Today, four new screenshots of SOCOM: Confrontation, which is set to be released in september on PlayStation 3, appeared. The shots show two interior settings and an alleyway with some soldiers in it.
I must admit, I was first quite harsh on Socom's visuals (and paid for that with the torrent of hate thrown at me lol), but each time a new batch of screens is released they seem to be getting better and better. This is most defiantly a Gameplay over Graphics title anyhoo, but in this day and age its the visuals that get the scrutiny first.
When you consider it's a download only title, I think the graphics stand up pretty well. I mean, there's some exceptions to the download rule (Wipeout HD, Rez, Ikaruga...), but SOCOM definitely goes above and beyond the standard for a download.
Maybe ill just drop Warhawk and COD4 after getting SOCOM... Just maybe, need a try (i <3 warhawk)
Whoa some of those screens look crazy ugly. I hope it looks better in motion or they improve. http://www.xgn.nl/ps3/scree... The environments look solid but they really need to polish up the characters. This will be my first socom game and i am really looking forward to playing this. Gameplay looks very solid
First Socom game? Well it wont be easy if this game is anything like Socom 1/2 (which it should be) There is a very large learning curve, and that is the way it needs to me. I dont want a game that caters to noobs/scrubs. Socom has always been about skill. Ya that pic aint too hot, but this game will be the best thing out this generation when it launches.
your right that the visuals are getting better and while i agree this is a gameplay title not a visual title, IMO it still has a lot to do.
I think these screenshots look great but they're pulling the same crap that COD4 did with the optics. They have the TRIJICON ACOG on a few of the rifles which is great, the US army uses those. But the reflex sights they're using on some of the weapons are cheap BSA or TASCO Wal-Mart brand optics. I realize a lot of people don't care about that, but it bugs the hell of me. There are way better and cooler looking reflex sights out there. They could use EOTECH, ECLAN, AIMPOINT something!!! I shouldn't complain though, it could be just a pre-alpha thing and they're just using place holders for now, who knows. Other than that I am extremely pleased with the look of this game thus far.
No really...HAHA. That was a pretty pointless little rant. Are they using Nike combat boots?
Immersion is in the details my friend.
Go to the Socom boards on PSU and you will see these kind of posts all day long They do get annoying. I dont notice it and as long as the gun sounds and looks real then I am happy.
should be like cod4 or KZ2
u must have never played socom. that how the crosshair is. Its not a FPS Socom will shine once released.
you know he's never played socom...
So when are they gonna apply AA? That's the only thing it needs visually to me, but if it doesn't have it and the gameplay is good then it's A-OK.
um wow ps3 exclusive i'll pass though
Anti-aliasing, and some Ambient Occlusion and the graphics should be fine. Not great, but not bad. But the gameplay actually does look pretty impressive.
I PAID FOR IT IN FULL
almost all good games are on PS3 this year
...then I'm SOOO f'n interested! :P
the creators of socom has always put together great graphic sceneries which are very well detailed. The only issue they seem to have is their lack of listening to the socom community to put in and fix things that are high in demand to make the game better. Hopefully putting this version of socom on the ps3 would enable them to do better with patches and game expansions. and to atleast bring back the socom 2 feel that everybody loved. it looks like this one will have a lot of close combat in tight areas. I hope they dont make them too cramped of an area. Many socom fans should know what im talking about when you put everyone in a small area
I hope the lobby is the same as S2.
looks good but Battlefield Bad Company is coming out about the same time.....hmm whos going to get me cash.
Socom > 10000000 Battlefield Bad Company. I know its not out yet but I can already tell that B:BC is going to be an Extream Arcade Shooter. Socom is the most tactical and team based shooter out there.
How can you disagree on a question?
Easy by clicking the disagree button.
This is getting to the point where i wont have enough time to play all these great games on the ps3 There are way too many coming out this year its a good thing
It's the PS1 and PS2 all over again for me this gen too it seems. Weird cuase it seems I'm gaming way more now than I ever did but it seems I'm already begining to fall behind on the games I really want to play. ... by the way, whatever happened to "teh PS3 HAS NO GAMES!!"? Four months ago it was all the rage and now..
All that has to be done is to make an exact replica of Socom 2 for this game to be the best...... Socom 2 PERFECTED every single aspect of online gaming! BEst online game EVER MADE PERIOD. Especially the lobbies and the CHAT SYSTEM!!!! Open chat has to be the stupidest idea, (like in GTAIV, Warhawk etc)...they better make it like Socom 2.....if not....ill kill them
Agreed, they went wrong with Socom 3 and i hope they see sense and make it like the good old days!
