Thanks for the heads up! The game is looking good but from the videos it feels like it NEEDS MORE polishing. Keep it up guys!

Hmm, I was very iffy, but im starting to be a bit more reassured. Though there is still the concern that it might become too repetitive. You guys are either doing a great job at being secretive or there are very little powers to chose from. Time will tell I suppose :/

Nice. If you guys have any pull with the Mods on the Playstation forum, can you encourage them to make an inFamous section?

+ nuness1988 on March 23rd, 2009 at 9:55 am said:

I think it’s impossible to look at that picture and NOT thing Star Wars. Looks awesome and I can’t wait for the demo. BUT DON’T MAKE ME PRE-ORDER AT GAMESTOP!

+ iExile on March 23rd, 2009 at 10:18 am said:

According to IGN, “InFamous is f’n awesome.”

Well, after reading their previews, seeing the screenshots and watching the videos I’ve gotta agree. My god this game looks amazing.

Will there be costume customizations in game?
When he’s evil can you give him a Dearth Vader costume? When he’s good can you give him a Yoda costume?

+ lowhonor on March 23rd, 2009 at 10:22 am said:

evil way looks like the good way to play to me…nice to see red lightning too, much better looking than the blue

+ BigBoss712 on March 23rd, 2009 at 10:28 am said:

Real nice, looks like the next game worth getting.

+ lakaiHIGH on March 23rd, 2009 at 10:47 am said:

so sick! i remember the very first trailer for this game saying that Cole has the power to either save the city or destroy it. i hope we have alternate endings for the game played out by the decisions you make during the game. ima go read that article now!

thanks,
Lh

+ DonnyG on March 23rd, 2009 at 10:56 am said:

This went from meh way back when it was first revealed, to moderate hype a few months ago. After the last few weeks of PS Blog posts and now this IGN article it’s a must buy for me. I’ll pre-order this week.

+ mixedkidbx on March 23rd, 2009 at 11:06 am said:

+ EvoAnubis on March 23rd, 2009 at 11:12 am said:

Better late than never. This game is looking better and better everytime I see something from it.

InFAMOUS + Star Wars = Epic Sci-Fi action/adv. YOU HAVE EVER SEEN/PLAYED

Is he the long lost brother of Gozer? Can he also pull a Mr Stay puft. Seriously, this games looks more and more awesome.

+ DeathGazer on March 23rd, 2009 at 11:39 am said:

I am so stoked for this game!!!

The karma system looks fantastic. I wish more open-world games had this kind of concept.

+ shaksnet on March 23rd, 2009 at 11:42 am said:

This is a good effort, but not enough. I mean, what’s so ‘dark’ about him? His eyes should be more scary, like red lights, or something that would truly make it fun exploring that side of the game. Don’t just paint him with dark colors and no smile. Maybe his powers should change too, like weirder stuff with different colored lightning, if he turns to the dark side. Just one of many suggestions which i hope will be implemented in this game.
To be frank, i have bought and played and completed all the PS3 exclusives and i reeeeally want to see InFamous make it to the top as another excellent PS3 exclusive. Prototype and other almost similar games coming up later this year, so very hopefully, if InFamous is done right, it should hold up against anything close to its genre or style of gameplay.

For some reason this game looks really horrible to me, I love sucker punch studios, I don’t know what it is. I’ll obviously be open minded and wait for the demo, :).

+ katsuo7171 on March 23rd, 2009 at 1:25 pm said:

@4 Jeff can’t do anything about that, they do not have accounts on the forums because they only deal with the blog.

OP- This vidoe really changed my impression about the game before I thought it was all black and white with all the prebious gameplay they showed but now after seeing color it looks kinda good, it warrants a rent at the momment. It might be a buy if I see something better.
