If you're a PlayStation newsletter subscriber (you should subscribe to our newsletters first, but whatever), you've already seen the announcement that a free Cole costume for your PlayStation Home avatar will be unlocked via the inFamous demo. But a lot of people are asking: when?
Well, PlayStation LifeStyle has noted the rash of questions that hit the PlayStation Home forums and thankfully, Community Manager Locust_Star was able to help out. See, the key is to be patient. Not enough gamers today are patient enough; they're not willing to wait for things to happen, you know?
"Regarding the Cole costume: It will not unlock until after the game is released. It won’t unlock day and date with the release, but likely within a week it will appear in user’s inventories. This delay, of course, is not ideal but I think most people won’t mind being patient as long as they know that it is coming. Any help in spreading that word is appreciated."
So the good news is that the newsletter wasn't lying to you; there really will be a Cole costume for Home. The bad news is you won't be able to snag it today or immediately upon release, so you'll just have to wait and bite your nails or something. We figure you should be happy with the game's launch, anyway; the game is pretty freakin' awesome. Another great PS3 exclusive! Just remember, if you want access to this, you're going to need to download and play that demo…as if it takes a lot of convincing.
