Update: SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3

Mark Rogers's Avatar + Posted by Mark Rogers on Oct 28, 2009 // Senior Producer, SCEA

Hi Everyone,

We want to give you an update on SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3‘s release date. It will now be available on January 12, 2010. The PSP title’s development is on schedule and we are extremely pleased with all aspects of the title. It’s looking and playing great…some high value visual assets (screens and video) have only recently been made available to global marketing and we have decided to move the release and allow time to get the word out to everyone.

In case you haven’t yet seen it, you can check out the latest Fireteam Bravo 3 hit over at GameSpot.

I understand that this move is disappointing to some in the community, however as a result, you will be seeing a lot more of SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3 in the following weeks! – stay tuned.

Please pass a message to the PS3 developing team that we want the 1.6 patch and DLC before the next coming.

Socom is the biggest played franchise on PSN, yet the people who spent the money on the game bought a beta thats still not finished.

How about you actually address these issues Mark?

Because I’m not buying another socom related product in the future based on Sony & Slant6′s attitude towards the problem.No one has apologized for the condition Socom was released, no one has even mentioned it. You get deleted if you do.

I’m glad you all have this great PSP campaign, but keep in mind without the socom community, you aren’t going to move as many copies of the game without SOCOM FANS buying it.

It makes me sick because I definitely enjoy all of the sony products & the PS3. But its nonsense to keep pretending there isn’t a constant outcry in regards to confrontation is asinine.

I’ll pass. Esp. after the Slant Six fiasco.

So….Who is going to develop SOCOM 4? We promise not to tell.


10

+ GordaoPreguicoso on October 28th, 2009 at 11:35 am said:

So any one going to watch the world series?

Thought I would change the subject since no one cares about this game.

+ Appo on October 28th, 2009 at 11:37 am said:

Mark, were you at PAX? I met some producer at PAX. Don’t know if it was you. lol

Anyways, the game is really fun. Will prolly pick it up.

Wow…right when I was getting pumped for when I get my Brand New psp, and a copy of SOCOM Fire Team Bravo 3.
I actually enjoy SOCOM Confrontation sooo wheres the news on 1.6 and the DLC?!

+ LordRaoh on October 28th, 2009 at 11:44 am said:

Pass..

want to keep the socom franchise alive?

Reissue Socom 1, 2 and 3 remastered. Work on Socom 4 with campaign mode included. give it a bigger budget. larger dev support. dont allow the deve working on socom for the ps3 to take time out to work on the psp version.

Why dont you fix your already broken game(Socom Confrontation) before releasing another broken game?

This game will have low sales due to the work thats been done on Confrontation. Hell you guys shouldn’t have even gotten approved to make another Socom after you butchered the last one.

Boycott this game and this company!

So Mark, how long until Seth screws up MAG? We all know it is going to happen.

LOL…SLANT 6′s FAILURE’S WILL NEVER END…I also blame you SONY for not supporting this franchise properly since SOCOM 3….I won’t be buying anything from this franchise ever again until….THINGS CHANGE 360 DEGREES..NEW DEVELOPER,NEW DEVELOPEMENT MANAGER (SETH) ETC. I’m through with this series until then !!!!

Ha HA HA I’m Loving it. Suck SIX does it again. At least you are consistent, you’re a sorry excuse for a developer. Get the word out? The word is already out you scrubs, why don’t you just scratch FTB3 and move onto a remake of pong!!! [DELETED] you might screw that up too. congrats on the laughing stock of the gaming community award SUCK SIX!!!!

Zipper has moved on to bigger and better things!

@10 GordaoPreguicoso

I’m watching it for sure. I have the Yankees winning a much hard fought series in Game 7. Yeah it should be a good World Series. Jay-Z should be performing in Game 1 so that’s kind of cool I guess.

Oh this.

Uh yeah…I’m not getting this either and I don’t think it’s the move that’s pissing people off. Ha Ha. Good luck though.

Wow, you guys are being harsh…and I guess its mostly deserved..I havent touched Socom for months now…I always believe they would fix it. But wow still broken huh

Well i’ll say this. the devs only have themselves to blame, It seems like more people would be satisfied with just some correspondence ….guess it will be another couple of months before I touch socom again.

+ MaGeeK-mAn on October 28th, 2009 at 1:21 pm said:

One very important question:
Will there be a demo or multiplayer beta released before that date?


26

+ Wiscompton on October 28th, 2009 at 1:45 pm said:

Mark Mark Mark. Do you enjoy it when your plane is delayed and you get to spend more time in the terminal listening to the gate agents scream into the microphones? Because this is essentially the same thing as your lame closing line.. We effectively get MORE ADVERTISING rather than actually playing the game.


27

+ Wiscompton on October 28th, 2009 at 1:46 pm said:

@17:

Please review your math. A 360 will leave you right where you began. You likely meant a 180. Sorry, this is an annoyance of mine that hurts my brain when I hear dumb people try and use math to appear smart.

@ 27 LOL hahahaha I like the comment

I think it’s time to just end this series. Delay after delay. Just put it out of it’s misery.

+ losetheshizzle on October 28th, 2009 at 2:05 pm said:

I’m with everyone else commenting on this blog and every other blog out there that has anything to do with SOCOM. On PS3 SOCOM Confrontation is the only game of its kind. It has a monopoly on the market. Why do you think Slant is giving us all the finger?


31

+ ExPresident on October 28th, 2009 at 2:06 pm said:

Won’t ever purchase a /6 product again. Sony and /6 can both look at Socom Confrontation for the reason why. You failed the community.

Fool me once shame on you.
Fool me twice shame on me.

There won’t be a second time.


32

+ losetheshizzle on October 28th, 2009 at 2:28 pm said:

This blog entry truly was a big slap in all of our faces.. If we get a release date that is within a reasonable timeframe, and when it finally passes and the DLC and 1.6 actually correct the mess; I might buy slant again. But not until that litmus test is passed.


33

+ Se7enthSign on October 28th, 2009 at 3:18 pm said:

In case you guys didn’t already know, Modern Warfare 2 will have a 3rd person option in multiplayer. Now if Slant Six and Sony would be so kind as to “loan” Infinity Ward/Activision the rights to maps like Desert Glory, Fish Hook, and Frostfire, you guys won’t have to worry about any more flame parties over Socom!

The good old socom is long gone..

This game is gonna get OWNED in January. Wow do they have mental people working there? Come on.

+ my_katamari on October 28th, 2009 at 3:59 pm said:

@34 Its sad that Zipper let it go to a team that just destroyed the SOCOM games. I am no longer buying a SOCOM game unless it has Zippers name on it. Slant 6 = Destroys a games reputation.


37

+ Den_of_Iniquity on October 28th, 2009 at 4:01 pm said:

Hey this is for people with psp’s who like the psp socom series, it has nothing to do with the ps3. So stop complaing about how incomplete confrontation was and how bad of a job slant six did. They made tactical strike a great game, i think they can make socom 3 amazing. So all you guys that are complaing get off their back!!!


38

+ MooseDog_00 on October 28th, 2009 at 4:06 pm said:

i know guys yall are complete idiots, dont run to a psp version of a game to thrash it and complain about an update for the PS3 version

Hey you guys get Zipper after MAG to make SOCOM 4. we are mad at slant 6 for not delivering a real socom experience. It’s been a while.

+ ledzep96 on October 28th, 2009 at 6:06 pm said:

if seeing alot more means a demo then i can wait but this is still insanely STUPID! way to f things up /6

+ MeanMrMustard on October 28th, 2009 at 6:20 pm said:

I cannot believe Zipper made MAG. Been playing the beta for a week now. It’s CoD with more people. Run, shoot, die, respawn, repeat. MAG is horrible, Socom is a mess. I’m just dumbfounded at the whole situation. I don’t know how any of you will ever be able to rebound from this, but another post telling of a delay wasn’t it. I could go on for a very long time about whats wrong and what needs to be fixed. So hey, Sony, messesage me and we’ll discuss it. Maybe I can help, you know sometimes talking to your customers helps.

Slant six is not going to last much longer as a business. They have alienated the Socom Fan base. That is the wrong thing to do. Yeah maybe they were thinking they were trying their best but they changed to much of the game. Socom 2 to Socom Combined Assault while Lacking in great graphics (although they were stunning for their time) had amazing game play. This current iteration of Socom has the graphics kinda but not the game play.
If i was their owner, I would scout for new and better talent to FIX the game. I would promptly hand out pink slips to the current team.

I am totally Done with Socom until Zipper Releases Socom 4: United Front.

Possibly due in mid to late 2011….

+ anticulture on October 28th, 2009 at 8:20 pm said:

Please, please, please, please, please include the controls from the Syphon Filter PSP games (move with face buttons; aim with the stick; hold L to focus aim and hold R to fire). This is the only thing that will convince me to even consider purchasing.

Also, Slant Six should stop making video games. Sorry guys, you’re just not very good at it. :(
