SOCOM, Unit 13 & MAG Dev. Says Goodbye



zipper1 300x191 SOCOM, Unit 13 & MAG Dev. Says GoodbyeZipper Interactive has shut down shop after 17 years in the industry. The Seattle-based development studio opened up in 1995 initially creating titles for Microsoft, but is most notable for creating the SOCOM series for Sony.

For about a week rumors have been floating through the air (as reported by Kotaku) that Zipper was getting hit by layoffs, and
“The scope of the layoffs appears to indicate a studio shut-down.”

As confirmed by Sony on Friday, March 30 2012:

“The closure is a result of a normal cycle of resource re-alignment within SCE Worldwide Studios.” -Playstation Mag

“Zipper has completed all work associated with its most recent project, Unit 13 for PlayStation Vita. Zipper titles MAG, SOCOM 4 and Unit 13 will continue to be supported, including the new Daily Challenges in Unit 13.”

    This is a beautiful bag. Unfortunately, it will pick up any oils from your hands, body, etc, as well as mark in an intnast. I wanted this bag for travel as it has multiple pockets and is an excellent size for documents as well as an ipad, and wallet, but the color is not practical for that purpose. The material is as soft as butter and it lays well crossbody. The return process was flawless, and I will not hesitate to purchase this brand again.. just not in chamois.

    This bag rocks! It will carry a large laptop easliy with room to spare. I like the organizer being outside the bag right under the main flap. The pocket on the main flap holds a lot to. The cellphone/mediastick pocket is a nice touch. I like the 2 pockets on the side and the magazine/newspaper pocket on the back. The strap is very comfortable and makes the bag easy to carry long distances even if it is fully loaded. I was in school back when I bought this bag because of my new laptop which was 2 inches larger than my old laptop and would not fit in my old laptop bag. The main compartment holds quite a bit and the pocket that’s in front of the main compartment but behind the business organizer is very handy as well. My hats off to the maker of this excellent bag. The cost was great and very affordable. All in all, this bag was a steal at $40. It would’ve been a bargain at even 2 or 3 times that price. Amazon.com RULES!

    HMMM. LOOKS LIKE atnoher game where by you face atnoher modern day combat scenario’, as an Amercian soldier of some sort, brandishing a firearm, whilst facing an extremist enemy faction led by an rebel’ leader of some sort no doubt a threat to World’ safety, thus giving one the excuse to decimate and maim members of the human without prejudice, all in the name of national security and home entertainment’. Ah, I forgot to mention: the AI, textures, real time global light sourcing and attention to detail on the in game models facial hair surpasses anything that has been before Again *sigh*Next VN:F [1.9.17_1161](from 0 votes)

    The game looks like a massive gcphairal improvement from Slant Six Games’ SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation. And indeed it looks nicer than Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, and previous Battlefield titles (I still think Battlefield 3 looks a lot better than most games we have seen on the market), but will the gameplay be a solid experience or something broken (I personally think so) like MAG was?VN:F [1.9.17_1161](from 0 votes)
