socom-confrontation

Thanks bryant16319!

Senior Producer of SCEA, Mark Rodgers has stated that SOCOM: Confrontation stands above both of Sony’s high-profile first-party FPS offerings by having the most simultaneous online connections on the PlayStation Network. He says SOCOM’s players have much more of a commitment to the franchise than other games.

It seems that dispite it’s rough start, SOCOM: Confrontation is doing quite well. Rodgers also stated that due to the communities commitment to the game, there will be a massive patch added to the game adding  ‘large scale and scope’ to the game.

    I’m glad this game turned out popular. When you take away the problems it had to start with it’s actually a really fun and deep squad-based tactical shooter.

    I don’t know why DLB hates on it all the time in the podcast, lol. If he’d just play it now that everything’s fixed, he’d probably love it seeing as he liked the other SOCOMs.

    I agree man this game is very good after the updates

    Also on that note i play Socom every now and then its a very fun game. Yes the menu’s are slow but the gameplay is pretty solid.

    COD4 is undoubtedly the biggest FPS, but this article is about PS3 exclusives.

    i never really got into socom, im sure if i do, i will pwn all u veterans lol joke. its good that it has support, something kz2 is lacking on a large scale that is. lbp surprisingly has about 11,000 playing it daily even with all that lag.

    This is news to me. I still play socom but not as much as I use to. Glad to see sony realizes there is a good fan base and makes the next socom the best one out of them all.

    Socom Confrontation is the most hated version of socom on any console. This statement by sony actually says more about how unpopular Resistance and killzone are rather than how popular socom is. If the next socom is made by slant six again it won’t sell, and DLB isn’t the only person that feels this game isn’t next gen. quality, 90% of all socom vets feel the same way. How about giving use numbers sony so we can compare.

    Socom: Confrontation sucks, but it’s still the only shooter that seamlessly combines third-person view with non-respawn gameplay. NON-RESPAWN IS SOOO MUCH BETTER THAN RESPAWN. That is the only reason I still play this game.

    How is this a good game? It takes forever to load, the sound goes out whenever it feels like it, you can’t shoot over objects that are waist high, it has no new maps becuase they are all remakes, half the time you can’t even win becuase the last surviver on the other team is hiding in the water, granades go off randomly, people get random headshots all the time, and the list goes on. This game is almost a year old and its still far from finished. On top of that its a multiplayer only game. The online for this game is last generation; how slant six managed to screw this up is beyond me. All socom fans wanted was Socom2 with next gen. graphics, instead we got this shit. But in all fairness the headset is nice.

    I don’t think the game is bad, I know its bad just by the facts I stated above and yes every game has issues, but for the same money you can get far more suprior games that offer both multiplayer and single player. Also this game has false advertisement. I’m just trying to keep it real for other gamers out there that might run out to get this.
