SOCOM Confrontation update

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Oct 15, 2008 // Sr. Social Media Manager

We’ve noticed a couple of comments today on the blog from gamers who purchased SOCOM Confrontation; you’ve been asking “Where are the trophies?”

Well, I just wrapped up a conversation with the SOCOM team, where they’ve confirmed the fact that trophies *will* be coming, via a patch, within the next couple of weeks.

Stay tuned to SOCOM.com for the latest on SOCOM Confrontation.

Well, I had unkind works last night for the socom team because I couldn’t get into the game. After finally getting in I must say this is a kick %&*# game…graphics and game play are awesome. Let’s get these server load issues fixed and enjoy this great game. Oh, the mic works great too!

Really did not expect this from Socom… Would trophies be retro-active when they are released?

@ 256 LMAO

Anyways, the game is great besides all the errors on the servers. I’m looking forward to the trophies..

+ linuxguru on October 16th, 2008 at 2:23 pm said:

I think they should release a patch that allows LAN play…just like Warhawk.
At least then, if the servers are down, you can start it up and explore the maps.

Never played SOCOM before…so I’d like to get a feel for it.

I just have to say WOOW. they made a big deal about this game its goin to be a big hit … and i cant even connect to the socom server… but waitm when i finaly do and wanto join a server i get disconnected from the game. Not one but about 3-6 games so i cant even play + i cant get my stats up cuz i get the error message that my stats wont be recorded… and now this. What was the points making this game just should of got the zipper make “Socom 2″ PS3 edition, and they could of added more stuff like better user to user interface + Alot more maps, weponds + wepon customization (more then 2 addons to the wepons) and i would realy like to get my momey back for this game…

I bought the game 2 days ago and still haven’t played it yet. First night needed to download Firm Ware 2.5 (180MB) from Sony and kept getting disconnected. Downloaded from an offsite PC, thanks to a T1. Tried to play again and then it asks for another game download (487 MB) which I am trying to download for the 4th time in 3 hours. Can’t find this update online, looks like I may never play this game.

The game looks to be awsome and given the other releases in the series it should be great. Sony needs to get it together. There shouldn’t be an update for the system everytime a new game comes out, let alone updates that are 1/2 gig.

SCHWAA….i hope it makes you feel better about yourself by bashing other people about what system they have. goood for you loser.

Now to things that actually matter…here i am on my third day of having socom and i’ve been able to play a few rounds before it kicked me. and for the time being i’m giving up on the whole ‘cannot log on’ for another day.

I will give slant 6 and playstation credit in that they at least have addressed that they do have a problem with the game. But I am irritated that they havent worked the problems out with the beta. when you log on it says that its due to the massive amount of people playing. Look at the earlier socoms, there were always tons of people playing them too. they had to know it was coming.

I’m not like the others, i wont be selling my ps3 because i’m sure they’ll get it all working eventually. but for now socom sucks and thats all there is to it.

oh and by the way i used to be one of you die hard playstation loyalists. then i got an xbox…and online is well worth the 50 bucks a year it costs to play. If you can I would suggest trying it out…..at least until socom works properly!

+ ACE9 on October 16th, 2008 at 6:28 pm said:

Issues… $60 and an online only game can’t keep the servers up and running. That in itself is unacceptable. But on top of that this game has the name SOCOM on it. THIS IS NOT SOCOM! SOCOM has a single player mode that you play a few times to unlock weapons and equipment for online play, ALL of the SOCOM games were (ARE)that way. SOCOM also doesn’t have a run button. Running should be natural movement. If one is getting shot at, you don’t make a conscious decision to run it’s reaction. That is what made SOCOM stand out as a SIMULATION SHOOTER. They seriously should have just put CoD 5 on the front of the box. But then it wouldn’t sell as well…

Wow since yesterday i couldn’t play Socom Confrontation because, the sever is so laggy and busy that does not let me get in to any room. However when a hopeful sign appears to get inside the game-play , like few seconds after i get disconnected.

I don’t want to start thinking that i paid for this game that unfortunately i can’t even play.

+ SHADOWSOLDIER on October 16th, 2008 at 7:46 pm said:

I do not understand the update, and all the issues. This is the reason why XBOX has cornered the online playing market. I played the SOCOM BETA, hoping the ACTUAL game would be much better, faster, and better graphics since it is BLU RAY. I buy the game, spend a long time figuring out all the downloads, updates, etc. Now there is network connection issues, and when you get on you can barely make it into a server. Than once in the room usually gets booted. Had the game since release, been able to play twice. Waste of money. And the Combat and gun power is WAY Off. But I am sure it is good for those who have never been there done that or fired the weapons. I guess if this is your first time playing SOCOM all will be well. But for us DIEHARD SOCOMERS sicne SOCOM 1, time to abandon ship. This game rates about a 2 out of 10. I am wondering why PS3 or SLANT SIX would release a unfinished game in the condition it is in. So far PS3 has been a waste while I log over 60 hours a week on xbox live. Seems like PSN is not getting the whole ONLINE concept. I wish this was a isolated event but seems like all my friends are having the same issues as well. Oh well, back to XBOX live Call Of Duty 4 and time to trade this POS in for a XBOX game. When will SONY ever get it right??

THIS is why you don’t release online only games, if you can’t connect to a game all you have is a $60 coaster. How incompetent do you have to be to not be ready for the release of one of your brands flagship titles.

Real shocker that Sony got caught with its pants down again concerning the PS3, it’s no wonder Sony and the PS3 are in the position they’re in this gen. Poor decision after poor decision.

awesome! they’re agreeing to give us what they were supposed to give us initially? I’m so glad they agreed to that. Maybe you should go back and ask them to release a version of the game that possibly works, because right now I have a forty dollar head-ache and frustration inducer.

the people complaining about trophies are seriously retarded. are you feeling the butthurt cause you cant claim “OH MAH GAWD. PEOPLEZ LOOK, I GOT A TROPHY!”. it sucks if your life amounts to hey guys i got a trophy on a video game. Personally i love socom, mostly socom 2, and i had no problem having no awards on there, you play games for fun. not to be a complete loser in life and have bragging rights through virtual trophies. ZOMG FALSE ADVERTISING THOUGH! ITS ON ZE BOX! chill out youll get your trophies, as if they really matter. be happy its socom and in hd. people really dont care about what trophies you have because no matter what they will say you are a noob, youre pulling your cord, youre glitching, or you just plain suck. nothing to prove on a videogame, have fun. thank you.

I’m looking at you chriscowboyd. I feel slightly retarded even trying to read your posts. Learn to read and write! Won’t you?

I have a friend who preordered SOCOM, when he says it works, I will join you guys in game. I don’t think trophies are essential, but I see where the guys that miss them are coming from.

Bought SOCOM: Confrontation the day it hit Gamestop. When I try to play the game it downloads a large data file, then after I press Start it tries to load a player profile, then reports it it corrupt and I have to delete the profile. When I run it again the same thing. How can I get this game to properly install and run?

i dont really care about the trophies

where is the update on the server status?

can we get an update on this?

as well as the missing features like Quick Match..

would really like to know what happened to this release?

out of all the games i am buying/bought for my ps3 Socom: Confrontation was on the top of my list and am noticing little to no support from sony for it.

trophys will gome in due time. i want to know what sony is doing about the server overload for the game. dropped $65 buck on this game and i cant even play it. oh and by the way /6 is passing the buck to sony for all the problems.

i will say that when i was able to play on the 14th, the game was great. havnt been able to get on since.

@289

To repair the corrupt game data you just delete the game save data. The game will create a new one when you log into Socom again. I had the same problem. You do not need to delete or re-load the install data.

+ maddmatt69 on October 17th, 2008 at 11:00 am said:

Yep, I think I agree with most of the posts on here…this game is more of a hassle than it is fun…

For all of you having problems with getting the game downloads what worked for me was to start off by deleting anything that has to do with socom. do this before you start downloading the new stuff or you’ll be doing it again. and if you thought the wait to download it the first time, wait until you have to do it again.

after that mine worked fine…err well it let me get to where i can attempt to log on anyways.

and in the game when it says ‘corrupt’ or whatever it says if you dont know already just keep pressing x until it goes off the screen. and do it every time it comes up.

well good luck, hopefully better than mine!

I would just like to say the game was a big mistake to buy!!!! spent about a hour just getting the game installed on my ps3 and updated. Sadly to say now that I have given up with this online only game due to poor servers and lack luster game play. Thank you bestbuy of atlanta,ga for letting me bring back this game for a full refund. I am going to stick with my xbox360.
