In 2009, Sucker Punch Productions released Infamous, a super-powered sandbox game that was a drastic departure from the studio's well-known Sly Cooper franchise. Venturing into new territory paid off for Sucker Punch; the PS3-exclusive Infamous has sold nearly 2 million copies, providing a combination of mobility and electrical powers that makes gamers feel like a true superhero. For Infamous 2, the team hopes to raise the bar even higher. A new look for hero Cole MacGrath is just the first step; a new city, new powers, and a powerful new foe await you in Infamous 2, and you can read all about it our exclusive 10-page story. And here's the full wrap-around image:

Stay tuned for our Infamous 2 hub, which will be your one stop shop for our month long, online coverage of Infamous 2.

If you think about the story
Spoiler
, it makes some sense that Cole may start to look different. Im curious if this means the change in voice actors may have been a concious decision, to capture the changing character.

Aw man. I liked Cole's voice and look in the first game. Damn. I highly doubt it but it would be awesome if you use your Infamous 1 save game to give you powers and reputation earned from the first game. It would be awesome to start as a villain.

I liked the first one but I'm not digging Cole's new look. Hopefully they will fix the enemies accuracy.

Awesome. I absolutely LOVED the first game, so this is great news for me.

I'm disappointed that they won't be bringing back the voice actor. For some reason the original voice made Cole sound like an average American loveable slob.

I really like Cole's old look better. Although, we know for sure their will be a new voice actor. Maybe it's actually Cole's son.

I completely and utterly agree. I loved the first game for about two hours, then it was just haaaaaaate.

Does anyone else thing he looks kind of like Desmond Miles on the cover?

For real. That alone makes this franchise milking a big pass for me.

The fact that I could hate the characters, writing, acting and story as much as I did in Infamous 1 yet still replay it immediately after beating it is a testament to how awesome the gameplay was. I'm happy they changed Cole's look. He looked like a moody prick in the first one IMO.

The main improvement that I'd like for this game is that I think they should let you know how many shards you have left to find in each area... at least that will give people a chance to find those 1 or 2 last shards... assuming that you have to find shards again. Right now I have about 1 or 2 shards left and I've searched the entire city about 2-3 times and I cannot find those shards I've walked all around, hitting L3 and there's been no luck whatsoever. If I could find those 1 or 2 shards I'd have a platinum in this game... oh well.

I loved the first InFAMOUS. But I absolutely hated EVERY SINGLE character. They could not make one likable character for the life of them... I hope they destroy all of them and moved on.

I just hope he lost his spide...uhh super sticky grab ability, that's the one thing that seriously bugged me about the game, you were trying to jump and he'd grab onto anything other than where you where trying to get to.

sucker punch better do sly cooper 4 after this...


So you want them to have a low selling, unprofitable game then.

(This is no slam against the games themselves, just stating a fact, regardless if they all went GH, they weren't as highly lauded as inFamous is, plus I think they want to move away from the kiddie image that the game drips with)

And when compared to Ratchet & Clank and Jak & Daxter series of games they always were 3rd in popularity, not something Sony or Sucker Punch is interested in going back too.

That's preposterous, why did the change the way Cole looks?


That's the first thing I thought, his black and yellow/red look was a defining thing about him, and made him stand out, it would be better if they let you change your look throughout the game.

I just got my copy and there are scans of gameplay, so maybe it's going to come out sooner than later. Some points of interest:

Sounds good to me... though in the concept art, Cole doesn't really look like Cole.
