MAG Public Beta Invites Sent Out

Some lucky gamers have received the first wave of beta invites for Sony’s new online multiplayer game MAG. The following was posted on Joystiq when they received an invite:

According to the beta enrollment page, Sony “will be adding people in waves.” If you don’t see an invite in your inbox right now, don’t worry: you may be invited later. “If you do not receive an invite for the first wave you may still be invited in a following MAG Public Beta wave.”

Sony has already conducted a closed beta for MAG for over a month. The expansion of the beta to the public gives us hope that maybe — just maybe — we’ll be able to see MAG‘s 256-player online battles hitting the PS3 sooner rather than later.

New MAG Screenshots revealed

MAG, an upcoming MMO Shooter by Sony Computer Entertainment, was first revealed at E3 2008. The only visuals of the game that the general gaming public has seen so far was the debut trailer shown off at Sony’s E3 2008 press conference.

Unveiled today, we now have more of a feel of what the game will look like, play like, and feel like when it is finally released. One of the interesting details that we can acquire from these new screens are that the game may feature both a first person mode, and a third person mode. Look towards Sony’s upcoming E3 2009 press conference for more details to be given(hopefully).

A first look at an overview of one of the maps featured in the game, this thing is huge.

MAG only possible on PS3

In a recent conversation with VG247, SCEA hardware marketing boss John Koller stated that their upcoming MMO shooter MAG is only possible on the PlayStation 3.

“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.” said Koller at last week’s GDC, referring to their SCEA’s upcoming game MAG.

MAG was first announced at last year’s E3, shown at the end of Sony’s press conference. MAG not only is an impressive game to be on a console, but also the first game to feature up to 256 players on screen on a console. It is truly an accomplishment in technology to be able to feature all of the actions and features that 256 players can create on screen with no lag. Hopefully we get to see more of this amazing game at this year’s Sony E3 press conference.
