So it's multiplayer co-op.

Or Move.

Or BOTH. :D

Sucker Punch said they're working on this secret for 2 years so it can't be Move related.

Probably multiplayer. maybe 3D?
Tommykrem  +   1241d ago
Why can't it be Move related if they've been working on it for two years? Move was announced 1 and a half year ago, Sucker Punch could easily have had plans of using it for two years.

Anyway, multiplayer somehow seems more likely. It could be versus as well.
limewax  +   1241d ago
Hopefully neither and something that is related to SP making the experience worth putting in more time on the game
Dark_king  +   1241d ago
technically move was being developed for PS2 over 10 years ago.So any first party would of had knowledge of the Move in the last few years.
jneul  +   1241d ago
oh yeah it can't be move sarcasm when other games already have move support in, soocom4 move integration only took a couple of months i heard, that is how easy it is!!

3D would be nice
inveni0  +   1241d ago
It's co-op. There are two sidekicks in inFamous 2. Maybe a couple friends will be able to play with you.
TheLastGuardian  +   1241d ago
I hope it's Move compatibility. Co-op would be cool too.
Tommykrem  +   1241d ago
@Dark_King
Sucker Punch isn't first party, but I get your point.
Dark_king  +   1241d ago
@Tommykrem I always forget the actually own themselves.But I should have said first or second party anyway.Both get treated the same by Sony there apart of the family,so there in on things Sony is working on.However I don't really think its Move related,that wouldn't be a good secret since Move can be patched into a game fairly easy.So online co-op is probably the most likely.Of course a online mode code be fun build a charactar online to battle others.But with DC universe doing that on a massive level I don't see it being that.

This is really awesome news. I don't know about any co-op or MP, but this is super cool.

PLAY. CREATE. ELECTRIFY!!!

Starhawk is right on the first one I think. Just makes sense judging from the trailer. That would not be huge for a game like this though... it would be EPIC.
egidem  +   1241d ago
It could be DLC related.
darksied  +   1241d ago
Multiplayer co-op online and offline, with move support, 3D, native 1080p, sharpshooter compatible, 60fps, ...

Sorry, I was daydreaming there.
metsgaming  +   1241d ago
i really hope its some online coop of some sort
Shanks  +   1241d ago
Multiplayer Co-op.
Reborn  +   1241d ago
I was slightly thinking the same thing.
koehler83  +   1241d ago
You're the second person in a row to use that phrase. Where did that come from? What kind of co-op is not multiplayer?

Is there supposed to be a slash? Multiplayer/Co-op?

Is that a nomenclature thing, like "ice" hockey or tuna "fish"?
Raendom  +   1241d ago
Offline co-op aka split-screen.
Shanks  +   1241d ago
@koehler83
I meant online co-op.
wise ass.

Dark_king  +   1241d ago
co-op does not mean multiplayer though,RE5 single player is truthfully co-op.Anything that has two or more characters that work together could be considered co-op.
koehler83  +   1241d ago
Asking a question doesn't make one a wise ass, wise ass. Raendom clearly misunderstood as well. The only reason I was curious was because it had been said twice. In a row.

Co-op = Multiplayer
Multiplayer =/ Online

How have the two become interchangeable?

There is hockey that does not involve ice. Read a book
cyborg  +   1241d ago
damn squib
is all I can think of right now. :\
Godmars290  +   1241d ago
They've got two separate characters with their own powers which you apparently gain and use in later levels - of course its multiplayer.
Balt  +   1241d ago
Boy, a multiplayer mode no one will play. Water down the sp, spend more resources on a mode that will be forgotten in 3 months.
Lamarthedancer  +   1241d ago
They'll go right back to COD leaing us with a not so great single player.
jammydude  +   1241d ago
Uncharted 2..... remember the MP mode not detracting from the story at all? Just wait and see, will you? It might not even be an MP reveal
silkrevolver  +   1241d ago
Just let them reveal it before you dog on it, ok?
CernaML  +   1241d ago
Sometimes I wonder if you're the guy who opened up that GamersGettingPlayed YouTube channel.
Ninver  +   1241d ago
GTFO troll!

This is sucker punch we are talking about. A respectable and hardworking Sony dev. Whatever they do i know i'll like.

Jumping the gun, don't you think?

On topic, I had no doubt the secret was inFAMOUS-related. Multiplayer, here we come!
Alpha_Gamer  +   1241d ago
Right because after seeing recent videos, it`s clear the game is watered down /s.
darthvadar  +   1241d ago
yet another negative comment by the n4g emo, stay in your cage.
ExitToExisT  +   1241d ago
it's multiplayer or online co-op.. i believe mp would be very fun in infamous
silkrevolver  +   1241d ago
Ooooohhh...
“Inovative-ish.” EXCITING! Can’t wait!
GoldPS3  +   1241d ago
How about adding a Resistance 3 or Uncharted 3 beta to Infamous 2. I'd be more excited for that.
SuperStrokey1123  +   1241d ago
I dont know about MP... im not holding my breath on it.
Ninver  +   1241d ago
Sony first party devs innovating? what!? never heard of such a thing /s
telekeneticmantis  +   1241d ago
Let's see if a dev making a Sony exclusive
can actually make a smart decision. I've got Brink, Battlefield, and more coming out this year. So Insomniac, Sucker Punch, Sony, Give me a reason to buy your games, or give me a reason to buy DLC for Battlefield and/or Brink, I can always test your games out at my friends, or through demos. No content(vehicles, multiplayer, movement options, customization etc.) No buy.
Daver  +   1241d ago
hmmm wt* are you talking about... go away...
Alcohog  +   1241d ago
If you're buying BF3 for a console, then you have already failed. I shall now go weep for you.
telekeneticmantis  +   1241d ago
who cares
it's much more convenient and the PC isn't a dramatic leap forward from todays consoles, so weep infront of your small screens and keyboards and laggers as much as you'd like
Alcohog  +   1241d ago
BF3 will be a dramatic leap, noob. Not sure if serious.
Legendary-Status  +   1241d ago
Lol do yall think that movie sucker punch looks any good thought it was related to them for the moment..but I think mp or co-op will be good in infamous 2
Masterchef2007  +   1241d ago
Im betting on an awesome online coop mode.
LordRydell  +   1241d ago
I guess the Playstation Network logo on the box art is most probably revealing the secret...

Zeke is brutally murdered by Kratos,
That would be an awesome secret.
Dark_king  +   1241d ago
yes it would.God I wanted to kill him so bad.
joeorc  +   1241d ago
no...that would be awful
well at least he could wait..lol

I mean Zeke did make cole an Awesome weapon:

the AMP:

The Amp is the main melee weapon used by Cole in InFamous 2.

The Amp is built by Zeke and is made to channel Cole's electricity power to increase the power of his melee attacks.

The Amp looks like a large double-prong cattle prod, that Cole uses to channel his electricity into and bash enemies with.
When in use, Cole pulls it from his backpack, which would extend and channel electricity.

The Amp is used, controller wise, by hitting the square and triangle buttons. Cole can also pull off combos with the Amp, and there will be finishing moves with this weapon.

this is pure gold , I love this by the look's of this this will be a blast.

Sony is unveiling a brand new system in the sequel that will allow players to place enemies objects and more to create your very own challenges that pop up in New Marais. A trailer listed missions that included: Defense, Escort, Search and Destroy, Survival, Shooting Gallery, Platforming, and Obstacle Course.

the shooting gallery..hehehe Ambush?

Play. Create. Share.

Now, that would be awesome if every Sony Exclusive share that theme. On PC, it is a given that people make mods. It is a natural evolution for console games if you ask me.
clearelite  +   1241d ago
To reiterate what some people have mentioned above and more...
Probably some kind of innovative online multiplayer experience. What else could they have been working on that took so long?
Move- No (easy to implement)
3D- No(wouldn't be a big secret)
If it's a "Big secret" it's probably something pretty spiffy.
They are amazing devs, so I doubt we'll be disappointed.
