Today, we're very excited to unveil the competitive multiplayer features for SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3 for PSP. Continuing in the franchise's tradition of unparalleled multiplayer gaming, SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3 raises the bar on mobile multiplayer gaming.

215w ago - Over the weekend a video surfaced from KingCooler unveiling Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for Sony's PS3 console.
Slated for a November 10, 2009 release, many feel the video below is not yet from a store breaking the street date but simply from either a videogame reviewer or an Infinity Ward employee who has the game.
Those interested can check it out below (while it lasts), and to quote:
"We knew this would happen. It seems one lucky PS3 owner has somehow managed to get a copy of the game, and even unlock a trophy for it.
The shaky video is after the jump, but be prepared to get jealous..."
Also below is a MW2 third-person view video from djplonker via YouTube!
