Most Wanted Next-Gen: Infamous 3

OnlySP writes:

You can take the blue lightning, or you can take the red lightning.

That’s the ultimate choice afforded to you by the inFAMOUS titles, a series of Sony-exclusive open-world action games for the PS3 that allow you to unleash devastating superpowers within a world and story affected by your decisions. It’s a series that’s garnered excellent sales and immense critical acclaim, though there are undeniably improvements and upgrades that can be made to such a concept with the coming of the next generation of consoles. We believe it’s a perfect candidate for a series that would successfully continue onto the PS4, and we’re about to tell you why.

(Keep in mind that there are spoilers ahead for anyone who hasn’t played the previous two titles.)

The story is too old to be commented.

Why do people think that they can't continue from the good ending. It ended with a lightning bolt in the shape of a question mark so obviously they have plans for that ending and Sucker Punch always go with the good ending, being bad in the game is just a choice but the story is all about Cole being a hero not a villain.

I think some conduits, the strong ones would of survived at the end so Cole and Kuo would still be around. As for Nix...I really don't care to be honest.

Thing which I don't get though....did Cole really defeat the actual Beast. If John was the Beast then future Cole, Kesler, would of killed John when he was working for him.

Yeah I honestly don't get why everyone assumes that a 3rd game can't happen. Like you said the good end has the ? during the quick little lighting flash so they clearly left it open. But they could also go in a different direction and perhaps make the game as if Cole was the bad guy and was trying to redeem himself for what happened at the end of Infamous 2.

Either way Infamous 2 is one of my favorite games of all time(in my top 5) and I would LOVE to see another game in the series and having it next gen would be just that much sweeter.

Cole could have survived but Kuo. I highly doubt it. While i do want a new inFamous 3, i'd rather play a prequel involving Kessler IMO

Root1982d ago

Well a prequel would be a spin off for the PSV rather then inFAMOUS 3

I'm sure Kuo could of's there story afterall, just write it in.

himdeel1982d ago

I want a Vita inFamous game and REALLY hope to see an inFamous game in the PS4 launch lineup.

(spoiler alert) If john survived and became the beast in the second game kuo could have survived.

KingMe421981d ago

Because we have 2 totally different endings. Sure Cole could survive but all other conduits are dead. In bad end he is literally OP with an army of conduits.

Not to mention it would ruin the whole moral blue/red thing it has goind on. Forcing player to make a pre made choice before the game even starts. Good guy start or bad guy start? And For bad end Beast Cole would have to be nerfed again, it would be a really bad diea to start OP in bad and not good. And nerfing Beast Cole would just sound like some bullshit talk since something similar already happened when the Beast zapped Coles powers at the start of inFamous 2.

I love inFamous as much as the next guy. But inFamous 3 simply can not happen in not way that would remain canon as well as keep the originals moral choice system (as imperfect as it is to some)

pr0t0typeknuckles1983d ago

infamous 3 would be cool, but the only thing about the good ending is that every conduit is dead, and if the lightning bolt only hit cole and hes now alive, who is he gonna fight that would be interesting,and nix and kuo are both dead so i really dont know.

PockyKing1982d ago

There's always an enemy to fight in super hero games haha. Sucker Punch will come up with something awesome.

pr0t0typeknuckles1982d ago

of course theres always someone to fight but if coles the only conduit to me its just boring to see him fighting normal humans with guns and technology, the only way i see the good ending happening is that the conduits didnt actually die but are actually thrown into a hybernation state that makes it seem as if there dead and they all begin to wake up, including the return of the beast, only hes much more powerful and is bloodthirsty to kill cole now.

PockyKing1982d ago

He probably wouldn't be the only conduit. If he survived, why couldn't others? I'm sure Cole and his group weren't the only conduits that knew about that device..

ceballos77mx1982d ago

How about using the bad ending and make Cole the bad guy, the good Guy would be a new conduit that wants revenge on Cole for what he did to his city.

Root1982d ago

They were making conduits in inFAMOUS 2...look at Kuo she wasn't a natural conduit was she but she was experimented on

Who isn't to say the Government isn't trying to make conduits as weapons and terrorist organizations get the same idea to create ones to take over

We don't know if every conduit is dead, if Cole survived maybe the stronger ones survived aswell making the natural conduits rare people.

pr0t0typeknuckles1982d ago

actually kuo was a conduit from the start the experiment just sped up the process like how the ray sphere gave cole his powers much earlier than he should have, but as i said before maybe they arent dead but are in a hybernation state where they just seem dead, it s been in a few comics if im not mistaken.

all in all if infamous 3 is to be made then the best scenario is that it has 2 completly different sories one where good cole and the other conduits arent actually dead as stated before with an even stronger beast, and evil cole is trying to fully take over the world with a new conduit trying to stop him.

Root1982d ago

Well we don't know if Kuo was an actually conduit, it's never actually mentioned

However they say something in the rescue mission it is said her blood was replaced with some liquid and then later Nix mocks her by saying something like "Are you mad they made you into a monster". So we don't know if she was one or not but in my opinion if they replaced her blood then she was made into one unlike Nix and Cole

If the game has two stories it means that which ever one you've went for is going to have a short campaign. They may aswell pick a side because that idea wouldn't work in the long run, it's clear that they will go for the good ending because least then you can decide to go bad again by player choice in iF3

kneon1982d ago

If you follow the stereotypical comic book story rules then seldom are major characters permanently dead, and there's always another bad guy waiting in the wings.

infamous was one of the best games this gen in my opinion, it would be nice to see an entirely new story line with a new character with awesome powers though.

smashcrashbash1982d ago

No way. The evil ending would be so much better. Fight for dominance between the Conduits. They can bring everyone back including Transients,Ice Men,the Reapers and the First Sons.Cole and everyone he saved and them duking it out to see who dominates the planet. But I am also certain if they use the good ending that if Cole could survive to make another game you can be sure other Conduits could have survived as well.I mean what are the odds that the blast killed EVERY single Conduit in the world? Even if 1% still survived that is still enough to cause trouble.
