My local Gamestop told me they got rid of the game.
Sony did not have to do anything. The game was probably long out of print and the floating copies were probably used or just unsold.
An old game does not need a buyback program from Sony. Now, E.T. did need that. And luckily for retailers they did.
I find it sad when companies shut down servers. It's not as if it costs much to run a few token units to keep things alive, and with today's virtual machines, there's no need to keep ancient hardware alive.
Well.... when a company puts money into a product, they still have to make sure they make SOME money back, regardless if it works or not.
The last thing they want to do is completely dump all the MAG inventory and lose tons of money from the copies they have in possession.
Its going to take them TIME before they finally realize what a lost cause it is trying to sell MAG.
When it comes to making money, business are quick to act.... when it comes to LOSING money, companies are much slower in realizing a lost cause if there is ALWAYS a few people willing to spend $1 on a game
Your reply has to be the most insane,dumb rely I've ever seen. You do realize that these games are only multiplayer of which sony shut down the servers completely. They did the same for all socoms including socom 3 and socom 4 which one of them is only online.
This is deception......This is crooked business methods.
For the record I walked into an EB Games recently and saw this once again being sold. Seriously? Over a year later since my initial post and this hasn't stopped. I might have to contact the Better Business Bureau.
