I defiantly see where everyone is coming from. I myself have been playing socom 1 ever since it came out and I am beyond disappointed/upset right now. The ONLY reason I bought KZ3 was to get the socom beta out of it and I sold that garbage game right away. Not only does Zipper not care about their long time loyal fans. They ruining the entire series. They just keep digging themselves deeper. First they let Slant Six **bleep** up Confrontation. Then they say them, Zipper, is gonna make the new socom 4 and it would be out November of 2010. Then it's February of 2011. Now it's finally April of 2011. Private Beta? It might be a good idea..for a week..and then bring out the Beta from PS Plus and KZ3 at the same time. But no. Con us out of $60 **bleep**ING dollars to get "early access" to the socom beta when we can wait and get it for free and still pretty much get the same amount of playing time. This is a giant joke. **bleep** this **bleep** way to start out on ruining the next socom generation. Why don't you go make it more like CoD like ya already did ya idiots.
To add to my previous post....the playstation plus members pay $60 a year for their subscription.....we paid $60 for the early access beta.....we paid the same amount so why can't we get the beta on the same day? The fact of the matter is, it's the principle of the matter. We feel like we got conned into buying a game we either didn't want or need. For those of us who knew a year ago that Socom 4 was coming out soon, have spent countless hours on here chatting, looking for information, bsing about past socoms and being patient waiting for a game that in our eyes surpasses all others. And after dealing with the crappy game Confrontation was, we can't wait for the light at the end of the tunnel.
We are just looking to be treated fairly. Yes we are impatient to play the game, but that impatience comes from the misguided illusion that we were going to get to play the game sooner(for those of us who bought KZ3). What a ripoff!!
Wow what a waste of money buying kz3 to get the beta. Dont know why they are doing a private beta cause they aint going to implement any suggestions until 2 months down the road because Sony QA takes that long to test patches. Why not let everyone in at once to test server loads. As for bomb squad what a waste of a mode, give us back s1 and s2 demolition. Very pissed off, first kz3 online problems now this. Sony really dropping the ball.
WHAT EVER HAPPENED 2 WHEN YOU PRE-ORDER A GAME AND YOUR THE FIRST TO PLAY THE BETA?? STR8 GARBAGE !!! I don't know what IM more pissed @ not being able to play the beta for another month or the fact that I was strong armed into buying killzon3 or bcuz I purchased a ps3 just for socom or because of this "private" beta issue or bcuz IM already a subscriber of psn plus or bcuz I purchased so called socom game named confrontation when that first came out !!
well the good thing im a ps+ member and also have killzone soo thats nt problem but i will be on spring break that week of 22nd and i wont be home, booooooooooo. oh well atleast i can play when i get home. thank you
