Interessante uitspraak van ontwikkelaar Zipper Interactive vandaag, de beste mannen beweren namelijk dat SOCOM 4 de eerste echte SOCOM voor de PS3 wordt. Hiermee maken ze een klein beetje het eerdere deel, Confrontation op de PS3, belachelijk. Men heeft ontzettend veel geleerd van hun eerdere game, MAG, die achteraf toch wel lichtelijk een flop bleek te zijn. MAG was vrij snel vergeten bij iedereen en men stapte al snel weer over naar Call of Duty, Medal of Honor en Battlefield. SOCOM 4 ligt in april dit jaar in de winkels en onze preview van de game kun je hier lezen.

“You know, that’s their [Slant Six’s] game,” said Jones. “I mean, we really have been focused on SOCOM 4 and doing our own thing. I think, for the franchise, SOCOM 4 is the real first SOCOM on the PS3.”

“We’ve perfected that technology, and we’re able to route a ton of players and get them into games super-quickly,” he said. “We learned a lot about what kind of objectives are necessary, what number, how to assign them, [and] how they [worked] with larger groups of players in MAG.

“Thank God for MAG. Because we know what SOCOM is, and we’ve done it for a long time, and I think we’ve done it really well. But in adding a lot of the new elements that we did, I think we looked to titles that we’ve developed internally … and said, ‘What are they doing that players have really latched on to, that has made the game better for them?’ And [we] looked to incorporate some of those elements as well.”
