Wilson Cheng's Avatar + Posted by Wilson Cheng on Jun 04, 2010 // Product Marketing Manager, SCEA

Hey Guys – you may have seen the new inFAMOUS 2 cover on gameinformer.com.

gi-infamous2-cover

I’m very excited to officially announce that Cole MacGrath will be returning exclusively to the PS3. This issue will give the very first details of the game and how Sucker Punch has improved every aspect of it. You’ll learn about the new city, new powers and new gameplay. It should be hitting news stands in the next week.

Look for more inFAMOUS 2 news at E3.

After all these announcements the only things left for E3 would be PS Move, (woohoo -_-) PS Premium, (yippee -_-) and of course Twisted Metal. C’mon, we all know they’re workin on it. Just waitin for the announcement now, which they’re probably saving for E3.

with all these announcements before E3- I gotta say, you guys better blow people away. you guys better show us a game other than KZ3, LBP2, Infamous 2, Agent, that will blow our socks off.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not use Nolan North for the male voiceover, it was extremely refreshing not to hear Nathan drake or the prince of persia or assassins creed 2 or dark void etc (get the picture) as Cole’s voice over.

Sorry bout the double post but seriously, did nobody think that Twisted Metal might be getting saved for E3?!

Great news.
What’s up with Cole’s look? and why did the voice actor was changed?


209

+ VictoryEagle on June 5th, 2010 at 11:04 am said:

Oh, my god. Maybe they’re saving something like an actually good Crash Bandicoot ever since PSX, or a new MotorStorm… there’s gotta be something HUGE going on in SCEA if they’re releasing this sweet candy already.

yeah great news until i saw not cole’s face. Seriously sucker punch get it together, you can change the guys voice but not his body,face, voice yet not his name? Please just put cole back to how he looked or at least similar.. Also, ask naughty dog for some inspiration cause the graphics on that game were epic. – Reasoning your last game(which i loved + completed several times), the characters had plasticine hair XD

infamous is one of the most tedious and repetitive games I have ever played. they better be making HUGE improvements on the sequel.

+ MadeInScotland on June 5th, 2010 at 11:20 am said:

OMFG!!!!!!!!! :D

Now all I need is something about Grand Theft Auto V and…..

To all those complaining about nothing at E3: AGENT.

Btw that looks alot like New Orleans…..

+ jjmusicman on June 5th, 2010 at 2:18 pm said:

Why don’t you people use your heads for once and keep the judgments clean until you find out just why Cole looks like that?

First SOCOM 4, then LBP 2, then Killzone 2 and now inFamous 2. Not to say I’m not happy to see these announcements but I’ve got to wonder what Sony has left to show for E3?! And don’t tell me it’s Resistance 3 coz we all know it’s coming and might as well be revealed next week in some local newspaper for all I care. I just really hope that Sony doesn’t disappoint me at this E3. I am expecting some massive surprises. But if they just push Move with a bunch of cr@p-a$$ mini-games and hope that will do, they will lose miserably.

That said, I’m very, very excited to see inFamous 2. Well we already knew the game was coming. inFamous was easily one of my top 5 games of 2009 and I can’t wait to see what new stuff the sequel will bring. Not sure if I like the way Cole, if that’s even him, looks in that GI cover but to be honest I wasn’t really that big a fan of Cole’s original appearance anyway. I just hope this game has better lip movement during cutscenes than the first game did. Hope Sony will still show off a trailer for the game at E3.

#tansce- you’re crazy,infamous is awesome and has a lot of diversity.

+ Midgetguy on June 5th, 2010 at 7:23 pm said:

Infamous was fun, but I really REALLY hope that they improve the storytelling elements for the sequel… The only part of the story that I truly found intriguing and that I thought was done pretty well (for the first one) was the first 15 minutes or so of gameplay. The atmosphere, the introduction of the characters, it was all done so well… but then, it all kind of stopped and dipped into the “boring/uninspired/cliche” group…

=/

I know that most open-world games aren’t very cinematic or story-based, but maybe InFamous 2 could be a first?

Bloodycow you really need to stop nickpicking about every little thing that sony does, Secondly if don’t like the ps move then don’t buy it.

Infamous!

I only played the original at a friends house. Was awesome though… So, I haven’t really played it, but I’m still excited about the sequel!


226

+ tbone547 on June 6th, 2010 at 2:26 am said:

Really liked the first game, definitely going to be keeping an eye on this. Although I do really hope that the final character model looks more interesting than the shot on the cover, Cole looks way too generic and bland (visually) from that shot.


227

+ EmpireNO on June 6th, 2010 at 5:22 am said:

I’m really looking forward to InFamous 2. They can’t go wrong with this, it’ll be awesome. Loved the 1st one.

i agree…what does Sony have left for E3? PS4? lol jk

+ coldvengence666 on June 6th, 2010 at 8:04 am said:

Honestly I didn’t even like the first game , so I can’t say I’m excited about the second.The only way i’d play it,is if it was less hard and frustrating then the first, I couldn’t even get through the demo.I’d be more happy if they announced a sequal to prototype, now that was a good game.

241

+ korgon117 on June 7th, 2010 at 10:38 am said:

Yippee!! infamous 2 will be epic! But I must agree, da new Cole looks really stupid, what with the necklaces and all. If you dont change it back to the way he looks in the original, could it at least be an unlockable costume? maybe for have infamous 1 save data, I could deal with that but even if ya dont change it, Im still getting da game for sure! Thanks sucker punch!


242

+ glicher300 on June 7th, 2010 at 10:45 am said:

i think you can play as both this guy and cole ether from the start like play > select character -new guys name here- or cole macgrath
or during the game you meet up with this guy and he joins you or you dont see him exept a few cameos like on the news and cut scenes)

over all i am exited for if dis comes out


243

+ Enforcer_X on June 7th, 2010 at 12:00 pm said:

Just wanted to let Sony and SuckerPunch know I am not buying inFamous 2.
Too many changes to Cole for me to get behind this.


244

+ Nicko96Alien on June 7th, 2010 at 3:33 pm said:

why change the look of cole? if you make his nose a little smaller and spike his hair he looks almost like me =]

anyways cant wait till we get more info and a release date


245

+ officer_vid on June 7th, 2010 at 11:06 pm said:

okay you know what? that might not be cole, i mean look at the face! cole had scars!


246

+ tvagostelo on June 8th, 2010 at 12:45 pm said:

maybe sony is announcing the games of the PS3 before E3 to save the show for the PSP2 ;)


247

+ GEMINIVice on June 8th, 2010 at 9:35 pm said:

…guess there’s really no point in watching Sony’s E3 conference if all the good news is being leaked long before the week of E3. Seriously, first LBP2, then Killzone 3, and now inFamous 2 (well suppose to be inFamous… I sure hope Sucker Punch reconsiders changing Cole back to his original look).

And I think I saw an article on IGN about MotorStorm 3 just recently as well. Seriously, save some for E3 Sony.

+ Elvick_ on June 9th, 2010 at 6:28 pm said:

“I’m very excited to officially announce that Cole MacGrath will be returning”

No he isn’t.

Sucker Punch has created a completely new character and is trying to pass him off as Cole MacGrath. I’m extremely disappointed in Sucker Punch with this. There was nothing wrong with Cole.

If there was, then you should have killed him off in the first 3 seconds of inFamous 2. Not done this. I’ll be getting this game used as to not support such idiocy.

Hey yeah! what do they think theyre doing? wheres cole? and whats up with the outfit? it lloks like he got those from jacking some hobo!!!! wtf!?

+ Sanguinarious on June 9th, 2010 at 11:20 pm said:

You guys are complaining about Cole’s new look but neglect to remember that Cole is supposed to be a normal guy. In inFAMOUS 1, he didn’t look normal (hey look it’s that alien/soldier guy from Resistance) and he definitely didn’t sound normal (hi Wolverine). If he looks too normal or like a dork it is intentional.

Also judging by the pics I’ve seen it looks stellar. I imagine they will show a trailer/demo at E3 since I know GI has already seen it in motion.
