    Advisory: Online multiplayer services for MAG, SOCOM Confrontation, and SOCOM 4 will be ending on 01/28/14
    So sad that I really loved MAG with the whole 256 players battle at the same time which is a record and a achievement for consoles.

    I can understand why Confrontation is shutting down but Socom 4 and Mag already? Damn that's badly short lived

    I thought Confrontation was shut down years ago! SOCOM 4 however hasn't exactly been out long, suppose it was never very popular though.

    That means everyone with a copy of MAG can take that disc and throw it in the garbage come 1/28 since that whole game is online MP

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    I'm gonna play MAG more often until they go down. They hold my first PS3 memories and it's still a really fun game whenever I actually get on it. Oh well, it's had a pretty good run, not sure about the SOCOM games though.

    This will be hilarious when the servers get shut down and we still see people earning the Confrontation .

    I think the same goes for Confrontation.

    I wouldn't call MAG or Confrontation new by any means. Confrontation got released in 2008 and MAG was released in 2010. SOCOM 4 came out in 2011, which makes it the newest of the bunch and still two years old. These games never really managed to attract a large following, so I can definitely see why they're shutting the servers down.

    Sad to see MAG go and I hope the devs found spots in new studios after the closure of Zipper. Those guys truly broke new ground and redefined multiplayer for consoles. It's a shame their target market was too busy 360-no-scoping in 8v8 maps (or 12v12 if they wanted a REALLY big lobby) to pick up this title. The plat was awfully grindy though, +1 to all the holders.

    On the bright side least we'll be seeing other online games fill up due to MAG.

    Don't you have better things to do like making a 5 - not 4 - image sig with clickable links?

    There's always someone still playing a game, be it 5 years old or not. I'm sure that if I went and played every game I have with online multiplayer (and no closed servers), I'd find someone lol. As bizarre as it is.
