Reception:

SOCOM: Confrontation received mixed reviews at its North American launch as critics cited technical issues, lag, missing features that were advertised, and only seven maps. A major bug present at the game's release caused many player's systems to crash while either looking for a match or at other various points during gameplay. However most of the issues were addressed by series of game updates.

Go check out the US forums, there's a code sharing thread where quite a few people are sharing codes. There was a guy earlier who was offering a few codes and I got one. I registered it and it worked, now I'm at least secured a spot. Now we just need to see what they come up with for the European Beta, bit too late to start with codes when it's starting at the same time as the US Beta.

I'm praying they just do a MGO with us and go **** it! give them all the beta :p

Well, there has been some hefty discussion about that on the European forums.

Slate Six have stated both Betas will be code based, but we'll see - Should have more information Monday. Here's the Beta Code thread from the US forums;

http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstatio...ing&page=63

You can sign up for the 'queue', but I'd keep a close eye on the thread since most people seem to give the keys away on "Who messages me first" basis. A few pages back and there's a few guys stating they had some keys. Just be careful, my Private Message box isn't working on the forums, so tell them to send it to your Email instead.

I'm geeking out knowing that SOCOM is coming. Most of my clan from 1 & 2 is still around and we're all still in contact. Finally something is coming along that will get me off of Call of Duty! I have to admit, the videos I've seen for this game look terrible, it's not a pretty game at all. I'm still pumped though, I know it'll be fun. I just hope there are fewer BS moments this time around. I hate unloading into a guy's back only to have him turn around and shoot me in the face.

I hope the game has an option to scale the image like MSG4 and Pixel Junk does. I actually wish the system would have that setting.

A bit of solid information on the upcoming EU Beta;

Okay, I'll try all this again...

Some of you are right in that this will be a multiplayer demo and not a traditional "Public Beta". It will be Beta level code (although near-final) but we won't explicitly be taking feedback on the game itself; this is more of a PR initiative and a last chance for us to test the server infrastructure on a real-world scale.

The number of codes available runs into the tens of thousands. All registered Beta trialists should get an email containing one, as should all SOCOM HQ forum members for most of the languages. As far as I'm *currently* aware, only the Nordic territories will have a pre-order scheme, but I don't know any more details about it and I don't know who it will be with, so please don't ask me any more questions on that! In Nordic territories the chosen retailer will most likely mail-shot people using SCEE's help (and database presumably), so if you're a SOCOM fan there then you should be getting an email.

As for everyone else who doesn't fall under a category above, emails will be targetted at people who have listed SOCOM as a favourite game of theirs when filling in surveys, etc. or who have claimed themselves as fans of this genre of game. It'll all work in pretty much the same way as other email communications from SCEE, where a mail turns up in your inbox informing you of a new download or release on the PSN store.

So, as I have said before you needn't worry about getting access to the code, our Marketing group should have all bases covered and emails should be sent out on Monday 1st, which will coincide with the code going live on the PSN store (barring any unforseen technical problems before then, of course).

Regards,

Shijima.

I never could figure out why they named some of the weapons wrong. I figured it was a translation issue or something in the originals, but this is the fourth console socom and the names are still wrong. What's up with that?

Legal issues, some weapon manufactures doesn't want their weapon names in the game or could be they asked too much money for it.

Quite a few games suffer from this, most just refuse to put the weapons in the game, while others just change the name - But they can only do that with the name, they are still allowed to put the design in the game and the sounds without running into any legal issues, as far as I know.

I know that's a common issue with autos in games, like the burnout and gta series, never heard of it being an issue with weapons though. Seems like a pretty weak work around though, calling a P90 an F90 and it looks identical.

Isn't that a good work around, if they keep the name similar so people relate? :blink:

I mean if they can't name it P90, what should they name it? MachineGun1? :laugh:

Exactly, I think it's a decent work around.

Doesen't apply well to cars though ;) Parrari, Forsche, Kamborghini

Short SOCOM Public Beta Delay

Posted by Seth Luisi

Hi folks,

Well, I've got some good and not so good news. The good news is that we are still on track to delivering a kick-ass experience come October. The bad news is that because we are working so hard to ensure the final product is fantastic, we've decided to push back the Public Beta date just a few days in order to bump up the experience even more. So, the new launch date for the Public Beta is now Friday, September 5th (QORE members will start the following Friday, September 12).

The other good news is that we are not cutting down the length of the Public Beta one bit. It will still run for a full month - from 9/5 to 10/5 - so you and your clanmates can still practice as long as you want and then be ready to go for the full game later in October.

Myself, my team and Slant Six are burning the midnight oil to ensure this game is the best it can possibly be for you guys. We completely understand it’s hard to wait when you haven't had a chance to play it yet but, rest assured, the wait will be worth it. If you haven't done it already, you can pre-order the game from GameStop? in the US to get into the Public Beta (EB Games™ for our brethren to the North). Make sure to bring along 2 extra friends once you register and get the email promo code from us; that code will let them in too. You're not going to get another Public Beta out there that will give you and your squad-mates so much access.

Best,

Seth
