The official SOCOM site has revealed that the 1.30 update has been approved and should have gone live at around 10am this morning. The update fixes over 100 issues and promises that "framerate/lag hitches fixed and many gameplay issues resolved."
Give up this game has written FLOP all over it and what the F*ck 100 issues my god.
I agree with you somewhat NO. 100 issues is too many to have in a game and they should just have waited to release the game till it was actually finished.
100 issues, geez. But with this patch (just played it online) SOCOM feels like a whole new game, it's so fcking good and addicting. I'm very surprised that this game turned out to be so good despite all of those reviews (which only downscored the game because of server issues). But in all honesty... why the hell did they release it with so many bugs I wonder.
Uh..no, the only flop here is yourself, Socom is a great game.
i told myself that i wouldnt get it until they fixed it. so to anyone that has it, is it safe for me to pick this up yet?
You can have my copy for $20. Barely used. I'm keeping the mic, though.
this patch has made it a game, no longer a beta, everything about it is much much more solid, i have been playing for about 2 hours now with now issues, good update, now lets see some dlc!
i got it for xmas and aside from a few lagging issues here and there, it's been a solid experience. my favorite game currently. can't wait to get the patch when i get home and check out the improvements! you should definitely pick it up if you haven't already.
bubbles for you guys. thanks for the info i will be getting this today then.
you will have more fun playing socom1,2,3 get warhawk , mgs4 fu$k it get lost planet(lol) you will have more fun with those games some bugs are still in the game its like they didn't fix sh!t added a weak a$$ party system which is a joke and trophies
Warhawk and MGO are n00b city compared to Socom Con.
Over 100? Jesus H Christ. What a piece of trash.
dude, you should attleast appreciate the hard work these guys have done... Locating and Fixing 100+ issues is quite hard when developing a game... so stop your idioticy and go on and play games
Joey has a point. Don't release it if it is riddled with problems. Fix the problems then release the game. I have had socom from release but gave up on it since it has so many problems. THe same can be said of Gear 2.
dachiefsman - true that ... but he shouldn't post stupid comments... the truth is that they underestimated the Release date and the time they got. Many developers do, even Guerrilla Games. But the fact that they fixed over 100+ issues is still remarkable. Kudos for fixing and not abbandoning. (Epic i'm lookin at you)
when they mentioned over 100 issues it doesn't literally mean there was 100 things wrong in the game...other than a few laggy sessions I haven't really experienced any-other problems with the game...
@Cwalat Epic has announced a fix, and it is coming soon. @Danja 50 percent of the time it works well. Regardless if it makes the games better, I am happy.
waits patiently for Killzone 2
im so disappointed i had high hopes but its a let down back 2 socom3
We won't miss you.
Chase, what is wrong with you? Socom 3 was the biggest piece of trash on the PS2. This game is a million times better.
no it isn't,just because it wasn't to your liking don't mean it is trash. i still play that game and it's very good,still surpasses a lot of shooters on next gen systems.
Socom 2>>>>>>>& gt;>>>>>>> >>>>>>>> ;>>>>>>>&g t;>>>>>>>& gt;>>>>>>> >>>>>>>> ;>>>>>>>&g t;>>>>>>>& gt;>>>>>>> >>>>>>>> ;>>>>>>>&g t;>>>>>>>& gt;>>>>>>> >>>>>>>> ;>>>>>>>&g t;>>>>Socom 3
socom is great all they need now is trophies Ps xbots are too much of a noob to play socom. they will stick to multi platform games like cod that are really for everyone. not hardcore
That is what this patch did... add trophies. Get ready to sign your life and gaming time over to socom if you want them!
You should buy it, freaking fantastic game. One of my favorite games of the year in fact.
This a great Socom. It's the only game I play now. It is a very very realistic game.
+ Bubbles This game is the best online tactical shooter. Sure, when Killzone 2 comes out it will be great, but I guarantee you that most Socom players will get bored and come back to Socom after about 3 months. It has always been that way.
I have been playing it since day 2 and granted the first few days were rough while they were ironing out the backend servers. After that though the game has worked very well with minimal lag. Have only been disconnected twice and one lockup. It is a fun game with reall good controls as well.
Socom owns you.
People are saying that the temporary freezup when people join late, is still there. That was one of the two things they needed to fix for me to start playing again.
Before this patch (Which I havent tried) I would get random 1 sec freezes... Is this because people are joining/leaving?
That's what everyone keeps saying. This bug was too much for me, as it happens just as I'm shooting someone at the back of the head. When the game unfreezes, that person has already turned around and shot me a bunch of times. I stopped playing when it happend three time in a single game.
This has been the MAIN reason I dont play the game.
so what ur sayin is that u freeze but the other guy does not?????? because if he turned and shoot u then he must not be freezing right
I guess so. Because if i'm in the middle of a firefight, after the screen unfreezes, all the people around me are in different positions. But the problem seems to affect most people, read the official boards, it's the number one complaint. Threads from this morning indicate that this problem is still there, but I'll try it myself later anyway.
thats a strange problem i cant say i have or have not encounter this because i don't look to see if anyones joining the game but ill be sure to check it out later thanks
Trophies and Achievments are retarded. I play games to have fun. Now if the update only adds that then that just shows you how retarded Slant six really is. There are way too many issues in the game to be adding insignificant updates.
I have this game and it gets no playtime on my PS3. It FAILED/FLOP big time.
highly doubt it. If you hated your PS3 so much. You would of sold it. Socom is a really good game. The only people that don't know that. Are huge fanboys.
So let me get this straight...Just because I hate S.O.C.O.M then I'm a huge fanboy. Im also not a HALO fan...Where does that put me?
You enjoy both consoles which means you are in the very small minority on this site. I'm there with you though.
Man this file is huge, 526MB.
The Socom series always had problems. It's too bad most people traded it in by now.
?? no cares that you no longer have the game or that you think many others dont as well.
The servers are full every night. It's really safe to say that all the posers traded it in. Most peopl pick up Socom and expect it to be easy to pick up and run around killing like COD4. This a very tactful and realistic shooter that you have to use teamwork in YOU HAVE TO.
Can you tell me how to use teamwork to eliminate lag, freezing and that "raised-hand-over-gun&quo t; glitch?
I would like to say I'm not a poser. I've had the game since day 1. Although I have played maybe a total of 1 hour :) Hopefully this patch makes it playable.
Lots of people to play with. Its a very underrated game.
Does anyone have a full list of patch notes?
I dont think they have released it yet.
lol dont worry about whiners they underestimate socom just because they got 100 kills in cod4 they think they have skills when they try to play socom the got gunbang they blame it on technical difficulty im sorry to inform you even if you went back now you are still and always will be a noobs its just aren't for u
Today the game reached gold status :lol: The beta test is over now.
Come on! It fixes over 100 issues? No wonder this games sucks a fat one.
Look, over 90% of "100 issues" are just tiny technical things that a vast majority of gamers didn't even know existed. You all are trying to make it seem like every step you take in the game is a glitch or problem. 100s of thousands of gamers are playing this game, in NA alone, on a consistent basis while you all just stand looking for some kind of exclusive to enjoy outside of Geow. When you have people soaking up over 100hrs easy on this game (a shooter) that should tell you how incredible this game is. I don't see ONE downloadable full game on any other console that comes close to this game in terms of activity or sales. If you do, please mention them.
Im not quiet about my love for Socom. It is the most underrated game and deserves more praise. The gameplay just sticks. No matter what game comes out, most people end up coming back to Socom. I promise the same thing will happen with KZ2.
Its not out in UK yet, so I don't know whether to pick it up, though not because of the server issues, I'm worried it'll be too complicated and I won't be able to catch up with the SOCOM vets and I'll just get my a$$ handed to me.
Should I get this game? So far I've been unimpressed from watching gameplay vids. 3rd person viewpoints just don't feel realistic to me, seeing the whole person and everything around corners... COD4 seems more realistic on the Hardcore modes, with no HUD, no radar, teamkills, and real bullet damage, not to mention looking a lot better.
1st person are far from realistic I say this because you have no sense of anything liek in real life you have no perfrial vision you cant sense sound eff. or sense distances. I say all this becaus epeople complain about 3rd person and seeing around corners but think about it in real life you have you senses that make up for it by telling by steps or sense that someone is coming and how close they are you can hear smell all this which is make more sense to me for realism 1st take away anything other then right in front of you which is no where near real life unless you were deaf and blind. I hope you guys understand what I mean when I say that 1st person are so far away from realistic becasue you never just look straight. You can hear how far someone is you can feel them moving thru the ground and so on so if you want realism this makes sense to me 1st person although I love them are a lot farther from real and to me 1st person shooters are so fricken easy its sad. I can run a constant 6okills in Deathmatch on most fps games socom much harder.
I can't find a decent game via matchmaking..
Grrrr, the thing that pisses me off is that freaking freeze go situation, if someone runs up on you and your frozen for .1 second then your screwed, I dont understand why they didnt fix this problem in this patch.
The f#$kin patch finally came out!!! im downloading it right now. Although the download takes a while, i f*$kin dont care! I cant wait!!! Finally!!!
Um! Are there new maps available soon? If anyone from SlanSix is reading this please add the guns requested from people, and update the avitars' movements. I mean I can look through a scope of a 4 pound rifle and hold my aimed target to the dot for a while standing up. Mr. Freeze also needs to go away, Batman can't kill right. The newest patch in January, I'm thinking wasn't included for the freeze problems. I would love to request, by the way, a jungle map with nothing more than terrain with no trash like broken tanks or railroads and all that crap,just trees and bushes and rivers and ponds with some gators and a mountaintop where people actually don't have to glitch, cause that's just a pain in the rear bullet hole. Tree houses I don't care, but let us climb the damm trees too, seals have more characteristics than just laying on the floor waitting for a package. Guilly Suits, I'm still waitting. For the birds please finally put in the eagles, IT IS THE SEALS INSIGNIA, and a stealthy characteristic even on flight so it'd be hard to shoot would go nice with it. It'd would also be nice too if a channel was made simply for the Large maps for all regions of the world to ponder in. I hate having to go to a room that's just gonna kick me out and ristrict my weaponry, just because THEY CAN'T HANDLE THE POWER! I'm talking a no kick out really stupid burn my system to death no time limit room till the sun on eveyone's LCD burns out. If possible, all team pickings with load out page, meaning you can switch whenever you want on the weapons load out page if some idiot decides to team kill. Common man we love this game, make us love it more, please. And for anyone who thinks this is too long, please read the title for my comment.
