Man, you weren't joking. Store I went into today had seven of them in their bin all properly stickered. None of them were in the greatest hits case like the picture on the website.

Anybody know if the greatest hits version included DLC, did it?


I think all the DLC is free now, not sure on that though.

Servers will probably be turned off soon.

PS+ had that map pack free early on in the service's lifespan. Glad I downloaded that way back then even though I didn't own the game.

By the way, guys, add me if you want to play together. MattYoung730

Unless its within a day this is still worth it. Less cost than a 1-day Redbox rental.

I picked one up. Why would they turn servers off now? This is going to create a pretty large influx of people who will play and probably buy DLC. They don't just turn servers off for no reason.

My friend and I got our copies yesterday. Played about 8 matches today. Love it so far.

We both picked the Valor team, won 2 of 8 matches. More people should join Valor!! It'll even the balance out.

I've been a + subscriber since day 1, and I purchase all free DLC and games no matter what, just in case.

Remember that according to the back of the box, the servers will not be shut down without a 90 day notice.

If any of you guys are curious but don't want to go get it just yet, there's a demo available on PSN. I'll probably go look for it later but it's probably going to cost me more in gas money to drive over to Gamestop and back than to actually buy the game :)

Man, I guess I am fortunate. I have a GameStop in any direction within 10 minutes. I work next door to one as well.

Picked up a copy yesterday. It came complete with original case and manual. And there was only one gamestop sticker on the case and it peeled off easily without leaving any residue. \\:D/ I guess it was just one of those days.

Got my copy yesterday in great shape from reserving for pick up online. Didn't even have to waste gas because it was in walking distance from work. It was also nice not to be hounded for stuff, probably because I was in my Best Buy uniform when I walked in so I actually made sure I did the survey for once for the employee. Left a positive review about being knowledgeable about deals/products and very helpful.

Just went and bought a copy myself. Decided to trade in a game and my iPad 2 while the 50% trade in was still going and this was my best option (IMO) for the cheap pre-owned purchase I needed to make! Can't beat .89, .95 after tax! Lol

Eh, after a comically long update process I managed to play through several rounds. In general I find multiplayer on console games too chaotic for my tastes and this was no exception. I think I gave it a fair shot but the game just isn't right for me.

(Just stating a simple opinion here, not trying to start some console vs PC BS, I enjoy both and each have their pros and cons, kthxbye.)

Picked up a complete copy today and just played a few games. There's two ways to look at it; it was just $1, and its a great deal. Or in my case why am I wasting my time with this when I have far superior options like Battlefield 3? It was neat to try out, but these games require a lot of time investment to get the good attatchments, perks, and guns. Time I'm not willing to devote to MAG when I've got better options. That's just my view of it. In the words of Shark Tank, "I'm out".

PROTIP: DO NOT PLAY SVER. SVER is for children who want to feel good about themselves with lag advantage and instakill weapons. Everybody calls them "Easy moders", the only people who don't realize this are exclusive SVER players who haven't tried other factions.

source: me, who has over 900+ hours total of MAG play over 3 accounts on the 3 different factions.

I ended up grabbing one at a Gamestop I drove by. They had TONS of copies but none of them were marked 99 cents -- I had to have an employee scan it.

Picked one up. Only because my wife, daughter, and I needed to go to Kohls for some new clothes (17 month old is growing way too fast) and GAmestop is right next to it.

I kinda hope the community grows a good amount and they decide to keep the servers up longer.

Any idea when they are being shut down???

Just picked this up earlier today for a $1.08 and i am still not sure if it was worth it lol. I'm not sure how much more content i really got than in the free version on PSN lol.

Could you elaborate on this a little more? How does one faction have a lag advantage in the same game? What makes it an easy mode? Is that the better faction for a beginner and what are the differences between them?

Got a copy for myself and two of my friends each got copies. Haven't got to play it yet, but, I like anything that has (good) Sharp Shooter controls.

So there's absolutely NO one-player or local way to play this?

Exactly and thats why its .99 cents.

I had soo much fun with this game when it dropped and for at least a good year. I had a close nit group of friends and we all played together, but above that the game was just good and for a console pushed the limits with size of players on a single field.

All around fun. We did re buy this a few months ago and didnt get back into it as we had before, its aged a bit and while they have made updates, its become somewhat one sided.

They were up yesterday so I seriously doubt they would shut them off while they're still active. Even them we have a 7 day return policy so no loss.
