Sony just announced that inFAMOUS will not ship in June as previously expected, but rather now on May 26th in the US!
EVEN BETTER!!!! Smart move to get out before Prototype.
I just hope its not being kicked out the door to soon. I want a polished, interesting and beautiful game. Than again its Sucker Punch, they really put in a lot of hard work and love into their games. They said that this game has been over 3 years in the making. I imagine those 3 years have been well spent.
This is great news. It's rather refreshing, seeing as how most game's release dates are postponed rather then being set earlier.
Hardly 'being kicked out the door too soon'
Oh, hell yeah, baby!! Excellent news! This is the next game I'm going to buy. Haven't bought anything since Killzone 2.
I thought it was getting delayed for a second there. Day one!
if infamous and prototype launched at the same time neither of them would get the respect they deserve. its better this way
but i wanted Cross Edge in May :( this will be tough choice
@erathaol - Has that EVER happened with Sony? They never move a game up for release, unless that game is ready.
I can't remember the last time Sony moved a game up. This is almost weird. F*ck it. The sooner, the better!
IGN: "inFAMOUS is f'n awesome!" IGN AU: "inFAMOUS is awesome. Period. End of Statement." :)
Great move. Own your launch day. Do not share it with a game that is multiplatform and will probably get more advertising. Once the reviews drop I may pick up InFamous. I'm waiting on reviews because A) the game is a new IP and I usually survey the field before B) dropping 65 bucks on a game that is, again, a new IP. Bubbles for all on page one that are psyched about this news.
...this is totally so they get in before Batman and Prototype etc...man best news for me all day! :)
This was very smart move. Sucker Punch is not releasing this game too soon. They followed one of the most important rules of customer service: Under-promise, but over-deliver! They exaggerated their release date, which allowed their competitor to show their hand. Prototype attempted to c*ckblock by releasing 3 days ealier. Now inFamous has the last laugh by releasing 2 weeks before Prototype. I'm very excited for this game and will definitely be purchasing it.
I wasn't expecting to play the game of the Year in May! awesome. If you want to wait for the reviews I have them already! Every Media outlet except Edge and Kotaku: "Game of the Year." Edge and Kotaku: "We suck balls so who cares." "Our 10 year old staff of writers could not comprehend the awesomeness of this game so we give it an 8.0, one point below FIFTY CENT: Blood Da Sand"
"I just hope its not being kicked out the door to soon" They wouldn't release a game if it wasn't 100% ready.
Wow, I was not expecting this. This is really great news. :)
Now is the time to stand down. Sony has done something they've NEVER done before. Its serious business. Sony isn't joking around anymore. We thought Sony showed all their cards, but we have no frickin' clue what they got left in store for us! O_O
This is more or less an E3 move meaning that they do not have to show this game anymore and can free up space in the press conference and show that they have had 2 AAA titles already this year.
Thats great its all looking gd till now, cant wait, according to psu the demo will be out on the 21st of may so thats gd
looks like prototype was just made infamous!
it sounds like you thought that up a long time ago and have been waiting for an opportunity to use it... unfortunately it doesnt quite work in this context lol.
or maybe Infamous is just a prototype. Ok, I admit it was just as bad :(
nice play on words. Sweet, May and June are going to be good months, just like February-March!
Or "Prototype just got Sucker Punched!" =P
I hope the release date change had nothing to do with infamous. Sony have moved up release date of uncharted and ratchet and clank and they both were great games. Hope same can be said for infamous. It shall be a day one purchase for me
The release date is for inFAMOUS so it has at least something to do with inFAMOUS.
@sonarus hahahahah, very funny man :D. I guess you were talking about Prototype and Infamous. This news made my day. Getting Infamous day one. I need a good open world game, and Infamous is that game. GTA4 is getting boring, playing it only for the story.
lol yea i meant prototype. But seriously i can't wait to play this game. I wish there was more time between infamous and prototype cus i have to play them both. I hope prototype gets a demo soon
for another game at the end of the year either way im pleased. I was getting pissed with the lack of games;)
I think you're more in the right area than those feeling they're avoiding the Prototype clash. Releasing pre E3 frees up both release dates and possoble exposure for other games . I really don't think sony are done rolling out titles this year-too many in house studios that have been quiet for long enough to be very near to the end of their dev cycles. there's all those "secret" games that journos have been NDs'd over. Games like Wardevil that have gone quiet despite still recruiting staff for the past two years etc, etc. Where are the mooted 5 jrpgs in house from Sony? With MS bound to have something huge under wraps(whatever anyone has you thinking)and Nintendo needing a big game announcement more than ever before(I still feel we'll see a Wii Zelda this year)I think the period from the start of E3 to the end of TGS with games releasing all the while too, could be the most interesting yet for gamers this gen or any other.
improbable but I'd like that and it would sell sh!tloads near xmas so that would be good for sony. For me it would be a great end to the year. If it is indeed true that R+C and Drakes 2 have been pushed forward then sony must have something planed.
First InFanoua is pushed forward and now you're telling me Uncharted has been too. This is the best day ever! Do you have links to the pushed forward Uncharted?
Same date UK please! Nice move Sony, that'll steal the limelight from Prototype for a bit.
will probably get a later release date imo
Oh well. Thank God Blu-Ray are multiregion, once another reason for loving the PS3 system.
If we don't get a similar early UK release, I may be importing a copy myself!
SCEE will prolly find some loophole that legally stops the simulaneous release over here. They'll enforce an import ban by suspending the PSN accounts of any EU gamers rumoured to have even been on Ebay/amazon/any online sales point at all/or have visited stateside recently! You do realise they hate their customers at SCEE don't you? If most of them live near where I do I understand the bitterness, mind,. and it's the only explanation for the emptiness of our PSN/Home and the lack of any vid service this side of the pond plus the release date joke that keeps on giving.SCEE are cack, really cack.
^ That was just a good waste of my time reading that dribble.
WOW* Now, that's a surprise... Making my pre-order now @ Amazon and stealing (i mean taking without pre-order it) the voucher from my... ahh, never mind lol XD
The sooner the better.
YES! FREAKING YES! AWESOME NEWS!
hell yeah thats awesome! may was looking kind of dry anyway although the xmen game looks good im not 100% sold yet..great news this made my day!
Holy Fu_ck!!! hopefully this game will be great, can't wait to try the demo...
History is repeating it's self again, but you guys have your heads so deep into Sony @ss to see it. Does SOCOM ring a bell? Sony's just about to release an unfinished game (just for the sake of making more money; all they care about is your wallet) for the second time the gen and you guys are okay with it. I'll wait for the game to hit the bargain (with all the patches and DLCs...) bin before I purchase it. I'm not falling for this twice.
Fox, give it a rest. This game has been finished for a while and has been getting nothing but polish. The game is ready to go... dont doubt Sucker Punch!
@ Fox01 : Ahhhh the irony, you mean like GeoW 2 patches ? you mean like how M$ is ripping your money to play online on P2P servers, DLCs, Themes, HDD...etc ? How would you know that ?
Do you mean the same way how M$ released an unfinished console that breaks just to make more money and yet you xbots are fine with it?
the corrupted save files and the glitches in flopple err I mean fable 2. Or the unplayable multi player mode in glitches of war 2.
That's why I didn't buy Gear 2. there's no way I'm paying for a broken game. I didn't buy Street Fighter IV, RE5 either. But I bought Killzone 2 Left4dead, CoD 5... @rucky I've always said this from the beginning. the X360 is a giant turd (so is the PS3 and the the Wii) but in order to play Fable I, II, Left4Dead, Dead of Alive, Ninja Gaiden Black and II... I need to get that system. Besides it's has Xbox Live. With all these, I don't care if it brakes. as far as Microsoft keeps repairing them for free I'm ok. I also have a PS3 for MGS 4, Uncharted, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Tekken 5 DR... And on the Wii I have Mario Galaxy, Mario football, Zelda and other Gamecube games. So you can say all you want, but in the end all I care about is games and (Xbox live). @Labwarriorbot Yeah, I can't believe I paid 70€ for that game. I was really dissapointed; but that's because I had so high expectations for it.
Guys...Everybody knows Infamous' release date and Socom go hand in hand. Nevermind Sony has just removed any threat Prototype may have brought to the table. Nevermind it's Sucker Punch. Nevermind the acclaim from PREVIEWS it has generated. It's going to be...*snicker*...unfinished. Hahahaha. *wipes eye* That was good Fox. Hahahaha.
Put it this way. After 3 years of development. Infamous is already complete for release. Remember that SK have spent all their time this gen sofar in developing this title unlike IG and ND that have already released 3 and 1 games already. In other words. Infamous is long overdue and its going to be freaking amazing.
wow lack of games i don't believe so theres still a ton of games i want to get and play. street fighter 4,resident evil 5,little big planet,fear 2,
may 26th it is !!!, im getting it day 1 too bad best buy dont have any kool pre order goodness
Awefreakingsome. To bad I'll be on vacation for the rest of May, may have to come back earlier to play some before heading back to work. haha.
game looks nothing like prototype...prototype is much more dark and much more gore and blood..
Make that date european also!
Or a few days earlier like the way Prototype is being released.
Oh my God please no more release im already dead broke from buying Killzone 2, RE4 and SF4 this month!!! How much is my extra kidney worth?
my source was half right then, he did mention the game was pretty much finished, but got the date mixed up. but i guess even plans no matter how well cordinated they may seem, can always change. so may? even better, that simply means another exclusive to buy right after killzone 2 and mlb 09. its good so far being a ps3 owner that much is true. atleast for me it is.
What do you mean good to be a PS3 owner??? Its terrible!!! So many games so little money and so little time to play all of them!!! I tell you its terrible!!!
It's not good to be a broke ps3 owner.
Nice! Day one purchase for me.
haha stupid slowny... oh wait
"HA HA inFamous has been brought forward to May 26th, HA HA" I know, they are that STUPID!!! ;-D
They'll all be thinking to themselves "Now what is the opposite of 'Delaystation' and how can we spin that to make the PS3 look bad?"
