Sony Corp.'s U.S. game division on Mon. said that the first few days of the server environment for the new release SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs: Confrontation were rocky and that the company will release a new patch to resolve other game errors.
It simply sucks. Beyond repair probably. So Socom crashed, Motorstorm 2 got a 6 out of 10 from the Official Playstation Magazine... Seems only LBP is doing great for the PS3 this winter.
Mart... ... ... Kindly shut the hell up. Do you have a PS3? No Are you playing this game? No Are you a hypocritical dipsh*t who likes to cry wolf when PS3 fans are on 360 articles and yet you are on PS3 articles? Yes Get the f*ck out of here and take your troll accounts with you.
Nothing on the 360 can match the multiplayer player online aspects of this game. The maps are not small and flat and you get a choice of 4x4 , 8x8 or 16x16.
"Nothing on the 360 can match the multiplayer player online aspects of this game" Yeah on 360 multiplayer games actually work on launch day unlike PS3 where TF2, R6V, GTA IV, COD4, MGS4 and now SOCOM Confrontation are released horribly broken. Beta? Whats the point? You Sony worshipers can cry about $4 a month and "laggy" P2P servers all you want. Atleast the games ACTUALLY WORK without waiting for weeks for a patch. Then when you do finally connect 7 out of 10 people don't have a mic. My PS3 only gets used for exclusives and Blurays. Only thing the PS3 is good for. Give it up Sony fumbled this generation. Its online service is a joke and Home is MIA.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Juuken spun that faster than helicopter rotors. The bïtch couldn't even get a good spin on you. The only reason is because it's all truth. Oh and at mario, who by the way shouldn't earn the right to put mario in his name, doesn't mean much when the game is a...
You should take some notes from your comment also... Do you have a 360? No Are you playing any games on the 360? No Are you a hypocritical dipsh*t who likes to cry wolf when 360 fans are on PS3 articles and yet you are on 360 articles? Yes Get the f*ck out of here troll.
Ouch. No wonder his/her bubbles are diminishing... ;)
I dont think you can really comment, because it seems you dont own a a ps3.. And your comment about beyond repair is very one sided , software can be fixed through patches and coding... Unlike hardware problems on the 360 it has to go through either minor or major re engineering.
lol the bots are here to troll here too. did you forget the first day of Halo 3??? lol bots....
I don't think SOCOM had over million players trying to connect online. I'm sure Halo 3 did though.
Well I have a 360 you piece of crap pinhead. I have had 4 and I have discovered the only thing that can't be patched is a console that is poorly designed...no matter how much they slash the price or try to add on things that should have been there in the first place. Where is your PS3 jackoff? After all this is a PS3 article yet it is flooded with sad little trolls that wouldn't know a real console if it popped out of the toilet and bit them on the ass. They know what a turd is - they support one - they just don't know a real console. There isn't a SOCOM class action lawsuit right now. But there is one against Microsoft for their piece of crap console. This game will get attended to properly, it will grow, improve, get DLC, expand and nothing you sad little troglodytes can say will matter one iota. Just stand there on the other side of the fence and yell but nothing will remove the fact that you see games like SOCOM, LBP, R2, Killzone2, MGS4 and just kick the ground. Not in public. You don't have the balls to be honest. With only one game coming this fall, and it's a makeover with a sad coat of paint and a few slight of hand tricks that hardly suffice in the place of real innovation, there is no wonder you 360 bowel movements are spending all of your time attacking a PS3 product. What the hell, the entire Microsoft house is built of crap and attacking the other guy. You can hardly expect Microshaft to build their console experience on what they are. After all, less than zero is less than nothing. What's a real game from M$? Here are a few: Last Race to the Sun - This exciting new title is played by console owners just turning their 360s on and waiting a matter of minutes as they race to see whose console will be the last one to burst into flames. (*note* There won't be a PS3 version as Sony owners would always be the last console standing and win by default) Patience - A new game as 360 owners take bets on who will be the last 360 owner to turn on M$ as they slowly begin to realize what a piece of crap they have been tricked into buying by M$. Caught in Time - A new and exciting game for 360 owners as they are fed a recycled title called Gears of War that is barely changed aside from a number 2 slapped on the box. Slowly owners must reconcile their fate as they discover they are caught in time and realize Gears 2 is the same plastic crap from the first game. Groundhog Day meets Unreal Tournament in this exciting game from the same people that invented the Recycle Bin. Fable 3 - A new game from France (warning lights right there) where 360 owners are caught in a fantasy world in which their console actually works. Watch as 360 owners discover what a shallow, short term life the 360 offers. Experience the thrill as the wicked horde tries to throttle and destroy the few 360 owners who realize the truth as they attempt to locate the secret portal that will allow them to cross over to the PS3 and be free from the meaningless life and prostituted experience they had in the land of the 360.
Wow!! That Jealous of Socom eh? poor kids... /goes back to socom..
It's nice to see how popular the PS3 is, the 360 trolls don't have any interesting news on their section and they come to the PS3 section because they got nothing new....
Wow!! You actually want to play SOCOM over Gears of War or Halo 3, eh?
With a name like that, you shouldn't EVEN call me a troll. F*ck you and your stupid troll accounts and your stupidity. You created an account because you felt Sony let you down? Go on Patchstation, try and deny that you own a PS3. Sony hasn't let down ANYONE. Part of the reason why they f*cked up last year is because tards like you expected things RIGHT AWAY. It was Sony's arrogance and constant whining of delays from impatient ass people that left them in 3rd place. Now they're trying to do something about that, you have to sh*t on them again. Seriously, get a life. Do you have a 360? (My brother has one and I have played on it. I was also not too happy with the controllers disconnecting) Are you playing any games on the 360? (I played DMC4, Virtua Fighter 5, and played a little of Halo 3. Again, No. Nice way of assuming things though. You fail.) Are you a hypocritical dipsh*t who likes to cry wolf when 360 fans are on PS3 articles and yet you are on 360 articles? (No I don't. I only tell it like it is with 360 fanbrats who think Microsoft should rule the world with an iron fist.) You fail at life once again Patchstation. Well, well, well, yet another new account bashing the PS3! It's very clear to see 360 fanbrats are jealous of the Playstation 3, now that it's gaining momentum and popularity!
scared sh!tless and trying to SPAM us with toxic rumours from their busy ASS no it ain't gonna make a difference guys: wipeoutHD, LBP, R2, SOCOM are all coming out and will poop on your sh!tty lineup no matter how much you whine lol
Excellent.Feedback from gamers has been spectacular on this.Everything is A-ok
This is because Sony listens to gamers. I love how these turds are attacking a company for saying we are going to work hard on this product. How many times has HALO been patched? And how is that savior of the 360 Too Human working out? When was the last time media whore Denis Dyack posted about how they were going to fix that piece of crap? No, when MS decides Ensemble can't be kept alive on the table then you can forget about ever seeing Too Human parts 2 or 3.
Halo 3 has been patched a lot to offer better online (which was fine from Day 1 - unlike this and all other Socom games), and Halo 3 unlike Socom draws hundreds of thousands of players each day/night versus 20,000 - 30,000 on Socom. As a former Socom vet i had to draw the line. Sony NEVER listened on previous versions of Socom. they had board moderators on Socom 3 and Combined Assault. But that merely played like an Alpha then Beta build of the game. It does not surprise me that the game is horrible at launch. If Zipper really wanted the most out of that game they should have gone multiplatform instead of selling out to Sony. Oh well Rogue Warrior is coming which is truly overseen by a REAL Navy Seal and should show you how online is supposed to work. As much as i would love to go back to the days of playing Frostfire, Crossroads, etc. - I have to leave Sony and Socom in the past. RIP !!!
A real Navy SEAL? Yes but ha ha, Marcinko is one of the biggest liars in the history of the military. You probably believe his books. A respected SEAL? No. Yes he was a SEAL but there was no honor in his retirement, he was thrown into jail for theft of unit funds and quite a few other abuses. Bob Gormley had to clean up his crap when he took over after Marcinko made a mess as an incompetent CO. Unlike Marcinko, Gormley was respected by his fellow SEALs. Marcinko is a joke in the NAVSPECWAR and SOF community and everyone in the community knows it. Also I played the beta of Rogue Warrior last year as part of a proofing test with Bethesda. One of the privileges of the trade. It could be good - it had a lot of issues and that is why it has been delayed and delayed but don't expect realism or accuracy at all. And it doesn't have that thing that makes SOCOM like crack so keep dreaming. Zombie hasn't had a good game since the original Spec Ops and even then it only worked right with Voodoo cards running Glide. SOCOM's Chief advisor was MC Rob Roy - a guy that retired from the SEALs...honorably. The next time you open your flytrap do some research.
Two more remarks before I thow your corpse onto the Ignore pile. Microsoft eventually ruins everything they ever touch. The PlayStation made SOCOM what it is. But you are too ignorant to get that. Also, since you don't know I will slap you on your blockhead with this rhetorical question. If SOCOM is so bad why is every room, every game I enter full of people talking about how much damn fun the game is? You are just a sad inconsequential person and all of your attacks won't change the fact that the game is a blast to play and people love it.
but bioshock is @ 94 on metaprick. and mart u know what's funny about M2. It improves in every area that people didn't like or moaned about, and it still gets lower scores then the original. Comical.
i know right.
sorry my comment ended up here some how sorry ... oo yeah just got the beta key for R2 from gamesspy.
I'm kinda glad so i have more time to play Resistance 2 and level up special ops!
New patch, hopefully the servers will run much smoothly afterward.
I just bought mine from ebay and I think I'll only get it in a couple of days or maybe next week! I actually bought it for the headset as I've never played any SOCOM games before but I would really love to try it out because I heard a lot of good things about previous SOCOMs. you sound like you're already in. so, actually, how bad is it? mind to clarify a little bit?
the gameplay is amazing but the server issues are a pain. not game-breaking tho...
The problems are actually pretty bad as far as I have experienced. I have not been able to play more than a single game without problems making the game all but unplayable. I will be fine in one game but if I switch to a different one I almost always either freeze, can't load the game, or I get timed out of the server. I have never had any other problems playing online. If the patch doesn't make things better I am going to have to trade in this game for something that will actually allow me to enjoy myself.
From what I heard on the BitBag - WarZone Podcast the game was shipped with over a hundred glitches and code issues. Sony is actively working on the issues and will have a patch out in about two weeks or so. A Sony programmer said it was a shame but it's how things ended up and they are doing something about it. It's no biggie for me since SOCOM is not a pick up and play then drop after a month kind of game. It is a game you play for a long time so a week or two more wait is no problem.
but I've bought the thing and I think I'll wait for them to patch it perfect. thatnx guys! +bubbles to all of you!
I hope they fix the freeze problems. I can't finish one match. The game is very fun though.
plz fix the freezing...
I've been saying that most of these problems are with the PS3 itself and not the games. I am glad to hear that its actually fixable. Things like the game freezing because of the mic use and things like that aren't something I think we can blame on developers. I am happy Sony is addressing this so quickly since I absolutely love this game.
Yeah, that's about all I can say about that post.
when you use a mic? .....yea, its SOCOM.
I'm really not happy about this, but hopefully the patch will fix things.
YOU RULE MART IM YOUR BIGGEST FAN. GIVE THOSE SONY TURDS HELL BUDDY!!!
thanks sony...ill save my money for real games...
Couldn't have said it better myself. I have plenty of money to buy a PS3, but each time I almost do, I see ten more articles telling me not to. Damn. FailStation.3 can't catch a break!
too bad your console got only 2 games this season
maybe only 2, but we both know they're better than all of yours combined :)
let's see... fable 9.0 and falling LPB 9.7 and raising we just need to see GeoW2 and KZ2, but I have higher hopes on GeoW2
Oh, I didn't realize MediocreSequelZone 2 was coming out this year. Sorry, but R2 has to go up against Gears this season. And yeah, we both know how that's going to turn out. Ayup.
that goes to killzone 2 ------------------------- HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Put away your fanboy googles kid.
Even an elementary school dropout would realize the level of hypocrisy you're commiting. Sad you aren't. *puts on ignore list*
by all means, provide reasoning for why you think that. If you can't then your opinion is null and void for all it's worth (or lack of worth). Good to know that they are trying to fix this asap. We can only hope that the present issues do not detract potential buyers for the game.
Looks like you will be spending more time now in the Open Zone where you belong..
LOL well sed juuken. And by the way The MART why are you even going on about socom and motorstorm 2 ? Its LBP,R2 and KZ2 thats going to bury ure XFLOP.
Lots of Sony lovers always complain about xbox live being buggy and laggy... and what do we have here? lol! I almost feel bad for you sony leg humpers.... (almost)... waiting a long time to see Socom flop the way it has... lol!
stop acting like a dumb spanish guy. your inferior brain is pulsating right now. The fact that a software patch can fix it and your beloved 3fixme cannot be patched to fix the RROD via software makes you an inferior being.
Socom Is cool
Seriously this game would have been good as a launch title (i think it was supposed to be but got delayed, could be wrong thought) but to be honest it just isn't that great. Especially when you have so many AAA titles just around the corner Gears 2, LBP, Fable II, Resistance 2, Call of duty world at war. I just think it caters to a niche group of people that have been playing it since the first one. Other then the that the game is average, nothing I haven't seen before. I give it a 7 tops.
if its nothing you've seen before why is gears special. the only new thing that game brought is the reload function, thats it.
iv always really loved socom games in the past..was never great at em but always enjoyed myself. is it worth it for a guy like me to buy this game for online only. im just looking for advice cause once R2 drops there goes all my online time.
is more strategy than twitch shooter. In fact, twitch shooting style gets you owned in this game. You should play SOCOM like Counter Strike, except with added teamwork.
Love playing it. I've had my fair share of server issues, but once you're in....damn! Look forward to playing this for a long time.
The limitations of PSN revealed? The limitations of the Cell revealed? Poor SOCOMpletelyflopped which might otherwise have been a good idea had to be the game to suffer for being developed on an inferior platform. I guess the power of the Cell is best utilized towards simple tasks like platformer games.
Morganfell seems to have crap to say back to everyone's post now so i don't mind responding again on this one. As with all Socom games the start is relatively receptive. People admire what a developer has done to bring the game back one more time. The issue comes in a couple of months when the developers don't listen to the community and the game chatter turns to crap with people complaining about the normal socom stuff, "mics don't work", "game is too laggy", "this game sucks", and the all popular" i shot that guy like 80 f'n times" I believe i have said this many times in previous post and if you are a true So-Crack addict then you would have heard this since Socom: US Navy Seals. I was a socom addict. Started out with the DA clan as [DA] - Brock and then started the T&B Clan with a friend where we were all Drunk named with mine being Drunkdude. Hell my website is still up and running http://www.freewebs.com/dru... The fact is though I loved the game a lot it was everyone talking crap about the game that brought the experience down enough for me to leave it. Ranking systems always sucked (too many rank ups), games lagged, everyone turned off features (grenades, mgl's), glitchers, cheaters, crap talkers, Sony never releasing map packs, sony never patching the game, games lagging out when C4 went off, i mean do i have to list all the crap. In the end SONY did not force or help Zipper make the product better after 5 years of developing that game. Slant Six will be no different. It WAS a good game - but the people who play it never respected it nor did the company who owned it. Its DONE!
This Morganfail character has always been so angry, spiteful, abusive and bitter. Much like another Sony droid whose name I shall not mention here. Honestly, there's no reasoning with people who suffer from such acute depression. Just read all his posts - ever so resentful, ever so indignant, ever so abusive - a sad sad caricature of a Sony fanboy gone way too wrong. I mean even Nasim is a more agreeable character because while he is deluded and many-a-time plain stupid, he does not allow hate to enter the core of his being the way this Morganfail does. If Morganfail says SOCOMpletelyfail is the GOTY and everyone who says otherwise is an infidel, then so be it. You just have to wonder where all the alleged joy that these games are giving him have gone to, 'cos there's hardly any mirth to be detected from any of his posts.
One thing to add about Marcinko - all enlisted and discharged SEALS , Navy have their feelings about him as I do. Depending on how you looked at and analyzed information you are capable of drawing whatever opinion you want. I am not about to enter a pissing contest of trying to say who was a better SEAL. Marcinko is responsible for many things that the SEALS did good as you say they did bad. He served this country and for that should be honored. Everything else at the end could be truth, conspiracy, lies, who knows. You should never sit here and talk poorly about something you yourself would not/have not gotten out there and done. If you have served in the military then congrats on doing service to this country but piss on you for not respecting fellow enlisted men who you should take up for before anyone else. We should all hope that we do as much in our lifetime as this man has done. I myself will support the troops forever - Semper Fi! - Hoorah! Also just a note - His service members thought more of him than they thought of the other gentlemen you mentioned: http://www.navyseals.com/no...
if you are looking for a shooter online look no further.its ONLINE MADNESS!!!!
minus the random freeze issues. the servers have been improved dramaticly since launch. Im impressed the servers are holding A LOT better then previous socom titles. If you played this game in the past you will know what I mean. I barely even notice any lag when its full room with 32 players. Yes during gameplay there is a few flaws that need to be fixed but the game is still a blast, SOCRACK is back! Atleast for me and many other people who are die hard socom fans.
Well this isn't surprising since Sony routinely screws over its devoted fans in one way or another. Not that MS is any better but come on, more SOCOM server issues. This should have been fixed after the Beta.
They DIDNT listen to most of the BETA testers. We told them the game was BROKE and it needed a delay. Did they listen NO. all they had to do was listen to the beta testers vs totally ignoring them to make a release date. They were just afraid to push the date back because it would have run into other high profile games. I just hope Slant 6 is in the R2 beta...watch, listen and learn and someday they will be able to play in the big leagues of game development
