Sony inFamous Interview

Sony talks to Sucker Punch to reveal the new CES details on their upcoming project.

Sony's official blog tossed up this nice interview with Sucker Punch's Brian Fleming on the subject of inFamous. Specifically, they detail some new story stuff, show off some gameplay footage, and even talk a bit about how the presentation Fleming gave during the show was tailored for CES's more mainstream tech audience. They even briefly touch on Sly Cooper. It's interesting on all levels, so check it out:

  


Yes, inFamous is continuing to look pretty hot. And Jeff Rubenstein is absolutely right... that shock-powered dive-bomb ground stomp thing looks like a lot of fun. Check out some more of the game in motion with this just-released trailer:

Spring I think.

Jeff please could you hit them up with an exclusive interview and ask them why I'm not excited for this game. Thanks.

I'm not going to lie, that game is looking pretty legit. Still, it's all about Prototype! :D

awesome i cant wait for this game

Posted by Pibo47

Hmmm.......now im not so sure about this game. I was exspecting more crackdown (which i fucking LOVE). I'll take prototype.

To be honest, aside from the power dive and the lightning grenades, it's looking kind of boring. it's like all the cool super powers were taken so this guy has the power of massive static electricity. I also agree, prototype is looking more appealing.

Posted by precog13

I dunno. It looks like something I should be excited about, but the gameplay leaves me feeling underwhelmed. To me the biggest issue seems to be that your attacks don't do very much damage to the bad guys. It seems like you need to shock the living bejesus out of a guy to make him stay down.

This is looking to stomp Prototype.

Edited by NinjaHunter

I personally think that Prototype shows better but this looks more polished and could be funner to play.

Cant wait for this game. Why the fuck are bitches hatin?

prototype looks plain compared to infamous

Posted by marcio1986

Infamous may look good but seems to me that this shoking gameplay will get boring very fast, the plot looks a bit weak and like the dude in the vid said this game is all about running around exploring the environment and if that is really true i'm afraid Infamous won't so famous after all.

Posted by Coleslaw893

Man I can't wait. I love Sucker Punch for making one of my favorite series of all time, Sly Cooper. Day one purchase for me.

DEFINATLY looks way better than prototype.

Posted by TwoOneFive

This game looks good. But if you have seen any other videos, they've been very tight lipped about the details. But everytime they say something new its really interesting and cool. 

All things aside, this will definitely be better than prototype, that game looked very gimmicky. 
Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw

This game looks electrifying.

Shocking, even.  I watched the video, and it was like I was simultaneously given a jolt or a zap.  This kind of current feels like greased lightning!

At first I was thinking "this looks a lot like a super hero version of Uncharted", but it moves faster and those last few moments of the vid are raw-some!

Consider my interest peaked.

Posted by Branthog

So far, I have zero interest in this game and the other game that is impossible to differentiate from it. I constantly get Prototype and Infamous confused for one another. Another thing they both have in common is they will not live up to the hype and they'll end up in the bargain bin Haze-style. I can not tell you how uninspired I am by these two titles.

the energy grenade things look like they bounce too far off the ground, they were bouncing past the enemies and no doing much damage when they exploded. (1:45 in the video)

Posted by JoblessTerence

When I saw the first trailer for this game at E3, I thought it looked like a darker version of Crackdown because, if I remember correctly, the guy was jumping ridiculously high and doing things that resembled Crackdown. Now that I see the game play footage, this looks like an even shittier version of Fracture because of the game focusing around the gimmick of using electricity as a weapon. 

Is the electric bolt your only weapon? Are those guys in the red jumpsuits your only enemies (minus the bosses)? Do you have any other super powers?

Posted by Jayzilla

while this game looks amazing, i can't help but thinking that it is going to be an 8-12 hour, 1-player(with no multi-player mode) only experience. Am i wrong for being bummed about that?

game has potential

I'm kind of unsure where I stand on this game. It looked almost like BLACK in a sense that if there are a group of enemies, you can just shoot a conveniently located car/barrel/whatever to blow them up. That's not to say explosions are cool, but the explosions in this game are very... "meh." That spammable zap attack also has an annoying sound to it.

Posted by makari

The animation for the bnb zap attack looks really awkward. Do his powers require him to wave goodbye for them to work? I'm pretty sure his arm would get way tired holding it out like that all the time.

Posted by LiquidPrince

Reminds me a bit of Force Unleashed...

Edited by Duckbutter

if Sucker Punch wants to feed their little bastard children then they'd better release InFamous on a date far from Prototype's release. Prototype looks like it'll be fun for 2 weeks before you get tired of it but ain't nobody ain't gonna be not buyin no InFamous while no Prototype be out, know what ahm sayin? games cost $60. most people that gotta make a choice are gonna go with Prototype because its got the cooler lookin, faster character with more powers and gore. InFamous may be a better game but that just don't matter.

I think Prototype looks just as boring as this. They're both gimmicky and urgh... I still don't get it yet.

Having said that, IGN recently wrote a preview for inFamous that was like, one of the most positive hands-on articles I've ever read. They seemed super-duper stoked about it.

Posted by Tiberium

The gameplay looks nice, but it looks like it will get boring without guns. lightning lightning , force push.

Posted by RawShark

Prototoype looks, how should I say it, more epic that inFamous. But inFamous seems to have a far more personal combat experience. Like, in Protoype, you'll smash up a city block. In inFamous, you'll smash up a street. But both fights will looks cool. I dunno. I quite like the look of inFamous, but I'm more exicited about Prototype.

Crackdown + The Force Unleashed = InFamous?
