Two IGN editors have played the PS4's most anticipated title. Here's how it feels.

Game looks like so much fun. Good to see people hyped after getting to play it.

First off all great avatar. What a great first record.

Secondly yes, I am so glad that Second Son is exceeding the expectations that I had of it after seeing how far they improved from game one to game two. Fantastic!
It may not be a launch title, but Jeebus is February soon or what?!

EDIT: I think I'm going to run through "Evil" first. The reason why is that when I did my second play through of inFamous 2 *spoilers* I felt sooooo guilty during/after a certain fight with a certain character that I liked. I remember saying out loud, in full-on role-playing mode, "Don't make me kill you Zeke". Not in a threatening way, but I genuinely wanted him to back off.

***end spoilers*** So what I want to do is be evil first, then end it on the "Good" ending, so that it will be sort of a palate cleanser.

I hope the morale system is more grey this time. Not blatantly obvious good/evil on top of a bright red or blue color lol. Love both infamous games, a ton, but that is the only thing that sort of pulled me out of an otherwise fantastic experience.

Conzul1737d ago

Careful which ending you play first: SP monitors the trophy data and uses it as a player poll now.

Personally, I thought the Evil ending of 2 was much better written, but I always play through morality games on the "good" side first (or what *I* think of as good - I'm kinda psycho)

After playing a few bits of Infamous 1 and 2 I knew it wasn't really for me. However this game looks way more polished, realistic, and mature.

The X1 has no answer for this game. And the xbox zealots must be sitting back and only wishing that it can come to X1 and while rethinking about the purchase of the X1.

If Infamous was a launch game than it would have converted way more people to PS4

I agree. Also Infamous series always have the best demos. I'm getting a PS4 day one and one of my most anticipated downloads is the Second Son demo lol.

creatchee1737d ago

Yeah for sure - I'm getting a PS4 when this launches. Hope there is a bundle!

Lwhit61737d ago

Can't wait to have you on board come next year!
You going to pick up the division too? I'm sooo stoked for that. Honestly never been excited for a game more than I am The Divison.

creatchee1736d ago

Oh yes. The Division looks prime!

JackISbacK1737d ago

this is my most awaited game on my ps4 and i know will be 1000x better than kz sf .

Plasticgearsolid1737d ago

why even say that they're so different?

Prime1571736d ago


Only trolls can somehow compare cross-genre games. Somewhere, someone else will say the opposite, "KZ:SF will be 1000x better than Infamous." That's fine. To each their own.

MightyNoX1736d ago

Can't wait for this game! Bring back Zeke! Cole, I'm okay with him bowing out this time but I wanna see Zeke again!

come_bom1736d ago (Edited 1736d ago )

Infamous: Second Son looks great. I'm getting the PS4 when Infamous releases :)

Syntax-Error1736d ago

Looks amazing, but also looks like PS3 can pull this off as well. When deciding between which NG system I want to get first it all comes down to games. I want this, but I also want TITAN FALL and that's where the war between decisions comes in.

thekhurg1736d ago

The PS3 could not pull this off...

Campy da Camper1736d ago

The ps3 could not pull this game off. 1080p with destructible enviorments and high res textures and fire animations? No way.

Saviour1736d ago

wish i have money to uy ps4 alongside xbox. this game looks so much fun, well hope by end of 2k14 i can enjoy this game too :)

Real next-gen open world right here

GarrusVakarian1737d ago (Edited 1737d ago )

Oh man, the Neon power sounds so cool. Day 1.

JackISbacK1737d ago

yeah it is a graet game but using touchpad does not looks that good.

Prime1571736d ago

I understand what you're saying, however I do think the touchpad will add a great element to the console games.

My first example is that in KZ they use it to control the OWL by swiping left, right, up and down.

My second example is that some games are using it to zoom in and out of the minimap much like you do on your phone.

I think it's up to the developer; yes, some will have stupid implementations and others will have great implementations. I think having it is generally a good thing, though.

mushroomwig1737d ago (Edited 1737d ago )

Scott Lowe is like a mini me version of Greg Miller, it's pretty disturbing.

Game-ur1737d ago

They even have a girl that looks like Greg Miller, it could be a requirement
