The Wall Street Journal is reporting that SOCOM 4 is being set for a release date sometime in April of this year.
Hehe my thoughts exactly.
I know what I'm getting for birthday then.
April fools jokes are made in april, or im wrong?
how is it an april fools joke? i think thats a good time to release the game wasnt this game supposed to come out last year? if it did then that meant it was almost done with game or just polishing the game by april they should be done
April is perfect for me, LPB in Jan. Killzone in Feb. Crysis in Mar. then Socom in Apr. Hoping for L.A Noire in May and MGS Rising in June.
Socom's not really my cup of tea... but if it looks interesting I might pick it up.
I've never played a Socom but i'm looking forward to this. There aren't enough TPS games with squad commands and ones that involved tactics this gen. Sounds like it gonna be fun.
This game is looking sick so far, but I'll wait until Ghost Recon: Future Soldier comes out, even if it doesn't release until next year. Then, will I make my decision on which game I want.
Previous gen Socom games were great; the best in the genre. Let's hope this one impresses.
I'm looking forward to the single player online co-op. I'm hoping for a zombie mod too since there's a lot of bot AI. I'm kinda disappointed about the player count though for multiplayer after MAG but it is Socom so it's more tactical than skill.
Hope the game looks in better shape by then, as the demo i played a while back wasn't too impressive tbh.
Ah well that's a relief. There was absolutely no chance it could have been any other month. /sarcasm Watch it get delayed now. :P
I hope this is true I really want this game badly. I can't wait to get this and MotorStorm Apocalypse.
Socom used to be PS2's answer against Halo online. I can't really explain it, unless you played Socom 1 and 2... If Socom II HD released today, I can guarantee you that the lobby for Killzone, Battlefield, MOH, Resistance, Call Of Duty, etc... will be very empty.
i garuntee you they would still have many people playing them.
Yeah I guarantee it too...
ya all noobs lol socom is for pro's no doubt
ooooooohhhhhheeeeehhhh!!! a pwaystation gwoove title! cannot wait! ____________ Sony 'til I die
wow 7 exclusives in 4months.
thats insane isnt it
I only dose amount of Exclusive Ass Whippings.
does anybody recommend socom confrontation? it only costs £4
All the 'hardcore vets' will tell you to stay away from it. And while I agree its not the most accurate representation of what made SOCOM great, it is still a fun, highly played title. And at 4 pounds, its a great deal.
no its a piece of trash for a horrible developer and a complete waste...you can buy better stuff
I'm a SOCOM fan, but not a hardcore SOCOM fan. Hardcore SOCOM fans will tell you not to buy it because, for one, it's not made by Zipper and secondly, they're really strict about what they like in a SOCOM game. I would say yeah. Me and my frat brothers are SOCOM fans and we're all hoping that S4 has co-op. hehe. I recommend!
Try MAG instead. It's no Socom but you might like it. But it's very challenging for new players especially at lv1.
didnt really like mag :/
I thought about getting socom confrontation but there's so many QQs about it in the socom forums.
Sony should stop releasing all there AAAs in one year - seriously, I think 1 AAA exclusive a quarter is perfect. Save some for next year. 2010 was a bit lacking for exclusive greatness, 2011 means I'll be buying some in 2012 at discounted prices though. The dumbest thing is releasing there 2 FPS exclusives in teh same year again - Release a new Resistance game one year and a new KillZone the next or vice versa
YAY!!! oh wait socom is dead and has been a long time....they shouldnt even call it socom anymore
Ima die hard Socom fan i no dis 1 go great online graphics looks good... ATR=AboveTheRest best clan ever watch out
I'm excited and dissappointed. I'm a huge socom fan, just recently bought a second ps3, a 60gb BC model just for games like socom 1, 2 and 3. and socom 4 is made by zipper. excitement... yes.. but.. from what we can tell, its not socom. its not a true navy seals game. no mention of campaign voice commands. the engine/maps/characters look nothing, nothing like socom 1, 2 or 3. no boomer, no jester. come girl? as a socom fan, would i be excited for this game without the name socom on it? probably not.. sony does great things and moves franchises forward. but one thing they do horrible is hold on to what makes some franchises great and go completely left field with it. reminds me of motorstorm. motorstorm was great just had a some menu lag. great off road racer. the new motorstorms have absolutely nothing to do with off road racing its more of a mad max world racer.. makes no sense to make such drastic changes.
SOCOM is core gaming. I hope Zipper interactive continues the the tradition of SOCOM and doesn't water it down. Glad to see SOCOM returning and so far it looks great. The PS3 has the best diverse line up of exclusive shooters coming out this year. KZ3 SOCOM R3
All this game needs in my opinion, note I said my opinion. 1.a better art direction (a combination of mgs4, gears and killzone will do) for a better and more realistic graphics in other words make this game darker and grittier with that sense of realism. 2.physics and AI ressembling those in killzone 3.2 player co op split screen and 4 player online co op. 4. A good score to set the mood. 5. A solid plot 6. Bring back the multiplayer feel of socom 2 to this game. Off topic sony should consider bringing syphon filter to the ps3, if not a new syphon filter game. Than give me a full blown remake from the grown up to syphon filter logans shadow. And add everything i mentioned towards socom to it as well as move compatibility.
I'm not a hudge fan, but it looks very nice.
