Sony Computer Entertainment America have this weekend publicly apologised for the issues gamers have experienced attempting to participate in the SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation public beta.
so all these problems happen cuz u guys didnt have good enough servers to handle a beta well take note insomniac and guerrilla
insomniac and guerrilla will most likely will be fine.. i just took a break form the socom beta, love it.... LOVE IT .. minus the server load issues of course... the problem, i hate to admit is sony.... Sony IMO undervalued socom.. and its fans... so much money has been dumped into Killzone 2.. and resistsance 2 (resistance 2 gets a pass since it was a new ip launch title that worked, really good game) (and not knocking killzone 2 but its a risk) there has been this HALO killer search for a while now.. killzone was to be the first halo killer, didnt work (halo 1 better gameplay, killzone more immersive tone) SONY's few online hits of the ps2 includes: Everquest Online Adventures, Final Fantasy XI, AND Socom...... ___ my point is that still to this day people are playing SOCOM 1, 2, 3, CA and the psp online remind you of someone? pre halo 3 people were still playing halo.. __________ Slant6 is a great company and zipper passed the baton to a great developer BUT... Zipper is to sony as bungie is to microsoft _______ SONY is most likely putting plenty of money and support into resistance 2 and killzone servers.. and rightfully so, both titles look good but socom should have received sony's first attention, it should have been a launch title sony and zipper should have worked on that first (and maybe slant6 if zipper wants to move on like Bungie does) to get socom out _____________ insomniac and guerrilla are getting the funding it needs... sadly .. SOCOM did not.. socom actually as a SONY title, deserves Metal Gear Solid 4 type of attention _____________________________ with all that said, socom:confrontation is turning out well.. i love it .. when the servers work LOL... WAKE UP SONY... SOCOM is and should be a staple that demands your attention and financial backing...
The REAL SOCOM is coming in the form of MAG. Confrontation is just the appetizer.
yeah man its a beta there is bound to be some problems bugs n wutnot in it but the gameplay is sic and ud be amazed at howmany ppl have headsets. Nice teamwork action n communication game liking it too
I am not really tps gamer and i never played any socom series except psp version which really don't count. I really want to give try to this socom. If somebody can give me their beta key for a day to see how I like it, i would really appreciate it. Happy Gaming.
it was a lot better last night, I heard they done a tweek to the servers and there was a lot less lagg, and the loading had improved.
Well correct me if i am wrong, but the game is only online multiplayer. IMO this is a sorry attempt considering this is the complete core of the game. Sure there should be some issues, but when it is barely playable most of the time it's not a good starting foundation. Considering it is online only. Well anyways they will get things lined out eventually, but i am still not impressed with the game. I will stick with COD4 and B-company for my military need's.
does this game not come out until like 2009?
*sighs* They'll never learn...
If this was the actual game id\'d understand the complaints but its a beta TEST. Bugs, problems and glitches will obviously be there.
I like how people are reporting this, but when the Halo 3 Beta was crap it was front page news.
in defense of the article, this is not an attack on socom or sony this is the message you read when you logon to socom: confrontation patches come in the mornings and a big update expected around the time the qore subscribers get online with socom next week... aside from some minor issues (i really think the beta is cutting it close, it should have been at the latest august, but in reality around spring) i see people reporting the article but i dont see anything negative as its just a copy of the slant6 notice that you see when you log on all and all, its turning out to be a great game... i just hope they eventually bring back campaign mode in the future and either mirculously bring back boomer or a boomer like character like boomer see what i mean with sony neglecting socom? socom is sony's master chief
This Beta is almost unplayable since it takes minutes to join a game. I think I will wait for it to be fixed before I get back into playing it
sorry 2 say this socom is disappointing this is not a real 3rd person game the camera is to close the old socom 1 2 and 3 you can see the player legs and boots this socom you only can see from was hips and up its much slower from before
Change the camera then.
Seriously. Am I the only one who, the first thing they do with a new game is check what all buttons do and explore every menu?
i put it on classic thats what im talking about the camera is just 2 close 3years for this and it looks like a psp game Slant Six needs to stick doing psp games
And I have nor anyone I play with know what your talking about I see my legs ect. make sure your not zoomed in by pressig the D-pad up that could be a problem. Console gamers only have alot to learn about Beta's if it ran perfect the point of it would be moot. But anyways I love it about the 300people I played with loved it. I f a long load screen is deterring you then maybe electronics and technology just aren't your thing you know since BETA = PRoblem finsder and people eseem to think BETA=perfect demo.
Off topic but who the f**k said Socom had bad graphics? Graphics look AWESOME!! No aliasing problems and really nice textures. Lag is my only concern now. Hopefully within the coming days, we're going to see fix by SlantSix.
Sorry but i have to disagree with you. I'm in the beta and the graphics look like Ps2 quality graphics. Guns look better than Ps2 graphics but that's about it (graphics wise). Now the gameplay is a totally different story. The gameplay is straight up awesome. I was totally going to pass up on buying this but now i'm probably going to buy the game. The gameplay is raw and it's really accessible and cool and has the perfect feel to it. Graphics suck but the gameplay is awesome. I don't play games for their pretty colors and realistic graphics or whatever. I play them for gameplay and story.
The Graphics are good, but they're no where near as good as you say there. When I've been playing I've experienced a lame framerate ( probably lag induced at times )good textures and level design, which is flawed with some slight screen earing occasionaly and some of what would be great lighting, but it needs tweaking.. when I'm in the shade and walk out it'n not til my character has walked out from the shade that he then has the light stream onto him again. The only things I really care about though is the framerate and connection problems causing deaths. Overall I'm thoroughly enjoying the game ( when I'm in it )
I think the graphics are pretty good myself. Not amazing, but good. You really think this looks like a PS2 game? Go look at PS2 games again and tell me if you really think the same. I never saw a PS2 game this good looking. I don't need it to be perfect, if it's fun.
ok and im in the beta also and the graphics are really good, textures, lighting, character models etc. http://www.youtube.com/watc... <-----ps2 socom/graphics. http://www.youtube.com/watc... <-------ps3 socom/graphics. sorry but i think your full of it....... lets be honest..... this game has really good graphics. *goes back to playing SOCOM: Confrontations*
HAHA Are you guys seriously saying Confrontation looks like PS2 graphics? What are you smoking dude? I'm playing on an 08 model 50" Pioneer Elite and the game is beautiful. You guys must be playing on SDTV's or on really small ass screens. Or it could be that your taking every chance you have to dog on a game just because it's on the PS3. LOL.
Yes i'm serious that it look like Ps2 quality graphics to me. The graphics quality reminds me Black but maybe a little sharper. The graphics are very unimpressive to me besides how the guns look. The guns look really damn good but the models and how the environment looks (graphical quality wise) is very tame and looks pretty bad in my opinion. Like i said it's all about the gameplay. The gameplay is top notch and it's the reason i'm probably going to now buy Socom: Confrontation. I love the level design as well and the controls feel just right. Besides the server loading and the framerate drop there's nothing bad about Socom for me. Like i said the gameplay is what matters to me. I still play Ps2 and the occasional Genesis game from time to time. edit: I'm playing on a 50 inch Samsung, it's a 2007 model and i'm running the game in 720p.
I think it really is one of those things where when you are actually playing it is when you will only then notice how good the graphics are. I mean it's not Geras of War or uncharted ( obviously ) but then again the size this is pushing with the amount of people online too in full really allows me to appreciate the graphics even more.
Nope i'm not saying it because i'm trying to "diss a game that's on Ps3 lawl" because i only have a Ps3 as far as next gen consoles go. That's a moot point. Point is i think the graphics are sub par, Warhawk has better graphics than Socom: Confrontation in my opinion, i think God of War 2 looks better than Socom: Confrontation as well. I just think the graphics look bad. Gameplay is damned good though. At first i thought Socom: Confrontation looked bad in my opinion gameplay wise and that it had average graphics. My friend Patron gave me one of his beta codes so i could get in the beta it's already about changed my mind and i think i'm going to buy the game. Now i think the gameplay is awesome but the graphics look sub par. I don't play "console favorite" or whatever you want to call it. If a game looks good to me it looks good to me and if it looks like it's going to suck then i don't care which system it's on i think it's going to suck.
sorry dark but your a joke. first of all, its not the matter of opinion ok so you sound dumb. second of all, you have to be just another hater to say it looks like a ps2 game get real man. its a FACT that confrontations has good graphics and if "in your opinion" it looks bad then you need to put on your bifocals dude cause your opinion doesn't work here.
Oh I know the gameplay is top notch. That's not the point. The graphics being bad needs to laid to rest though. Socom 3: http://www.playstationpro2.... Socom Confrontation: (Same map) http://img.photobucket.com/... Heres some vid comparison from SlantSix. Same gun same map. http://socom.us.playstation... http://socom.us.playstation... leaps and bound better. You must be retarded to say they look like PS2 graphics. Sorry guys nice try. If you need more comparisons, let me know. I'll try to record gameplay. But keep in mind if I do, it's going to be recorded in SD resolution. Can't record in HD.
So i state my personal opinion and i'm called a joke? What you must think i'm a "360 fanboy in disguise" or something because i don't slurp every Ps3 exclusive game. As many times as i've agreed with you PostedUp and given you bubbles for your comments i've got to say this is quite ironic. I always thought you were level headed but got a bad rep for being a Ps3 owner. Maybe i was wrong. I can't even assert my opinion on how a video game looks and try to have a friendly discussion without being insulted. Heh. edit: Meh, i'll just agree to disagree and go back to play the beta. Maybe it might be my critical eye. Because no game have wowed me graphically yet except Killzone 2 and Gran Turismo 5: Prolog. I'm just not impressed by graphics easily because i don't really care about how good a games graphics is.
yes i am level headed and thanks for the complement and noticing : ) but one thing i have is commonsense and you cant bring your opinion into a debate period, ESPECIALLY when your really trying to prove your point which you are trying to do right now so thats what i am saying, your opinion doesn't work here, and as something as RIDICULOUS as "it looks like ps2 graphics" man get that junk outta here, you sound immature with that statement for real. in other words... (like most people on here would say) YOU FAIL XD. @ dark below- i couldnt read your whole comment cause you are uneducated sorry no offense, but you said opinions are naturally the back bone of a debate.... no... FACTS are the ONLY thing that should be in a debate, and thats where you said it looks like a ps2 game and thats where i showed you FACTS by providing links and proved you completely wrong. sorry man, game on. you can NEVER debate with your opinion, and thats todays lesson from someone as knowledgeable as postedup : ) peace and god bless. EDIT @ dark- you cant prove a fact wrong with your opinion, and thats what you are doing and thats what i am trying to say. you gave no facts and you are trying to prove that what you said is true. <--- fact. you said what you said and i wouldn't jump the gun like that if you said something knowledgeable (which you didnt) and you claim that your not uneducated (in this area) but you still said it looks like a ps2 game and you "tried" to prove it right with your opinions. period. i proved you wrong with facts and you claim that you only wanted a "discussion" now but if that were true you wouldn't of tried to back up your statements so much ya know, and their for you were trying to debate (with your opinion) and thats where i said YOU FAILED XD, peace homie, good chatting with you ; ) now back to socom.....
Man, it's all in good fun. The important part is that we all agree that it's a really fun game. Don't take it to heart.. We can't agree on everything.
can you please give your PSN ID? many people are saying "I'm in the beta" but they are not, the look of the game is nothing what you describe.
Yeah that is true. But it's natural to use your opinion as a backbone of your debate. That's what debates are usually based around, difference in opinions. Maybe saying it has Ps2 quality graphics was a little harsh but i still think graphically it's unimpressing to me. Maybe saying it had Halo 3-esq graphics would have been better *Laughs*. Jokes aside like i said i'm just usually unimpressed by graphics some people tote as being the "creme del-la creme" at the time. Only 2 games that made me go "Got damn, those graphics are insane" was Killzone 2 (which will also have 32 player online) and GT5:P. edit: Sure no problemo my PSN ID is Dark-General. If anyone wants to send me a friend invite to see if i'm bullsh*tting or not go ahead and i'll prove it. I'll also show off my game collection and Platinum Uncharted trophy while i'm at it. edit2: I didn't mean you prove things by using your own opinion (come on that's a given). What i was talking about was that the whole center of debates is differing in opinions. Since you're trying to defend what you believe in (opinion) by backing it up with facts like links, documents, studies etc. That's what i meant by the "Backbone of debates". If you didn't feel so strongly about what you're debating in by proving what you say is right then it's a pretty passive and moot. You're a little too triggy happy to call me "Uneducated". I wasn't aiming for a debate inherently but merely some discussion. Like i said above. FACT.
Honestly i can barely make out what you just typed. On second reading i can kind of understand where you're coming from. I didn't care about making this a debate because like i said numerous times already i don't care about graphics. BUT if you insist on me backing up what i said take a look at some of these Black Screenshots for yourself: http://videogames.yahoo.com... and Socom screenshots: http://ve3d.ign.com/article... Like i said. I don't really care about graphics but they both look almost on par with each other. As for retorting who wouldn't defend themselves after being called a joke, a hater etc etc. I didn't put much effort into because like i didn't exactly care how the graphics look. But when i'm getting insulted then i'll start putting more effort into it. I already know people will have different opinions which is why i shrugged it off for the most part. But to continually be called a joke, uneducated and a hater. Well now i'll try.
Well I can respect your opinion. All that matters is that this game looks awesome in my eyes. Another thing to mention is the far draw distance. Something the older Socom games lacked. lol
Your kidding yourself if you think the graphics are good. The graphics is an insult to the rest of the next gen games.
i think they're not bad,but not good either. it looks like CS:S. better then ps2 but still dated imho.
I don't agree with you but i don't agree at the above. I think maybe you need to go back and play socom 1,2,3, ca. they are much worse in every way now there nothing super awesome but this game was made for gameplay not graphics and you see all these flops are more and more and will continue since with todays generation "Give me all of it all at once" moneys is being wasted to make game look good with terrible gameplay. But I like it and I agree graphics are nothing special but far from ps2 and i mean far away. Just like HDTV's and Surround Sound you forget how big the difference is. For ex. just yesterday I was wathcing Football in HD and ran to my room to work out put it on my no HD tv and the difference was HUGE I mean HUGE but standing in front of the HD you cant really (Or I cant )tell the difference saying stuff like this is how I remebered it looking but its not and not even close just like watching yourself grow in the mirror you cant tell to much but a before and after picture would get a wow I had no idea out of you.
Skadoosh you're a straight up idiot. Graphics an insult to next gen games? HAHA don't make up stuff because clearly you haven't played the game. Play this game then play Halo 3. You will see Halo 3 is last-gen graphics compared to Socom.
looks like the socom clusterfuuck, MGO all over again
it's nowhere near that bad.
this socom is epic (coming from a socom veteran) if yall love socom then you guys will be very very happy with this game, i cant stop playing it and the servers are much improved from a couple of days ago lets just hop it gets better. @ the worst- your not a socom fan if you care about seeing your legs : /, your not a socom fan if you think this looks like a psp game, be honest dude your just a hater.....
God forbids this happens on xbox live because the droids would be on it like flies on sh!t LOL.
ur an idiot
you weren't in the Halo3 beta ain't you? it happened the same thing.
@Gambare I remember getting into the beta and I was pissed on how much the game lagged.I thought the final build was just like it.But when H3 came out,the multiplayer was actually really smooth.You can't let a beta fool you on what the final build is.
yup, the beta behavior is not reflecting the final build gameplay, offline or online.
All voices of reason, and level-headed commenting. Bubbles for you guys. @ #1 Minus a bubble for you
@Thereapersson Bubble for you too.Thanks man
And you're the only dumbf*ck that's here. That's how popular Socom is dumbass. Hell, it'll probably move people to the darkside.
this game is no where near R2 or LBP Btw , I looked at some videos the gameplay sucks and the graphics sucks too I have a PS3 but , sorry I'm not wasting my time or my money with this game Another day , Another flop lol
YOU DON'T OWN A PS3.
@ Juuken http://img237.imageshack.us...
that shut that b!tch up, pretty damn fast... LOL
@above showing your dads PS3 games dont count. "God forbids this happens on xbox live because the droids would be on it like flies on sh!t LOL." -take it u where under a Rock for XMASS XBL the HOLE service....Lag/crash fest of 07/08?...... But on Topic, yes Socom is the best NON respwan killfest ever so it a no brainer its stumbling under the pressure...its Socom.... ... ... ..not galo piggy backing on M$/word/Office built and tested years ago with M$ Royalties ... so w/e its a BETA.....big woopy Sh!t.u kids just F&^(*n amaze me. and wow picking on a Girl Hilarious.....have fun when u try to talk to one in real life and get Kicked in the Nuts....since your well retards and u keep proving that u are. cuz i say Revenge is funny and for you xbots its called HighSchool remember that u dorks.
Yeah the server loading issues made me decide to just not play it anymore until thats fixed. I love the socom series but if they can't get that right am a pass.
yeah seriously,it takes me like 3-4 minutes to get in a game and play. I know it's a beta but come on.
Omg a beta that has bugs? Unheard of! No, but seriously it will be fixed before I get in next Friday from Qore so it's all good lol
Playing on the new 52" LG scarlet, looks sweet to me, am i missing something?
I LOVE this game so much i don't know way its just so dam good. so many people sux at this game and its so so fun to own them all lololol hope they fix the load time soon..
Well kinda hard to be good when you lag all the time.
Ouch! not suprised though.
why da hek is our game loading off the servers ? 5 minute loading screen come on slant 6. the graphics are great the game play is huge!! but your servers sucks!! geez incognito need to step in and show this guys a lesson!! look [email protected] warhawk no problem whats so ever!! i don't know zipper probably laughing @ us right know.lol
Dark General Have you ever played BF2 on pc. Those graphics are very similar to socom. They aint brilliant, but they get the job done, and in some places look really nice. I'd still say the lighting system in socom is better then bf2. But i like the graphics either way.
go play your f-a-i-l-0 3 dude get outta here, socom killz any games on xbox360 including your precious geow3.
I wish I was Playing in the Beta... Day 4 Still know Email with My Code
another case of developer just not getting it done... they put out the Vouchers AND let each voucher holder invite 2 others. DUGH. I am a Socy fan and have ~ 15 hours in so far with the beta....its MP only..they didnt have to do much but taking a stellar franchise and move it to the PS3...so little to no creativity needed in developing new gameplay mechanics..no SP game or CoOp to worry about.. and they screwed the pooch with just this MP only game it will be fixed and it will be a stellar game... how they can mess up a MP only game which they main goal is online is way beyond me they didnt even have a rollout launch over a 2 week time frame to balance... cant make this stuff up
