If there's one thing i like about the Infamous games its how good they feel to play, very quick precise movements which made climbing and using your powers very smooth. From the gameplay of SS that ive seen so far it seems to be the same, which is a good thing.

Can not wait to play this game.

One of the things I like about Sony games in general is that they always aim to make the games look like a lot of effort was put into them. When I look at Crackdown, I just don't see that "quality" even though gamers still find it fun.

GarrusVakarian1579d ago (Edited 1579d ago )

I know what you mean, ive said the exact same thing before multiple times. There's just a certain quality to PS exclusives....i can never really put my finger on it. They are just well made, very polished games and you can tell how much love and attention went into them....that's the best way i can explain it.

Crackdown (1st game) was awesome btw.

PS4 for Christmas, SS is on the top of my list. FIFA14 is gonna have to hold me down until it's release

Honest_gamer1579d ago

Crackdown was made in Dundee a city 20 minutes from me famous for its junkies and drug use, not surprising the game had that cheap look to it however the game itself was one of the best I played on the 360 second one was meh

omi25p1579d ago

As long as they release Infamous Second Son in a bundle with the PS4 im happy.

Because at the moment there isnt any exclusive that interests me.

Infamous however is a series i love.

karl1579d ago

games like Crackdown just look generic and I am not a fan of developers who simply accept that as a style because gamers seem to not mind perhaps? Maybe Sony being a Japanese company seems to make a difference on how they want developers to approach their games. Instead of being cartoony, they want to go for realism or visa versa.

Necro_5591579d ago (Edited 1579d ago )

Really generic? I am a Sony fan, own a PS4 but Crackdown is far from generic. Your comment smells of ignorance. Crackdown was way ahead of its time. Before Prototype, before Saints Row 4, before Infamous. There was Crackdown. There isnt a game like Crackdown, its far from generic. It was one of the first cell shaded games on 7th gen and a leader in that regard. Crackdown 1 was an amazing game. There was nothing like it, it was totally new. Crackdown 2 was pretty bad. But Crackdown 1 is an fabulous game.

Hicken1579d ago

Yeah, I don't agree with Crackdown looking generic, either. I didn't play a LOT of games on 360, but Crackdown's one of my favorites, easily.

... and then there was Crackdown 2.

In any case, inFamous: SS looks great, and I can't wait to get my hands on it.

NateCole1579d ago

This game will be a dark horse next year for GOTY.

sobotz1579d ago (Edited 1579d ago )

Seriously? Infamous may be good, but it's not really a GOTY material like The Last of Us, GTA5, Portal, Arkham City, or Fallout. It's gonna be a 7-9 games.

And there's already too much good games coming in 2014 such MGSV, Witcher 3, Uncharted, Halo, Cyberpunk, and maybe Fallout 4.

wsoutlaw871579d ago

Im thinking it will be the witcher. that game just looks too good, too big, and too detailed. I cant wait. Infamous has a chance and could really gain a lot of new fans who wouldnt give a superhero game a chance. Uncharted is an obvious pick if it comes out. Theres so many great games like destiny and the division coming next year that its impossible to pick now.

Brix901579d ago

You forgot The Order: 1886...

ginsunuva1579d ago

Oh you've played Second Son?

SecondSon1579d ago

I've played with Second Son!

sobotz1579d ago (Edited 1579d ago )


Oh, and you've already played it either? Just take a look at the past, is the franchise ever won, or nominated for the GOTY award? And you think it's gonna be different this time? The core gameplay is almost look the same as previous.. with just more selectable powers and prettier graphics.

Infamous is great game, but not a GOTY material. Mark my words, it's gonna be 7-9 score range. And just wait and see if it's gonna be Arkham Origins all over again or not.

Rainstorm811579d ago

Arkham origins? Infamous looks like a true sequel to the infamous series made by sucker punch...Arkham was more of a cash grab made by a substitute studio

Infamous will definitely get more recognition this time around

Agent_00_Revan1579d ago

The only confirmation we've had for MGS is Ground Zeroes, and thats basically only an introduction, I highly doubt the full game will make 2014.

Uncharted Just got announced. Sure it may be some way along, but again, not likely to make 2014

And when was the last time Halo was a contender for GOTY?

DriveClub and Second Son in the same month. March should be a good time to own a PS4!

Honest_gamer1579d ago

Unless u think driving games absolutely suck like me then it will still be an amazing month coz of infamous and other games :D

JewyMcJew1579d ago

True but until then it is pretty dry!

I hope Sony at least re-compiles some of their PS3 games so there is something in the PSN store.

YoungKingDoran1579d ago

argh damn it - I'm going to be on a holiday in Vanuatu in march with the gf.
Gonna have to wait till i get home.

wait a sec... remote play!
oh yeah, she's going to have a good holiday lol

DanielGearSolid1579d ago

Fire from the hip is cool, useful, for firing off quick shots while avoiding enemies

Enemy1579d ago

I still want L1 aiming though.

shivvy241579d ago

I think it still has aiming, have a look at the new 5min gameplay, there was 2 moments when it looks like the camera zooms real close to his back

RaDhi1579d ago

I loved infamous games. But I hope there is an option for L1 aiming in second son

Z_-_D_-_31579d ago

Don't you guys mean L2?! Don't forget, we're in a new generation :D

Conzul1579d ago

L2 I hope.
Yeah though the way his arm just points at enemies while firing is a bit weak, probs won't be in the final build.

Infamous games all look awesome in slow-mo for some reason. Hell, SP knows it - nearly all their trailers are half or more slow-mo.

I love inFamous but the destruction on Second Son makes the first two look sterile now by comparison.

SS looks so much more alive. The swan dive attach is just amazing. It looks like a set piece but its not, its just a move that you can do, and the environment in fully reactive to it.

I remember the first time I saw it thinking, theres no way that dinosaur is destructible. I've never been so happy to be wrong.
