SOCOM: so close, yet ... so far
Sometimes being a PS3 news blogger can be a tough ole life. When we're not contacting hyper-busy studios for answers to burning questions or juggling jobs, families and, believe it or not, playing games, we also sometimes have to be the bearer of (consecutive) bad news.
First "Life with PlayStation" (below) gets bumped and now the SOCOM : Confrontation public beta seems to have taken a wrong-turn somewhere and will be a little late to the party. Seth Luisi from SCEA has posted on the PlayStation blog that the Public Beta will now kick-off on Friday, September 5th with QORE members getting their squad-based freak-on a week later on the 12th.
Seth promised there is in fact oil being burned around the hour of midnight and the reason for the delay is simply to make the game "the best it possibly can be." Oh, ok, if you put it that way.
Access to the public beta is still open (in the U.S.) by pre-ordering at GameStop. You'll even get an extra couple of codes for friends to fight over.
