If you're unfamiliar with SOCOM 4 – perhaps you're not in the beta – you may hold some false assumptions.
For instance, one might presume this game is your standard third-person and squad-based shooter and while there is strategy involved, the gameplay doesn't alter drastically from person to person. Well, did you know there's a significant difference between being a passive and active leader? Check out the PlayStation Blog , where you'll see two very different approaches to the single-player campaign chapter, Benefaction. In this level, we find ourselves in a dense jungle environment that culminates in an epic beach ambush as enemy equipment is unloaded onto the shore. While Sid kept a low profile but took care of most of the work himself, Jeff decided to issue commands and hang back…thereby allowing him to finish the level without firing a single shot.
Freedom and choice are crucial in this growing form of entertainment; the more choice we have, the more fun we tend to have.
