and sucker punch!
is more like it. No status change here in the US yet. *still waiting on Heavenly Sword Sony....*
this already sold a million. i love this game and got my platinum trophy months ago
... insanely off tha chain sequel coming down the pipe line. PS3 gaming ftw, WOOOOT!
If you missed it pick it up. Not if's and's or but's. Another buget priced game for the holiday's from your friends at Sony :)
You deserve them sales and we (the fans) deserve a sequel. ...NOW!!
The cover art is ugly, the yellow border thing is ugly i mean. When you look from the side its all in yellow color with a small title name.
and loved it. Sold it a few months back after I got my plat. Great Great game. Maybe next time they can include some sort of Horde mode coop thing so there's online play. If not, just give me a single player like the first one. Bravo Suckerpunch.
good for Europeans and Japanese people is more like it. No status change here in the US yet. *still waiting on Heavenly Sword Sony....* ---- Should just import it. That's what i do for the vast majority of games that are charged half the price in the US v the rest of the world.
the game is awesome albeit a little easy but it's fun to play! really anticipating a sequel here!
I was very disappointed I didn't pick up this gem when it first released. Once its a Greatest hits title in the states, I'll have to give it a whirl.
Who said this game didn't sell?
inFAMOUS outperforms prototype is every way! it's clearly a better game!
in case ppl don't know, platinum is when games sells 1 million copies. this was Very fast have to say
or at least in America, to reach Greatest Hits status must sell 1 million units and be on the market for at least 9 months
I remeber i use to wait 2-3 years in PS1 and PS2 era for a game to go plat before i buy it when i was still in school. Now its just a couple of months. Might have to reconsider buying a gaming first day or first month but then again i now have a job and its good to support the devs in any case. This is something x360 fans still to this day don't understand. PS games this gen are selling at a much faster rate compare to previous gens.
This is something x360 fans still to this day don't understand. PS games this gen are selling at a much faster rate compare to previous gens LOL @ this statement. What in the world does this have to do with Xbox 360 fans. Infamous is barely platinum and not even close to 2 million. But PS games are selling much faster? Prototype almost had the same exact numbers on the 360 alone. Halo ODST did close to 2 million in 24 hours..should it be in the platinum list a month later? Games go platinum when they are not selling anymore. It's a great bargain for the consumer and bumps the overall game numbers. PS3 games being put on reduced prices this insanely early isnt a compliment to the games success at all. But it sure add incentive to buy Infamous and Killzone 2 (which is also announced to be going that route) if you were on the fence.
X360 fans always b1tch about how PS3 games are selling much more than PS fans care. Fact is PS3 games are selling much faster than PS1 or PS2 games. I understand most x360 gamers are young and most don't understand this yet because most only started gaming this gen or from last gen. This is something you guys must realise by now.
The game is alright bt out of all sony's exclusives this was my least favourite... it should have been brilliant but it was slightly ruined by incredibly repetitive missions. I got the same feeling from this as assassins creed. Once youve done a mission so many times you cant vary it up anymore.
I loved infamous. Actually i liked Infameous gameplay better than U1. Yes some of the missions were repetitive but overall it was still a great game. I read that SP had a hard time just to get it running on the PS3 and since its their first PS3 game i will give them some slack for it. One other thing that really stood out in Infamous for me is the story. I really had no idea about that twist in the end. It really caught me off guard. Amazing story. Edit : Dam Gaffhy. You finished it?. I am about 93% done. The stunt thingy is dam hard to finish as well as the dam blast shards. I have about 5 left to go but i don't know how to get it. I had the game since June and still haven't finished it. Better than U1 though. Had that game since 2007 and only got the plat early this year.
What?!?! inFAMOUS is one of the best PS3 exclusives, and I played the game to 100% completion. Some of the optional missions were a little repetitive, but no way as repetitive at Assassin's Creed.
If you found the missions in Infamous repetitive then I'm sure you feel the same way about GTA series cause they have very similar missions structures. Assasin's Creed really shouldn't even be mentioned. That game is the undisputed poster child for repetitive gameplay.
@cmrbe - Yeah I got the platinum. The hardest stunt, if I remember correctly, is the one where you have to kick someone into the air and attack them in the air? I did that one by attacking a guy that was on the roof and managed to get a hit on him, just before he fell to his death. The blast shards were hard, I found most of them by myself, then I used a walkthrough online (which was incomplete). And found myself having 2 shards left. There's one that you will almost definitely miss, it's on a pier that is broken, you have to jump across broken stands on the water to get to it. There is also another similar one on another island, where the pier doesn't show up on the map I think.
I think its a bug or something. Its one of those side mission where you get a photo of where 5 shards are in the Warren district near the pier with the 4 story building. I fought the dustmen and one spilled the packet with the pic. Unfortunately the pack disappeared after i dispatch of the others and now i can't find that last 5 shards. I tried everything like loading a previous load but still the dustmen never showed up again. I meant to go back and restart from when i got about 300 shards but now i really don't have time to finish it.
Game play in this game was great imo. Sure some of the side missions are basic & repetetive, but that really applies to all games that have followed the GTA series with open world structure of main missions/side missions. GTA, Saints Row 2, Red Faction Guerilla, Prototype...all have repetetive side missions. You don't have to do them though. Overall, I think this game was top notch. One of the best next gen games out there imo.
I'm looking for two shards exactly. I just said screw it and gave up. If you could tell me the districts for those, it would be helpful! Imagine, two shards from platinum. @Cmrbe: Mission shards don't count towards the find total, they only help you upgrade whatever those things are that hold your energy faster. I played a whole playthrough without doing any side missions, just so that I could play them after with all my powers and only came up 5 short(wasn't really searching for them). Keep looking around for the five more blast shards.
The shards to get from missions don't count toward the total .. and yeah i know what i'm talking about i got my platinium on this game ...
More people will be able to buy this amazing game for the holiday at a lower price. I hope a lot more people get to experience this amazing game. If it was not for Uncharted 2, this would have been my game of the year.
Awesome game, well deserved. Can't wait for Infamous 2.
Another Awesome game for PS3 at a low price point this is amazing for sells of sucker punch's InFamous and Sony PS3 also.
but what's up with the stupid yellow?
Reminds me of coldplay. And they were all yellow.
The yellow is for Europe and Japan. Red for US. I hope SCEA doesn't drag their feet on this. They left titles like Uncharted and Ratchet and Clank at full price in the US almost a year longer then Europe...
It really should come with a copy of that song to make up for its hideousness. @above I think they try to squeeze every last bit of selling power it might have before it goes platinum. Maybe they were selling steadier here in the US.
i hate that yellow case... :( it would be difficult for me to buy the platinum version if i could find a non-platinum copy...even with that price reduction!i hope SCEE will change that case!!
grey and yellow are not good colours. The aussie cricket team have been wearin that in the ODIs and 20/20, it's horrible.
Aussie cricket team.
inb4 the bots and their flop comments
inFAMOUS came out when there was hardly any games for ps3 that could be the reason why inFAMOUS sold over a million copy's....i think it was the drought at that time.
and what was out for the 360 Prototype? LMAO
you really do make a fool of yourself everytime you post.
I think your comments are so bad they are hilarious.
....i think most of us on this site wish your dad had a sperm drought to be honest. Whoever breeds people like you dont deserve to breathe. Harsh, yes, but true
It is really a shame that your parent's health plan didn't include abortion.
and your father mated with his sister to have you when there was a drought of non family women around.
I'm playing through it atm, just finished all the missions for the first island. It's a great game with the only off-putting thing for me being the wobbly frame rate, it's just not very consistant and dips up and down quite a bit. Apart from that I'm enjoying it.
It did better over thee then in the USA, it happened with Uncharted 1 also which went Platinum over there. People wondering why it isn't for the NA market, well the game hasn't sold that great here after its great debut.
My god that was fast, makes me feel so stupid buying the game and only completing the good playthrough of the game. I rented Uncharted 2, so with any luck, if I just wait about 3 months, I'll be able to pick it up for twenty quid!
this was an awesome game and has to be a game of the year nominee.if the industry can put a four hour expansion pack on that list then this game should have no problem
1 - Who said ODST is GoTY? 2 - inFAMOUS isn't GoTY material either. GoTY Nominees Modern Warfare 2 Uncharted 2 Forza 3 Left 4 Dead 2 Batman: AA Killzone 2
a few corrections.... 1. MW2 cant be GOTY contender....yet, not without being released or even having a single review 2. agreed 3. i would probably put something else there but im not a racing fan 4. look at number one and if its anything like LFD1 then it doesnt disserve it 5. agreed 6. agreed
This game was overhyped in my opinion. I got to the second Island, got bored, and never played again. I might go back to it one day, though.
me, like alot of other people enjoyed it enough to play through it twice prototype was over hyped in my opinion, i couldnt even finish it
I think people are going a little overboard with the overhype. It's like, if they ever show it at a games conference and somebody says it might be good, the game is overhyped if it isn't the God of all games! Nobody said this game was going to own the world; The most they said was it would own Prototype and the comparisons were almost the grand total of the hype.
Actually, the game slows down a little at the point you were at, but picks up pretty well toward the end of the second island. You get some pretty nice powers then, too. As DaTruth says, the 'hype' came almost entirely from the comparisons with Prototype. InFamous was certainly not a bad game - I enjoyed it enough to platinum it, and had a blast.
Thats cool. So the game hit a million world wide in 2 months and then moved on to sell a million in one region in under 60 months on the Market. thats great. inFamous must have sold at least 2 million world wide now which is great. and the 360 fans say we dont support our devs. we do, we just have varied taste and we buy things as we see fit.
Im glad its going platinum soon, didn't get chance to pick it up when it was first released, almost definitely pick it up now, I enjoyed the demo
good job sony!!! if u want infamous so bad. BUY PS3!!!
this was and still is GOTY!right next to BATMAN.there was not a single play game that you could pick up on any giving time that had the fun factor as these 2 gems!do yourself a favor if you havent played either,ask for them for xmas you wont be sorry.10/10!!!
Nice... I just hope I have enough for this and all the other pre-orders I made. I think... I think I just heard my wallet "cry" lol.
Games like Killzone 2 and Resistance 2 are still $60. Uncharted 1 just became a greatest hits title here.
PS3 games might sell better in regions where there is less competition with 360!
still one of the best i've played this year. overall, 2009 has been the best year of gaming i've had this generation. so many phenomenal games (mostly PS3 exclusives) that have really sold me on what this generation has to offer game wise that simply wasn't possible last generation (it goes beyond graphics too; remember, graphics and gameplay go hand in hand. it's the whole stew, not the individual ingredients that make a game great). looking at how good Sly Cooper 2 was in comparison to Sly Cooper 1, i expect inFAMOUS 2 to absolutely blow inFAMOUS 1 away. just thinking about it gets me all excited. outside of Uncharted, inFAMOUS is one of the most promising new IPs of the generation. Heavenly Sword was promising, but the gaming media murdered it with their biased, unfair and inconsistent reviews (games like God of War, DMC4, Ninja Gaiden, etc, got passes on the things they tore Heavenly Sword apart for). Nariko was a great character. here's hoping that in inFAMOUS 2 they take the time to flesh out Cole and bring him up to par with real gaming greats in terms of characterization. some better supporting characters is a necessity either. i mean, who would Nathan Drake be without Sully or Elena to play off of? Trish and Zeke were awful supporting characters (in more ways that one). interestingly enough, Moya and John were a lot more interesting, so maybe we'll see more of them in part 2 (i won't go into anything more about those two characters because, you know, spoilers). i'd love for inFAMOUS 2 to hit next year, but i expect a 2011 release. 2 years will be plenty of enough time for Sucker Punch to really give it the spit shine. i'm also expecting Insomniac and Naughty Dog to have a hand in helping Sucker Punch optimize their coding, since Sucker Punch have stated on numerous occasions that they view Insomniac and Naughty Dog like big brothers throughout the development of Sly Cooper.
Shame this game didn't get the respect it deserved. It is the gold standard in graphics for open world games. My nephew played GTA4 at my house when I was in the middle of Infamous and that game looked like a PS2 game compared to Infamous. It was like it was hurting my eyes to watch it! I can forgive Red Faction because of everything that game does; But GTA4 is a $100 million game and should have looked much better. And I'm not even a GTA4 hater. I would still be playing that game if there weren't so many games for 2009!
Hopefully this will drop in the US, I really want to pick inFAMOUS up again…yet selling it to begin with was a horrible idea to begin with.
I have recently bought a PS3 slim and bought most of the exclusives with it. I only have UC2 and Infamous to buy soon. Just waiting for the price to cool down.
I think you need to check the charts again because it seems your precious Halo ODST didn't do as well as many were lead to believe! it's just breaking the 1.8 million sold mark! As far as Infamous as well as most ps3 exclusives, it's been shown that they sell better over the course of time.
