If so i truly hope the evil ending is the true one. They can make an action mmo off it.
LOGICWINS  +   1038d ago
Hopefully its not a PS4 game. Theres still plenty of juice to squeeze out of the PS3.
Relientk77  +   1038d ago
Spike VGA's on Fri Dec 7th 9 PM ET/6 PM PT

In 6 days

an infamous 3, would ruin the point of the good ending of infamous 2

I mean, what can they do for 3? A kessler prequel would be pointless, continuing from the bad ending would suck, because nothing can challenge cole at that point

Let them end it... it ended well, and a sequel imo ruins the message of Infamous 2

@Nimblest- My guess is that Sucker Punch will allow gamers to follow through with both good/evil endings, just like Infamous 2. However with Infamous 3, both campaigns will be RADICALLY different.
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1038d ago



So your dead or OP as f***

They can't continue with cole

Releasing a new Infamous game next year is very very bad. Sales are not going to be near good. I am telling you Sony, A new Infamous game should better be a launch title for PlayStation 4/the new PlayStation.
Hatsune-Miku  +   1038d ago
I'm hoping for a ps4 or xbox next announcement or a preview of a graphically intensive game coming to next gen systems. Something like a killzone 4, uncharted 4, motorstorm 4, resistance 4 or something amazing.

I can't wait for the VGA show
turgore  +   1038d ago
I got the good ending. I don't see it.
DragonKnight  +   1038d ago
@Nimblest: Who says that an inFamous 3 game has to be about Cole? It could be a completely new character(s) and setting, new powers etc... Don't be limited by the timeline. Or it could be a Conduit that goes up against Cole after someone found a way to stop him.

@th3n00bg4m3r: Gee, an install base of 70 million potential buyers vs an install base of 0. I wonder which one Sony should go for. Hmmmm. /s

Regardless of any reveals, the VGA's will continue to be the atrocity of the industry and I will not watch.
Bimkoblerutso  +   1038d ago
^Yeah, screw that show. I'm not "bro" enough to sit through all that frat BS for 2 hours. I'll get what I need off the internet.

Do we really need another article every time Keighley plugs the same information about the 2012 VGAs?
SilentNegotiator  +   1038d ago
"A kessler prequel would be pointless"

Would it? Kessler clearly had some crazy adventures leading up to going after Cole. The alternative timeline between him figuring out what the beast is and living a different life would make a fine plot that could easily setup a new game. It could even still have a in/famous approach to it....especially since everything will change at the end (he can either decide to go from good to "by all means necessary", or go from infamous to continuing a "by all means necessary" approach). Either way, when tragedy strikes, it makes sense for him to become who he becomes.

I hope we see AT LEAST 1 Next-Gen title.
LOGICWINS  +   1039d ago
I rather they not announce anything that'll be released 2-3 years down the line. We still haven't seen any real gameplay of Rainbow Six: Patriots or that Guillermo del Toro game.
Kran  +   1038d ago
Guillermo del Toro's game was cancelled... but then picked up again merely days ago.

We probably wont see it for a long time yet.
LOGICWINS  +   1038d ago
Shame. I wonder what went wrong.
Skate-AK  +   1038d ago
THQ is what went wrong. They dropped it and someone's else picked it up. They havnt announced who but I have a feeling it's Ubisoft that picked up Insane.
elpresador  +   1038d ago
We will see a few. Regardless of how people feel about it, the Wii U is the first of the next gen consoles. Just cause it released probably at least 1 year earlier than the other 2, does not mean that it is NOT next gen. SO, seeing that the Wii U is a next gen console AND they will show games for it, you will deffinately see at least ONE next gen title.

"Surprise for oldschool Gamers"
Syphon Filter 4 i called it
Relientk77  +   1038d ago
That would be awesome
Campy da Camper  +   1038d ago
I would be more excited for this than to hear the new Rainbox 6 has no loadouts, perks and you can host your own lobbies.
DOMination-  +   1038d ago
That isn't old school. Its Contra.
Sgt_Slaughter  +   1039d ago
They say this every year... the only year they actually had news-worthy reveals was I think 2008 or 2009.
Mac is OK  +   1039d ago
They had the Skyrim unveil in 2010.
Rockefellow  +   1038d ago
The Last of Us.
majiebeast  +   1038d ago
They have had some good reveals i mean last year Last of us stole the show. Also they actually nominated some good games this year as Journey and the walking dead not just blockbusters like Call of duty means there is hope for this show.

What? Sony showed off 1st party world premiers. I'm pretty sure that's news worthy at the VGA's.
Laxman  +   1038d ago
grailly  +   1038d ago
I came here to say this :)

or agree as you already said it
SKUD  +   1039d ago
No matter how much hype. Its still awkward to watch.
NYC_Gamer  +   1039d ago
It's just cheesy and full of mainstream garbage.
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1038d ago

I could go on about how much is wrong with that sentence, but I think you can figure it out yourselves
JellyJelly  +   1038d ago
Cheesy? Did someone say Doritos??
Ares90  +   1038d ago
Who remembers that dude dressed as a soldier teabagging last year?

Oh god, that was PATHETIC
Y_5150  +   1038d ago
If they put out something like Skyrim two years back. And Last of Us last year. We should realized that there would be at least be ONE game that would have most of us jumping two our feet or crying with joy. :)
Convas  +   1038d ago
Alan Wake 2. Halo 2 Anniversary. InFamous 3. MERCENARIES 3!!!

I want them. One of them will happen. I'm calling it.
Skate-AK  +   1038d ago
MERCENARIES3!! Make it happen.
MRMagoo123  +   1038d ago
If they do mercs3 they better make it a damn lot better than the last pile of dump they made, I was expecting so much from number 2 after playing the first but it was soooooooooo bad.
-MD-  +   1038d ago
Mercenaries 2 and Infamous 2 were awful though, you guys really want sequels to those?
DragonKnight  +   1038d ago
Yeah you wish inFamous 2 sucked. That game was excellent and your 1 bubble tells everyone what they need to know about your taste in games.

It is not a surprise. We already know about it.
Laxman  +   1038d ago
It hasnt been revealed though. No trailer or official details.
Norrison  +   1038d ago
Half life 3.
Proeliator  +   1038d ago
No one has ever hoped for HL3, you're crazy sir! :)
QuantumWake  +   1038d ago
I'm really hoping for an Alan Wake 2 announcement. The VGAs seem like a perfect time to at least tease the game. Looking forward to the other unveils!
greatcrusader44  +   1038d ago
Hoping for a Fallout 4 trailer
ajax17  +   1038d ago
I second that.

just reading that exited me. I never really thought about a fallout 4.
Plagasx  +   1038d ago
Mirror's Edge 2 plz.
WeAreLegion  +   1038d ago
Best game fueled by Mt. Dew...

I wonder which game is going to win that one...
SolidGear3  +   1038d ago
Fallout 4 and I'd die right then!
ALLWRONG  +   1038d ago
I bet there is only one more.
Bolts  +   1038d ago
Bring out the nextgen consoles already and crank up that hype machine.
StreetsofRage  +   1038d ago
Start showing teasers of next gen...I'm sooooooooooo ready for it! E32013 cannot come fast enough!
showtimefolks  +   1038d ago
Fallout 4 on next gen systems
Infamous new game don't have to call it 3 just a prequel or side story
What the ECM is the 2nd team from ND working on? Uncharted 4 on ps4?
Crackdown 3?
Syphone filter
Getaway 3?

This year at VGA they have some good games up for GOTY. I am hoping for journey to pull an huge upset. It's such an under rated game and deserves more attention
XXXL  +   1038d ago
Lookin forward to seeing some actual gameplay from Lords of Shadow 2
elpresador  +   1038d ago
What I want to see is actual people presenting awards or talking about games, systems, ANYTHING ENVOLVING THE GAMES INDUSTRY to be actual people you KNOW play games and not some crappy star of the minute BS like when they had the Jersey Shore cast on. I mean on most of these spike awards you get MAYBE one A star and the rest are like C and lower and you know none of them know jack about gaming.

I dunno if I came off clear there as it is hard to say exacrly what I mean but I am sure the people on here know and/or feel the same way that I do.
Sclavius  +   1038d ago
yes, yes, and more yes. sometimes its cringeworthy. Its because the video game industry isn't viewed seriously enough to warrant a serious award show. I'm hoping for the day when video games get somekind of academy award type deal. Where you'll see Gabe Newell or Ken Levine or other people who know that video games are not just for the shit stained mongoloid call of duty/madden purists.
Zichu  +   1038d ago
A bit to late for me in the UK lol. I just want to see what new games are revealed. If they are massive games, pretty sure they will appear on N4G.
Sclavius  +   1038d ago
Im hoping to see the next Rocksteady Batman game, or at least something from rocksteady. Infamous 3 would be awesome but i wonder how the story would be handled.
Ares90  +   1038d ago
I began playing the Arkham games this year and wonder why didn't I play them earlier

YES! Bring out another kick-ass Batman game!!!!
Commandar_Shepard  +   1038d ago
Fallout 4
poo342947294792  +   1038d ago
fallout 4 is all I need
shutUpAndTakeMyMoney  +   1038d ago
syphon filter on ps4??
Orionsangel  +   1038d ago
Red Dead Rebellion Teaser Trailer from Rockstar.
andrewsqual  +   1038d ago
Four years ago saw the Debut of Uncharted 2, this time two years ago saw the debut of Uncharted 3. This year will be Uncharted 4 or Unkarted to stick to Naughty Dogs true trilogy then a racing game spin off.
