Sony’s upcoming massive FPS shooter is conveniently named, MAG. Massive Action Game. The game (developed by Zipper Interactive) will feature up to 256 players online. At 2008’s E3, this was Sony’s big announcement, yet it’s been a quiet storm since then. Well, here’s some screens to hold you over until the games release THIS YEAR, Fall ’09. VG247 spoke with SCEA hardware marketing boss John Koller about the anticipated title, MAG. Here’s an excerpt of what he had to say:
“MAG is a 256 online-player game which is spectacular. If you look at that competitively, it’s something that’s only possible on PS3. The processor speed, the ability of PS3 to showcase 256 players at any given time, and their actions.”
We’re really looking forward to this title, especially since it’s a FPS and we’re suckers for them. If it’s anything Like Killzone 2 or the SOCOM franchise, we’re sold.
