Ok I know this most likely won't be answered by anyone but I just want to ask anyways and yes, alot of us fans may be jumping the gun by writing off Socom 4 but it seems clear to myself personally that Socom 4 won't be the Socom we want. "We" as in the people who look past the problems in Confrontation and enjoy the game or the people who are still playing Socom on PS2. Regardless if you are a hardcore Socom1/2 player who refuses to play Confrontation because of the issues or whatever I think we can all agree here that the direction Socom 4 is heading makes us a bit uneasy.
We all know what happened. Confrontation was brutal on release. Since that time I will admit that things have improved alot but there are still many problems that exist in the game. People play, people are happy etc etc but at the end of the day this game is far from perfect. After just reading a thread on this exact subject and also thinking this to myself the other day it only makes sense to make a sequal. Im no game devoloper so im not gonna pretend I know ANYTHING about how a game is created etc but im sure having a base to start on is a big help. You guys started from the ground up with Confrontation. There were definitly alot fo things that you needed to do right. People never point out what you guys did right they only point out what you did wrong (which is fair to an extent). If you guys made a sequal I think you would have more time to work on these problems and obviously create or remake old maps.
What I bet your thinking
Why would we make a sequal to a game that is highly regarded as crap by the gaming community? Regardless of how the game actually sold the reviewers tore it apart and fans alike. If we spent more money, resources etc etc there would be a good chance the game could flop.
So let's cut the BS you guys don't wanna spend a bunch of money fixing and patching Socom Confrontation anymore. You made your money the game can be bought cheap used now the profit has already reached it's peak. So why not just release a sequal which would basicly be what we wanted from the begining? I don't even care anymore ill but it. Rip us off im past the point of being mad I just want a perfect refined Socom already.
SO MY QUESTION IS
If we managed to get X amount of sigs to show that the community is still interested and to show that we will support the project would there ever be a possibility of Confrontation 2?
If anything it sounds like an easy money maker on your side I just don't understand why this wouldn't be a possibity. Socom could become similar to Call of Duty. IW worked on 1, 2 then Treyarch made 3 IW went back to 4 Treyarch to 5 etc etc etc. Zipper and Slant Six could share the series and appeal to both the hardcore Socom veterans and the new generation of gamers who want stuff like a cover system.
Like I said in the begining I bet no one will answer me but please Kudos if you agree or like the idea and maybe we could get a typical response like "there are no future plans blah blah typical suit talk".

If they fixed the crap that's wrong with it, I'd buy Confrontation 2. I don't particularly hate the first one either, though I've loved each and every PS2 SOCOM to date, so maybe I'm just not a HARDCORE VET, ha ha!

some people think the game is crap becuase most of us have been playing this game for years and we are just to damn good at it for a noob to try and own us^^
even though socom was riddled with glitches there are very very very few now in all of the vast majority of the map lol personally if u wanted to count ( take not gamers ) that there still exists a glitch where u can get above the maps in what ive seen people do in crossroads and in entrapment
but i here that the developers are already working on these
so all in all its a awsome idea

I don't know why they wouldn't. The only reason i can think of is that they don't think anyone would be interested in buying the game but if we show support insted of negitive feedback all day long we might be able to get a fixed, polished sequal.

Slant six should just make a shooter series all on its own. Socom is zippers baby and i dont see them sharing it like COD. lets be real a petition for S:C2 because S4 is going to have a cover system, how does that sound? all of the Socomers corner camp at times anyways. this would just give it a more of a realestical feel instead of gliding up against the wall every time u wanna come out and pop some one.

I'm up for it- like I've said in another thread- I'm sure Slant Six learned their mistakes, and are much better on the PS3 than before. So why not?
