It's gonna be bad-ass . It just is.

We've been waiting on a launch date for inFamous 2 and Sucker Punch has finally delivered: as announced at the PlayStation Blog , the next Cole installment will release in North America on June 7! Plus, they've revealed the jam-packed HERO Edition, which will retail for $99.99 and net you the following goodies:

Lastly, the pre-order incentives have been revealed; you can nab a 24k gold version of the Amp if you drop your cash at Amazon.com, a Kessler Skin if you pre-order from Best Buy, the Lightning Hook special power if you put down a deposit at GameStop, the Electrocution Grenade for pre-ordering at Wal-Mart, and the soundtrack from other "participating retailers." I'm goin' with GameStop.

This game is almost guaranteed to be one of the most entertaining titles of the year. So loved the first one.

HiramJ said (In todays thread concerning KZ3 updates),

"I think i'll wait till a pricedrop then. I ain't gonna buy a game for sixty dollars then have to update said game every other week."

Make an excuse to complain about KZ3 and stick to it, ok? And stop contradicting yourself. Are you not getting it, or are you getting it at pricedrop? And do you hate exclusives, or do you like all games? Are you a fanboy now because you like inFamous… an exclusive?

Look, when you single out the regulars here, and attack people without even reading what they wrote, as you did to me in the NPD article where everyone is against you if you haven't checked, you can expect people to call you out when you contradict yourself. I know I'm watching.

Also, I realize Jawknee noticed the "frist" thing, but that's a typo. I was bothered by "tryed"…

Lastly, "and now i see why thes FPS are so popular. all you do is sit there and press the R1 button and the up or down button to move. LAME, I can do that with my eyes closed."

Well… I can see why you favor ME2 so much… /sarc/

"its a RPG with 3rd person shooter elements"

Actually its the other way around but that's okay. You have been wrong about everything since you started posting on this site. Whats one more?!

categorization order is hardly an effective argument here, hiram. gonna have to do better than that.

fact is nearly everything these days is a blah blah blah with RPG elements sooooo gonna go with jawknee on this one.

personally i cant think of many modern games that are rpgs first and foremost, even fewer with the mainstream draw ME2 has.

Once again, you did not read most of what I wrote.

If you did, then respond to it if you plan to post.

Seriously, you're welcome to post and be friends here. By all means! But please, for the love of all that is good in the world… stop contradicting yourself.

You criticize people for liking exclusives, and show dissent to people for not approving of certain types of games, when they did no such thing. Then you turn around and bash shooters because all you do is point and shoot while moving…

Then, you think you're somehow making great arguments in a conversation, when in fact for you, it's completely one sided as you continue to IGNORE everything I have said while clinging to something extremely small on the outskirts of my comment.

Do you not think that MAYBE you might garnish more respect from people if you would actually address everything I have said to you? I addressed every single point YOU have made to completion! Every time! You haven't even skimmed the surface of what I say.

Do you not see how frustrating that is for me to argue with someone as unfocused as you are being right now?

And what's all this ME2 is an RPG arguing you're doing? You're not even staying on topic here! I just called you out on a multitude of things! Do you think that by ignoring my final remarks in other posts, I'll somehow forget who you are in other threads? Like your other posts never happened?

No! It's pretty easy to remember, and it's super simple to reference. Publishing your thoughts on the internet make it really easy for me to go back and show you, WORD FOR WORD, how you've contradicted yourself over and over.

Now… please… if you are truly as clever as you believe yourself to be… respond to my posts IN THEIR ENTIRETY, as I have done for you.

Sweet collector's edition. Really like the Cole style back pack. Should be D1P for me too if I'm not done with KZ3 and LA Noire by then

Yes! Can't wait to pick this up. This might sound blasphemous, but I am more excited for Infamous 2 than Uncharted 3. *Gasp*. Infamous was just so much fun, and it has a special place in my heart.

WorldEndsWithMe

I am too. *looks around*

MyWorstNightmar

Hmmm, well it seems natural. Infamous came out before Uncharted 2, so your Drake fix got scratched recently.

I already know Naughty Dog can deliver a great Uncharted game since they've done it twice. I am really interested to see if Sucker Punch can deliver a great sequel. The first one felt like a fresh experience, will the second feel as fresh with the new enhancements they are making, or will it feel stale. The new look and voice of Cole has me a bit concerned, but I will remain optimistic. Can't wait. Makes me want to play the first again, and *shudder* look for all the shards!

Exactly. Uncharted 2 made sure my Uncharted itch stays away for a bit. Looking forward to inFamous 2. One of my most anticipated games this year. I will play inFamous again too right before it comes out. I skip looking for all the shards now since I already have platinum. Don't really need all of them to beat the game.

That's a lot of different pre-order incentives. I hope they're all unlockable at some point, or everyone's missing out. Unless you buy like 6 copies.

leatherface

all the incentives are included in the Hero edition. it will be cheaper to get that rather than 6 copies lol

I guess that's what that voucher code is for then huh? Makes sense why Amazon is only offering the Gold Amp with the regular edition.

Will definitely be picking up this version. Specially since it's only $100 and I would love the statue. I'll also be preordering mine at Gamestop.

June?
Just enough time to save up money!!

Damn man I got one PS3 exclusive(must buys) to get almost every month now.
February for Killzone 3.
March for Motorstorm.
April for SOCOM 4.
June for inFAMOUS 2.
September for Resistance 3
November for Uncharted 3.

And we still don't have a release date for TLG, Twisted Metal and Ico Collection yet.
Add all these to some other multiplats I'm getting.
Man I'm gonna be so broke.

Bummer, those who want to preorder through Amazon, you only get the 24k gold version of the Amp if you preorder the regular edition of the game. The Hero Edition doesn't come with any preorder incentive other than release day shipping for 99 cents.

MyWorstNightmar
MyWorstNightmar

I think that is because the HERO edition comes with all the stuff already.

Note that the HERO edition will have a voucher code for a collection of in-game content.

I have never before purchased a special edition, but I might actually do it this time. Let's face it, how cool would I look with that sling pack?
I want the one in inFamous 1 too, funny though my backpack is pretty close.

I said I wouldn't be buying any new games for myself again, however Infamous is one of my favorite games, superhero, check, lightning powers, check, great all around, check.

This will be the one game I buy myself not only day 1, but I'm pre-ordering this hero edition if I have to sell plasma every week from now until June.

So I'm confused. Do we get the store bonus and soundtrack? or is the soundtrack also a bonus for other stores? RDR pre-order got me the soundtrack and deadly assassin DLC, hope this is the same. Either way, Infamous 2 is mines. Infamous 1 was crazy fun, this look better in every way. No special edition for me though…those material item will sit in my closet doing nothing, just like my sneaker collection…learned my lesson…lol

I want the lightning hook, so I'm going with the Gamestop pre-order. I'm not sure about the CE yet.

If you decide to get the Hero's Edition it should come with all the preorder incentives.

Yeah, I guess I overlooked the voucher for in game content. I could order it from Amazon instead of Gamestop.
