inFAMOUS Goes Gold!

Brian Fleming's Avatar Posted by on Apr 16, 2009 // Sucker Punch Productions

inFamous Pack Front final

3+ years, 60+ people, insane amounts of caffeinated beverages, and 70,000+ individual checkins of code, art, and media, and what do you get? A gold disc for inFAMOUS! We got the news late yesterday (just in time for the team to run off and tip a few back!) and I’m not sure it’s really sank in for me yet. But it’s official, and somewhere I hope they’re stamping out your copy of inFAMOUS right as you read this!

It’s a tradition here to bust out old builds and videos of the game and laugh at ourselves for how *crappy* the game was 2 years ago. It’s a strange combination of humiliation at how we ever showed those builds to people, appreciation to Sony for believing in us even when the game was so provably terrible, and sense of accomplishment at how far we were able to come, especially in the last 6-12 months. Plus it’s just plain hilarious to see some of our really BAD ideas on-screen.

But that’s the journey of making video games. We’re proud of what we accomplished getting to here, but the point of it all was to make something for you guys to enjoy — and we’re hopeful that you will drop us a note and let us know what you think after you’ve beaten the game! Enjoy the ride and thanks so much for all your support!

EDITOR’S NOTE: If you want to know what the last few weeks were like for Brian and the Sucker Punch team, look out for the Road To Gold dev diary releasing in May.

i would like to know more. i have fallen out of open world game and im looking for a good one but different to gta.. i think gta has been done.. we need something different like alliens or something.
i have been hearing a bit about infamous but only like… oh infamous is comming out or infamous releasing early. i haven’t heard of stuff like.. what you actually do… i want a developer interview please. im still wondering weather this is a AAA title or just AA. theres so many good sony games coming out i only have enough cash for the AAA ones…and psn games


+ themacstewie on April 17th, 2009 at 1:09 am said:

I’ll await the reviews :P

Day 1 purchase.



+ digitalpowershot on April 17th, 2009 at 3:59 am said:

Don’t make the same mistake and start to market your games SONY! Killzone2 needs more marketing (worldwide only over 1mIllion copies after 2,5months?)! inFamous needs much more marketing!

…and bring inFamous to Europe in May too! one copy will be mine!


+ BlazednSleepy on April 17th, 2009 at 4:11 am said:

omg..i cannot freakin wait!!!!!


+ EmperorKorea on April 17th, 2009 at 4:15 am said:

hopefully this will sell well. PS3 games never sell in the US.


+ MOMBYK on April 17th, 2009 at 4:18 am said:

As long as it is from Sucker Punch, it is bound to be good.


+ crazykiller666 on April 17th, 2009 at 4:20 am said:

+ pecorre on April 17th, 2009 at 4:39 am said:

I want to see those awfull videos too! I hope the game will include a making of.


+ MightyB69 on April 17th, 2009 at 4:44 am said:

hmm.. have seen a lot of video from the game and read a lot of info and I still don’t really understand what the game is about? I hope it will do well.. the developers are a good company and I hope they already are working on a new Sly game for my son. It is his favorite game series.


+ r-nice on April 17th, 2009 at 4:50 am said:

I will be getting this game when it comes out.


+ Septimus on April 17th, 2009 at 5:43 am said:

Can we get to see some of the old videos/making of stuff as an unlock or something in the game?


+ marcindpol on April 17th, 2009 at 5:52 am said:

+ scorpio182 on April 17th, 2009 at 8:31 am said:

Only until recently am i interested in this game which is a good thing.

Is a demo in the works?

Congrats to the guys at Sucker Punch…


+ LordRaoh on April 17th, 2009 at 10:02 am said:

Can’t wait for the game. Glad its coming out sooner than expected.

But here is hoping sony actually markets this game unlike Killzone 2. I have a co worker who hadnt even heard of killzone 2 until today. He doesnt go to gaming websites so if it wasnt for people like me he would never know about half the games sony releases.

I hope sony isnt actually paying someone a salary to handle its marketing.


+ SuperSonic1305 on April 17th, 2009 at 10:49 am said:

We appreciate it Sucker Punch. Just out of curiosity, do you have any plans for a new Sly Cooper game? Me and many others love those games.
