and new game modes.

In that sense, MAG will be something of an "addiction subscription"... where players effectively pay a subscription fee, but get content each time they do.

You are full of it. SOme of best selling games on PS3 are FPS games. The thing is 60$ for online only game is too much, especially when you have BBC2 coming out just week or two after you. If it had good single player i know more ppl would be interested

MAG is unique at what it does, 256 player massive battles. So it's competetion is unclear, Battleffield, Killzone, Call of Duty, these all cater to different audience. Same with SOCOM. The scale on MAG is like no other.

@ coolbeans:

BF:BC2 MP seems pretty shallow, compared to MAG. I doubt it'll hold up for long, for anything but casual FPS players. MAG is still #1, as far as FPS MP games go, in my book. Probably will be until at least Halo: Reach, if not longer, assuming there is DLC for it.

It'll hit 1 million in a couple of months for sure, hopefully its legs hold up now, no more drops!

@vv888 Advertising & marketing seems to be Sony's biggest weakness now. It's a drastic change from their last two gens where they marketed the hell out of the PS2 & PS1. They seem to just be getting the picture as I've seen more PS3/PSP based commercials in the last few months than ever before for the PS3. The " it only does everything " campaign is something they should of done a long time ago.

Still though, they don't seem to assist in the marketing of Third Party games. Something that MS does still do. Which is why you see some third party games commercials end with the Xbox 360 globe " jump in ' spot. This can just be the case of MS having deeper pockets & Sony do whatever they can to save money.

@dgc1808 If you're counting all of their franchises, then their is to many to list. A lot of Sony developed IP's have sold more than MAG in its opening week.

@Mr Puggsly I mentioned further down that pre orders do not mark a guarantee sale. So no one should never predict sale numbers based on pre orders. Most of the time, the end result will not match.

I think its safe to say the beta release actually hurt sales. The America preorders were at about 250K. Yet it sold under 200K.

Seems like a cool game, and I like the PS3, but man, the views of this game compared to ME2 just show how many sony fanboys there are in here compared to 360 or nintendo, despite the smaller sales. I mean heck, this site voted MAG as more anticipated than ME2... this site leans heavily towards sony, just sayin...

@Scruff7 That's hard to say, depends if you are playing in NA or EU or Asia. I'm in EU and sofar the game is pretty balanced here, with SVER having the upper hand in sabotage, raven in aqusition and free for all domination. Arsholes should be soon distributed equally among all of the PMCs, since teamhoppers are allways trying to find the easiest faction to play for. Valor might have more green brains, Raven kids and SVER elitistic jerks. But all in all, get a team, join with them, you'll never have to listen to pricks again.

OK let me break it down for the people who think the games crap with out even trying it and let me tell yous why this game is awesome.

First off the charactor customization is preety feckin cool and it makes you feel proud of your character.

Second the skill tier tree has an rpg feel to it and you can feel the differance in your charater after upgrading him with the skills.

3rd, come on man 256 players on a map at the one time and the game gives you the abilities to command others. On top of going around planting bombs and blowing shit up or parachuting into battle the game really gets people working as a team.

Seriously thats something a lot of FPS's fail to do but in Mag everyones talking to each other, repairing shit, healing each other and doing objectives together.

The games absolutley brilliant

@pearLy It is never smart to release a new IP the same day that a highly anticipated game releases on. Regardless if the game is a system exclusive or a multi platform game. It affects how hard a retailer will advertise the game. To give an example, the local Gamestops & Bestbuys in my area of New York City heavily marketed Mass Effect 2 but there was 1 poster for MAG & that was at Gamestop. There was nothing showing that MAG was releasing on the 26th at Bestbuy but they had plenty of Mass Effect banners & posters all over the store.

At the sale Predictions. I see a lot of bogus numbers. With the 600K + predicitons. That would make it almost near what Uncharted 2 did & to be honest, their's no way in hell that it will anywhere near what Uncharted 2 did in its first week. Uncharted 2 was a HIGHLY anticipated & well marketed game where as MAG is the complete opposite. I say 150K as the absolute most for its first week of sales.
