SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs - Confrontation is the first game in the long-running third-person tactical shooter series to appear on the PlayStation 3. It was again developed by Slant Six Games as they took over the work from the original company Zipper Interactive starting with the PSP title SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs - Tactical Strike. The game focuses on online gameplay with special forces from different nations such as the Navy SEALs, Special Air Service, Kommando Spezialkräfte, Unidad de Operaciones Especiales, and 1er Régiment Parachutiste d'Infanterie de Marine.

Players can define a character (both characteristics and equipment) and then need to work together as a team to succeed in the missions. Some of the options are the type of armour, camouflage, specific weapons and weapon attachments. There are seven different game modes such as Suppression (regular team deathmatch), Control (acquiring and defending checkpoints) and Extraction (guiding hostages to a safe zone). The PS3's motion sensor can be used to lean around corners, prone, or peek over obstacles.

The game is available as stand-alone, bundled with a Bluetooth headset, or downloadable through the PlayStation Network.
