inFamous to electrify us earlier than expected; pre-order and demo details
Bucking the old trend of PS3 games missing release dates like Nicolas Cage misses his career, the guys over at the official PS blog have announced some good news that should dispel any Monday blues you may be experiencing.
Sucker Punch have decided that, as we’ve all waited patiently enough, inFamous will not be released in June as expected but is now due out in NA on May 26th.
And that’s not all. The guys have also revealed numerous pre-order bonuses that are on offer for early adopters. Do you want access to the demo two weeks before the rest of the gaming public? Are inFamous themed Home outfits your bag? What about an exclusive power unlocked within the game?
First on offer is the the Gigawatt Blade, available to those who pre-order the game from GameStop.
Asad Qizilbash, Marketing Manager at SCEA, describes the exclusive weapon as follows:
The Gigawatt Blades supercharges Coleâ€™s arm into an instrument of destruction unmatched by any other melee weapon in game. Although very powerful, youâ€™ll still have to use this weapon wisely, as it takes a considerable drain on your powers.
Or, if exclusive in-game weapons are not your thing and you’d rather dress up like a member of the Reaper gang and terrorise fellow Homers, pre-order the game from Amazon and the threads seen below are yours.
Finally, if you’d rather get access to the demo earlier than everyone else (Asad confirms that a PSN demo of inFamous will be available one week before the game’s release date making the 21st of May the likely candidate), simply order the game from Best Buy or GameCrazy and start frying people from a safe distance from May 7th.
