Confrontation Update 1.20 Today

Despite the initial negative feedback, we maintain that SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation is one of the better multiplayer experiences to be had, and that belief becomes more valid with every passing update. Here's another one, as announced over at the official forums for the game.

Update 1.20 will release today at 12:00 GMT/UTC (8 a.m. EDT, 5 a.m. PDT, 1 p.m. BST, 9 p.m. JST), and it will fix many of the more significant issues that gamers are still experiencing. The list of updates looks like this:

  • Fixed many issues which would cause the game to crash, hang, disconnect and exit to the PS3 XMB.
  • Fixed an issue which would cause large numbers of players in a high player count game to be simultaneously disconnected.
  • Fixed an issue which would cause players to be invincible.
  • Fixed a physics issue which would cause players to occasionally "warp" around on the map.
  • Fixed an issue where a "corrupt save data" message would be incorrectly displayed after updating the game.
  • Fixed some player model issues related to team swapping.
  • Client/server optimization.
  • Fixed an issue where the scope camera had an incorrect offset from the barrel of the gun while prone or leaning/peeking."

Much thanks to the team who has remained diligent in attacking the prevailing problems, and we expect a consistent upkeep from here on out. If you're looking for a great online multiplayer experience and are confident that Sony can keep the Network issues to a minimum, than we have to recommend SOCOM. And remember, that new Bluetooth headset is a very sweet accessory, and eons better than the one that came with Warhawk last year.

w00t w00t. It wouldnt be a Socom game without those issues lol and trust me, I keep buying everyone at launch. Their amazingly fun games so to those who like to play as a team, instead of a mindless head shot spree game, Socom is the game for you

This is awesome. The game is good. The only things bothering me are things that are being fixed with this patch.

Just bring on the map packs Slant 6!

I hope the LBP issues get fixed as fast as these Socom issues. I had to sign off of PSN to make it not lag. I'm not talking about in game lag. I'm talking about menu lag on the story mode. Like, select a level, wait for 45 second freeze, play, beat level, wait for 2 minute freeze, failed to upload high score. Pretty annoying. I know they'll fix it soon though.

Sounds like how GTA4 was because of the high server loads. I know it was fine before the servers came online.

Don't have it, but I want that headset. I'm thinking the guys over at Slant Six fed their moguai after midnight cuz they seem to have some gremlins on the premises.

Wah-ho! Never got near enough gameplay to experience all that crazy phenomena! I only got one full game my first week. So I hung that one up to dry; its still face-down in the corner. Imma wait for another week or two...
