@IRoxxorUrSoxxor How so? It actually seemed pretty coherent to me, misspellings aside. I don't think that my comment was the smartest thing ever, but if your going to call it stupid...well, you should give your reasons for clarities sake. And also, apparently buffoon is a grave insult as Gamespot moderated me for it. A hard one to handle, I know, but sometimes people just gotta use those horrible words. If you've been called one, and are reeling from the grave impact of being called one...I understand your pain, I just got called stupid.
Specially marked copies of military shooter come with access to multiplayer test of forthcoming sci-fi shooter.
On April 19, Sony will release SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs exclusively for the PlayStation 3, and the third-person, PlayStation Move-supporting game is already on many military shooter fans' shopping lists. However, to sweeten the pot, Sony is adding an incentive to potential purchasers: access to the multiplayer beta of Resistance 3.
According to the PlayStation Blog, codes for the beta will come in specially marked copies of SOCOM 4, available at participating retailers. They will also come with every unit of the $150 Full Deployment Edition of the game, which includes the game itself, a PlayStation Move motion controller, a PlayStation Move navigation controller, a PlayStation Eye camera, and a PlayStation Move sharpshooter accessory. No start date for the beta has been announced.
Developed by Zipper Interactive, which created the series back in 2002, SOCOM 4 is set in Southeast Asia, in the pirate-plagued straits of Malacca. Players will take control of Cullen Gray, leader of a five-man squad of special forces operatives tasked with battling a revolutionary group in the Indonesian jungle. The game's multiplayer component will support up to 32 players as well as a five-person co-op mode. GameSpot's latest preview has more details.
Due out on September 6, Resistance 3 is the third installment in the first-person sci-fi shooter series. Developed by Insomniac Games, it is set in an alternate reality during the year 1957, after the US is overrun by a hostile alien race called the Chimera. It will follow an ex-soldier called Joseph Capelli who is hiding out from the Chimera with his family and several other survivors. Besides offering 3D and PlayStation Move support, the game will boast several multiplayer modes for up to 16 people. Check out GameSpot's recent preview for more information.
@Skirikidik You misspell buffoon not two words into your post, and it only gets stupider from there.
@Fayt1986 The beta is free you buy a game that has early access to the beta included at no extra charge (if you live in the USA which I don't Grr). It will still be available on PS+ and then PSN in the last week or so.
i cant wait for duke nukem and buying borderlands means early demo and i still wouldnt buy it..... so this has no chance at all.
Socom 2 was one of the greatest, if not the greatest online shooter I have ever played. It was incredibly fun having to work together and be tactical. Socom 3 ruined everything that was fun about the original, and just made it terrible. Sadly from what I played of the Socom 4 beta, it is a giant leap back into the right direction, but still does not quite have that awesome feel of Socom 2. I think that may be level designs though, because Socom 2 had so many memorable maps, and Socom 4 so far doesn't.
SOCOM 4 is good, it's just that the camera, the grenade throwing mechanics and the preset control mapping that need some tweaking... I can't get used to crouching with triangle and using cover with circle, seriously just swap them...
Considering that KZ3 in the UK didn't come with a beta for Socom. And that the full deployment edition is not for sale over hear also. I doubt I will get a code with Socom "thanks Sony" way to make me feel you want my custom. Getting it anyway my only concern is the same as KZ3, not a mention of your ping online. That and I am sure that you get a ping over 100+ms when playing from the UK someone on the eastern seaboard (when the Euro servers get invaded). Why bunch us together FFS most of Europe you get between 35-50ms stupid.
whoa. the deployment edition looks like it is definitely worth it. $150 for a $60 game a ps move AND nav controller not to mention the sharp shooter accessory! thts crazy to me anyway..
New game comes with beta. Should instead say that you have to pay for beta access, you just get a game on the side. Average game gets bundled with beta of hyped game to try to build sales. :P
never played a SOCOM game before, this actually looks pretty interesting... Im a big fan of third person shooters, way too many FPS these days they all kinda blur into the same thing eventually for me
I can't wait until it gets release been in the beta since it was release for ps+ user and I have a blast play it been I huge socom fan since day1 also I can't wait to try resistance 3
Definitely picking this up, could care less about Resistance 3 at this point. First and second game both were not that great.
@Japanese_Jade a lot of console gamers aren't tied to one specific type of game. Shooters in general area liked across the board by fans of shooters. Sony figures, and rightly so, that gamers who like Socom and other shooters will likely be interested in resistance 3. They bank on some people wanting an early in on Resistance 3 to sell at least a few copies of Socom 4 and also bolster interest in R3s eventual release... seems obvious why they did it to me : \
@Japanese_Jade I would believe they would do this to probably get more people interested in the game by bringing new product to players who don't games like resistance or haven't gotten too. It's a strategic move i would guess.
Socom and Resistance are two completely different games. Whose stupid idea was to bundle them together like this?!
I don't know , I myself like 3rd person shooters. I like seeing myself running, ducking for cover, peeping out to shoot. The one thing I don't understand is when you start in a multiplayer game instead of playing as a team everyone just runs off and gos there own way. Wouldnt it be alot more fun playing together watching each others back doing the mission together or is it just me
I expect inFamous 2 to be bundled with an Uncharted 3 beta that'll start in the summer. inFamous had Uncharted 2 beta that started in June. Qore subcribers also got in so if it is the same it'll be for Playstation Plus and inFamous 2. But if you're not in those two groups then you can still get in with an open beta just before release. They did it for Uncharted 2, Killzone 3, SOCOM 4 so I expect it for Resistance 3 and Uncharted 3. This is all just my speculation though. :)
I had a socom beta key for buying kz3 that I didnt use.. I might download it right now but im not much of a socom guy but i do like resistance :P
guess they knew its a terrible game so they bundled it with a great game -.- hate when that happens...
Why is there always a potentially great beta bundled with a crappy game nowadays? Tried the Socom 4 beta, gotta say it was terrible.
socom needs all the help it can get thats for sure. ill still buyit day one in hopes that it will grow on me one day
so let me get this straight: Resistance 3 Beta is in SOCOM 4, while SOCOM 4 was in Killzone 3 Beta? Next thing you know Resistance 3 will have the Uncharted 3 Beta and so on..
Don't care, I'm still not getting Socom 4. Hopefully we'll get a demo on PSN after the beta is over. ********************************************************* @DanielL5583 Expect to find all those SOCOM games sold and returned as preowned stock without the beta code. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ That's what everyone did with the one with the bluetooth headset. There were tons of Socom being sold on Ebay without the headset. lol!!
it's like a mini third-person version of mag kinda. I don't get how when you aim down you can also be in first-person
