inFAMOUS 2 Hero Edition: The Unboxing

Chuck Lacson's Avatar + Posted by Chuck Lacson on May 24, 2011 // Product Marketing Manager, SCEA

It’s been a bit since we gave the skinny on the inFAMOUS 2 Hero Edition and now we’ve finally got a copy in the office and can do a proper unboxing of this sweet collection of inFAMOUS 2 goodness. So, to quote Brad Pitt in Seven…..”WHAT’S IN THE BOX!?!

inFAMOUS 2: Hero Edition

Let us begin….if you see this on your local store shelf or favorite retailer website and you are a fan of inFAMOUS…..grab it! (Oh, and pay for it of course….we don’t want you TASED for shoplifting.)

inFAMOUS 2: Hero Edition

Inside you will find a plethora of inFAMOUS 2 goodness all wrapped in plastic to preserve “da freshness.”

What will be hard to resist opening up is the Cole MacGrath statue. This highly detailed statue, designed by Sucker Punch and sculpted by Dave Cortes of Inu Art, stands at 8.5 inches and comes with a New Marais roof top stand that’s perfect for display. Dave Cortes is a toy industry veteran and is known for some of the coolest action figures out today from McFarlane, Neca, Mezco and more!

Right after the figure we tore open the full size replica of Cole’s sling pack. Built for everyday use (and the occasional cosplay party) the pack is big enough and padded to fit your laptop, clothes, or hold your Amp (if you have one). Complete with it’s signature Sly patch, feel free to take it along the next time you feel the need to parkour around your neighborhood.

inFAMOUS 2: Hero Edition

Also included is the first issue of the inFamous DC comic book with variant cover. This is a must-read for any inFAMOUS fans who wondered what occurred after the events of the original game. You’ll learn the backstory of familiar characters like Moya and Sasha and get a better understanding of the events that set Cole’s new adventure in motion.

It goes without saying that you get your electrifying copy of inFAMOUS 2 in all its Blu-ray glory with access to tons of user-generated content (UGC), but what makes this copy special is the Super Voucher that comes with it! Check out the break down of the content:

Two New Powers
New ways to be shocking!

Two Sweet Skins
When you want to change up your look:

inFAMOUS 2: Kessler SkininFAMOUS 2: Reaper Skin

Four Amp Variants
Bling it up or be “Sly.” The choice is yours:

  • Gold Amp
  • Sly’s Cane
  • Caveman Club
  • Samurai Sword

Gold Amp

Not only do you get access to special skins, sick new powers, and Amp variants, you get to download the special inFAMOUS 2 Red soundtrack featuring special tracks not available anywhere else!

inFAMOUS 2: Hero Edition

It’s like Christmas in June! Be sure to secure your copy of the Hero Edition today. These were made in limited quantities, so it is the total “must have” collector’s item for any serious inFAMOUS fan!

To get a deep dive on how the figure was made, plus an inside look on the DC comic series and the game soundtrack, keep an eye on infamousthegame.com this week!

Sony you need to grow some balls and address the public on when the store is going to return….YOu have some very peeoeed customers that are not very pleased with how you have been not updating us and the fact its been 34 days since the store has been up! I’d say everyone needs to turn to microsoft! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

@ CHRIS23984

You don’t need to triple post on purpose. Calm down, it will be up soon enough, you can turn to Microsoft if you want, but I will play whatever I want (which includes both PS3 and 360), thank you very much.

On to the topic of the article… SWEET! I can’t wait for Infamous 2, and now you tell me I can us Sly’s cane instead of the Amp, done deal! Oh, and that bag has officially become my new Macbook case!

I didn’t really like inFamous 1 and thought it was way too overrated. I give the game a 7/10 at best. Still inFamous too looks like it is a great improvement over the first game and I am certainly buying this game on launch. If I have enough money, I might get the Hero Edition since I do need a new backpack and the extra stuff are nice.

    Currently the pre-order exclusive skins are just available if you buy from particular retailers. But if you have pre-ordered and got a voucher, you’ll be able to get all 4 bonus items (Reaper and 3 Amp skins)

@CHRIS23984:
Please stop spamming the threads with answers not related to the current blog-post. Sony SAID here on the BLOG a few weeks ago that the store will be back up by MAY 31. So, you have an ETA for the store, now, just be patient. Sony want the store to be back up and running way MORE than YOU believe me. They’re loosing money, DLC sales and others sales too because the store is down so you can be sure they’re working on it.

So, people, STOP ASKING for the Store, you have a date, be patient until then and don’t troll the specific-games-related posts here. We’ll be happy when it’ll be back but most of us are patients…

Looks pretty sweet. Pre ordered mine a while back. Hopefully the store is up so that I can activate said super voucher. Wish they would put stuff specifically for limited editions on disc instead like the good GOTY edition games. Probably never happen but as long as the game is as awesome as Infamous I can deal with it.

Oh and @CHRIS23984 (4 and others trolling posts):
I almost forgot, I’ll NEVER turn to Microssesoft, that’s how I call them here in Quebec, “crosse” in french means “companies that “ripp” people” by giving them poor quality products at a too high price (like Windows by example). EVERY corporation out there could have been through what Sony goes through recently…I love Sony consoles, I like the games that are on it and I’ll not abandon them for a less-than 1 month outage when the other console have a paid service and still had a 20 days outage in the past…
@CHRIS23984: If the lack on online wich is ok now, and the lack of store bothers you so much, maybe you should analyse your “addictness” (spell?) to gaming…maybe you need a treatment… ; P

I wish this was out before I go to E3. The sling pack looks like it would have come in handy walking the show floor for some swag storage. Sucker Punch knocked the “Hero Edition” out of the park. I’ve spent more for editions with less content.
