Prototype, the upcoming shape-shifting sandbox action title from Activision, has an official street date! The game will be out in Europe on June 5, and it will hit a few days later in North America on June 9.
InFamous and Prototype around the same time... What to do, what to do?
Wait for reviews? Both look good in there own regard. Dunno. Seems June is getting pretty packed; inFamous, Prototype, Batman, Red Faction, and more.
You'll have to lock yourself away in a room for a while. Although they haven't announced a specific date for inFAMOUS yet have they? They just said it will be June, will maybe be the end of June imo.
I'd expect late June just so they can get a bit more E3 buzz.
Do the smart thing and get them both. :-)
I'm going for InFamous, just appeals to me more! Prototype just seems a bit wierd for me with all the splitting people apart and transforming and stuff...wierd!
you cant lose, InFamous or Prototype. i have to go with Prototype. it just looks way better.
Well, at least 360 owners don't have to make the choice between these 2 open world games. I don't think I could choose either if I had a PS3.
...so for me Infamous and Batman. I'll get prototype later. $120 for two games if I don't trade anything in isn't horrible but not great either. I'm optimistic all three games Infamous, Batman, and Prototype will be good games.
prototype seems a lot like Hulk, and destroy all humans. Just not my kind of game, but I'll wait for some reviews. edit: Dude Spike47, i didn't mean to copy your statement. I just said what I had in mind, and it matched exactly what you said. I never even looked at your statement before writing mine. my bad.
lol smart move releasing before infamous. Probably gonna get both though but infamous combat + platforming has me sold 100%
Just realize that as a PS3 owner you actually have a choice.
I'll be getting INFAMOUS first. Not only do I like the look of it more, but given such a 'close race' I'll usually tend to lean towards the exclusive as I expect it to be a bit more polished. I'll get PROTOTYPE further down the line, maybe when it's cheaper.
I'm gonna buy Infamous, just because Prototype looks a lot like Destroy All Humans and Hulk Ultimate Destruction which were both fun but got old extremely fast. Infamous has a very nice karma system going on with cleaner graphics. By the way, the ability to change into another person in Prototype is cool, but there is almost no fun reason to use it. EDIT: EXACTLY, NO "FUN REASON" TO USE IT. Unless you are doing missions, there is no reason to use it.
" but there is almost no fun reason to use it." well you dont know that yet do you ?
Somehow, I think it'll be easier to infiltrate a military base if you're disguised as a high ranking officer. There's one use already. I'm sure there's more.
Prototype reminds me of a cross between Terminator 2 and Spawn...I am leaning towards that one
Protype developers made hulk. Infamous developers made the sly cooper series.. Hmmm... Infamous it is.
It just looks better to me.
i get both becuase they both look fun and thats what counts.
What reason could there be to morph into a damn soldier? Wait, don;t you want to blow things up?? when reviews arrive hopefully they will be fair. I see Infamous being a better game.
I guess i will get both on both platforms. inFamous seems to be a must-have while Prototype seems to be average, but it can't be worse than GTA IV in terms of no-fun value. So inFamous on PS3, Prototype on 360.
You can just tell its a rental.
Though infamous has the graphical edge and both infamous and prototype have many gameplay similarities.. what I think sets them apart is prototype has more open world options where are infamous has a mission based structure in open world kinda like gta IV in a good way. rite now prototype has the edge for me.. but I will hopefully get both.
I think I'm gonna go with Infamous before I've even tried any of the games. Not only because I'm ignorant, but also because I'm an insecure PS3 owner who feels forced to choose exclusives over multiplat games. And because I know that the PS3 version won't be up to par with the 360 version, as usual.
So where is your exclusives mister bot ?
lol.Poor little Soda..Did the big bad sony fanboys beat you up again?
stuck in the open zone eh? anyway i think i'm going to with Infamous due to Prototype looking like a next-gen remake of Hulk:UD with poor graphics and shallow gameplay while Infamous sports and interesting multi-layered plot, deeper gameplay and much better visuals yes i have a PS3 and not a 360... does that mean that if i favor an exclusive game over a multiplatform one, purely because it piques my interest more, that i'm a no-life Sony zealot troll? according to Soda it does i guess im just gonna buy mutliplats from now on to gain some respect from Soda, and miss out on the better game from one of my favorite developers (Sucker Punch) generalization is a b!tch ain't it?
It's so easy to get them riled up. I will be enjoying superior versions of Prototype, Fight Night Round 4, Brütal Legend, Borderlands, and all other multiplats you can think of. I'm currently playing Mass Effect & Fallout 3, two games superior to everything released on the PS3. By superior I mean that they are actually fun to play, not just great to look at like some of your overhyped exclusives. And they last much longer as well. All thanks to the power of Blu-Ray lol! But hey, keep polishing that InANUS turd. @JokesOnYou - http://www.gametrailers.com... Que?
well, all i will say is i am looking forward to it. If you have both systems, there is no reason to not own both. if you just own a ps3, you can always get the one that has the best reviews first, and then pick up the other later when its in the bargain bin, nice and cheap ! I think that is what i will do.
a true gamer, and someone on a budget, not the typical "just get them all!" Bubble.
Thank you... and bubble to you for the compliment.
Why not getting both? If you have Resistance 2 you have no reason to buy Killzone 2? If you have Soul Calibur IV you have no reason to buy Street Fighter IV? If you have Pure you have no reason to buy Motorstorm 2? inFamous and Prototype are maybe the same genre and release nearly the same time, you have no reason to avoid one of them, unless you are out of money. In that case you will pick the one that will have the best reviews or the one that makes your heart beats. Otherwise, if you like sandbox games, unless one of them is really lame, you have no reason to get both, otherwise it would be useless to own both systems.
ok, to the dude above... If your directing your comment at what i said, then i think you didn't understand my comment at all. what i said was " there is not reason for a person not to buy both games " they are two different games just in the same genre. some people my not be able to afford both at the same time. so i said you can get one first, then get the other later. i hope that is clear.
It comes out 12th June not the 5th http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
the trailer fro Prototype was awesome so far. And infamous just seems to dull so afr imho. Plus in Prototype you can hurl NPCs at helicopters, nuff said. infamous looks nice but bland in other areas.
As for me, I'm geting the game that makes me want to beat it and explore it.
I'm not gonna judge a game early because it's MULTIPLATFORM. How retarded does that sound? I play games for FUN not because they're an exclusive and I HAVE to like it. Damn fanboyism has reached a new level. I'll be getting inFamous AND Prototype.
Who knew there would be this many games available during the summer? Infamous, Prototype, and Red Faction ... need ...more...cash...
I don't feel either of the 2 games, have had enough coverage to get me sold on them yet... and the lack of coverage also has me worrying about the progress of the games and if they will be rushed last minute... Infamous has had miles of more coverage than Prototype but I still don't think it's enough, I also have a feeling that the lack of coverage for Prototype... should have people that are interested in it, worried. The devs behind the Infamous series also have a better track record than the ones doing Prototype... but I've never been a fan of either dev teams previous releases, maybe with these 2 games that might change. Both games are on my radar, just very low key! Now another Crackdown game... god I need another 1!!!
Europe, JUNE 5TH...AWESOME!
because, well, why NOT? but inFamous looks like it's going to be more fun, and have more depth by far. Prototype looks like a cross between Hulk Ultimate Destruction and Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, which were decent games. inFamous looks like a mix between Sly Cooper and Marvel Comics. those that have played the Sly games know what i mean. the similarities between inFamous' gameplay and Sly Cooper is very obvious. i like the comic book style of inFamous also. i've been waiting for a really good superhero video game, and have been disappointed for decades. the fact that both inFamous and Prototype are hitting in the same month is a win/win for me, because often, the summer months are rather dry for game releases, and i'm sure both games will keep me busy for a while.
Im renting prototype. infamous has way more replayability, I mean good, evil, or both. prototype looks like hulk games where you just kill a lot of people all the time which gets boring. infamous looks better and is defientley a game to go in your gameing collection. prototype looks like your typical rental game. I think infamous will be like spiderman 2 but a lot better and do things spiderman 2 should of done to be epic. why do you think previewers of infamouse like it so much? Its becuase its probley the way above the lvl of the spiderman 2 game or has similaritys.
Smart to have it come out before infamous.
Sweet, out 4 days early in Europe!
all who say they like infamous better than prototype, are just fanboys. like it or not.
