The PSB & SOCOM.com Weekly Recap

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager

The theme of the week isn’t hard to guess, with Metal Gear Solid 4 posts bookending the week. Speaking of which: enough writing – I’m going back to play some more.

BTW, how do we use the iPod in MGS4 to listen to our own music on the XMB? I was listening to the podcast and it said we could. Has anyone figured out how to get it to work?

Thanks for the recap Jeff. Pretty good week.

I’m actually looking forward to your article of PlayStation news around the net, because I want to see if a certain story ends up there. ;)

I really wonder how will be the socom game. I never played one in my life only in the PSP and I don’t like it. But from what I saw in Qore it will be reaaaally good.

By the way, I wonder how many trophies I have by now too lol.

For the record… Gamespot give MGS4 a 10, why I celebrate? because they hate the PS3 lol.

    So since we\’re all talking about MGS4, does anyone know how to hold up PMCs and shake them down for items?

For those who haven’t played it yet, if you have the money RUN to the stores it’s well worth the money.

Oh yeah, sorry to double post but, FREE TIBET and where or how can I put my OWN music on my MGS4 ipod.

Lots of product placement int he game. A mac g 5, and allinone mac, lots of mac stuff, why? why not Sony Vaio computers and monitors and tv’s? why Apple? I like the PS3 int he room and what game is the little girl playing? is that old school Ridge Racer?

Also off topic, who did the score for Battlefield Bad Company? I would love to get my hands on some DL’s of the music. It’s really great old skewl jazz. Help a bro out yo!

    I\’ll have to ask someone at Konami about the ipod…

Prezhulio said:

To hold them up at gun point you have to sneak up behind them without being noticed and aim with a pistol (L1 default) so you can use your other hand to start shaking them down for items.

while we’re talking about MGS4, the ingame podcasts says you can listen to your own music on the ipod, but that functionality isn’t available. Was this a mistake on ryan paytons part for saying it, or is this coming down the road?

Prezhulio said:

June 15th, 11:32 am

@ JEFF oh yeah you have to use triangle to start searching, if an exclamation comes up press triangle to steal more.

oh yeah, thanks for keeping the blog amazing!
