With every passing day, I am given less and less reasons to regret Pre-ordering the Hero Edition. Thanks to the katana amp, I now have none.
Following game going gold, Sucker Punch details more perks for those who pick up PS3-exclusive action adventure in advance.
Among the many detriments of the PlayStation Network outage, Sony and Sucker Punch have largely missed out on the hype built by a beta test for Infamous 2. While plans surrounding that test are still in flux, Sony will be motivating shoppers with a bonus preorder package for the electrically charged open-world action adventure.
Announced today, the new preorder pack augments the previously announced preorder incentives with four additional items. The Reaper skin lets gamers play through Infamous 2 as one of the superpowered evil beings from the original title. It also includes three in-game weapons: Sly's Cane (of Sly Cooper fame), the caveman club, and a samurai sword.
The four items are downloadable by way of a voucher obtained by preordering either the standard or $100 Hero Edition. Of note, gamers are running out of time to cash in on the preorder incentives. Earlier this week, Sony confirmed that Infamous 2 has gone gold in advance of its June 7 release date.
Those looking to catch up on the Infamous storyline may be pleased to know that the original Infamous is being offered as part of Sony's "Welcome Back" program. The game can be acquired once Sony relaunches the PlayStation Store, which will reportedly occur on May 24.
For more information, check out GameSpot's previous coverage of Infamous 2.
i got into the UGC beta for this and it's amazing how Sucker Punch made it feel like the original inFamous but at the same time they revamped everything. i love throwing cars around New Marais haha :D i wanna see what new powers cole gets in this one as well. hopefully they're not limited to two ice powers or two fire powers, but rather a whole set of ice powers/fire powers along with his standard electricity powers+new electric ones.
i hope a single playthrough is long, and don't cut it short due to the "extra" level building mode, or the multiple paths for replay value excuses that devs use all the time. infamous was great for a 24.99$ game. i don't want to pay 60$ for something that short, and the level builder means nothing to me. all that aside, i do have it preordered, so we shall soon see.
The First one was really good. I liked the atmosphere, and the music. It felt like a Superhero game should feel. i would have liked to full out fly around in the environment though, because the Electric Glide seemed like they toyed with the idea.
Definitely check out the kiosk demo at your nearest best buy or gamestop. The game looks phenomenal and the combat system now has melee and is easier to use. The motion capture is wicked its like Cole reacts to everything in the environment now, can even wall run. DO NOT SKIP THIS GAME! Been drooling to get into UGC beta to see how awesome its going to be with even more content that increase the game's life cycle/ replayability.
I do have one question for Sony/Sucker Punch: Why is none of this available in the UK? Did we wrong you guys in a previous life or something? :( Will still get it though :)
xbox sales are 3x that of sony because everyone who owns a 360 HAS to buy 3. One RROD, than a refurbished, then a new one....that will eventually rrod....and FINALLY.....the Xbox slim with no rrod (no red led light means no rrod ;) ).
No one listen to chromeflamin...his peice of sh@t 360 must be broke, and he has nothing better to do. Its funny how no microsoft fans dont mention how there RROD machines needs THREE freakin discs to play some recent multi platform games... LAME. I own both consoles, but my 360 is a dust magnet...The game looks sweet, but its no suprise... another kick @ss exclusive from Sony.
@chromeflamin.. lol fanboy....only mad cause you know infamous shows up your gears of wars..and that crappy fable s***, your picture is even of psn being crossed out......you are why i laugh at rrod victims
Sony shows they're the best loyal company for games in the world, i hardly doubt microsoft would give muchless one or two out of 5 full games of the classics for free even for an outage... .. for real yo... U GO SONY!!
@Chromeflamin,...ummmm yeah buddy,... did you actually read that site post, before you posted the site??? a hacker tried 10,000 times before actually being successful at stealing only a few members reward points and nothing else,... um guy this has nothing to actually do with Sony, its a subsidiary company of Sony,... it wouldn't stop a game from coming out. Please know before you post bogus bashing attempts, we are here to talk about the preorder incentives of Infamous 2, and yet here you sit attempting a fledgling attempt at console bashing.
@CHROMEFLAMIN You may speak ill of Sony all you like, but I promise they don't care. Neither do we. Another Microsoft fanboi using this as your new platform to bash Sony and all it's games. Get some new material. It's played. So played.
@CHROMEFLAMIN you do know its a single player game right, playing on line is a mute point. but to answer your question, I ordered this game, and since its already gold i guess a lot of people did too. and i loved the first one.
Many big name games are coming out around the same time this year, and that isn't limited to the ass end of the year. This means that certain big name titles (which will most likely be great games) may be slept on.
@Hairygrim Yeah and don't forget Uncharted 2. Besides Uncharted 3 comes out this year and if it's anything like the last, it's another GOTY in the making.
@p0p0d0m - Yes, they hate playstation. Which is exactly why they've given Demon's Souls & MGS4 GotY awards...
@p0p0d0m Wtf are you talking about? Last year gamespots game of the year was demonsouls which is 1 awesome and 2 a playstation exclusive
@p0p0d0m I think you mean Gamespot will give it to Gears of War 3.. That's a 360 exclusive afterall. They'll probably give infamous an 8/10.. That's my guess.
this should get GOTY but since gamespot hates playstation so much then it will probably go to battlefield 3 how many ps3 eclusives lately deserve a ten and only got a 9.(LBP2)
@SiLenTWarrior29 Not to be nit-picky, but im pretty sure Batman: Arkum City is multiplatform. Typo? My money is on Battlefield 3 or Skyrim for GOTY, by the way. Although, a decision will be hard to come by with how many great titles are coming out. I'll be happy as long as it doesn't go to Call of Tony Hawk.
Im glad i have a ps3... best exclusives this year and infamous 2 is looking to be a monster game and still we got uncharted 3, twisted metal, batman arkum city... i wonder which game comes out on top as game of the year?
This company is called sucker punch.. What you don't get in the beginning of the game will come later like the Higgs watt blades.. Buy that hero edition if you want.. Huh and you will be omen victim of the sucker punch...
