Would depend on the price and distribution media...and if they had multiplayer in it and not just the campaign.

Are you talking about a remake built from the ground up on PS3 or a PS2 port to the PSN with upconverted graphics?

Well in that case sure everyone loves a pipe dream and would go for it.

Reasonably I would expect to see the first socom's campaign upscaled and distributed on the PS store at best, by some freak chance it might also have MP and connect to the current PS2 servers.

I'm talking about using the gameplay engine of the ps2, socom one and two and make it work on the ps3. then eliminate every glitch / cheats / exploit possible and throw that on a blu ray for worldwide sales...

I think if they did an HD remake that offered the SP campaigns of the first two games as well as the 22 maps originally from S2 (but with the S1 versions of the maps fans liked better such as Rat's Nest, Abandonded, Death Trap, etc.) , and they did like Halo Anniversary using a hybrid engine to get the Socom gameplay down but with HD quality grapchis, the game would absolutely blow the doors off of any of the broader market Socom games Zipper had done. It will never be a COD seller but it would definitely bring in a lot of Socomers who had given up on the idea that we would ever see such a Socom again.

The main question is whether Zipper can swallow the pride and not be afraid to out perform their broader market games. By resisting the remake they can continue to claim that the old Socoms couldn't sell to defend every future change they make in the series, that's a luxury they don't want to lose cause this company hates making games for the consumers and just wants to make a game they like to play in the office.

What I would like to see is for another dev to be assigned the project who actually enjoys the challenge of trying to recapture what Zipper has lost who will be focused on trying to recreate what Socom was rather then trying to overhaul it into something else (which is most likely what Zipper would do even in a remake). After all these years of them ignoring the fans and saying those games couldn't sell today it would be kind of fun to watch a new dev come in and rack in 2 million + in sales while Zipper works for 4 years on another 500 k selling game, realizing they lost out on the chance to make the better selling remake and that's when it will finally sink in that they should have listened.

Sig: Socom 1 and 2 best games I've played on any console.

since socom 3 used a different engine I would prefer they stick with the 2 first games who used the same gamplay engine.

I would pay 60$ any day for both games that cost me over 250$ back in the day (which include the 40gb hdd, a couple of mics and DS2)
