While I like to think of myself as a hardened game journalist, the idea of an open-ended super hero game turns me into an irrational fanboy. The combination of an open game environment, where you can do anything, and a super hero main character, who really CAN do anything, seems like it could result in a remarkable game. When I saw Crackdown, I thought, "Wow, I need an Xbox 360." In much the same way, I think people will look at inFamous and say, 'Wow, I need a PS3.'"
