Zipper Interactive has launched the promised open beta test for the PlayStation 3's MAG, but early server issues are causing frustration for players unable to connect.
Judging by the comments posted in the PlayStation blog entry by Zipper's senior community manager Jeremy Dunham, many players have already had a chance to log in and go a few rounds in the Massive Action Game beta, but later commentors and some of our own tipsters report that they cannot connect to the game at all. Dunham addresses the issues in his replies to commenters, stating that they are working to fix a "server hiccup".
Dunham's most recent reply, posted a half-hour before this post went live, explains that, "Yes, we're having a server issue at the moment" and "We are in the midst of fixing it", urging players to "Hang in there."
In case his message is not clear, I've prepared a visual aid.
