Many are wondering if Sucker Punch will give us another inFamous . I'm here to tell you that it's basically inevitable.

There are several obvious pieces of evidence that point towards inFamous 3 : firstly, Sony almost never fails to support top-quality franchises, even those that don't always generate blockbuster installments. Secondly, although one could make the argument that Sucker Punch defines its legacy with Sly Cooper, the current truth of the matter is that inFamous put them on the map this generation. They are now esteemed, respected, and what may be infinitely more important in this big-business industry, recognized. Thirdly and lastly, Sony understands the need for AAA exclusives, as they are indeed hardware sellers.

There's almost no doubt that Sucker Punch will continue to expand, and they'll try new things. In fact, it seems they're working on an all-new IP right now. But there's little to no chance they won't return to inFamous at some point. Having the original title hit the way it did is like striking gold for such a studio; it opens doors that weren't open before but despite new possibilities, smart development teams don't forget the trigger. And if Sucker Punch seems like they might forget, I'm fairly certain Sony will remind them.

Why not? Now I have an urge to spoil it. If you don't want to get spoiled go get inFAMOUS 2 now.

cLoudou,

Ha, I haven't gotten it yet either, due to New Jersey's super-cheap-skate unemployment checks.

But if you wire me $65 for inFamous2, I'll have that receipt out to you first thing tomorrow morning, 10:01 sharp.

They did leave some plot hooks (no spoilers, but they did have significant characters who survived the first but not even mentioned in the sequel, besides a few glimpses in the intro).

Yeah, there are a few open pieces to the story, but the endings to inFamous 2 just felt so… final. I'll be interested to see how they expand the series into a trilogy while keeping with the endings.

**SPOILERS FOR THE ORIGINAL**

They could always have you playing as Kessler, gaining your powers later and fleeing from the Beast, beating down Alden to take control of the First Sons, then carrying through with all of the fleshing out that was done in the seqiel, then bring it up to the detonation. Or they could have you playing as an all new Conduit in a storyline that overlaps with Cole's tale. Even without the Cole we know as the lead, there are quite a few ways to take it.

**END SPOILERS**

Regarding both endings, seems like they left them open, too. Though, I don't want to dwell too much and potentially give away something.

@ Lawless

Yes a prequel game was exactly what I was thinking the other day. Hopefully we'd have more of Kesslers stronger abilities that we saw in the final boss fight of the original. I can already see the dodge roll mechanic changed to a teleportation/dash like ability. You could still do karmic choices for sure even though Kessler may have been too weak to fight the beast (emotionally and physically) he always had the good intentions for you to save the world from the beast.

**SPOILERS**
You're right on that Kevinater, but I was trying to imply a side-story, rather than a follow-up. Playing as someone like Nix or Kuo, or even John how their story interacts with Cole's.

Teddie, you also have to thinkthat there is quite a bit that went on with Kessler that we don't already know about. We have a rough idea of the things that he did, but that only goes so far. At the same time, I feel that it would be a regression. I mean, it would ultimately lead back to the way the original was done with your Karma having no impact on the end… unless they decided to splinter the timeline further, have Kessler decide not to detonate it, or rather use it again on himself, and then who knows where it could go?

I'm glad that they're taking a break from it, regardless of how good the games are. Then again, I really like what idea that, with the break from Sly to do inFamous, Sanzaru actually went to Sony to ask to be allowed to do Sly 4. It speaks to me that even if SP doesn't want to do iF3, then Sony will outsource it to another competent, willing developer. And, if Sly 4 is any indication, SP will be there to help with development, as they are with Sanzaru.

Seriously, how could Sony even think of letting inFamous finish? I only wonder how they'll thread the two endings together, or if they'll follow one of the two…
Peace.

Woo hoo! There'd better be an Infamous 3.

Infamous 2 has been my favorite game so far this year.
And I now officially joined the Infamous 2 platinum club.

That's right suckers! Bow down before my awesome'ness

… that's what we do, right? When we get platinum trophies? Gloat about it and try to earn everyone's respect; yet, instead, you're looked at as a moronic fool who has too much free time on your hands.

hmmm oh well.

WOOT! Infamous 2 plat. right here! BOOYA! look at me

Is it really that easy to get the inFamous 2 platinum? That's all I've been hearing. When I finally can afford to get inFamous 2, I'll be happy to snag the platinum, heck inFamous 1 wasn't so bad.

I was almost positive that a 3rd installment was coming but I think I might be more excited for this new IP they are suppose to be working on.
With a team like Sucker Punch, It's almost guaranteed that it will be great.

I would love another Infamous, Infamous 1 was good, but Infamous was mind blowing too say the least, but just like my man above…how can they based on the conclusion (well the good version, haven't completed the bad version yet). I definitely respect SP, so come on…give us somemore greatness

Yo FM and Kai I know you guys might not think it is, but your comments are spoilers. You may not give away any specifics, but you are both saying just enough to plant ideas in someone's head who either hasn't played or hasn't completed the game yet.

You had made a comment like this earlier in the week before I finished the game. And the exact thing I had imagined happening did happen.

I started doing it once I saw everyone else writing down the same thing so don't try to put me out there homie as a spoilers. Nothing I said was a spoiler at all, you just made it up in your mind what you thought it was. I don't explain anything at all. And once you start the game, the ending is in a way predictable so yeah.

Infamous 2 will not happen unless it's not in the present timeline.
Infamous 2 was an Epic Conclusion to the series on both good and bad so.
Making another Infamous will just ruin the story.
Sucker Punch make another PS3 Exclusive Series please.

Sucker Punch needs to come out with Sly Cooper and a new IP to get the ball rolling. InFamous 3, cool, love 1 and 2…just make it ALL happen. I want new games from a company that makes them awesome, period.

I would love to have Infamous 3 but like others have said SP really painted themselves in a corner with the Infamous 2 endings and I'm not sure how they would continue the story without cheapening those endings.

i hope so, but i doubt it.
why would you close it of so tight if you wanted to continue it?
your not going to welding the lid shut to a milk bottle if you want to open it tomorrow now are you?
they could star a different character in a different environment with different powers, but that wont work.
its like GOW without kratos, might as well do it as a new IP.

there doing a new IP now anyway, so by the time thats finished and out the ps4 will be out so if they do infamous 3 it would be a ps4 launch title.
if they do infamous again, please for the love of god bring back the old power set!
no more of this 10 different types of a single power, and actually make the upgrades useful.
thats what i hated about infamous 2, the upgrades if anything feel like downgrades!
like the megawatt hammer, in the original you had a damage upgrade, a tracking upgrade and a cluster upgrade.
all very useful, and all able to combine in 1 rocket.
in 2 though you have a tracking upgrade but it has a lower damage and area of effect, a chain so enemies cant dive out of the way, and a cluster but homing on one enemy again less damage and less area.
in the original all were massively helpful, in 2 quite the opposite.
they give with one hand, and take away with the other.
wheres the fun in that?
but they really spoiled it with the powers themselves, before you could have a cluster rocket, homing rocket, and higher damage all in one rocket!
now you have to choose.
do you want the rocket that does more damage?
or the one that clusters?
or the one that has a line attached?
the original gave you your cake, and let you eat it too.
2 though gives you your cake, but no eating shes only for looking!
wheres the fun in that?
🙁

i would just like to point out that there is a reason why the game is called infamous and not "the good guy.

SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The good guy ending was very definitive yes, but IMO they need to arc toward the evil ending where regular human's die and conduits are created. I think this would be awesome if this could be pulled off in an open world environment. After that, you could still use the duality system but offer the player a chance at redemtion verses just having them on the fence when you start a new game. After that you should be able to recruit fellow conduits allowing for some sweet XMen style gameplay… possibly Co op with kuo which woulkd be neat. Plus there is that merc group vermak 88 that could add some interesting story telling to the plot….

HAHA…Deadman tried to say I said spoilers in an earlier post…now this is a spoiler filled post…lol Thank God I played the game already.

Seriously though, I think its too hard to continue the story and even improve upon the already fantastic gameplay. I say, leave it at two and move on unless SP can top inFamous 2.

Well, from what I have played of Infamous 2 – the demo anyway – it seems excellent. So of Sucker Punch go for it, why the hell not!?! They can only make it even better.

I have to admit – and please don't thumb me down for this – but I really like the way the Gears engine handles the 3rd person perspective. I like the way Epic games have done their camera, and the focal length used. There is just something very smooth about Gears. I hope Sucker Punch err closer to the way they have done Gears… from an engine perspective, but retain the Infamous feel they are so famous for 🙂

I will pick up Infamous 2 up some time in the future. At the moment my pennies are going for Killzone 3 (yes, still to get it), Battlefield 3 and Uncharted 3 – If I feel like spending more I may pick Dirt3 or Formula 1 2011… just depends…

Bring on Infamous 3 though, with further improvements it can only get better…

Q!

IDKY but I'm having a hard time getting into I2 after being SO immersed in LA Noire. It's tough switching gears right now. I'm sure I will at some point, but, I'm on my 3rd play through of LA Noire and the more I play it the more I understand the nuances of the game.

Is anyone else having problems getting the hang of the aiming on I2? I stink at it for some reason and I really didn't do badly on I1. Kinda stinks that the baddies have longer range weapons than Cole does…been killed several times without knowing where I was getting hit from! 😛

I've only played the good ending but I think Infamous 3 should be where Cole didn't die but his powers just went dorment but when he awakens the whole earth is on the brink of destruction and Cole must learn all new powers from the beginning and learn what is behind the destruction of the earth

***EXTREME SPOILER***

Well if I remember correctly, the Evil ending shows that Cole MacGrath lives, and the Good ending shows a lighting bolt hit Cole's coffin (possible revival?). They could continue the Evil side by having Cole team up with other conduits in between missions like Kuo and the final boss could be like a big reveal from Cole's past. Since each game takes place in different cities, maybe the third could take place in like LA or Los Vegas. Just some suggestions.
