    Recently we had the incredible opportunity to share with you a first look for the MAG project at the SCEA E3 Press Conference. We’re thrilled with the early responses from everyone and have been amazed at all the creative speculation about the game. If you haven’t seen the news, 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. You can watch the press event here or download it from the PLAYSTATION Store.

    Though it’s early to talk in depth about MAG, we can definitely quell some fears we’ve already heard from you about how MAG will need to compromise on gameplay to support its size. Well, it may be massive but it is an action shooter at its core. You can run around and shoot enemies, throw grenades, and drive vehicles just like any other shooter except with MAG you’ll do it with up to 256 players. The team at Zipper was one of the pioneers of online gaming on consoles with the SOCOM franchise and they’ve used this knowledge to create a brand new server architecture to make an original game like MAG possible.

    MMO yep. It seems more likely that the seperate squadrons will be in different parts of the map to avoid everyone clogging together and causing huge lag, but everyone will still be on the map somewhere or other.

    if its a fully fledge mmo type server then it wont matter if 100+ are in one small area of the map, it wont lag BUT may cause framerate issues. can the ps3 handle 100+ people on the same screen:P

    200+ people in a game would be shit

    you would spawn die spawn die 100x quicker than a normal shooter with 32 people

    What game's can't it get to work online?

    I've had little to no problems online with the PS3. GTA was a cock up early on but that was a problem between sony and rockstar... other than that i cant really think of any online game that has failed.

    Very odd thing to say, I've never had a problem getting online with my PS3 but had loads of complications with the 360.

    Anyway, that's for a different thread.

    nope no lag whatsoever because it is run byd edicated mmo type servers that caters for 1000's of players online. i think some of these 360 fanboys should bugger off and not spoil this thread with shit like L.A.G and how ps3 is shit for online gaming:lmao:

    fucking hate haters/fanboys. get out and discuss your beloved gears of war2 or whatever 360 exclusive game you got and leave us be:CONFUSE:

    Re: MAG (Massive Action Game), PS3

    I like the idea that in a huge 256 player game not everyone has the same goals. Although you're all on the same battlefield you'll be given different goals so one squad will be told to destroy the bridge while the defenders have a squad told to defend it and the outcome can change everyone else's games.

    It sounds amazing

    Re: MAG (Massive Action Game), PS3

    I agree with what PBB said, just sounds too good. It'll be like Home probably, take years later than planned to come out, then when it does it'll be really slimmed down and half the features wont be there.

    Then they'll charge you £ for changing your weapon or buying new khaki trousers for your soldier ...
