is really looking like it will be great, since we know it is getting "blockbuster marketing budget" from Sony, they must also think its going to be a big hit. It has (from what we have seen) great graphics, great story and great gameplay and we havent even been shown much of the game.
The person that's playing sucks so much.
Infamous will be marketed as a super hero's game.
Man, it would really be great if this and GOWIII came out in back to back months. I really wish we'd been given more info on the release of GOWIII at E3! Assuming it makes it in 2009, the PS3 is poised to have another killer year in 09.
another killer quality game for the ps3??? why am i not surprised... their is soo many quality titles coming out for the ps3 i almost forgot about this game. this game looks pretty crazy.
I like the look of the game so far. I mean having powers like that is just kick ass.
As the Emperor says: POWER! UNLIMITED POWER!!!!!!!
After seeing this at E3 it shot past Killzone 2 as my most anticipated PS3 game.
The game does look great i wasn't hyped for it before but i might have changed my mind and will definitely consider buying it based on user reviews(not website reviews).
this has a crap load of particles. thats more particles than any game in existence. look how many sparks bounce around. there's hundreds of them on screen at once.
Yeah the more I see it the more I want it.
The graphics look amazing. The only area it would need improving would be the textures on the cars, however, all in all, it looks very nice. I even think it is going to (maybe) surpass the graphics in GTA IV. The climbing animations are great as well. Did you see him jump off the train and onto the slanted stair railing? Whoa! The only things that need to be tweaked are only three things: 1) Bits of the camera (such as when it collides with objects and when the camera is trying to go into a wall). 2) Aiming. 3) Ragdolls and animations for the civilians. The ones for the main character are superb though.
I highly doubt that GTA is going to be very difficult to surpass graphically. Sony Studios know their system better than anybody else ( I would atleast hope ) so I don't think there's any doubt of it looking better. The lighting is showing off the sony flare allready. They really have got lighting cracked down in their games. Looks like the kind of open world game I've been waiting for.
I've already seen more going on screen, with less frame stuttering than GTA4. I just want to see how far a sandbox ps3 game can go.
and its 720p (not 630p or whatever like gta4)
i hope cole gets more powers throughout the game then just electricity, fire comes to mind
i remember watching an interview and they said electricity is his only power, but that they will be using it in loads of ways, from what i have seen they have alot of things they can do with it, not to mention the climbing everywhere and bombing on cars lol.
A Raiden (MK) outfit would be a sweet bonus costume. Or one of them dudes from big trouble in little china.
still needs a bit of work with the cam and ai and polishing i see this game been fun
Gime more of this man it was awesome!
The game is still in alpha and still 10 months away. It will be smoking by the time it ships.
I don't know, it doesn't have me hooked yet. It does look amazing, but something about it is just unappealing to me and I don't know what it is.
is it that the electricity powers seem kind of unsatisfying? don't get me wrong, i'm a sucker punch fan, but i'm having trouble getting excited for this game. i doubt they'd do it, but i wish they'd just let you use guns. also the enemies ("reapers") are kind of cheesy. but i bet they can pull it off :P
Dylan's "Stage 1," electricity powers, and they'll eventually take the wraps off of his higher level abilities. i loved the Sly Cooper games, so i have high hopes for this one. it's looking damn good, and the only negative thing i can say about it is that it slipped from it's 2008 release to 2009, but that just means more polishing and tweaking (and adding trophies, i'm sure). an inFamous HOME space would probably be really cool. they should let you use your avatar instead of Coles after you beat the story mode in the game. then it can be you roaming around Empire City (? i think that's the name), with electricity bits. or even better, they should let you choose to use some of the various enemies and "super-villain's" powers as bonus extras after the main campaign is done. considering that it was implied that the game has multi-player, it wouldn't surprise me if the breadth of abilities is beyond simply electricity.
Poindat... is it maybe that he is zapping thugs (all looking like clones of each other... why?) with electricity and they shrug it off? And that the whole atmosphere seems anticlimatic even though guys are randomely shooting when you show up and cars are being tossed by you? Just seems like when you watch this it is like " la di da di da... hhhmmmm what seems to be going on here? Guys having issues with each other... let me move on. la di da di da..) Where is the emersive music, screams of bedestrians? The NOISE of it all? The game has potential but I rate it right around Assasin's Creed level currently. And that is not necessarily a bad thing. Just needs some work. Also, with electricity comes magnetic potential, wasn't sure if that was what I was seeing with the cars or was it just explosions without explosion sounds? Maybe harnessing it as a defensive shield ricochette bullets from him could be interesting? I see he was helping a random heart attack victim by giving a quick blot to her chest. Seems kind of funny if that is going to be a routine thing of pedestrians having heart attacks through out the city. lol
looks really good cant wait....and Bombibomb is right that guy playing does suck lol
This game looks so damn good.
Agreed. Informant, Kim.
that game looks really good although the amiming need a little tweaking
We here at Sony are proud to have Suckerpunch as partners. You may know them from the renowned platform game: Sly Cooper. We here at Sony can insure a blockbuster title down the pipeline from blockbuster developers, similar to offerings our other partners such as Naughty Dog and Insomniac have in the works; something our rivals can't offer. *cough* Rare *cough* *cough* RARE! -Sony Rep...
When Sony announced the game awhile ago at E3, I knew back then that it was going to be awesome. Now? I still have the same opinion, but I'm trying to keep my expectations low until next year when more information is unveiled.
Game looks awesome.. but whoever was at the controls had me gritting me teeth in frustration with the fact that he couldn't hit a damn thing. "Hey! I've got a great idea.. let's release a gameplay video.. but I'll play with my toes! YEA!" lol
It seems like most people who do these demonstrations suck at playing the game. Which is a shame because they put a bad light on the game. Personally, I'm excited for this game. Just being able to scale anything and everything effortlessly like that seems incredible. Plus with Karma affecting your powers you can play through the game so many ways. Play through once as a good guy, the next you just destroy everything and kill civilians.
MK's Raiden + GTA + Assassin's Creed = WIN! Can't wait for the aweSOMENESS of the inFAMOUS!
looks pretty good, and fun.
I love anything where I can perform jumps and parkour moves like that, Uncharted, Assassin's Creed and so on, so this will be a nice addition to the PS3s library, as a Crackdown sequel would be welcome to the 360s.
the guy looks like he had trouble playing, *not saying I could pick up the controller and do any better right off the bat* but I liked the effects, LOVED the music, kind of an urban adrenilin vibe, great stuff. cant wait! and were those guys in red growling?
i want it.... is there an official release date
just Quarter 1/Quarter 2 2009. so expect it anytime between January, 2009-August 2009.
i agree with all people who says this game has 10 months and will be smoking i bet the gta team wish they was exclusive to ps3 i cant wait to see the full build and then the GTA team will say GTA 5 exclusive to ps3 CHACH CHING
Don't Taze Me Bro! I love the speed and natural flow of the main character, I'm curious to know what other special abilities it can offer or pick up from dead bosses.
Ah, now this is a game that should push some hardware if it's marketed right. Sony better do a good job for with their "multimillion dollar blockbuster" marketing campaign. They should market the hell out of this like they did with the Spider-Man franchise and please people don't reply that this game will be a disappointment like Spider-Man 3. Infamous looks like it has the potential to be an early GOTY contender for 09. Sorry Killzone 2 you maybe the best looking game in 09 but Infamous has me more excited though I'll still buy KZ2. Just like 07 and 08 was 09 looks to be another great year for games.
game looks awesome looking forward to this one. like someone said earlyer hes only at beginner level with his powers but those guys in red sure did take some beating.
shock grenades, lightning laser shots from the hand, electro-kenesis, magnetism control. channeling electricity from other conductors to do explosions, locking enemies to floors and walls to beat the snot out of them with electric shackles... and thats all just part of level one.. dylan cole will be one iconic hero... i cant wait. it looks fun... especially after sucker punch revealed that they are using the kz2 engine for there lighting and paricle effect, and for animation as well. i simply cant wait. this game will look amazing come spring next year. awesomeness.. by the way did anyone notice dylan's animation... looks like assassin's creed and uncharted.... i cant wait to own this. bring on sony's blockbuster year
me can't wait!
The preview of this game rocks! Now the big question is: Who will win in a deathmatch, the Secret Apprentice from Star Wars: Unleashed or this guy from Infamous?
Looks like fun, only thing: the aiming system doesn't seem to work really fine. And it gets a bit repetitive although the physics are fun blowing away the cars etc.
I might actually agree with one of your comments for once, your criticisms are actually quite reasonable however: YOU JUST SAID A PS3 EXCLUSIVE LOOKS FUN! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH AHA!!! The Mart/POG just said something positive about a PS3 game, he must now hang himself out of shame for his blasphemy against his Xbox! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH AHAHA!!!
Seems like so much fun throwing cars around like that. I just want it now. If there were 5 games I wanted in my hand now they would be: LittleBIGplanet Infamous Motorstorm 2 Resistance 2 Heavy Rainesss
