PS3

Gamer's Day also included some new games, and one of the bigger ones were SOCOM: Confrontation. The game will be multiplayer only, with a release in late 2007.

Funny how so few war games use the middle east as a background, even though it's has been a hotspot for war, terrorism and conflict for five decades now. At least this game does.

Interesting. A new socom game. Visually it doesn't look that hot too me - rather uninspired I must say. Character models are rather weak and the environment also, except for the last two images which show some really nice lighting. Maybe theres still hope? The tech atleast seems to be present - Now if only the artdirection would follow suit this could very possible be one stellar looking game...

Not that incredible looking, but if you compare it to the last Socom for PS2, I think you'll understand why Socom fans will be excited.

This is not the one developed by Zipper Interactive, they are working on the real next-gen SOCOM.

This is a 'filler SOCOM' if you will (like how CoD3 was a 'filler CoD') made by the guys who made the crappy PSP version.
That's why it looks like aPSP game lol :P
(no but seriously it does look quite bad from these shots).

I expect this to be available via PSN only with a budget price.

Really?
I was excited to hear about a new Socom, but I want a full-out game, not a filler...
I guess this could be good if the price isn't too. Hopefully we'll atleast see some hints of what they plan to do with the series.

Modern Combat games are even MORE generic than WW II games imo. At least with WW II games you get locations and chrs from all over the world and a real sense of time and place. Meh.

IGN suggested that this game will only be online, similar to Warhawk. I agree with antena, I think (hope) Zipper Interactive will be making Socom 4 with offline mode (if IGN is correct).

Actually antena this is being made by Slant Six Games which is an offshoot of Bend Studios. They made the engine for Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror on PSP. I'm thinking you got that confused with the PSP SOCOM games. Dark Mirror was a beautiful game and worked very well. One of the best PSP games to date actually (Cant wait for Logan's Shadow which was shown at Gamer's Day too). I cant wait to see what these guys can do on PS3 hardware after seeing what they've done on PSP. Note that this engine being shown for Confrontation is only 5 months in. The whole game will be done in a year if it stays on schedule. Calling all Cars took over a year to give you a frame of reference.

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus massive downgrades coming from the staples achieved w/ the Halo 3 sandbox/physics, with Dice/BField it should never be a trade-off, ony thing they should be trading its engine if it isnt up 3 the job (3 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus Halo keeps being this Sonic title bait & switch "will their next title be able to Look up par with its current gen counterparts"? Never. Even Halo 4 who was pretty good on Campaign suffered from (3 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus tech? I dunno, go get some insight of Activision (the good input, not the misogyny), all they COD devs make evident generation leaps tech-wise. Do they keep being the same core IP? I think so. (3 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus so Halo must be thet bottomb of the barrel FPS to keep its identity. Add some negligible subsurface scattering reflections or some other tech only possible now and call it the day copy/pasting the ol (3 Days ago)

  • b0vril

    b0vril yea but, would it be halo then? (3 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus engines. I mean, If you can have a PS3 Ratchet & Clanck that looks like a vaseline ps3 game, and a PS5 Ratchet&Clack that looks like a goddamn next-gen game, why can't Halo Evolve - Ugly FPS Seal™ (4 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus Halo Infinite sure is one ugly damn game. Pretty obvious nothing is going to massible change if the Ip doesn't die and start from the ground up with another publisher/dev that doesn't retread the ol (4 Days ago)
