Click to viewSony saved the final announcement of its E3 keynote for a concept using the placehold title of "MAG: Massive Action Game," Unveiled by Andy Beaudoin from Zipper Interactive, MAG - whose trailer looked like "SOCOM set 15 years into the future," according to our eyes on the scene, will immerse players in large online battles of up to 256 players. The trailer featured multiple terrain types, complex tactics, and sounds very much like a SOCOM MMO at this stage.

Anyone remember Joint Ops on PC? It had over 150 people in a game at once, LARGE maps but the thing that made me stop playing was it took you forevet to get to a point in the game and once you got shot and killed then had to trek all the way back to that point. Good game and the netcode wasnt that bad but if they said 150 players I would see it as believable. 256 just sounds like they are throwing a big number to grab your attention.
