Slant Six Games has released the latest patch for its online tactical shooter SOCOM: Confrontation, offering a remedy for some of the game’s slowdown issues in addition to implementing a few other tweaks.
This latest update is actually an amalgamation of two separate updates, namely v1.40 and v1.41. Said the company: "The 1.40 was intended to support the European release, we combined the 1.40 and the 1.41 together to speed the deployment of the above fixes."
See below for a list of fixes:
·XMB presence - Medley Game information has been abbreviated, displaying all information required to identify the location of the player.
·Late Join 'Hitch' improvements - addresses the pause experienced by players when someone late joins a game.
·Navigating Screens With Large Clans - Slow down issue fixed.
·Increased speed of fade at the beginning of the round.
·Claymores can now be detonated when player is in the prone position.
·Increased countdown timer in Quick Match Pre Game lobby from 20 to 60 seconds.
·Enabled Quick Match team switching.
·Quick Match Ranked, Unranked and Unranked Respawn games, each contains 6 different playlists: 3 8vs8 and 3 16vs16 players.

I'm playing KZ2 now, but I'll download this for later. SOCOM just should have been released around now.

Never heard of this game. Oh wait! Yeah it's the game that came with my bluetooth headset.

It was working great last night with this patch.Let's see how long that lasts.

i bought the new one after the last update, and everything is working quite nicely on it. I'm happy i waited to purchase it.

I've just received my e-mail from GAME saying its on its way. Although I'll probably milk KZ2 before starting this.
Theres still time to delay its release if you want SCEE, go on, another month, you know you want to

Ugh. This patch is 529MB. That's not a patch, that's the rest of the game! This had better fix everything.

It does run quite a bit better now
- 8:59am EDT - March 10th, 2009
I have yet to begin playing this game. Did not know at the time of purchase that it is only played online.
- 9:11am EDT - March 10th, 2009
Lol, ok. I take back my disgust. I just downloaded it and it did seem to fix everything. I'm here to tell you that SOCOM is a solid 8.0 (or more) Game now. It's finally finished.

other games online cant compete with socom, im sorry......

It is in a class by itself. There's no doubt about it. I have been playing Killzone, but I downloaded the 1.41 patch and jumped right into a game to test it out. I know in my heart when the KZ2 ithing is done, I'll be right back on SOCOM. It's just the perfect online team game, period. I like this site's review (and the RE-REVIEW after patch 1.31) of SOCOM, it's the only site that seems to get it.

Friiging huge patch!!!!!!!! Jesus I am going to have to do it tonight when I get home.... Hopefully now I can actually play this thing.....
Nothing like having a $60 game just sit on your shelf and all you can do is look at it....
