No Killzone 2 update this week… fortunately Insomniac picks up the slack.

    I recently posted a new blog over at the Insomniac Games developer’s website. I talk about the “jazz hands” process, my experience at PAX, the Resistance private/public beta, and even dish out a few details regarding the next R2 trailer. Check it out at http://www.insomniacgames.com/news/.

    As soon as we have an update with LwP, I promise you\’ll see it here first.

    As for your second question, SOCOM.com would carry that info. I haven\’t heard anything.

    Official word is still \”this Fall\”, but when the Criterion guys are back on the blog next friday, please feel free to ask them.

    Don\’t forget, their free bikes patch goes live on Thursday!

I know it’ll never happen but everyone who bought Jeopardy should be given a refund. It’s probably the worst game on PSN right now. I can’t believe you guys charged $15 for it. Even Go! Sports Ski had higher production values and it was only $2.99!

i was gone all week, so this is an especially interesting weekly recap for me!

btw- the new PAIN amusement park is great!

Oh, and people should check out Mercs2, it’s a pretty fun game, kinda rough around the edges and the characters repeat dialogue too much, but i’m really digging the multiple ways to finish any mission..

thanks Jeff for the recap-

Got Qore 1 but no beta code for socom? there is no help for this ether. just so you know. but I was wondering I got Qore 1 for free via PTOM. And was wondering if we were still able to recive an invite? I thought all you had to do was download episode 1 of Qore.

+ PSPsGTghOost on September 13th, 2008 at 1:46 pm said:

Hey Jeff,

The PSN trophy feature seems empty. Please get some big titles released so far to support it. Like..

MGS4
GTA4
All PS3 Insomniac games

That’s all. Its not a impossible list.

Why dont you respond Jeff, Mr. Social Manager? Your hands tied on the matter?

    Yep, I\’ve got no power over Konami or Take Two. Well, or Insomniac Games. Though I know that the Insom guys are super busy tying up R2 right now (which will have Trophies). Next time I see the team (soon), I\’ll be sure to echo the sentiment.

I agree. Jeopardy is a horrible game.

I think the Pain update was really good. I love that game and I love the fact that the people behind PAIN are constantly communiticating with the fans on a persentant basis. Oh and the burnout bike update looks great as well.

I do got a question for Jeff. Since you are the Soical Media Manager, do you have a team of people or assistants helping you manage the social media? Would you happen to need more help in the coming weeks? I only ask because I am a FPQA Game Test Analysis over at the 989 buliding with a contract is nearing its end. To work with the gaming public and other gaming media sites is something I am interested in plus I am a college graduate with a degree in sociology and marketing. Sorry if it sounds kinda desprate but I love working at Sony and I want to keep working here for as long as I can. I am sure you understand that hahahah.

Well This is a good year for the PS3 thats for sure. But please tell me that the PSP is getting another SOCOM game, and some other big name third party games! We need Sony to line up more exclusive PSP third party games for the system!

Get COD on the machine with the same combat system as the one Sony Bend is useing right now on Resistance: Retrobution, get a Battlefield game (not like BC because the PSP can’t handle it) But at least like SOCOM, but with vehicles!

With the PSP getting PSN this year, it’s time to make a big and large push for the PSP in the online games department!

Very disappointing :(. Better luck down the road :) with first party games, but it seems the quality is far from even what we had last year. The talent pool in SCE is at it’s lowest in a decade.

Hey Jeff you definitely tell slant six that socom is working pretty good as far as latency issues go. Haven’t been able to tear myself away from it for too long. Looking forward to the release and I must say. Nice to see the blog in it’s originality… Do YOU play Socom Jeff?

quick question,has nothing to do with this.why in madden 09 they have the new roster update and tom brady is hurt for the season with his knee injury and they have that in the game but they might as well have not put him in the third string slot as injured because he plays like he is god in the game when he is hurt.

I too have not got mine yet. According to this http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?message.uid=38283179#U38283179 we should get the codes tommorow.

———–

Hi, Folks-

To those who did not get your Beta code email, I want to apologize. We have been looking into the problem all day to try to figure out what was going on. I won’t go into the gory details, but we discovered that there was a technical problem that prevented some of the emails from going out. The people responsible are working on the problem now and have told me that they will reblast those emails by 5:00 PDT tomorrow afternoon. I’m sorry, but it will take them that long to get it all sorted out, set up and arranged.

I am so sorry that you missed the first couple of days of Beta but technical issues sometimes happen. All we can do is try to correct the problem and that’s what we are doing. If you were affected by this glitch, it should be resolved for you by tomorrow evening.

If you are getting your Beta download for subscribing to QORE, that will not be available until this Friday. We’ll have more details on that soon.

Once again, I apologize for this problem.

-Abigale

The Socom beta is disappointing! I’m in the beta and the game looks only okay. Graphically, it’s poor considering its a PS3 title. I will still buy the $60 bundle for the bluetooth headset \=^. I’ll keep the official Sony bluetooth headset and I’ll ebay the poorly done Socom bluray. I’m a big Socom fan but this one is not worth the money. My best advice is for Sony to push this title back as far as possible in order to deliver some quality.

Ghostm ARE YOU FOR REAL DUDE. You think it doesn’t look good, well thats because it’s A BETA! You shouldn’t expect too much for a beta and if you were a TRUE SOCOM FAN (like myself) things like that don’t make a whole lot of difference. I personally think it looks great and plays very well, just wish that when sniping you could “Hold you Breath” like in all previous Socom’s. Heck if you’re going to just sell the game why not give it to “Child’s Play” so that some sick kid somewhere could enjoy it…. my 2 cents worth.
