*Legion*'s SOCOM: Confrontation lust thread

I picked up Qore ep. 1 and it was a decent buy for 2.99. The video was good, nice PS3 theme, and eventual access to the beta, which still hasn't released. Hopefully we'll get some more news at E3 next week.

FINALLY!

"I'm happy to be able to share information on the SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation Public Beta.

When does it start?
The SOCOM Confrontation Public Beta will start on September 1st and end on September 30th; a whole month of SOCOM goodness.

How to Get In?
There are two ways to get into the SOCOM: Confrontation Public Beta

GameStop Preorder Campaign
As some of you may have noticed, we have started an exclusive preorder Public Beta campaign with GameStop. If you preorder SOCOM: Confrontation at GameStop, not only will you be able to access the SOCOM: Confrontation Public Beta on day 1 but you will also be able to share the code you receive from Sony PlayStation with two friends as well. SOCOM is all about team work and what better way to encourage team work than to make it easy for you and a couple of friends to get online in the Public Beta. We want you to spread the word about SOCOM and share the experience with your friends, so get down to your local GameStop and pick up your voucher or pre-order here. This offer is good if you pre-order with GameStop either in-store or online.

QORE™ presented by the PLAYSTATION®Network
If you downloaded the June issue of QORE, you, too, will be able to participate. You will be able to download the SOCOM: Confrontation Public Beta from within the application starting on September 8th and play through to September 30th.

The Fine Print
This should be obvious, but you must have a PSN account in order to download and participate in the SOCOM: Confrontation Public Beta. You can sign up for a PSN account online.

This information only applies for North America. Details about the SOCOM: Confrontation Public Beta in other parts of the world will be announced by the regional Sony Computer Entertainment offices.

Let the Games Begin!"

I just got my pre-order in and picked up the code. 9/1/08 can't come soon enough.

Gamestop beta codes have arrived! I just got a call from my local Gamestop that my pre-order codes are there for me to pick-up. However they said the beta probably won't start till the end of August. But I see the 93 has stated the official dates.

Well it's even less now!...HOW about 3 DAYS. Anyway, this was posted from a rep on the SOCOM site:

'...
Seven days til the Public Beta kicks off.

What's your plan? Taking off work? Did you quit your job? Call up a babysitter? Prepare a fort in the front room near your PS3? Let the family know that you're gonna be in-country for a while and to just leave dinner nearby?

I've got some “down to the wire” beta info for you. I checked with the team and the beta is going to be available for download on Monday, September 1st. It's going to be a couple hundred megs under two gigs, so download times may vary according to your connection.

After that, it's on, right? M4s and Noob Tubes and Claymores galore. I expect everyone to know Crossroads inside and out by the end of Wednesday, and to have code names setup for every nook and cranny by Thursday.

Have you guys gotten the email yet? I registered my code from Gamestop over 2 weeks ago and got nothing. I checked a few forums and it sounds like they still haven't gotten these out. WTF?

And, are we really the only 3 people in the Goodjer Universe that give a sh*t about Socom - arguably one the greatest tactical third-person shooters of all-time? So sad...

Oh boy...so much for the beta on Monday.

"Well, I've got some good and not so good news. The good news is that we are still on track to delivering a kick-ass experience come October. The bad news is that because we are working so hard to ensure the final product is fantastic, we've decided to push back the Public Beta date just a few days in order to bump up the experience even more. So, the new launch date for the Public Beta is now Friday, September 5th (QORE members will start the following Friday, September 12).

The other good news is that we are not cutting down the length of the Public Beta one bit. It will still run for a full month - from 9/5 to 10/5 - so you and your clanmates can still practice as long as you want and then be ready to go for the full game later in October.

Myself, my team and Slant Six are burning the midnight oil to ensure this game is the best it can possibly be for you guys. We completely understand it’s hard to wait when you haven't had a chance to play it yet but, rest assured, the wait will be worth it. If you haven't done it already, you can pre-order the game from GameStop® in the US to get into the Public Beta (EB Games™ for our brethren to the North). Make sure to bring along 2 extra friends once you register and get the email promo code from us; that code will let them in too. You're not going to get another Public Beta out there that will give you and your squad-mates so much access."

Best,
Seth

I've not received any email yet.

Also, I have a friends list of at least 8 GWJ folks that all showed when this game was announced as an upcoming release. So we have a good crew, even if not all show at one time.

Thanks too for the update of the beta starting next Friday. Good and bad news for sure.

Anyone hear of anything yet? Nothing on Socom.com. Supposedely starts tomorrow sometime. I'm eager to get to play alittle of it before I have to leave town on the 10th and not back till the 18th.

I'll be in the beta starting the 12th. Also I think the Qore vs. Pre-order beta stuff is absolute bull-crap. I refuse to pre-order the game to get in the beta a week earlier when the beta is the only reason I bought Qore in the first place. Bad enough they told if you buy Qore you get into the beta 3 FREAKING MONTHS AGO and then never mentioned any timing until now. But then to screw us over by saying oh yeah you don't get into the beta as soon as pre-orders is absolute crap. Anyways see you guys next week.

IT'S ALMOST FRIDAY

Gathered up a bunch of games to trade-in to help pay for PS3 number two. Wife's looking forward to SOCOM (and LBP).

The last update is that the Beta will kick off as scheduled tomorrow but no one knows if it's 12:01am or 11:59pm. I'll post later with any more news...

I haven't played since the first SOCOM, and I loved it then. With so many games in the backlog, and coming up, I do hope to pick this one up sometime soon. Count me in as a SOCOM supporter within a few weeks of it's release.
I loves me some tactical combat.

Update from socom.com:

SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation Public Beta goes live tomorrow!

We apologize to everyone for the inconvenience of the SOCOM: Confrontation Public Beta delay. However, I am happy to say that everything has now been worked out and the SOCOM: Confrontation Public Beta will go live in North America tomorrow for anyone who has preordered at GameStop/EB GAMES.

Assuming you've already registered, here is what to expect. At around 10am Pacific Daylight Time, e-mails containing the SOCOM: Confrontation Public Beta PSN codes will start going out in bursts. The e-mails will start arriving at e-mail in-boxes throughout the day. The e-mail will be sent to the PSN login e-mail address you provided when you registered for the SOCOM: Confrontation Public Beta. To redeem the SOCOM: Confrontation Public Beta PSN code, use the following steps:

Enter the SOCOM: Confrontation Public Beta code which you received in the e-mail.
Click “Continue.”
The download will be available on the next screen.
Redeem and download your own SOCOM: Confrontation Public Beta client first, then give the code to two other friends.

I look forward to seeing you all on-line in the SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation Public Beta.

I need to reserve this today! I'm looking forward to the headset as well looks like PS3 is finally getting some good equipment. I've been jonesen for some Socom for a while now.

GIVE ME MY CODE

Maybe you entered the wrong email. Just use my code instead.

I've still not got mine. Maybe they delayed giving them out because of the following post at socom.com:

'...

Due to overwhelming demand for the SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation Public Beta, we are experiencing load related issues. These issues are causing abnormal latency, disconnects, long load times, login errors and community features such as clans and stats not functioning correctly (or at all).

We are doing everything we can to resolve these issues as quickly as possible and you should see some improvements progressively over the next couple of days. However, we do not expect to have the issues completely resolved until close to the end of next week.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

SOCOM: Confrontation Online Team
