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. MAG, SOCOM 4, and Unit 13, one of a handful of strong titles for the new Vita system, all failed to find the winning formula the developer had down so well with SOCOM 2. 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.

Check out today's episode of Shacknews Daily.

      What a bunch of shit! Sony claims that they will "keep" supporting MAG when they wouldn't let Zipper support it for well over a year. Anyone who likes playing any Zipper title,don't expect ANY support.
