Sony Preparing New SOCOM Patches

If you've been playing SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation over the past few days, you're likely well aware of all the issues many players have encountered. Painfully aware, we're willing to bet.

But according to Punch Jump, Sony admits the servers are a little bungled right now, and they're currently working on a new patch to deal with the current problems. They've already released a patch that fixed many of the more severe drawbacks - definitely a good thing - but this one is apparently designed to give the servers more stability during times of particularly high activity. Director of Development at Sony's U.S. game division, Seth Luisi, said the "server environment isn't holding up at peak hours," and that's kinda frustrating for avid players. This game is super popular; Sony says there are over 25,000 users at peak times, with a total of over 100,000 log-ins per day. They're also working on a standard stability patch that should take care of the lingering disconnect, freezing, and Corrupt File errors. You can expect to see that in less than a week, so that's certainly good news.

We'll let you know when they release the patches, and it shouldn't be long before the SOCOM experience solidifies. Look for our review soon!

Good news. They should have done this before the release of the game. Now we got bad reviews from most sites because of it. But those sites should honestly wait till everything gets patched, which should be this week, then give it their full review.

Hopefully they'll stablize all these problems soon... I refuse to buy the game until I am sure that the majority of these errors I've been reading about are gone.

This gen seems plagued with issues that previously belonged only to PC gaming. Perhaps they rushed this title a tad.

Socom is good ol'tactical shooting game. Amazing fun and a top community.

This issues haven't affected me badly. Some game freezes but the majority of the time runs quite well. I wish there were no freezings, but It should be fixed soon.
