    This game looks like its coming along splendidly. I look forward to playing as a new conduit. Cole Macgrath was a beast on the PS3. I think its time for another beast for the PS4

    • SuperLuigi

      Lol a beast. More like “the beast” in a certain cutscene. ;-)

      • True Gamer

        lol I tried not to spoil it for those who may not have beaten both sides yet haha. Never know. But I know what you mean. I cant imagine what type of boss fights Second Son has in stored.
        The presentation alone is incredible. I wonder, is there any information on the timeline of this game’s setting, such as before or after Cole Macgrath’s story?

        • SuperLuigi

          It is confirmed after the good ending of infamous 2. Several years have past and conduits are looked down on since “the Cole McGrath incident”.

          • True Gamer

            Oh wow I thought that all of the conduits in existence lost there powers with the usage of the Ray Sphere. lol I was wondering how they would tie this entry in without using the results of the bad ending. But hell that’s even better

            • SuperLuigi

              Ya they haven’t fully explained why there are still conduits besides the ray sphere didn’t do it’s job right for everyone.

              • usagi_san

                The RFI did kill the conduits just those that had their powers active at the time. Secondly, the RFI might of also caused the dormant ones to awaken, I think.

    Now we just need an inFamous on PS Vita and we’ll be all set. >:D

    This looks awesome.

  • McPoo

    This looks great, I am a little wary after InFamous 1 and 2 though.

  • 罪罰

    I wanna touch that controller ://3

  • DarthBrian

    I got to use the controller at Comic-Con and it’s a pretty damn good controller. Felt like a DualShock but not like a DualShock if that make sense. :p

    Did you guys see the magma red and wave blue controllers?! I´m gonna buy both! Gonna play this game with magma red! I can´t wait to see his other powers.

  • usagi_san

    That touchpad feature is going to be really awesome, depending on how the devs utilise it. From the vid, Sucker Punch seem to have used it very well. The smoke powers are right up my street – quick, fluid motions. Delsin is going to be fun to play with.

    That controller is shaping up to be very awesome.
