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

If you didn’t get a chance to check out this summer’s superhero action-adventure blockbuster from Sucker Punch Productions, well, now is the perfect time to do so. Just in time for the holidays, we’re excited to announce that inFAMOUS is now available for $39.99.

If the new price point’s not incentive enough, beginning on December 10th, Cole’s ‘Gigawatt Blades’ Super Power, will become available for FREE on PlayStation Network. The Gigawatt Blades supercharge Cole’s arm into blades of pure energy which can be used to cause massive damage against enemies during melee combat.

inFamous Gigawatt Blades

In other inFAMOUS news, the official game soundtrack which features three previously unreleased bonus tracks will be released December 8th to retail outlets through Sumthing Else Music Works and is now available for digital download on Sumthing Digital.

And one special final note, we’d like to send out congratulations to Sucker Punch Productions as inFAMOUS has sold over 1.2 million copies as of October 2009 – congrats guys!

It’s always nice to hear a game become successful. Especially when it’s a first party game. Good work guys and gals, I hope you bring a second game very soon.

Guys if you don’t have this game buy it, don’t judge it by demo. It’s incredible. Sure it has it’s issues but it is well worth the money. My favorite game of the year but after Uncharted 2. I played most of big games of 2009 and trust me this game is quality. When it comes of it not having MP, it doesn’t need it. You can get 30-35 hours from it if you play on both evil and good and if you want to finish every mission.

Can someone from Sony answer on this question. When you say “sold” do you mean sold to consumers or store?
Would like to rub it in face of VGChartz if i turn to be right…

Hey Jeff or Chris Today we celebrate the 15th birthday of the PlayStation. i’m shock The Blog haven’t mention something about it.

@37 i agree with you on that one they started adding games and just stop. i thought they would have made God of War download able. they would have made more money selling GoW 1 & 2 as a bundle for $40 or single for $20 each. now if they do start doing it people going to say there copying off Xboxlive.

Sometimes, I absolutely love my job. Picked up InFamous for $10 a couple weeks ago. Of course I wrapped it up and am saving it for my birthday/Christmas, but I am SOOOO looking forward to getting into that game after playing the demo and seeing all the trailers and such at work!

ShadowPhoenix18 said:

December 3rd, 11:10 am

And by then, these blades will be waiting for me! :-D

Just curious, is this only attainable through DLC? I’m assuming so but…just wondered.

Most gamestop pre-order bonuses come out a couple of months after the game is out. Seems to be only timed bonus exclusives.


inFAMOUS- Gigablades
Wolverine- Danger room

The danger room is available via PSN, and the gigablades come soon. You just have to wait a bit in order to get them.

An amazing game. With any luck the lower price point will inspire even more people to give it a shot to see just how awesome it really is.

just curious, 1.2 million US or worldwide?

Deeloc107 said:

yeah sony we like free stuff….

@55 Globox_82
Both Nintendo and Sony report sales figures that is sold to the consumers and not retailers. MS report figure sold to retailers and not consumers. So that 6 million lead the xbox 360 has over the PS3 is probable more like 4 million or even less.
So the 1.2 million is new copies, not used copies from gamestop or other trading in stores, that are in consumers homes.

@ 73 WestSiide
That is most likely worldwide.
It should sell around 1.5 million before the year end.

Good job SP, loved the game, it was incredible. As soon as I get done with GOW collection and Assasain’s Creed 2, I’ll go back and replay the game to get the plat trophy and try this DLC out. Seriously can’t wait to see what happens with inFAMOUS 2.
