Socom Confrontation Public Beta Update

Posted by Seth Luisi

Due to overwhelming demand for the SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation Public Beta, we are experiencing load related issues. These issues are causing abnormal latency, disconnects, long load times, login errors and community features such as clans and stats not functioning correctly (or at all).

We are doing everything we can to resolve these issues as quickly as possible and you should see some improvements progressively over the next couple of days. However, we do not expect to have the issues completely resolved until close to the end of next week.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

they need to release Pre-Beta Beta's. Its a little late in the game to get overloaded by traffic now.

They apparently dont want to dish out too much bandwith and not need that much than have too little for the gamers in the beta.

But its a fixable problem it seems.

They should've learned from MGO's mistakes too. Planning a controlled beta should be like planning a party. Always have more <beer/food/whatever> than you expect to serve. They know how many keys are out there. I'm getting tired of people saying to us "stop b1tching". They should've been prepared for this. That being said, I know problems can occur and I'm getting in for it's not that big of a deal. I can wait for a couple more days.

At least you have recieved your email for the beta. I still haven't got mine. [Sad_Face]

Yay that means us Qore subscribers won't get owned when we finally get it.

C_SoL4322d ago

Home had the same issue........

wolfehound224322d ago

Man I know what the [email protected] When they release a full completely done game to the public it should have no bugs oh wait thats right its a beta. Well when I pay all this money too... oh ya I didn't pay anything. You all are pathetic. Apparently no one got the memo, beta = test. Which means lets see how the servers hold up. Lets see if the game lags. You all need to realize this.
When the full game is released and it still has these issues everyone feel free to complain. But if you where expecting a masterpiece out of a beta. Maybe you shouldn't be apart of betas anymore.

but you don't know how these things work at all. Its not as simple as you seem to think it is. This is what beta testing is for, usually people like you are not invited to beta tests.

Fowack4322d ago

meaning that there were 3 times as many people trying to get on at the same time as they expected.

this beta has many problems
frame rate is one
i wish zipper would have done the version
its not real classic socom view
sh!t is slower now
sh!t is [email protected]@ked up
im mad
logging in problems

Jandre024322d ago

1. You can change the view to classic like i did, lol. Go to options while your in the game and change the view to "classic"
2. He said the lag issues were because of the huge number of people that logged on at once (more people than I saw on SOCOM3/CA last time I logged on)

3. The game is slower now, hopefully they see the amount of complaints about this. It feels like SOCOM...but in slow motion.
4. I am having lots of fun with this game.

chasegamez4322d ago (Edited 4322d ago )

sorry but its still not 3rd person
the camera the way to close

warhawk has real 3rd person view

They've also downgraded the graphics too. See image to see a picture from 07, one of the first screenshots Sony showed us of the new Socom, and compared to a beta screenshot of this year...

The main thing I'm pointing out in terms of graphics are the player model textures, notice how nice, crisp, sharp they looked back in 07, and now in 08, what we have now, they're blurry, flat, and yea...idk, I also put another 07 screenshot too, which looks a ton better then what we're playing now

INehalemEXI4322d ago

I hope its smooth by the time us qore folk get in.

EastCoastSB4322d ago

But they should've been prepared for this sort of thing.

name4322d ago

Betas are there to stress test the servers and such.

1Shot1Kill4322d ago

I understand this is a beta but come on! It's a broken nightmare on line and I've just given up at this point. How can we test a game if we cant even play it? They have total control over how many people are in the beta and they should of been prepared for it. Not sending a good message to other devs who want to beta test on the PSN.
