Who said SOCOM Confrontation looks bad. New bangan screens after the jump.
these pics rock..
That first pic made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
Xroads in HD is just insane.
o MAN Its gonna be sooo fun online!!!
I can feel that SOCOM II vibe buzzing right thorugh me. I'm actually aching with anticipation.
All these newage gamers that think CoD4 is the end-all and be-all of military shooters need to step into this game to see what beinging a Legend in online military shooters is all about.
Actually, I'm kinda getting really irritated with all this guys that think CoD4 is the holy grail for FPSs or shooters in general. It's like they've never played anything else - apart from maybe halo - in their whole lives.
Did you see the pics that show the games in day and night?
which one are you talking about?
yea yo, crossroads at night!
OMG i want this now!!
...you for real?????
These images don't look anywhere near as good as COD4 multiplayer and thats been out over half a year. SOCOM gameplay must rock because these screenshots sure don't.
Visually, the game doesn't look great, to be honest, certainly wouldn't say it looks bad, though. I have faith in the franchise, though; gameplay should be excellent...definitely a buy for me.
Socom murders COD4 in online gameplay. They way everything is setup online is perfect for clans and everything.
Will Socom portray the black man better than COD4? http://screenshot.xfire.com...
1) SOCOM is allll about gameplay 2) its a downloadable PSN title, so they're not really using it to its full capablities (a 25GB or 50GB bluray disc)...its most likely a small download but with that said...SOCOM never revolutionized graphics, but the online gameplay is unmatched
Isn't SOCCOM only online like Warhawk?
Yep, this one is just like Warhawk...online only. SOCOM US Navy S.E.A.L.S.: Confrontation. and more than likely carry the same pricing as Warhawk - $39.99 USD - Download Version from PSN $59.99 USD - Blu-ray Version with a Bluetooth Headset -then a few months later, 39.99 Blu-ray Version without headset SOCOM 4, however will be a full-fledged PS3 game and the proper sequel to SOCOM 3, however it'll more than likely have PSN functionality too. But it's not going to be released until well into 2009.
Another disappointing title, like MGO this will not be as good as AAA online experiences on XBOX LIVE like Halo 3 and Gears of War
is nothing but a SPAMbot. You can basically predict every one of his comments before he even types them. He's like those penis enlarging pill emails, except it's just his same crap on every other article. It's so boring to see all the time. I hope he at least gets paid for his hard work that he does for Microsoft. I'm sure he has single-handedly drawn millions to the 360. lol. Thank God we have 2 different zones.
Damn Zhuk, r u paid to be on MS's nut or what?
I find it pathetic that you would even mention a game as lame as Halo 3 - the Hack n Slash of FPS. Halo is a game for little kids. Socom is all about tactics. Halo can't even support 1/2 the players, and the levels in Halo are 1/3 the size.
Zhuk, I do actually feel sorry for you.
"this will not be as good as AAA online experiences on XBOX LIVE like Halo 3 and Gears of War " believe it or not, Socom offers the best online experiences ever.
COD4 is not even RunNGun its SitPrayNSpray Socom and MGO are where the tatics are at. dont care about graphics for socom only gameplay.
COD4 is racist too... look at this fools lips. http://screenshot.xfire.com...
silent shark your an idiot they obviusly drew that as a portrait of a real person so in you saying hes got big lips you are actually being racist not the people who drew him oh and there are white people with big lips(not loads but some) so you are just a racist black person
S H A "N" K, Why is reading so hard for some people?
you've never played a SOCOM game? ohh... thats why. Socom pawns all shooters in tactical and gameplay. Sorry you're gonna miss out
I think I like SilentShark better...
NG2 is Another disappointing title, like GeoW2 this will not be as good as AAA online experiences on PSN like R2 and KZ2
Zhuk how is MGO dissapointing? did you even play it?,if you did i guess you where one of those guys that got their but kicked by me. go win a few rounds then you will enjoy it.
A game in development with a released game, with screenshots that are not really comparable as one is an open field and the other an arabian city, where on one you are pointing directly at the soldier while on the other one you seem to not be pointing at anything, or the soldier is on the lower right corner where you can barely see him? I've played GRAW2 before, and it plays exactly like GRAW. You should watch SOCOM in motion anyway, it looks better than the only shot you've ever seen.
Last gen, military shooters like R6, CoD etc were utter jokes compared to SOCOM. They've done much better this gen but SOCOM hasn't stepped into this gen yet and will be doing so with what is essentially a warm-up game.
You'll see why those other military shooters were considered a joke once SOCOM come out. Only the strong survive, you'll either have to learn and build your skill or you end up pwned and fraustrated blaming the game for your crappiness.
Make no mistake about it, this isn't some insanely noob friendly game like CoD4 where everyone just needs to hold down a button and get kills, kinda like "everyone gets a trophy" sports tournaments for kids. Ever wonder why SOCOM vets seemingly crush other players on other online shooters? Yup, that's right, cause once you become good at SOCOM everything else seems like gravy.. kinda like how it is with Counter Strike gamers on the PC.
So come SEP 13 - STFU, MAN THE f* UP and GTF^ or GTFO!
hmm, looks alright for an online game. I've never played any of the past socom games so this will be fresh for me. btw, are there any vehicles in this game?
who dont like socom? its a lie if you say its not good. its by far the funnest.
nothing can touch socom.
It isn't Socom with vehicles. Glad to see there are no vehicles included.
nice pics. cant wait for this awesome game!
Sorry but after really observing COD4 graphics they are really not that great. This game is about on par.
Yup, CoD 4 and Socom's graphics appear to be on the same level. Except Socom feature 40 different guns with two attachments for each! Also each nation's troops will sport their own guns, for example the Germans will use the G36 instead of M16 and the French with the Famas. In other words this game is a tactical shooter's wet dream.
MGO can go crawl in a hole and die for all I care. I want this game, now.
yea dude, im still playing socom2 and combineassault man. but the recent game play of mgo i seen is worthy to hold me over.
MGO beta was great in my opinion. I miss it dearly. It was very satisfying and intense to play and the box is so great to sneak with. Very good online game. SOCOM will be amazing. No online game better than this.
hell yea, im still playing socom 2 and combineAssault.
These are the worst graphics for this game that I've seen. What happened to the nice ones they were showing earlier.
if you want better Graphics than you must wait for Socom4, its already confirmed by Sony for 2009
CoD4 MILES AWAY?
Yes miles away
Where you found that pictures is that wii version.
I played it the first week - wasn't anything special. Your character moves at a snails pace, you have to fire a whole clip into someone b4 they die, and everyone uses autoaim!
The skill system was kinda lame, the best skills were the cqc and the move faster skills. The stealth elements weren't fleshed out at all unless you were the one lucky person who got to be Snake in that one game mode (forget what its called).
But yeah, getting back to Socom, this game puts Ghost Recon to shame, you can't even compare the 2. Ghost Recon has always tried to rip off Socom but its never near as good.
all this socom talk is making me hungry....ya smell me? combineassault here i come! its like a Fing drug yo man.
I am not giving MGO 'false praise' you idiot. Just because you didnt like the game doesnt mean anyone who does is giving it 'false praise'.
So, here I am giving genuine praise: I think MGO is really good.
MGS is an example of a game that doesn't need multiplayer. The gameplay doesn't lend itself to multiplayer, it's just a gimmick. The combat is just downright awful.
The aiming system is garbage. You can't see your bullets and the only way you can tell if you're hitting your target is by the little blood spatter. Is a decent death animation w/ some gore too much to ask for?
The levels consist of everyone just running around fighting randomly.
This game was not made w/ mp in mind and it shows. The mp was just tacked on.
There are so many better online games MGS is just a waste of time.
metal gear online
play B3YOND my fellows ps3 owners :)
Very good graphics for a PS2 game.
..Failure sensor overload...
hahaha that was moderately humorous but stupid.
The best online tactical game ever not even halo,cod4,mgo,killzone can beat socom Period.
add me biatch3sss psn id Superam socom2/3 true elite<<<<<<& lt;<<<<< quik sniper
I never thought you guys will say bye bye to COD4 so soon, tommorow most of you where saying COD4 to be the best shootem up which pwns every other game.
This is the reason for Halo 3 to be repeated again and again and I still think its useless to compare two good games of same console since you can get both and the decision is yours.
is making its return
Those screens cannot be representative of the game, seriously.
Not awesome either. But SOCOM will definitely prove itself with its amazing gameplay. Oh my god I miss playing SOCOM 2. Crossroads, chain reaction, blizzard, desert glory, frostfire. OH MY GAWD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm getting on SOCOM 2 right now. The servers are still up I hope(and I'm sure they are) and I have a brand new... well... refurbished 60gb ps3 I just played for 12 hours nonstop. Heavenly Sword is awesome by the way. SOCOM 2 HERE I COME! If anyone wants to get on with me, send me a PM!
is gonna kill every other shooting game out there...heck even gears of war 2.........esspecially online....32 players online with no lag...COD4 and gears 2 which they could do that...
gonna pick up combined assult again right now.... sca name is lookwhatidid psn id is impogo hit me up in an hour...
