First off don't believe everyone in the Socom community is behind H HOUR, there not. until Lukenbacher fully endorses H HOUR don't expect us to follow. We want Socom2 HD thats all.
Sony should in no way endorse H HOUR...
I don't think you understand what's going on.
Sony owns the rights to the Socom franchise. When they find a competent developer, IF that ever happens, then they will bring another Socom branded fame.
SoF Studios working on H-hour, is an INDEPENDENT company working on the SPIRITUAL SUCCESOR to the Socom series. Sony has NOTHING to do with the game. It is completely crowd funded through Kickstarter. And the thing with indie developers.... They can easily port their game to PS4 thanks in major part to Adam Boyes, making it easier for developers to get their games out there for people to enjoy and experience.
As for a Socom HD, release. Never going to happen. Why? The game servers are shut down, so you'd only be playing single player anyway.... In which multiplayer was the best part about the game.
Just doesn't make sense. Doesn't make good financial sense, and doesn't make good business sense.
You do realize that the people working on H-Hour are some of the people that brought you SOCOM in the first place, right? Namely, one David Sears, who was project lead on SOCOM I and II.
Zipper Interactive nor Slant Six exist anymore (shut down by Sony), so there really is no Sony studio truly 'qualified' to work on a 'SOCOM' game.
But... whatever, I guess.
Sony never bought Slant Six.
First, Sony has everything thing to say about H Hour, it doesn't grace the PS4 without Sony, 2nd H HOUR is very close to violating intellectual property rights, if i can see this, don't think Sony can't. And it's one thing to be a spiritual successor, but it's whole other thing to copy everything from Socom 1 & 2 and that's what H HOUR is Socom.
The deal is Sof doesn't have the resources to really make a game like Socom, and if they fail it will be THE END period for any hope of bringing Socom to life again, and remember what SCEJ said Socom wasn't done, so you know there watching.
isnt the game coming out in 2015?
probly no beta yet
how do you know it sucks?
i might understand if you are a confrontation player
i think there is like 2 types of socom fans
socom 1 and 2 fans
and socom conforntation fans
