Infamous will be released on May 26th. However, if you look hard enough, you may be able to find the title at retail stores right now.
Lucky bastards :l
MUST BUY WHERE ARE THESE ! WHERE !
mommmmmmmmmmmmmmy!!!! i wants
to get money to buy this game. Let the age of Infamy begin!
im stuck at work....going to local dumba$$ stores, bet they be selling....
Give them to me!!!! GIVE THEM!!!!! oh and um can anyone spot me 60 bones I'm kinda poor at the moment
If i found a store selling early copies id buy a few, keep one and ebay the rest. That would be great. I took these pics recently My Games http://img9.imageshack.us/i... My blu-ray movies http://img16.imageshack.us/... Some aren't even unwrapped and rock rev i got from that $10 bestbuy thing, you can still see the yellow sticker on top. The glared oin games are Soul Calibur 4 and Street Fighter 4, the glared on movies are The Patriot and Flight of The Phoenix
i just got 2 game on my ps3 and i think this will be the 3rd one
I got 13 and most of them exclusives. Either im a complusive buyer or you are missing out.
I have 40 games (about 25 Blu-Ray, the rest PSN), mostly exclusives. Maybe he just got his PS3?
Good point No harm intended, my point is that 2-3 games for a PS3 is not taking advantage of what is available (and some for a low price since they are old). I buy as much as my wallet allows me, a console is only as good as the games u have, the more the merrier.
this will be my 40th disc game(unless i buy another one before this one comes out) and don't know how many psn games i have lol
Why they don't release it right now if it is done and complete? Tell sites to put reviews on and relase it on 10th of May. So stupid.
Shipments. It's impossible to ship copies to all the retailers in just a few days. Release dates allow them time to get the game out to everyone before it's meant to go on sale. To allow an even playing field if you like. Very few copies actually seem to be in peoples hands. It's more likely they've been acquired from the distribution companies.
Maybe Sony put money behide advertising and they want it to pay off? Like a couple of weeks of adverts gets more sales day 1?
@3.1 That is the most ridiculous thing that I have ever heard. They absolutely can ship to every retailer all the copies that they need. They do it all the time. In fact if you go hang out at a local gamestop/EB you will see almost like clockwork all the new releases get there on Weds. The game has been gold for nearly 3 weeks now, I can almost guarantee that there are enough copies out there to go live this week.
the rest of the world say hi
Because the game is being shipped to retailers as copies are still being manufactured. Often it goes by regions, so perhaps all stores n a certain state or country will get theirs around the same time before moving on to the next. Because remember: there's also stuff like the manuals and cases that need to be made simultaneously and it could never be perfectly in sync, leading to hold-ups depending on what takes the most time to manufacture. The release date leaves room for error - eg: if a major game-breaking bug is discovered and copies can be recalled, or if something unintended slips onto the discs (think GTA: San Andreas hot coffee). So dlp21, it's the starting point that's the hardest - making sure all regions have their copies to sell by the release date. Once that's out of the way they can keep producing more (but in fewer quantities) for the continuous restocking, but many games sell as much as 50% of their 'lifetime' sales in their first month. It's easy to keep making the small quantities for after that. Stores will also be ordering more copies even before release based on the number of preorders they've received. Hope that clears it up. Release dates are there for a reason, even if certain areas or stores get their shipments quite early they aren't allowed to touch them to ensure equal trading worldwide so no retailer gets an unfair advantage.
INFAMOUS>>>>>AL L GAMES IN THE MARKET IN THIS MONTH FACT.
Well... The competition and that hard this month, is it... I think in the end Prototype >>>>> inFamous
^Another Xbox fan hiding behind a multiplat. Reminds me of when they pretended RE5 was the graphics king due to jealousy of Killzone 2. The funny thing is, PS3 owners don't miss out on any of those games.
The fun thing is: I am playing all games, I own a 360, PS3, Wii and 2 x PSP. I own KZ2, Uncharted, Ratchet&Clank, LBP and MGS4. I don't care about RE5 and I am talking about what Prototype has shown and inFamous seems to be. They're both the same kind of game just with some different powers to use. Its sad you're just a PS3 fandroid that can't discuss about anything brought up. EDIT @ the one below: More interesting weapons, attack possibilities, the story, the way how one can 'adapt' someone elses outfit/person... When I see the gameplay movies besides each other, Prototype just seems more interesting http://www.gametrailers.com...
Why do you think Prototype will be better Mart? Yeah i see what you mean. To me it just looks like Prototype wants too much, i mean it looks really fun. But i'm just afraid it well get too boring when you can just pwn everything so easy, but of course thats just my opinion. And you are totally entitled to your opinion aswell
And this footage is also great: http://www.gametrailers.com... Top Ten reasons to get Prototype http://www.gametrailers.com... It just looks as it'll bring more fun, and more gore and blood.
if i am not wrong, on gametrailer's latest IW podcast, one of the guys said that while prototype looked "cooler", infamous in his opinion had much better gameplay.. just saying; after all he has played both
The Mart is right. Geez everyone seems to attack him but his comments normally look legit and unbiased. I have all 3 systems but I like inFamous a little more. Just like he has all 3 but feels like Prototype appeals to him. It's just a matter of taste.
that their target audience are a**h0l3s.. haha.. they did a good job getting those type of people interested! mart, right here, is the best example.. he is also a big a, ummm, audience
Lol Mart attacks Sony like if they have raped his little sister or something... Ignored by: 305 users Just look at some of its(Mart's a troll) previous comments... ----------------------------- ------------------------------- -------- 1) 6 hours ago Wrong. KZ2 will get pwned so hard by Modern Warfare II. Its still Infinity Ward you know. Heck, COD4 even is a better game then KZ2. 2) I feel sorry for Ps3 owners they will never play this fantastic game...who am i kidding I'm glad they won't get to play this game they don't deserve too. 3) 20 hours ago Too bad, you know my comment is spot on with some proof. The only thing PS3 fantards can do is make comments that don't react on the truth. Its hard to hear it, go cry in your bed tonight your mum might give you a hugh. 4) 1 day 2 hours ago Prototype looks to become a better game then inFamous from what I've seen from both games. 5) 1 day 4 hours ago Omar your brain has been damaged being too long in Sony LaLaLand dude. Two of the games mentioned are rated about 8 out of 10 average (source Metacritic). You know which games on teh teh PS3 have been rated about that score that are said to be AAA games by PS3 fantards like yourself??? - GT5p - Heavenly Sword - Motorstorm 1&2 - Yakuza 3 - Warhawk - Metal Gear Online - Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection & T5: DR Online - Disgaea 3 Fack dude, thats about half the number of games out on the PS3. And About all the AAA games SOny fantards allways mention to play. So I guess the 360 has some great 'flops' there! 6) 1 day 4 hours ago Oh Kimmy its a lot more then what you like PS3 droids to believe. You have profiled yourself as a PS3 fantard to the max so you shouldn't say anything. Again. Go talk to Madden Raiders, Deep Brown, Mr. Suede and other people on N4G that are or have been the newsposters for some time, just surf the forums nowadays etc. A lot of people have a PS3 crapped out on them. And certainly not 1 in a million. And also not 1% failure rate. If real research was done, a lot higher % of failure it would be. And again, you as PS3 fantards taking the RROD 'failure rate' of launch consoles, which even was a number taken from an online survey were everyone could attent (including PS3 fantards like you that don't even own a 360) to say it broke down isn't very trustable, let alone that the outcomes could be called significant. Go look up on real surveys. The PS3 just breaks down a lot on BluRay problems and the launch models on YLOD. Again, go search up many threads on this 7) 1 day 7 hours ago What about the PS2 laser diode problem that was very big. What about the sme kind of BluRay problems now. PS fans think Sony can make hardware, but they suck also at certain stuff like the laser diodes. PS3 fans can only grab back on RROD stories of the past and not take any negative talk about PS3 failures. ----------------------------- ------------------------------- ------- =Yep, that seems pretty unbiased to me... Except when he attacks Sony. And that's like... Always? ;) Look at his history of comments, all of them are anti Sony. Everything on PS3 is a piece of crap, the PS2 was crap, Sony is crap... Period. That's Mart for you.
heh! your right. My bad. I'm still kind of new to this site and I don't really look at peoples comment history. bubbles:)
looks can be deceiving
Haha, Mart thinks the Hulk v2.0 is gonna be better than Infamous.
I plan on buying both Infamous and Prototype. They both look great.
And G4 Chicks I invite you to check the comment history of the people who are calling out the Mart. NONE of them are innocent so don't let them pretend you are getting some unbiased opinion from them. TBH I can't decide which one to get but the demo for Infamous will help. I hope that Prototype does the same.
You can all check my comment history if you want, but its mostly just shooting down bots
I'm gonna look. If there's one copy, I'm getting it.
ok mart i quote your word let us see when the meta score come out for both game.... u will get pawn
cool hopefully i can get it :P.
It's true because i saw 'pp' running down the road with his copy!!! ;-D + all the ChatBots on this were chasing him/her/it because he/it got the last Copy!!! ;-D
i got a ps3 and i like it. cant wait for this game
over here but not going to even try. Most likely get that code that says "cant sell till the 26'th". Im assuming they stocked it up to early.
Ooooh, clever trick, selling the game before the reviews (that reveal that the game is crap) come in.
yeah, because this is the first game ever to have a street date leak... unless you count every other game in existence you fail harder than anyone don't know how reviews will pan out.. but if they're anyting like the previews, this game will end up with an AAA rating form most sites
Most games are sold a week prior to retail date, and thats when most reviews are already out. This game is sold almost a month before retail, with no reviews out yet. Thanks for bashing my comments, but it was all for nothing.
If you had actually read the gamespot forum you would know this. The guy got himself a reviewers copy of the game, he says so himself because there isn't an Uncharted 2 voucher inside. Getting a reviewer's copy of the game 23 days before release is nothing special. He just decided to leak all the info.
Sony would get about how much... 400-500 sales due to leaked copies? yeah, that's a lot right there man.. now it does make sense now, Sony forced a leak so they could sell a negligible amount of copies before the likely positive reviews come out!!! as i said... you fail harder than anyone
Because stupid retailers wanted to make money as soon as possible and leaked the game to public you judge that it´s "crap" game ? You are just spreading hate on ps3 in every possible article. Too lame to get a ps3 huh? You keep pretending the 360 is the greatsest thing since sliced bread. WAKE UP !
Selling a couple of hundred copies, is good money for a retailer. Those copies would otherwise have remained on the shelve.
Oh ya? Have you played INfamous? NO? Then STFU!
But in Canada, we don't get the case background art anymore. It's just white now, blank. This copy has some background art, and the disc seems very plain. Fake maybe?
It's because of the French language package. The original English only probably has the artwork. Seulement sur Playstation!!
Yeha I miss the art in in the inside. Only Uncharted and Resistance 1 I still have :(
To gamestop just to make sure. If theres a copy, im gonna try the little persuasion technique. ;]
"Persuasion techniques"? What, are you going to drop on your knees and offer yourself to them? Gamestop is the last place I would try to get a game early, it's the only thing they sell. If any store would stick to the street date, it would be Gamestop. Try Walmart or Target... they're a better bet for your persuasion :S
Honestly, if this is true, then retailers are IDIOTS! Too many times this gen(And I suppose last gen too) this has been happening and it is not good enough, sure like everyone I would love to get a game early, but not at the expense of seeing the game sell bad because of lack of advertising pre the broken release(Which in turn could hurt the possibilities of sequels, etc.). Not to mention when it is only SOME retailers that do it, it becomes even worse as some are able to get it, some can't, which again is just unfair. Retailers either need to get some sort of a brain and realise that release dates are just that and are set for a reason, not just so retailers get the game and sell it immediatley.
How does a title releasing prior to the release date cause the game to sell poorly. I fail to see the coloration between release date, advertising, and poor sales.
Coloration? don't you mean correlation?
Yes. I did.
the gamespot guys said its a 10 game in his book, he makes a thread about the first impression of the game on gamespot go check it out
If you look at the pictures posted on the GAF thread, you will see that there are 2 holes punched out in the bottom right hand corner of the box art. That means it's a review copy of the game. Someone sold this on craigslist or ebay. It was not put on the shelves early by a retailer.
Why wouldn't they just photoshop it if they were going to make up such a big lie? I mean seriously, things are released early all the time by stores that are clueless. I have bought items at Best Buy early. Three weeks seems a little early. Do the stores really get the games in that early just sitting around in storage room? Specialty video games stores seem awfully small to have the space in the back room to store 200 copies of a game for three weeks. I figured they came in the Thursday or Friday before. You could be right, but why would somebody make this up? It is kind of a stupid lie. Why would somebody sell their review copy and risk not getting future review copies? I know a guy that lied to all the movie studios and said he is a reviewer and gets like every mainstream DVD for free. I couldn't believe how simple the process of getting signed up was. I'll bet one could do that for video games too. I know with some stuff you have to send it back after your review, like computer hardware and stuff. But I would think something cheap like a video game or DVD that they would let you just keep it.
if you have ps3 get both- the end
i own a ps3 but im looking forward to prototype more than infamous.
Well then you're a douche. The only thing that interested me in Prototype was when they said that they could add online co-op since they had delayed it and had more time. But they recently said there is no co-op. So it looks like I will be picking their game up on PC. For free. :D
for me i will rent Prototype and then decide weather to buy it. Infamous is a firstday buy for me. @I am rushing. No need to be offensive. PS3 fans gets to pick whatever they prefer and thats the way it should be.
Wow, way to make PS3 owners look good. He can have his opinion can't he? inFamous doesn't appeal to everyone;simple as that. And your definitely killing PC gaming with the torrents by the way. The only one who looked like a douche was you
no crying in the breastmilk!!!
I stand corrected
wot about it :P
