Sony: MAG is Only Possible on PS3, an Iteration of SOCOM

300°
287w ago - SCEA hardware marketing boss John Koller has claimed that upcoming multiplayer shooter MAG can only be built on PS3.

"MAG is a 256 online-player game which is spectacular," he said, talking to VG247 at GDC last week.

"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."

Koller went on to detail the Zipper Interactive game's concept.

"It's basically like an iteration of SOCOM, where you're maybe commanding the SEALs, and someone else has the Rangers, and the Green Berets, and so on," he said.

MAG was Sony's "big" announcement at the end of its 2008 E3 press conference. A movie was shown of the title, featuring soldiers, vehicles and lots and lots of guns.

It's planned for release late this year.

332w ago - French Web site Jeuxvideo have posted a new Socom Confrontation video for PS3 which can be viewed HERE.

Additionally, several screenshots can be seen at the source linked above.

A very rough translation states: "In lose speed for a certain time already the series of the SOCOM will be able to count on new a opus to try to start again itself.

Envisaged on PlayStation 3, SOCOM: Confrontation will be directed very clearly towards the online game since the title will make it possible thirty-two virtual soldiers to clash according to several modes of play.

The players will be able to thus incarnate various crack corpses such as the German KSK, British SAS, or the American SWAT. It is hoped in any case that this opus will be able to rectify the bar. The answer this autumn!"

Enjoy guys!
