I guess its nice for the fans, but Socom never did much for me. There's a wealth of realistic military shooters out there. I'd rather Sony devs do something more original, or merge the Socom work with the Warhawk team
Negatory, it's being developed by SlantSix, so I don't think they're working as closely with Sony as internal studios. It looks damn nice for a PSN title, but I'm of the opinion that anything Warhawk-quality or higher is sufficient for a download game...and Warhawk looks fantastic to me.
