So those of you PS3 owners who bought Socom Confrontation on release and never played it again, get ready! The 1.30 patch is out and ready for install. Coming in at 526 mb it will take a few minutes, but if it delivers on its many promises this patch could bring Socom Confrontation back to the for front of gaming.

Patch 1.30 is set to include the highly wanted prone dive, it will list your room under your name on xmb so friends can find you. It also has a fully updated lefty control, d-pad lean and server stability. They mentioned the addition of quick match and party mode (which were seen in the beta), oh yeah and a little something called Trophies!

So for all our Socom fans and trophy whores out there, put this back in your disc drive and get ready! See you online.

  1. So yeah the patch is out, and the game still flops, looking forward to Killzone 2. Can’t wait to get that one!

    ‘I’m sure you buy games for it, but the majority of eeryvone else who’s bought one doesn’t'Give up with this argument. It’s been proved false.While attach rate is an approaching-meaningless figure (if your hardware sells well, attach rate goes down), it might still be instructive here to remember that Wii attach rate for first 23 months or whatever it was, as reported recently right here, was right in between the other two systems. The ‘majority’ of Wii owners buy slightly more games than the ‘majority’ of PS3 owners, and slightly fewer than 360 owners. That’s all. There is no big difference.Have to admit I’m not quite sure what games most people are buying at the moment other than Wii Fit and Mario Kart… (Of course, to sustain those attach rates, most people only need to buy a game every few months. Personally I haven’t bought a retail game since Mario Kart. Lots of WiiWare, though.)As for third-parties abandoning Wii, er, no. They were late to get with the programme; how long as it been since Wii domination over either other systems during this generation was a sure thing? For that matter, it’s only fairly recently that the stats look like Wii is probably going to outsell both other consoles combined – relevant given that PS3/60 is essentially a single platform, which at the moment has a userbase higher than Wii.Despite the user base I’m not saying Wii will ever have as many high-quality third party games as PS3/60 but it is still going to get plenty. 14 out of 29 million-sellers on Wii so far are third-party – including some top quality games and some, er, not so top quality games. On PS3 there are only 12 third-party million-sellers; third parties having more success on Wii? Who’d have thought, but it’s true. (Add in 360, and you get a different story, which probably holds even if correcting for the system’s longer lifetime. See first sentence of this paragraph.)@LBP sales, did anyone expect more? That seems like a respectable success.
