‘inFamous 2′ Hero Edition & Release Date Leaked by Amazon

inFamous 2 Hero Edition Details

Back in the summer of 2009, Sucker Punch Production released a game known as inFamous for the PlayStation 3. The game was a unique combination of the sandbox-style of gaming most commonly associated with the Grand Theft Auto series, along with superpowers and a morality system, which helped it to stand on its own and become one of the chief titles for the PS3. It was soon announced that a sequel to the game was on the way, expected to arrive sometime this year.

Amazon.com may have accidentally released a very important bit of information about inFamous 2 today, namely the existence of a special edition of the game. The title appeared on the website, listed as the Hero Edition, and priced at $99.99. It has since been taken down, but not before word was leaked out in regards to just what this Hero Edition is.

The description listed the package containing not only the game in question, but also a statue of the main character, Cole MacGrath, a replica sling pack, a super voucher that listed various in-game bonuses (named the Lightning Hook Power, Electrocution Grenade Power, Kessler Skin, and 24K Gold Amp Weapon Variant), a mini issue of the inFamous comic book by DC Comics, and the Official inFamous 2 Soundtrack.

While all those goodies might be enough to warrant attention, perhaps more important is that Amazon listed the game as having a release date of May 24, 2011. No official information about the game’s release date has been released by Sony, which might explain in part why the listing was taken down so soon after its appearance. Though it could be just an error on Amazon’s part, it could also mean that the game may be arriving in time for the second anniversary of the original inFamous.

What do you think? Does this mean that the game is on its way within a few months? Or could it be earlier, if this is just for the Hero Edition? Speaking of which, would you be willing to spend close to $100 dollars for a few extras to go along with your game?

inFamous 2 is due sometime 2011, exclusively for the PlayStation 3.

    I liked the first one a lot, so I may have to check out this one.
    Sony has really been going all out with their special editions lately!

    I think that the game should be close to that time frame, because we know that the DC comic mini series’ first issue is in march sometime, and if an issue is released every two weeks that would put it very close to that may 24 release date. Also from what I’ve heard, the subway codes for the infamous DLC is only active between 5/10/2011 and 6/31/2011. So, the game would have to be out sometime between then.

    In terms of what we know about Sony’s other 2011 games, a May release seems to make a lot of sense for inFamous 2. But we’re getting awfully close to that date for them not to have announced anything…

    I cant wait for this game to come out but I dont think I’d pay $100 just for a few extra things
