Fans of the long standing SOCOM series will be disappointed to know, that in August all online services for SOCOM will be terminated.
While SOCOM had its prime back on the PlayStation 2, it’s no secret that the series started to go downhill, which might be the reason why Zipper Interactive closed its doors. So, f you are still playing or need trophies from the online portion of any SOCOM title, regardless if it’s PS2 or PSP, you have until August to make the most of it.
Here’s the official statement by Zipper Interactive:
