i want this game now sony
Oops, I accidentally disagreed sorry. After playing RE5 and MAG with the Move and navigation controller I can't wait to try more TPS and FPS games with Move. Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4 are both looking amazing. With Move I get more replayability with games. I can play through the campaign once with the Move and once with the Dualshock 3 and whichever I prefer more I will use online.
It just never ends.
Socom has been around for a long time kid, now go do your homework.
Lol... Fail. MW2 is a FPS. This is a TPS. You're starting off on a pretty bad foot, comparing the two. Did you even watch the video?
You must be an 8 year old for not knowing that SOCOM came before MWF. Heck SOCOM came before COD.
i wouldnt call it a rip off, socom has been around for a long time and their formula hasn't really changed.
hey man just a lil fyi. socom came out long before cod4 did, so dont give yourself the satifaction of another company ripping off one of the worst shooters ever. socom pioneered multiplayer on the ps. and its coming back again, but i dont think theres any more room in here for your head and two bubbles, have fun wit ur one bubble. and btw socom is a strategic squad based tps, where in mw2 do you get that?
YOU FUCKING MORON! If anything most modern shooters copied SOCOM! Socom 1 and 2 were two of the world's best shooters ever.
i cant wait to play, i know confrontation had flaws but i loved it, this one is gonna be awesome... hopefully
confrontation is a pos and not even a real socom hence why the real developers didnt make it[zipper]
Hopefully the community aren't such dicks this time around. Seriously, go play in a match of Confrontation where most people have headsets: a lot of the time, when you first enter the game, you immediately start getting votes to be kicked out for no reason, and other times, if you get kicked out if you just aren't that good. I don't think they will be as prevalent and as bad when the game first launches, which is why I'm getting the game day one, so I can avoid the elitist a$$holes that will later on flood the game.
I think that is one of their best features, getting in another account bring it your mates killing them and them voting is one of the best thing.
and we dont just kick you out for the hell of it . usually because new players dont have a clue what they are doing and tend to drag the stats of the clan down and leave them undermanned. when clans are looking for new members they usually dont kick. try playing spawn respawn to get yourself up to a good standard and believe me a clan will come looking for you too join. socom is a highly competitive game. oh and that mike thing is bullshit but it sure helps to have 1 and use it.
yup that community is full of assholes unfortunately
People also vote as a way to say look out when they can't talk to you (enemy is close or they are dead). So if you get only one vote don't be worried. That said, yes SOCOM is filled with this kind of people, but that's an online only highly competitive squad based game, so if you don't have a clue and ignore everyone's advices, no one will be inclined to help you out too. You could argue you bought the game and you play it like f*ing Rambo if you want, but them people will argue they bought theirs too and they want you to do it anywhere else... Majority wins. Be cool, listen to what people say, try teamwork and text message people if you have anything to say (or even better, buy an headset, it's totally worth if you want to play it right) and 90% of the people won't kick you out anyway. Unless it's a language/region problem, for example I'm brazillian and mostly play on Brasil server, we kick anyone that don't at least speaks portuguse as soon as we can.
Really, I've been playing MAG since day one and a lot of MAG regulars in my time slot are ginormous tools, too. Zipper seems good at designing team/tactical military games that really attract a loyal cult following and a lot of these guys take themselves way too seriously. There are some really great/nice dudes too but the a-holes can leave you feeling bitter about everyone sometimes.
What advice? All they say to me is how much I f*cking suck and then tell everybody to kick me out of the game. About a week or two ago, I thought to myself, hey, it would be fun to pop in Socom for a quick match or two, seeing as how I had a lot of fun playing the beta in private matches with my friends. So I pop it in, wait like 5 minutes on matchmaking before I give up and go to the custom servers and just join one that isn't full. As I first spawn, I choose a sniper rifle and run into a room where I get f*cked up pretty fast. Within 5 seconds, I got like 4 or 5 votes to be kicked, so I just went ahead and left. I'm never putting Confrontation in my ps3 again. It's too bad that the game is now full of pathetic douchebags who have forgotten what games are for: to have fun. You could argue that being so competitive is fun to them, but I'd say that's bullsh*t at how pissed off they get at the most trivial of issues. They take the game way too damn seriously .
looks like garbage!!
dude that's your reflection.
Love to know what makes it look like garbage to you. I have never purchased a SOCOM game yet but this one has me excited.
looks like garbage? is that what the hooker said when you wiped it out? anyways, get off the meth bro, the game looks good, from what ive seen so far id give it a 8.5 or 9 for graphics
Looks like MAG in third person, actually. No surprise. I think people ragged on MAG for GFX unfairly. I always felt the look was just fine and never really detracted from the game play. It wasn't cutting edge like MW2 or KZ2 but it was definitely good enough for current gen hardware and didn't get in the way.
meh ai is retarded
stop commenting while looking at yourself in the mirror.
Why all the disagrees?
oh I thought he said ai like He was talking like a retard saying "I" and calling himself a retard.
he probably got E64 or E82,playing pc ports is no fun i guess.
I love what they have implemented in MAG and this looks even more refined. It's now officially a day one. i cant wait!!!
Wow. The fanboys are really frightened of this game. Look at all the troll comments.
its just one with multi-accounts
The kids these days don't seam to respect a game which has earned that over the years ... you can just LOL
Footage looks pretty great!
wow this makes me sad to see what Socom has become, yes ill buy it and play it but ffs bring back socom 1&2 in HD and online multiplayer
You're sad that SOCOM looks so good relative to other shooters, unlike last gen? We don't know anything about MP, so I can't think of anything else you could be sad about.
Played this in Seattle at a blog event. Sold me on Move when it comes to shooters. Now I just have to get my hands on one lol.
Wow, they've polished the game since last time I saw it...... Look at the trees. o.o 4:05 "3D Enabled" :| Cool beans.
hopefully the run and gun style the player is achieving will be downplayed a bit in favor of more strategic placement of com. companions. Either way however its a Day 1 for me. Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to make me a sandwich :D
Yeah day one for me!! Also pb&j for me...
It's on. The competition between this and Specops:the line for most generic special ops game ever. They both have special already incorporated into the name so it's anyone's race.Stay tuned;)
wow its pathetic how all you sony fanboys suddenly love waggle, now that its on ps3. anyways i'm excited for this game
Most never liked waggle and still don't. With move waggle doesn't work, u have to be precise with your movements. Hence why a lot of people like the move. Either way, I've always liked the wii, and now I love the move. Socom4=Day1
Wow. The graphics and gameplay already looks MUCH more fluid and polished than the previous Socom. If I'm not mistaken this new socom is being handled by Zipper and the last one was done by Slant Six. I enjoyed Socom: Confrontation when I rented it, but it was so dang buggy I never bought it. I wasn't very excited for this title until I just watched this footage. Okay. You win Zipper. I'm excited!!
Belive it or not, Socom 4 will be the most played PS3 exclusive game online when it hits. The Socom series is a beast. (i said PS3 exclusive, obviously more people play COD)
I don't know, I don't think you can count out Resistance 3 or Killzone 3 just yet.
Can't wait to play this game. The godfather of tactical shooter is coming back.
The last socom cured me from ever wanting to play socom again ill stick with ghost recon i know its a different dev but the damage was done i wont fall for that shit again.
I'm going to be playing this game HARDCORE with Move.
Looks like the disagree fairy is out in full force again.
It looks really nice, hopefully i am not tired of war games by then. I just beat MOH today, and the realism was topnotch. But, this looks better. I just hope the controls are just as good.
Love you SOCRACK. Can't wait to get my fix next year.
the 360 fanboys are trolling hard cause they aint got shit to play till gears3. looks like they're gonna be talking SALES and KINECTIMALS for a very long time AHAHAHAHAH!
Anyone remember playing the SP in SOCOM 1 and 3? It wasn't good, it didn't have any redeeming qualities whatsoever. I'm not saying SOCOM 4 will be bad, I'm just not that forgetful of Zippers past attempts at a Singleplayer. That or the boatload of Bugs in SOCOM 1 & 2 and the boring maps of SOCOM 3. I don't like being the turd in the punch bowl guys, but wait until it's here before we start saying it's going to be close to KZ3 Singleplayer wise. @24 "they"? Don't be so divisive. With that kind of language you would almost think you've segregated yourself off into some kind of "camp". The consoles under our televisions are really worth getting bent out of shape over, or spouting petty comments.
regenerating health, and airstrikes...hope those aren't around for online.
Hope its got no cheaters like socom 2 and the assery of socom constipation But things are looking good!
Still worrying that there is little to NO multiplayer info at all, for a game that relies heavily on the multiplayer community they should be releasing more info.
Socom was about stealth, and commanding your teammates to complete the mission with the least amount of noise, and injury. This is RANBO leads a squad into the open and charges through 100 waves of troops with regenerating health. Socom died after 1 and 2. I miss having my mic and using it in single player to order my AI teammates around. Bravo > Move To > Charlie Alpha > Suppress > Enemy Good Times...the PS2 had actually innovative games. Now everything plays the fucking same.
