Socom Confrontation Beta for PS3

Anyone else in the beta?

I pre-ordered my game at EB Games and got the beta codes. Friday I got the email with instructions on how to D/L the game. Well, it was a mad house. I'm sure their servers were extended as it was difficult to get connect. Once in the game, there was lag and other misc quirks.

Its the beta so I'm not going to judge to harshly, but the load times sucked. I hope that gets sorted out before the release.

If anyone else is in the beta, chime in. I'd like to get in a game and get some practice time in.

Da Bears!

The socom series is the only reason that the ida of buying a ps3 interests me. I used to love playing it on my old ps2. excellent game series




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I agree Tony, I have owned all previous copies. I love the series so I hope things get sorted by the time the full game is released. I have always like the way the you can setup clans and follow friends into games.

I forgot to mention, the character customization is awesome. You can create a custom character and choose the look (facial hair, hat, color face camo, amount of body armor, color camo) and of course the type of weapon. All this is stored so you can select your character quickly and get into a match.

Da Bears!

I had zero issues, maybe you guys were picking bad rooms, (other player issues)

I LOVE how they integrated sixaxis usage.

Go up to a wall, and tilt your controller and look at what your player does around the corner

awesome usage.

I haven't played it in a while, but did like the sixaxis motion on it once I got used to it. Last time I played it was when the software update came out. I d/l it and it wiped out all my customizations. It was annoying to go through it all and set it back up.

I still find the game play slow. I don't think I'm going to buy this game.

That's how I felt when I was playing the beta. I was thinking, I could be causing havoc in COD4 right now, instead of waiting for this thing to load!
I like the matchmaking in Socom where you can choose a map better than COD4s random matchmaking but that's all.

Based on that I'll probably skip and pick up COD5 instead next week.

Not sure if you guys are keeping up with this thread, but I "was" a big fan of the Playstation SOCOM series of games.

SOCOM Confrontation is the WORST game I have ever played - enough said; I just got it for christmas. Anyone who wants to borrow it, let me know. You can have your own opinion it will be sitting in my cabinet until I decide to sell it.

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

true.. the fact that the game is only for online play shoulda told the guys at Sony that they gotta beef up the servers.. i didn't get the BETA, but when it came out, it was like 2-3 good nites b4 i can even get into a room.. i like SOCom, tho, however, i find myself on COD4 or [email protected] mostly.. p.s. didya know u can get an extra weapon (mercs and seals) when u create a clan?? but yea, havent touched it since COD came out..

Sad to hear. Socom II was the bomb on PS2 and the source of my on-line gaming addiction.

Yup, I was a big fan of the previous version. The beta was disappointing. I got the game and that was bad too. I kept the headset and sold the game. IT was buggy even after the beta, but I hear it got better. Sony dropped the ball...it was bad news when Slant 6 was put in charge of it instead of Zipper.

I play COD4 and COD:WAW. More COD4 since I kinda got tired of the WWII weapons.
