Has the success of Spider-Man has all but killed off Sony’s own superhero game: InFamous.
what ?, lol nobody killed nothing , each one of them are awesome in their respective way.
Exactly. Both IPs can co-exist simply because they are both in fully competent hands.
OMG what a low level idea for an article. These two IPs cannot be compared. We are dealing with a superhero against superhuman video games. in Infamous you go up in rank and you can either do good or bad. That's a very different approach to Spiderman. wrap up and GTFO..
I know what killed. This blog writer has just kill any credibility they have left.
Speaking of infamous , can we spam sucker punch page on twitter demanding a new infamous game 🤷🏽♂️
Yes we should! But we are not getting one until mid next gen, after GoT 2 for sure. Unless they expand into two teams.
They are working hard making Ghost of Tsushima. Not seeing it happening before a few years. We can spam Sanzaru and ask for a new Sly game..they did an amazing job with Thieves in Time.. Sly is an ex Sucker Punch production.
It boggles my mind that Infamous 1, 2, and Festival of Blood still have not been remastered.
both can co-exist. and I will buy both again on launch day because I know they will be AWESOME!
Did you really think Sucker Punch would make another after devoting so much time to Ghost of Tsushima? Their next game after it would’ve most likely been a sequel to GoT regardless of the success Spider-Man would’ve had.
Spiderman didn’t kill Infamous... but it did do it better than Infamous.
I’d disagree I still think infamous 2 is the best superhero game ever made Is it better then second son? Definitely
It still pains me how low Infamous 2 sold. That game was amazing and I actually like it more than Spiderman
The powers were awesome but left more to be desired in other areas.
I prefer Spider-man to any of the Infamous games and I loved all of those.
One day I hope we get inFAMOUS 3 with Cole vs the Beast...Delsin Perfect close to his trilogy if they did that If Second Son was actually a Beast Origin story then that would be amazing.
I think that theory works well and hopefully one day we get it!
Sign me in.
Simple, yet to the point. Lol.
Ive actually thought of infamous Second Son while strolling through Spider-Man’s Manhattan, reading Daily Bugles. Visually and just how it feels down there, I definitely get inFamous vibes. They’ve aged well in that regard. Tight & polished. Room for both, but I don’t expect another inFamous any time soon.
Sucker Punch is working on Ghost of Tsushima right now. How dafuq would Spider-Man kill a series that wasn’t even being worked on in the first place? If anything Spider-Man killed any chance of Sunset Overdrive getting a sequel since Insomniac would rather follow up the more successful property.
Exactly this. Insomnia/Sony/Marvel will want to capitalise on the success of Spider-Man going forward; so it's likely that other Insomniac projects will take a back seat.
Other Insomniac titles don’t have to be taking a backseat for that. In the four years developing Spider-Man, Insomniac was able to produce Ratchet & Clank ‘16 as well as Song of the Deep. Insomniac is a big enough development team to work on multiple projects at a time, unlike Sucker Punch.
Insomniac has enough employees to have 2-3 teams making games. They're one of the largest indie studios inexistence, and are made up two different development houses. I think ssod was killed more by ms 5than anything else. Game didn't sell well enough to make other publishers want to find it, and ms sees no reason to pursue it, likely because they don't own the ip and it wasn't a huge instant success.
No, it didn't. We'll likely get Infamous 3 next gen. Secon Son was a really great game, even if it fell a little short of the first two games. Sucker Punch wanted to work on something different, hence Ghost of Tsushima. But they haven't indicated they're done with Infamous.
It depends on the quality. Sony will reject Infamous if it's not Spider quality because the bar has been raised. So...if it's Infamous after Tsushima, you can be sure the next Infamous will be better than Spider or expect something else entirely, maybe sequel of Tsushima.
They didn't reject days gone even though it doesn't look like it's going to live up to tlou. I think Sony understands the differences between these games to not get and demand they all be the same. Infamous is diffent enough from sm, that There is no reason the two can't coexist.
The only similar thing between TLOU and Days Gone is the appocalyptic world setting. The gameplay is totally different from what i see in the trailer. IMO. Being open world action superhero games, Spider and Infamous fundamentally have many things similar. Only the execution of Spider is overall better, more variant, more advanced (it's a newer game for sure) with bigger budget, (maybe) more talented developers. But whether those two can coexist or not it's up to Sony. If i may speculate, Sucker Punch is taking different path from Infamous so we'll get Ghost of Tsushima. They're aiming for around 90's with GOT on Metascore rather than 80's on Infamous, just like Guerilla with Horizon.
And the same differences don't exist between SM and Infamous? One is a modern setting, and one is a darker almost dystopian world. They're both open world games, but they have a fundamentally different approach to how they handle the characters and the story itself.
I was hoping for sucker punch to develop spiderman but insomniac did okay i guess
HELLL no. I still think the InFamous series is one of the bet superhero games IMO.
Apples to oranges. If say infamous is on the backbench at the moment anyhow since 3 main titles and two standalone disc based games released in quick succession. It needed a break as much as I loved it and I've actually platnuimed a few of them it needed an overhaul to make their worlds feel more lived in.because they were always stunning graphically but kind of empty especially ss
Nope. I think fans of inFamous would gladly welcome another entry. I know I would.
yeah absolutely, because a great openworld superhero games instantly kills every other out there when it outsells it. So much truth, it hurts....
Infamous needs a huge evolution if they go back to it.
if anything infamous killed itself. have you played the second one? it was boring asf, a far cry from the brilliant first one. a spider had nothing to do with it.
More like Spider-Man killed sunset overdrive 2 since infamous is another studio
Did they hire cleanprincegaming or downward thrust to write their articles?
Yes infamous is one hit wonder
One hit wonder? There were three games. You don't know what you are talking about.
The first one was the better one second and third are decent and meh one hit wonder
Infamous second son killed infamous it was rushed for the ps4 launch with graphics over gameplay and didn't have the same quality as infamous 1&2 or even blood rush imo. Hopefully we will see another infamous game but only if it lives up to the first 2 games because they were truely special.
Second Son was awesome, imo, and incredibly underrated. Either way, it was the fastest/best selling game in the franchise so I don't see how it killed the franchise.
thats why i said imo, because no matter how successful it was i don't think it can touch the first 2 games. Sales numbers don't make games better in my eyes.
No, and I didn't provide the sales numbers to say it was a better game. I provided them to show that Second Son did not kill the Infamous series as you said.
Game play was pretty good in i:as. ItIts world was kind of lacking, but the controls were great, and the powers were fun.
A new sly cooper game would be nice
Um, no...the bar is simply raised now.
Heh yea they could co exist but why would sony want two similar games when they have and can keep sucker punch on Ghosts
"Will we ever see a PS4 version of Infamous or is it set to remain trapped on the PlayStation 3? It’s not looking great now is it …" *Checks mental history* Man, this guy will be excited to know that Infamous already has a PS4 version. How are some people allowed to write about game. Also, Ghost of Tsushima is in the works, depending on how that goes, we'll probably see a sequel to that before another infamous.
I think Sony is working this gen hard to create a lot of new ips, along with bolstering the reputation of their existing ones. Its pretty obvious Sony is setting itself up to push the next gen on the quality of its exclusives
So stupid. smh
Infamous Second Son is massively, massively underrated..
The Spiderman games does remind me of Infamous:SS.
