SOCOM Confrontation public beta will be delayed until Friday September 5th.
No big deal. Should pre order by thursday so i can get the 3 beta codes. Its awesome for me cus thursday was the earliest time i could pre order
Screams are heard aloud for all those that took off September 1st to play the beta.... including me.
cause Monday is a holiday...and kids are out of school. Interestingly enough....I have never even thought about taking off from work or school, when I was in it, to stay home and play a game...let alone a beta.
damn come on!!! i was looking foward to this beta!!!! now it starts after school starts :-( i was excited for 2 full days of playtime for SOCOM before school
yea man i agree i was really looking forward to this man im kinda disappointed man im like a really BIG fan of socom.
sH1T, I still need a code ;(
GRRRRRRRR... I need my SoCrack
pssh, tell me about it...
Dunno man, you got plenty of crack in that Avatar lol
LOL, I could imagine an Alien Documentary: "A very anticipated game called SOCOM was holding a beta. The beta was delayed for 4 days, and then the world exploded."
but it is too much to ask for something to happen on time
its not sony, but slant 6.....buts its only 5 days, so we cant really complain
WTF talk about last minute delay. This is one of the only games that my gaming career is holding on to and the freaking beta can't even come out on time. These delays are BS.
yo im all with you on that dog, i totally agree. im a really big fan too...
Ok thats it, im pissed. you can disagree with me all you want but this pisses me off, so last minute.. the fact i took off for this!! OMG i hate sony right now, I know its only 4 days but for god sakes its always been one step forward 2 steps backward with sony and the delays.. Im sick of this crap, watch a "slight" delay with home, littlebigplanet and while we are at it with R2. Yes i love the PS3 as you can tell by my name but i also own a 360 and i have to say that with all of the 360 faults atleast they hardly EVER delay anything. like someone on here said in another post "if sony was in charge of death, we would live forever" so true
look i can respect that you want to play the game. but lets not act like it's sonys fault. you people crack me up. yeah sony called these guys and said " hey lets delay it a week " and i can name about 4 or 5 x box related things that are being delayed right now as well. it happens. people are spoiled. they complain if it gets delayed to make it right. they complain if it's not delayed and broken. when games are delayed it's not sony or microsofts fault. it's the game makers fault. and they only delay it to make it right. stop crying.
lol.. Sony is not developing SOCOM, R2 or LBP. They are just the platform that the games are bing released on. Yea, we know Sony delays things, but this is not their fault. I agree with themyk, I'd rather wait and have something awesome than have them release something broken. Sucks for people that took the day off, but you'd be more upset if the game you all love so much left a bad taste in your mouth because it wasn't working properly. (Not just this game, but all games you might enjoy)
they want to relax this weekend. so what. it is labor day weekend. let those guys take a break and enjoy themself's i don't mind. plus i still haven't got my damn e mail with my codes anyways. i am waiting and checking everyday.
they have been relaxing for more than 2 years now. I have this game pre ordered since august of last year 07.
socom looks more like over the shoulder view not like third person view @plain rice i hope so because i didnt like GRAW and it looks like the same view
theirs over the shoulder and classic and if im not mistaken theirs the semi first person view..... i hope.... edit @ below- their will be no semi first person view like in all the other socoms? i hope theirs is....
There are two viewing modes. Classic third person view and OTS. But, OTS is the default option. @PoSTedUP That part, I'm actually not too sure about. I hope so though. There could be semi-FPS since there is no iron-sight view.
They removed FPS completely. It is over the sholder and classic third person.
WTF Slant Six!?!?!?!?!?!?! I'm pissed.
I was seriously looking forward to this beta and 2 days before beta release they f**king delay it. At least let us know weeks in advance. I took Tuesday off from work for a reason. *EDIT* DAMN!!! Looks like I'm not the only one who took off from work just to play the beta.
F**k you Seth Luisi and Slant Six.
nothing new coming from a PS3 Product
Nothing new from someone with an ignorant mind. All companies have delays, Microsoft included. It depends of whether those delays are beneficial for the gamer or not.
doesnt surprise me a xbot said that
I mean, Im all excited from MAG, but I would rather play a true next gen socom then MAG. Also, I think its pretty pathetic the full version is only getting 7 maps. Especially since almost half of them are old maps from the ps2 versions just with next gen graphics. Its a really frustrating time to be a gamer.
mag is the true next gen socom. you don't actually think the name of that game is "mag" do you? i can almost guarantee that's a code name, or something. i'll say it now. when that game is released it well be called socom (something) like socom zero. or socom blablablablabla. what ever. but mag. massive action game. no. massive action game is what it is. and it well be called socom. and for you to say it's a sad time to be a gamer. i think your crazy. i couldn't disagree more. do you even get socom? maybe you shouldn't bother playing it anyways. this game is for the fans of socom. this is an appetizer for "mag" nevermind
I really wish Zipper Int would just remake Socom 2 in HD with the PS3 specs in mind. I am willing to bet Socom 2 HD for PS3 will sell more copies than Socom Confrontation.
"mag is the true next gen socom." You could be onto something here. I remember awhile back, they said Zipper Interactive is working on Socom 4. Maybe MAG IS the game?
This is a bit frustrating. I have been waiting to play the game for over a year now. Then they announce that you can get the Socom beta from Qore, so I get Qore. Then they announce that pre-orders get the beta early so I get a pre-order. Now they are delaying the beta. I can wait 4 more days, but it is still disappointing. The one positive thing to come out of this though is that the comments section, for that blog post, is a hilarious read.
MAG will be MAG, they're deciding the sub-title as we speak. The "Massive Action Game: Zero"
But I can handle a small delay
I'm gonna predict the future right now. PP, Zerodin, and the other infamous xbots will come here and say something like: "LOL!!!1 Another delay for you sony droids! hahahahhahahahahahahah lolz!!11!!1!1ONE!"
well, for a PSN game this is taking entirely too long to get going. This game should have been out by july. It would have been a no-brainer in July but now... They have pushed it back to october and its not going to bode well for sales.
not totally unexpected....no new news just before this Monday, was a little telling
whats another delay ? im used to delays
that whole week im on Vacation !!!!!damn it!! i knew it was too good to be true that ill be playing socom on my vacation ....
Bots are just douche bags. They dont know anything about anything. Oh NO! a 4 day delay!
Why would anyone take off for a beta? Really? Do you really expect the beta to run smoothly when it starts off? Or do you think its gonna get raped and hammered by everyone at the same time and cause lag and crashes? Don't blame sony or slant 6 because you took off, blame yourself because you called off work for a damn beta.
...Have you played SOCOM? If you're a SOCRACK addict like alot of us are, you would understand how deprived everyone is.
Socom is my sole reason to owning a PS3 or even playing games for that matter. Socrack is the keyword here. Most of us are just that desperate. You'd understand if you were one the many that actually played through Socom in its prime years.
Yes I have played Socom. I played Socom 2 everyday for like 2 years. Socom is awesome and I can't wait to get my headset bundle, but to call off of work for a beta has got to be one of the stupidest things I've ever heard of. The same thing happened for the AoC early access, people took off so they could play the game but then they ended up pushing it back from the morning to later that night or the day after leading to people whining about having called off and being betrayed by funcom and blah blah blah.
These delays are getting to be [email protected] bullshit. I could care less for Home or other things, but SOCOM. SOCOM is the game I grew up with(and still am growing up with). My first memory of SOCOM 1 is being on the ship just watching those two guards walk away, then stealthily sneak up behind them and knife em. I loved that ship. SOCOM 2 I remember the insane online matches. My favorite map was Chain Reaction. SOCOM 3, I remember the STG77 with the suppressor and pistol grip, having uber accuracy and kicking so much ass. SOCOM: Confrontation, my first memory shall be the delay to September, then October. :(
Maybe there was some major problem or Sony is going to release a firmware update on the 4th or 5th.... Its only 4 freaking days...
I can't beleive how many things have been delayed on Playstation 3. I was really looking forward to playing this on Monday. Maybe Sony shouldn't have made their console so difficult to develop for. By the time developers realize the full potential of the system, Nintendo and Microsoft will have rolled out their next systems.
How do I get into the public beta p.s I am Australian btw.
all you haters just show the mind set playing ps3... All I did was make a comment and you guys jump down my Throat.. I own a PS3 and 2 360.. the ps3 is a game blu-ray player.. the game have been So-So.. So when you have a game like Socom coming out, you would think son'y would be on the ball with this... I didn't say any bad about sony only that this is the year of the PS3 Delays not year of the PS3... yes Xbox 360 does have it's delays but not like this... you should not set a release date, then 3 months from that date push the games back.. Delay games that are not ready yes, but then the at haze.. it saw the delay bug too and look at it... horrible game... took me way back.. but hey it's just like madden it won't get to much better if know one say anything.. PS3 Fanboys need to grow Some Balls
Ahhh did juuken hurt your feelings?
i love ps3 gonna be on the beta everyone shut up its only 4 days damn stop being as bad as xbots queens
I still don't understand this whole ordeal for Socom. Yet, I am also disappointed that I won't get to try it out this monday. Cause god forbids, I have to work on that Friday. Oh well.
I guess I'm getting Mercs 2 tomorrow. I wasn't going to be because I anticipated being on this every free moment.
THIS WAS BS,ITS OPEN NOW, GO TO http://socomupdate.com/beta... YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPOINTED,AGAIN IT IS OPEN AND RUNNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!
