See MAG In Action
The whole "fight through the ranks, earn the right to command" bit sounds interesting. I love how FPS fans criticize the supposed lack of innovation in new games of the genre, as if any FPS games that came out in the last 5 years have been all that innovative.

I own and love the ps3. It has nothing to do with people wanting it to fail. Its just the fact that 256 players in a match is just too much. There are already lag problems with 16 player games on consoles. peer to peer networks are not going to support that many players without lag problems. Now if they hosted the matches on their own servers then it would work. Otherwise its just going to be nearly impossible to find lag free matches with 255 other players.
I also agree with some other comments saying it will be hard to communicate with other users because the lack of mics. Usually about 5 to 10 of 32 player matches in killzone 2 have mics. Thats just not enough. Its frustrating not being able to communicate with your teammates.
If they want this to be a great success, they need to host the matches on their own servers(Which would cause subscription fees), package headsets with all copies, and make the maps massive enough so players will not be constantly spawning on top of each other.
"geez it only takes one video for everyone without a ps3 to start shitting on it. I dont think they would develop this if they knew it was impossible to accomplish. "To be perfectly fair, I don't have a PS3 and I was shitting on it before any videos were released.
256 players = clusterfuck, just as OnLive = lag filled gameplay. It's not that these things can't be done, it's that the first attempt out of the gate rarely gets it right. PS3 has plenty of exlusive titles to be excited about--Uncharted 2 and God of War 3 come to mind--but this game still has a lot to prove.
i agree that a head set should be packed in with MAG. But i dont agree that people are giving it its last rights b4 its had a chance to prove anything. no one knows how much untapped potential is left in the ps3, im assuming their is a fair amount and that we should just wait n see..
