SOCOM Plagued By Errors, Glitches
Sometimes, it takes a little while to get all the kinks worked out in a multiplayer online game. Such seems to be the unfortunate case with the recently released SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation.
Many beta testers complained of major technical glitches and it appears those issues have carried over to the final version. If you check around the Internet, many new Confrontation owners are complaining of game and room disconnects, Corrupt File errors, crashing and freezing, and a variety of annoying error messages. Perhaps one of the most disturbing problems centers on the update you need to download when you go to play the game: for some, the "Corrupt File" message pops up after downloading the update, and...well, that's kinda the exact opposite of what an "update" is supposed to do. We're hoping Sony can remedy these significant drawbacks over the next few days, and we understand online-based titles are constant works-in-progress. But this doesn't change the fact that many new SOCOM owners are irritated at the lack of reliability, and they have every right to be upset.
Anyway, we'll keep you updated on the issue, as we expect Sony to provide us with a patch to help erase some of the problems. Look for that soon, and in the meantime, feel free to chat it up around here.
