Remakes are a hot topic in the gaming industry as we speak. But there is one franchise out there not getting the press it deserves...
I think more people want socom 2 hd although socom 1 is nice too I guess.
Unless it's a Halo CE Anniversary like overhaul, what's the point? Upscaling a game isn't exactly an HD update. It just looks horrible. I bought Resident Evil 4 HD and honestly, I'd just rather play it on my PS2. It just looks awful. Halo CE Anniversary does an HD remake right. Message for publishers, either do it properly or don't bother.
@StanLee Agree x 10,000... When the God of War collection was initially released, I was stoked and bought it day one. But since seeing what's going on with Halo CE, I really hope devs see that they can do more with a remake. Some titles have been great with the simple texture updates and trophy support, but I think that's a testament to how great the games originally were. But some games have been horrid with little care given to them, the Resident Evil HD ports are the prime examples.
I have to disagree. The graphics could use an update, but if they so much as touch any aspect of the gameplay, it would not be the same. I want the same movement, shooting, scoping, sniping... everything to be the same. Not to mention the maps. Socom 2 had the best maps of any shooter. And trust me, all socom fans would go back, but Socom1/2 were hacked to hell and kids run around with god mode. So if all they did was release it as a PSN game with hack free gameplay and smooth servers, it would be a dream come true and well worth $60.
Well unfortunately Zipper doesn't seem to "get it". An HD Collection would be the obvious thing to do, but I have a feeling that they will keep going in the wrong direction with this franchise unfortunately. Getting rid of Seth Luisi would be the first logical step to restoring this great franchise. My prediction as far as Zipper's future goes, is that if they produce another couple of 6/10 or 7/10 Metascore games, Sony will close or sell the Studio. These guys are the biggest black mark on Sony's first party studios right now, followed somewhat by Guerrilla Games IMO.
I grew up with Socom but I think its more preferred that S2 is better for an HD remaster, but both would be great in a single bluray wouldnt it? :D
Maybe if S1 HD is a hit, people will see an opportunity to make more money with S2 HD? Maybe having two extremely strong polls for both will inspire a "Legacy" or a legit S5 if/when that time comes? Who knows what will happen. The first step is to get SONY's attention by knocking directly on their front door. And it would come directly from the fans themselves... not a "summary" of our forum posts here, or as some pretty chart in a business meeting.
If the gameplay is the EXACT same, and I mean every single detail, then yes I would be all for this.
Socom 2 was way better. REMAKE THAT.
This. Everyone asked for S2, but they give us the first one? Meh...
SOCOM is the only reason I owned a PS3 and it sucked unbelievably bad. If Zipper was to remake SOCOM 2 in HD with the SAME EXACT gameplay, mechanics, maps etc just on servers with no lag. I'd sell my Xbox and every Xbox related product I own, buy a PS3 and SOCOM 2 HD and never play another game again. Played SOCOM 2 for 6 years, only reason I quit is because of the stupid cheaters.
Yes. You and I are in the same boat. I got some enjoyment out of Confrontation, but Socom 4 was an atrocity. I have completely given up on online shooters all together. Its just that nothing compares to the Socom 2 days. And yes, I would not play another game every again. You would see my ass sitting in a Foxhunt 24/7. Maybe mix it up with some Medly. God I miss Socom2. Too bad the people in control of this are morons.
just do Socom 2 remake for Vita and PS3 with cross platform play.
Id go Hat McCullough on some babies for Socom 1 or 2 HD
damit i thought this was real way to go n4g for letting my dreams down
if done right so that means any hd remake made by UBI or Capcom i am not buy at launch. looking at splinter cell hd collection its a poor job by UBI look at Resident evil 4 very poor job by capcom, that's why i have very very low hopes for DMC hd collection being done right socom series should get a hd collection of all 4 ps2 games in one package for 49.99 Jak and dexter should also see all 4 games made by ND in a hd collection, there has been talk of this but not all 4 only the first 3 but my thing is the jak game combat racing wise also has very good story so why not do it right ratchet and clank all 4 games on ps2 in one package should be done with their online features If 3 games it should be 39.99 if 4 games it should be 49.99 also yakuza 1-2 in HD even only on psn would be nice godhand maximo the legacy of kaie series rygar kingdom hearts 1-2 metal slug hd collection megaman x collection on psn/xblive there are so many single entry games that can do a hd remake and sell it for 14.99 to 19.99 here is hoping going forward in next few years hd collections improve
Socom 2 remake poll is already over 10k, get on the S1 remake and vote!
