    I heard some people have the demo already and that it is a really good game.

    I was thinking of getting the PS3 bundle when it comes out.
    Either Infamous or the Ratchet and Clank one.

    But I just don't know.
    I have a Blu-ray player and I already have a Wii that we never turn on.

    If Sony were to somehow throw BC back in the PS3 that would probably do it for me -but as it is now I'm not in any hurry to get a PS3.

    You bet your ass I'm getting this game. Preordered at GS so I can get my energy blade freebie. I am also a sucker for Sucker Punch. Now bring on Sly PS3.

    The Demo you are referring to might be from the Best Buy promo that gave you access to the demo on May 8th. Sucks, but I still don't regret the gamestop purchase.. Energy blades sound really awesome. I hope the demo is out Thursday. I know IGN is reviewing it today, but that won't phase me, really. IGN's paycheck isn't only paid by subscribers, but sometimes they surprise me. They rave and rave about a game in previews and then give it like a 2.0 when it comes out.. It's like "Were you playing the same game you were spasming about the week before?" hehe

    Well I was able to obtain the demo, and let me say this game is fun. I got $5 bucks down on it. Pretty long demo to it seems I still haven't finished it. I like it a lot. And add to the fact that the Uncharted 2 multiplayer demo comes with it makes it pure win.

    Yuck, but I respect your choice :D 

    I just thought Prototype lacked the polish of a Sucker Game.

    A PS3 user on the forums was passing out a dummy account with access to his downloaded demo. That's how I got it last night. What's the IGN article say I can't see it at work.

    Quoted from IGN's Review:

    "For me, this is one of the keys to Infamous' greatness. When I played as a hero, I went out of my way to help everyone. I healed the sick, saved guys from being lynched, and was thrilled to see people run over and cheer me. When I played the bad guy route, even I was disturbed by the things Cole did. If you didn't know, there's a set of spark-looking things on your HUD. These are power kegs and represent how much juice you have to do special moves. Your regular lightning bolt doesn't deplete this reservoir, but just about everything else does and you'll need to drain juice from light poles and cars to refill the meter (this will also heal you if you don't want to wait for the regeneration to kick in). Thing is, you can also drain humans of their bio-electrical energy. The boost completely refills your meter, but it kills the person you just drained. When you choose to do this on a downed person -- innocent or foe -- you have to tap Square because the victim is fighting to keep your hand off of his or her face. The camera even changes so that you can watch this battle unfold.

    Have you ever seen a woman's face as she grimaces and desperately tries to save her own life? It's screwed up, man."

    Okay, that cements it. I AM getting this game. Not right when it comes out (between ROTF & Botcon, the last weekend of May is going to be the most expensive weekend of my entire life), but definitely before the end of the year.

    Does anyone have access to the AUS PSN? I wonder if the demo is there.
