A second SOCOM to come from original developers


Reaction to the newly unveiled SOCOM Confrontation was mixed at best. The multiplayer-only title is being developed by Slant Six Games (also responsible for the new PSP title SOCOM: Tactical Strike). While the prospects of playing on a 32-player online battlefield is exciting enough, many commented on the barren, uninspired look of the game.

Worry not -- there's yet another SOCOM game in the works from the series' original creators. Zipper is starting work on its own SOCOM title, but as 1UP points out, it's going to be a long way off -- most likely late next year. Unlike Confrontation, which will launch this November, Zipper's own title will feature a single-player campaign in addition to the requisite multiplayer modes. While we hope Confrontation turns out to be a worthy addition to the SOCOM franchise, we're somewhat relieved to know that a true sequel is still in the works.

2. Confrontation as I understand, will be a downloadable title. I'm sure framerates, animations, and graphics will be tightened up a bit, but it's not likely going to be a powerhouse title. It's multiplayer only, and it's likely that it's going to be going the route of fair visuals, but high framerates.

3. What was Zipper doing all this time? I have been a socom player since the first socom game came out. I dont want Slant six making this game. Socom is the ONLY reason I bought a ps3 was to play socom. Not a add on PSN title. Im done with sony, I should have got the 360 like everyone else I know.

4. Forgot some sorry:
God of War III
LittleBigPlanet
SingStar: Next Gen
Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom(wasn't very good but anyways)
Wipeout 6
SOCOM
Ridge Racer 7

Posted at 5:26PM on May 19th 2007 by massive_98

5. I just felt like making a list. Socom sounds like a pretty fun game. Getting tired of online only games. I mean I love online(especially when its free) but I like playing single player too.

It lets me try out a game so I don't make a fool of myself during online.

Posted at 5:30PM on May 19th 2007 by massive_98

6. Yeah, those are all good exclusives. But, the fact is that out of all three next gen consoles we have the least coming. I think this confontation socom should just be canceled because it will not be worthy enough to be in the socom family. This game was made just to buy zipper more time..

Posted at 5:32PM on May 19th 2007 by Mike

7. massive_98 what are you doing you forgot the 2 BIGGEST exclusives, FF13 and FF VS 13!

Anyway whilst not graphically spectacular i've heard socom games are good, so i might pick this up when the time comes.

Posted at 5:37PM on May 19th 2007 by Naaiif

8. So basically it's SOCOM: Counter Strike edition.

Posted at 5:41PM on May 19th 2007 by Moe

9. I don't play Final Fantasy. Too me its just like Pokemon with people


But Pokemon is better.

Posted at 6:04PM on May 19th 2007 by massive_98

10. ok no offense, but you forgot a lot of exclusives. i might double post some of them on accident.

ninja gaiden sigma
jak and daxter: the lost frontier
white knight story
crytek project
singstar
brave arms
chain limit
second season 01
rumored: resistance 2 (you know it will happend), motormstorm 2.
Monster Hunter 3 (huge japanese title)
The Getaway (will be better than GTA4 MARK MY WORDS!)

Posted at 6:05PM on May 19th 2007 by stockstar1138

11. Is Socom more a team effort sort of game? Or is it like Resistance where people blow you up even if your on the same fucking team.

Posted at 6:07PM on May 19th 2007 by massive_98

12. "The Getaway (will be better than GTA4 MARK MY WORDS!)"

I'll stick with GTA:IV...for now.

Is The Getaway a sandbox game?
(sorry for all the questions folks. not used to Sony franchises)

Posted at 6:09PM on May 19th 2007 by massive_98

13. yes its sandbox, but isn't hindered by the DVD9, look at the previews of both games, The Getaway looks 10x better in my opinion.

Posted at 6:12PM on May 19th 2007 by stockstar1138

14. Sandbox games are more suited to the PS3 as shooters are suited to the 360. Why don't devs notice this?

I am still mad that EA choose to make MERCS:2 multiplatform.

That game could have been absolutly awesome.

Posted at 7:13PM on May 19th 2007 by massive_98

15. Yeh getaway will be better graphically, probably miles better, doesn't mean it's going to be a better game though does it.

Posted at 8:49PM on May 19th 2007 by Naaiif

16. ooh yah, Gangs Of London on PSP had everything going for it, but is unplayable (controls, gameplay)

20. 43 exclusives coming out in the next 2 or so years.

Thats awesome. Alot of those are quality games. Hopefully thats enough to convince people to buy a PS3.

Also all those shity downloadable titles "could" be added but nope. Except for calling all cars so that makes 44.

YAY!
