PS4 Exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son Keeps Things Simple in First Commercial

Smells like teen spirit
Sometimes a game has the power to sell itself, and that’s certainly the case with impending PlayStation 4 exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son. Much like the system that it's on, Sony’s marketing team has gone right back to basics with this 30-second European television spot for the impending superhero title, showing protagonist Delsin Rowe blasting up Sucker Punch’s meticulous re-imagining of Seattle, and, well, not a lot else.
We still reckon that the studio would benefit from revealing a set-piece or two just to ramp up hype ahead of the sequel’s release next month, but this advert should very much hit the spot if the platform holder plays it in the right places. After all, given that the series has never been an especially enormous seller, we reckon that it deserves a shot in the spotlight. Whether or not it can fight off the inevitable Titanfall hype machine remains to be seen, though.
