Comic-Com Interview: SOCOM’s Rob Roy

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Jul 29, 2008 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Another update from the just-completed Comic-Con International 2008

RobRoycovers
I managed to catch up with Rob Roy, the man who puts the Navy SEAL is SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs, just at the launch of a SOCOM: Confrontation tournament. Roy has been on the cover of almost every SOCOM game to date, and it’s not just ceremonial. In this interview, he reveals how real SEALs contribute to the only game accurate enough to bear their name.

Indeed, that PlayStation headset really does look good. Thanks for this. I never really got into the whole Socom thing, but it wan’t definitely an interesting video.

Happy Wednesday! :D

Question for Rob:
When you walk, do your feet touch the ground, or do they just shuffle on air (ala Confrontation)?

Woooohooooo, more PS2 news… -.- You guys really need to put PS2 on the back burner. I understand that you guys are making real money with the PS2 but it’s all about the PS3 for me. I have a 60GB PS3 with full BC and I don’t even think about putting a PS2 disc in there.

Can you guys please speak to Capcom about Monster Hunter 3? I don’t mind the game being multi platform. Why not have a PS3 version?

you gotta find yourself a thread that has something to do with your inquiry or nobody will respond, then the people complain (“why does SCE ignore us, etc etc”), and wonder why nobody acknowledges them

Hey Jeff!
Greetings from Colombia!

Quick Question…

BTW, Congrats on PSB’s coverage on July’s Events… Loved it!

Kim,

Will there be any information on Life with PlayStation today or tomorrow?

Hi Submish,

Since E3 there hasn’t been any [news] updates.”

Still waiting for the Qore beta ;)

By the way, now that we can link our PSN’s to our PSU ID’s, does that mean that in the future we’ll be able to recieve, read, create and send PSN messages from our computers?

Hey Jeff, any chance of Sony picking up Ghostbusters since Activision is no longer publishing it? Brutal Legend also? :) Be some nice additions to the PS3 library.

I really hate saying this, but can we get another interviewer? I like the interviews but the guy doing them nearly makes me turn them off. Trouble delivery questions, can’t make sure the person he’s interviewing can even be heard/recorded. Seems awkward in his own skin while on camera. Can we try for somebody with a little more presence or charisma when interviewing people on camera that we as gamers care about?

Scodo_Thope

well, I was echoing Kim regarding the “Life” inquiry which has no business here, and um the rest of the questions I answered in this thread weren’t questions at all. find a thread that has something to do with what you’re asking would you?

@#8 this is not PS2 news this is PS3 news. The reason you have all the PS2 covers on the top is to show you that he’s been on all the covers for the franchise. This game will be great can’t wait to pay it in Septemember ! !

@43
erico316

well, of course SCE could stop me from posting. HOWEVER “I” neither gave advice nor did “I” address a question, all of the information I speculated on was official (which was one question total). IF you post a question, bookmark it. You’ll notice that they answer some of this stuff already, and quit flooding irrelevant topics.

as for the ps2 post, the guy obviously saw the ps2 games and thought this thread was about ‘em. Well it isn’t if you’ll notice, everything I’ve contributed in the thread is safe information, and, in no way was I pretending to convey info that was never validated.
——————————————-
I agree you should raffle some signed or unsigned copies of the SOCOM posters.

you should have asked Rob Roy if the SEALs watch the civilians play the game to discover new possibilities in terms of usable tactics for future SEALs operations.

I hope not. Your approach is a little bit different when you know that if you get killed, you will come back in 5 minutes.
