A retailer this week price cut Sony Corp.'s Infamous for the Playstation 3 to under $50 in a new round of video game discounts.
I just beat the game for the first time, played through with good karma. This was one of the best games I have played all year, the story was unbelievable. I really wish I could go into more detail but I don't want to spoil the game for those of you that have yet to pick this up. Evil play through here I come.
oh yeah i had a brain freeze at the end of the game. looking 4ward 2 infamous 2
Brain freeze is an understatement, it was more like a mind f...
you two should do a podcast. Seems like everyone that talks about a game nowadays has to spoil it in some way. I'm sill in the Warren and I'm just messing around. I've done 17 of 21 stunts and I'm collecting shards just for the heck of it. Love the game. Once I finish with summer school I'll play it non-stop again.
Kind of makes you wonder how missed a story that good. The end of the game was defiantly unexpected. The story left me pleasantly surprised. Don't sleep on this one. EDIT: lol Every time I get a bubble someone has to go and take it from me.
Yah I played the demo the other day. I was fairly impressed with the game. I might haft to give it a rent some time. I am going to rent Prototype when it comes out, so I guess I will see how they stack up.
I was actually completely disappointed with the demo.. It just didn't sell me. But then I received the game as a gift and I have to say, It's incredible. The story does have a slight variation depending on Karma, but it's the difference in powers that really makes the change awesome.. I'm testing out prototype as we speak.. I really can't see why they're compared so much.. Open world with powers I guess. Prototype sucks in comparison though.. IGN nailed it with their review..
this is definitely a brilliant game. I intended to take a week break before going back and beating it again (inFAMOUS). Especially after beating it in two days right at launch. well, it was SO GOOD I couldn't wait and had the platinum trophy by release weeks end. It's not often a game is good enough that I actually want to play it again let alone wanting to jump right back into it and finishing back to back.... I'd say best game of the year but with Uncharted 2 along with a couple others coming later this year I'd be hard pressed to say just that. But easily one of my top 10 all time. ;)
This website, http://sh!tbrix.com/, describes inFamous' ending (NSFW) Replace the ! with an i.
or that the story even keeps me playing. Discovering new powers and the varied missions are what keep me addicted. The story seems like some generic comic book/video game cliches to me, but its a video game they rarely have good stories.
i cant do the right back at ya stunt driving me crazy!!!!
this is the best game this summer it's a steal at this price buy it oh wait, you bought the wrong console.. stick with prototype.. after you get back your 3fixme from repairs
Pretty sure my 360 is sitting right next to me working and not in repairs. This game is already getting price cuts a few weeks into it's release?
get early price cuts see LBP for more information !!!
except lbp did sell well lol
Your character dies! Just kidding! :-) Buy it people!
This was one of the few games actually worth the $60 price tag. More than worth. $50 is just a great deal, for what you will be getting entertainment-wise.
...the pricecut didn't come from Sony. Try reading next time. :o
Guess I missed the part where he mentioned Sony....
well why would amazon want to cut into prototypes sales? and even why would sony for that matter considering it is also available on the ps3 :/
just got to warren and only 35 percent in, can't wait to finish it, it is really fun, so much fun you don't want to stop playing.
You stole my line dude wtf? lol i will say it again and again i owed 2 3fixme's and i will never buy another one. PS3 hasn't let me down yet.
In Asia, InFamous is out of stock everywhere... I wonder why... :( I havent gotten my copy yet... damn it.
Usually games only get discounted this early when they're not selling well. I hope that's not the case because inFAMOUS is my favorite game of the year so far and it really deserves to be a success.
It's from Amazon. They always have discounts, even if the item is new.
i bought mine at gamecrazy and they told me it's selling very well. that was last week.
Lots of games get discounts soon after launch. Don't know why, but they do. The Orange Box was being sold for $30 at Fry's a couple weeks after launch and that game sold loads when it came out.
Yeah, Fry's has a lot of early discounts. I remember in 2006, I got Final Fantasy XII on the release day for 30 dollars when it was 50 bucks everywhere else.
Play both sides, it's worth it. Also getting the platinum is easy if you're willing to put in man hours.
Just ordered it. Got free Shipping too. Hearing great things about this one.
Beat the game twice already, it was epic. I'm about to play through the third time for my platinum trophy.
I didnt beat the game twice, and it wasnt epic. Im not about to play through the third time for my platinum trophy. Happy?
just got the shield. man what a life saver. i still have one more undiscovered power. all the way to the right. is that where the giga watt thing from gamestop pre order shows up? i hope not, cause i'm looking forward to one more power. i hate gamestop and well never shop there.
gigawatt blades are the last icon, it just makes a one hit melee strike and upgradable
Nope the last icon on the right is the last power you get you bring back the electricity to half of the third island... Its an awesome power!! **SPOILER** Imagine becoming Zeus or Thor! **SPOILER** Don't know where the gigawatt blades apply...
It is the last power on the right; I had a code to get them right away, don't know if you get them otherwise. But I never use them, or the shield. And I didn't play it again; once I'd seen the good ending, i'd already shot my inFAMOUS wad.
I think Infamous will be huge, if I had to guess I'd say it's probably going to outsell Gears of War.
Gears is a beast sales wise...
Come on now...The game is good, but that might be setting its' goals a little out of reach.
it wont outsell gears. but i see it selling 3mill. if it doesn't it will be a travesty. because the game is truly amazing.
3 million? Wow that'd be cool. I was joking about it outselling Gears also. :D
@12 Let it beat KZ2 sales first.
best open game ever played.. the NPC really hated me.. lolz got to full evil Karma and got all the evil powers.. amazing.. it's like playing as a Sith Lord.. playing through it again as Good Cole..
And truth be told, couldn't wait to start beating on civilians on the good playthough. A-holes always standing around taking my picture. I swear I saw a few falling down just so I'd come over and help them - then they started asking for my autograph! No really, one was down but got up before I could do anything, and asked me for an autograph. And not to give anything away, but has anyone else been minding their own business, well into the game, when some one woman says "I'd tap that!" while talking to another about Cole? Stopped me dead in his tracks.
you know, here's something fun and demented and twisted at the same time.. knock some random pedestrian out... heal them and before the can get up, kick them again.. and repreat the process... it's really fun and you can go on forever until your heart is filled with glee..
First thing I did to one of the people handing out missions. The only thing better is putting a sticky on a bad guy when they aren't looking. Like I said, once the civies started getting on my nerves, couldn't wait to play evil. Nothing sweeter than taking out a mob: most of them are unarmed and the cops pack nothing close to what the Reavers carry.
I also finished the game for the first time as good karma and the story was a little crazy like every story on comic books but I loved it ! Many reviews while saying the bad things about Infamous they mentioned the story. Wow, I loved it, much better then what I was expecting it would be. I still can't understand that a game with a super ultra crazy and exagerated story like MGS4 gets a 10 and some reviews don't give a 10 to infamous (give like 9.5) Because the story is not good. LOL
Just got the Platinum for inFamous. It's not too hard, once you have all the shards, the only thing tough is getting the stunts, but even those (except Right Back At Ya and the 3-in-1 shockwave stunt) are mostly easy. Too bad the games short, because now I'm gonna trade this for Prototype and see how that is. Just hope the Gamestop near me gets it soon, since it was SUPPOSE to be released yesterday (6/9)
I thought I was the only one who had trouble getting that damn shockwave stunt Have a Nice Fall. It's not even hard to do, but if you clear out the Neon and Warren before the stunt appears, then all the Reapers and Dustmen no longer appear in packs on the roof. LOL
yeh getting all the blast shards is gonna take time :( at least it's not half as tedious as GTA cus of the way u can scan for electricity sources/shards. i've only got 190 of them though :(
Already got a drop in price? Another PS3 game that doesn't sell? @HueyNewton2008 You're just very lucky then. I got my PS3 and after just 3 weeks my BluRay diode died. Go in the forums and you'll see several well known N4G members that had their PS3's died, some even a couple of times.
Well,considering the price is over 80$ with taxes here in Quebec, that probably wasn't a big seller if it only between 10-15hours of gameplay + 10 hours for side mission and stuff. But if it goes down to 60$ with tax and all, I'm all for it!
The xbot logic is absolutely inhuman. They are complaining about a AAA game being $50 and not $60. wow..just..wow..
One of my favorite games of all time! Buy it!
Games are overpriced. This isn't about Infamous as much as the industry itself. Games shouldn't be priced differently than any other commodity. Infamous is a great game, but it's hardly unique. If games were priced based on quality I would be happier. There should be 20-30-40-50-60-70 dollar disc games at retail. I would be a much happier gamer and the market might flourish from a realistic pricing model.
I love Infamous, but $50 should be the max for a game with no multiplayer. This isn't about Infamous as much as the industry itself. Games shouldn't be priced differently than any other commodity.

not bad at all, early price cut. i guess all ps3 and xbox owners can play infamous happily. OH HOLD ON... never mind :D
