Giving a nod to the SOCOM fanbase with SOCOM 4

This is something that's been on my mind since the release of SOCOM 4, and the more I think about it the more I believe how important it will be to SOCOM fans, regardless of how much the game will otherwise change.

Here are simple, small, yet very effective ways that Zipper can really speak to the fans of SOCOM:

  • Include the original SOCOM 1 & SOCOM 2 theme on the soundtrack, somewhere in the game.
  • Bring back "SEALS vs Terrorists" online, no more of this "Mercenaries and Commandos" stuff. SEALS vs Terrorists is to SOCOM, as Red vs Blue is to Halo.
  • Text chat in pre/post-game lobbies
  • Character skins from singleplayer (SEALs & Terrorists), playable in multiplayer (courtesy GORILA618)

I've posed this question to the SOCOM.com forums and will be adding to the list as more suggestions come in.
