Confrontation Beta Kicks Off Today

Those of you all amped up for the SOCOM: Confrontation beta were probably disappointed to learn that it had been delayed past its expected start date of September 1. However, the team now says they've worked out all the kinks, and things are all set to kick off today.

According to the game's official site, they "apologize to everyone for the inconvenience" of the delay, but the action goes live today in North America for PlayStation 3 owners who have already pre-ordered the game at GameStop. If you've already done that, you have the proper instructions for getting into this public beta, and it's really quite a simple procedure. At around 10 a.m. PT, "e-mails containing the SOCOM: Confrontation Public Beta PSN codes will start going out in bursts." For all the relevant information concerning the beta testing, you can head on over to the Confrontation website and read through the available information. They've got you covered on just about all fronts, so as of today, your special pre-launch testing time with the promising multiplayer title will begin.

SOCOM: Confrontation should arrive on October 14, and you can pick it up with the very sweet PlayStation Bluetooth headset for the price of $59.99. If you want more on that headset, check out the "behind the scenes" details that SCEA just revealed.

Is there something wrong with the game that I don't know about? Seems like everyone just wants the headset. Thought the game was going to be awesome, or is it still?

I think alot of people see the headset as a bonus.

But those who are buying it just for the headset will be pleasantly suprised when they come to find they have one of the best ps3 titles to date with their headset ;)

I've been a Socom player since 02 and Confrontation is the game that excites me more in all 08.

As long as I am not in the US, I will buy the game on the PSStore only to get it on launch day.

I'm pretty sure that people who are going to buy this game for the headset never played a Socom game before.

Another time I will get headset, I'm not in need of one right now (I have 3)

I just got and email calling it a demo rather than a beta. "You have been invited to take part in the limited multiplayer demo of SOCOM: Confrontation on PLAYSTATION®3".
Btw, i'm in the EU.

Socom has always had bad graphics. Period. Go play a game with good graphics if you care so much.
