Zipper Interactive confirms SOCOM 4; still committed to MAG

Sony's mystery sequel announcement has been revealed



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?

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
