Once I saw inFamous in action it was an instant buy for me.

After seeing the E3 footage and G4 hands on its a day one buy for me. The climbing element looked amazing. Sort of a combo of Crackdown and Assassins Creed. Using the edge of the building for cover looked awesome!

This and LBP are the PS3 games exclusives I'm looking forward to the most. Both games need and deserve a massive marketing campaign.

THERE GONNA MASSIVELY ADVERTISE THIS, BUT
THE CANT EVEN ADVERTISE MGS4
WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THIS IS BULLSH*T I CANT BELEIVE THEY WOULD DO THAT FOR INFAMOUS EVEN THOUGH IT LOOKS AWSOME.
BUT MGS4 IS PS3'S KING TITLE AND THEY BARLEY ADVERISED IT.
ALONG WITH ANY OTHER GAME!!!!!!!!11

Infamous totally rapes Prototype and than eats it's children.

deeznuts3680d ago

Bosh, as pointed out, MGS4 is not 1st party, so Sony would help, but the onus is on Konami.

Oh, and I love MGS4, but it's not mainstream, no matter how you slice it. infamous has the potential for broader appeal possibly. Give sony some credit, they kinda know what they're doing. Look at how they turned the PSP around and how they're turning the PS3 around.

uie4rhig3680d ago

They should do this, but not only for this game, but for all the exclusives, even if it isn't 1st party..

Judging from the E3 videos, there is a lot of sense in doing this.

wetowel3680d ago

there arent very many games out there like this so on sony's part advertising this title like there is no tomorrow seems like the right thing to do.

Silogon3680d ago

Garbage. Sony couldn't put this into MGS4, Resistance, Ratchat & Clank or Lair, yet they do it for this pile of junk bunk crap! What a joke. It shows where Sony's heads at, right up their a$$

absoltuely uncalled for. This game needs to be scraped and the funds need to be ported over to another project. A project that isn't trying to be something else.

Sony should put those "multi millions" into making a couple RPGS. Might help expand their market beyond the twit twitch shooter dorks.

Overr8ed3680d ago

you do know the Sony Supported MGS4. Resistance (but M$ did flood with Gears of War ads) and Ratchet

NegativeCreep4273680d ago

This game is looking totally AAA. Sony clearly doesn't have anything up their a$$es, but I do find it funny how you so openly notice the symptoms in others. Could it be because you love having things up you're a$$ all the time...

Dark General3680d ago

Sony will heed your comments and scrap this game right away despite everything about it they've seen and know about it behind closed doors. It's obvious you just want a new Sly Cooper game.

juuken3680d ago (Edited 3680d ago )

ALL ABOOOOOOOOOOOOOOARD THE FAIL TRAIN!
Silogon...when have you ever, and I mean EVER give credit where it's due for the PS3? Have you played the game? No. Have you smelled the game? No. Have you touched the damn case? No. Have you beta tested the game? No. Go on, disagree with the multiple accounts you have. You are a despicable waste of air here.

You wanna talk about heads up the ass? How about asking Microsoft where they put their heads every time they're sprouting insults concerning the Playstation brand?
