No surprises here, Great online infrastructure and no need to let the hardcore fans tear it apart before it even hits the shelves

JDouglasGU3031d ago

agreed, but it's unfortunate we might not get to see what they have planned in that form.

It needs a beta. Don't make the same mistake as Infinity
Ward please. If Naughty Dog needed a beta to perfect the game, so does Zipper.

You are forgetting that Zipper recently released MAG which was extensively beta tested and SOCOM 4 is supposed to be using the same basic multiplayer configuration. If Zipper can pull off 200 players, I'm sure they can pull off a squad based multiplayer.

Last online beta they did (MAG) showed just how bad there game was and killed the sales. So no wonder they are not doing it.

Coramoor_3030d ago

They made plenty of money on MAG in the end I believe

So you think its better for people to buy socom without knowing what they're getting first???

WOW then i guess i'll just stick to the review scores, and if they're anything like MAG, i'm not buying that shit.

XXXCouture3031d ago

they didnt make confrontation

the-show-stopper3030d ago

redeem the franchise name not thier name

Spenok3030d ago

Nope, they didnt make confrontation. And how is it your so sure it will have a beta? Zipper JUST said dont expect anything so your not disapointed. Im not saying there wont be as Zipper themselves didnt say they would or would not have a beta. I just dont understand how you know there will be a beta when Zipper says dont expect anything.
