I honestly had thought they died longer ago. I still remember MechWarrior 3 and it's awesomeness that Zipper Interactive made.

I would have been in tears reading this... If the back ground picture was SOCOM 1 or 2 instead of 4.

Sony and Zipper brought this on themselves. They dropped the ball after SOCOM 2 and utterly ignored their fans for the next 9 years. I spent a good part of the last 3 or 4 years advocating for the SOCOM community on the official SOCOM website, and throughout this time we were consistently ignored by the developers and harassed by the staff.

I hope the future is not too harsh on the people who were laid off. But this is a really shameful story.

Sadly enough you are right. Their fans are the only ones playing their game. They ignored the fans and thus made the worst game they could have made and called it Socom. Truly sad to see such OBVIOUS choices be ignored.
