Sony Gamers Day 2007: SOCOM Confrontation

May 17 // Robert Summa    @summaaftershow

The game I'm sure many first-person shooter and Sony-related FPS fans have been dying to hear about was eventual appearance of the beloved SOCOM franchise on the PlayStation 3. So, of course, it's coming to the system. Duh, no brainer, the thing prints money for Sony.

While we never got to see the game in person, in action, we did get a trailer and some pictures. Better than nothing, I'd say. Check out the details of this 32-person multiplayer extravaganza after the jump and enjoy the photos in our gallery.
