Yes this is my pal razor dak, the guy who got me streaming games, he is beta testing the confrontation servers with the pc emulation! If this improves and gets fixed up, fixes the audio glitches and pop ins, wow, it will run more smoothly and be better. I will play the hell out of this on pc… the ps3 version has a lot of frame rate issues i hope the pc can fix 🙂
COD and WARZONE has weened me off of Socom Confrontation, Socom 2, Socom Combined assault. I just have 0 fun playing socom now. I loved confrontation, but after the ranking update the game runs worse, bad framerates. After grinding multiplayer on cold war to unlock weapons for warzone, i started to realize that hard core search and destroy is socom enough for me when i want that kind of game. Also team death match is something I really love. I am good at it. I am usually at the top of the board when i play it. Its a lot more fun, and it plays with a high frame rate, with way better graphics, and now with low fan noise(ps4 pro) and in 4k with raytracing on the ps5, which i love. Zippy fast aiming too. Responsive, unlike socom when the frame rate drops The old ps2 socom games are so dated and bad that i cannot stand them i tried so hard to like them, and i just do not see what people like about socom 2 or any of the ps2 titles, the single player games are good, but multiplayer is bah, bad hit detection, slow stiff unsmooth controls. Uhg, on my pc an i9 rx 580 it runs bad. even at default settings.
I hope now there is no new socom game. After playing with the die hard socom people for the last 4 months, i know they do not want it. They want s2 hd, or conf on ps5. I just hope there is a tactical shooter from sony that is good and fun. Thats enough for me, something like caliber, or a r6 siege. I still play r6 too and on ps5 it is excellent.
The ps3 is kind of boring, if you could play confrontation with a pc emulator and run in higher frame rate, that game would rock.
Yup, The dog and I are playing some Socom 2, on the ps2 i got cheap. When i had the series S, their online store did not have many xbox, or 360 games. Just this and that and nothing i remembered that i really liked other than fallout and dead space. Lucked out and got a ps3 and now that confrontation is back online WOW. And soon i will play Socom 2 online as well. Plus I can play any ps1, ps2, or ps3 game, digital, or physical copy with my ps4, ps3, and ps2. My tv upscales component 480i and other modes that the ps2 has and it looks great on this tv. Sucks that i could not get a ps5 and play all the games with emulation. Sucks that the Series S has a limited catalog for the S.
PS4, Switch, PS3, PS2.
Very happy now. I tried the emulators on the pc. For some reason i did not care for it. I prefer playing the real hardware. The only way i will buy a ps5 now, is if there is a socom. Or god of war. We shall see, honestly, i want the ps5 slim, not that huge weird console.
I was so excited when the box came. Finally a ps2 again, I gave my last ps2 to Todd Loomis years ago when we were working on lust for blood, i think he gave it to his nephews. I have the slim now. I also bought a HD retrovision Component cable for the ps2. And it looks amazing through it, and that cable is better than most of the 3rd party ones.
Over all i am very happy. Now, once Diana gets here, we can play together like we used to. God i miss her. 🙁
WTF. Seriously. Socom fans were unhappy because socom 4 is not socom. The mechanics were all wrong, bobblehead characters and head shots all over the place, the zoomed in camera and huge characters are what ruined it more than the respawn shit. What about COD? They did that right over and over. The mechanics. If you make a game and change the mechanics, then there is a prb. Socom 2 and Confrontation are similar, cept hit detection is more realistic on Confrontation. The hate for Confrontation was because of the bugs when it launched. It was not stable for 3 months, until they patched it. This is where most of the hate came from. After it ran good, a lot of people played it all the time, then coldfront dlc breathed new life into it, but because they had to patch it so many times it got in the way of the planned dlc. Also because it didn’t sell as big as socom 2, sony moved on. If anything Sony killed socom by expecting it to compete with Call of Duty.
I hope they do a socom title that is like confrontation, and something new, but plays great. r6 Siege proves that tactical shooters are still popular enough. r6 Siege sold 10 million, and has had 70 million players online.
The other part of the fail: Did you ever see a Confrontation AD on tv? I saw socom 1 and 2 ads on TV, but never confrontation. Because sony did not market Confrontation as well as socom 1 and 2, that is why it did so poorly.
The Socom name means the hardcore fans will come out to try it, but you have to make them happy first, because their praise is what will fuel the spread of it. Jaffe is wrong, he blew it with Twisted metal on ps3, and thinks he knows what we the fans want or what we think. Dead wrong.
Also in some of the YouTube videos I have seen, they say the it is all nostalgia. And that the old Socom is out of date. Now that confrontation is back up, let me tell you, its not nostalgia, It plays better than most modern games. It also looks better than a lot of the modern games to me. Dead wrong. Confrontation is amazing still. I wish they had done an HD version with new maps on ps4. But nope….
I just hope the people at Sony give us Socom fans something new. Don’t listen to the naysayers Sony.
This was the only reason I did not buy a ps5 at launch, i had one in my cart minutes after than Sony press thing in November, and did not pull the trigger because no Socom, and also i thought Sony would sell me one direct like their email promised me, which was all BS. Here is some of the rumors about it, i want it to be true, but there is nothing official. I only wish there was some kind of Official announcement of SOCOM, because then for sure i would buy a ps5. I am still pretty pissed that Hhour never came to ps4, and there was no socom on ps4, all they needed to do is confrontation HD with some new maps on ps4 and that would of been amazing, but no. They shut down all the servers. and Hhour is in LALA Land.
If we get a new socom and it plays as well as confrontation, i will be very happy. They should hit me up to write some music for it.. Damn it!
