If you actually sat down and played the game not listening to every review site bash it, it was probably the best online game this gen. Or tied with greas 1.
Boutros (on 11 July 2011)
Bought for 5$. I heard it wasn't too bad with all the patches.
enditall727 (on 05 June 2011)
this game was released in the holiday's people
Vekta (on 28 April 2011)
the funny thing to is i know socom isnt big in emeaa, but confrontation was released like what a year later to emeaa and still had a bigger opening than s4's emeaa
Vekta (on 28 April 2011)
This game beat socom 4's launch, dont even blame it on psn being down either because Socom 4 had a single player, which every " new " fan was saying that it was going to make it sell more than confrontation.
chidori-chan2 (on 13 April 2011)
this game is more tactical and better than socom 4 ( socom 4 sucks)

One of the best games this Gen.... I love this game
FootballFan (on 28 April 2010)
0.99 again :(
jbrist (on 16 April 2010)
This game is SO underrated, I mean, people still think it's the buggy glitchfest like it was back when it released, but seriously, it's been fixed now, there's no server issues, I've never had a freeze up (Like people reported), never seen glitches or bugs or anything, it's a great multiplayer experience... until you join a game full of hardcore yankees, then they scream at you for being british D:

About time.
paulrage2 (on 13 April 2010)
1 million \o/\o/\o/\o/\o/
AnarchyWest (on 10 April 2010)
I predict this game will break 1 million
solideagle (on 10 April 2010)
naa not 5 million but may be 2 to 3 million...
PLayMySTatioN (on 04 April 2010)
Socom 4 will sell 5m .... if you even think im crazy your probably right but it will sell 5m.....
gustave154 (on 03 April 2010)
when is this gonna reaqch 1 mil 0.0
girgosz (on 30 March 2010)
It's at 0.99 for weeks now.
Ghazi4 (on 19 March 2010)
1 million soon!
huaxiong90 (on 07 March 2010)
It's gonna hit 1 million with retail versions. I just wonder how much PSN downloads are.
jester2358 (on 04 March 2010)
If this hit a million after receiving average reviews and being multiplayer only I wonder what SOCOM4 will sell?
axumblade (on 27 February 2010)
I'll go ahead and call it....I think it'll finally hit 1 million by the end of this year.
homer (on 13 February 2010)
I wonder how many people bought this game without knowing it was online play only.
Notorius.A.i.G (on 12 February 2010)
So close to 1 Mill !
Fame_Mcswagg (on 09 February 2010)
great game
-ku- (on 08 February 2010)
This was adjusted down i Remember it being 1.2million in November
aragod (on 29 January 2010)
I just ordered this yesterday, mainly for the bundled mic, but might aswell give it a go.
Solid_Snake4RD (on 29 January 2010)
i think it has hit 2m with PSN sales.A player who will buy this online game,will most likely just download it on PSN
kunaixhaku (on 25 January 2010)
this sold a million! wow
iWarMachine (on 22 January 2010)
@dgc...i think it's obvious by now that IS a million seller...
Dgc1808 (on 20 January 2010)
Chances are, it's a Million seller right now. Over 30,000 PSN sales is more than possible.
sabby_e17 (on 15 January 2010)
Will reach 1 million within 5 weeks.
homer (on 11 January 2010)
Better reach 1 million before Mag gets here or a lot of people will forget about it.
AnarchyWest (on 10 January 2010)
proof Socom has the most loyal fanbase
zaMy (on 13 December 2009)
The_killer

yea, probably by about 10 or 20 copies.

Rob6021
you couldn't have said it any better
I have still yet to find an online game I enjoy more than Socom despite its problems
Avarice28 (on 27 November 2009)
with downloads this game is probably at 1.5; hopefully they learn from the short comings and allow map packs to come out and help keep the sales going.
Rob6021 (on 10 November 2009)
This game got eaten alive by the critics, It is lacking on content with only 7 maps and lacking polish, even after all that it is an incredible game, there's nothing quite like it.
Dark Odin (on 29 October 2009)
more 100k for one million discs sold
MissingNo (on 19 October 2009)
I bought it for the Headset and traded in the game. It would have been great with a single player campaign.
crak-a-lak (on 17 October 2009)
I actually bought this game at launch. Traded it in in disappointment then bought it again based on promises made by my PSN friends of improvements that still haven't happened. I wasted $80 on this franchise. Why not just make Socom 2 HD the way they did the GOW collection. I would buy it.
-ku- (on 16 October 2009)
Wow I guess people got it after the glitches were fixed, surprised the sales are so high

I think s4 will do between 2.5-4 million LTD
metalgearmatt (on 10 October 2009)
This was a great distraction to get used to the Socom gameplay until Socom 4 comes out.
8/10
Fame_Mcswagg (on 09 October 2009)
no way this isn't over 1 million
FootballFan (on 04 October 2009)
one of the highest performing PS3 games in the US.
AnarchyWest (on 12 August 2009)
no matter how glitchy this game is...its still great if you were a S2 online player
zaMy (on 06 August 2009)
Socom 4 will pass this in sales. No doubt.
cheese_man (on 05 August 2009)
Great game, always heaps of people online, all with headsets
snyperdud (on 20 July 2009)
This is a great game.

Too bad I don't play it much anymore.
FootballFan (on 12 July 2009)
if PSN sales were included it could hit 1 million though.
FootballFan (on 04 July 2009)
Dont think it will hit 1 million :(

Its a good game, it just takes a while to get use to.
EdStation3 (on 29 June 2009)

Spire_VII (on 27 June 2009)
@ scourge29, not enough updates actually. We've been waiting for a long long time for patch 1.5
yusuke93_ita (on 27 June 2009)
going to buy this soon, how many people are online?
scourge29 (on 26 June 2009)
i feel so bad that fans have to endure so many updates
pablogers (on 23 June 2009)
remember that this game can also be downloaded from psn, so it must be like 1.2 m right now
FootballFan (on 10 June 2009)
Getting this soon :D
iWarMachine (on 07 June 2009)
already hit a million with psn version.
FootballFan (on 01 June 2009)
Wont hit a million.
FilaBrasileiro (on 28 May 2009)
I wonder how many folks have downloaded it....
Dark Odin (on 19 May 2009)
this will hit one million. thanks to america with 850k sales in some time (much time...)
TheThunder (on 12 May 2009)
will hit the big 1 mil ??
Bravo315 (on 08 May 2009)
@Noobie

PAL version was released 4 months after original release, same time as Killzone 2. Should pick up soon and the disc version will reach 1m easily.
Aj_habfan (on 04 May 2009)
Fun game.
krimoz911 (on 28 April 2009)
this game is really popular in US and the oppsite in others
NicholasCage (on 28 April 2009)
@noobie

Well, it was released 2 weeks after Killzone 2 and was released on the same weekend as Resident Evil 5.
Noobie (on 20 April 2009)
Disappointing sales in Others. i thought it would do 300k+ easily in others.. but its struggling even to reach 100k
PullusPardus (on 17 April 2009)
i never really had any game breaking lag in this game other than my roater failing. (it happens alot)

so i must say i love this game.
cs-manager (on 07 April 2009)
@kersed3

Because of the netcode. Not every game has the same one.

Gears of War 2 runs like shit online because of the horrible netcode.

Killzone 2 runs on dedicated server btw. It runs great also because of that
kersed3 (on 05 April 2009)
can someone answer this question?

Why does this game have lots of lag, when games like cod: waw and killzone 2 have no lag?

Cuz socom is only online, so they should be able to add more things to the disc to make it less laggy or sumthing like that?
kersed3 (on 05 April 2009)
this game is selling good for a only online game. I definently think its because of the bundle, with the blu-tooth mike. me and 2 other friends got that bundle. To be honest, i never really liked these games. I just got the bundle because it was 59.99, the game seperate was like 39.99 and the mike seperate was 39.99. So i saved alot of money, and it turned out to be fun! Havent played it in a while since i got KZ2 though... hopefully once the lagging is fixed a bit more ill play it more
Skeeuk (on 05 April 2009)
new 1.5 patch sounds awsome
Max King of the Wild (on 03 April 2009)
i dont know about 25% of sales but i will definitely saw 10% of total sales puting this game at about 850k.

850 x .1 = 85

850 - 85 = 765

it will probably do another 100k disc sales in EU putting this game over 1mil. lots of 360 fans said itll never cross it. and for online only game its a huge success. beat warhawk, shadow run, and both UT3 easily

snyperdud (on 25 March 2009)
Good sales.
Skeeuk (on 24 March 2009)
its gotten to a million easy including downloads.

imo game is terrific and very playable im glad i bought it.
StockoPS3 (on 22 March 2009)
good game d/led it
metalgearmatt (on 18 March 2009)
neat-o european cover :)
grimygunz (on 18 March 2009)
just ordered it for headset this week for 30 bux.

people shouldn't worry about the sales of this game cause its available on the PSN cutting its disc sales atleast 25%.
City17 (on 15 March 2009)
Picked this up with Killzone 2 for the headset. I'll give it a try later on...
Zedux (on 14 March 2009)
SOCOM is behind only Killzone 2 and RE5 sales in Europe this week!
NicholasCage (on 05 March 2009)
I hope this game doesn't get overshadowed in Others because of Resident Evil 5 :|
I LOVE GIGGS (on 26 February 2009)
Just picked up, mostly for headset, but I'll give it a shot =)
CanadaGamer (on 25 February 2009)
this game deserves a million. Its slowly getting close.
FaRmLaNd (on 23 February 2009)
Solid sales so far
makingmusic476 (on 22 February 2009)
They shouldn't have released this after Killzone in the EU. That was just a bad idea.
Skeeuk (on 22 February 2009)
hurry up and release this
Squall_Leonhart (on 18 February 2009)
Guaranteed million seller when released in Others :-)
madcom8888 (on 17 February 2009)
great game, more realistic than COD4 in terms of gameplay and mechanics, imho
Aj_habfan (on 08 February 2009)
Just picked up, mostly for headset, but I'll give it a shot =)
Skeeuk (on 08 February 2009)
game has been pushed back to 13th march for eu now. i still have it on preorder its gonna make a good game
Yawnier (on 07 February 2009)
Nevermind according to up here it says 2/28/09, so 1 day before Killzone 2 releases.
Yawnier (on 07 February 2009)
When is this game releasing in Europe?
AnarchyWest (on 29 January 2009)
I think this game is selling well for an online only game...when this game releases in Europe it should reach a millon LTD within the year (retail)
AnarchyWest (on 29 January 2009)
bcthighs,
i don't know what your talking about with 30-40% people not having a mic in Socom...I play this game every weekend (my favorite online game btw) and I would say 90%+ of the users have a mic

Damstr8 (on 25 January 2009)
With the trophies out now,looks like ill be playing again...
Skeeuk (on 23 January 2009)
ive pre ordered this i cant wait to play it. sales must be around 800k including downloads, and with eu release it should get to 1 million
cheese_man (on 22 January 2009)
The best modern warfare game I have played. COD4 is old compared to this imo. I hope it does really well in sales so that they have more money to create MAG.
ceaser92 (on 20 January 2009)
Good thing, it will break 1 million before the end of the year
Signalstar (on 19 January 2009)
million seller for sure.
bcthighs (on 18 January 2009)
DAMMIT i mean 800k...its 2 oclock in the morning -.-
bcthighs (on 18 January 2009)
800 million*
bcthighs (on 18 January 2009)
this game has probably sold 800 easily if you include the PSN purchases (game is purchasable as disc or can be downloaded of PSN store). I see around 30-40% of people do not have bluetooth mics online (theres an icon next to name ot indicate). Most of these people must have downloaded the game: why would you not pay $10 extra to get it with a mic if you want to buy the disc version? I personally dont have a mic and have the disc version but thats because i imported the game from america. lifetime sales? with europe and aussie/nz still not having it released, im guessing 1.5 million (including PSN sales). obviously im guessing the psn sales numbers, so i may be inaccurate. this is still a poor number considering socom 1 and socom 2 sold around million combined. but then again ps3 has sold far less than the ps2..but im certain socom is getting less popular with each release.
01casey (on 16 January 2009)
This game will sell well in Europe. It is in the top three of most website's preorder lists (alongside Resi 5 and Killzone 2 consistentley), and has been number one preordered on many sites for weeks.

Of course, the inclusion of a bluetooth headset is contributing greatly. I considered purchasing this for the headset alone.

Around 1.1 million lifetime I reckon.
huaxiong90 (on 14 January 2009)
It'll sell over a million, no sweat.
Skeeuk (on 13 January 2009)
should get to 1 million in the end, for an online only title thats great.

ive preordered mine today
Yawnier (on 11 January 2009)
Wonder how much this game is gonna sell once it releases in Europe?

I can see this selling 800K - 900K in the end.
Jexy (on 09 January 2009)
my friend is a big fan of the series, why does this one not seem to be selling like the previous ones?
Aj_habfan (on 09 January 2009)
Gearbox, you are out of your mind. The series has followed a steady pattern of selling 3x more in America then Europe. There is no way this game sells more then 70k opening week.
Gearbox (on 06 January 2009)
@spectre35
seriously? nahhh it will sell 200k to 250k first week in europe alone. then another 50k next week, thats already past 800k
Spectre35 (on 06 January 2009)
800K in the end.
Aj_habfan (on 04 January 2009)
This game won't sell much at all in Europe, but it should still have solid sales in the end.
NYANKS (on 03 January 2009)
And remember the online sales are probably significant for those lazies who didn't go out and get the physical game.
Gamer4eva (on 02 January 2009)
People were saying this game was going to flop, fuking idiots. I predict with others it should have a LTD of about 1.3 Mil
Slavedemonxi (on 28 December 2008)
@damstr8, that could be possible, but I think the game plays very well as it is right now.
Damstr8 (on 26 December 2008)
amazingly fun game.glad i bought it.
playnext3 (on 26 December 2008)
with others could reach 1 million
FPSrules (on 26 December 2008)
@ninjamonkey

can u quit trolling. we all know you dont even own a ps3.

as for the headset socom comes with the offical blu tooth for PS3, its wonderful, clear, looks hott, easy to reach mute button, and speaker mode for when your charging

no other blu tooth does that
Hardware123456 (on 24 December 2008)
patch 1.30 Gon b da Shit
Damstr8 (on 23 December 2008)
@slavedemonxi

theres probably something wrong with the game in its state.they wouldnt delay it for no reason.
Slavedemonxi (on 22 December 2008)
It makes no sense to me why this is coming out so late in the UK.
Skeeuk (on 21 December 2008)
i cnt wait for this to come out in uk
Damstr8 (on 20 December 2008)
big increase this week.
Slavedemonxi (on 20 December 2008)
It's pretty fun when you get it going finnbar. I totally agree, the install is a little annoying. I finally broke down and got the Mic bundle, so glad i decided to.
Finnbar (on 20 December 2008)
Just bought my bro the game. And now im sitting here waiting through this god awful long install...yikes.
jerseyboy609 (on 17 December 2008)
lol aj
ninjamonkey (on 17 December 2008)
this series suks i didnt like any of them and this is the worse 1 yet
i wouldnt of gotten it but i got it for my birthday
im telling anybody who is looking to get this game not to.

if u want the headset just get it with endwar
Aj_habfan (on 14 December 2008)
That didn't seem to help Warhawk...
FPSrules (on 05 December 2008)
i should sell more, considering the fact that bundle with the blu tooth everyone would eventually want to get.

pay $50 for the blu tooth, or pay $60 with a bonus game that is running a lot better than when it was released
Gamer4eva (on 05 December 2008)
1 Million no problem
Damstr8 (on 04 December 2008)
...im not going to lie...the boxart is just incredible.
metalgearmatt (on 04 December 2008)
im calling 1.45 lifte times!
jerseyboy609 (on 03 December 2008)
yes!!
Damstr8 (on 30 November 2008)
debating on purchasing...my question is.is it fun? And worth the money?
jerseyboy609 (on 29 November 2008)
THIA GAME IS FUN AS HELL, THEY FIXED UP THE SERVERS
Aj_habfan (on 28 November 2008)
Perhaps, or perhaps the headset will pursue a lot of them.
Fabius (on 28 November 2008)
SOCOM is a totally US Game, in Europe only a few Hardcore Gamers play it.
No Millionseller till Budget Release
kunaixhaku (on 27 November 2008)
300k added with the psn sales and soon to be launched in europe easy million seller
AnarchyWest (on 23 November 2008)
this game is easily my favorite online game this gen...don't let the negative day 1 reviews influence your buy
Gearbox (on 22 November 2008)
i like the legs but id prefer like 5 millin all at once rather then over 5 years or such for any game. no what i mean?
jerseyboy609 (on 20 November 2008)
nice legz!!
FilaBrasileiro (on 19 November 2008)
I'll eventually purchase this game, but they should've delayed it a month or two in order to not have its sales hurt by reviews.
derwarre (on 17 November 2008)
sorry but this game was a total failure...yes it looks great and it probably plays a lot better than the beta now but the damage has been done and this SOCOM will never sell 1M copies...very sad

PSN: yungder
FPSrules (on 17 November 2008)
ok for ppl who keeps saying this game sucks or it got terrible reviews have no idea wat they are talking about

the only reason this game got bad reviews is because of the bugs that mess up da servers. for ex ign said the above, but quoted if you like tactical shooters this is a must have. this game is awesome when its working, and for the most part the servers are a lot better now
Skeeuk (on 17 November 2008)
game will sell quite well, its out here on 28th.

TO ANY FANBOY WHO KEEPS QUOTING THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS....................a huge 500meg patch is availiable 1.20 and all the gripes the reviewers said are now gone...........i have a few friends who play it and they said game is very good.........developers will keep adding to the game and its a good buy at the price game have it for 29.99
jerseyboy609 (on 17 November 2008)
@Gearbox, I own warhawk, if you look at my profile you will see it. No one but me talks on Warhawk...I literally have to take control of the whole damn team. I Have played with vgchart users and they will tell you how talkative I am. I am a former XBL member
Aj_habfan (on 11 November 2008)
First week adjusted down quite a bit.

@ jerseyboy609 |yes i have, have u ever played warhawk??
jerseyboy609 (on 05 November 2008)
@Gearbox, I seriously doubt that you have played PSN, otherwise you say different
MontanaHatchet (on 04 November 2008)
Most online players already have a mic? That's not what I've heard...
Gearbox (on 03 November 2008)
@ This game got Haze-ed lol...Ign gave it a 4.5
. . . u do realise most online players alreayd have a mic so they decided to just download it online for the 40$ instead of 60....
jerseyboy609 (on 03 November 2008)
This game got Haze-ed lol...Ign gave it a 4.5
Triple X (on 30 October 2008)
It actually did better then 220ks since VGC doesn't count the downloadable PSN.
Slavedemonxi (on 29 October 2008)
A lot of people are steering clear of it because the online issues weren't corrected by launch. From what I've heard it wont be for a while that the firmware update will come.
Gearbox (on 29 October 2008)
nah it has more 2 do with many online gamers already have a mic so they just dl it on the psn saves 20 bucks.
Munkeh111 (on 29 October 2008)
That was a huge drop off, I suppose reviews count more for second week sales
outlawauron (on 29 October 2008)
Wow. That's some bad legs.
ruibing (on 28 October 2008)
Looking forward to the big issues being finally fixed on Wedneday with update 1.20.
segajon (on 28 October 2008)
wow first week sales were bumped down and the legs fell off during week 2.
nexzen (on 27 October 2008)
europe ps3's largest fan base always gets everything late LMAO that jus jkz
loy310 (on 27 October 2008)
This game Rocks.
hunter_alien (on 27 October 2008)
This game shouldent sell this much :( Only a 60%-er on metacritics :(
koopatrooper (on 27 October 2008)
this looks alot like counterstrike boxart
cool48 (on 26 October 2008)
If the patch that is scheduled to come out soon fixes the online problems I will buy this game.
Bladeneo (on 26 October 2008)
Niksta2 - Really? Haze sold under 100k first week in the US, this is not gonna be another haze.
Dgc1808 (on 24 October 2008)
Nice opening week.
Xen (on 24 October 2008)
Off to a nice start. Hopefully, servers will be stabilised soon.
Gnosis (on 24 October 2008)
Pretty good opening. Should go on to sell a million I think.
Slavedemonxi (on 23 October 2008)
I'm getting this, but I am gonna wait for the firmware update that fixes all the bugs. I heard there are a ton.
BeTa77 (on 23 October 2008)
It will be a million seller, all socoms are, best one yet!
MontanaHatchet (on 23 October 2008)
Niksta, no it didn't. Both your first and second weeks are wrong.
Jo21 (on 23 October 2008)
i want this just because of the bluetooth headset :D
niksta2 (on 23 October 2008)
good opening?

or is this another "haze"

if you remember, haze sold like 250k first week then like 4k next week lol
SS5656 (on 23 October 2008)
wow good opening =)
Dark Odin (on 23 October 2008)
good opening.

maybe million seller
Damstr8 (on 23 October 2008)
Good Opening
jerseyboy609 (on 23 October 2008)
SWEET OPENING!!
K-DOGG (on 22 October 2008)
the bluetooth is pretty sweet and the game is sweet as well. a must have for socom fans.
MauleR (on 20 October 2008)
Great game! Really stays true to socom's shooting style!
Thechalkblock (on 18 October 2008)
This game is actually pretty fun once you finally get it working.
jerseyboy609 (on 11 October 2008)
I want this game
coolestguyever (on 09 October 2008)
i have it pre-ordered already, so i pretty much own it.
Gearbox (on 24 September 2008)
same here all i want is that 50 dollar headset.. still game looks fun :)
Aj_habfan (on 22 September 2008)
I'll be buying, but pretty much only for the headset.
luistomas8782 (on 22 September 2008)
day one purchase
Spectre35 (on 22 September 2008)
Maybe GOTY with BF-BC!

Think it will sell more as a online only game or less? 39$ is a good price for Socom.

I guess Sony is sticking with that "Only on PlayStation" and hideous "PlayStation Network" things on the cover :-(

If you actually sat down and played the

Bought for 5$. I heard it wasn't too bad
with all the patches.
