    Short InFamous trailer revealed at Spike TV tonight:
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player/36317.html

    Shows lightning bolts, kinetic punches and free roaming. I guess they are going to show more tomorrow.

    EDIT: Q&A from IGN: http://ps3.ign.com/articles/889/889368p1.html

    Didn't know what the game is about. Now I do.
    The destructible game world should be a draw for some.

    This game is for me one of the best things seen at this E3. Graphics seems to be vastly improved compared to last year and for what we have seen so far about the gameplay it looks fun to play as well!

    Looks pretty neat. Kind of a hybrid of Force Unleashed and Assassin's Creed.

    INFAMOUS LIVE DEMO:

    Yes you can climb up any building and along any ledges, you can climb up any light pole and basically balance on top of it. You can blow up cars and stuff.[​IMG]

    I sure hope we can climb anything, like in assassins creed (well virtually better). Also hope that the "destructible environment" is really destructible, so you can raze buildings and stuff.

    Because destructible environment gets thrown alot these days, i say not until your atleast at BF:BC level you can say you have destructible environment.

    Shooting at pillars and seeing them take a slight bumb, isn't destructible in my book.

    Looks cool. Crackdown is similar (free roaming superhero) and was fun, this looks more interesting in my book.

    Is this a first-party/second-party game?

    Never heard of Sucker Punch but apparently some of the people worked on Sly Cooper?

    So it sounds like they transitioned from platformers to action-adventure/superhero type of game.

    But a totally new character instead of one based on known properties. Maybe if they made Spiderman games this way. Or do something with the TV show Heroes.

    Sucker Punch is a 1st party dev, and yes, they developed the Sly Cooper series of games for the PS2.

    Yeah, i kinda dont get why people dont put more effort into movie-based games. The marketing and branding is allready there, if somebody would make a really really good spiderman game for example it would sell amazing amounts.

    Isn't it a creative control and $$$ issue ? (I'd imagine so, but I am an outsider in this area).

    Sucker Punch isn't first party as far as I know.
