SOCOM: Confrontation European Release Details Discovered
SCEA has already revealed the release details for SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation, but now, it seems we have the European information as well.
According to European gaming site LivePlay3, the online military shooter will launch on October 17, which is only three days after the North American release. And if the translation is correct, the game will be available on both the PlayStation Store and on standard Blu-Ray disc; both versions will release on the 17th. The Store version and the Blu-Ray copy without the headset will retail for 39.00 Euros while the Blu-Ray version with the official Sony headset will carry a sticker price of 59.00 Euros. Also, Trophy support will - not surprisingly - be included, so all the release details seem to be mostly in line with the U.S. information. That's a good thing, too, because European gamers have been getting the short end of the stick with certain titles in past years. Although recently, the truly big-name games have enjoyed worldwide simultaneous releases. This isn't exactly simultaneous, but it's close.
Warhawk was the first truly great online-only experience for the PlayStation 3, but Confrontation could give it a run for its money. There are already plenty of SOCOM followers out there after the PS2 generation, so it has a leg up on the competition... Let's just hope it turns out to be a very worthy multiplayer extravaganza.
