Lock And Load: Announcing The New SOCOM

Richard Yap writes:

"Hi All,

Just wanted to share some really exciting news with you about Zipper Interactive who recently released the brilliant MAG. The guys have busy working away on the re-envisioning of a certain military franchise that they are hugely passionate about… I'm pleased to announce that an all new SOCOM is gunning its way exclusively to PS3!" (PS3, Socom 4)

What.... a.... let down!

Seriously.... This is the "suprise"?!

Sony, where are the uber-good sequels you should be doing for the PS3?

Where is the AAA SuperStardustHD 2?!
Where is the AAA Road Rash remake?!
Where is the first person, online AAA X-Com?!
Where is the Destruction Derby HD with dashboard view?!

Socom?! WTF?!?!?!?!

Holy Crap! That's the BIG SURPRISE!? :(

Geoff keighley can go burn himself with his hype machine

You serious? You must not know how many people loved Socom back in the PS2 days and how many people wanted a Socom game from zipper this gen. This is huge for PS2 gamers.

Socom on ps2 was socom on ps2

Present: Zipper Interactive is Sony's weakest Dev

Nostalgia won't make them good again sorry

Gotta agree with Chaser.

The announcement being a new Socom game is a major let down. As if there are not enough military games already.

Playstation is about diversity, Socom is just... well, a disappointing suprise. As somebody on the EU official forums said

"Well, at least nobody mentioned Socom. So it is a suprise I suppose..."

To which somebody replied...

"Yeah, there's a reason for that!"

Well everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Alot of gamers see Socom and think Socom confrontation(which wasn't made by Zipper). This game should be alot better then Mag and Socom Confrontation. I know alot of longtime PS2 gamers will enjoy this. They've been asking for it for a while now.

I'm a bit disappointed too, I've never liked much SOCOM series, but I respect other people that like that game. I wished it was Motorstorm 3, Syphon Filter, Demon's Souls 2, LittleBigPlanet 2, Resistance 3 or Killzone 3.... But SOCOM? Nope, it never crossed my mind.

Hmm, gotta admit, that hasn't got me very excited at all.

Zipper did a helluva job with MAG, I expect the same from SOCOM4
JustinSaneV2  +   1752d ago
I'm definitely a little disappointed with this announcement considering all the hype behind it.

Will be a good game, no matter what. Don't try to compare with Confrontation.
