Why inFAMOUS: Second Son Shouldn't Be a PS4 Launch Game

Push Square: "Sucker Punch is supposedly planning to cough up inFAMOUS: Second Son in time for the PlayStation 4’s launch later this year. While the Bellevue-based studio failed to cite a timeline during its dramatic portion of last month’s PlayStation Meeting press conference, a couple of employee resumes uncovered over the weekend hinted at the title’s 2013 release. But with the PlayStation Vita’s post-launch struggles still ringing in Sony’s ears, should the platform holder resist the temptation to release too many first-party titles at once?" (inFamous: Second Son, PS4)

Speak for yourself. I say it should be a PS4 launch title and it's a day one for me.
SDF Repellent  +   491d ago
Man, you are using "Day One" like it is going out of style.


"Another great PS3 exclusive. Day one. "

"Day One!!! "

"Day one"

"Day one"

"Wow! That's a lot of exclusives. Most of them are DAY ONES for me. "

"Day one."

I dont see whats wrong with him wanting the games days one, if he has the money, why not? Some people can save up for a system launch.
princeofthabay  +   491d ago
Kinda sad how you went though his post history to find all of that.Nothing better to do?
NateCole  +   491d ago
And i can buy all launch PS4 games on launch if i want to. What is it to you that other people will buy many games on day one?.

Wow, you not only looked all that up, you pasted the reply, and the the link to the reply so we can see it for ourselves, (as if we would bother.)

You could have just said, man, you say day one alot.

Nope, I just typed in "StrongMan and Day One" in Google and it has literally 3 pages of results that I can use. Took me like 30 seconds. You gotta love Google.

EDIT @ Bathyj
"You could have just said, man, you say day one alot. "

Without proper citation, my post would loose its effectiveness; similar to speculating these Doomed MS rumors without any proof. I always have my ducks in a row before posting.

Fair enough. Its a duck thing.
Hicken  +   491d ago
There may not be "proof," but there's evidence behind the rumors. ( http://n4g.com/news/1216318... Whether or not it's credible remains to be seen.

But that's neither here nor there.

The point is that it doesn't matter. You could have had your ducks in a dodecahedron; your comment would still be just as irrelevant.

You are trolling in every ps3 article.. since.. day one?.
You and greenpower are the two worst ms trolls, and thats sad because theres a lot a cool 360 or multi console users that can get opinions worth to be heard.. but u two, are just trolling 24/7

Except it's completely inneffective and just paint you as a creep , however short and quick the research was .

I could understand b*tching when he trolls something , but complaining about enthusiasm for games is pushing it a lot

As a great blues man once said, you can't lose what you never had. The guy likes PS3 exclusives. Many people do. You just seem desperate to play the fanboy card, which of course only makes you look like a fanboy whether you are one or not.

Yes Day one for me along with ever over PS4 game. Broke Day two. Its cool. BTW its not like the word is not out that PS4 is coming end of year. Everyone who is interested should be saving their money now. I know I am. Going in with at least a stack. Need a PS4, second controller, and all the launch games. Also putting some money aside just in case they launch a new service. Oh I'll be renewing my Music Unlimited around that time too. SAVE SAVE SAVE PEOPLE.

Thats exactly how it has to be done, you sound like me a bit when it comes to console launches, i dont want to miss anything on launch day thats worth the money, launch night is gonna be mad in my house, the mrs will be up and wanting ago and so will my oldest son so a second controller is a must lol. Cant wait getting really excited for the new consoles
fei-hung  +   491d ago
Stupid article.

What's next? Killzone Shadow Falls should not be a PS4 launch title? Drive Club should not be a launch title? Halo 5 shouldn't be a launch title?

Sometimes, looking at the the headlines on some of the submitted articles, you wonder whether gaming journalists are trying to cripple the gaming industry or to help it.

Someone please create a website which reviews gaming journalism and the various articles they pull out of their backsides and I will happily dedicate some of my free time for it.

PS4 should not launch when it launches!
BlmThug  +   491d ago
The quality of news articles posted on N4G has been drastically reduced. Two or three years ago, this website was decent but now it's gone down the drain
GalacticEmpire  +   491d ago
It all depends on how many games will be available at launch. If there's loads then there's no need to rush everything out at once. People like a large cvhoice at launch though and the more games that appeal to various different people, the more initial sales the PS4 will enjoy.

Sony have so many top class 1st party dev studios that I wouldn't worry even if they did through everything at us at once, you know they will follow up with awesomeness.
smashcrashbash  +   491d ago
Bite your tongue.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   491d ago
dont get me wrong, i see what the articles trying to say, but i think a quality launch title will get a lot of attention no matter what company it comes from. big or small, the new infamous is going to kick ass and sell LOTS!
Bathyj  +   491d ago
They do need to be careful about staggering the releases a bit. While you can never have TOO many games, you dont want a drought after a flood.

I wouldnt mind inFamous coming in the 2nd or 3rd month of launch, especially if Watchdogs is a launch title. And all the more time for polish.
younglj01  +   491d ago
sniff an hater I'm not sure though?
ziggurcat  +   491d ago
"should the platform holder resist the temptation to release too many first-party titles at once?"

uh... no.

and it's going to be a release title, so making an article (that i won't click on because it's a poorly disguised sony/ps4/vita doom article) on why it shouldn't is pointless.
Bathyj  +   491d ago
Hes not being a hater at all. Read the article.

Hes saying may releases should stagger a bit so there arent 10 games you want on the first day, and then nothing else to buy for the next 6 months. And there no point in have too many games if people will only buy one or two anyway.

He has a point, pacing is important, it needs to be a steady stream of games and theres not a hint of hating in the article. Stop just looking at titles and thinking you know everything the writer is trying to say. I know thats hard now days, with so many hitseeking titles, but this isnt the case here.

Shssss...Sony fanboys only read the headline and go berserk on anything negative about the PS.

As long as you have been here, I would have thought that you would know that by now.
Ult iMate  +   491d ago
Make a proper, non-sensationalist headline then. Journalists are responsible for the whole article, including the headline, you know.

The word "hater" never entered my mind, and I don't see it as negative either. It's just a weird idea to base your release window theories on such an early list like this article does. I think we all expect more launch window titles, as well as titles just past the launch window, to be announced throughout the year. But go ahead and say the word "fanboy". I know how you love it.
Drainage  +   491d ago
this aint a day 1 with kz4 at launch, unless youre a casual who doesnt play multiplayer for more than 1 week. infamous will price drop in a 3-4 months at amazon
