291w ago - I downloaded a video of Socom Confrontation from HardGame2.com and submitted it to YouTube because you can't stream it from their Web site. Confrontation looks very smooth, fluid and action packed.
We have been posting a lot of Confrontation coverage recently because we believe this game deserves to be in every PS3. Take a look at the Socom Confrontation screenshots we posted yesterday.

297w ago - New details from Electronic Gaming Magazine:
-You can roll or underhand a grenade with real physics
-You can lean your guy with the six-axis instead of the d-pad
-There is proximity chat
-Your clan can talk via open chat, but you can L2 to chat to everyone on your team. Or if you have proximity chat then you chat with who ever is around you.
-Audio has changed. Sounds around a corner sound muffled.
-There is now a run/sprint mode. You can run/sprint but you can't shoot and your gun will not be accurate after running. So basically just use this too avoid snipers.
-Tilt with the six-axis can be tweaked for sensitivity
-There are exploding barrels and cars.
-View distance is big, so no more fog like SOCOM 2
-Smoke looks dark gray
-They talk about the 3rd person view. They said because the new widescreen TVs have a different ratio, there was too much space on each side of the classic view.
-"Sony's Seth Luisi says, "Because it was more centered towards 4:3 TVs, and now going to 16:9, we have a lot more area off to the sides."
-You can go up on roofs.
