The lights are on
Or if you prefer, Sony and Zipper will be giving out a slew of bonuses to people who buy the game new.New copies of SOCOM 4 contain a one-time use code that upgrades you to "SOCOM Pro," which lets you enter into Pro-only matchmaking queues as well as giving free access to planned content expansions like new guns and weapons down the line. For $14.99, you can upgrade yourself to Pro if you come by the game through any other means than buying a sealed copy.The way that Sony is hyping it on the blog, anyone who plays multiplayer for more than a week is going to want to have a Pro membership. So don't plan on picking up SOCOM 4 on the cheap if you're into online play on anything more than a casual level.I'm going to recuse myself from further comment on the matter as the obvious target of this move ultimately signs my checks. Feel free to discuss in the comments.
