Will we ever get a new SOCOM on the PSv

10 replies 125 views Edited Nov 24, 2012

 

im a big socom fan, ftb 1 2 and 3 were great on psp, socom series on ps2 was epic and socom confrontation on ps3 was also amazing for what it was.. socom 4 was not a true socom, i'd love to see a revival from Slant 6 or another developer who has a passion for socom and its fans.. so do you think there's a possibility of a new socom coming to vita any time in the future?

I believe Sony closed down the studio that developed the Socom games. But there is no saying that the franchise will return. So it's always possible.

I would love for SOCOM HD to be made for the Viya or PS3. We have all these other HD remakes, but none of SOCOM; which happens to be a very iconic shooter in Sony's history and the first online console 3rd person shooter.

This is why Sony is what pisses me off about Sony. We even had taken up votes for Socom 2 HD on their blog, but of course they turn the blind eye.

If MS can release a Halo Anniversary game for the 360; even w/o them owning Bungie, I'm sure Sony can get a studio to revamp Socom 2 and put it on the PSN store.

Gamble, Microsoft shafted Bungie over the Halo franchise.

Sony does listen, but a lot of planning and financial decisions have to go into these kinds of things.

Thousands of fans wanted a Halo 1 remake, demands were met SHORTLY, things

got done.

 

Sony's had 2 years lol. When you have 100's of thousands of people wanting this; its a quick money maker. Charge $15 and call it a day. Heck, id pay $60 for it. I love my SOCOM, and I need that SOcrack. Plus we're talking about a WELL established franchise. So they won't have a deficit if they did release it. It would be perfect on the Vita.

When they come through on that, they'll be my favorite gaming company. They already have my love and support of the phone division.

If they release that on the Vita or PS3 with online, i will not buy another game. Since 2001 to 2008 ive only played Socom, Madden, and NCAA football.

I wouldn't mind a new but respectable developer taking over Socom. And another for Resistance.

I would play the Resistance for PSP on my Vita if I knew people were not going to use auto lock. That game was just perfect.
