Greg Phillips's Avatar Posted by on Mar 06, 2009 // Senior Producer, SIE

We know many of you have been wondering when urban hero Cole McGrath and his electrifying arsenal of superpowers is coming to a town near you. Well, we want to share with you today that inFamous will be launching worldwide this June, and here’s a first look at the front-of-box for the title:

inFamous Pack Front final

Another question many of you have been asking is: will there be a demo? And, the answer is yes. We’ll have more details on when and how the demo will be available shortly. Stay tuned for a new trailer next week as well of loads of other inFamous goodies from the Sucker Punch crew this month…

Wow! Great boxart! I’m being honest when I say this is one of if not the best boxarts this generation. I think this is better than even Killzone 2’s!

Mabye I’m just a fan of electricity.

This is a must-buy this year for me as was Killzone 2. Thanks, Sony. First time I’ve loved your console.

Its a must buy for me.


+ Trystano on March 6th, 2009 at 1:43 pm said:

Seriously, that is one of the best Box art yet!

[ ] ignore this one
[ ] buy a xbox360
[x] saving money for InFamous
[ ] buy a random third party title …

Please, for the love of God, don’t make the demo a Gamestop/Qore exclusive.


+ Striker725 on March 6th, 2009 at 1:52 pm said:

This is great…I can’t wait to play this game.


+ ILOVEPLASTATION3 on March 6th, 2009 at 1:53 pm said:

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! :)


+ Erniejpan on March 6th, 2009 at 1:54 pm said:

Wow, one of the best box art ive seen.


+ chriscowboyd on March 6th, 2009 at 1:55 pm said:

Hopefully this game will have custom soundtracks. Will it?


+ Lagspike_exe on March 6th, 2009 at 1:55 pm said:

Awful box art, but the game itself will be mine day 1.


+ InsomniDog13 on March 6th, 2009 at 2:07 pm said:

wow, great cover.
inFamous is gonna be awesome, June release, right in time for my birthday, also Demo will be epic, just please dont make it a Qore exclusive, let us all download it (who can)


+ stlthriot on March 6th, 2009 at 2:10 pm said:

The way he mentioned “how the demo will be available” makes me hope you don’t have to do anything like you did with getting a code in Home (similar to Killzone).

The game looks amazing and I only worry that the storyline gameplay will be too short.


+ Zezzler on March 6th, 2009 at 2:10 pm said:

Awwww Man! there is no PlayStation Network banner on it. that means that it is in no way shape or form compatable with the PSN? PLEASE change it, leaderboards, in-game browser, ANYTHING. the box just isnt the same without it.


+ Darkos87 on March 6th, 2009 at 2:14 pm said:

I am going to argue against having a demo, based on my experience with previous demos. namely:

burnout paradise demo: great game, open world like infamous, but only 2-3 events to participate, in no way a representation of the game itself. Glad I bought it, even though I hated the demo.

Motorstorm Pacific Rift: again, great game, but awful demo, shoddy graphics.

Killzone 2: I’m glad the 1st level featured in the demo was the weakest level of them all in the final game.

So be careful when making a demo infamous devs, I’m jolly excited about the game, don’t screw it up.


+ KatanaStrikes on March 6th, 2009 at 2:15 pm said:

Hope we get a better cover than that in the UK. But great to get a date and look forward to the demo.


+ Zezzler on March 6th, 2009 at 2:25 pm said:

Quick Questions,
-In-Game Music?
-Home integration/teaming up?
-any other interesting facts?


+ NeonReaver on March 6th, 2009 at 2:33 pm said:

Good call on making a demo, because I’m going to need one before I make any final decisions about this game. I want to like it, but there are things that are holding me back from being 100 percent interested in it.


+ ADR143 on March 6th, 2009 at 2:36 pm said:

yay! im going to pick this up first thing when it comes out!!!!!!

any1 know if this game will support online?

man cant w8 for the demo and the real game!


+ hife on March 6th, 2009 at 2:39 pm said:

Aw, not soon enough! I’m super-excited for this game, and that box art is terrific.


+ nas2344 on March 6th, 2009 at 2:41 pm said:

that boxart looks sooo sick, awesome job on it!


+ MaceWisdom on March 6th, 2009 at 2:45 pm said:

Excellent job. IMO it’s one of the best PS3 covers.


+ Heavenly_king on March 6th, 2009 at 2:52 pm said:

According to the box-art, in the game there wont be any use for the PSN. I was hoping for some leaderboards, dlc and maybe home support :(


+ BigBoss712 on March 6th, 2009 at 2:55 pm said:

Like the box cover, definitely want to see more of this game, can’t wait for the demo.


+ easyaspie00 on March 6th, 2009 at 2:56 pm said:

Cool beans!!!!!

The Sly Cooper series was one of my favorites on the Playstation 2, and I have been tracking this game since when I first heard about it back in ’07, great to see it’s finally coming to the Playstation 3!!


+ PullusPardusUS on March 6th, 2009 at 2:59 pm said:

so the US version’s suit is yellow and the UK version is Blue? cool i guess =]


+ SU_37_FLANKER on March 6th, 2009 at 3:00 pm said:

cool can’t wait!


+ gamestopper09 on March 6th, 2009 at 3:07 pm said:

Box art looks great. Can’t wait!


+ EmperorKorea on March 6th, 2009 at 3:16 pm said:

made from the sly cooper developers? SOLD.


+ jipmg on March 6th, 2009 at 3:22 pm said:

+ Cicoreis on March 6th, 2009 at 3:34 pm said:

Awesome box art… Looks like a very fun game; can’t wait!!!


+ SpyDudeFX on March 6th, 2009 at 3:41 pm said:

Game looks amazing, I can not wait for this. Wow June? Feels so far away but great news.


+ robertf224 on March 6th, 2009 at 3:45 pm said:

psyched for this game.


+ Dehshizknight on March 6th, 2009 at 3:46 pm said:

Can’t wait till this comes out!!!


+ Neil on March 6th, 2009 at 3:47 pm said:

About the box art; I would like to know why the decision was made not to use the current inFamous artwork where Cole is hovering above the ground in an electrified “T-Pose”.


+ Wraith2021 on March 6th, 2009 at 4:01 pm said:



+ Jaresk on March 6th, 2009 at 4:06 pm said:

Gee, I sure hope this game will actually come out were I live in June. I waited almost a week for Killzone 2. :( Sure it’s not that long but I had nothing else to do. Plus it’s a pretty rad game. :D


+ hobb123 on March 6th, 2009 at 4:07 pm said:

is the demo going be free on psn store or will have to pre-order game frist.

For the guy who did not like it because did not have online play grow up not all superheros games should have online play sometimes it better if it don’t have it.


+ Jeigh on March 6th, 2009 at 4:10 pm said:

“How” ?? -_-

I WILL NOT pre-order a game for a demo, and I’ll make that clear right here, right now. Don’t get me wrong, I WILL be getting the game, but I won’t preorder just to get an early taste of it, just out of principle. The whole point of a demo is to give a taste to those who are unsure.


+ NEJI64 on March 6th, 2009 at 4:13 pm said:

must buy for me….. and to all the idiots mad about Qore subscribers may get one or two demos before others cut the crap. what would y’all say if the demo came in stores with a gamepro magazine? nothing y’all would go ask mommy for 5 or 10 bucks and go pick it up.


+ lebron_accel on March 6th, 2009 at 4:14 pm said:

The Box Art is so WIcked!!!


+ blindrocket on March 6th, 2009 at 4:17 pm said:


Yet another AAA Sony game! :)


+ Carnivius_Prime on March 6th, 2009 at 4:20 pm said:

Looks interesting. Will definitely try out the demo before deciding if it’s gonna be one of my big PS3 buys for the year along with God of War III and my most wanted Uncharted 2.


+ DrBingogh on March 6th, 2009 at 4:25 pm said:

Yes, yes, yes. Commence anticipation of June now…


+ waffman11 on March 6th, 2009 at 4:38 pm said:

I’m not sure about this game yet, so i’ll try the demo. I might just rent it if the demo is bad, Sly Cooper series would be enough proof that Sucker Punch can make great games, though.


+ waffman11 on March 6th, 2009 at 4:41 pm said:

Hey, doesn’t Cole look a little like the Apprentice from the Force Unleashed?


+ susuFOX on March 6th, 2009 at 4:51 pm said:

Already preorder my copy…
Also look the artwork reveals that there wouldn’t be any online mode (no PSN logo)…


+ ANK52 on March 6th, 2009 at 4:55 pm said:

Looks awesome, can’t wait to try the demo!


+ cell989 on March 6th, 2009 at 5:02 pm said:

This is one game I’ll be picking up right about when Im exhausted of Kill zone 2.


+ banyan007 on March 6th, 2009 at 5:10 pm said:

i can’t wait
