MAG Officialy Unloading In January 2010

PlayStation 3's massive multiplayer shooter MAG is—officially now—releasing in January 2010, confirming retailer "speculation" that the Zipper Interactive game wouldn't make the holiday season.

A little bit later than some of us might have been hoping for, but considering MAG is just now entering a wider public beta phase, not totally unexpected. Cushioning that potential blow is news from Sony that MAG will be playable at the upcoming Penny Arcade Expo.

Seattle area MAG fans should keep Friday, September 4th from 6:00 to 9:00 PM open, checking in with the official PlayStation.blog for additional details.
