SOFs Interview with the Hip-Hop Gamer (HipHopGamer1):
H-Hour: World's Elite has formally been accepted by SONY for development on the PS4.
This game is the true successor to SOCOM 1 and 2 on the PS2, and it's long overdue SONY gets it's hands on a great shooter with modern graphics but gameplay more similar to the first 2 SOCOM games which had millions of payers in one of if not the best community of all time.

All the naysayers said it wouldn't happen... well, it's on it's way!!! Up to this point all progress had been made on PC only although those in the community knew it would be coming to PS4.
This game will be released on PC and PS4. SOFs Studios recently reported into E3 and things are really looking up.
The Proof of concept was recently completed, and it was also confirmed that the engine the games was built on UE3 will be upgraded to UE4. Did I mention 1080p and 60fps? ;)
Here is more information regarding the game and the proof of concept which although it wont be released to play by the public, high level backers including myself will get some hands on eventually. This title is slated to release in 2015 for BOTH PC and PS4. The proof of concept is what is being pitched for potential investors... what does it mean that SONY welcomed the game to its ranks? We dont know yet, but I have a good feeling about things, and hope to hear abut funding soon.
Remember that the proof of concept was built on a small budget using the UE3 engine and the full game will have much higher production values and be on UE4. Consider what is seen placeholder or Alpha as far as graphics and animations are concerned. It was also confirmed that bullet trails are only placeholder as well.
So, even though this is an indie title. The SOFs team includes the SOCOM creative director David Sears, and Russ Phillips,creator of all time favorite maps from the SOCOM franchise.
Is anybody else getting excited about this game now? Will you be getting it for PC or PS4?
Get hyped :)
