Sony shows first in-game screenshot of MAG

To make up for that awful CGI trailer that impressed nobody at E3, Sony has posted the first in-game screenshot of MAG. If you have not being keeping up to date, MAG (which stands for Massive Action Game) is a new PS3 exclusive multiplayer centric title developed by Zipper Interactive. The game boasts up to 256 players, with users divided into 8-player squads to keep things from getting too silly. Zipper are most famous for their work on a half dozen SOCOM games over the past few years.

Even though the aspect ratio of the screen is a bit wonky Rade Stojsavljevic, MAG’s senior producer has confirmed it is a real screen. “Yes, that’s an actual screenshot running on a PS3. The image was cropped to center on the action,” he comments in a reply to a question on the US PlayStation Blog.

Now I wish they’d change the silly name. A game should really never have the word ‘game’ in its name.
