Sony has confirmed that tactical shooter SOCOM: Confrontation will be released in the UK on March 13, followed by a general European release on March 18.
In addition to the Blu-ray release, the game will also be available to download via PlayStation Network on March 19. The game has been a long time coming to PAL regions, having been available in North America since October of last year.
Despite a couple of dodgy moments, we came away suitably impressed with Slant Six Games’ efforts, as you can see from our review here.

I don't get why people are hating on this game so much. I mean if you played it since the beta then yeah but if you haven't played it lately you don't know how much better the game has become.

Anyone else think its useless to release this after Killzone 2?
Sure its a TPS and not a FPS like Killzone 2 but most of the shooter fans on PS3 will be playing Killzone 2 and i imagine the SOCOM servers being low populated.
Correct me if im wrong it was just a thought i was having.

Sure hope the EU version is better than the North American version. Every patch possible and the game still bl*ws. To many crybabies about what weapons they get killed with, etc, etc. Hurry up Killzone, RE5 & Uncharted

Now they can fill up their used video game stores with this one, like all the ones here in the States.

I have actually been playing this since the patch, and it's fairly stable. Most people don't have the patience to work as a team and call out kills for teammates. Luckily I found a good clan to play with. It still has a decent amount of bugs, but nothing compared to when it first came out. I will play KZ2, but I've always loved the strategy of Socom. Not perfect, but playable.

if you havent played this game you should probably shut up. Its really good and its diffeent enough from killzone to not be replaced by it. Its highly realistic and totally different gameplay. But like i said, try it first.

This is one shooter that is not for me. Like I always say two in the head you know they're dead.
