  • Everyone saying that this game was broken and unplayable is wrong. I’ve been playing since the day of its release, and while the first week or two was very rough, it’s been fully playable since, as I play very often with my clan.

    It’s never “too late” to get back into a game. That’s just a load of bull. Go 1.50!

  • how big is the update

  • That is a crazy amount of fixes!

  • okay guys listen up I just bought this game YESTERDAY. i bought it for 40 dollars because it came with that sony mic.(im loving the mic, and if you sycn it up with the ps3 via usb you get a few little special features with the mic so dont pair it threw bluetooth) ok so back on point about soccom, i heard so much stuff about being a bad game but so far its been great ive seen no problems what so ever except lag everyonce in a while, i thought i was going to hate and it just be stuck with the mic but i was wrong if you have a little bit of money and you burned out call of duty and want a new diffrent type shooter this game is it

  • @RyoOhKi666

    $40 for Socom? You paid too much for it. Target is clearing out Socom for $29 with headset.

  • well it dont matter ill be busy with batman then getting into MAG.. ill still play it once in the blue moon but thats about it =/

  • Dag25- I did buy it at target lol its okay tho 10 bucks aint that much for a mic oh well

  • This game seems very polished from when it first launched.

  • I was always thinking about playing this game again. And it looks like this is the perfect time to do so!

    Good job, SS.

  • put a demo out for this

  • Nice Stuff Guys! I am really glad that you guys did listen to some of us people. I am hoping you guys fixed alot of the stuff that I sent to ya. I sent a detailed list on how to perform most of the glitches in this game. But thanks to listing to my bud S_Y_N_1_S_T_3_R.

    And also I would like to give a shout out to “Dave Gibson” for listening.

  • now thats a patch wow

  • So Socom Confrontation is finally coming out of the paid TEN MONTH beta (I was one of the unfortunate idiots to buy this garbage game on release).

    That’s good news, with a patch this big and it looks like really addresses all the problems from the beginning it’ll be time to give this game another try. Lets just hope this patch actually does what it says it does.

    On a side note its a shame the graphics engine wasn’t going through the same tweaks as it often barely looks like a PS3 game. The #1 map for example has shadows so dark its like your in night time when it’s day time out.

  • Now if they put out the 10 dlc packs they owe everyone, I’ll buy this game.

  • Im so glad they finally got this patch ready. They really worked hard on this. REALLY LOOKING FOWARD TO IT!

  • BRING ON OPERATION FLASHPOINT DRAGON RISING 2!!!!!!

  • no offence to anybody that is a mechanic,but these people here are starting to sound like them…fix 1 thing and manage to screw another…we will wait and see how long before a game geek cracks another glitch….

  • There’s going to be a few more thousand people logging on tomorrow just to get a hold of the patch asap. Long overdue on this patch SONY, I don’t know what you guys were thinking or if you stopped funding the game, but Socom is a title that deserves a ton of support. We have the biggest community, we should have the most DLC out of any PS3 title period.

    This game was promised DLC on release day, and 10 months later we got nothing other then a picture of future DLC. Please keep supporting this title, more and more players would buy DLC if you can get it out in a timely matter. We stuck with you this far so please give us some more support and a ton of maps via DLC asap. There’s a good 25K people dying for new maps.

  • Yes!! Can wait for the new factions to come out as well..Wana tryout the new Sniper rifle and Camos..

  • This is being released way too late. Many including myself have all moved on from this game. This is coming from someone who was addicted to s1, s2, and s3

  • ITS NOT GOING TO BE A SMOOTH OP LOOK AT THE LAGGY 16 V 16 WE CANT EVEN PLAY A 10 GAME STREAK WITHOUT REFRESHING THE GAME WE NEED A HOST SPOT SO WE KNOW WHO IT IS

  • GLITCHING HA U FIX A GLITCH YOU OPEN ANOTHER PORTAL FOR SOME CHEATER TO FIND A BETTER SPOT TO KILL US WE WILL SEE JUST FIX THE DARN GAME MOST OF US ARE TIRED OF BEING JERKED AROUND SINCE SOCOM1 TO SOCOM3 WHERE WE USED DEBIT /CREDIT CARDS TO MAKE AN ACCOUNT BUY A MAP PACK THEN GAVE IT AWAY SORT OF LIKE PS2 WHEN WE BOUGHT THE HARD DRIVE THEN YA DISCONTINUE IT FOR FLASH DRIVES HUNDRED AND THREE DOLLARS DOWN THE DRAIN

  • I havent played PS3 SOCOM yet. Hope nobody glitches like the ps2 versions…. ah wth…who am I kidding yes they are gonna glitch. Cant wait to get this game LMAO! SOCOM Forever!

  • Yeah!! now wheres my FISH HOOK??

  • I wonder…..would this have anything to do with why my copy of SOCOM Confrontation won’t download? I purchased it last night (via the PlayStation Store) but it’s stuck at 0% until it quits out due to a “network error”.

    I know this inquiry runs the risk of being way off-topic, but if anyone could give me any advice on how to remedy this issue and thus be able to download the game, I would seriously appreciate it.

  • this patch sux
