"This superhero-focused PS3 exclusive may just deliver a surprise shock to Sony's console system. Crispy's writers muse on the chances.
Evan Narcisse: The thing that struck me most about Infamous, when I saw it behind closed doors at E3 2008, was that it was a marked departure from Sucker Punch's previous work on the Sly Cooper franchise. They started with the idea that lots of superhero games suck because a character's powers aren't created with gameplay as the first priority. (Hell, Superman's never translated well to videogames when you think about it...) I already know we're getting electricity powers and acrobatics in Infamous, but I'm curious to see if we'll be getting a hybrid of Sly Cooper's charm and a more mature, melodramatic sensibility from this game as well. I'll be seeing some more of it when Sony brings the game to NYC next week, so I might have a chance to update those impressions."
