Unless you have been hiding away you will know that Sony has announced a new title for the PS3 called MAG ( Massive Action Game).

Now while many are wondering why it is just looking like Battlefield in terms of visual design and whether or not the 256 players idea is going to work well, I still think that it has a lot of potential to bring a great multiplayer experience to the PS3.

A post on the US Playstation Blog has released a little bit of information:

“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.”

Here in the header image is the first look at the game. So, what do you think? I know its just one pic but it looks pretty good considering its scale.

    Well it may very well work fine, but i don’t think it’s going to work for us Saffas. Considering the lag we get with COD4 and BF. And i don’t even want to know about cap useage!

  • MAG is probably the worst game title evar, next too “legendary the box the game”.

    It’s a placeholder title, not the final name of the game.

    Still, I’d agree they should at least have worked its name out properly before annoucing it.
