MAG is Only Possible on PlayStation 3

John Koller, SCEA hardware marketing boss, claimed that the upcoming 256-player online game, MAG, can only be built on the PS3.

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,

MAG is neither a sequel to or built upon SOCOM, but when we get our hands on the game late this year, I think we will be having more fun than we are on SOCOM now. Anyone agree?
