PlayStation Beyond E3 '08: M.A.G Preview

PSBeyond Writes: "At the end of Sony's Press Conference, most people were left shocked as Zipper annouced their latest title which supports massive 256 player matches, something which is unheard of in the Console world.

Zipper Interactive, known for their impressive SOCOM titles on the PlayStation 2 have raised the bar with M.A.G (short for Massive Action Game), an online only shooter which is set around 10-15 years into the future and boasts impressive 256 player matches. Alot of people have jumped to the conclusion that 256 players is too much for a game by comparing it to currently avaible online games such as Call of Duty and Warhawk.

This has become my most wanted Ps3 game, ahead of God of War, Killzone, LittleBigPlanet, Socom and GT5.

its third on my list for 09

The reason why they want this game is because of 256 battles. They gonna be disseminated when they find out about monthly fees.

AlienGorilla3801d ago

I doubt there will be monthly fees.

On a side note though, is this the "Secret Game" that was supposed to wow us and left that British reporter speechless?

Just curious.

The biggest issue with mag is voice chat.
I know everyone reads the massive number of players on line but they will not read about the gameplay and home many players you can actually interact with. It's going to be great but sony must...

Find a way to make voice chat standard.

I would put money on it being TPS.
