inFAMOUS Goes Gold!

Brian Fleming's Avatar Posted by Sucker Punch Productions

inFamous Pack Front final

3+ years, 60+ people, insane amounts of caffeinated beverages, and 70,000+ individual checkins of code, art, and media, and what do you get? A gold disc for inFAMOUS! We got the news late yesterday (just in time for the team to run off and tip a few back!) and I’m not sure it’s really sank in for me yet. But it’s official, and somewhere I hope they’re stamping out your copy of inFAMOUS right as you read this!

It’s a tradition here to bust out old builds and videos of the game and laugh at ourselves for how *crappy* the game was 2 years ago. It’s a strange combination of humiliation at how we ever showed those builds to people, appreciation to Sony for believing in us even when the game was so provably terrible, and sense of accomplishment at how far we were able to come, especially in the last 6-12 months. Plus it’s just plain hilarious to see some of our really BAD ideas on-screen.

But that’s the journey of making video games. We’re proud of what we accomplished getting to here, but the point of it all was to make something for you guys to enjoy — and we’re hopeful that you will drop us a note and let us know what you think after you’ve beaten the game! Enjoy the ride and thanks so much for all your support!

EDITOR’S NOTE: If you want to know what the last few weeks were like for Brian and the Sucker Punch team, look out for the Road To Gold dev diary releasing in May.

April 16th, 5:19 pm

Great news, will the release date of the game be the same in Europe and Australia as in the US?

Is the Gigawatt Blade power only available for pre-orders or is it unlockable by playing the game?

Awesome! I’ve been wanting to play this game since I saw the E3 videos of it. I’m excited for this game. This has been a great year for the PS3 and it’s just gonna continue to get better.

Draicus said:

Congratulation on the accomplishment! inFamous looks absolutely great and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

Which reminds me, time to go pre-order so I can get my crazy Gigawatt blades.

SOLD!!!!

PlasmaGlory said:

April 16th, 5:26 pm

Wait, if there’s only 60+ people, how come the credits last for like 15 minutes?

SpyDudeFX said:

April 16th, 5:29 pm

The game looks incredible, I can’t wait. Congrats to the team, it might be too late but a lenticular 3D cover would probably be so appealing and make the game stand out on the shelf.

Hellz Yeah!!

Can’t wait. Too bad it comes out a day after my birthday so my fiance won’t buy it for me. :P Tempted to order up another copy for a friend who’s birthday is later that week. ;)

although I’m still pissed how all these pre-orders are being handled with get this here, get that there, and get something else there…

going to be long month waiting. Have to go back and play Dead Space, R2, KZ2, or some others to hold me over. ;)

Great news. I hope it will be good, by the look of it, it could be either a boring/repetitive game or a really fun one. Will see this with a little demo :p

loucetios said:

coolasj19 said:

April 16th, 5:42 pm

ok the constant fact that the team keeps showing how hard they worked is telling me how hard they worked is tipping me over the BUY IT NOW edge. im starting to feel that i need to buy this just because they DID work so hard. i do want i though……

I am very interested in getting this game, but will wait for reviews and a demo before making up my mind. I have bought a lot of games recently…I have never played a Sucker Punch game before, but they have a good reputation and I’m willing to give them any benefit of the doubt. Congratulations and thank you for another great PlayStation 3 exclusive.

Congrats guys. I hope you guys get some good marketing. It sad that good games like inFamous will not do so well in North America.
