Slant Six recently released a gameplay trailer for SOCOM: Confrontation
, the series' maiden voyage onto Sony's current-gen home console. It looks faithful to the series' frantic, tactical roots on the PlayStation 2, though this trailer
doesn't do a great job of showing off the game's new features and gameplay improvements
. The graphics, though significantly gussied-up since its public unveiling
last year, still could use a bit of polish -- though we'd be willing to sacrifice a bit of gussy
for a steady framerate during the many 32-man multiplayer matches we'll be participating in. You can find out if it really does pay to be a winner
drops on October 14.
