PSA: MAG Beta Access Guaranteed by Qore Sub

In advance of today's PlayStation Store update, Sony has reminded everyone that those with an annual subscription to its online PlayStation 3 video magazine Qore are guaranteed access to the upcoming beta test for Zipper's 256-player shooter MAG.

The beta is slated to kick off September 17, with the full game due January 26, 2010. nope

Anyone aged 18 or older that has plunked down the $25 for an annual Qore subscription (or renewed said subscription for $20) on or before September 17 will be e-mailed a voucher code for participation, going by a post on the official PlayStation.Blog.

While Qore isn't the only way to gaining access to the MAG beta--e-mails soliciting beta applications went out to some earlier this year, and Sony has already started giving away codes in contests--an annual subscription is thus far the only guaranteed method.
