One lucky gamer has managed to get his hands on an inFamous 2 retail copy.
I hope he wont leak it to torrents ¬_¬
don't the games that are released have an updated firmware preventing that?
Yup, expect this one to be no difference. LA Noir had it (though recent update changed that), Portal 2, and expect this one to be no different.
there are ways to get around updates they put on the disc though. I mean, just look at PSP Games...
In the UK many retail stores get dummy boxes 2-3 weeks before the release of a game. The boxes are obviously empty, but they help stimulate interest as customers come over pick them up and hopefully pre-order. The picture of the 'leak' does not include a shot of the actual game disc, or a video with unseen footage, eg a play through of the first level. It's just a pic of the front cover that was previously available on the blog. No need to worry as it's only 3 weeks until the full game is out!
This is the American version
@above Gamestop does the same thing...Walk into one and look at their Pre-order area. Most of them will be actual game cases, or Gamestop cases, with the cover art in them. However they will be completely empty. If you know the people, they will let you have one without a problem.
I do agree with you, but at the same time it has the sticker on the case for the uncharted 3 beta. Display cases dont usually have those sort of stickers on them? Unless it's a graphic that is actually on the cover of the game itself?
@SpaceSquirell It is definitly a Canadian version...
@Oxymoron028 It probably is on the cover itself and not a sticker. A quick look and Socom 4's Resistance beta early access and a premiere pack thing for MS:A were both on the cover and not stickers.
i remember when before gran turismo came out the gamestop and best buy up the street had the boxes and I asked them and they said .. "these are just cases" i was like can I give you $10 for the case lol bastard couldve sold it to me :( but who knows showing a case dont prove anything let me know when he or she ( judging by the feminine hands << Joke ) post pics of the Blu
Ummmm, has InFamous 2 even gone gold yet?? If not then this is fake.
It has gone gold. http://twitter.com/#!/Sucke...
Its coming out in like two weeks. Of course it went gold.
It went gold on the 20th and this guy has a full retail copy? That's the fastest production, shipment and sale ever. /s
Meh who cares?? I always get my games before launch day its not hard if you know the right avenues (and no I don't mean piracy I buy my games)
don't leak this to torrents can't wait like day before e3 and than duke nukeum a few days later time to chew some bubble gum and bring our women back from aliens
We gonna faaaind you We Gonna faaaind you..:P
Who cares about edits? Pic is fake either way.
Thank you phantom disagree.
Well he is one lucky guy, june 7 is still a long time away.
You know, I could print out cover art too.
leak and breaking street date are two different things
gieffff and about torent leak,yeah he can,but if you wanna play infamous 2 you need latest firmware,and i don't think hackers hacked last one so....
Chances are this is the UAE, where I currently live. Gonna check out the game shops tomorrow :D
Unless SP is stupid enough to release patch before release it means nothing to pirates. But beware spoilers!!!
that's not a leak, that's a broken street date -__-"
Like SoundGamer said, I can print the cover, insert it in a empty case, take a picture of it and put it on teh web.
It would have been more believable if the person showed a disc as well since the case is obviously not sealed.
But the game has only gone gold 3 days ago, how is this possible? Anyway, if this is true, it's the Canadian version since both English and French are found on the cover.
It pisses me off when people get a game early. I think games need to have some type of code that will keep you from playing the game. You will get to play when the code gets activated on release day.
Well, game reviewers sometimes get retail versions to review from the publisher. So... :/
What about those who do not have internet? I was poor a few months ago and had to shut it off to pay some other bills. If this game game out then and I ran home to play it only to be told I had to have a firmware update I would have been PISSED.
When I got my ps3 the two games I picked up had the necessary updates on the disc.
@Quod. They do. What I understood him to say was a code needs to be released on game day that "unlocks" the game as to prevent people from playing early. I cannot see any other way to do that except through PSN. I doubt they can embed a code in the game that has a built in clock, lol.
Shut off internet but buy a 60 dollar game?
[email protected] Lol, I feel like it's the grand inquisition! My point is if someone received this game, whether though purchase or say a birthday present, or graduation gift or traded in some old games for it and went home to play and was not able to because they did not have the internet, that would suck.
@BeOneWithTheGun They could actually.It would just use the internal clock the software is possible.Just think of it this way,until the release date is hit by the internal clock it would lock the game like its Feb 29.
@Dark: What if you reset your internal clock ahead on the unit? It would then think it was the release date?
Yea good luck with that.Not something that can easily be done.The internal clock is not something your gonna set forward,backwards sure.
Boo hoo someone got something before you. It's not that big of a deal.
Dude chill out. Theres no need to be jealous about this. We will all get to play it come release. This person got lucky so good for them but theres no need to hate on them for it.
Yeah, try being an EU or even Australian gamer and watch as the whole rest of World plays a game while you wait and wait. In Aus's case often forever cos their ratings board regularly shaft them and won't release!
Must have won it from a contest, because I remember one that offer getting the game before it comes out.
You're talking about Subway and they're in no rush to actually pull that off. Me and the others who won that contest will most likely get it on the 2nd and at the latest the 6th. They only need to beat the release date by mins to meet the statement.
If I remember Sony was doing one to, in less this person took it from a shipment. Its more likely they won it. Are dumb Wal-Mart had Playstation Move games for sale about half a month before it was so post to come out.
I also won a copy of this game from the subway sweepstakes. Did they ever send you a confirmation email. All I got was a confirmation number when I won it but nothing ever came via email.
Yeah I got one.
Lucky guy. Not sure how this is a leak though but watevs.
How about a picture of the disc? And game running? Empty pre-order box, huh?
... lucky b*stard...
as long as he doesn't leak it to torrents or something, I'm just jealous of him, so lucky
Good for him. I hope he enjoys this game!
Whenever I see this kind of stuff. I always think big deal. Good for him. No care was given this day.
Picture of the disc or it's fake.
At least it is a legit copy and not a pirate version, looks like some vendors don't care for release time tables.
mmm. no vendors will get the actual disc 3 days after going gold. they are still in the process of making all the disc, cases, and cover. I work at target and we usually get a new game maybe 10 days tops if we are lucky before release. although I imagine at game shops it might be earlier and we only get a few copies but still.
I am not jealous of him. I still have to play through the first infamous. I will get to play through the solo campaign fresh on the 6th or 7th of june and the anticipation will make it even better. Hopefully, if he does in fact have the game, he will start building some cool levels/missions for us to play when iNfamous 2 releases. Hey, anyone know when the Playstation Store will be back online? I really want to download Wipeout HD and iNfamous.
Speaking of PS store - I've heard that you get 30 days within which to redeem your free games. So has that period started already, or does it only begin when the PS store is back up and running I'm getting wipeout and dead nation
If you already have PS+, you will be given 60 days. The free PS3 games that you choose to download from the welcome back package (InFAMOUS, Dead Nation etc.) are yours to keep forever. Any avatars, themes and other items of that nature that you download from PS+ are yours to keep forever. Free games that you download with your 30/60 day PS+ subscription will be unplayable after your PS+ subscription expires, this has always been the case. Hope that cleared things up for you pal.
That Uncharted 3 beta advert better not be places there! I hate when they put crap on the font box art!
Hmmm......wonder if my local gaming store(Not Gamestop) has it......????
Game will flop anyway not it the fan sense just the fiscal sense not many sales.
Not sure what you consider a flop, Infamous 1 sold 2 million units, which is considered a success. If you mean that this game won't sell as much as it should, you are definitely right. The majority of mainstream 'gamers' aren't the smartest when it comes to purchasing quality titles. Just take one good look at the success of COD
Sorry thats pretty much what i meant i didnt like the first game at all but i very surprised it sold that much, i kind of meant for the companies viability not selling many copies must be almost a death nail on the investor side of things gfc and all but if they do those numbers again it should cement the franchise as a 360 pc player doesnt mean i want to see any game fail.
I don't know if this is a poor attempt at trolling, or just an idiot. I will of course assume the latter though... Infamous 2 will most likely be a LARGER success than Infamous because Sony is offering a free copy of Infamous via the welcome back program. Due to its higher price tag and serious buzz there will be a large number of people giving it a go. Now I am not saying they will be day 1 buyers, but I am saying they will give it the time of day.
This has to be from a Gamestop employee. A friend of mine that works there gets to play them early. He had Killzone 3 like a week before launch.
whaat and am still waiting for the psn store to be back so i could activate the beta code
