SOCOM 4 Trailer: Do it for Your Country

The Navy’s latin motto flashes up on screen at the end of this trailer: non sibi sed patriae. Not self, country. In fact, studies reveal that most combatants who do the boots-on-the-ground thing fight for their fellow soldiers, rather than any grander philosophical concept. The tricky bit: patriotism (or religious fanaticism) is the tie that binds. Anyway, the multi-player uber alles SOCOM 4 has a real battle ahead of it against the Black Ops boys at Call of Duty. I wonder if the makers of both games had a little interservice rivalry thing going. I mean, these guys look a long way from a boat. Why can’t we play that game?
