Can't wait for it just like SWBF3 this will take up a lot of my time.

@truefan1 considering I played both games they are nothing alike in terms of gameplay mechanics or story. oh don't edit your comment you bashed infamous and sony saying that infamous stole ideas if not the entire game from crackdown.

Come on man, N4G doesn't have a limit for the number of words/letters you can type into the comment box. So please clarify what in the bloody hell is SWBF3? Star Wars Battle Field 3?

Regis1301d ago (Edited 1301d ago )

Star Wars Battle Front 3, I believed there is a 30 second trailer on youtube somewhere.

It's a Hoth trailer clip. Nothing much thou.

This time it will be 6 years in development and be a "Snow Themed" version of the same city yet again.

truefan11301d ago (Edited 1301d ago )

Oh yea, this game could be great with all the time spent in development. MSFT is bringing the games for XB1, great years ahead.

I do believe Infamous is a ripoff, but I realized that was a trollish comment, so I deleted it. I can't harp on ps4 players if I'm doing the same thing. I only had my comment up for like 1 minute lol.

I thought this and Infamous were totally different games. I loved the open world aspect of Crackdown. You could just do whatever you wanted in whatever order. Of course, going straight for the boss usually got you killed without the proper enhancements first.

optimus1301d ago

so one could say that it's a rip off from mega man then right? :p

maniacmayhem1301d ago (Edited 1301d ago )

I have no idea where you got that idea from. But inFamous did not rip off anything from Crackdown. If anything inFamous ripped off Hulk: Ultimate Destruction!

Just kidding!

Seriously though, that was a stupid comment.

WeAreLegion1301d ago

O_o I feel like this is an account you use just to mess with people. Crackdown is a fun game. I'll even go as far as to call it addicting. It's no inFamous though...especially inFamous 2.

They both have a superhero feel to them, but they're nothing alike.

Crossbones1301d ago

inFAMOUS is 10x better than Crackdown


MrSwankSinatra1301d ago

infamous plays nothing like crackdown.

guitarded771301d ago

Troll harder.

If you love Crackdown so much, shut up and enjoy the news.

DigitalRaptor1301d ago (Edited 1301d ago )

You hate on PS4 fanboys for the same things that you do, but on a grander scale. Weird. Not only that, but this was a ridiculously stupid comment, no wonder you only have one bubble.

inFamous is nothing like Crackdown and plays nothing like it. Crackdown was great. inFamous has proven itself to be consistently better, but if C3 can reach the lofty heights of the original game, sure bring it on.

Edit: and hahah at you revoking that hypocritical comment. Only just realising it now?

christocolus1301d ago (Edited 1301d ago )


I really enjoyed both games but i feel prototype was closer in style to infamous than crackdown and by the way i enjoyed prototype very much. Great game.wish ms would acquire the rights from activision. lt could be huge if properly managed.

Ontopic : if this rumor proves true it would mean great things for the franchise and im really glad the original devs(realtime worlds) are working with ruffian on this.

Regis1301d ago

I agree with you I need a new crackdown game after playing CD2 with my friends on 360 for 8hours a day.

"Former leads from developer Ruffian Games are said to be working on the project, along with former employees of Realtime Worlds, the original Crackdown developer."

That is very good news! I was worried when I saw Ruffian Games but knowing that former employees of the original game are there also puts me at ease.

These guys have a lot to prove after the lackluster part 2.

AnEwGuY1301d ago

Um....Ruffian Games was formed around former members of the Realtime Worlds team that made Crackdown.

Aces171301d ago

Really? 2 More years? I did they just start working on it today or something?

aviator1891301d ago (Edited 1301d ago )

No, I think by then (2016) it would have been in development for around 4 years.

XiSasukeUchiha1301d ago

Crackdown 3 going to be awesome
