It appears that the price of InFamous has dropped to $39.99. That’s one heck of a deal considering the game came out earlier this year. If you haven’t picked it up, you’re missing out on a great game. It’s definitely one of the best superhero games out there.
Also, as pictured above, there’s a new Super Power you will be able to use called Gigawatt Blades. This DLC will be made available on the PlayStation Network on December 10th at the low, low price of Free. Here’s what the upgrade does:
The Gigawatt Blades supercharge Cole’s arm into blades of pure energy which can be used to cause massive damage against enemies during melee combat.
Also, the soundtrack is available at Sumthing Else Music Works retail outlets and available for digital purchase at sumthingdigital.com.
Here’s a good line up of some of the deals that can be found during Black Friday weekend. Highlights include Dragon Age $35, GTA4 $20, Brutal Legend $35, NfS:Shift $35 and a $10 gift card with CoD:MW2 or Assassin’s Creed 2. Also Game Fly members get a $10 coupon on Used or Keep games. Via Yahoo
It looks like Sony will, indeed, be offering bundles (at least in the UK) for the PS3, featuring 250GB hard drives (the Final Fantasy XIII bundle was already confirmed for Japan). They will start showing up on October 1st (which is when the PSP Go also launches). The first bundles to show up will vary between multiple titles, including one that comes with two Greatest Hits titles and the other will be an inFamous bundle (for those of you who haven’t played inFamous, it’s really good!).
On October 16th, an Uncharted 2 bundle will hit shelves (day and date with the actual game release) and a couple days later on the 19th, the Blu-Ray movie pack will be made available, which also includes a Blu-Ray remote and a copy of both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Dark Knight. Also, according to a press release from yesterday, there will also be FIFA 10 and Need for Speed: Shift bundles. The bundles will go on sale for GBP 284.99. As far as why Sony decided to come out with these bundles, they stated:
Following the great success of the new, smaller, 120GB PS3, which sold over one million units in its first three weeks on sale, the 250GB model has the same hardware specifications as the current model, but with greater storage space, to offer consumers even more choice.
No word on whether or not any bundles will hit the states, though.
Infamous has signed a 7 digital deal with screenwriter Sheldon Turner (The Longest Yard remake, Up in the Air). Avi Arad and Ari Arad (The Incredible Hulk, Ironman, Uncharted) will also be producing Infamous.
Sheldon Turner comments on how he is excited and that this is the future of gaming “What excites me the most about the game was it was the first of which I’ve come across that had a big idea and a character arc.” “It is, I believe, the future of gaming. The game, while big and fun, is at its core a love ballad to the underachiever, which is what our hero, Cole McGrath is.”
I never play through a game twice unless the game was incredible. Not even achievements made me play through the game twice, because well, those are usually for only one playthrough anyway. That was all and dandy until trophies hit.
At first for me, they did nothing except for me to go back and play the game a different way than usual. And I could never finish an old fashioned RPG, and that’s my favorite genre. (Excluding the kingdom hearts series, and we’ll see with demons souls.) The way trophies changed replayability is this, it makes you play the game over again until you get the final ding.
For example, right now I’m playing through inFAMOUS and I have all the dead drops and i’m 40 shards away to having all of them. I’m pretty thrilled. Another example is Resistance 2, when you have to go back and play it through 3 times to get that platinum(which in fact to me is a bit ridiculous.)
And I also believe LittleBigPlanet changed it in a way also, by Play Create Share, instead of having to just play the story, you get people making more levels at your disposal. Or you can create your own, I don’t know how they do it in fact. So tell me, did anything change your way of gaming?
