How can you kill off the SOCOM series like this. Shocking, i still play confrontation to this day and have many friends that also do. It's not even like we can use XLINK Kai for this title as it doesn't support LAN

Sadly the servers probably just don't have enough of a userbase for it to be worth keeping them running. I was gutted when EA shut down the Burnout Revenge servers. Still, life goes on and there'll be more games out there.

 

 I feel for people who've spent a lot of time on any of them, just to have it go in the bin though. It'd be good if on PS4 games went Peer2Peer when the servers are closed.

I agree, but SOCOM confrontation still has a good 2000+ players to this date last time i logged on. It's not just a game it's a series where i have met so many great friends and people from the PS2 SOCOM's right through to Confrontation. It will be a complete shame i will not be able to hop online and catch a good of SOCRACK

Re: Server closure notice: MAG/SOCOM

I have good memories of MAG, it's sad to see it go.

 

I'm surprised Confrontation is going I would have thought that the servers were active enough to keep it going. Hopefully Sony put these servers to good use in the future.

Re: Server closure notice: MAG/SOCOM

They're not being shut down until next year.

I think a lot of people will have moved on to the PS4 by then. :smileywink:
