It'll be the beta event of the year (and depending on your viewpoint, possibly of the generation), and if you want in, you're gonna want to subscribe to the PlayStation Network's virtual magazine.
We've been wondering when the MAG public beta would start, and exactly how gamers would land a spot in the test. The private beta is currently underway and we're not far from the time Zipper Interactive opens it up to the rest of the anxious public, so how do you get in? Well, we don't have all the details just yet, but Sony's Jeff Rubenstein answered the question over at the PlayStation Blog . Underneath the post where we get a look at the trailer that wowed spectators at this year's GamesCom event, Rubenstein said in a reply:
"Yep. Annual Qore subscribers (those subscribed prior to the start of the Beta- 9.17) will have access to the Official MAG Public Beta."
Okay, so the beta kicks off on September 17, which means you've got less than a month to make the purchase that will get you into the MAG beta. Of course, there's another multiplayer beta going on at that time; the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves demo starts on September 15 if you pre-order the impending blockbuster from GameStop. So many betas…so little time.
