Retailers Break Street Date of May 26, Selling inFamous for PS3

700°
271w ago - One of the most anticipated PlayStation 3 games of 2009 will be officially released on May 26th, 2009.

However, if you look hard enough, you may be able to find the Infamous at retail stores right now and you might be able to purchase it.

At least two different people were able to acquire a copy of Infamous more than three weeks early. They were nice enough to share their exploits on [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] forums.

Infamous went to gold status on April 15th, so the broken street date was to be expected sooner or later. Hopefully, this will lead to Sony releasing Infamous early so impatient fans can get their hands on the long-awaited exclusive title.

The game has been getting some astonishing praise from critics, and appears like this one will be one of those great PS3 games of the year!

271w ago - Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein is back with the latest inFamous PS3 Video dubbed 'Power Trip' today, to quote:

Now that we can actually share it, I wanted you to see this new inFAMOUS video, entitled "Power Trip."

I was pretty much floored by it when we first showed it to media members last week, and thought you might enjoy it as well:

Like I said, we didn't forget to get your questions answered, look for those videos to come in the next few days.





Oh, and because I'm pretty sure some of you will ask - that kick ass music track was created especially for inFAMOUS, by [Register or Login to view links].
 

inFAMOUS - PS3 Trophies and Stunts Announced

271w ago - Sucker Punch Productions Software Engineer Chris Heidorn has unveiled some new inFAMOUS PS3 Trophies and Stunts, via PlayStation Blog:

Hi all, I'm Chris Heidorn, Software Engineer at [Register or Login to view links]. With inFAMOUS shipping in less than a month, you guys are probably starting to wonder about what types of trophies and stunts (yes, there will be stunts) will be in the game. Well, I'm here today to give you a brief inFAMOUS trophy and stunt lowdown.

So, we know you all love stunts and so do we at Sucker Punch. The testing team here had the super fun job of coming up with some cool ways Cole could take down and kill enemies by doing a combination or sequence of events.

To do this, the team relied upon their experiences playing the game everyday and noting where there were enemy setups and likely systemic behavior in the story missions and mini-missions that allowed them to pull off these cool stunts.

They created a list of 40 or more such combos, as we called them. We also enlisted the Sony test team for their list. Between the two teams we had a candidate list that totaled more than 80 stunts. To choose the best stunts for inFAMOUS, I created what I called an experience monitor.

272w ago - The switch on Sony's electrifying announcement may have just been flipped, as a Best Buy pre-order box for inFamous reveals the existence of a multiplayer beta test for Uncharted 2.

To quote: Sony began teasing "an electrifying announcement" to take place on April 27th regarding both Sucker Punch's inFamous and Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

Today a reader sent us this photo of a batch of newly opened Best Buy pre-order placeholder boxes for inFamous, which indicate that not only do pre-orders score players early access to the inFamous demo, they also receive a voucher for entry into the multiplayer beta test for Uncharted 2.

They key word here is multiplayer. Announcing that the sequel to one of the best single-player games on the PlayStation 3 is adding a multiplayer component certainly qualifies as electrifying. I'm certain we'll hear much more on this come April 27th.

In just over a month (May 26th, 2009) the PS3 will launch another big console exclusive in Sucker Punch Products third person shooter inFamous.

This coming just a few months after the release of Killzone 2 will leave many Sony fans asking for the first time since the PS3's release, "What game should I play?"

So why might InFamous be a killer game?

It is Crackdown meets Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. The games setting takes you to Empire City, a setting ravaged by a massive explosion supposedly caused by Cole McGrath, the character you play. You are free to wander the Empire City ala Crackdown only you have badass powers comparable to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

Your powers include shooting electricity at your enemies, forming and electrical shield to repel foes and their weapons and creating electrical grenades that are thrown and explode in similar fashion to plasma grenades in Halo. No more linear levels like those found in Force Unleashed which should result in a more creative use of your powers.

InFamous may not be as simple and mindless as it sounds though as it contains its own RPG like element in...
