Rumors have been circulating over the past few days that Sony was planning to unveil a "surprise sequel," and if today's revelation of SOCOM 4 is said sequel, color us surprised. Fresh off the completion of MAG, the developers at Zipper Interactive have returned to their roots and will be developing the series they've been developing since 2002.

The first screenshots and details were unveiled by Zipper Interactive's Senior Community Manager Jeremy Dunham. The single player campaign will put you in the shoes of an Ops Com who must command a five-man squad to help quell a military uprising in South Asia. The series' highly-regarded multiplayer will return in full force, as Dunham has stated that SOCOM 4 will include 32-player online play.

Fortunately, gamers enjoying Zipper's latest multiplayer shooter won't be left behind, as Dunham made sure to reiterate in the announcement that Zipper is "still fully committed to supporting MAG for a long, long time."

You can see the first images of the game in GamePro US's SOCOM 4 screenshot gallery, and expect a debut trailer for the game tomorrow. MAG players, does this new announcement worry you at all? SOCOM fans, how is this game looking to you?

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
