A while back we brought you news about the inFamous 2 Hero Edition, which featured several exclusive powers along with Cole’s signature messenger bag. Those who don’t have the money to shell out for the Hero Edition can still get in on the fun, because now those exclusives will be available for pre-order from separate retailers.
Amazon, Wal-Mart and GameStop will each have their exclusive inFamous 2 power and they’re hoping that these signature moves will push extra units come launch time.
Amazon will be offering the 24K Gold Amp weapon, and Wal-Mart will have the Electrocution Grenades. Finally, GameStop will be handing out the Lightning Hook as their pre-order bonus. Along with the news comes a few videos of these powers in action to assist in the decision making process.
First up we have the 24K Gold Amp from Amazon. We don’t have any other details other than the fact that its gold, so whether the device is more powerful than the standard amp, or if the change is merely cosmetic is unknown. While gold is pretty to look at, many might pass up pre-ordering with Amazon for some of the more functional powers. Maybe this new amp gives Cole flashier moves? Check out the video:
Next up we have the Electrocution Grenades from Wal-Mart. Unlike normal grenades, these electrocute enemies while holding them in place, ensuring they’re in the blast radius when it explodes. Check out the Electrocution Grenades below:
Last we have the Lightning Hook from GameStop, a personal favorite not only for bringing the enemies to you, but the weapon is also reminiscent of an old PSOne title Wild 9:
The first inFamous featured pre-orders tailored to the good and evil sides of Cole, but this time it seems Sucker Punch decided to go with abilities that everyone can utilize without going down a particular path.
Gamers can get all of these powers in one package if they order the Hero Edition. Though for those who are just interested in the game they can still get a special ability for pre-ordering.
Which power are you most interested in? Do unique weapons really have an impact on what retailer you purchase your games from? Regardless of which bonus people go with, PS3 owners will have some awesome abilities to play with this summer.
inFamous 2 takes Cole’s powers to the next level when it launches exclusively for the PS3 on June 7th.
