Socom Confrontation is now with a few new images reveal that some urban maps that will become available in this game to be played until 32 simultaneously on the Playstation Network...
Those are pretty big maps, this game looks awesome.
Well, since this game is a "download & mulitplayer" only game it does not look too bad. But GRAW2 looks better, and it was on the PS3 as well. But the graphics are more than good enough for me if the only play is up to par. Not to mention the screens could be low quality scans that distort the image. A lot of games don't look the same until you see it in motion.
Who is lamback talking about?
@Json... not sure who he is talking about. Must just be venting :) Anyway, this game looks like its lighting engine and physics engine is in place but like every other game its textures and such havent been updated yet. The graphics will look very good when this is complete I dont have any doubts about that.
no one hear has bashed the game (yet) and json even said he was gonna buy the game so stop getting so angry at him
I am not talking to Jason, i dont know who that guys is. He replayed to my comment.
he was on about graw looking better and then you started talking about graw so you were obviously replying to him. I dont really care if you were talking to him or not to be honesnt BTW the game looks good and im definetly getting it because the other socoms are some of the best online miltary games ive ever played
I dont know if you played the older Socoms (1&2) but GRAW was horrible compared to those games. Yea GRAW had better graphics, but the gameplay online was horrendous. I have not played a game yet that compares to Socom online.
32 player online multiplayer. Maps will be bigger than graw they have to make cuts in visuals. If you want to compare this, you compare it with another game that has closer to 32 player online and similar sized maps. Since warhawk is the only game i know that does such, it looks better than warhawk so its a great looking game
I am confused at what the hell is being said in this thread... I dont even know what some of you guys are talking about.
hahahahahaha*laughs and points*hahahahahha " i don't know who that guy is but he replied to me" *laughs and runs over towards lamback and throws a potato at his kidney.* hahahaha lamback is so confused hahahaha uuuuuhhhhh good times:) on topic socom was never really about graphics it was all about the gameplay and even when this game has no single player, if its anything like socom online on the ps2 then its a must have for me.
yea, dont worry about the gameplay. This game has always been good and the gameplay is top of the line for a third person shooter. With this running on next gen hardware i doubt this game will disappoint.
But i cant get mad at anything Lamback says, with that avatar. That Llama pic just cracks me up, remind's me of The Emperor's New Groove
this looks phenomenal
better than phenomenal!
How can you guys say that with a strait face? This looks downright horrible. Have you never played GRAW? Absolutely blows this out of the water. Jesus.
RealTime i can say that with a straight face because, we can see that this has the potential and will indefinately use it to be a success. Also GRAW is nothing compared to Socom, never has been and never will be
Actually, GRAW is better. I know. I own both. :) Do you?
That is your opinion but, "FACT" is socom is a bigger franchise then graw, heck it was the biggest online game for the ps2. In my opinion it is a better all around game then graw and the game looks pretty damn good so far but I will agree that graw still looks better graphically, but overall. Socom Series>>Graw Series.
SOCOM = greatest online 3rd person shooter ever made. Hands down. Nothing else tops it, if you have played SOCOM2 back in the day for a couple of years then you know what I mean. This will bring back that full clan support ive been missing. "Gamebattles" days. Ahhhh good times...
It's still relatively early days so I wont comment on the visual's, but the level design is looking fantastic.
yeah if its due out September 16th then they are in the alpha stage of development. Plenty of time to spruce the visuals up. I have no doubt this will look absolutely fantastic when it is released.
The screenshots look like they havent got that textures in them, they could do some more on lighting as well. But I dont mind graphics if the gameplay is good :D. So far so good. Looks like we will be getting a P90 in the game too.
It reminds me of Assassin's Creed.
No, it looks like the map Crossfire from SC2.
SC2? If you mean Socom 2 then yes but it is called Crossroads, and that is the map.
yeah thats it! I've been playing to much COD4! Thats were the Crossfire hybrid came from! I thought that was it though I wasn't sure. :)
looks very promising. i like the realistic and sharp look (the opposite of Rainbow Six Vegas, and all unreal engine games).
You people crack me up. Making up sh!t just try to keep from saying anything bad about it. Well i will say it for you. It looks average "EVERYTHING LOOKS AVERAGE" the graphics look average the maps look average and i am sure the gameplay will be average. GRAW looks better than this. And before i hear anyone say a comment about "Well its about the gameplay" or the classic "It looks better in motion i am sure". Just dont even type anything in ok.
It never ceases to amaze me what "some" people can ascertain from a few low res screen shots. EDIT: Props go out to the phantom disagreer/bubble snatcher, we all appreciate your contribution to the cause.
@Utalkin2me: Mate not bashing u, everyone has his/her own opinion and I respect that, but its a multiplayer game, I saw Call of Duty 4 graphics in multiplayer and singleplayer game, they are not the same mate. Plus the maps are much smaller then this. But again if you don't feel like it, then forget it, I am sure there are many games on both consoles that will catch your attention this year. So enjoy;)
Socom online has always been 10x better than GRAW. Yes GRAW looks amazing but the online play is a crapfeast( i own the game)! So once again gameplay>>>>> graphics!
I dont care what you say, I am going to type it. It is about gameplay. GRAW 2 was terrible online. Since that is all I cared about, I sold it the next day. Socom is the best online game, period. Socom 2 still blows away all other online shooters, Halo, GRAW, CoD4, R6V, all of them. You obviously have never played since you said "and im sure the gameplay will be average" No one that has played Socom 1-2 online has said that. No one. Dont comment on a game you have never played. Get out.
To bad it´s so far away =(
I have to agree with Utalk. Fishy thats what the article is about, commenting on the screens right. So as he said people are trying to save grace. So you are in turn of what he just stated.
What? I'm here to share my opinions, thats it. Please dont try and draw me into "your crowd".
umm, yeah you can comment on the screens and in fact they dont look very good at all but you have to take it with a grain of salt. 1.) This game is still 5 months out. 1a) This game doesnt have a TON of content so updating the graphics will not take too long. 2.) Utalk is taking these screens as if they were taken from the final build. He is doing this not because he is ignorant but because he is a fanboy. 3.) Fishy is the one being level headed here, not Utalk. So sit down, take notes from Fishy and ignore that fanboy screaming and yelling about nothing at all.
the hype it deserves.
It looks fantastic and scale of the maps are really very big. I never played Socom before, how is its gameplay like? I mean is it fast pace like resistance or is more of a tactical shooter like Rainbow Six?
Right in between. A great mix of tactics (Demotilion) and great for running an gunning(TDM)...pure fun though. Play it your way, there isn't a right way to play Socom. For a PSN online game only it looks great, just as good as GRAW online(offline is a different story).
@shysun: thanks for the info. :)
If it never ceases to amaze you then why comment. You didnt comment on the article. I didnt read anything from you about your thoughts of why the screens looks average, did i? I could give to craps less if you have acquired a cult following on here................. I am going to start calling you idiots out or fanboys as i like to call them. I am not on here to make friends i am here to voice my opinion and i am going to continue to do so. If i offend you just ignore me.
Comment #3. Please leave me out of your games. N4G is not some sort of chat room. If your not interested in Socom, sod off, I am. I've had enough of this thread. Oh and by the way, I own every console.
Unf*cking believable... so he cant comment on level design and say the graphics arent at a mature level yet? The only fanboy in here is you. Quit trolling and go get laid.
are you even remotely interested in socom?? just curious
If you was interested in the article then you would have posted so. And also i own all consoles and all hanhelds. @TheExecutive I am taking my post on the screens, i dont care if the screen are 5 years old. I am going to voice my opininon on the article even if you dont like it, cause i dont care if you do or not. The problem is you are taking notes from fishy and he didnt post anything about the article. Just come in here to read comment and didnt like what i posted. So he decided to attack me with a comment. Then he turns around and states i am playing games and such. Which is so childish and if he cant comment on views and ideas then he needs to stop commenting.
Stop addressing your comments directly at other members. This is not a chatroom. Stick to talking to your fanboy friends and leave the actual gamers alone.
You are rediculous dude. I am not here to make friends either and I will be ignoring you after I finish posting this but just looking at an early build of a game and not having any foresight into what it WILL look like is RETARDED. Then, you take it to the next level and say that anyone who does have the foresight to say that he wont comment on the gfx and will only comment on level design (which btw is JUST as relevant to this article as the gfx)is not on topic is rediculous. Do you think you can only tell what the gfx will look like from a screenshot? Here are a couple of things I got from it that have nothing to do with the gfx: 1.) there will be more than one type of faction 2.) we will be able to overlook the battlefield via roof access. 3.) The game is set in the desert 4.) it looks like the maps are large 5.) Straight up Urban Combat 6.) the draw distance is very large and should make sniping a blast. 7.) sixaxis tilt controls will be used to lean. These controls are 100% adjustable. 8.) You are able to crouch, stand, and be prone. 9.) you are able to rest your weapon on things and fire for accuracy while kneeling. 10.) there are sewers you can move through in order to avoid being detected. Does this mean that I am offtopic? NO. In fact, most of what I just posted WAS ABOUT LEVEL design. The only one really off topic here IS YOU. I dont know what your problem is but get over it.
Open Zone is that way utalk ----->
Well i have to agree with Utalkin2me. I think he was a little harsh, but i think he was attacked for no reason. But anyways i am sure the screens are Multiplayer screens. So they are not going to look as good. But considering COD4 they have to raise the bar a little.
Attacked? Fishy comment is obviously directed at both achira and Utalkin2me. He wasnt the one who started addressing their comments at people. That was you and Utalkin2me, your the only ones doing the attacking.
Its a Multi-player only game, so of course it's from the online version...... do you guys know any thing about this game?
How many times has it been stated that this is "Online Only" this is not a offline game.
looks nice :D
This game will bigger than everyone thinks, it will draw a lot of ps2 owners that are still playing Socom 2 online to the new generation
Even if this is the way the visuals will be when it's done i would be more that happy with it, but this is one of sony's big name titles so i doubt it. As long as the gameplay is as good as the other socom games.
At that sony fandriod first off if you use xbot than you're not sapost to post in the gamer zone. But that just shows that the mods are sony fandriods. but thats not my point. If a game is multiplayer only it SHOULD have BETTER graphics because the developers doesn't have to spend time on the single player and this game is an exclusive title and should look way better because it uses "T3H power Of T3h CELL".
This is a Playstation Network game like Warhawk... meaning its WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY better than any Xbox live arcade game. Let me state that again... its WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY better than anything on Xbox DEAD arcade. This is another reason why PS3 rules and is KILLING the XFLOP in sales. And these are just random pictures. Its going to be a good game. Better tahn anyhting on the FLOPbox Live you can download.
So I assume that this game costs $5 because you are comparing it to XBLA games. I suppose that game looks pretty good for only $5.
Its Socom HELLO!!!! Tested and true, Refined and Awesome! Cell and PS3 goodnes helps but no need. But then again Cry some more that wish xbox live could do anything as great as this for a FREE to PLAy Downloadable Game.
I may like to partake in the technical aspects of this internet conversation. As many of you Socom vet's know as well as I. Socom was never a graphically advance game. The thing that got me and many others hooked to playing this game to its third iteration was its game play and online features. As far as this release goes its looking great. I see many of you comment and critique the game's "looks" with not up to par graphics and textures. Look at the first screen with the tower. I believe that map was called "crossroads". Its been a while since I last played. From that one shot the geometry is looking very smooth, if this is a scan, I can't wait to see it running. Textures do not need to be so extravagant since we are not going to stare at the walls, we are going to dodge bullets. The player models look great if not excellent for its new installment debut. Keep in mind since this is downloadable theres room for downloadable content, upgrades to game models/maps/guns, etc. Updates and such do not limit the possibility's. Also did any of you catch that on the 5th picture, it states the maps are based in America. But yet its so oblivious where they are actually located. Take a look at the second picture and see the Eastern India Lion/Panther.
Never played a socom but this looks alright. It's only an online game?
yes its an only online game, like warhawk
But they really need to beef up those graphics, 'cause release date is coming up fast.
i cant wait for this game!!! i really think that the graphics can be better than this... but remember graphics arent everything- as long its got the gameplay then i'm fine!!!
I am more Hyped about this game or any socom game than i am for anything else for PS3! SOCOM is' just that amazing! But there is about 10 or 15 games I want for the PS3 this year besides this! Don't know what to do... I don't understand why some people here are saying that the gfx don't look good, I believe it looks fantastic already and believe it will look even better come september. If not, to me this is, perfectly acceptable.
I'm a big SOCOM fan, but I get tired of people saying that it was never about the graphics. SOCOM on the ps2 had good graphics, but if they are going to come out with SOCOM on a next generation platform, then they should enhance the experience including graphics. They've had alot of time to make this game and the fact that it has no single player content should have allowed them the time they needed to make a fantastic looking game. This game will be ok, I just hope that the SOCOM that Zipper is working on will blow people away.
This looks absolutely horrible. I remember when they first showed the game last year, how bad it looked... Looks like they didn't improve much of anything besides the aped GRAW camera. SOCOM on PS2 was a good game for its time, but this better have evolved to at least a GRAW 1 level.
SOCOM: Confrontation is just a game that will bridge the gap between Socom for PS2 and the next installment for PS3. It is more like SOCOM:PROLOGUE. The PS2 servers are going down so they need something to keep the Socom fans at bay. The final version for PS3 will be completely different, with better graphics, enhanced gameplay, the whole package. That being said I would play this game any day over GRAW. I would play Conflict:Denied Ops over GRAW!!! GRAW is an awful game. I played the first one for xbox 360 and couldn't believe how mediocre it was considering the hype for the game. Does it even have online? I cant wait to join my Italian comrades in battle!
