If you're a fan of our massive 256-player first-person shooter, MAG, then today's news should be of great interest to you.
Truth be told, we have so many tremendous revisions coming to our "ever-changing global war" that it's almost impossible to tell you about everything we have planned in a single article... but we have to begin somewhere, and we're starting with PlayStation Move!
