Shacknews Daily: Apr 02, 2012 - SOCOM 4 dev closed, new releases

Despite the legendary stature of the SOCOM franchise, Sony pulled the plug on series developer Zipper Interactive after a string of three successive releases that came up short of their hype.

Team Meat announced plans to bring Super Meat Boy to iOS and android, but as a proper new game and not a port. And Diabolical Pitch and Xenoblade Chronicles headline this week's new releases.
