First Person Shooter MMO (A Concept Idea)

One of Sony's biggest announcements at E3 this year was the unveiling of MAG. Titled Massive Action Game the game is set to submerge players into large maps capable of holding two hundred and fifty six players all at once. That's over four times the current 60 player limit that only a hand full of multiplayer games feature. While the game looked impressive from an animation stand point gamers know not to trust CGI, and to wait for in-game footage to be released. As I watched the MAG debut trailer a spinoff concept of this title stirred my mind, and after a few days of laying around in the back of my head I've decided to lay it out as a concept idea to see what reactions I receive from others. The idea has no real name so for now I'll title it FPSM (First Person Shooter MMO). The concept takes a similar approach to MAG in terms of having numerous players interacting all at once, but in a more MMO stand point. The game consist of three factions, a full world rendered map, and an FPS experience beyond anything you have yet to get your hands on. Fasten your seat belts, and switch on your imagination because this concept idea is one of the most ambitious yet to pop out of my head.

I'm gonna be smart, how they know this is a FPS?

I shouldn't have made this comment...that argument is getting old.

...I feel like playing RISK.

Um M.A.G. is not an MMO. How many times does Zipper Interactive have to clarify this for these morons? And it'll most likely be in Third Person just like their SOCOM games.

saf1007923779d ago

actually it is an MMO and they never said whether it is first or 3rd person

Fat Princess3779d ago

As described by Rade Stojsavljevic.

"MAG is a new online shooter coming in 2009 where up to 256 players wage battles as 8-person squads in a new and unique World."

"MAG is a brand new IP and is not part of the SOCOM franchise so it won’t have that as part of the name."

I guess that comment was worthy since I got my 6th bubble :)

Thanks guys, but all I really need is 1 bubble (with the exception of this article):P

The only way this is a MMO if Battlefield is an MMO, its just a bigger Battlefield being done at a level that we (gamers) have never dreamed of. Planet side, which has RPG elements is a MMOFPS. Because it is one world.

Fat Princess3779d ago (Edited 3779d ago )

Exactly! And is Battlefield considered an MMO? The answer is NO, it is NOT. M.A.G. isn't labeled as "Massively Multiplayer Online Massive Action Game" LOL

supahbad3779d ago

i personally would call it an MMO, not an RPG, but it is a massive multiplayer that is online. no one can argue that but whatevs

Aren't both Huxley and the Agency FPSMMOs?

IaMs123779d ago

Yah was going to say Huxley is a new one that should be coming out on the Xbox 360 (Hopefully)

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3779d ago

Yes,I was planning to get Huxley for PC,but I remember the first time I heard about Huxley was from a PC Gamer back in 2005.But it still has'nt gotten off the ground.Annoying this waiting is.

TheIneffableBob3779d ago

Huxley is currently in open beta right now. I tried registering, but I got really frustrated at translating all the Korean and gave up.

Zerodin3779d ago

Mag is just a CONCEPT.
And it's not a new one.

rhood0223779d ago (Edited 3779d ago )

Can you even read?

The CONCEPT he mentions is HIS OWN IDEA FOR A GAME. Such as how he would set it up and how it would run.

He just got the idea from MAG, which is a VERY REAL GAME that has been in development for at least a year according to Zipper's interview at E3. Also, no one knows if MAG will be a third person shooter, i.e. a MMO Socom, or if it will be a FPS.

I will agree with your claim that the idea of a FPS-MMO is not new. Both Huxley and The Agency are of this genre.

saf1007923779d ago

It should definitely be third person IMO because we have a ton of FPS games around and little 3rd Person.Plus zippers has experience make 3rd Person games

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3779d ago

Wow Zerodin,you are a chump.So busy trying to find something bad about the PS3 that you tell yourself lies.Keep at it cause the 360's clock is ticking down to failure.Keep spinning.

rhood0223779d ago (Edited 3779d ago )

It's no use calling Zerodin out. You are probably on his ignore list. He's one of those "you said something I didn't like, so I'm going to ignore you."
