What do you want to know about… inFAMOUS and MAG?

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by

Sr. Social Media Manager


The pre-E3 PlayStation press tour continues, now from sunny Seattle. And so we want to know: What do you want us to ask Sucker Punch and Zipper Interactive about, respectively, inFAMOUS and MAG? Just ask away in the comments area below the post.

We were able to get dozens of your previous questions answered yesterday – can’t wait to share those videos with you beginning next week.

There are screenshots in this months GameInformer and it shows it in FPS. It mentions they’ve tried it in many perspectives and feel this is the best way to get you immersed into the game.

My question’s:
– How customizable are the matches?
– What’s the third faction?
– Can you go in-depth of how each faction changes the experience you get when playing it?
– What types of maps will we see?
– Will there be any weather effects that could affect the gameplay?
– How much freedom do you have gameplay-wise (i.e. Can I start a game, jump in a plane and fly around, then parachute out?)
– Will there be boats in some shape or form?

And as a request, can you please make in-game music available? I know many say it’s a stupid feature, but I find it best for online shooters at least.

what was the hardest game element to pull of in infamous.

any plans to release dlc for infamous like gta 4. like an alternate story?

Infamous: Alot of people I know have been comparing Infamous with Prototype, so my question is, how would you rate Infamous to Prototype?

gibration said:

April 22nd, 7:31 am

Is MAG set to release this year?

Braskan said:

April 22nd, 7:32 am

Will the preorder power be available in Europe? Will the power be available as a DLC after release?

hife said:

April 22nd, 7:35 am

– What’s the third PMC like???

Sucker Punch
– Will you host a shame competition, say I won it, and send me a review copy of inFamous?

hife said:

April 22nd, 7:36 am

sham* not shame

bravo9zero said:

April 22nd, 7:36 am

YES!! Keyboard and mouse support for MAG would be amazing.

HazeBlaze said:

April 22nd, 7:38 am

I’ve already pre-ordered inFamous from Gamestop but I really want the gigawatt blades. Will they, or any other powers, be available in DLC at some later point?

Second Question: Is Sucker Punch considering episodic content to continue the story after the game’s release? For a comic book based game, it seems the perfect candidate to become the model game for episodic DLC… even moreso than GTA.

spunnups said:

April 22nd, 7:39 am

Infamous : how long is the main story, are there going to be epic boss battles, is there anything in it that hasn’t been done before?

PhillyPhan4810 said:

Ask zipper if they can make a new socom game so we can have a REAL next gen socom game

INC06N36R0 said:

April 22nd, 7:42 am

For Sucker Punch: How many hours of gameplay is there to be expected with inFamous’ story, and will there be DLC in the form of seperate stories or even parallel stories revolving around others who have received powers from the explosion?

For Zipper: Is MAG officially confirmed to be a first person shooter? If so, will there be an option to switch to 3rd person like socom? Also, will the game have a single player element to it?

EddyxMob said:

April 22nd, 7:44 am

Is there anyway to fast jump between different cities or land marks throughout the whole game?


Would there be like a HUD to check how much EXP we till need to level up?

thank you

CSchmidto said:

April 22nd, 7:45 am

will MAG have offline multiplayer as well?
or can it include the option to take other players online like halo or resistance? cuz that would be amazingly fun

chisox100 said:

April 22nd, 7:47 am

Will MAG have a bundle with the official Bluetooth headset?

Will InFamous have multiplayer of any sort?

Midgetguy said:

April 22nd, 7:50 am

SuckerPunch- What, if any, elements or ideas were translated from the Sly Cooper franchise into InFamous?

-Are you planning on continuing support for InFamous with DLC, Add-Ons, and such?

-Will In-Game Screenshots and XMB Music be supported?

-Would you look into offering the music from the game on the Playstation Store?

Zipper Interactive- MAG has, err…a MASSIVE amount of players in a single match, how is this possible? Also, how many players do you think you’d be able to have on “other” consoles, compared to the PS3?

-Are you planning to continue support for this game through DLC, Add-ons, etc…?

-Does MAG support In-Game Screenshots and/or XMB Music?

-What types of game modes does MAG offer? Typical Deathmatches, Team Deathmatches, Capture the Flag, etc…? Or are there more original game modes exclusive to MAG?

J4cK1505 said:

What features are in place to ensure the player has the best multiplayer experience possible on the PS3. Such as the abilities to:

Join AND invite friends
Party system
Game filters
lots of ranks and trophies available
Squad based chat
Reliable servers
Range of game types
Balanced classes and weapons

…and are there any plans to integrate cross game chat into the XMB. The worst thing is trying to arrange a game amongst a lot of friends through the sluggish text messages. And when the inevitable occurs, a player leaves a game for what ever reason, he will want to remain in voice contact with his friends to explain wtf just happened

MGSTigerFox said:

April 22nd, 7:52 am

The main thing that I want to know is whether or not there will be trophy support for the games, especially MAG – and if so, if they will create a Platinum trophy for it!

Also, will players be able to listen to their own custom in-game soundtracks via the XMB? Inquiring minds want to know! =)

BlackIceJoe said:

April 22nd, 7:54 am

For Infamous is there any co-op or only play.

Is the main character a red head or bald I can never tell.

How different game play wise to graphic, physics and what not from Sly Cooper.

I know they are both totally different games but Infamous is coming out on the PS3 were Sly is on the PS2. So what can they do on the PS3 that they could not before.

As for MAG will they be any story even if it is just loosely put in there. Will the Story be more then just go and kill this bad guy or can we find out why these groups and going to kill this other group.

Same thing as Sucker Punch what is different from the PS2 to the PS3. Will there be vehicles, ships or any thing like them even turrents.

Will MAG come out on Blu Ray or only PSN. Please tell me Blu Ray.

What was the reasoning behind the name MAG, Was this the first name the group at Zipper came up with.

How big is the team working on MAG.

Will there be a beta public meta to work out the kinks like there was for Warhawk?

Will Mag Support split-screen, co-op.

Seeing as PSN allows multiple PSN log in names now could me and a friend play MAG with a group of many other people.

nandosupes said:

April 22nd, 7:55 am

what engine is the developing team of MAG using to create the game?. what kind of physics the game will have?.

thanks for your time.

GGCAN said:

April 22nd, 7:56 am

Do they yet know if there will be a demo ?

VaDeR81 said:

April 22nd, 8:00 am

will there any way to communicate with the residents(gestures)good or evil?

VaDeR81 said:

April 22nd, 8:01 am

will there be^

Onslaught500 said:

April 22nd, 8:02 am

what games is MAG most similar to? where does it get most of its inspiration? FPS/TPS?

SPJammer said:

April 22nd, 8:02 am


How will the communication between players work in the game? I understand that a player will be grouped in a 8 player squad which is part of a 4 squad platoon which is part of a 4 platoon Company.

Will we only be able to talk to our squad members only? Will the leaders of said squads, platoons and the company be able to communicate with each other? Since there is only 8 members to a squad will we be able to communicate with clan members on another squad? Thanks.

VaDeR81 said:

April 22nd, 8:03 am

please give us the option to download M.A.G.

LordRaoh said:

April 22nd, 8:03 am

For M.A.G., what is the end game here. Meaning, i’m sure you have your core gameplay and features. But where do you eventually want to take M.A.G. down the road where it might not be possible now. Will this be a one time deal with updates or are we looking at a possible franchise with M.A.G.

Also server side, Zipper has known all to well the cheating that has happened in earlier versions of SOCOM. From your experience what are you going to do about preventing, cheating, lag, glitches, etc. ?

Will there be website, PSN, game and HOME integration?

For Sucker Punch i dont have any questions. I’m really glad you guys are ahead of schedule and thank you for that. Can’t wait to get my hands on both these games.

LordRaoh said:

April 22nd, 8:05 am

Also forgot to ask Zipper is there will be a party system and game invite features. Personally i feel this should be a standard in all multiplayer games.

TuxBobble said:

April 22nd, 8:06 am

MAG – How rigid are the teams’ structures in 256-player gameplay?

For instance, how many players is it actually possible to SEE in a game SIMULTANEOUSLY?

Is there going to be some sort of squad-based gameplay which restricts that number, or are we expecting to see massive single battles with 128v128 mayhem?

zombie_56 said:

April 22nd, 8:07 am

how much weapons will be in mag?

infamous will their be any kind of multiplayer of is it just single player also is their going to be any dlc

zombie_56 said:

April 22nd, 8:09 am

and jeff do you know if canada will be getting the video psn store anytime soon?

the-party-b said:

April 22nd, 8:10 am

inFamous: is there indoors gameplay or is the game set completely outdoors?

MAG: will it be playable with keyboard and mouse?

ba-dew said:

April 22nd, 8:11 am

Any chance of Europe getting a release date? Its starting to look very likely we will be left waiting again.

Also to all the people asking questions regarding inFamous game length. Brian Fleming has already stated in a GDC interview that inFamous story alone will take around 20 hours to complete and there is an additional 100 side quests which are karma specific i.e Every mission for a Hero has a villainous equivalent.

juanpipe said:

April 22nd, 8:12 am

My question about MAG is team work, will be more motivations and punishment for the people who never work in the team? Also team kills, there are people who love to see their teammates die, will be there a punishment for that too?

inFamous: Will the missions appear like GTA (in the radar) or will they flow as you progress the game?

yoeun88 said:

April 22nd, 8:13 am

someone prolly already said this but: Will MAG come with a bluetooth headset

Wookie501 said:

April 22nd, 8:13 am

How does Zipper coordinate so many people in there MAG game. I found that in Resistence 2 the sheer number of people in 60 player games was unbarable. Will zipper be creating a game based on chaotic battles or more mellow skermishes, or will the map be laid out to catter for both at once?

CEK111 said:

April 22nd, 8:17 am

Will there be a MAG Beta, for other countries, not just the US.

jimmy903 said:

April 22nd, 8:18 am

MAG questions?
Can you tell us about all of, or any alternate forms of transportation?

The readers want to know about what weapons are being used in the game, and are there un-lockable weapons and upgrades?

Can you tell us more about the class/ranking system?

The PSN is supposed to represent free online game play, what is the business model looking like for M.A.G.?

There is going to be face customization, will we be able to face map using the PS Eye? Something like in Rainbow Six Vegas 2?

When can we expect to see more locations within the game, and how many maps are expected when the game goes gold? DLC?

Communication options, in game, web site, HOME, leader boards, clan management ECT.?

I don’t really have any more questions about inFamous, I will be getting the game though.

If i fart into the central air conditioning unit in my office, will the smell then disperse around the whole office?

Balex1908 said:

Why Zipper left SOCOM and did a new IP? Would it not be easier to bring out a game with all the new features but still having the name “SOCOM” on it?

It is confirmed that MAG will have 3 different factions, so is there a story or something like that?

Any details on the health system? Is it more realistic like 1-2 shots and you are dead? Or is there a health bar?

They wont tell us a release date, but can they confirm a 2009 release at least. And I dont mean the fiscal 2009 ;-)

Infamous :

How the good or bad choices have an impact on the story? Will infamous have 2 different endings?

Except choosing the good or bad path how will they try to increase replay value?

BTW, thx this whole Q/A thing is awesome.


April 22nd, 8:29 am

Okay I’m not asking anymore I’m Telling Zipper,

Zipper Interactive as one of the better game companies out there, I am telling you not requesting of you but telling you that a THIRD PERSON POV OPTION is a MUST for MAG. You see all of us Socom fans want to buy your game but if you do not put in the 3rdppov then most of us will pass on it. Now I remember the official announcement back some three years ago and I still have the article saved here on my hdd, in it you state that there will be an online only Socom(Confrontation) a new psp version(FTB3) and then a Massive New Socom will be made with offline story and online competitive and co-op modes .
I want you to Keep your word.

We(Socomers) need this game to be 3rd ppov, absolutely need it to be that way or at least an option. You have always included it in the past so why not with this version. Another thing, I think you should change it to Socom Mag. That sounds better and would keep you in true lines with your previous projected outlook of the franchise.
Thank You and have a Great Day.

I heard that MAG will have squad leaders, then like commanders, then generals that are all in charge of certain things, like the squads or platoons, or the whole team.. If there general is a noob, will our team totally fail if he doesn’t know what he’s doing? or will there be set objectives created by the game?

thelig32 said:

April 22nd, 8:31 am

With infamous… the game looks awesome, its the first game of the year that I’m considerably excited about. What do you plan to do to promote this game before its release. I’d hate to see the game ignored simply because it wasn’t promoted well.

With MAG, I am very skeptical. SOCOM for the PS3 did not turn out well. Even after the updates and patches, the game is simply lacking quality. What are you doing with MAG to make it fun. I know the 256 player limit, but that means nothing if the game isn’t exciting. I and many other gamers will be extremely disappointed if MAG ends up like SOCOM.

deadpool7 said:

April 22nd, 8:34 am

Can you detail the squad-based combat and implications a bit more in M.A.G.?

For example, will there be scenarios where Squad 1 might be tasked with blowing up a bridge that enemy tanks plan on crossing. If Squad 1 succeeds, Squad 2 doesn’t get attacked by the enemy tanks, if Squad 1 fails, Squad 2 now has tanks to deal with.

Doaner said:

What resolution and frame rate does it run at?
Same question for inFAMOUS

mixedkidbx said:

i already pre order inFamous months ago but just wondering….

TwinDad said:

Sunny Seattle? I suspect your not in the same Seattle, WA that I am. There be rain outside.

But @ Jazzyrider, yes, the last few days were perfect.

kaelinronkus said:

April 22nd, 8:42 am

Will Mag be First person or Third person view?

How many weapons are in Mag? Will the characters be fully customizable?

What vehicles are in Mag?

Will Mag support In-Game music and Trophies?

Single player mode in Mag?

What kind of physics engine is Mag using?
