I think basically what they are saying is "We already approached Sony about doing another Socom and they rejected the idea so instead of bugging us on our twitter and facebook sites go bug SCEA about it" lol.
For once I think tomb is right. They should just drop the socom name and make a game.
omg what a shocker!!!!!! I totally didn't see that coming! Like OH MY GAWD!!!!
Ya not a big surprise that they are not currently officially working on SOCOM. Now that they have said that I guess they can get started working on it now
I don't understand why they don't just put out a map pack for con. If they used old maps I can't see it being costly.
it costly when alot guys are going to be wanting a contract to work. I think thats where the issue lie , no is going to working for free. i dont see why sony dont jus tput a psn dev on it just to make expansion map pack.. I mean this is just a very very awful thing..
might as well ask us to swallow knife.
We still have SOCOM 4
....and Confrontation.... AND SOCOM 1 + 2 + 3 + CA (for another 10 or so days...), AND we still have the hope that SONY IS working on a socom HD or IS PLANNING / THINKING about it after all the feedback.... Remember people... just because SLANT 6 says they aren't working on a socom doesn't mean that the people that OWN the socom franchise (SONY..........) haven't given the green light for another company to make or remake a socom. Not trying to give people false hope.. but just letting you know the obvious.. just because slant 6 isn't working on a socom doesn't mean another dev isn't. Plus, as Vanilla already said, anyone that truly follows socom and knows what they are talking about HAS KNOWN for MONTHS that slant 6 has NOT been working on socom, but that they do WANT to. Nuff said. Also, don't forget what one of the sony bosses / presidents? Yoshida said about socom... "we never retire a franchise"...................... Point is - keep pestering sony about socom, and we just might get through to them after all this time.......... I really personally cannot fathom how they can make so many HD remakes and not remake their biggest online PS2 game. I think we'll see it, might have to wait till next year, but we'll see. If not, I'd be willing to bet some money we'll at least see socom return on the PS4 in it's first year of launch. Sony does not have THAT many franshises... and I don't think they will ignore their main tactical shooter for much longer.. although they have done so with Syphon Filter. You never know. Can't say no or yes, because the truth is NOBODY knows right now, just will have to wait and see what they decide on this next year as they end the PS3's cycle (and stop releasing HD remakes...) and transition to the PS4. If we don't hear anything in the next year I'd say then all the socom fans can say "no confrontation 2 or s6 or S2 HD anytime soon". Way too soon to say it now, especially since nobody knows what slant 6 is doing after the resident evil game they made.. (and slant 6 themselves saying they'd love to work on another socom......) ...and SONY themselves have hinted at socom continuing, sooner or later. We'll just have to see.
