Gain the upper hand in multiplayer gameplay with two powerful new multiplayer units outfitted with new lethal weapons when you pre-order your copy of SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3. See details below:

New Special Forces

Kommando Speizialkrafte (KSK): Play as the deadly KSK. Formed at the end of the Cold War, the KSK operates under the Special Operations Division. KSK operators go through an intense training program, taking up to three years to complete over 20 counter-terrorism specialist courses.

SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3 GERM

Special Air Service (SAS): Compete as the elite British SAS. Often considered the template by which other Special Forces are organized, the SAS has its origin in the North African Theatre of World War II. The motto of the SAS is “Who Dare Wins,” a solid description of their skill and mindset.

New Weapons

F2000: The German KSK are outfitted with the powerful F2000 assault rifle. The F2000 offers the most popular features of the modern assault rifle including a compact bullpup layout, completely ambidextrous handling and a modular design with plenty of options and add-ons which allow the rifle to be tailored for any mission or tactical situation.

Lightweight and transportable, the AS-50 can be disassembled in less than three minutes and serviced without tools.

lol@ looking for a quick match hahahaha. Real SOCOMes dont do quick matches hahahah.

Who cares about SOCOM outside of the Socom Community NOBODY!!!! So Sony leaves us hanging out to dry after taking our money with no remorse. There is no reason Sony should have allowed Slant Six to botch this game the way they did. I Blame SONY if I wasn’t such an avid gamer lol I would boycott the PS3 lmao

September 16th, 6:45 pm

I bought the bundle and kept the headset and sold the game. Are you guys still stuck on the same old maps ? Man thats to funny when killzone 2 and other games after have already DLC .Sony gave this game to the wrong DEVS…..You could have easily brought confrontation to the ps2

September 16th, 6:47 pm

@ 54 then what do real socom player do ? look at the title on there tv ? am going to take a guess a say you dont have the game . there not enough player to do anything else . how about you playing the game instead of creating on joke cause you suck at them better yet write for x play cause there jokes suck to.

Agent_Clutch said:

September 16th, 7:03 pm

@58 Check my stats homie. I been around since Aug 27th 2002 how about you?. If you have to ask what “Real Socomers” do then obviously you aren’t one. But I’ll break it down for you…Real Socomers do clan wars or ranked matches 8v8 16v16. Nobody does quick matches because scrubs like you abort mid way through the match. And there is atleast 12k online a night post 1.5 patch that’s more then enough people to find a room and play with. People like you are the reason this game is the way it is. Trying to appeal to the casual players. When the hardcore people who are the ones that will burn hard earn cash on anything SOCOM!!!

Not to add to the naysaying but I haven’t forgiven S6 for the flop that is Socom: Confrontation. This actually looks good (awesome boxart) but I’m VERY skeptical. I may pass.

Heavenly_king said:

September 16th, 8:34 pm

This game will be so freaking AWESOME!!!

RyoOhKi666 said:

September 16th, 8:45 pm

sorry but im gonna pass on this i dont want to get F’d if i end up buying a copy and have it being Confrontation all over again would rather just Put it towards MAG or Modern warfare 2

Irishmandkg said:

September 16th, 8:56 pm

No SCC DLC? Really? No thanks, I’ve had enough of s/6 crappy support for their games. I’ve got better games to spend my money on such as codmw2, dragon age, and assasins creed 2, and of course scribblenauts!

You kids need to get out and get a girl or something? I just don’t get it. I played socom c when it first came out, but then again I played it casually as resistance and valkyria chronciles , lbp, motorstorm, fallout 3, and countless other games took me away from it. It wasn’t that bad. I had fun.. You guys act like little kids with your boycott crap, or worse you act like Xbots.. problaby are xbots who just bought a ps3 for socom with the amount of whining you do. This board needs mods, bad. Slant six last psp game socom tactics was a great game. And the fireteam games were great too.. I will buy this.

@ 59 to sit there and say there are no problem with the game is sad so what your saying is just keep playing a broken game right ? you mine friend are missing the point . go checkout all the comment here and and ask yourself this why are there so many of us not happy or even playing the game its not about you or your damn stats. that why / six won’t fix the game are you that dum ? i hope your not also go check R2, gears, K2 , morden warfare , halo and yes warhawk there are plenty of people playing any hour of the day and why there developer care about there game what about / six ? it’s been a year no comment from them.

cowboyd21 said:

September 16th, 11:26 pm

@ 59 if you and others keep playing the game then / six won they can always say well there people playing it so what wrong with it?and do nothing there a reason why all of stop playing the game . go check the game sells it’s not the top 50 game or even 100 but you keep saying alot of people play it ? do be a fool all your life Mr big real socom player . HEY / SIX YOU GOT A FOOL HEAR HE MR BIG SOCOM PLAYER ! hey whatever dude we can all go a check your stats right ok.

cowboyd21 said:

September 16th, 11:43 pm

@ 59 12k one night wow , on socom yo do the math mr big real socom player that not alot of people playing also they pull that number after the patch really now that the best joke you told all day. so ask yourself this what kind of number they pull before the patch 5k or even 10k well all i can say is you 12k one night people keep playing a broken game.

I think you all just need to chill out really. Its your own faults that you continue to play a game that wasnt up to scratch. Trade it in or something. Or get a life maybe?

This game had better control like Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow (great series on the PSP); otherwise, there’s really no point. The control scheme works brilliantly with the single analog input system, and should be the standard for PSP shooters.

I just went back yesterday, trying to playing FTB2, and that game is a total nightmare to control. Awful, awful experience.

Add to the fact that Slant Six can’t seem to produce a decent game, and I’m not so sure I’ll be spending any time with this product.

September 17th, 5:36 am

why is crappy slant six devloping this socom for PSP? its already bad enough the f uped socom confrontation

cmon sony you better let ZIPPER design the next socom game

inveigle said:

September 17th, 6:02 am

Awesome cover!

cowboyd21 said:

September 17th, 6:52 am

@ 73 then read his comment on 54 he blame everyone but / six then give excuse well you have to be a real socom player to enjoy the game or after the patch socom had 12k in one night and here his best joke it’s sony fault . all we saying is were not playing socom or buying anything / six makes , we have the right to say that just like you have the right to support him or / six enough said.


September 17th, 6:54 am

After buying socom disconnection beta on the first day then waiting a week to play it and now a yr for it to finally get out of beta..oh and had a yr and a half for dlc.. im done with slant six… they should never have been allowed to touch socom for ps3.. the fasle advertising on the back of the box alone was just despicable… i loved this series till slant six got there hands on it screw slant six and i hope you fail at all you other ventures The only good thing that came out of socom confrontation was the bluetooth headse.

freakzilla149 said:

September 17th, 7:07 am

I’m sorry but SOCOM confrontation should be your priority, There are quite a few people who love to play a game without glitches on every single map.

RuthlessEd said:

September 17th, 7:33 am

Our issue with Slant Sux doesn’t stem from the suggestion that S:C is a bad game (everyone has their own opinion) but from the fact that Slant Sux released a game that:

1. Didn’t include major features that were advertised directly on the game packaging.

2. Didn’t include major features that were actually described in the MANUAL that shipped with the game.

3. Didn’t include major features that were promised during pre-release interviews and marketing campaigns.

This issue is bigger than just producing a bad game. It’s about lying to customers and stealing their money.

I think /6 should give this game out for free Via PSN. For all those people who were riped off on confrontaion. Also where is the DLC for socoom we was promised it took the back seat for a PSP game. Goes to show how much they care about there products. FIX SOCOOM :(

I will never buy another game made by Slant Six again.

I enjoyed the other PSP Socoms and I liked what I played if this one at pax. Confrontation was terrible when it came out. Especially considering most of the problems were in the beta.


September 17th, 10:40 am

Thanks to all your warnings I didn’t get Confrontation, it was going to be my 1st Socom game, it looked great on the previews, but a week later everyone was complaining.

Mxdeftone said:

September 17th, 12:15 pm

the NEW Number 79 has a point…. A VERY STONG POINT

SandSkorpion said:

September 17th, 12:38 pm

I wonder if Sony knew they were going to get this kind of feedback? I also just grabbed Confrontation for the blue tooth…looks like I made a good choice.

top-gun908 said:

September 17th, 12:53 pm

If it’s made by Slant 6, I’m not buying it!

Slant 6 killed SOCOM. I was a dedicated fan until Zipper lost the contract. Bring back Zipper Interactive.

I am so excited for this game to come out. I CANT WAIT!!!!!!!

September 21st, 1:35 pm

All of you need to just SHUT UP. Slant Six may have messed up on the ps3, but the psp is a totally different console. It’s different making games on the psp, and so far this game has gotten good previews, so you all just need to get over the fact that confrontation sucked, it was a completely different game.

October 7th, 9:12 pm

wow. it looks like im gonna have to wait for the review to come out. crap, i was looking foward to this game.

TakeUrBestShot said:

October 15th, 11:53 am

Problem ladies and gents, the release date has been pushed back to February 2010. I’m just waiting from official word from Sony and Slant Six to confirm this.
