That did take awhile that's why I started as soon as I got home from work and then when I finished eating supper it was done. The download didn't take long at all for me, but it probably will for you guys, the servers are getting hammered right now. Even when I first got on every single server was basically full, actually I can't even get back on right now, it was running so good too. I never got to try a new map either, only Frostfire and Desert Glory which were both awesome.

Also, I love the fact that when you pair the headset, you don't need to unpair your previous BT headset. This means that when one is out of juice, just swap, select and go.

But damn this installation is taking a long time to even start.

Am I the only one that is experiencing this?

install for me took a little over an hour, thats including DL'ing the patch.

Now that I'm online I'm having some trouble getting games to start. EX. everyone will be checked and game does not start.

Also , when I join a room, I get booted out and it says I was disconnected

After the hammering I took when playing Warhawk with you guys?

You know what they say about revenge....

Edit:

Is anyone able to get into the servers right now? I keep getting the "Failed to Login to Servers" as well as my "data is corrupt"

That wasn't me doing the hammering...I'm always very gentle with new players (ok, maybe I had a mallet ).

Update done, went to fire up the game and it said my game save was corrupt. I exit the game, delete the game save a fire back up. It loads up fine, goes to a step where it's trying to connect with the servers and fails. This puts me back to main "start" screen.

I'm assuming they are having some launch day issues.

Edit: No, I can't get in either :-)

Yeah, might be server overload at the moment...

I could always open and fire-up Dead Space.

But damn I wanna test out the MIC. Feels weird as my Jawbone fit so perfectly.

Edit:
Now I can't even get on the network... Just stays at "Initializing Network" and then that fails.

Yep back down again, I just got kicked off mid-game.

I'm loving the mic, but all I got to compare it to is my old USB headset I had since SOCOM II.

Just poked my head in over at the playstation forums and is seems that the servers are just maxed out. The suggestion is the keep trying and sooner or later you'll get in.

I almost picked up dead space too, but just got bioshock (360) a couple of days ago and figured I should probably play through that first.

King, did you ever join the avs clan for warhawk (ie, did matzira send you an invite) . If so, you should join us for some warhawk wed. fun as we having been playing ranked games as a clan lately (so you would be guaranteed on our team and no hammering would take place ). Just a thought.

I did get the invite and I did accept it, however having not played the game for so long, it just never felt as natural as it once did. I kept comparing it to SOCOM and it just wasn't fair to the game. It's a great game in it's own right but I could not fully get into it.

And, from my last experience, you guys are pretty tight as a clan/group, it's hard to break in and have fun.

With SOCOM, everyone is starting fresh again and I hope that we can play this together, if not this then at least we'll have Resistance 2.

Edit:
Had you gotten Bioshock on the PS3, we could have done a loan swap after I got done with Dead Space.

Hey, All-


I just wanted to let you know that we are aware of the issues with not being able to log into Confrontation. It's a server side issue and we are fixing it as quickly as possible. It should be up and running again very soon.

We're sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

What a piece of work. Seems nothings changed from the Beta. I can't understand for the life of me why they can't just make it playable.....

I can hear the excuse coming now...."due to the overwhelming numbers of players....."

I don't get it... why couldn't they release the game with trophies right from the start? Other games released by third parties are doing it now... why can't a first party dev do it? Seems pretty shady to put "Trophies" on the back of the box of included features when it clearly doesn't support it (yet). Not to mention the fact they made no mention of this until today (similar to how Burnout mentioned not retroactive when their patch released).

I love my PS3... but I'm starting to get really tired of feeling "cheated" by dev companies when buying games for the PS3.

Anyways... now that we know it will be at the minimum a few weeks until trophy support is given to us, does anyone know if they will be retroactive? For example, if one of the trophies is to achieve a certain rank, and you pass that before trophies are released, will you get that trophy once an update arrives?

If another trophy is to get a certain number of kills, will the kills from now until the release of the update count towards the trophy?

This is precisely why I am waiting until at least next week to even consider pulling the trigger on this game.

We’ve noticed a couple of comments today on the blog from gamers who purchased SOCOM Confrontation; you’ve been asking “Where are the trophies?”

Well, I just wrapped up a conversation with the SOCOM team, where they’ve confirmed the fact that trophies *will* be coming, via a patch, within the next couple of weeks.

Stay tuned to SOCOM.com for the latest on SOCOM Confrontation.

Bastards!

They should have just delayed the release.. added trophies, fixed some bugs, and smoothed out the servers.

Anybody else find it kind of ironic that a game that was delayed so many times still appears that it has been rushed? Servers not working properly, features on the back of the box not even being implemented yet (i.e., trophies)? I really hope they get it all sorted out. The gameplay on just one map was a blast when I could play during the BETA!.

I can't even get the update to download, It sits there for awhile then errors out. I had the same problem with the last couple of updates on the beta.
