Every time Delsin appears, it seems I'm actually looking at Troy baker.

GarrusVakarian1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

Troy Bakers uglier younger brother more like, lol.

You guys think Delsin is more handsome than Troy Baker? Y'all crazy. Im a heterosexual male and even i think Troy Baker is a good looking man.

cleft51664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

Your statement is weird Lukas. Pedrof93 said he looks like Troy Baker not that he was more or less handsome than he is. Also, what does it matter if you're straight or gay in saying if you think someone is handsome or not. There are a lot of good looking people in this world, you don't need to give your sexual orientation to acknowledge facts.

After a quick image search I can see how someone would say Delsin looks like Troy Baker. Regardless, I am really looking forward to this game. Everything about it looks great, including the characters shown so far.

>"Im a straight male but..."

Thats how it all starts

alexkoepp1663d ago

"Could only be made on PS4" yet I guarantee the game is actually being made on high end PC's lol. Let's see all the development team working on PS4's please, show us the pic.

thehitman1663d ago


So... they would develop a game for a system on a different system that does not have the tools or architecture to test it on. Yup that makes a lot of sense /facepalm.

Elda1663d ago

@Cleft5,you're right!but guys have to reiterate that,because some don't have that mental courage.

KillrateOmega1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

Uh, he never said anything about how sexually attractive Delsin Rowe is in comparison to Troy Baker... All he said was that they look eerily alike, which is true and not surprising considering the techniques they used.

Conzul1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

His purpose in stating his sexual orientation was to outline how close Troy is to being a standard of male beauty, the idea being that because he is hetero he is not as adept at rating the male appearance as, say, a woman or a homosexual - because (since he is neither of the aforementioned) he does not find the qualification of male appearance useful to his sexual paradigm.

If you wanna be politically correct, then why hide it? Don't make your opponent out to be weird or to have a problem with words.

That's just underhanded and disrespectful.

UnwanteDreamz1663d ago

Godwin's Law

As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.

The whole vibe of the PS4 is just so powerful, I don't understand how other people can try so hard to deny. I am really excited to see that Sony is going to be pushing the PS4 so hard, so soon. Infamous: Second Son is only the first in what is to come.

FamilyGuy1663d ago

I'm happy to see a title like this get released so early in the PS4 life cycle.

Locknuts1663d ago

Compared to a PS3 it definitely is.

hay1664d ago

True. And there's even more coming soon:

The only reason I can think of is: because Sucker Punch is owned by Sony so they are not allowed to make it anywhere else.

This game better be way more impressive than Kill Zone:SF or you guys will be a deflated bunch. Hope really hanging high on this game and I am at a loss as to why. I might just be that good, but I have seen nothing to deserve this worshiping as yet. The protagonists seems way over powered.

MikeGdaGod1663d ago

"Hope really hanging high on this game and I am at a loss as to why."

you obviously haven't played the previous 2 games or read any of the of reviews or fan feedback.

SilentNegotiator1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

LOL "Kill Zone"
Try harder, troll. You and your attempt to create FUD for Infamous:SS. Pathetic.

Foxhound9221663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

You've gotten very good at trolling sir. I've never seen you make a valid point based on facts. What's not to like? Unique characters and setting, open world environment, super powers, amazing graphics, and fluid gameplay. These games don't get high ratings for nothing. Go play your Xbox and shut up.

Omegasyde1663d ago

"The protagonists seems way over powered."

LoL, should they not be? And you can still die from 2+ people shooting at you.

(SPOILER:There are other super-powered people in Infamous:second son.)

FamilyGuy1663d ago

Lol, you've obviously never played an Infamous game.
1. You gain more abilities over time, you don't just start out with everything.
2. The cities are filled with enemy ai that will attack you suddenly and they're in groups.
3. Bosses are typically accompanied by minions too making all those powers necessary if you want to stand a chance.
4. Above all else these games are designed to be free-roaming, super powered FUN. And they are fun. And this game has been quoted at multiple sources to "be as fun as it looks".

If you don't get the hype you to watch more videos and do it with your fanboy goggles off this time -_^

princejb1341663d ago

I'm a playstation gamer and I hate killzone also
But having played the last 2 infamous as well as beating them several times
Trust me infamous second son is a must buy

Hell I don't need an article to tell me why. It's being made be a first party studio, that alone is enough of a reason. The same reason Halo can "only be done" on the XB1.

Sony just killing it. Heck of a turnaround from their last launch (ps3)

FamilyGuy1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

I think the PS3 had some really nice games a few months to a year after launch. MotorStorm and Heavenly Sword were both released early on and they were great. Folklore and Ratchet and Clank Tools of Destruction were nice too.

I enjoyed my PS3 when I got it but Sony is definitely stepping up their game with the PS4s release-year line up.

Mr Marvel1663d ago

PS3 release may not have been great, but by the last few years of the generation Sony got their act together and the PS3 was killing it.

If I was to list my top ten games of the generation, more than half would be PS3 exclusives released in the last 3-4 years.

amiga-man1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

I think it is fair to say it could not be made to the quality of the PS4 on any other console, if they cut down resolution, frame rate and graphical quality other consoles might manage something like.

but then it wouldn't be next gen would it

theWB271664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

You're right...if 30fps is next gen. The other things are definitely most likely true. It does look good on all other fronts.

You got that proof it has no dips? I'd expect it to...even still it will look good. I'm teetering heavily on crossing over to the PS4 first. 30fps locked in the midst of all the destruction would be impressive.

I don't get what you mean. I just said every thing else is impressive. Below I stated I doubt the other console could this game EXACTLY the same as the PS4. I just asked is 30fps next gen.

The rest of what you wrote is moot really.

GarrusVakarian1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

30fps with no dips, 1080p and all the effects on an open world game as good looking as this certainly IS next gen ;)

amiga-man1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

Depends WB27 when it is outputting the sort of graphics this game is a solid 30 frames is more than acceptable especially when a certain other console would struggle on resolution and framerate if it even tried to do anything nearly as impressive.

GTgamer1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

Would you prefer 900p or 720 with dips below 30fps in a open world is that your Definition of Next Gen since you always defend the XOne exclusive games :/.
You made it seem like a Stable 30fps should be something easy to accomplish in Second Son with everything going on in that game don't act like you ddidn't try to downplay Second Son inferring that its not next gen -_-.

theWB271664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

You made it seem like a Stable 30fps should be something easy to accomplish in Second Son with everything going on in that game don't act like you ddidn't try to downplay Second Son inferring that its not next gen -_-."

"You're right...if 30fps is next gen. The other things are definitely most likely true. It does look good on all other fronts."

The OP mentioned 30fps as being next gen. It isn't. Last gen games ran at 30fps. My other comments stated that if it is in fact stable and only dips during the most intensive sections then that's great.

I think you're seeing what you want to see based on me being a fan of Xbox. I also stated I doubt the X1 could run infamous EXACTLY the same as PS4.

Again I ask...dafuq are you talking about? Nowhere did I downplay infamous...ONLY 30FPS being a factor that makes it next gen.

extermin8or1663d ago

3rd person action game-hifher than 30fps isnt necessary at all.

mkis0071663d ago

This and many hands on people are saying that they haven't noticed a single dropped frame. This game could probably go unlocked and hit 60 occasionally, but locking it would be be better.

MetaReapre1663d ago

Well I would assume a game on our current gens should be able to hold 30 fps without dipping. It should be a staple now that some console games are hitting 60fps.

theWB271664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

Hey, I'm agreeing with you. At this point...I doubt the other console could run it EXACTLY the same as the PS4. If it sticks to 30 majority of the time and only dips during the heaviest of destruction then damn...what could be said.

EDIT- Ha a little hope huh : )

amiga-man1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

There hope for you yet WB27

PS4 a true next gen console and this game is going to show it.

lifeisgamesok1664d ago

I don't see anything that couldn't be done on the Xbox One

GarrusVakarian1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

Of course you don't.

If Ryse can't even hold 30fps at 900p and Dead Rising STILL dips below 30fps post-patch at 720p....there's no way the X1 could handle an open world game like Infamous SS at the same settings as the PS4 version. Add to that the fact 90% of multiplats (apart from ones that have been made with parity in mind) look and run better on the's pretty clear to me that the PS4 is the only console this could run on at 1080p 30fps with all the effects (particles,lighting,destructio n etc).

Anything game the X1 can run, the PS4 could run better, the same can't be said vice versa. That much is already clear with the resolutions and framerates of each consoles games (both exclusives and multiplats). Open your eyes.

MasterCornholio1664d ago

The PS4 is more powerful than the Xbox One so its logical that its capable of doing things that Microsoft's console can't do. Like run a game like Tomb Raider at 60FPS for example.

amiga-man1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

I don't see anything that couldn't be done on the Xbox One

You really need to make an appointment with an optician my friend

SoulSercher6201663d ago

Well maybe if you took off those thick fanboy glasses you would see it's impossible to replicate on Xbone.

DigitalRaptor1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

That is cute, it really is.

Listen to the folks below you, or maybe actually do your research on what it's doing for an open-world title. Second Son is widening the gulf even more. Good luck when The Order: 1886 comes out later this year.

HammerKong1663d ago

hey bud he is not compaering it from xb1 ,he was compaering it from ps3 ,there is no need to hyper ,xb1 can handle this game ,whu not but xb1 is not powerful enough to handle this at 1080p 30fps .it would be 900p 30fps ,devs are not saying it i'am saying it. we must accept the truth that ps4 is powerful but it does not make xb1 look bad ,it still can handle mindblowing graphics but at little resolution ,there is nothing to be worid there will be great games on xb1 this gen and waht make games look beutiful is art style and power avilable to you ,resolution does not makes game look beutiful they only make game look crispier.

I_am_Batman1663d ago

I don't understand why it's so hard to admit that the Xbox One isn't quite as powerful as the PS4. It's not like it's a weak console. You're getting great looking games and there are very promising titles like Quantum Break coming. By denying that the PS4 is more powerful you make the topic bigger than it should be because the discussions won't stop. Just enjoy your games and accept the truth.

Cueil1663d ago

there isn't a single thing on the PS4 that can't be done on the Xbox One... they both are generationally equal on CPU and GPU fronts... the PS4 may be able to do MORE of some things... as for Lukas_Japonicus' comment on DR3 I think there is more going on in DR3 then will ever be going on in infamous and that's not even taking into account that it is a fun game

Jughead34161664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

If this were for XBOX, something would have to be sacrificed. Maybe framerate or resolution or textures. PC could handle it of course, but no other console. The Sony exclusives may be the closest console games get to PC.

HighResHero1664d ago

Some of the PS4 exclusives will look about as good or better for a while, only at possibly lower fps and resolution than many PC titles can achieve. All the other bells and whistles will be there.

Jughead34161663d ago

Man, even 1st party titles for XBOX have had to sacrifice framerate or resolution. Forza 5 is the only game at 1080P 60FPS, but only the cars look super detailed. The environments and audience look last gen. Ryse 900P, Dead Rising 3 lower than 30FPS, Quantum Break 30FPS. NFL games will be a 60FPS though. That Dang on Kinect.
