here is a bit of Socom 2 news taken from the IGN forums
Will be in some [email protected] 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

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. :D

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:emoji_thumbsup: )

Looks like the Socom Clan will be a making a return. I'll definitely be reporting for duty ;).

Count me in. This game is one of my favorite games for the PS2. No brainer pickup for me...

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.:D

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

It will be very different for me next time around. Last August I was working nights until about 1 AM. I would get home and play til 5 or 6 in the morning. I've since switched to an 8-5 day job and will miss those all night marathons.

It will be interesting to see all the improvements Zipper makes having seen what XBL has to offer.
