Online gaming has become huge with large numbers of people playing the same game at the same time. However, 256 people at the same time seemed to be out of reach at one time. Now, Sony has launched MAG, which promises exactly that.
Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) announced today the North American launch of MAG exclusively for the PlayStation®3 (PS3™) computer entertainment system. Developed by Zipper Interactive–creator of the best-selling SOCOM series and one of the first studios to bring the PlayStation 2 online with SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs–MAG features unprecedented online action on a scale never before devised. A first-person, online-only shooter, MAG lets players experience battles with up to 256 real people across a global battlefield, and employs a sophisticated command structure that aligns players into squads of eight to work together in order to progress through a persistent world known as the “Shadow War.”
Zipper is also known for their popular SOCOM series. If you are a fan of those titles, you probably want to get in on MAG.
