Exclusive trailer for Socom Confrontation from Gametrailers TV. Enjoy!
...is going to be a MUST buy game for all PS3 owners. Agree?
Not really. Shooter competition is very fierce. It comes out in OCT just a month before resistance. I will do all i can to enter the beta and if i like i will buy
I wouldn't go as far as saying it's a must have for all PS3 owners. I believe this is more aimed on the hardcore tactical shooter crowd. I love every Socom games that previously came out and it's online gameplay is something you really have to work at to get good.
No, it's not. The full fledge SOCOM 4 is what people really want. This is more like something to hold off the rabid SOCOM fans. Look at the graphics, it looks like friggin conflict denied ops for crying out loud.
@Rucky: Uh, what multipleyer shooters aren't for the hardcore player? Some multiplayer shooters are just made better than others is all. The fact that this game is designed specifically for multiplayer and not as an afterthought to a single player game makes this a hot game to watch out for come October!
This game looks excelent and the graphics are actually really nice. You can see gameplay footage on QORE in Hi-Def, looks as good or better then most shooters out today, and the gameplay is unmatched in SOCOM.
Gimmy my Socrack already damit.... Remember that d!ck that would mine dead body's way back in Socom 2 that made everyone scarred to walk on dead friends or foes? <--- sorry just its what i do...
im a sony fan and this game looks like it can run on my ps2 im very disappointed this game should be free.
I must own this game in order for my life to maintain meaning.
I agree, so hear's an agree and a bubble :).
I never played Socom for the PS2 (fat PS2 and I didn't want to buy the addon) but from the videos it looks pretty fun. I'm going to buy a hard copy for the headset. I just hope they have noob only servers because I've read that the hardcore are really hardcore. ><
The you are in for a great surprise. You are going to find out why we call it SOCRACK. Because the addiction level is through the roof.
But since this is a download title, i think the value is very good. This and warhawk should complement each other well in the online space
That's why they pushed the game back. I have seen in-game footage and it looks much better then this trailer. There is motion blur and other small details that make the experince better. I think the footage here is mostly from spectator perspective. Either way, this is NOT a full fledged sequal to SOCOM, just something to tie over fans and interest new comers. Sony is dumping financing and resources to system movers like Resistance 2, Killzone 2, and Motostorm; because Sony knows that SOCOM could look like Quake and people would still buy it so long as it is fun and doing so while being Navy Seals... I mean who doesnt? Nobody that matters, thats who.
been waiting on this game for a year
This is going to be the best game ever till socom 4 comes out or suck. I hope it is epic I love socom 1 and 2 I hate 3. Please if some one out there is listing to me make this game good i don't think I can stomach any more FPS. Not that there not good I just need some third person killing in my life!!!
Graphics looked like crap, I hope they put some work into it, I Really have high hope for this game..
I don't find your comments relevant. Not at all. I just looked over your post history and everyone of your remarks I found so far demeans or attacks the PS3. I think you are one of those sad persons that pretends to have a PS3 due to the erred belief that this will give your anti-PS3 comments weight. It doesn't. Not does your having a PS3 seem likely. People such as yourself love to enter pro PS3 threads and sow your doubt. Just another antiPS3 person for my ignore button. Goodbye.
morganfell the graphics do look like crap, and the character animation is horrible. Btw, my PSNID is Asurastrike.
I would have to agree with him Morganfell. While I have never played this series before.. I have high hopes for it. The same was with MGS4... never played prior episodes of the game and I ended up loving it. But back on track... The graphics at present showings are not up to par with current games (this is just my own opinion). They appear to be better than Warhawk; but not by much. I hope they improve on some of the particle effects, etc. Granted it is a "Downloadable Game", but it is also large enough that they are releasing it on a disc. That might help with first impressions. But no matter what... I plan on picking up this title.
"They appear to be better than Warhawk" I disagree. Warhawk looks miles better than this. Warhawk is at least 1280x720 with 4xAA. And doesn't have the vaseline looking textures.
I'm not getting into the graphics debate, but Seth Luisi confirmed in other previews the game is 720p native and upscaled to 1080p. True, it isn't going to win any awards in the visual department, but when HAS Socom had state of the art graphics, maybe the 1st one? Truthfully, as much of a socomhead as I am, I'm more exited that Sony finally developed a great bluetooth headset(from all accounts). Socom has ALWAYS been the vehicle to facilitate a mass market approach to their audio peripherals. Every online shooter after Oct. 14th will be enhanced by Socom's release.
Unas, You are missing the point of my post. Where in there did I say he was wroong because the graphics and animations were superior? See? It isn't his opinion per se but rather the purpose of his opinion, the real reason he posted. I think it is fairly obvious.
If you have played the past socom games, you would of known that socom wasn't meant for the graphics. It was all about the gameplay BABY YAYUH!!!!!!!! BOOM HEADSHOT, I can't wait until this game comes out. PSNID:kylo12
Looks like Metal Gear Online...if it was ported to PS2 and ran at 15fps. Disagree all you want, but I'm not a fanboy.
LOL MGO Blows. This game will be a lot better than that.
cant wait for tyhis game SOn!!! im fin twisted yo. fights explosives girls partys drinking! have a happy forth of [email protected]!!!!
socom is my favoret game on ps2 and i don't have it now but i will play it soon . very soon .
I never really got the chance to play SOCOM, but the single player campaign. I'm really looking forward to this, so I can finally see what everyone is talking about when they mention the online portion.
how can you be a sony fan and not get this game
game looks awesome, cant wait for it!
You'll find my commets pretty negative about the game. But man, seriously. Be honest, the graphics could be way better than this. With the PS3/360, it's supposed to be the end of shooting weird looking character models.
The models look fine, they just don't look like Snake in MGS4. When you're rendering 32 players on a console you must be prepared to lose a little texture quality. Too bad you can't plug a midrange PC vid card like the ATI 4850 into your PS3, because that would improve image quality and resolution by leap and bounds.
how do u rate metal gear online up against socom online? been playin mgo and its the best multiplayer game ive played yet!
fun but it isnt socom. Socom is on a different level than any other tps or fps. COD 4 is fun and i guess halo 3 can be fun sometimes but Socom is just better. The community is way stronger and bigger in socom than in any other game. You get to customize your gun (like cod 4), but better. It takes tactics and mics and skill to be good in this game.
if its better than mgo then ill get it for shiz. halo and cod4. although good games, just dont really do it for me. im liking the slower pace and the team tactics mgo right now.
The main difference Socom has over all others, is the bulk of gameplay removes RESPAWNING. It's you and your gun and your teammates versus the other side. You don't regenerate health. When you die you're dead until the next round. Thus, your kill to death ratio really illustrates your skill in Socom. Usually the maps are played best of 11, 5 minutes per round. Some people are turned off by this, but I love the inherent added tactical skill required to have a 6 kill round. When you snatch victory away from the other side when all seems lost - no other shooter gives you that sense of achievement.
your exactly right.... it makes me laugh that someone backs me up on that. In any other game that i play everyone cares about XP or how many wins they have thinking that the more xp and more wins they have means that there better but it is not. K per D ratio defines how good you are. In Socom if you K per D is 1.5 and up your good. And trust me im pretty good in socom and i have a 1.7 and it isnt easy. Clan wars are intense in socom especially since it isn't respawn and your whole team is gone except for you and its like 10 on 1 and you take them all out, your heart is pumping like crazy, your sweating, its intense and awesome. I haven't found this in any other game.
is this aps2 game ?
its good ..... for a ps2 game
a PS2 game that you say this game is will kick the ass of any other 360 or PS3 game.
ive played SOCOM online back in the PS2 days,BLACK,and CONFICT and on this gen ive played WAR HAWK,RFOM,UT3,COD4 and GTA4 online and i have to say that the most action packed in your face shooter is BAD COMPANY.online this game is MADNESS.the destruction and vehicles are the best ive EVER seen in a game.the maps are perfect,some wide open and some closed up.it makes COD4 feel like it wasnt finished being made.ONLINE INSANITY!!!!!
looks good, if only it didnt get delayed till october :(
That wasn't the most exciting trailer of all time.
