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.

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!

I’m sure the game will be good enough on its own to buy, but will the Uncharted 3 codes be in the normal versions of the game as well?

Great collectors edition. They are definitely worth it when they give physical items like figures or useable things like backpacks. Unfortunately the RPG ones usually only give like art books which is…. lame, but this is great and I already have mine preordered on amazon :]

+ angelspawn77 on May 24th, 2011 at 1:03 pm said:

Not a bad deal, but too bad I don’t have the cash to be spending on it :/ I will just have to settle for the regular game which im sure will be great :D You guys should have done a video though instead of pictures or both!

would be nice if the backpack fit my 12″ laptop, my current backpack is falling apart, literally.

I literally just went out and pre-ordered this after seeing that bag. Hope it fits good and is able to hold at least a couple books. Wouldn’t mind using it for school :)


126

+ BansheeBomb on May 24th, 2011 at 3:44 pm said:

The main reason I’m getting the Hero Edition is for the Backpack. However, playing Kessler would probably be awesome, and I knew that you could get a Glod Amp, but since you can use Sly’s cane, this just got even better. Totally worth $100.

@ KingKen21 Nobody lied to you . Sony has stated right from the get go that the store may be offline up to MAY 31 st the info you recieved was 3rd party info , NOT OFFICIAL . if you want accurate info , go straight to the source . as for infamous goes played the first and still playing it , preordered hero edition and picking it up at a midnight release .

This is probably the one collector’s edition I would buy in all its glory (I have had it preordered at gamestop since I heard there was one). A Poster, a U3 Beta Code, A replica sling pack, the two skins, the abilities, the items, the evil karma version of the first comic, and last the replica Cole. Oh come on, whoever doesn’t think all that stuff together is worth $100 for fans of this game is probably turning a blind eye. This will be BADASS. Period.
