I don’t know if this is good or bad news to be honest, Sony has announced over the easter weekend that the upcoming PS3 exclusive, sandbox, electrically enticing inFamous has received a release date push and is now going to be hitting the American shelves on the 26th May.
And presumably ours around the same time.
This is about a month ahead of schedule which doesn’t happen often and to me smacks of them being scared of Prototype. If they were confident that they had the better game then they could use the extra month to polish the game up some more and really ensure that they hit the market with the best game they could.
It was only a couple of weeks ago that Eurogamer released that preview which implied the game wasn’t really finished yet which makes this even more surprising.
I am pretty terrible at choosing which games are going to be great but maybe my knack is knowing which games are going to be bad. inFamous is going to be okay but will quickly be eclipsed by Prototype.
