The PlayStation blog has been giving us a ton of information via special interviews, and the latest is the longest and – in our opinion – most intriguing of the bunch. It's all sorts of information about MAG !

They're calling it the first official unveiling of this hotly anticipated online game, and Jeff Rubenstein talks to Zipper Interactive's vice-president Michael Gutmann; it's a must-see interview ! They talk about a huge number of topics, but here's a taste before you click the link and watch the entire video: the game has been in development for over three years, there's actually a storyline in existence, the game will be free, and the team has worked on special communication tools to handle the ridiculous number of players that participate at once. And if for whatever reason you have even more questions after listening to all these awesome details, tune into the PS blog at 2 p.m. PST/5 p.m. EST for a LIVE chat with the development team! We really love the idea of total chaos and a completely new type of battle that we've never seen before; they're using combat we might be familiar with in the past, but the scale and size is absolutely mind-boggling. "Objective-based" game modes sound extra appealing to us, even though the "Domination maps" should also be super fun.  What won't this game offer?

We could talk about this interview for quite a long time, but really, you just need to watch it. Set aside 12 minutes and listen to what Gutmann has to say; we promise you won't be disappointed!

Im wondering if after you die you can respawn, because I hope you cant to add a greater sense of realism.

It would be cooler if you have a 10-25 second respond, and while your waiting they show you inside the plane ready to paracute off!!

So it IS free to play? Now I'm getting it for sure, I'm sorry but I have to be a Fanman here a moment: 360 owners are gonna be sad and/or furious when this releases.

360 fans doesnt seem to be excited about any of the ps3 exclusive games. exception being mgs4.

when i sit in a chat box in the 360, half the conversation is about how crappy the ps3 is.

when i sit in a chat box in a ps3, no one really talks about the 360.

again, this is generally speaking.

No, I didn't understand either. I thought maybe it would be free to download, but then you pay per month or something.

Im guessing they will make up the Sever cost by having micro-transactions,like being able to download new wepon skins and stuff. Hell it works for HOME so MAG should fare well.

I think it'll be a boxed game like Call of Duty for example, then you just go to play online and get into the game…or maybe I've got it wrong??

@SHADOW: Qore is different,it's not a monthly fee to play a game and is not required to better enjoy your PS3.It's more like an online magazine,besides they give out one free episode once and a while.

Ya, really, I don't really know Qore that can even be compared. Shadow seems to be a very sarcastic, and somewhat negative, character.

I can see it now, PS3 owners across the world going to (both virtual and real) war as the 3 factions.

I also see many 360 owners crapping themselves and being violently sick with shoooter envy as they look down at there wimpy Halo's online capacity and wonder why it is so small. Ok that was way to fanboyish but who cares…256 PLAYERS ONLINE FTW!!!!!
