inFAMOUS Hitting the Big Screen this Friday – UPDATED!

Asad Qizilbash's Avatar + Posted by Asad Qizilbash on May 18, 2009 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

UPDATE: Get your inFAMOUS questions ready because we just locked down this Wednesday afternoon for a live chat with Sucker Punch! Head back early Wed afternoon for more details.

So with only 8 days left until inFAMOUS hits the stores, I wanted to share with you some quick updates.

Sucker Punch have created a 4-part comic that chronicles the days following that fateful blast that changed Cole’s life forever. Part 1 of 4 is already out, check IGN HERE for the final parts when they’re released.

inFamous comic

Now if any of you are planning to watch Terminator Salvation this weekend, be on the lookout for the inFAMOUS 30-sec commercial that will be running in theaters nationwide from May 22nd to May 28th.

Not long to wait now…but just a reminder that you can get your hands on inFAMOUS before it comes out by playing the official demo that goes live on the PSN this Thursday. Hope you enjoy it.

That’s it for now!

I have been on the fence about this title for a while now. Really happy to see a demo coming out for it. Demo’s really help me decide If I want to purchase a game or not. Hopefully I will enjoy the demo and purchase the game. Hey, I am an optimist!

Thursday? Yes! Will there be a demo for prototype as well? This game is more interesting to me but prototype looks good to.

+ jayrockslife on May 18th, 2009 at 3:09 pm said:

Also. I’m glad the demo is coming out this week. I’m still a bit upset that I didn’t get one of the demo codes when I pre-ordered.. :(
Oh well.. only 10 days :)

The playability of the demo was more than I expected. Collecting 45+ shards in a demo, and playing it for over an hour in one run, is unheard of for a demo.

You definitely sold me on the demo. Great job!

rally looking forward to this. The demo was WAY better than I expected it to be. The open-world free-running merged so well with the combat. Definitely first day buy

The demo is amazing, glad everyone is going to get it this week. It was the demo that fully sold me on picking this up. Can not wait for the release next week.

@5… why would they comment on Prototype?

I played the demo of InFAMOUS… it is awesome and the reviews have been great

I’m SO GLAD sony is finally starting to promote their games correctly……thanks guys! (I think InFamous could be one of your biggest hits ever if you tried hard enough)

I appreciate the Comic page, thank you Asad.

Is inFamous going to have any compatibiliy with PlayStation Home?

+ norm01 on May 18th, 2009 at 3:29 pm said:

Theatre commercials in my opinion are the best way to advertise games. Audiences are preset to receive the message when they are in an immersive mood, especially if you advertise a sci-fi type game for a sci-fi type movie for example. I’ll personally take gaming adverts before a movie over stupid car commercials!

+ jpd1408 on May 18th, 2009 at 3:35 pm said:

I was wondering is the trailer going to be during the movie trailers where the lights go dim? or are they going to be before the movie trailers while pple are going to there seats and such?

Holy crap, I might have to see this new Terminator movie. I was interested in seeing this movie but the Terminator: Salvation commercial just sealed the deal!

+ Firelogic on May 18th, 2009 at 3:42 pm said:

Running 22nd to 28th? But Salvation officially opens on May 21st.

About the european version of the game (posted in the official forum [url=http://www.suckerpunch.com/index.php?option=com_fireboard&Itemid=85&func=view&catid=2&id=1789]here[/url)]
“There are in fact THREE builds covering traditional “Sony Europe” territories…

#1 = English, Portuguese, Russian
#2 = French, Italian, German, Spanish, Dutch
#3 = Polish

We had to do #3 because the OS doesn’t yet support polish.

We split #1 and #2 at Sony’s request. ”

I wanna know if THIS is true

Now that is MARKETING!!!!

Do that for all of your big first-party games!

+ tirminyl on May 18th, 2009 at 3:52 pm said:

Talk about marketing a game. You just hit a slam dunk, now do this with everything else you release.

Demo or no demo, the game will be on my doorstep the 26th!

sweet the demo is downloadable this Thursday…

+ Parapraxis on May 18th, 2009 at 4:12 pm said:

Fantastic!
I suggested doing this with Killzone 2 here on the blog.

So….. where’s my marketing position guys?
I’ve got plenty more ideas!

Picture it:
- inFAMOUS branded cattle prods and electric fences!
- PSAs about not sticking your fingers in sockets starring Cole.
- inFAMOUS brand rechargable batteries (Cole powered batteries anybody?).

The possibilities produced by the gremlins in my head are unLIMITED! =D

+ Edd on May 18th, 2009 at 4:26 pm said:

awesome ad except people in the theater are gonna be like “ohhh my gawd this is awesome” then “exclusively on PS3″ will ring out over the surround sound system then “BOOOOO” fromt he crowd lol. It is inevitable i only hope somebody can smuggle in a recording device lol.

thanks for the wonderful advise!! ;D

+ Edd on May 18th, 2009 at 4:43 pm said:

@47 lol sweet. I don’t think too many people deny that ps3′s got the games nowadays its just a lot of people can’t afford one *cough*hint*cough* lol but i understand why sony hasn’t dropped the price the system is definitely worth it (more than worth it technically), and people recognize that, it’s just a matter of not being ABLE to buy it rather than willing… but they’re welcome to continue being envious of those of us who DO have one and can play an awesome game like infamous XP
