SWEET! hope to hear more on Infamous.
Infamous looks very promising.Hopefuly the can give us more info on the game.And since killzone2 is only weeks away from getting relased i hope they show us something mind blowing.As for resistance i did not really like resistance2 so i dont care about the psp version.
I'm not sure if I'll want to get Infamous. I mean, haven't we had enough free-running games lately? Assassin's Creed Uncharted (well Uncharted 2 will have free-running anyway) Mirror's Edge Prince of Persia Prototype They seem to be obsessed with it at the moment. Hopefully it's just a craze. It always looks odd; and I know the guy's a superhero but in other games (PoP I'm looking at you) it makes no sense. The electric superpowers I AM interested in, though. It's like a licensed superhero game, except it's actually by a talented dev studio and isn't being rushed out to tie in with the movie release. If there's enough variety in the powers he has, it could be very interesting. Also, if their morality system actually works and isn't a typically lame (we've seen it before) "if you kill X number of people the people hate you, otherwise they love you" kind of system, it will prove an interesting gameplay mechanic and could make the game quite fun to play, knowing that your actions have consequences.
@thor, I really wouldn't call InFamous a "Free-Running" game, it's an Open World game. In Infamous, you can make decisions to do good or be evil and the choices you make will impact the rest of the game. A little info on Infamous taken from an article: "As the player completes the main goals, side opportunities to help the citizens of Empire City will be presented; an example given by Game Informer includes a scenario where, on the way to defuse a bomb, the player is presented with a heavily injured woman that needs medical treatment; the option whether to stop and save her or to continue on will influence the development of Cole. This is tracked through a karma system which influences the growth of Cole's powers, some being enhanced by good deeds, while ignoring the pleas of the citizens will favor the growth of other powers. The karma system will also affect how the citizens react to Cole; if the player has helped citizens, they may come to Cole's help in certain battles, while in the contrary position, the citizens may flee as Cole approaches. However, the player is able to alter their karma and pursue the alternate direction should they want to" Sucker Punch has always developed quality games, and I have faith in them. To me InFamous looks like tons of fun, and looks like it will have plenty of replayability and it will most likely be a first day purchase for me as well as Killzone 2.
you know why? Cuz I will be getting Infamous when it drops! Don't play yourself. SuckerPunch knows how to make great games. Greg Miller already gave it major respect on his preview. And yeah, I like to own the AAA in house games. Next purchases: Killzone (already pre-ordered) Street Fighter 4 (collectors edition) InFamous Resident Evil 5 (this one is sort of a maybe)
Damn, forgot to put the positive stuff first, I forgot people only read the first half of your post and then get bored. I mentioned their morality or karma system or whatever it's called. I'm skeptical as to whether it will actually be more than we've seen in other games, but I hope it can be. The fact that it's a superhero game that isn't a licence or movie tie-in is exciting, because nearly all of them are and that means they're not as good as they could be. I was only having a rant about how now it's cool to make a free-running game and what might have sounded like a cool idea that sets their game apart from the crowd now seems like an overused mechanic that makes it blend in.
Tech that went into developing the games? Idk, but maybe they should do that thing with GT5 where they used 4 pS3s to display 4 X 1080p resolution
my second and 3rd mos anticipated game this year. Yes.
Its Infamous VS Prototype even before release date? Incredible!
nice nice nice
Heh, a little more than Microsoft, eh? But then again this is a hardware and tech show, and that is what I will be watching it for. But outside of some great gadgets and such, I will definitely be watching for Infamous. I'm really excited to see how it turns out.
Stop it Sony i already burned out my ps3 no more great games
Infamous will score less then an 8 Killzone wont sell or move PS3's And ..... A psp game? Oh noes MS is in twubble
DAMAGE CONTROL!!! QUICK SOME SAD LITTLE **** KEYBOARD NOW!!!
Meanwhile Microsoft are showing Halo Wars and Halo DLC-on-a-Disc. Neither of which will move consoles or score well.
LOL and the wheels on the Microsoft butt bus keeps spinning.
-less than 9 'metascore' from rabid xbots afraid of a good game on the console they cannot afford. -sales != score [evidence? LBP, R2]. -going by you and yours' "rhetoric," the PSP has outsold the xb360 worldwide, so it MUST be better. Quit playing 9GB games that hinder the advancement of the industry and play 50GB games and let the industry grow technologically. Why would you support a console that is hindering the industry with cheap and old tech (RRoD, DVD's, no motion sensing, respectively)?
probably playing their torrented games 1 week before it is out on the market. Just think, the legal games are region-locked (last-gen optical drive limitations), while the games that is in the torrent sites are not region-locked or the DVD drive in the last-gen console are already modded.
i cant wait to learn more about Killzone 2 and inFamous.... both are hopefully day one purchases for me... :)
If im not mistaken wasnt Sony suppose to announce at CES that they are going to officially discontinue the PS3? thats what the 360 fanboys have been telling me and mamma always said teh 360 fanboyz are always right.. even if they are wrong On topic, this should own! glad to see sony making the right marketing decisions, this makes MS CES look like a snoozefest. lmao Halo wars and Halo ODST, even Nintendo arent stupid enough to announce 2 biggest games of the year from the same franchise.. Nintendo wouldnt even announce 2 mario games as their main headline games for one year.
I've seen your comments complaining about 360 trolls and now here you are calling 360 fanboys out. I think you like it because you seem to be trying to stir it up.
And it seems like he's nabbed a pretty big 360 troll!!! oh oh....its a giant enemy crab! Good catch, good catch.
on a serious note, im glad to see sony is really listening to their fanbase. I remember a couple years ago all sony would brag about was the tech specs of the PS3 and they would hardly mention any games. It would always be blu ray this or cell processor that but since the PS3 fans complained that they need to focus more on games, thats EXACTLY what they are doing and i love it! Even when david reeves was interviewed the other day and he was asked what will make the PS3 so good in 09.. He didnt even mention blu ray or any of the technical mumbo jumbo. He talked strictly games by mentioning killzone 2, Infamous,Heavy rain and eyepet. Im very glad to see sony has learned from their mistakes and even at a show dedicated to technology sony is still showcasing great exclusives coming out this year as their main event instead of touting blu ray and cell
Its a dirty job.. but someones gotta do it
No please no Killzone 2, I won't be able to resist myself from watching it :( But Infamous, Resistance Retributions are most welcome :P
Great marketing strategy by Sony. Now! lets see what Microsoft is bringing to the table.....anyone?
Bang bang! Knock em' dead Sony. xD
I look foward to seeing how KZ2 looks now and Infamous. Infamous is shaping up nicely.
Sounds awesome cant wait
I'm looking forward to infamous.
