Former IGN journalist Chris Roper was recently laid off on March 10, 2010. Although there's no official statement as to why, he did make an entrance on Socom 4 main website. That's right; Zipper Interactive has taken the initiative and hired Chris Roper as their newest Community Specialist. Now he will be monitoring both Socom 4 and MAG forums on a regular basis. After seven years of Playstation coverage on IGN, it's inspiring to see this exceptional journalist still making it in the gaming industry.
