SOCOM 4 Strategically Releases $150 Full Deployment Edition

Sony gives SOCOM fans a chance to gear up for the new age of motion-controlled shooters with the $150 Full Deployment Edition of SOCOM 4. What's inside?

One of the high points of the recently-released Killzone 3 was the brilliantly implemented support for the PlayStation Move controller and Sony's new Sharp Shooter gun peripheral. With that success behind them, Sony gives SOCOM 4 fans everything they need to experience motion-controlled combat in the Full Deployment Edition.

Releasing side-by-side with the standalone game on April 19, the Full Deployment Edition boxes up SOCOM 4 with a PlayStation Eye camera, a Move controller, a navigation controller, and the Sharp Shooter peripheral.

"Given the high level of anticipation for SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs, we wanted to provide the most immersive offering to fans of the franchise, who seek to experience the next evolution of motion gaming," said John Koller, Director, Hardware Marketing, SCEA. "With the precision of the motion controller and the intuitive design of the sharp shooter, PlayStation Move delivers on that promise. When used in tandem with the stereoscopic 3D support for games like SOCOM 4 and Killzone 3, it results in an experience only possible on the PlayStation 3 system."

Maybe this will mark my chance to pick up a Move controller for the second time, having traded the first one I purchased back in after not enjoying a single game in the entire launch lineup.
