Sony Announces Server Shutdown Date for MAG & SOCOM

It’s never a happy day when a game is pulled off the servers no matter how long it has been up there. so this may serve as a notice to all those who have had been delaying plans to start playing MAG, SOCOM 4 or SOCOM Confrontation – Sony is shutting down their Online Servers.

A tweet on PlayStations verified twitter account reads an explicit message to all the fans of MAG, SOCOM 4 and SOCOM Confrontation in these words:

“Advisory: Online multiplayer services for MAG, SOCOM Confrontation, and SOCOM 4 will be ending on 01/28/14”

So this would be enough warning for all the players to catch up on it before the 28th of January next year after which these games will not be available to play online.

Though there is one thing positive about a game nearing the end of its online presence; discounts! All three of these games are now available at lower rates than usual from retailers like Canada’s EB Games and GameStop of USA.

Here are the revised rates, thanks to PlayStationLifestyle:

EB Games – $4.95 (Used)

SOCOM Confrontation

  • EB Games – $.99 (New), $3.99 (Used)
  • GameStop – $2.99 (Used)


  • EB Games – $4.99 (Used), $9.99 (New)
  • GameStop – $6.99 (Used)

Let’s see what kind of a farewell do these games get.
