I have never seen a beta crash under load before. They have had other glitches but the amount of people who are trying out the MAG beta has to be a fair amount fewer than those expected to pick up the title on launch day and still the servers have crashed.
This is very bad news for those who were excited about the game and throws weight behind the argument that consoles cannot support 256 player gamesâ€¦ let’s hope this is just a glitch and everything will be working again shortly.

it could be a positive for them… shows there’s overwhelming interest in the game.

Rather now in Beta than with the actual release. At least now they know there’s an issue that needs sorting.

yes, they need to get this sorted, last time “2008” with socom and risistance they had a lot of server problems just after launch.

I couldn’t imagine them releasing a game like this without having a public beta first, I’m going to have some impressions up on the site soon, well, that’s if the servers come right.
