High Quality inFAMOUS: Second Son Gameplay Screenshots Appear; Show Lovely Graphics and No Spoilers

The lastest inFAMOUS: Second Son screenshots leaked from various streams were quite spectacular, but they were also rather low in quality and definitely spoiler-ish. Luckily not all of them are like that, and today there are a few more, grabbed directly from the console (and as such showing much better graphics) and free of any spoilers. (inFamous: Second Son, PS4)

Update Added four more screenies :D

Update 2: and 4 more.

JPEGS suck, but those shots are still nice.
Abriael  +   441d ago
Wish they were PNGs, but the JPG compression is very low on these :D
MaxwellBuddha  +   441d ago
The first shot looks the best to me, quality-wise, but that last one is just rife with artifacts.
Abriael  +   441d ago
Funny, because it's the one with the lowest compression. 616k

Much better than livestream screencaps, anyway.

LOL @ the claims of downgraded visuals. This game looks so good. Longest 6 days of my life.

@ Gribble

Oh Sweet Sweet satisfaction...Downgrade my BUTT.

I love knowing that now when I read those trolls they are crying behind their words. Wish I could savor this moment...Oh wait I can! comment history!!!

Not the best quality gif but still looks fantastic:

webeblazing  +   440d ago
the gfx in this game is crazy.
skept3k  +   440d ago
With all that talk of the changes from E3, those screenshots look amazing! The only problem I have is I got Dark Souls 2, Metal Gear Solid Ground Zero, Diablo 3 RoS, Titanfall and InFamouos!

March is just loaded with great games!

Just look at this beauty:

I was out and about last night a saw a bright neon sign, and all I could think of was inFamous.
mafiahajeri  +   441d ago
Wow, so atmospheric so beautiful...
EXVirtual  +   441d ago
My god, that looks awesome.
All of that at native 1080p. And this is just the beginning of this gen.

Yep, previous shot of the same scene without delsin

Conzul  +   441d ago
Um...Sure looks like he's casting a shadow to me.
Unless that counts as a reflection.
kenshiro100  +   441d ago
Holy crap this game is a beauty. I really want a PS4 now.
BG11579  +   441d ago
It's this kind of graphics people were expecting in Watchdogs.
I've seen these pictures before, but still get amazed each time I see them. Amazing, day one.

Such a long week...
hulk_bash1987  +   441d ago
Yup I remember when we saw the announcement trailer. The pain of waiting was killer and now that it's only a week away that pain has not gotten any better, lol.
EXVirtual  +   441d ago
This looks amazing. Especially for an open world game.
I wonder what other powers you have access to.

I do find it funny how people jump to conclusions. In this case, people thought that inFamous: SS was downgraded by comparing screens from a compressed YT video to direct feed from E3 (not adressing the author btw).

On a side note, I see shadows, pretty good ones at that.

holy ...

i dont think it looks to short from amazing compared to the order, and that was amazing..

i thought it look good, not this good
EXVirtual  +   441d ago
It'll look even better on your 1080p TV.
Don't forget this is just the beginning of the gen, so I look forward to this game and the future.
webeblazing  +   440d ago
i think infamous looks better than the order
Bathyj  +   441d ago
I love the difference in the shadows in the second and third pics. One is dark and sharp from a bright spotlight, the other is stretched and soft from the setting Sun. Why would anyone be worried about visuals on this game. It's setting the bar rather high. Probably to an unattainable level for years to come for openworld games.
amnalehu  +   441d ago
Are those shadows i see?
Abriael  +   441d ago
Nah. They're ashes left behind by those Delsin disintegrated.

CrossingEden  +   441d ago
Only certain light sources create shadows.
I'll tell ya, I wasn't planning on buying this until a price drop but all these new screenshots have changed my mind. Day one it is.
RDF  +   441d ago
This game just looks plain sexy,but im worried about how they will rate this one. If the reason TF got all those 9/10s is for just the "fun factor",how would SS be judged? Remember most of the sites that gave TF a perfect or near perfect scores said story,graphics,resolution and frame rate dont matter. Yet SS has all those and more. I fear its going to be nit-picked to the 7.5 and 8 area. It will be interesting to see how they will justify their scores on SS.
Ezz2013  +   441d ago
"story,graphics,resolutio n and frame rate dont matter."

gaming media in a nutshell
mkis007  +   441d ago
I really hope they rate it by how fun and engaging the story and powers are. Don't expect much tbh, doesnt matter buying anyway.
DigitalRaptor  +   441d ago
I'm with you there buddy. And I'm expecting it. It's disgusting that I have to anticipate these kind of double standards from the gaming media who are meant to provide objectivity and professionalism above all else.

Let's hope Second Son gets the praise it rightly deserves.
leemo19  +   440d ago
Unfortunately it's going to get nip-pick it's what the media likes to do when a great game like this comes out and outshines another game that they hype up and like.

Statix  +   441d ago
The quality of the anti-aliasing is fantastic. Probably not using 4xMSAA, but I wonder if they're using SMAA, or something similar to that.

BlakHavoc  +   441d ago
Wow, my interest in this game has skyrocketed since the reveal. I just remember trying to play the first 2 Infamous's like a year ago and just couldn't get into them. But SS truly looks amazing and like a way to get introduced to the franchise without having to play the first 2, it's a day one buy for me.
CaptainPunch  +   441d ago
Looks great, but how many of these articles do we need. Honestly just looking for easy hits, smh.
theXtReMe1  +   441d ago
the fourth screen shot answered one of my biggest questions, would there be rain during the day. thank you for posting them. I can't wait to play this game.

The game just doesnt look good looks more like a PS3 title.I thought the PS4 was powerful?
Even your profile picture is shocked at that statement.
razrye  +   441d ago
If this game was on the xbox imagine how bad it would look. Keep trying troll. Just makes you look even more butthurt.
Nine_Thousaaandd  +   441d ago
It's really cool seeing the excitement around InFAMOUS...PS fans are at their best when they have games like InFAMOUS, The Last of US, and Uncharted. The pics above that fans are sharing, AMAZING...this will be the introduction into next gen gaming on console. Again, special thanks to Sucker Punch for giving us such a wonderful game to play, and only on Playstation.

This game, and many more to come will justify the investment we've put into PS4...console is alive and well, and I believe that Sony will deliver on PS4, over and over again. And special thanks to Sony as well, the PS4 is awesome! Preordered and waiting to download...can't wait!
thehitman1398  +   441d ago
This game is reminding me of being a little kid wanting to get Mario 3, or when I waited in line yo get Oracleof time at best buy of all places (yes I got the gold end.) And this also brings up great memories of me putting MGS in the PlayStation for the first time and played the game for like over 5 hours nonstop. I have a feeling that this game is gonna be the nail in the coffin for the xbone. Once the hype for titanfail goes away like hype for all games do, and the repetitiveness of killing lame just awful bots goes away they will be life with an empty feeling knowing that they wasted $60 on an overhyped game. While we have potentially a Game of the Year to play :-)
theXtReMe1  +   441d ago

This pic is just insane. I cant believe we are playing games that look like this and this is just the beginning of this gen. I truly never thought I would see realtime visuals like this. In 1983, I was quite sure that Dragons Lair was going to be as good as it ever got. :) I love you Suckerpunch.

Absolutely fantastic looking game, pre ordered and can't wait to pick it up.

If a open world game looks this amazing, how will the next game from Naughty Dog, Santa Monica and Quantic Dream be?

Truly excited to see future PS4 titles. Few more days for InFamous.
Hakoom  +   441d ago
This is what i call HD screens
it realy shows the quality of the game
last time the comparison screens sucked and made the game looked bad
infamous looks epic !
mad-dog  +   441d ago
I didn't expect it to look this clean.. amazing.

It's pretty funny how some people on SOME sites still judge Watchdogs on one gif. Don't worry people. WD will also have rain, neonlights and nighttime and it will also look good. Very different games though. And one is exclusive, and the other crossplatform and crossgen.

And guess what? You can play them both.

Can't wait to get my hands on Infamous SS.
rmedtx  +   441d ago
Very impressive graphics!!!
Holeran  +   440d ago
The draw distance is what turns me on in these new screens, when he is looking over the city. These would never look even close on last gen systems. Quite beautiful.
leemo19  +   440d ago
Talk about looking next-gen for sure, clearly the best looking game now.
