I ask this out of curisoity.
I know a lot of people are keen for an HD remake of SOCOM 1 and 2, I presume with online multiplayer intact (becareful what you wish for, online features were cut from Splinter Cell), but think about the wider audience and how a game based on SOCOMs ideals can appeal to the modern gamer.
Even if it's just returning maps and modes, what would you like to see from the franchise?

Well I would say a game mainly designed for clans and team work. A game rewards players for working as a team....
Things that i would love to see:
A game primarilly designed for team based gaming, a dynamic objective system, a wide variety of maps!
*** I will post more thoughts as they come to me ***

bin respwans across the board because lets be fair if you want cod youd buy cod and if you like respawns socom might not be your game anyway ;o)
private match option/lobbies for true clan support
really tight netcode even if it only means 5 vs 5
get rid of xp and all that crap
all guns should be unlocked for EVERYONE from day 1
only unlockables should be customizations which DO NOT affect gameplay i.e. color of gun, diff uniforms e.t.c.
lobbies should be searchable a la rainbow six black arrow
NO party chat! party chat is slowly killing the experience of meeting new people/possible friends
Fast mute option
No communication possible if youre dead
the list goes on but im sure you get the picture ;o)

A proper clan ladder system that works - like a built in gamebattles ladder.
Fix hit detection.
KEEP the same online structure - browsing servers and dedicated servers are a must for any SOCOM. No COD style P2P where you can't choose the maps.
Regular updates to fix bugs.
Custom button mapping.

Not that it's ever likely to happen, but my ultimate SOCOM would be a SOCOM MMO.
Not much would change from the core game play now, but there would be a serious and robust match making and tournament feature, as well as an adequate introduction to to the game.
Updates and content would be more regular and not cease after a measly 6-12 month.
That's my ultimate SOCOM.
