inFAMOUS Second Son

Just a few short weeks ago we officially released inFAMOUS Second Son, the most recent power-filled adventure from Sucker Punch Productions exclusively for the PlayStation 4 system. Immediately following the title’s announcement over a year ago, it was clear so many of you were eagerly anticipating Second Son’s release, the next installment to the inFAMOUS franchise. It was great to see such a warm reception to the title when it finally hit store shelves last month, and for all of us here at PlayStation and the team at Sucker Punch, it’s been really rewarding to share this launch with all of you. It’s exciting to see so many passionate inFAMOUS fans as you share your gameplay moments across all the social media sites including spectacular screenshots on Twitter and live streams on Twitch and Ustream.

So it comes with great excitement to learn that within the first nine days of launch, global sales of inFAMOUS Second Son exceeded over 1 million units*, making Second Son the fastest selling inFAMOUS title to date!

inFAMOUS Second SoninFAMOUS Second Son

A huge congratulations goes out to the team over at Sucker Punch for creating such a wonderful game, a true testament to their passion as developers and commitment to their fans, and a great big thanks to all of you who have picked up the game and have shown us how you enjoy your powers.

There is still more Second Son to come. If you’ve finished both playthroughs and are still looking for more ways to play, we encourage you to check out inFAMOUS Paper Trail, the free bonus content that continues to expand on the Second Son universe. This six week episodic storyline introduces additional in-game missions that will unravel the mysteries behind the D.U.P. Again, it’s absolutely free for everyone who has a copy of inFAMOUS Second Son and a PlayStation Network account. Part Four releases at the end of the week.

Enjoy (your power)!

*Includes both Blu-ray Disc sell-thru quantities and download version sales on PlayStation Store as of March 29, 2014.

Probably because that is the only game out for the PS4.

It’s good to see Infamous is doing well. I don’t want the series to go anywhere anytime soon. I hope they release another standalone DLC. I LOVED Festival of Blood.

While i like Knack and Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer i think inFAMOUS Second Son is so far the best game from WWS on the ps4, congrats Sucker Punch, how about you guys bring an exclusive inFAMOUS title to the psvita?

It’s great to hear that the inFamous games are getting some extra exposure and love right now. Second Son deserves all the attention it’s getting- the more people playing these games the better!

One of my favorite series from the PS3. I’ve got my copy of Second Son. Just gotta finish Dark Souls 2. Congrats on the sales, Sucker Punch.

I wish I had money to buy this game. Unfortunately it looks like it could be more than a year before I would be able to pick up a copy.

:(((

Great playability but weak Story, I loved this franchise after the ultra Twist on the first but from there it has all been down hill, just work on that and you’ll double your sales.

Proud owner of one of those copies (digital).

Well done. Game was ok. Preferred the others though – they had more substance in my opinion.

Happy that sales are high. In my opinion, other then better graphics, the game was a letdown when compared to its predecessors.

+ smoothboarder540 on April 10th, 2014 at 7:39 am said:

The graphics and gameplay are definitely top-notch on this game. The story was okay but there are certainly some flaws. One, the story was much too short. Two, there was very little progression in difficulty/mobs/gameplay. Yes you gained new abilities and upgrades, but they all did virtually the same thing and had the same effectiveness. It may have been intentional to keep the powers on the same general level but I found that kind of boring. I was looking forward to what the new powers could do but was disappointed when they worked just as well as smoke. I’m thinking, why use video when I already fully upgraded neon.

One other little thing was the inconsistency after emotional moments in the story. For example, after getting to Seattle you have this important emotional scene, then once you take control of Delsin he starts joking around. I would just like the Delsin we are controlling to match what is happening in the story at that point in time. You sort of have that at one point in particular (no spoilers) but really only in that moment.

I just got my PS4 on Tuesday & picked up Second Son yesterday. I love the game I’m hoping to end it before I go back to work on Son’day lmaoo. Love the game guy keep up the good work.

Platinumed!

Please guys give us a SANDBOX MODE for players that beat the game twice on good and evil karma.

SANDBOX MODE – Complete access to the city, all powers unlocked with every power shard available and resettable to shift from good or bad.. Every DUP structure is reset (ready to be newly destroyed with powers). Easy editor to add additional challenge via spawning in enemy types and setting them up in key locations. Setting additional challenge by creating objectives to take out enemies in creative ways. Ability to share these challenges with other players.

+ Arkafazin on April 10th, 2014 at 8:11 am said:

I did enjoy this game as well, but man was it short :/. The first two games were twice as long and a sandbox game like Infamous deserves to have more room to play around with a longer story and bigger map.

@jib
Does Microsoft pay you to talk trash? Hows playing those garbage Xbox One games at 720p? 500$ console and mgs,cod aka multiplat games are all 720p on Xbox One. Defending an inferior weak console. How shameful is that. Congrats to SP. well deserved

+ FrostBalrog on April 10th, 2014 at 8:29 am said:

This is probably because its the only good PS4 exclusive out right now. I was quite disappointed with how short it was though, I already almost have the Platinum trophy

I loved this game.

+ TomHoang on April 10th, 2014 at 9:02 am said:

I really hate the whole “PS4/Xbox has no games” arguments. Do you expect there to be a AAA game released every week? And if the games that are already out don’t interest you, then you really are missing out on history.

I have loved my PS4 so far, with Killzone, Knack, Resogun, Outlast, and Infamous SS as some highlights.

I’m glad to have been one of the million for this game since day 1!

+ blackiemist88 on April 10th, 2014 at 9:12 am said:

Congrats sucker punch glad to be part of that million! Just got my platinum a few days ago..good game but not the best in the series. Story wasnt very good (esp.the evil playthrough) and I felt infamous 2 was longer..Please have more story dlc or generally more things to do in the city…Seattle looks too beautiful to have it empty after 25+ hours

Also, if anyone from Sony is reading this, what the HELL happened to Planetside 2? Your SOE team had a big press conference yesterday about H1Z1 and no mention about how a PS4 launch title isn’t here 6 months later?

Congratulations to SP…they must be really flattered…thanks to Sony that gave them this chance to shine…they never were ones to come with a technical marvel…although infamous 2 had the best open-world graphics and great animations,it was really underrated….now its really cool to see how Second Son is faring out there…Second Son will have some months to keep going until The Order is out and new Uncharted showed.

Gotta say great job SP…Second Son is a 3rd reason for me to buy a PS4.

PS:Whats going on PSBlog team?….we got spammers free to do their thing now?

I’d love to play Paper Trail but for whatever reason I can’t continue it. I go to the next mission game and it tells me access the 3 items. I can’t tell you how many times I have on both my laptop and Sony Z tablet. I finally got fed up and quite trying. Good thing this was optional and didn’t count toward my Platinum…. That being said, loved the game. Get on the next installment already!

I picked up Second Son day one, and it is a truly great game, it definitely lives up to the hype in my opinion. The only trouble is that I barely have time to play it! It’s already been more than a week since I last turned it on. I just signed up for Paper Trail, and with any luck I’ll find some time over weekend to play for a few hours.

Congratulations. This was my first inFamous game I actually played but I could already tell it looked much better than the first two. It is a really good game. It’s beautiful, the gameplay is fun, and of course, I love the comedy they had in it. It’s the multiple different powers you get instead of just elec that had me sold in terms of gameplay. Also saw a nice looking video of it being made about how much they put into the audio and looks.

Not surprised over 1 million copies have been sold already. wouldn’t be surprised if they got to 10 million by the end of the year after they have restocked on ps4’s. I beat the game and I think its awesome I think well see a lot more second son bundles being sold in the summer.

I played a little of the first game, but just never really got into it. Second Son, on the other hand, sucked me right in. I Just started my evil play-through after finishing the good path, should knock out the platinum on it before too long.

As for the length, it seems about right to me when you factor in that you should really play through it twice to experience both karma paths/stories.

Congrats on your success, Sucker Punch!
