    here is a bit of Socom 2 news taken from the IGN forums
    Will be in some PS@ magazine next month.

    Quick SOCOM 2 article sum up.

    -Larger Levels some set in Albania, Brazil, Algeria, and Russia
    -Better Graphics
    -Online Ranking Ladders
    -Buddy/Ignore Lists
    -Progressive Scan supported
    -Spectator Mode
    -Voice Chat in game lobbies
    -Better security to prevent cheaters/glitchers/codebreaking
    -Socom servers will still be up and running with Socom 2 getting it's own improved servers.
    -Artillery implacements
    -Landmines that can be deactivated if found before stepped on.
    -Two new online game modes BREACH and ESCORT
    - relased date = nov 2003
    Oh one more thing = FREE!

    I will now fall into a catatonic state in which I do nothing else but dream of playing socom 2. Nov. can't get here fast enough. [​IMG]

    Easy purchase for me. Above all else Sony and Zipper Interactive need to make sure the servers are as stable as can be before release. Even more importantly, cheating/glitches needs to be a big one on the priority list of things to prevent (which it appears it already is[​IMG] )

    Looks like the Socom Clan will be a making a return. I'll definitely be reporting for duty [​IMG].

    The game is free? How? Is it like a "buy the Network Adapter, get this game free" thing?

    Well, Sony's making it, so I guess I assumed there would be no subscription fee anyway. Oh well.

    Cool. It's been some time since I've played SOCOM, but look forward to part 2. I had a blast playing online with everyone here.

    ...or the "All your base are belong to us" sexy chick sample that you get maybe 1 out of every 100 team victories.

    O you know I'm in. The job that I had last summer, I realize that I don't care about, so I will be up until the early hours of the morning play Socom 2. Plus it gives me a chance to destroy travis on another game.[​IMG]

    Forgot all about that. That was cool when you got it. Always wondered what the victory conditions were that got that response.
