Delsin starts off with basic fire (smoke) powers but as the game goes on he'll take the powers of others. So by the end of the game he'll have far more power than Cole ever did.
RedSoakedSponge  +   462d ago
i personally hope to see the powers of infamous 1 and 2 thrown in there to add even more variety. but hey! thats just me :P
Bathyj  +   463d ago
I'm glad the first thing I did with my PS4 (besides take a selfy with my arm around it) was chuck a 1TB hybrid in it.
Monolith  +   462d ago
Yeah I really need to get a new hard drive. Actually I want to get the largest capacity available. Can the ps4 use 2t yet?
Battlefieldlover  +   462d ago

Ya it does. But finding the Drive is hard because it's new and obviously cool as hell lol.

RedSoakedSponge  +   462d ago
does anyone know how save data is handled on ps4? like... if i deleted a game, will it delete the save data for that game as well (like the vita) or keep it (like the ps3)?
GameSpawn  +   462d ago

The two are kept separate. Also, if you have signed up for Plus all your PS4 saves are uploaded to cloud storage by default. Make sure to manage through the "Storage" in the settings menu to avoid in snafu's.

@Monolith and Battlefieldlover
2TB Samsung's (Seagate's) are as hard to find as the PS4.

If you are REALLY hard pressed to upgrade your drive NOW, there is a 1.5TB Western Digital option, BUT it is a "green" drive which isn't known for great longevity and durability.

Personally, I've been eying the 1TB/8GB hybrid Seagate:

If you don't mind stuff hanging out of your PS4 you can extend the SATA connectors out of the PS4 to enable you to use 3.5" desktop drives and get up to 3TB.

yup me too... Acually ive returned like 4 games to a retailer so i strongly advise removing the game data if you no longer own the game ;)
guitarded77  +   462d ago
My hard drive is already suffering. I was hoping to hold out on a swap thinking some higher capacity hard drives would come out, or drop price... I guess I'll have to swap sooner than expected.
sotehpr  +   462d ago
ebay? lol
FamilyGuy  +   462d ago
Lol @ people below complaining on both sides of the fence about the minimum required HDD space.

To the people thinking the game will be small because its "only 24gb" compared to other next gen titles:
Go look at the minimum required installation size for just about any other open world game and realized how wrong you are lol.

To the people complaining about it "taking up too much space": Look at how much space other AAA games are taking up in contrast to this one.

Infamous SS HDD requirement is big for an open world game and is a small amount taken up compared to other PS4/X1 AAA titles.

The ACTUAL, concrete size won't be known till the digital version becomes available on PSN. It might be the same but it could also be different if the devs use some trick on one of the versions to make it smaller.

Either way 24Gbs is not bad at all. Infamous 2 on PS3 is 15Gbs.
madpuppy  +   462d ago
game looks really interesting, with the exception that the Main character looks and comes off, (in the few videos I have seen) like a class A douche. like before his powers emerge his main form of transportation is a skateboard and his drink of choice is a mountain dew...man. blah...
sotehpr  +   462d ago
i believe that's what they wanted to portray... and it seems to me, they have succeeded at that! lol
madpuppy  +   462d ago

I guess so :) But did he have to look like Keanu Reeves :P

I get where they want this character to go, He is going to need to feel true pain and loss. which I guess the story will hash out by either killing off someone he loves (probably his brother) or maybe accidentally killing someone himself.
either way, he really needs to loose that ridiculous beanie, it's as bad as if he always had a tall starbucks soy-latte in his hand or some smug ironic t-shirt with the golden girls on it.

24gig? Not too bad. I like that they showed front and back as well. This game wasn't on my radar. I didn't care for Infamous 2, too much. I picked up the collectors ed. For cheap late. I saw some gameplay a couple of days ago. It looked pretty damn fun. I didn't see if they did but I hope they bring back the electric slide on wires and rails.
MegaRay  +   463d ago
24 is too damn big, but since you can play while downloading I cant complain...
Anyway i am playing infamous 2 right now (finished 1 days ago) and ill buy a PS4 once I finish both good and evil... I cant believe i ignored infamous for the entire generation!
I played the first Uncharted and didnt like it so I was like "no way ill like infamous" but im loving the heck out of it.
And before some naughty guy start attacking me.. I just watch my bro and my cousin playin un 1 2 & 3 I think the story is great but I cant enjoy the gameplay so I cant play it

How it is too dam big? KZ:SF was 50GB(I think?) To install.

This is fine.
1nsomniac  +   463d ago
24gb is small, I'm not sure how they've managed it & I'm actually a little disappointed it's not bigger as it means the assets used could of been better/higher resolution textures.

24 Gb was big for last gen. Fairly small for current gen
Sy_Wolf  +   462d ago
@MegaRay What does Naughty Dog have to do with Infamous? Sucker Punch made Infamous and Uncharted and Infamous are totally different.
jayswolo  +   462d ago
Mass Effect 3 without any DLC was about half of that. Go check what UC3 on PSN is. 40gbs including cutscenes iirc
Zichu  +   463d ago
I would like to get a PS4 for this game, but I just don't have the money to drop for another system... Might have to wait till The Order: 1886 comes out and get Infamous along with it...
TomahawkX  +   463d ago
It's almost here, I can't believe we get such an awesome game this early after launch. Kudos Sony and Sucker Punch!
Bathyj  +   463d ago
Unlike me, this game cant come quick enough.

Can we get one article on Second Son that doesnt have that same screenshot?

Ok, since you were nice about it. I cant stay mad at you. ;)

Meltic  +   462d ago
how can it only be 24 gig ?. Is it repack lol. Something may be wrong here.. killzone was like 30-40 gig and this is better Graphics and an open World game. At least it should be 50 gig
kayoss  +   462d ago
i might be wrong, but it says, "24 GO Minimum". Does that mean 24gb?? if not, what the hell is a 24 GO? I know its not english but i though "GB" is standard across all countries.
Ray J  +   462d ago
Well yes GB is pretty much a standard. But the french, annoyingly, hate everything not french, thus english. GO stands for Giga Octet(exponential of the number 8), which they use for GB. So yes it means minimum 24 GB.
Shakengandulf  +   462d ago
I'm guessing it will increase in size as you play, otherwise.. Thats not too bad.. Not too bad at all.
Meltic  +   462d ago
25 Gb isnt much for a big game like infamous second son. The first or the second game was like 14-15 gb. At least this should be 50 gb big. Killzone was big. Well cross ur fingers and hope this game is big like they told us it will be.
XiSasukeUchiha  +   462d ago
My Sharingan is ready for this!
heisenberguk  +   462d ago
HUH HO!!Seems small! I just hope the campaign length isn't too because I'll be cancelling my £45 pre order and waiting until the price comes way down!! Having no MP is a factor!
D3ATH_DRIV3R_777  +   462d ago
24gb? how can ppl complain about that? i don't see nothing wrong with it being 24gb, so....Uhhh...what's the problem?
Lunarassassin  +   462d ago
For me personally 24gb is far too small for an open world game.
I mean killzone shadowfall was (i think) 48gb and that isn't open world.
They could have used all that extra space for better visuals or loading speed.
Shakengandulf  +   462d ago
Killzone isn't open world in terms of exploration but it has very large sky boxes and an incredibly detailed world.
I'm not surprised that Killzone is 48GB, i'm more surprised that infamous is only 24GB... But i'm guessing infamous wont stay at 24GB's ...
Lunarassassin  +   462d ago
I hope it doesn't stay at 24gb. I just think it's too small for an open world game.
diehardmetallicafan  +   462d ago
Maybe its 24gig install and the rest is on the disc?..
S2Killinit  +   462d ago
its about to start
kx11  +   462d ago
the install size won't matter , what matters is the install time , no one want to wait 15 minutes to install 24gb

installing Ryse on X1 HDD took 5 hrs for me :(
Shakengandulf  +   462d ago
Cant say I've had any issues with long install times, even killzone's large install didn't take very long... In fact, i think most have been less than 5minutes to install.

Since infamous is a open world game, could you play this while installing.... ?
razrye  +   462d ago
One major advantage that the ps4 has is the ability to let you play after only 5-10% has been installed.
WeedyOne  +   462d ago
Well usually open work games have parts of the world restricted till you progress in level or reach the part of the story that unlocks the closed off portion of the world.
WeedyOne  +   462d ago
"installing Ryse on X1 HDD took 5 hrs for me :("

That's the difference between XboxOne and PS4!

Ryse 34.94GB = 5 hour install

Killzone SF 45GB = was playing the game 3 minutes after putting the disk in PS4!

that's a decent size imo, I watched gameplay where he fights a heavy in the end finishing off with a karma bomb

man it looked incredible the way his body joined back up again

I've not seen any game like this on a P.C.
Pug  +   462d ago
Nice cover, this new guy seems to have a bit of Dante about him from what I've seen so far. Looking forward to this and how it ties in with the previous 2 games.

a little tip ive found if your seeing your hd fill up. check the folder with the captures in it. i didnt realize it was automatically saving videos and screenshots and it racked up about 37 gigs since december

Not that it's a big deal, but I don't like this artwork.

Cover from October. I get the back is now shown but never considered it as the cover. When video game covers get revealed usually the front is what's shown only.

These install sizes are absurd. 500GB drives are totally inadequate. I guarantee upgraded versions of the Xbox One and PS4 with much larger drives, probably as early as E3.

Early adopters get screwed again.
