If you beat the original Infamous, collected the 350 blast shards, and earned the Platinum Trophy, chances are you'd be down with Infamous 2 rewards based on those accomplishments. Developer Sucker Punch agrees.
Yes! Nice to be rewarded for getting the platinum.
The best part is that it reads the trophy data, and not the save data. I lost my original saves for this game when my PS3 died, but I still have the platinum trophy which is great, so I will be able to get these rewards.
I'm n the same boat but at the same time... Do I want to start it on easy mode? Or just play it on a more challenging setting?... This is going to be something to think on I believe...
Yeah me too. I was about to ask but I take it by your comment I too am safe!?
Same here too got my hero edition on pre-order can't wait for E3 week, E3 and Infamous 2 = Win.
Yeah I'm so glad that it checks trophies instead of saves. Last PS3 died but I got the platinum so I'm cool. Smart thinking SP.
EPICCCC. Same I lost my save data when PS3 died but I do have the platinum.
@all above....Guys, flash drives are dirt cheap. Anytime you beat a game BACK THAT SAVE UP!! :)
yeah i lost all my saves after ps3 died too, its crappy how they wipe the hdd
Great, now I have to go searching for that last stupid blast shard I never found! 1 shard between me and a platinum, but I lost my save so technically I have to get them all again... but it's the last one I remember!(shakes fist at Infamous case)
can Sony please get the PSN Store back so I can play Infamous one? Ready for Infamous two? seriously....Only game on that list i haven't played rest I played on PS3 and PSP.
@BiggCMan: Exactly what I was going to say!
Im good then since I platinum it.
It's actually sweet! I have 2 infamous saves (1 Hero, 1 infamous) each one completed to 100%, each one with all stunts, side missions, blast shards, dead drops and upgrade powers done, with the platinum there. I so can't wait!!
Really awesome! :D Finally it's nice to be noticed for your trophies and actually being rewarded for all that hard work.
I just need to do the special moves list then i have the platinum, my god some of them are hard.
i have 1 fricken shard to find. I searched the city for hrs.
Oh God, I was there once... 1 damn shard. Sucks, I feel your pain. As for the stunts, do them before you beat the game. Once you finish, it's hard to find enemies. Those 2 along with finishing the last enemy (no spoilers) on hard are the 3 toughest.
According to the article, you don't have to get *all* the shards, getting 50% of them gets you some extra energy. Maybe there's other rewards the article doesn't list for the Platinum or something, but it doesn't look like you need the plat to get all the I2 rewards.
Just use the blast shard map on GameFAQs and start marking them off one by one. It's a pain, but you'll eventually find it. Just keep mashing R3 and watching for blue dots. The 2 hardest things to get plat in Infamous were finishing all the stunts and beating the game on hard. Some of the stunts require pure freakin luck. Also beating the game on hard was annoying, not because the game was hard; hell it wasn't any different than the other difficulties EXCEPT for the Kessler boss fight. Christ that alone makes the platinum difficulty of the game at least 7/10 if not an 8.
see i had no problem with any of that. I did use the shard map ;( but somewhere i missed one going thru them a 2nd time is awful lol. also 1 stunt that you may need help with is kill 3 peopl eon a rail at the same time. There is a how to on youtube to get them to spawn in the first city after jumping out to the piers. Sounds confusing but i bet you need that one. I didn't find anything on infamous hard well except the last shard. I was missing 2 i thought 1 and i climbed up the super tall building that hides one up top thats not pingable from ground level and i saw it and was dancing etc. picked it up and it said you now need 1 more i almost died :(
Yeah I had the one shard left problem, you try to be as methodical as possible but still one shard left. Im sure i found it way off land on one of the small rock outcrops. Didn't mean to reply to myself then
Yes you need to search the really high places and the rocky outcrops, piers and the big cranes. You will get it eventually :)
When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."
Is this done via trophies or saves because i lost my infamous save when my ps3 ylod'd. I got all them shards too...
Read the article man, its as clear as day.
Well the title says importing SAVES and in the article it says TROPHY sync. So which is it?
should have been something specific for platinum imo like a skin but great idea better than uncharted 2 which was a bit weak with its save import.
i traded infamous for red dead redemption before i got to finish it :(
when ps store back up infamous is one the the "free" games you can pick
even though infamous is incredible that is a good trade
" Specific Trophies for Specific Infamous decisions: Reflect side missions, Dead Drops and dialog variety in Infamous 2." YES ! That's what a sequel should always do
With the welcome back reward I'm going after that platinum. Does the save file I already have on my PS3 from the disc version work the the DL version though?
it the same game so yes just one does not required a disc i know it works because i played the 1 hour trail on ps+ before the down time an used my old save files
Ok, definitely picking it then +helpful bubble.
it should work and i think in goin for it now i win paid 20 for infamous blu ray traded for red dead now i get infamous digital for free and i cam play without beatin up my blu ray drive :) win for the beast
im happy its by trophy level cause my fat ps3 died a few months after i platted infamous so i have no trophy data. i was going to select infamous 1 for the psn rewards and try to run through it in case infamous 2 data was going to have an association with infamous 1 save data. relieved to know
Thats it' I'm off to play inFamous *teleports*
Very good news, seeing as I got the Platinum for inFamous :D
Got the Plat, getting all the bonuses. Nice add on!
I dont have the plat as i have not yet beaten in on hard (doing hard on bad but stopped about 80% of the way through). Ill import my "normal" mode one where i was famous and got all the shards
Word of advice: Don't stand still when you face Kessler.
First i was a little dissapointed when i sav the article title since two PS3s died on me since i played inFamous but then i read it and saw it will check your trophies not savegames. Awesome. My platinum is waiting.
Dammit, I delete save data from games I've finished. :(
Shouldn't matter as long as you're playing on the same username. Article says it uses trophies to determine the rewards.
Glad they actually read the trophies instead of save data since I deleted mine. Now I'm even angrier though because I got to 349 and couldn't find 350.
it happenned to me while i was playing the game too . i replayed it a third time to get all the shards ...
Big fan of the trend in having a sequel take into account the previous game's playthrough. Makes a much more cohesive series.
This is awesome. I hope they do this for Uncharted 3 and Resistance 3.
Nice, since we get some bonuses for Infamous 1 platinum, then I will start the game on Hard difficulty :)
I love trophy incentives! And inFAMOUS's Platinum didn't feel like Grinding at all to get it either, I thought it was a fun experience :)
ahhhh man. try telling me that when i was finding the blast shards. i needed one to get the trophy and had to search every inch of the 3 islands. man was i excited when i finally found the last one :)
I never had to go through the dissection of the whole city for shards. I just searched as i played and happen to pick them all up on my first playthrough. It's Awesome Sucker Punch is gonna reward us for it. Hard work pays off! ;)
Nice!!! I got the inFamous platinum in the first week or two the game was out. Nice to see them carry stuff over for inFamous 2. :D
Coincides well with the free game from the store. Looks like i'll have to platinum it.
Man..while this is a FANTASTIC idea, i accidentaly overwrote my 90% Evil Playthrough on infamous so i might have to do it again, its a question of if i can be bothered...Or Not. :/
ahhhh re read.... thank god it reads the trophies.... all my saved data from infamous was on my old 60 gig that i sent in for repair.
Sweet I should just plat infamous since I have 83% completed.
Cool that they can use trophies like that. But I have all the good/evil trophies so how will that work?
