apart from the 256 players, what's in that list that would clearly put it ahead of Cod4 or Halo let alone what we expect of MW2 or know from OFP2, Arma 2 or BF:BC2.

I am a Sony fan and was looking forward to this game but it's getting way overhyped.

It will be a good game but apart from the number playing and better graphics, nothing shows it will be better than cod4 or mw2(which will be better than the original).

map size 1 square km. Wish they had based the game more on BF2(PC) or Warhawk rather than Killzone2, then they would have huge maps and truly awesome mp online gameplay with fully usable air/land vehicle. Oh well, bring on Arma2 and co.

What sets it apart from other shooters? Let's see.

1. A command structure.
2. A way to assign orders for subordinates in online.
3. An incentive system for following orders (follow orders, earn XP).
4. A persistent online universe where your factions victories/losses affect the outcome, and what weapons/abilities/skills your faction has access to.
5. Play as the same faction all the time. I beleive what they will do is allow you to create multiple characters, but your XP won't transfer from one character to another.

It looks like MAG is set to up the bar for squad-based tactical gameplay.

Don't get me wrong, it all looks terribly ambitious, but these are some REALLY good ideas, and if they pull off half of it, it will be awesome. In any case, I hope other devs take notice and start incorporating some of these features.

Some of the info here sounds a bit out of place. Being able to change factions in battle? In all the other interviews they said you create a character and stick with one faction.

I don't think you can change factions IN battle. But they did say that you could play with another faction only it would coust you EXP.
