Infamous developer Sucker Punch has implemented a feature where players who have unlocked certain trophies in Infamous can get a head start in Infamous 2.
Does anyone know if the PSN version of inFamous stores data in the 'Game Data Utility' folder, like the disc version? Thanks.
I'm downloading it now, I will let you know mate.
Works perfectly fine for me. There is a patch out for the game btw, maybe you need to download that.
It works with the downloadable Infamous 1 ;).
Mine didn't. Was there ever a patch or anything for inFamous 1? I have my game saves but inFamous doesn't see them... really sucks.
The downloadable game doesn't read the disc save data :( I was going to play through my old saved data with the downloadable version and it made me start from the beginning of the game. When I pop my disc in it reads the save data. Hopefully they'll have the time to fix this now with a patch.
why people care about trophy things,i really dont understand ?
Why people care to smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol, steal, lie excessively, I really don't understand. What I do understand is that everyone is different, people enjoy different things. If it's not for you, it's for someone else.
Dude Trophies are fun and cool, I didn't care about them either but it's so satisfying to get one.
Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?
the infamous save data is stored under my "saved data utility (PS3)" folder. my "game data utility" folder only has game updates and game installs in it, none from infamous since I have the DL version. All my game saves are under the "saved data utility(PS3)" folder. The actual game is saved in its own folder at the bottom like demos are. hope that helps you.
now i got it on digital and the saved data was intact.
This really sucks, I had my Fat PS3 die on me without being able to recover any of the data on my HDD. I had to reformat it to install it in my Slim PS3 so I lost every game data file that wasn't saved on Cloud....inFamous was one of them. Ugh, not fair. Please Sucker Punch, come up with a patch soon! I have Platinum I swear!
All you get is you start off being either a little bit more good or a little bit more evil depending on your save data. Nothing really that big. And some other which I can't remember but I remember thinking they were nothing special
it has nothing to do with save data its your trophies. i wonder what karma it gives if you have all the trophies i guess ill find out later when i put it on.
Agreed, I noticed that it didn't work for me but I didn't really care, it just gives you a slight boost at the beginning of the game.
Aye, it's like that Uncharted 2 implementation. You start off w/ a few extra grands. It's a nice addition, but it won't matter as you play on.
It's more that that. Some of the sidequests will also be based on choice that you made in inFamous 1, and some of the dead drops will also mention specific things you did.
-EvoAnubis-...I hadn't heard that. Where's your source on that one?
@bea Check articles on infamous 2. Anubis is right. I know for sure joystiq said something about dialogue changing.
Eh, either way it's not like Mass Effect so I'm sure I'll get by. Will probably keep my save data this time though.
My source on that is having beat the game twice and being on my third playthough right now.
I'm both curious and put-off by this.
I don't think it has anything to do with trophy data. It simply imports previous save data. So of course you need the previous save data in order to import it. Whenever I started the game it showed me my list of available files to import and the bonuses I would unlock with each.
This article is referring to the "Game" data, not save data. So, according to this article, if you deleted your inFamous install from you PS3's HDD, then apparently you won't be able to access the bonuses related to unlocked inFamous trophies, not previous save data. But yes, having the save data will also unlock bonuses for you.
its only trophy data. If you have full infamous karma in InFamous you can get 1 full bad karma level for InFamous 2 from the get go and vice versa with good karma.
Article is totally false. It goes by your trophies from the first game. I deleted my saved and game data forever ago. I still was able to get the little bonuses.
Read the article properly. It doesn't say save data but it says game data. If you don't have Infamous game data installed on the hard disk the extra's won't show up even if you have the trophies. Happened to me.
Read his comment properly, he said "I deleted my saved and GAME data forever ago" It still worked for him. Maybe their are some kinks that need to be worked out.
The game is amazing, with or without the bonuses.
Bonuses are kind of eh anyway, yeah, you get 1000xp, but I currently have 7000xp in the game that I haven't used yet, it's pretty easy to build up XP quickly. There's other stuff obviously, but again, I dunno that you're missing anything by not having it.
it's still great i enjoyed the extra voices and the xp bonus early on ..
My PS3 got the red screen of death last year and so my Infamous 1 save data is gone..
Well, thats why we have cloud saves now...
You don't need save data. If you still have Infamous just install it and it will recognise the trophies then.
I have the data but I have already started the game. Does it automatically apply at the beginning or can I load up a save and it will work?
Ok! I thought throphy data was embedded/linked (in)to the save data. thanks.
I used to have the disc version of inFAMOUS, then I gifted it to a friend. I downloaded the free inFAMOUS from the Welcome Back program, loaded the game up using my disc i1 save (Good Karma playthrough, not 100% complete: sadly, I lost my 100% Good/Evil playthrough when my PS3 died), and it loaded up fine. I played an Evil playthrough on i1, but I didn't beat it (i'm about 20 missions in). I loaded up inFAMOUS 2, and it asked me if I wanted to start with Good, Neutral, or Bad karma. I chose my Good Playthrough, and got the XP bonus perk, the blast shard bonus perk, and the level 1 good karma perk. Still not sure if it's using Trophy Data, but it very well could be. I'll know for sure when I start my i2 evil playthrough, since I didn't do much of anything in that one besides blasting through the story.
I didn't have any save data or game data from i1 on my hard drive and it still worked.. it goes by the trophies.. not data stored or save data.
Didn't work unless I had the game data installed.
This is a very odd, situation. I think it's basically working differently for everyone.
anyone else's install corrupt after 14percent? i've downloaded the blasted thing 5 times now (on 6th attempt) and it still corrupts! what the hell is going on?
If you keep getting corrupt installs with your games and updates your hard drive may very well be on its last legs. First indication of this: When you turn on your PS3 does it ask you to rebuild the file database? Yes: Your hard drive is going, Backup what you can and replace it. No: Your download got corrupted. If this happens often troubleshoot your home network (cable/dsl modem, routers, switches, network cables, etc.) and/or contact your ISP about your quality of service.
my ps3 is only a few months old, so i dont think its the hard drive. i do admittedly have a really poor connection, i think it may be that. with the massive download size my connection probably times out. but i was able to download little big planet with no problem. im pulling my hair out. thanks
Seem the corruption has made it to the source website...can't even open that now either. What is the general feeling on this? I am picking up IF2 today and want to be prepared!
Everything worked well for me. I'm only a couple missions in, on hard, and I'm loving it so far. More infamous in a prettier package. :)
