SOCOM 3 announced for Fall 2005

SOCOM 3 will now support the use of vehicles and boast level that are six times larger than before. Locations include Morocco, Poland, and Banglades. Players will be able to swim should they need to. Additionally, the AI has been dramatically improved, so enemies will take cover, shoot around corners, and use actual flanking techniques. The often-requested checkpoints will be thoroughly available during single-player missions.

Vehicles!

I'm sure it will be a fun game to play and I will be happy to purchase it.

The graphics are very uninspired and virtually no improvement over SOCOM II.  I am surprised that they are putting so little effort into updating the look of the game.

With the first two supporting 480p there may not be much if anything left  for Zipper to improve on with the PS2 hardware limitations.

I wonder if they have figured out how to do chat without having to hit a button and only get 10 seconds to say what you need.  Live may have some problems with voice clarity, but at least you can do it hands free.  (TWSS)   :)

I can't wait until PSP/PS3 when I can actually play a Sony game online.

Bryan: Those are only screenshots. Just because they haven't been enhanced like so many Xbox screenshots doesn't mean it will look bad. Let's wait and see. Besides, gameplay's the thing.

Mr. James: You're probably right.

Jeff: They supposedly do it that way to be "realistic." I only wish SOCOM chat was as good as Live chat. "Everybody plug and unplug." Believe me, restricting you to ten seconds of blather is a good thing.

Mike: Just buy a damn PSTwo already.

No!  Too much other shit to buy.  That would use 65% of my PSP budget.  :)

Besides, I know what would happen.  I'd buy a new PSTwo (or fix my current PS2) to play online, spending over $100, and we'd still spend 98% of our online time playing Xbox.
