First MAG Gameplay Trailer Shows 256 Player Action

Zipper Interactive's ambitious Massive Action Game may not be as visually impressive as, say Killzone 2 or Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, but give 'em a break. They're dealing with 256 players at a time.

While the PlayStation 3 game's first gameplay trailer may not show all 256 combatants on-screen at once, cumulatively we'd wager they make that number, if not exceed it. If you're a fan of the SOCOM series or want a big, big Battlefield-style experience, I'm guessing MAG will already be in your sights.

If not, see if the PS3 exclusive's first real-time game footage and its promises of "unrivaled action" floats your boat.

    Pretty sure when you're playing an online multiplayer match (that has freaking 256 players....) you don't give a crap if it isn't as visually impressive as Killzone 2 or Halo 3 for examples.

    You have a grenade about to explode next to you & a gun barrell in your face... shoot and run and throw a grenade. Not stand their and look around amazed with the graphics.

    Great graphics help, and this has decent graphics. But just the number 256 beats the visual experience of Killzone 2 ANYDAY!

    Yeah, I'll believe the 256 players when I see it. Other games prior to this have had the ability for 256 players, but no one ever ended up using it due to the lag.
