Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
SOCOM: Confrontation is an online-only third person tactical shooter video game for the PlayStation 3 and is the sequel for the previous games SOCOM 3: U.S. Navy SEALs, SOCOM Combined Assault and SOCOM II: U.S. Navy SEALs. The game is being developed by Slant Six Games which is located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It is being published by Sony Computer Entertainment. The game will support 32 players and will be sold both on the PlayStation 3's online store and on a Blu-ray Disc with a Bluetooth headset. SOCOM: Confrontation is scheduled for a release in the first quarter of 2008.  The game was first announced at the SCEA's Gamers Day at their Santa Monica Studios.
Luisi announced that there are five different North African themed maps including Socom II: U.S. Navy Seals famous "Crossroads." Slant Six has no plans at this time to include vehicles as it wants the maps to be more "intimate" instead of large maps.
This game is slated for release any week now... as an old school Socom addict I cannot wait for this. 32 players in a socom map? Pinch me. I must be dreaming. Sony really needs to do a better job advertsing becuase I had never heard of this before today and I found it on accident.
