Would be pretty cool, and a money maker, and we know how sony is with using Socom to make money!!!

If I had socom 2 HD, I would never need another online game. I would play it right now if it were in better condition

from the sound of your description you should just get MAG or wait for the SOCOM 4

Jeigh  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:29 pm

Isn’t that what Socom 4 is for? We need to move forward, not just remake the past. Especially when it comes to shooters which are mostly a dime a dozen.

Move Forward??? what do you think all other games have to stop being made because of this. SOCOM 4 is coming out no matter what so why should people care if they do a remake of a game… If you don’t want to buy it, don’t buy it… Doesn’t mean since you want to play it, you should not want it made altogether..

xGATEZx  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:48 pm

whoops… “don’t” should be added to that last sentence.

Yes Socom II HD would be a cash cow…..

9

Rico_Suavez  |  March 17th, 2010 at 6:21 pm

Socom 2 HD would not be a cash cow. The only people who will buy it is Socom 2 fans.

10

THETRANE  |  March 17th, 2010 at 6:24 pm

SOCOM 2 not even HD. Just put it on the PSN, fix some bugs and there you go.

God of War Collection was amazing. BTW it was my first time ever playing God of War. It got me to buy God of War 3

Socom 2 will not just be for the 2 million people who loved Socom 2…it will let new players enjoy the most amazing multiplayer experience i have even witnessed

It will also be a great lead into Socom 4. Id love if the did this…

12

RedHarlow  |  March 17th, 2010 at 6:30 pm

Great idea. Bring back the real Socom feeling.

13

phinnv8  |  March 17th, 2010 at 6:52 pm

Hopefully SOCOM 4 does all this and more.

14

GodStrike_  |  March 17th, 2010 at 7:42 pm

The OP is talking about using MAG technology, not making SOCOM II MAG. Just that technology is good and already available. S4 is using it, it would be a no brainier to port S2 using the same engine.

15

SiMpLiFiEDChAoS  |  March 17th, 2010 at 7:53 pm

SOCOM 2 with SOCOM 1 Hit Detection, SOCOM: Confrontation sound quality, the same SOCOM 4 graphics, and a MAG server. Perfect game right there.

16

Ironcast916  |  March 17th, 2010 at 8:22 pm

I would buy for sure. Just make abandoned day again.

Knightjet  |  March 18th, 2010 at 12:45 am

I don’t see why people voted this down??

They made a GoW Collection, just give us a Socom Collection.

But in this case Socom II is the way to go, just give us better graphics, sound, rid of cheaters, and some more weapons and maps.

Besides its not as if Sony doesn’t use this franchise when they need a quick buck.

We want them to invent this product they can have our money, but they refuse? Mr.Wise Sony where have you gone?

19

SpecterMk23  |  March 18th, 2010 at 1:07 am

Instant buy for me, i’d pay $200 for SOCOM 2 HD.

20

TOMBSTONE4U  |  March 18th, 2010 at 4:55 am

its just the people that want to change Socom bad and fierecely fight for changes with the last three flopped games. Even if they still get their S4 with the dumb CON look and feel they are on an absolute mission to make sure the s1/s2 fans don’t ever get a Socom they want.They’re fighting the idea of this just for the sake of fighting it rather then thinking “hey i can have my new SOcom 4 plus an old style one and have the best of both worlds.”

21

ReconWilly  |  March 18th, 2010 at 8:49 am

This is a NO BRAINER iiiiiiffff SONY is at all interested in making some EASY capital to invest in “THEIR” next failed vision of what THEY think WE want, don’t get me wrong SOCOM 4 looks decent and MIGHT be fun, but at the same time it would be nice to have the option to play something I know I WANT to play, EVERYONE else seems to be satisfied “THIS GEN” why not the OVERLY LOYAL core SOCOMERS?

22

Mr_Creosote  |  March 18th, 2010 at 11:01 am

Nostalgia, nostalgia, nostalgia. SOCOM 2 was of its time. Any attempt to remake it now would be futile and just wouldn’t be the same. You can’t simply flip a switch and have S2 running on PS3 (unless you have a machine with the PS2 emulator), it will inevitably change as a consequence of having to re-engineer code to work with modern libraries and systems on the PS3. Get over it, wait for SOCOM 4 and keep an open mind. Who knows, while it may not give you the same warm feeling in your groin that S2 did as a teenager, it might actually be a fun, playable game!

23

TOMBSTONE4U  |  March 18th, 2010 at 12:07 pm

Mr_Creosote,tell that to the makers of God of War 3 who have a blockbuster hit that plays virtually the same as the old ones with minor enhancements and additions. Just the overhaul of graphics and a great server would breathe so much life into the S2 game,and with 22 maps or 25 if they included the DLC no one would have to worry about a shortage of maps to play on. You won’t even see 1/3 the number of maps in todays online games right out of the box.

24

GodStrike_  |  March 18th, 2010 at 12:25 pm

@Creosote;
Totally disagree; SII stands the test of time and still remains the only game ever to have a truly challenging design. S:C was ruing by noobs, just like S4 is.

25

Gahoops  |  March 18th, 2010 at 12:29 pm

I am assuming that people are voting this down because they don’t understand the issue of using the MAG engine.
Also, it wouldn’t take the place of Socom 4, it would just be an additional title.

26

DEADEYEZ  |  March 18th, 2010 at 1:02 pm

Bring back SOCOM 2 online only as a PSN game thats it. Same exact thing as back in the day with new graphics.

27

SocomFan4Ever  |  March 18th, 2010 at 1:49 pm

Great idea i would so buy it and i bet you thousands more would.

28

EVASiVE-OPs  |  March 18th, 2010 at 7:35 pm

Wow bunch of haters. Could be the best of both worlds. S2HD for classic fans and S4 for the “broader” audience. Its not like the fan base isn’t divided already.

29

cheibaby  |  March 19th, 2010 at 12:50 am

Please I would love to see this on PSN I be the first to buy it right when it hits the store :)

30

Mr_Creosote  |  March 19th, 2010 at 5:03 am

You all make it sound like adding “better graphics” is a cheap and trivial thing. I don’t believe it is at all. The GOW retro games have been in development for quite a while, if I’m not mistaken? Maybe it’s a biz decision by Sony not to do it, in case they won’t make any profit for the work involved. Also, who do you get to work on it? Zipper are busy … Slant Six? BTDT.

31

Mr_Inconspicous  |  March 20th, 2010 at 2:00 pm

always wanted it but never had socom 2 n as i hav an 80gb ps3 i cant play ps2 games on it

32

Frost462606  |  March 21st, 2010 at 9:00 am

Just so you all know they are making a socom 2 HD ……. its called SOCOM 4

33

WellRounded  |  March 23rd, 2010 at 9:50 am

Socom 4 will be a completely reinvented game. It wont be anything like Socom 2 besides the similar name.

Id love to be able to play Socom 2 on my ps3

34

35

FULLxTIMExHITMAN  |  March 29th, 2010 at 5:57 pm

must buy! needed for socom vets!

36

Bue2_222  |  April 12th, 2010 at 10:39 pm

Socom 2 is a great game (It’s my first M rated game on PS2) but with the broken game known as Socom:Confrontation. I fear that this will make more harm then good. If Socom 4 turns out great then I will agree but not now.

37

IM-ThE-BeAsT-  |  April 15th, 2010 at 2:04 pm

i would buy socom hd even if it cost 100e

38

39

JasonXRaven  |  April 19th, 2010 at 5:48 pm

I would buy it if it happened.

40

iamLosT  |  May 10th, 2010 at 1:39 pm

i just dont understand has any head official in sony even seen the demand for ps2 games in general to be rereleased on the psn?

there is support for it everywhere i mean its like they wanna please the ps3 users but ignore the biggest request amongst the majority.

been playing since day1 of s1 had some fun times even had a friends on this game that i considered to be really close. hell i still play to this day.

all were asking is for literally the game i cud careless if the graphics were updated, to be patched with better servers and no more c9. and then boom it’d be a cash cow for em and active again. i guarantee it and with support from the gaming community. sites such as gamebattles.com and mlg.com would put this game back to its hay day.

41

iamLosT  |  May 10th, 2010 at 1:39 pm

they said s1/2 was a design fluke and s3 was there true vision when they made the games but why change what isnt broken you have a dedicated community of fans who are willing to pay to play a game they once loved that has been taken from them by little kids and the ascension of a system designed to not allow no backwards compatibility(yes i know it was there at one point and lucky i have a launch day ps3) but it just sucks that noone will even give us a reason to why its not being done. they invest money into stupid projects like ps3 home and other bs. im just sick of the run around someone find me jack trettons info and ill email him personally from the community. we deserve a straight forward answer and i demand we get one.

42

MauleR_51-50  |  May 21st, 2010 at 10:53 pm

Basically make a Socom collection like you did with God of war. 720p 60fps on a cheat free ps3 only blu ray.

43

DESSILATOR  |  May 22nd, 2010 at 2:07 pm

get rid of code 9 AKA bypassing DNAS and ill go play the ps2 version. wouldnt even need a HD and I wouldnt have played confrontation because it was bad.

Just like i played socom 2 for 4 years, id still be playing it, if not for codes online.

44

HTK  |  May 22nd, 2010 at 4:06 pm

Lets go ahead SOCOMers and try to get SOCOM II back. Let’s show SONY that there are plenty of fans willing to buy a SOCOM II HD, and where Sony can obtain something business wise. Both party’s would be happy so lets make it happen, Sony and Fans.

45

LUKENBACHER  |  May 22nd, 2010 at 4:45 pm

Wow, you guys are HATERS for all the “no” votes. Just gotta crawl out of the woodwork and destroy a little something some people out there really want to see happen. A Socom 2 remake wouldn’t hurt ANY of you one bit.

46

MauleR_51-50  |  May 22nd, 2010 at 5:51 pm

I don’t want the MAG engine. I want the socom2 ps2 engine. Basically exactly what they did in the GOW collection porting the ps2 version to ps3 with 720p+60fps+AA

47

FacelessMask  |  May 22nd, 2010 at 6:11 pm

Can we let the Nostalgia die please? It’s getting old pun intended.

48

Mashed-Potatoes  |  May 22nd, 2010 at 6:14 pm

I’d be up for SOCOM 2 HD. Refine the character movement slightly, make the hit detection and weapon damage good, fix the bugs/glitches etc. and it would be a great addition tot he PSN store.

49

David2Crazy  |  May 22nd, 2010 at 6:14 pm

Hell yes. Would be the easiest money maker that Sony’s ever published.

50

PAUL-AWOL-  |  May 22nd, 2010 at 6:15 pm

YES YES YES YES, WHO CARES JUST VOTE YES. IF YOU DON’T WANT IT DON’T BUY IT !!!! I swear if I see any of you opposers rocking Socom 2 HD when it comes out I will bash you for a month everyday, LOL. Talk big now, then all of sudden your whole Clan is playing it, whatcha gonna do then. LMAO
