Yoshida updates us on inFAMOUS dev
We would have bet our life savings on Sucker Punch announcing its new game at E3 2017 – and we would have lost the lot. Despite being out of action for almost three years, the Seattle-based studio still has nothing to say about its new game, widely believed to be a brand new intellectual property for the...
A Reddit rumour claims that inFAMOUS developer Sucker Punch is working on a Spaghetti Western for the PlayStation 4, but there's no truth to it as far as we can tell. The speculation seems to be based upon a bunch of old, unresolved Sony rumours that one poster has just decided to pull together into one place. The person cites artwork...
Sucker Punch's next game will not be an inFAMOUS sequel, but an all-new intellectual property. That's according to industry know-it-all Shinobi602, who alluded as much in a NeoGAF post overnight. While we try to steer clear of the "insider" bubble, the poster's track record speaks for itself; he teased the likes of Horizon: Zero Dawn...
It's been the talk of Push Square Towers since the rumours started: could Sucker Punch really make a Spider-Man game for the PlayStation 4? A voice actor's resume started the discussion, when Stephen Oyoung's portfolio reference
It's been quiet for over a year now, so plenty of attention is starting to be placed on Sucker Punch – the studio behind PlayStation hits such as inFAMOUS and Sly Cooper. Nobody really knows what the developer's up to, but its recruitment page does contain a few hints. According to a Senior Graphics Programmer listing its next...
Watching your every move
Sony first-party Sucker Punch has taken another step towards PlayStation production powerhouse status, as it's just added the finishing touches to its own internal motion capture studio. Billy Harper, who's the Character and Cinematic Supervisor at the company, revealed the tidbit on Twitter, after taking photographs of...
"We're not satisfied," says studio
Considering that it was an early title and open world, inFAMOUS: Second Son really proved what the PlayStation 4 is capable of. Sure, it may have been a little lacking in the replay value department, but it was a very enjoyable title – and rightly deserved its Gold Trophy award in our Game of the Year rundown...
Shoryuken take it?
Sucker Punch, the studio behind Sly Cooper, has been pumping out consistently high-quality first-party titles for years now, with the excellent inFAMOUS: Second Son and standalone expansion inFAMOUS: First Light being among its most recent success stories. A recent job listing suggested that it was working on a new sandbox title...
It’s been a little while since inFAMOUS: Second Son sprinted onto the PlayStation 4 and dazzled us with its neon effects, and as such, following the release of spin-off inFAMOUS: First Light, it seems that Seattle-based studio Sucker Punch is finally starting to think about its next PlayStation 4 project. A new job listing on the...
Studio struck by round of redundancies
Sucker Punch’s sizeable superhero spin-off inFAMOUS: First Light may be mere days away from its debut on the PlayStation 4, but the Seattle-based studio has been struck by a fresh round of layoffs behind the scenes. There’s no word on how many have departed the firm, but Sony has confirmed that there’s...
If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably been spending the last few days fiddling about with inFAMOUS: Second Son’s recently implemented picture mode in order to create magnificent artistic masterpieces. The strangely addictive feature offers a great way of appreciating the superhero sim’s gorgeous visuals. What’s...
"I smell bullshots"
Publishers are known for faking screenshots in order to paint their games in the best possible light, but there’s nothing bogus about the slew of inFAMOUS: Second Son pictures that are about to hit the web. As promised, Sucker Punch has released the superhero sequel’s latest patch today, and it’s already shaken some...
In just nine days
Xbox One semi-exclusive Titanfall may have been the biggest release in March, but that’s not stopped inFAMOUS: Second Son from dropping a smoke bomb at retail. Sony has revealed that the PlayStation 4 exclusive surpassed one million sales within nine days of its release, making it by far the fastest selling entry in Sucker...
A link between worlds
While the blindness of fandom can sometimes foolishly take hold, most of us here at Push Square love a good Nintendo game. And it seems that first-party Sony developer Sucker Punch is much the same, as the Washington-based studio has hidden an Easter egg in the recently released inFAMOUS: Second Son that gives a shout out to...
Light bar watch is one of the more entertaining pastimes in this editor’s embarrassingly non-existent social life. Here at Push Square towers we can’t seem to decide whether the PlayStation 4 controller’s illuminating surface is a slice of genius or a load of old tosh. As such, we’ve committed ourselves to writing...
Another one bites the dust
It's been a tough few weeks for Sony's Worldwide Studios. With the recent departures of several high profile developers, including Uncharted series director Amy Hennig, we're starting to notice a bit of a worrying trend. And it seems that yet another creative has joined the causality list, as Jaime Griesemer – the lead...
There aren't enough hours in the day
One of the biggest additions to inFAMOUS 2 was its LittleBigPlanet inspired user generated content feature. This allowed you to create custom missions, stories, and platforming challenges within the sandbox setting of New Marais, which you could then share with friends and strangers within the game. While many...
Enjoy your power
inFAMOUS: Second Son would have been a very different game without you. While you may not be aware of it, the upcoming superhero sequel was designed in direct response to your actions, with both your narrative choices and playstyle culminating in crucial decisions during the construction of the release. It’s uncommon for a title...
Developer Sucker Punch may be keeping its lips shut tighter than a peeved parent's purse strings, but that doesn't mean that it's managed to keep hold of every detail surrounding upcoming teenage angst simulator inFAMOUS: Second Son. In true franchise fashion, an eager fan has purposefully defied his master's wishes, managing to dig up...
Sucker Punch’s upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son stinks of teen spirit. The Seattle-based open world adventure has clearly been inspired by grunge culture, from the nature of Delsin Rowe’s clothing right through to the inclusion of famous venue the Crocodile Cafe, which has been painstakingly remodelled in the...
The build-up to inFAMOUS: Second Son has been a subject of much discussion here at Push Square towers over the past few months. It’s clear that Sony as a whole has changed its approach to product launches, opting to announce titles much later and show much less of them. However, the firm’s been particularly secretive when it...
The inFAMOUS: Second Son news just refuses to stop today. After Sony stated that it reckons the next-gen title will be the most successful entry in the series, it was revealed that the open world romp won't be getting a demo. Now, a live action ad for the game has popped up on YouTube in a flash of sm
No smoke without fire
Better put those neon glow sticks down, because you won't be partying with an InFAMOUS: Second Son demo any time soon. With the game set to release in just a couple of weeks, brand development director Ken Schramm has told Videogamer.com that there are no plans for a bite-sized trial of the super powered sequel. "It's hard to...
Currently has more pre-orders than The Last of Us
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Sony has stated that it reckons super powered sequel InFAMOUS: Second Son will be the most successful entry into Sucker Punch's series. Speaking with MCV, SCE UK product manager Josh Walker said that the company is "excited by the level of pre-orders which are exceeding that...
Sony may be busy zapping PlayStation 4 exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son onto dozens of Blu-ray discs as we type, but that doesn’t mean that developer Sucker Punch’s work is over. While game director Nate Fox tours Europe in order to promote the title, the rest of the Seattle-based studio's staff are busy beavering away on some...
Downloadable expansion will fill in the blanks
Just like Killzone: Shadow Fall before it, inFAMOUS: Second Son represents a new start for Sucker Punch’s superhero series. However, just because it’s moving to a fresh location and introducing a new protagonist in the process, that doesn’t mean that you should erase the events of the previous...
While the European commercial for inFAMOUS: Second Son depicts a more sombre mood, the title’s television spot in North America aims to paint protagonist Delsin Rowe in the most outrageous light possible. In addition to rowdy punk rock, the trailer shows the hero terrorising various Department of Unified Protection troops – all with an...
Wet and wild
Sony’s opting to keep inFAMOUS: Second Son very much under wraps, so you’re going to have to make do with videos like the one embedded below for the time being. Fortunately, while this footage features Russian voiceovers and some mostly aimless late night traversal, it’s still absolutely worth watching for the amazing visuals...
Smaller than you'd think
You’ll need to set aside 24GB of hard drive space on your PlayStation 4 in order to contain Sucker Punch’s intricate recreation of Seattle. The number was revealed courtesy of PlayStation France’s community coordinator PixelTux, who posted upcoming exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son’s final box art to the brand’s
Ethics have always played a pivotal part in Sucker Punch’s superhero series, but upcoming PlayStation 4 sequel inFAMOUS: Second Son will attempt to up the stakes by making you the architect of the entire cast's moral compass. Take protagonist Delsin Rowe down a dark path, and supporting stars such as the feisty Fetch will end up...
In addition to being an ace looking superhero escapade, inFAMOUS: Second Son is starting to sound a little bit like a tribute to developer Sucker Punch’s hometown. Not content with scanning the likenesses of real Seattle residents to populate the virtual streets of the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, the studio has also...
First-party outfit looking ahead
Sucker Punch may have successfully re-stoked the embers regarding its upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son at the Taipei Game Show last week, but with the superhero excursion now mere weeks away, the Sony subsidiary is starting to look to the future, too. A trio of job listings posted to the...
Cane you believe it?
We’re not entirely sure why it’s taken this long, as these PlayStation movies look like they’re going to prove a huge hit at the box office. Hot on the heels of last year’s surprise Ratchet & Clank reveal, production duo Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment are now taking a stab at the Sly Cooper...
Crime to go
Not content with the upcoming Ratchet & Clank and Heavenly Sword cinematic conversions, production double-act Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment has revealed that its busy beavering away on a theatrical debut for Sly Cooper and crew. The animated movie – which is due out in 2016 – will follow
Takes full advantage of the new hardware
inFAMOUS: Second Son may just be the most intriguing PlayStation 4 exclusive set to release over the coming months. Its stunning visuals, fascinating morality system, and
It’s probably a good thing that the PlayStation 4 isn’t a superhero, as we reckon that the supercharged device would resemble more than a match for inFAMOUS: Second Son’s plucky protagonist Delsin Rowe. A handful of launch titles have already demonstrated how much power lead architect Mark Cerny's packed into the next...
Now you Rowe
Sucker Punch may be hurriedly applying the finishing touches to PlayStation 4 escapade inFAMOUS: Second Son as we type, but the studio did have other ideas in mind. Responding to fan queries on Twitter, the company has pointed out that it considered creating a fresh franchise for Sony’s next generation system, but eventually found the...
Smoke and mirrors
Delsin Rowe, the star of upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son, may have already rubbed you up the wrong way with his sly smiles and irritatingly hip beanie hat, but just like previous protagonist Cole MacGrath, he remains something of a blank book. As with prior entries in the Sucker Punch produced property,...
Not the status Kuo
The morality system is undoubtedly the backbone of the inFAMOUS franchise, acting as a hub for both the story and the gameplay. Interestingly, a recent Official PlayStation Magazine interview with developer Sucker Punch has revealed that the series' newest entry may be seeing a few tweaks to the established formula. Don't expect...
Fresh from Sony's PlayStation 4 launch event in New York comes this typically stunning inFAMOUS: Second Son trailer, which features Delsin's neon powers all to the beat of Nirvana's Heart Shaped Box once again. Showcasing plenty of combat scenarios and some gorgeous looking cutscenes, we can already feel the hype building inside of...
The colours of the city lights
Our counterparts over in North America managed to get hands-on time with impending PlayStation 4 exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son at a launch event in New York City this week, leaving us banging our heads against the wall in irrational envy. Fortunately, we haven’t quite given ourselves concussion just yet, and have...
Ruby red and diamond white
Many assumed that the tease at the end of last week’s brand new inFAMOUS: Second Son trailer was pointing to familiar electrical powers, but developer Sucker Punch has clarified that Delsin Rowe will be dabbling with neon. Those of you that have been following the
Fresh from Sony's GamesCom conference comes this new inFAMOUS: Second Son trailer, that's full of cinematics and moody lighting. And the best part? You won't have to put up with the increasingly frustrating camera angles from the presser itself. The more we see of Delsin, the more that we think he's the kind of protagonist the...
Smoke and mirrors
Sucker Punch is a forward thinking studio. Just a year after releasing the original inFAMOUS, the team entered into negotiations with platform holder Sony about bringing its superhero series to the PlayStation 4. At the time, the outfit had just started work on the second game in the franchise, and it knew that it wanted to...
Not the best fit
Sucker Punch’s attempts to introduce user generated content into inFamous 2 were certainly well realised, but in a post mortem at GDC, co-founder Chris Zimmerman has revealed that the title may not have been the best fit for the features. As part of his presentation, Zimmerman stated that just 15% of inFamous 2 players actually...
Vampire-themed spin-off inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood is officially the fastest-selling PSN release ever, according to the US PlayStation Blog. The Move-enabled game was November's biggest selling download and the fastest-selling download to hit the PSN, though Sony didn't reveal any more specific details. Is the game actually any good,...
What do you get when you release a great product at the right time with a competitive price-point? Big sales, that's what -- and inFamous: Festival Of Blood is a testament to that philosophy
The bite-sized (pun intended) PlayStation Network standalone has become the fastest selling title in the PlayStation Network's history, topping the downloadable...
As rumoured earlier this morning, the Sly Cooper Collection is coming to the PlayStation Network
The high-definition re-release of the classic PS2 platformers will be available from Sony's digital store-front on November 29th. You'll be able to purchase the package as a trilogy for $29.99 or separately for $9.99 each. (Yes, it really is cheaper to buy them separately.) There are the perfect games..
Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time is undoubtedly one of our most anticipated PS3 releases of 2012
We're enormous fans of the Sly Cooper trilogy, and have been longing for a great mascot-driven platformer on PS3 since 2009's Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time. While Thieves In Time doesn't have series creator Sucker Punch at the helm, developer Sanzaru looks like its doing a bang-up job staying faithful..
And it's free
Enjoying rattling around a vampire-infested New Marais in inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood with your PlayStation Move? The good news is that next week you'll be able to grab a free update for inFAMOUS 2 that adds motion support to that game too. Expect the Move patch to be available in the middle of next week, and stay tuned for our review...
If you didn't get enough super-charged Cole McGrath earlier in the year with inFamous 2, then Sucker Punch has got a treat for you
Designed to tie-in with the Hallowe'en season, inFamous: Festival Of Blood sees the electric-powered protagonist bitten by a Vampire when New Marais is invaded by the toothy foes. The game's out in North America today for $7.99 and Europe tomorrow. If you're planning on..
Screens and facts inside too
You finally get to grapple with Cole McGrath and PlayStation Move next week, as Sony releases inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood on PlayStation Network this coming Wednesday. Now we have the game's final fact sheet, screenshots and trailer to get you all fired up. Festival of Blood is a standalone game in its own right rather...
PSN vampire download inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood is out soon, and you can pre-order it from the PlayStation Store now for just $9.99. PlayStation Plus members can get a further reduction on the price, bringing it down to a rather good $7.99. Remember you don't need either of the original inFAMOUS games to play Festival of Blood, but...
Move owners will be able to get a double helping of motion-controlled Cole in the coming months, as Sony has confirmed that the already-released inFAMOUS 2 and upcoming standalone game inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood will both include PlayStation Move support. The vampire-themed Festival of Blood takes place in a single night and doesn't...
Prepare for Hallowe'en in style this year, by watching inFamous protagonist Cole McGrath do his very best Twilight impression in inFamous 2: Festival Of Blood
The standalone downloadable title is due out October 25th in North America and October 26th in Europe. It'll cost you $14.99. Festival Of Blood sees Cole McGrath bitten by a vampire, and left...
Still playing around with inFamous 2's User Generated Content feature? A new update enables access to the game's biggest mini-bosses, the Titan and Devourer -- allowing you to craft your own mini-missions with the hulking enemies in tandem
Other additions include the ability to link your home-crafted stages together to create mini-campaigns, and a...
Sony and Sucker Punch has started to ramp up the hype for inFamous 2: Festival Of Blood -- the upcoming downloadable inFamous side-story -- by releasing one of the game's animated cut-scenes
The footage debuted at this weekend's PAX Prime, where attendees were treated to a panel on the creation of cut-scenes for the inFamous series. There's more information on the cut-scene creation process over on..
Sony likes splashing out on expensive truck liveries
A couple of years back it bought up some God Of War III advertising space on a couple of lorries, and now the platform holder's giving inFamous 2 protagonist Cole MacGrath a ride around mainland Europe. These trucks will be touring the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France over the coming months, so if you're in the..
Sucker Punch isn't hanging about now its a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony Computer Entertainment
The developer showcased a downloadable, standalone inFamous spin-off during Sony's GamesCom press conference earlier this evening, entitled inFamous 2: Festival Of Blood. The gothic, vampire-themed PSN title sees New Marais infested with vampires. When...
Sony may have bought inFamous developer Sucker Punch, but it's unlikely to have much of a change on the daily operations at the studio
Having worked closely with the PlayStation platform holder for over ten years, it's back to business as usual for Sucker Punch now that the deal has been made public. I dont think it will have much of an effect on our day-to-day operations, co-founder Chris..
What a story to wake up to on a dreary (but strangely humid) Tuesday morning. Sony has announced that it's acquired Sly Cooper and inFamous developer Sucker Punch, adding them to the platform holder's enormous roster of first-party developers. Sucker Punch are actually the 16th development house to join Sony's Worldwide Studios, and will develop content exclusively for Sony's platforms in the..
Sucker Punch has released the first -- of presumably many -- content packs for inFamous 2's user-generated content feature
The pack — which is available now for free from the PlayStation Network — includes a variety of vehicles from the game's single-player campaign, including Bertrands Limo, Bertrands Semi-Truck, the New Marais Police Car, the Ambulance, and a bike. To date, over 50,000..
It's not often that a PlayStation 3 exclusive tops the American sales charts, so let's all celebrate the news that Sucker Punch's inFamous 2 dominated the NPD software charts for the month of June
According to the latest NPD report, PlayStation continues to see growth in software with a strong demand for exclusive PlayStation 3 franchise titles, SCEA's Patrick Seybold gloated in a press..
inFamous protagonist Cole MacGrath's inclusion in Street Fighter X Tekken was announced at this year's E3 for both the PlayStation 3 and Vita versions of the cross-over brawler
Following up the announcement, Capcom's Seth Killian has told Siliconera that the "timing was right" for the inclusion and that the publisher is "excited" about the exclusive character. Discussions..
The studio behind inFamous and Sly Cooper is hiring for a new PS3 project
The Sucker Punch website notes that the American developer is looking for an art director, senior producer and lead sound designer to work on its next game. It's thought that the project will be a PlayStation 3 exclusive. There has been some rumours about Sucker Punch working on a new IP, but given the success of the inFamous..
Sony's confirmed that it will be releasing inFamous 2 via the PlayStation Network in Europe this Friday
Expect to pay £49.99 for the convenience. Before you jump into the comments moaning about rip-offs and what-not, Sony obviously can't undercut their retail partners for obvious reasons. Until one of the platform holders commits to going solely digital, you're going to continue to see..
The first inFamous 2 review is in, and it's unsurprisingly pretty positive
In his 9.0 review of the game, Colin Moriarty (beyond!) explains that Sucker Punch's super-charged sequel is "stronger than its predecessor". Moriarty concludes: "Nothing exists in inFamous 2 just because, and thats something developer Sucker Punch should be commended for. When combined with how..
We'd consider ourselves inFamous fans here at PushSquare, but we've decided against shelling out for the insanely expensive inFamous 2: Hero Edition
It's not that the set doesn't look cool — it genuinely does! — but more that we've learned our lesson when it comes to special editions. The God Of War III set was similarly attractive, and we bought it day one, only to leave it in the garage after..
Sucker Punch has taken to the PlayStation Blog to debut a brand new teaser trailer for the upcoming inFamous 2
The trailer is light on content, but it's just long enough to let you know that the Beast is coming. The Beast was teased at the end of the original inFamous, when Cole had a vision of the forceful entity that only he can stop. At the start of inFamous 2, Cole fails to destroy the Beast,..
In the nineties, every single electronics product was shipped in transparent plastic
We distinctly remember refusing to purchase PlayStation memory cards that weren't transparent. It was just cool at the time. Sony and Sucker Punch obviously feel its time to revive the timely fad, by releasing special European editions of inFamous 2 featuring an exclusive DualShock 3 in Crimson Red and Cosmic Blue..
We already know inFamous 2 is releasing on June 7th in North America, but what about Europe? SCEE's confirmed this afternoon that Sucker Punch's superhero adventure will launch June 8th in Europe and June 10th in the UK
There's a bunch of special editions available for the game, including the super-awesome "Hero" package which includes a replica of protagonist Cole McGrath's rucksack..
Heads up guys: inFamous 2 is out really soon
The sequel to one of our favourite games from 2009 is just around the corner, and this little narrative refresher is probably all you'll need to get hyped. Has anyone ordered the "Hero Edition"? We're super tempted by it. Looks like Play.com has the exclusive on it in the UK. You can grab it through here.
With all the drama surrounding the PlayStation Network, we're a little worried that inFamous 2 might be flying under the radar a touch
That's a big mistake because the game looks absolutely incredible. Admittedly we're not keen on the prospect of preorder bonuses, but we suppose that's the state of the industry now. There's a number of additional powers on offer depending on where you preorder your..
inFamous is one of our favourite games on the PlayStation 3
It's one of those titles that came out of nowhere, but the experience stuck with us for a long time. In an interview with Spong, Sucker Punch producer Brian Fleming has countered our positive opinion, stating the game was just "okay", a trait that has factored into its cult status. "I dont think we did ourselves any..
inFamous 2 might not be the most instantly obvious "Play Create Share" release, but some of the stuff that's possible in the game's level designer is absolutely wild
The PlayStation Blog's stuck up a short walkthrough of the feature that will allow players to create and share entire inFamous 2 missions online with others. The highlight of the video is footage of a Space Invaders clone that someone..
Man, we wished we were inFamous 2's Cole McGrath
Not only does he get to leg it around cities grinding on rails and telephone cables, but he also gets to star in slow motion trailers where he blows stuff up in slow motion to a killer guitar riff. Some guys get all the luck.</em>
Do you want to take a shot at designing your own inFamous 2 missions that could appear in the game when it releases in June? Of course you do right? You better pull up a chair and listen carefully then, Sucker Punch has some information to share
The inFamous 2 User Generated Content beta is due to go online in Europe and North America on April 12th. US hopefuls will need to register their interest..
We'd heard about an open-world game including "Play Create Share" features a long time ago, but we never clicked onto it being inFamous 2
But that's what Sucker Punch announced as part of GDC last night — a complete level editor. As development director Chris Zimmerman stated on the PlayStation Blog, "Sandbox games are a ton of fun. Theres a whole city to explore, and we provide lots of..
inFamous and Sly Cooper developer, Sucker Punch, has teased the announcement of a "big secret" at GDC today
In a Facebook status update the developer revealed, "Today is very exciting day. We've been holding a big secret for the last two years and at GDC later today... We get to tell you all about it." Sucker Punch has outright stated the announcement has nothing to do with Sly 4..
Despite the original inFamous charting third in our '09 game of the year round-up, and the sequel drawing huge acclaim in our hands-on preview last year -- we've been a little bit subdued regarding inFamous 2
None of the trailers released thus far have done much to make us stand-up and say, "Good grief, inFamous 2 is coming out!" This Duality trailer does exactly that. It depicts the..
Sony's just slapped a big fat June 7th North American release date on Sucker Punch's anticipated super-hero adventure, inFamous 2
No word on the European date yet, but there's no reason to expect much of a delay. SCEE's announced two special editions to coincide with the game's release in Europe, while SCEA's just got one. Europe's first special edition comes with a nicely packaged 3D lenticular..
"With great power, comes great responsibility," is one of the most famous lines in comic book history, so we understand why it's imperative inFamous 2 nails its morality system
The original game featured player choices, but they were very binary, and a bit mechanical. It's a criticism developers Sucker Punch have recognised, and gone some distance to try and correct with the sequel. "When we..
We often sit at our desk pondering, "Y'know what this work surface needs? A Cole McGrath statue
" Not really, but that's a brilliant lead-in. As discovered by the Examiner, Amazon has unwittingly revealed a collector's edition for inFamous 2. The "Hero Edition" — which leads us to believe there will be an "Antagonist Edition" too — includes a bunch of goodies, including..
The original inFamous had a heavy emphasis on the morality of your actions
Choices were binary and contrived, but the whole mechanic shaped the way the world responded to you as well as Cole's looks. In inFamous 2, Cole will need to make moral decisions once again, but this time they will be represented by character-driven dialogue and 3D mocap cut-scenes". Fancy press release jargon maybe,..
Can we get a hell-yeah? Sony's teased the inevitable release of Sly 4 in a sneaky teaser trailer hidden in the PlayStation 3 re-release of the Sly Cooper Trilogy
The teaser trailer doesn't reveal much (apart from looking bloody beautiful), but it finally confirms that a next-generation entry in the franchise is on the way. Speaking of which, the HD re-release of the Sly Cooper Trilogy is brilliant..
Sly Cooper's cutting it fine, but he's going to be around in time for Christmas
Sony's confirmed that the Sly Collection — which includes remastered versions of all three Sly Cooper titles and some bonus PlayStation Move mini-games — will launch across Europe from December 1st, with the UK getting the game on the 3rd. There's more information over on the PlayStation Blog. Apparen
Cole McGrath's gone through some changes
Apparently Sucker Punch just can't seem to satisfy their fan-base with inFamous 2's protagonist. Here's the issue: the most berated portion of the original inFamous was its protagonist. As much as we loved the game - Cole was rubbish. So Sucker Punch changed him. But people couldn't deal with the continuity issues. So Sucker Punch changed him back. Now..
The comic-book cut-scenes are back in inFamous 2
Only this time narrator Cole has got a new voice - a better voice. Aww c'mon, don't pretend like the last Cole's voice was good. It was gruff, generic and terrible. Now he's got a little more personality. This cut-scene is from the start of inFamous 2 when Cole arrives in New Marais. It's edgey just like the original inFamous cut-scenes. We..
The original inFamous was a success because of its silky smooth combat mechanics
They're still apparent in inFamous 2, though Sucker Punch has gone out of their was to improve the visual clarity of the open-world environment and up the number of combat mechanics at Cole's disposal. Our demo starts out with a bunch of super-natural goons for us to...
Get physical with Cole
Not so long ago, inFamous 2 was touted for Move support with a listing on the official Sony website, but that soon disappeared. It seems Sucker Punch is still investigating the controller's possibilities however, as an interview with HipHop Gamer uncovered. Sadly that's about all it uncovered, but if Cole's next adventure is...
inFamous 2 is going to be amazing based on the small snippets of the game we've seen
It doesn't need any extras to enhance that. However, one of the best things about the PlayStation 3 right now is the way it can support additional technologies - like PlayStation Move and 3D - that can enhance the experience for those who want it. According to an interview with the HipHopGamer, Sucker Punch are..
GameInformer's released some new footage of inFamous 2 and, bar some sound compression issues, it looks absolutely sensational. The combat looks as varied as ever - Cole can now pick up vehicles and lunge them at his foes - but it's the graphics engine that's been given the most polish. It looks incredible. Destructible environments, and stunning explosions only enhance the effect. Simply..
We already established that with the GamesCom trailer. And apparently his new model is already back and running in the game. This footage out of GamesCom is the same section of inFamous 2 we've seen before (note: it looks incredible), but it now features the old Cole character model. It's well worth watching again. Are you guys happy now? Can we get on with talking about th
There's a familiar face vying for your attention in this inFamous 2 trailer
Who is it? It's none other than Cole McGrath. You know, the one you remember. The one you fell in love with. The one from the original inFamous.
The PlayStation Blog's just uploaded a condensed version of Sucker Punch's Comic-Con panel from earlier this month
The panel goes into a lot of detail about the original inFamous' design process, aswell as tackling some hot-topics regarding the sequel. Interestingly, Sucker Punch dropped a "wait and see" line regarding PlayStation Move support and multiplayer, which a more speculative..
After checking out this comic-book cut-scene from inFamous 2, we're well and truly in the mood for some more electrified action
We'd forgotten just how well the animated story sequences set the game's tone. We'd also forgotten how gritty inFamous' universe is. It's a cool little cut-scene. Check it out.
Proof that developers do listen -- after the gigantic backlash aimed at the new-look Cole McGrath in inFamous 2, developers Sucker Punch have decided to switch back to something more in-line with the original character
Speaking from Comic-Con, IGN's PlayStation editor, Greg Miller, had the following to say on the changes to Cole's character design: "I cant tell you exactly what he looks..
You've got to love Sony's "Classics" line
Take the latest in the set — the Sly Cooper Collection. Officially priced at $40, the package is an absolute steal. For your money you get three classic titles upgraded into high-definition (and 3D), some PlayStation Move mini-games and three Platinum Trophies.
