Brian Gauld's Avatar + Posted by Brian Gauld on Jun 24, 2011 // Media Partnerships Specialist, SCEA

PlayStation and Major League Gaming are giving you two chances to show everyone what you’ve got in SOCOM 4—and win big in the process.

MLG Boot Camp

Boot Camp gives anyone who registers and completes a match the chance to win awesome prizes regardless of skill. Registration is open now, and Boot Camp ladder play is currently running through July 13th. Registering your 6-man team on MLG’s Gamebattles.com and playing at least one match will put you in the running for both Boot Camp prizing and the Official $20,000 Ladder Tournament. If you’re a lone soldier, check out the MLG forums where you can team up with other players of your skill level.

Boot Camp prizing includes:

• Two-hour gaming sessions with the Zipper Interactive dev team

• ASUS professional gaming monitors

• Full Astro A40 Systems (SOCOM 4 Customized)

• MLG Gunnars

The Online multiplayer for this game was extremely unimpressive. Nice try Zipper, I was a MAG addict and because you made this game I was thinking the online would be comparable to MAG. Boy was I wrong, the online just plain sucks in my opinion.

What’s the matter Zipper? Couldn’t handle my last post so you deleted it? Not my fault you ruined a great franchise with this terrible game. Go eat dirt.

I should correct an earlier remark.

Zipper didn’t just quietly kill the MAG forums and lock everyone out over the weekend, they were migrating service providers.

Would have been *GREAT* if they’d mentioned it ahead of time, though.
