In addition to Tournaments, Clan Ladders and the Calendar, the team at Slant Six has been busy adding new community requested features to the 1.50 update. The following items have been confirmed for the 1.50 update with additional items to come.
Agreed. But it shows the developers are still dedicated to keeping their word by supporting their latest flop. Let's see if they can manage to make SOCOM shine again.
Is this game worth the money? Is it fun to play and are there many people playing it? And to be fair Luxa, it wasn't the same developers developing Confrontation as the other SOCOM's. Maybe that's the reason this game was worse.
I really don't understand all the hate for this game. I really enjoy it. Somedays I will play Socom and others I throw in Killzone 2...and on others I will throw in Resistance 2....all great games and fun to play.... I have CoD 4 and 5 and prefer the 3 games listed above over them as well...but still play the 2 call of duty games on occasion as well. The PS3 has the best shooters period. And in my opinion the absolute best first party titles bar none.
Yes the game launched missing tons of features Yes the game had pretty bad connection problems Yes there have been tons of updates But each update has made the game much better. After 1.5 is released there are three things missing that will make the game great: 1) More maps 2) PMN Mines 3) The Clan Tournament system And for those of you asking if it's worth the buy, it is. The bundle is a great value if you don't have a headset and NOW that the game has been updated it's definetly worth the $40 on PSN. But have fun downloading all the updates, might take you a full day :)
Hmmm... I think I might get it then. I liked the look of it when I saw all the vids and stuff before release, but then when everyone started saying how broken it was I thought 'hell no'. If its pretty much fixed now then I think I'll get it. I don't need a headset so I reckon £20 on psn is fair enough.
It's not really the hate. Fans of Socom including me was just simply disappointed with the new Socom because it failed to recreate the Socom TWO feel like Slant 6 promised. Not to mention they f**ked up trying to get everything up and running for months after the official retail release. Confrontation is a whole different Socom, but still a good in my opinion. Just really wished it stuck with its roots.
my internet is slow so i dont like having to update this game everytimg i play This is my favourite game of all time.
Tapewurm, the hate for the game is an attempt to prevent SOCOM form doing damage. When SOCOM II released there were more players on that game than every game on Xbox Live combined. The game is at the point where it is a great successor to SOCOM II except it doesn't have the historical lag. I game it quite a bit and it provides plenty of at old SOCOM greatness.
Pretty much man. SOCOM II is the only online game where i stayed up the better part of the night to play or play over 16hrs straight. Confrontation now is still a great game. And i play it quite often, 3 friends on my list only play it whenever they are on, Some of The SOCOM faithful.
I can tell you don't play the game already. They're aren't enough updates if anything. The last one (1.42) was put out to fix a spawning issues with the game, therefore it needed to be quick.
don't let the lies of 360 fanboys fool anyone, this is one THE most underrated games on the PS3. IMO it is THE online competitive shooter of this generation. Graphics are SHARP (exactly what is needed for tactical gameplay). I can score a headshot with a SUBMACHINE gun at over 500 yards. NO OTHER game offers that kind of accuracy and LAG FREE play.I've split my FPS time between this and Killzone 2.
Well the jury's out at the moment, one thing I can say for sure though is that the graphics suck! I know everyone keeps saying graphics don't make a game good but they certainly help, first impressions and all that. I'll give the game a bit more time, tell you one thing it could be doing with though,an offline training mode or something. Having never played any SOCOM game ever I had to jump into an online game to learn the ropes which kinda sucks. Like I say though, I'll give it more time, maybe I just haven't played with the right people yet as there was certainly no tactics or teamtalk involved in any of the games I was in!
should obv have been fixed from the start but socom's a game you can come back to now and again tbh, i mean ppl were playing the old socoms for ages after release. It is a good game once you get past all the bugs, i think even if it's not as good as the previous games in the series (well 1 + 2) socom fans should still enjoy it, it's not a game that will convert new ppl to the socom franchise though.
There are tonnes of new age gamers on SOCOM... many have now become SOCOM vets I guess XD
i still consider this to be a better shooter than any other out their for ps3 and 360! yes it has its bugs but not enough to say this game fails! This IS NOT A RUN AND GUN game YOU WILL hate this game if you play it like that...the way i see it the more update the better this game gets....i say get a friend who plays this and join him/her to see how real team work gets you alive through a round...heres a another hint learn how to use each type of weapon! hope to see you guys online! lets get fragging!!! PSN MIkel_USMC !
hey Slant Six KISS MY ASS!!!
Never played the other socoms. Picked this up on sale. Now I play it a little every day. Great buy.
You've missed out, the other SOCOMs were the SH!T in the day, when PS2 online was booming and there were no cheaters.. ah memories ;)
well it only came to the uk last month,picked it up for 29.99 with mic. best money iv,e spent in along time,got to give credit to slant six on this game,yes it may have been way below par for the us release but the game as improved ten fold since then thats coming from the hardcore socom fans.it should of been as now from release but i give slant praise for getting it back on track.this needs to be reveiwed again as the old scores don,t reflect the game it is now.iv,e dropped cod,resi,and killzone for this its becoming my favorite shooter out at present its just totally diferent from the run and gun genre.
i give no credit and respect, i do not give a fcuk about developer who release broken game, a game that finally starts to be playable 5 MONTHS down the line!!! what the heck is that!!! it is not fair!!!!!!!! it is sick!!!! so once again KISS MY ASS Slant Six!!!
This is the best update yet. I'm am so glad they reduced the accuracy on the FAMAS. That was the IW of Socom Confrontation. The absolute noob gun.
does this update patch come with a full refund?
reported. learn good manners plz :/
Lol, you reported him in the Open Zone, and for this??? LOL
get over yourself and stop acting like a spoiled brat as if you've never bought a product before that you didn't like later on. If you've not sold off you copy of SOCOM:con by now what the hell are you waiting for? Full refund cause you played the beta, saw tonnes of video footage and even more articles and reviews... but still went ahead and bought the game anyways but now you're crying about "full refund"? That's ridiculously retarded. Give it up already that nonsense talk worked 5 months ago but now it's just old and pointless.
Unbelievable , looking at some of the fixes i can't believe they released the game like that, look at this one : "# Added center markers to all scopes and changed the color of the crosshairs so that they are visible at night." So all this time people playing with no crosshairs at night matches ? this really ridiculous. I'm glade i didn't pick it up at launch, i may pick it up now after the fixes, or maybe I'll wait to the next patch !!
You could use see the crosshair at night. With this patch it's just more visible. I didn't have a problem with that either way.
LOL. Look, each scope had different x-hairs. People didnt like some of the scopes because they were harder to aim with (like they didnt have a dot in the very center) Basically this is making it so that each scope has a center dot. (btw, I dont know if you ever played Socom, but you do not use scopes very often unless you snipe. This isnt COD. You dont bring up your scope every time you aim.)
I like this update.can't wait for dlc
This update is truely amazing. It gets rid of that fade crap at the beginning. It makes snipers the way they should be. And it make the weapon wheel work finally.
you got to give credit to developers. at least they keep bringin out up dates to improve game and fixs bugs. look at cod4 when that first came out with problems and still as.....its a great game and improving all the time
to COD4??? Stop, just stop now.
Seriously, this game is really underrated, I enjoy it more than Killzone 2. Everyone has a mic, and the game is very tactical and focuses on teamplay. This game is a MUST buy, the gameplay is awesome.
but I must wait for a sale, because I aint got no job! and da baby momma be callen, she want her hair did.
there are many men like you on SOCOM. It can be rather therapeutic and you get guys sympathizing with one another about how their women SUCK!... figuratively and literally.
For the price(without or with the headset) its a great and fun game.
even though it's not a "complete" socom. it's great to see them fix problems and support this game, even if it got started off on the wrong foot. gotta give them credit.
my favorite online game, best sound, best gameplay, graphics ok,the best communications cristal clear with no feedback and proxiimity chat
All I need now are more damned maps S6. It's been 6 months dudes, let's go! ... oh how the SOCOM forums are going to be flooded with FAMAS noobs crying to kingdom come hehehehe XD FANTASTIC UPDATE.
yea i just got back into socom and man i missed it. the updates fixed everything that 1 second freeze is gone and it also runs way more smoother so people who have the game but havent played in a while should get back into it the game is kick ass now!! fight for freedom!!
green da fck up. its on. Best 3rd person shooter this generation!
NO MORE DARKNESS!!!! Finally that gets annoying when you think you went through the door but your their kissing the wall after the dark fades out lol!! And thank you for the FAMAS and the weapon selection update ! Can't wait to D/L this went I get home!! Cya all online later!!! Central. Rooms only !!!
socom works & runs circles around glitches of hoars.
I was psyched for the beta and then was turned off like many by the bugs and some lack of common sense in control design. I owned all socom's (bought socom1 week 1) and I am getting tired of FPS run and gun noobs, I miss tactical rounds with no respawn. Dying actually means something and adds intensity to the game. Should I buy this? Is this worth my money? (I have a bluetooth) Or should I just save it for some other things like Fat Princess (which I will be buying regardless)
