VG247: Zipper multi-shooter MAG is to be playable at E3 next week, SCEE has just confirmed to VG247.
Wow theyll need to gather all peapole attending E3 for a complete game room
lol, i don't think they are going to have 256 ps3s, but maybe 10 seems possible. I think that they are going to need lots of people for the beta, so everyone on N4G should be able to get in.
Probably will have 16 on hand for squad-on-squad gameplay, along with however many they can get back at the dev base playing on the same shard while E3 is going on.
God I hope this game is released this year.
Can't wait to play this title. Zipper is a great dev and I hope they deliver on this one. Side by side with Warhawk, this game could potentially complete anybody's online gaming needs when it comes to shooters. Well, perhaps mixed with a little COD and SOCOM. ;-)
you're too much of a sony champion for me! but if they pull off mag, then this could easily be one of the best on-line games yet made! and was one of the things that made get a ps3! please let this game come this year.
Well, despite our differences in platform love, we can both agree that this game looks like it could be fun as heck.
'Bout the only thing I'm going to use G4 for is for their full coverage of E3. Hope they get some good recorded gameplay of MAG while there. I'm not a fan of FPS games, but MAG looks like something that could make for a fun and engaging game.
I'd guess people at E3 would be playing with beta testers.
Zipper have JUST finalised the E3 build.
when it's playable at MY house. It'd be nice (and unrealistic to expect) that all of the demo's @ E3 be released on the store.
what does this article have to do with the xbox 360? you must really have the xbox on your mind, all the time.
Your in the Open Zone. What do you expect. Every story, no matter what, is somehow related to the 360 and PS3
would be nice as well, just in case you dont have G4 you could at least see the trailers. Though in the past the PS Store has covered E3. E3 playable demos on the PS Store, that would be epic...
I can't wait to hear how the controls are and how the game plays. We need some good hands-on reports of the latest build.
I know guru. After the positive reviews of the last press play through of the last build having a few good, informative opinions would be great. I was expecting a pretty big blow out for MAG at E3 anyway and hopefully people will be equally happy with the newer build AND tell us more, particularly, about the controls.
is this game supposed to be released in fall 2009? if so, then damm. sony's got itself quite a fall line up.
if u want MAG so bad!!!! buy PS3. LOL
SO uninterested in this game. Im a Socom fan and this looks like just another online FPS game. Its going to have to really impress me to get me to buy it. FPS are just so boring.
can't wait to see MAG in action
There is a lot of great things going on at E-3 and from what we've been shown, honestyly, MAG isn't one of them. It is underwhelming on many fronts. We haven't had a chance to actually play it, but we've seen it played and seen the demo they will be showing at E-3's presentation and it's not something to get excited about. Just being honest.
Damn the last time i saw you post was like a half a year ago.
what do you know that we don't ......cough it up!!! : )
What I know is this... The graphics are about on par with Socom's for Ps3. Maybe a tad, smidge, better. But barely. The texture work is very dull and flat. Lots of browns and oranges... We didn't try the game ourselves, weren't allowed to touch the controller, but what we were shown is something very similar to a hybrid of Warhawk/Socom/Full Spectrum Warrior and Quake Wars. The maps are very large and spread out, but again... very ugly in spots.
@blow sweet, i expected the graphics to be worse than Socom anyway due to the size of the game.. that's good news
I can't wait to see the game in action.
If you disagree...you are nothing but a Microsoft Lackey!!!
damn wish i could try the game :)
Never know they might have the devs somwehere else so they can get an online game going... But then that puts yourself at the mercy of the internet =P
"Stay here and play with all the E3 PS3 fans!" "but can't go n attend...." "NO...STAY HERE AND PLAY! WE MUST SATISFY" "ok...=(" If anything, 16 squad games f sure =D, very sweet!
