Leaked MAG Screenshots Found?
Okay, we know all of you are waiting for fresh news on MAG, and so far, we've only seen brief mentions of the game (please read the clarification update through the link). Unfortunately, we really can't find much official info for you...but we can sure as hell give you some unofficial media!
As Joystiq pointed out earlier, we may have the first set of leaked screenshots for the hotly anticipated military MMO. Remember, this is the game that will smash all the old-fashioned online barriers by allowing up to 256 players on the battlefield at once, and everyone is anxiously awaiting some real media. Those Flickr pics are hardly confirmed but they're certainly pretty, even though we have no actual evidence behind them; we don't know if they came from a real games journalism source or directly from a Sony FTP server, for instance. There's no doubt that the format and style seem to match the descriptions we've heard, but without anything solid or concrete, we're going to have to remain skeptical. If we were convinced that the screenshots were real, we would've already added them to the site, but that ain't gonna happen until someone from Sony says, "yep, they're authentic." In the meantime, we've perused through the set of 28 pics and marveled at the epic massiveness shown in several of them. We're really hoping to get a full video trailer at E3 - it would make sense, as the game was officially announced at last year's show - and if that happens, it's gonna rock the room.
MAG is one of those titles that's going to gain a bunch of hype and PR steam as 2009 rolls onwards. You can expect it to grab many a headline over the next few months, and we can't wait to see how things turn out.
