inFamous Not Releasing This June, After All

Asad Qizilbash's Avatar Posted by Vice President, Marketing, SIEA

Many of you may be wondering when we plan to announce the release date for inFamous. Well today, we have a little surprise for you….the release month is no longer June. Now wait, I know what you’re thinking…inFamous is NOT delayed, in fact, the guys up at Sucker Punch have been working so hard that the game will be releasing in the U.S. on May 26!

Now with just a little over a month until the game hits shelves, inFamous pre-order goodness begins today. Those who pre-order the game at participating retailers will have a chance to get one of the following:

  • An exclusive ‘Gigawatt Blades’ Super Power: The Gigawatt Blades supercharges Cole’s arm into an instrument of destruction unmatched by any other melee weapon in game. Although very powerful, you’ll still have to use this weapon wisely, as it takes a considerable drain on your powers.

inFamous Gigawatt Blades

  • Limited-edition inFamous costume for Home Avatar – Look like one of the REAPER gang members.

inFamous Reaper in Home

  • Early access to the official Game Demo. Be one of the first to play inFamous on May 7th.

And, yes, the inFamous demo will be made available to everyone on the PlayStation Network on May 21. We’ve got a lot more surprises on the way the next few weeks, so stay tuned…..

I don’t understand why gamestop can swing these kinda deals. You think the publishers would wise up to the fact that this store makes money fist over disc on sales of their used games. The net income they make from these exclusive deals does not even approach the double digit percentages gamestop makes on the sale of previously played copies. It hardly seems worth it but, “Booo!”

The REAPER gang member look reminds me of the Reapers from The World Ends With You. Great game.

On another note, delayed til June, how could you!! AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

Every day these whiners complain about something new, it never ends.

My first paragraph still stands, nix the rest. Foot in mouth, foot in mouth. Doesn’t taste swell.

Will be any way that europeans could get this extras? Like also preordering or something?

Since the first trailer with the Lincoln phrase I knew thay I’ll purchase this game on day one, so I’m more interested in the new power than the demo or the Home costume.

April 14th, 6:45 am

being that you work for sony may be you can answer some questions for me any help would be greatly appreciated.
1 when is this coming out in australia?
2 why does sony allways delay there exclusives here R2 a perfect example we had to wait an extra 3 weeks almost.
3 why does sony NEVER release a limited edition here in OZ? i would of loved a LE of R2 or K2.
4 guides theres never a guide for a game published by sony.
R2 guide nope KZ2 guide nope i could go on.
5 is the demo going to be released early here in oz early to exclusive to preorders or available to everyone like KZ2.
because KZ2 in america they had to preorder but we got it without pre ordering same time.

April 14th, 8:38 am

THank you sucker punch and sony, now I will get to play this game sooner than I thought, too bad I’m broke cause I would really like one of those perks you get with pre ordering it, guess I will just have to rent it from gamefly.

BiosNova said:

dulcediana said:

April 14th, 10:16 am

just asking if someone knows…the power is exclusive for gamestop preorders or I can have it in any copy of the game unlock it in a normal way?

Jazzak said:

Kudos to Sucker Punch!!! Great to see a release date moved up instead of pushed back.

I would love to know if you can give me the release date for those of us down under as I have been hanging for this game since I first downloaded the 2007 trailer, and this a definate day 1 purchase for me.

EvoAnubis said:

April 15th, 2:08 am

Waited until things calmed down to post.

Congrats on getting the game out early, and thanks for giving the place I’ll actually buy this from the best pre-order offer. I’ll take getting the demo early over a power I won’t use or a Home outfit I’ll never wear any day.

firedude7 said:

FlyFlice37 said:

Will this game have custom soundtracks

Ghostlid said:

April 15th, 6:55 pm

Does anyone know if preorder at Gamestop gets you early access to the demo? I know it gets you the gigawatt power blade thing, but I was just wondering if you got the demo early as well.

i hope they make a collectors edition of infamous add something interesting like a figurine of our hero

EPIC_TUN said:

April 23rd, 2:25 pm

Well, I knew about the Gigawatt Blades (Pre-Ordered from Gamestop just to get ’em) glad they’re making the demo public, even if it IS later… The home outfit is… Uh… Well, the hoodie is cool, at least.


Fobol909 said:

April 25th, 8:06 pm

I CAN’T WAIT TILL inFAMOUS. It’s going to be sick I pre ordered it from amazon even though I really wanted the blades but guys you know apparently if you pre order it from best buy you get a multiplayer beta for Uncharted 2

EVL_LRX said:

April 27th, 2:03 pm

Lets hope that with the early release date they work out all the bugs. With this game getting so much hype it better be great!


April 27th, 8:43 pm

I wish they’d just combine all the pre-order features into a collectors edition and charge like an extra 10 bucks instead of making us choose which of those we want. Oh well, I’ll probably just get the blades. They seem cool.

jonathankeene said:

April 27th, 9:25 pm

I hope that the powers that you can “unlock” or discover along the way are well worth the anticipation about this game.

RainMan77551 said:

May 7th, 1:45 pm

Can anyone confirm if Gamestop is getting the early access demo. The one in the area I live in doesn’t have them yet.
