- SCEA Associate Product Marketing Manager Chuck Lacson
has announced the official InFamous 2 PS3 release date, pre-orders details and Hero Edition today.
To quote: We are happy to announce that inFAMOUS 2 will be launching in North America exclusively on the PlayStation 3 on June 7th, 2011!
In about 4 months, players will finally begin the next chapter in Cole's adventures.
On top of this, we'd love to confirm that on that same day we are also launching the inFAMOUS 2 HERO Edition (aka the Best Kept Secret EVER) for $99.99 (msrp).
Short of actual electrical super powers, the HERO Edition delivers everything an inFamous fan could want including a highly detailed 8.5" Cole MacGrath statue, a sportable sling pack modeled after Cole's own in-game gear, the inFAMOUS #1 mini comic from DC Comics
, the official inFAMOUS 2 HERO Edition Soundtrack and a super voucher code for a collection of in-game content.
Starting today participating retailers kick off official pre-order programs letting you score one of the following bonus items listed below.
24K GOLD AMP
Cole's nasty new weapon definitely delivers the pain, but when you pre-order at Amazon.com
you can get a gold (in-game) version to dish it out in style.
Experience inFAMOUS 2 as Cole's super-powered nemesis from the first inFAMOUS story if you pre-order from Best Buy.
GameStop fans can unlock this special power with their pre-order, an electro-kinetic tether that lets you snare and pull enemies and objects towards Cole.
Visit Walmart and pre-order to get powerful grenade that ties enemies down with arcing electricity before going BOOM.
Music lovers can download the official musical soundtrack to Cole's latest adventure if they pre-order from participating retailers.
Hope this is exciting news for everyone. Look out for more great updates to come, both on INFAMOUSTHEGAME.com
or right here on the PS blogosphere!
