A member of the official PlayStation forums has just received the latest Game Informer issue and has posted a picture with confirmation that Sony's new action title will be an FPS.
cod and killzone fans will be pleased with dis!!
LAME if you ask me
I'm actually really intrigued by this concept. It might turn out sucky, and hearing that it'll only be FPS is kinda sad, but props to the dev's for trying something interesting. I personally like the FPS perspective. It feels more... immersive. Makes the world feel a LOT bigger.
I actually wanted this game, but reading it is an FPS I wont buy this one.
...noone asked you! :)
What's wrong with FPS? I thought it was FPS to begin with... remember the screen shots posted?
FP3 = Run around with a gun in your face, put cross hairs over enemies, shoot 'em up. TP3 = Run around with a buttock in your face, put cross hairs over enemies, shoot 'em up. "Wow, I'm very excited for MAG." "Waitt it's FPS instead of TPS? I don't care about it any more." How is this even possible?
Its like this. A hot thick beautiful sexy girl wants to show her FACE to you. "Oh yes!" A hot thick beautiful sexy girl wants to show her BUTTOCKS to you. "Man, I thought she was gonna show me her face. Screw it, I don't care about her anymore." Oh wait... I still don't get it. >_<
^ That might be the dumbest analogy I've ever heard.
5x more interested in this now. a 256player fps sounds pretty damn good...i'm thinking day one purchase for me.
"Oh wait... I still don't get it. >_<" That implies its not supposed to make sense.
in before: "FPS is boring now unless it's on 360, then yay!"
I enjoy anygame with a gun regardless of FPS/TPS gameplay. I prefer FPS for many reasons. Its adds more realism to the game and tactics. It makes more sense. Do you have a camera floating behind your body as you walk around or not? I don't think so. I hate many TPS games. A few are exceptional, but many are crap. Not just because its TPS, but because the gameplay doesn't match the TPS genre.
I thought it was always a FPS. Why are people so surprised?
Let me guess, the same jungle, cave and destroyed urban area setting which consist of a color palate of Grey,Brown and Green. I think FBS have an agenda to make you feel depress. You can hate on Halo all you want but at least there is some color in the game.
I REALLY wanted this to be 3rd Person... This makes me rethink this title as well... Nothing set in stone yet for me though.
i was intrested..but now im not this is ganna be the same as every other fps released this gen
Seriously wtf? How does it being FPS change anything? It would be the same game except in third person. You guys are ridiculous.
@Robondacob - Don't worry dude, it's just the new "go to" excuse for xbox fanboys. Obviously it won't matter when Halo 4 is released, or Bioshock 2, but it matters with MAG DAMNIT! :D
Ignorant... It matters to the people who have played the SOCOM series forever from zipper back on the PS2 (which was 3rd person). Not 360 Fanboys. This stems back even before 360 was out... Think before you speak.
why the hell is there an 'only' in the title?
If you read the comments made above, they were trying to say that it will be another generic FPS because it isn't in third person. That has nothing to do with Socom. It's a fricking perspective view. Who gives a crap if it is not third person?
Who gives a crap? The people who wanted it to be a 3rd person shooter. Easy answer...
stick to the single player games sony thats where u shine dont try to be like the shooterbox 360..doesnt fit u
Way to answer my rhetorical question with an idiotic answer. You sure are witty and totally proved my argument wrong. Kudos.
@Riven - But it's not SOCOM, it's MAG. FPS tend to be much better than TPS. I've played SOCOM as well, and I still prefer FPS. FPS sell more than TPS unless it's like Gears Of War, which it won't be.
MW2, Bioshock 2 (if as good as the first) and KZ2 are enough. Enough FPS sony, stick with RPGs, racing, and action please.
yeah since we need more racing games ...(roll eyes)
NO interest in this game
Bring out the racing games I'm craving for some..
how can someone NOT be interested in this game? I admit that yes, the shooter market is a little over saturated but seriously, you gotta wonder how 256 players is gonna work out. That's what has me most excited for this game. Hell even 360 users should be interested. 256 players online (in an fps) hasn't been seen before. If this was on 360, even though I don't have one, I'd still be interested in the game just to see how this can impact multiplayer shooters in the future.
will blow away killzone 2 in online, im sorry but it will blow away killzone 2 online. but thats good for us ps3 owners we get it all, MODERN WAREFARE 2, MAG, KILLZONE 2, ASSASINS CREED, UNCHARTED,RATCHET,RAGE,TEKKEN 6,BIOHSOCK 2, DEAD RISING 2,NINJA GAIDEN SIGMA 2. so im happy but mag will be on its own league when it comes to online play, why? becous it will basically be like modern ware fae 2, but bigger and cooler. lets just wait for some in game gameplay and modes (perks ect). this will be a day one bu for me
can we please stop with putting tags on any new game to be "killer" or "blower" of this or that game? It is so getting old.
We all know what you're trying to do. Stop trying to shoehorn your ignorance into every comment you make. And I agree with 2.1. Game A is good. Game B is good. Game C is good. They're good for different reasons. THEY CAN COEXIST.
lol, sony has always been great with racing games, ALWAYS. FPS just feel tired out. It would have been fine if it was third-person though.
about Wild arms, Darkcloud 3, Legend of dragoon 2, Rogue galaxy 2 and some other sony rpg ips that will come to ps3
My favorite racing simulator is GRID. That's multiplatform. Your point, merely an opinion, is now officially rendered moot.
Kain82 yes those rumors came from Vgtilt, so i am sceptical about it. Not saying that some of those games won't come regardless of what Silogon or Gamesblow said but since they bailed out the way they did i am sceptical even if it is a rumor. swiftshot Come on man, there are so many racing games, even more so then FPS games. In case of racing games we really don't need more of those, all you do is racing, there is no story. In case of FPS genre (of which i am not biggest fan) you can justify new FPS game because it is going to have new (good) story, or continuation of old one, or new boss battles, etc. In case of racing game it is same stuff, racing. All i need when it comes to racing is GT5(full game) and Motorstorm games, every thing else is just beating dead horse. Well ok Forza 3 will be cool if you are 360 owner.
Love GT5 and Motorstorm and u forgot Wipeout! Everything else is meh...for me. Only an opinion. I didn't like grid, or NFS, or especially Pure, didn't see what people saw in that game. On topic: bummer MAG is FPS...i was really hoping for 3rd person, but I'll still give it a shot. I guess i'll have to wait for Warhawk 2 for my TPS online fix!!
how is fps any different from tps? Is it because you can't move the camera around the corner? You're still aiming guns at other people's faces, whether it's fps or tps doesn't matter as long as the game's fun
I can no longer warrant it. If it was third person, I'd buy it in a heartbeat, but Killzone 2 is enough FPS for me.
So much FPS :( FPS games have overloaded my shelf :Call of Duty 4,Halo 3,Crysis,bioshock,The Orange box,Resistance 2,Crysis,battlefield:bad company,Fallout 3,Killzone 2,STALKER,and Fear 2....
I thought it was already announced as a FPS?
I'm glad it's an FPS. I think the third-person SOCOM formula is getting annoying, and the newest SOCOM was pretty bad. FPS games are just easier to control in my opinion. Being able to see your character on screen due to third-person perspective adds nothing to the gameplay in my opinion, and in fact often hinders my ability to appreciate the game due to the more cumbersome aiming controls that come along with it. Anyway, I like the FPS format, and I don't think that something as silly as the perspective of the camera in the videogame can equate to an oversaturated market or whatever people's problem is with the FPS thing. There are tons of different types of game you can play that take place within the first-person framework. MAG promises to be a unique experience. As were Bioshock, Oblivion, Fallout 3, etc. Is the game going to be fun? That's all I care about.
I didn't play the new Socom that much I couldn't really get into it but doesn't Socom have both 3rd and 1st person views I know that III and CA both had it on the PS2 you could play either way, I don't understand why M.A.G. could not give you both as well. I was really looking forward to this game still am in a way but will be renting it first.
I can't for some 256 man on man action. >.>
sorry, I had to laugh at your comment. [email protected] thing I ever read on N4G.
>.< I will always prefer a TPS to a FPS. Enough with the FPS please.
I see scans . What more proof do you guyz want. Funny how VGCHARTZ crap gets approved but information with proof scans dont.. I am approving it.
Err its against N4G guidelines to post or even approve something from a forum, didn't you do the test? Approve if you want but if you get banned...
Yeah this isn't flamebait!! Wait....
Forum posts are allowed on this site as long as they have credible and solid information on what they are talking about. This forum post for example has an image from a credible magazine, so this is N4G worthy. Also, if a developer of X type of game creates a forum post about a game it is also N4G worthy. I'm a trainee and even I know this. People should really retake the test. Anyways on topic, the game is interesting but I am let down by the fact that it is only in FPS.
Good. I don't like third-person.
How dare you have an opinion different than mine! *angry face* I have no choice but to emasculate you by hitting the disagree button! HA HA! Vengeance is mine! :P
people honestly we should all be thankful that we're complaining that theres TOO many great games coming out. Things could be much worse than having to choose which amazing game to buy because there is so many
Damn. I get so bored of FPS games. I've even avoided KZ2 because I'm so sick of them. The only FPS I find worth playing anymore is L4D. I would have loved this in 3rd person. Socom and Warhawk are my favourite online games, both 3rd person. I just find 1st person repetative
how can u not have kz2..... that game is rlly pro.
killz one 2 (the best fps in consoles) resistence 2 much fun for play, and now mag...ONLY IN PS3 suck this bots.
FPS is more "realistic" than TPS that's why in SOCOM (and i imagine Gears1/2) people just wait behind walls watching with that "cheating" third person eye, then BAM! they jump out and frag you, or chop you up with a bayonet chainsaw....i guess. FPS>TPS
I would've prefer a TP view, because quite frankly FPS's are a plague right now. I know that TPS's view and gameplay can be a bit annoying sometimes if not implemented well on an online only game, but these guys know what they are doing and they can succeed by making an awesome TP online game this gen. However, being a FPS won't necessarily damage the game. It will only make it one more in the group unless they go the extra mile by implementing very cool gameplay mechanics or by adding creative ideas hardly seen on other online only video games.
I Want TPS.....
Man, some of you sure bit** a lot. I think it will be better as a FPS anyways.
Can't wait to see if it turns out great. I'm glad it's FPS because I prefer that over TPS. It's just more realistic.
3rd person shooters blow! thats wut killed mgo for me. this is excellent news
On such a large scale map, I think that it's better that it would be FPS. 1) TPS = corner camping mania. I mean yes, I do like Socom and play socom confrontation all the time, but TPS doesn't make it more strategic, it just makes people camp more. Of course, I still wreck fools and tea bag them (psn = JunkYardPuppy...you've probably tasted my sack.) 2) FPS makes the experience a lot more immersive, the map feels bigger, and you actually feel like you are in a war. With TPS you feel more like you are controlling a toy guy, you yourself are not apart of the action. 3) with 256, would TPS even work that well? I mean all that would happen is this; Everyone with there huge range of view, just waits behind boxes until some non-camping soul runs by and then hops out and shoots them. The game would not be as intense, it would be the opposite. There would be no massive battles to capture points, because everyone will be trying to get "one-up" on someone by hopping out from behind a wall. W/e I agree with their decision and all you people who said you won't get the game now....Good, I hate playing with whiners on my team.
I'm still wondering if they will have a cover system? Rainbow Six Vegas/Killzone 2 anyone? I doubt it but it would be less generic of a FPS game if it had one. I sure hope it does.
if it made by zipper then it has a whole hell of alot of potential imo. even i'm getting tired of FPS's this gen with COD4 and killzone 2. the only FPS i foresee myself getting is MW2 and maybe this if they can pull 256 players off and gameplay doesn't suck
I don't know why people are disappointed by the camera being an FPS but it still be a tactical game with hopefully tanks and the like.
I think it's because the market is completely saturated with fps's andpeople are beoming very bored of them. I don't blame them, Killzone 2, Resistance, The Darkness and Bioshock is all I need. Not gonna buy another one unless it's a sequel to those games I mentioned just so I can finish the story.
Good ! SOCOM is a big flop in my opinion, Im glad they didnt create a TPS.
