Golden AK-47 Unlock Through PlayStation HOME
For those of you looking to add another weapon to your arsenal in SOCOM: Confrontation, we've got a special unlock for you coming in April. You can now get the Golden AK-47 by visiting the SOCOM Confrontation spaces (including the new OP-FOR space) in PlayStation HOME. Complete the puzzle in the HOME spaces within the time limit and you will be rewarded with a previously hidden Golden AK-47 that you can use to help bring your team to victory in-game.
New Spawning System for Medley Games
We have heard the community and are working to finish changes to get an improved game spawning system out there for the public. The changes will reflect each medley game type, 4v4 and 8v8. It will reduce these down to one initial room to fit each gametype, and will then spawn a new overflow game once the initial game is 75% full. So in a 4v4 game, once there are 6 players signed up to join the game, a new 4v4 game to join will be made available. This change should also be coming in April.

socom 4=uncharted 2 with military skin
socom 4 looks nothing like socom, or seals, and the cover system promotes even more camping
but yeah, about this AK, went on home no update. Same BS when they announced it before, same BS when they said it would come out soon MONTHS AGO, and same bs now, you cannot get the ak still without cheating.
blog says you can get ak now, **bleep** ever

Despite the negative responses so far, i say thank you for at least trying. These are significant changes, still short of some things we want but an improvement none the less.

I don't think there are too many people that care about Confrontation at this stage in the game. I think people will jus play it until Socom 4 is released. It's a little late to try and gain some ground with this game unless you are will to make serious changes or updates.
