Ironstar: Zipper Int. tatical 3rd person shooter, Socom 4, will be making its way on to the PlayStation 3 later on this year.
Im surprised that it actually looks really nice.
You know I kind of thought it looked a little generic to be honest. I want to try it out with Move tho. @Alpha - It was beautiful! GT5 and KZ3 were jaw dropping! (on GTTV)
Man this looks so precise with playstation Move its amazing that theres no other devices out there that provide such accuracy!
i hate you.
I think conloles's double face of a trolling is quite funny, don't hate the troll, feed them to explode.
I agree, I thought the trailer was uninspiring. The game could be excellent but the trailer doesn't convey that. They did a better job with the MAG trailers.
Yeah it looks good not Killzone 3 or Uncharted 2 quality but better then most
Nothing like bringing your A game to the world of motion control in hardcore fashion. That looked like a lot of nights down the drain already dedicated to SOCOM 4.
All I hope is that Zipper can return the Socom glory.
D4RkNIKON just like Halo (as some fanboys say), Socom is not about graphics it's about game play and multiplayer I just hope to god this game has a single player story.
I'll wait to see how it turns out. Hopefully it has a good SP
It looked alright. Personally I just want to see the multiplayer, not that interested in the story. Hurray GT5 is next! And K3 in 12 minutes :O
the game looks great. better than confrontation of course lol. looking foward to the multiplayer as well.
funny how they showed like 3 or 4 ps3 exclusives and not one for microsoft.
I think that's because they have a contract to live broadcast the microsoft press conference monday.
Don't worry, they'll show off more video of people flailing their arms and legs around like idiots on that exclusive Natal Dodge Ball game.
Thankfully, this will wash my eyes from the Red ball epidemic going on...
Haven't played a Socom since part 3 on the Ps2, I'm glad they're out of the jungle this time around, the urban environment is a welcomed change. I hope it stays true to the series and haven't change it to a run and gun shooter, we have enough of those.
Combined Assault, & Confrontation were out of jungle environment.
Socom was never fully based in a Jungle environment....what the hell are you talking about? Socom 2 had a bit of jungle, but you simply don't know what the f*** you're talkin about.
this is worse than that so-called killzone-killer, bfbc 2. jaggies galore, ugly art direction, and poor animations. it actually looked a lot like MAG. but MAG was 256 players so mediocre graphics is excused. FU, zipper, the ps3 can do better than this.
are you serious?the graphics are pretty good looking actually.
if you are a real socom fan then you would buy it no matter what it looks like besides everyone knows socom is all about the gameplay if you played the first 3 and it look great. I think its great there releasing 2 games in the same year which is great and more Sony exclusives in the end
Agree, this shit looked boring and generic, as well as crappy graphics! The old socom2 campaign was stealthy and required skill , Socom 4 campaign looks like a shit fest . I guess they still have the MP...which will be equal to the other 20 socom games out there....
ps3 is the future and the future is ps3
Doesn't seem very "Seal" like..
socom always had other forces,sas,army,etc
USSOCOM has SAS? Lmfao.
What the hell were you expecting? The game looked really good and the graphics are really on par and what you expect from a PS3 exclusive. Did you saw the details...the explosioins, smoke flying parts, the fkn explosions, the buildings falling, the broken window glasses, the detailed characters... maybe I saw another trailer but this was the second best looking game of the presentation behind KZ3 obiously. OHHH now I know...you were comparing it to the CG of Star Wars The Force Unleashed 2... my bad!!. PEACE AND GAMING!!!!
as a socom fan i'm still not sold oh, i'm buying it.. i'm just not sold
As a Socom fan, wait until they show the multiplayer... that's all that matters.
Day 1 buy for me!
MG has me hooked so i'll be all over this come Fall. and i'll get it with the Move!!!!
they're attacking hongkong?
No offense and I big up PS3 exclusives but I thought the graphics were kinda ass
I'm not hating everyone, just stating my opinion. Disagree if you want but you can check my comments I just bigged up GT5 and KZ3. I thought the graphics would be better in this game. But than again it's a trailer and it's not actual gameplay in succession. Hopefully my first impression is wrong. I'm not calling the game bad though by any means.
but i don't know if you saw the Move footage they gave of this game, it looked 1000x better these gametrailers are all messed up, even FO3NV and bulletstorm and other games look like ass, so i wouldn't worry
I have not ill check it out! Thanks
They showed nothing in the trailer with regards to tactical assault, which is a major disspointment. The general look of the characters is bland and the overall art style seems lacking. the graphics are good, but room for improvement remains. The story seems very mw esque, which worries me because mw is extremely linear, and that's not a good thing in a tactical shooter.
this looks like a generic PC game, i feel the character models as well as the environment could use more detail. Make the characters look and feel a bit heavier like gears of war, now this game could have rival it if not for obvious graphical differences and gore. I like the fact that they are throwing a story element to it and all. Now i don't have anything against the idea of a female character being in the game, but regardless of her part/purpose in the games plot. No matter what the developers say at the end of the day, the game is call socom 4: us navy seals. And anyone who knows about seals clearly knows women aren't in the seals because they cant join. This alone contradicts the title. The other day i was watching a movie call "tears from the sun" starting Bruce Willis, and just watching how intense and gory it was, i said to myself "that's how they should reinvent socom'.. You know make it feel more, gory,tactical,heart pounding, exhilarating, graphical, physical and less plastic. I don't want to sit home playing a game that looks like I'm running in thin air with manikins holding guns. Gears of war, Metal gear solid, Uncharted, do TPS games justice and i just wish Sony has zipper follow those footsteps. I'm just saying i don't want perfect but i expect better for my 60 bucks, especially at this point in time where there are a bunch of exclusives showing superiority. They should had naughty dog or guerrilla help em out with the physics and graphics, while leaving everything else to them zipper. I know graphics don't make a game, but at this point in time, at this stage where exclusives are looking miles ahead i shouldn't have to settle for less. I'm sorry but I'm giving this game a pass for now.. looks like a rushed job, hope it don't feel like one either for their sake. who knows maybe they spent too much time and resources building that concept call MAG, maybe next time. On this note i just hope syphon filter doesn't succumb to this type of development mediocrity, god only knows how much i love syphon filter. Anywho this is just my personal opinion.
wat socom is not gears ffs u want a big slow moving block with arms that goes into a sprint tunnel when it needs to move quickly for a tactical shooter!? Yeah the game looks a little MW2 inspired but you cant blame then for that because so many idiots lap it up. Actual gameplay the game looks sound: http://www.gametrailers.com...
You're entire rant could've been summed up by, "I'm a drama queen and I like to whine and complain about things I know little about!" It would've saved everyone here time. "You know make it feel more, gory,tactical,heart pounding, exhilarating, graphical, physical and less plastic. I don't want to sit home playing a game that looks like I'm running in thin air with manikins holding guns." --You just described KZ2. Also, you just sound like a douche. Like someone if I saw walking on the street I would just want to punch in the face because there's something about you that makes me want to punch you in the face.
Looks great, nice all in game trailer.
It cracks me up how everyone gets on here to "analyze" and "critique" a video like they're some kind of expert. It really seems the trolls are coming out of their caves tonight! Socom is be nice graphically (not great, it's not a graphics powerhouse, nor has the series ever been), it will have solid gameplay, and it will have an excellent tactical multiplayer. That's what Socom is, and it will excel at those features.
I just want MAG 2 with more maps, vehicles and better graphics....from zipper
The Textures are very poor. The videos with move were a lot of better.
It looks good but it isnt Socom anymore, more like Full Spectrum Warrior.... Cover system all the way down the rubble ridden street.... way to ruin the gameplay we love. SOCOM 2 HD - REMAKE!
Idk what the heck are these people talking about. The game looks pretty nice to me. Yes, the trailer wasn't spectacular, but I'm sure there will be more to the main campaign than this run and shoot thing. And if it doesn't, whatever - I'm way more excited about it's multiplayer than the singleplayer (which I see as a bonus feature). Definitely a day one purchase to me. And I'm not even a Socom vet, I'm a newcomer!
I don't know what Zipper is doing tbh, but that trailer didn't wow me in any way. What the hell happen with the SOCOM us originals came to love so much? I understand they want to appeal to other people, but does that mean to kill your current fanbase in the process??? If SOCOM 4 was just SOCOM 2 with better graphics, I would of been sold. Idk, I really shouldn't say this yet since my statement is more toward the pre-alpha demo with the PS move and there is still E3, but being the SOCOM fan that I am and waiting 5-6 years for a REAL SOCOM game to come out for the PS3, I'm kinda worried I'll be let down by Zipper. So with that said, I'll hold back on the rest I want to say now, but SOCOM 4 has some stuff to prove come E3. Good thing though is that even if SOCOM 4 doesn't come through I'll still have MAG, which I'm loving to death.
Has never been about graphics...its always been about gameplay. for those of you harping on the graphics...please dont pick up this game. its for the hardcore only...go play uhmm "cod"..or some other substanse-less shooter. thank you
American special ops in Shanghai(the simplified chinese on the road sign and the landmark buinding) with a Korean team member(emblem on her arm)? What is that all about?
What is with people saying it doesnt look that good? it looks fantastic and its not even out yet - plus really looking forward to a 3rd person game like this, loved uncharted so will be great to play a 3rd person game with a different theme
Graphics are average and MAG like.
I would get a PS3 to play this.
