Infamous 2 Pokes Fun At The Xbox 360

Geek Revolt writes "Infamous 2 is one of the PS3’s most anticipated games this year; while Sony doesn’t own Sucker Punch they stay loyal. In fact, they’re so loyal they slipped a joke about the Xbox 360 into Infamous 2. In a new gameplay video (around the 3:31 mark) there’s a sign that's directed towards the Xbox 360."

Bulletstorm did something like this too and everyone (including the media) laughed.
I wonder if InFAMOUS 2 will get a special treatment because it's a PS3 exclusive.

Joule2682d ago (Edited 2682d ago )

They did it on purpose to warn all the 360 users not to put this incredible game into their 360s....

...or it will die.

kancerkid2682d ago

And when MS does things like this, they are being immature.

TheXgamerLive2682d ago

Sad joke. The red ring issue hasn't been an issue for over 2 1/2 years now so this is an old joke. infamous 2 looks to be a fun game, too bad they took the low road here.

I bet there still wearing "free Weezy" t-shirts too, lol.:)

Imtey2681d ago

Before people scream "PS3 FANBOYS WAWAWAWA", its useful to note that the founders of suckerpunch originally worked at Microsoft ;)

zeal0us2681d ago

Seen the RROD joke from bulletstorm, I really don't care about it, only ppl it really offends is the hardcore 360 fanboys.

Army_of_Darkness2681d ago

that was totally immature dude! I'm sooooo mad right thurrrr!! how dare you make fun of my suffering sucker punch!!!! How dare you!!!

Electroshocked2681d ago

Sweet, this makes me want this game even more and it makes me love Sucker Punch even more. Sucker Punch is awesome!

TKCMuzzer2681d ago

@XGamer
It's a joke get over it, it's not sad it's remotely funny. I have a 360 and suffered and I think it's only fair Microsoft are reminded how badly their console was made.
To say it's ok now is wrong, it's not. Microsoft new the machine was faulty but still sold it and replaced faulty consoles (less than 12 month old) with refurbs.
People should not forget as MS will be relying on you and me to buy their next bit of poorly made hardware.

XGamer said "The red ring issue hasn't been an issue for over 2 1/2 years now."

Oh, thank god. So Microsoft had somebody slip into my house at some point over the last 2 1/2 years and replace my 4th 360 console with a reliable piece of hardware? That's fantastic. They should have put out a press release or something. Here I've been hesitant to buy games for it because it's been so unreliable in the past. If I had only known the problem had been solved and my worries over!

MaxXAttaxX2681d ago

Seriously, some of you need to stop being so hurt and defensive about it.

Electroshocked2681d ago

Oh, and that gameplay with them huge ''Behemoths'' and ''forced conduits'' totally blew me away, I'm so hyped for this game and any InFamous fan who isn't is crazy, this game is going to be amazing, and I mean amazing.

JohnnyBadfinger2681d ago

I dunno... Red Ring Electronics sounds like a top quality fictional electronics company to me... therefore it cant be related to Microsoft.

There was a Infamous 1? never heard of it until now...

Valkyre2681d ago (Edited 2681d ago )

they are making fun in general if you watch the beta videos... they are making fun of Little Big Planet, Uncharted, Call of Duty, Assassins Creed, Halo , Ratchet n Clank...

It's called satire, you guys should google about it. They just want to make the player have a laugh while playing... easter egg style...

Just for your information:

Assassins Creed -> Assassins Need (love too)
Little Big Planet -> Little Big Unit
Call of Duty -> Call of Booty
Ratchet and Clank -> Latch it and skank (my favorite)
Halo Reach -> Hey Low Reach
Need for Speed -> No Need for Speed
Epic Mickey -> Epic Hickey

Here is the video btw:

Seriously guys its just fun for the gamer, and some of them are hilarious really! :D

Active Reload2681d ago

I almost didn't notice it from all the jaggies...

WetN00dle692681d ago (Edited 2681d ago )

No mames wey, tu no eres un jugador, mas como un fanboy! El que es un jugador no anda respondiendo de esa manera!

overload...overload...BOOM!

Dread2682d ago

what was it that they did?

did it poke fun of sony or was everyone included?

please provide a link..thx

finnhima2682d ago (Edited 2682d ago )

lol. I guarantee you that this simple easter-egg joke is going to catch un-necessary flank and blown out of proportion. Some sore ass reviewer is going to dock points from the game, and some "fanboyism within the industry?!" article will get made. When its a ps3 exclusive in question, all forms of logic go out the window and it gets picked apart.

Bet on it.

kancerkid2681d ago

Or maybe you just think there is some kind of conspiracy against the console you own.

Don't know why you think this is such a big deal...

KDubyah2681d ago

Still stuck on the 'everyone is out to get the PS3' conspiracy theory?

negative2681d ago

@KDubyah

Would you expect anything less from a fanboy filled PS3 site???

sobekflakmonkey2675d ago

I would hate to say finnhima is correct, but I mean lets be honest...he is.

Thatguy-3102682d ago

Screw the fact that theyre making fun of MS..This was my first time seeming this gameplay !!!! =O Can't believe how far Sucker Punch has taken the Infamous IP with this installment..IMO this is how Infamous one should have been(variety of powers, good graphics, mutated monsters etc.) but I like the fact that they're going all out on this one...IDK I think this has a good chance of being GOTY over uncharted simply because it's such a big jump from it's predecessor. This yr it's gonna have to be tough to choose

NeoTribe2681d ago

Dont think it has the charm and appearance to compete with uncharted but id love to be wrong.

galest2681d ago (Edited 2681d ago )

cause bullet storm was a shitty game. You can't poke fun at a franchise game that is more successful than poker lol. Bullet Storm FAIL!

orange-skittle2681d ago

FAIL? It did rather well. You should check out the figures

50Terabytespersec2681d ago

Amazing Graphics & physics and onscreen action!SPU's going to work !..
The Helicopters in the sky the engaging fights during the boss battle the guts all point to a hell of a game!
I can't wait to see this in Native 720p on my SOny 42" Bravia..
All the onscreen action is phenomenal!
First day BUY!!

Sony3602681d ago

It'd have been funny if it was made 3 years ago when the 360 still had this problem.

catguykyou2681d ago

The Bullet Storm one was done by accident though it was noticed shortly before release and left in cause they thought it was funny.

WetN00dle692681d ago

I dont see why not. Only if its with in good taste.

JVIV2681d ago

What about yellow light ?

I shop at Red Ring Electronics for all my gaming needs. :)

Lou-Cipher2682d ago (Edited 2682d ago )

It's a great store. All my stuff catches on fire, but the warranty makes up for all the damage.
:)

Denethor_II2682d ago

It's okay because they replace broken items within two weeks, and then blind loyalty is restored.

ComboBreaker2681d ago (Edited 2681d ago )

It didn't covered my burnt down house, or my dog who died a horrible death in the fire.

Ultraplayerxp2681d ago (Edited 2681d ago )

^^But hey at least they'll replace my stuff for free! Great service indeed! Now I only gotta wait 2-3 weeks. I'm so excited :D

kreate2681d ago

make sure to burn ur stuff before the proper time period and read all the fine print.

it would suck after u burn it, they tell u dont qualify for a free warranty service becuz the warranty only covers if u burn a certain spot.

You shop there multiple times i am sure.

Would be funnier if a quarter of the ring got burnt out or something xD

sarshelyam2681d ago

Ha! Agreed...maybe it will? Good call anyhow.

CoLD FiRE2681d ago

They can't make it look exactly the same because Microsoft trademarked it. :p
