Sony has pushed the US public beta for SOCOM: Confrontation back "a few days" to 5th September.
Those subscribing to PS3 online show Qore will get access a week later on 12th September, according to the official US PlayStation blog.
The mid-October US release date is also still set in place, and Sony promises the public beta will run for a full month so people can get plenty of practice playing soldiers.
However, European release date, prices, and beta timings for the PS3 tactical online shooter are yet to be confirmed, despite plenty of opportunities recently - Games Convention, for instance - to do so.
We are expecting an update shortly though, so we'll let you know when we hear more.
Update, 1.45pm: Here's the update then. We'll be giving away 6,000 keys shortly.
