MAG is currently in its fourth beta testing stage (if you want in, just pre-order the hotly anticipated MMOFPS at GameStop) and we're all anxiously awaiting the game's final release on January 25.

However, we're also interested to learn more about the other PlayStation 3 game Zipper Interactive apparently has in the hopper. As pointed out by PS3Center , LinkedIn profiles for a few Zipper employees hint at this mysterious unannounced title: there's a senior software engineer who says he's currently in the process of "developing gameplay for two PS3 games" and Graham Kay, who used to be a design manager at the studio, says he worked on a "Massive Action Game (PS3) & Unannounced project (PS3)." That should be proof enough for now but the real question is, what the heck are they preparing outside of MAG ? We almost think it might be a smaller downloadable title or something, simply because it doesn't seem like Zipper has the manpower to work on both MAG – an insanely ambitious project to begin with – and some other blockbuster PS3 title at the same time. However, the big rumor is that it's SOCOM 4 , which is a definite possibility and good news for fans of the franchise.

By the way, you should definitely test out the MAG beta if you have the chance. It's one of those games that requires a great deal of attention and patience but once you accept that fact and settle down to the task at hand, you'll see just how special this game could be…

Well Zipper are indeed developing a second SOCOM for the PS3 so I don't know what this "Myestery project" is about. Syphon Filter 5 maybe? xD.

Can't wait 'till the next SOCOM.

i dunno, and as for mag, i dunno either, sounds great, amibitious and everything, but mw2, replaying mgs4, uncharted 2, finishing fallout3 plus ACII, GOW3 and GT5, theres a lot to do.

yea, i don't know where they find the energy or time to work on another project considering the scope of MAG and how much time they've spent on polishing this title…

maybe they have a much bigger team than we think they have…

i hope its socom 4!

ive been playing the MAG beta recently and well it takes to long to find a game, and honestly the maps are so huge i find myself getting killed in the back to have to restart all the way back at my spawn. ugh! it feels a lot like socom though which is good!

just reserve the game at gamestop. noone said you actually had to buy the game there! they'll refund your 5 bucks later or just throw it on another game later! simple!

I pray one of those is Socom 4.I'm a big fan of the series but I had to skip Confrontation since it had no single player campaign.

My guy inside Zipper tells me that they are working on a game called Socom: Karaoke Party. But, you didn't hear it from me. :p

I hope it's another SOCOM. this time with a single player / co-op campaign. You never know they may even use MAG tech to make it a Massive Action SOCOM.

BTW: MAG is great. looking forward to it and Bad Company 2.

I remember reading about this months ago from this site… Are we in some kind of new loop because this and the Bungie PS3 game stuff is old.

As a matter of fact my grandmother read about this when she was pushing a hoola hoop with a stick… With a stick… STICK!… Slurps cup of soda.

i dont know what the hell was going in gamestops and zipper were thinking with exclusive access. MAG basically died online because theres not much people playing because only gamestop preorders were allowed. If they had all the previous beta testers then i would've had a better feel for the game. but now all im doing is waiting for a game to start. I hope it wont happen to the full game release. add some bots or allow lobby merging like mw2 does.

I hope it's Socom but sadly I think it won't be, telling us a mystery game is in development and then revealed to be Socom? Highly doubt it's Socom but who knows.
