First of all,HELLO everyone I am fairly new to posting on this forum although I have read a lot of the threads and I
will be posting alot more from now on.
So back to the topic, I want to play Socom U.S. Navy Seals
online with my PS2 system but I am unsure if I will get charged on my phone bill. How can I find out if a game costs money to play online? THANKS in advance!

Well, it won't be your phone bill. If they charge for Socom, it would not be via a phone bill because most people use broadband (DSL or Cable Modem) with their PS2. In fact, I'm not sure that there is a modem option for the PS2.

You'd want to check the publisher's website for that kind of information.

Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

There is indeed a modem option for PS2 online games, but some games will not let you play on-line using that option (and those that do will point out your relatively bad connection to others, so you may have trouble getting games.)

You will get charged for (usual) a local phone call while you're online, and people will not be able to call you while you're online. Same thing as internet usage. - CMLLBlog

Very few PS2 games charge for online play. Those that do have a monthly (or perhaps yearly) fee you must pay to be a member. The only games I know of that charge are FFXI and Everquest.

Pre-post note: HAIL SNITSKEY.
I might be wrong, but doesn't SOCOM require broadband?

If by 'require' you mean getting booted from games by game owners, and being called every dirty name in the book because you dialuper's are lagging everyones game then yes you need broadband. Ha, Ha, Ha. There are actual lobby's of online games that are named Broadband only. It's kinda funny

But seriously, check the back of the game cases and they tell you if broadband is required or you can use dial up. Most of the new games require broadband connection. So you should get it anyway, broadband/wireless is the future my friend.

Case in point, the new redesigned PS2 has the online adaptor as part of the system and only has a ethernet port.

on the shelves 7 of these? And of course there's only 1 next week. 09/25: Mega Man 9 (PSN) [metacritic] {$10} - in case you haven't heard, faithful recreation/sequal of 8 bit series right down to (optional) screen flicker.
