A European game release is never late. It arrives precisely when it means to.

I guess the first 20 mins or so of the game was put up on YouTube earlier today, as some people are getting their copies early. It's down now....but what I saw of it looks absolutely amazing. Best graphics of the generation so far, no question.

Until this happens for either platform I will be still disc for major games. I don't live where there's really fast internet so a 20-40+ GB game will take me a long time. STEAM's done this for years so I don't know why both of these new console's shouldn't be able to.

Sony is capable of preloading, but it's unclear why it's not being done. Preloads have been available for a while on European PS3 releases.

I watched the starting 20 minutes. Being stuck in my room makes me too bored to resist.

And wow, the game is pretty amazing. Imagine an open world superhero game, but with the production values of Uncharted 2 & 3.

They do a really good job of setting up the villain a bit better too, within those first 20, you'll learn to really hate the villain.

I'd rather they had a Tuesday launch as that's a better option for me.  Pre-load would help but as the PS4 downloads them automatically, it will be installed before I get home. 

Any links for the video?  haven't been able to find it yet

Here's the first ~20 minutes video:
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1gmwh8_unpopular_fun

Watch at your own peril. Although I rarely consider the first 20 minutes of anything to be a spoiler since it's supposed setup stuff. What's even more mind boggling is that the actual game will look even better running at 1080p/30FPS since the web compression on those videos makes things look worse.

Also, apparently the Cole's Legacy DLC you get for pre-ordering isn't some tiny thing. Instead it's a set of missions lasting a few hours and takes place a good ways into the game.

thanks Turtle for the link and the warning. I really want to see something of the gameplay other than the well published early mission with the neon chick.

you would need to buy something from the looks of it over $.01 as the game comes just under the cutoff.  in my case, I picked up Bit Trip Runner 2 for the Vita.

When they've done these promotions in the past, Sony stated that if you're within a penny, you'll qualify for the offer.  I'd assume the same will hold true in this case.

Dude, seriously? Titanfall is fun, but it's hardly pushing any graphical boundaries, especially on the XBone.

I just hope the gameplay matches the visuals. Pretty particle effects are all well and good, but if the gameplay sucks, who cares.

Having never played any of the previous entries in the series, I don't know much of what to expect other than what I've read. I will say, however, that the 20 minute gameplay video did more to sell me on a PS4 than all the reading I've done on the game so far.

That screenshot is also downsized for this forum, right click on it and open it in a new tab or window to see it full size.

There's a bunch more being posted around the place. I've been sticking to GAF only because they've been good so far at avoiding spoilers. I can grab a few more to post here, spoiler free, if people want.

The gameplay for infamous is a hybrid of third person shooter combined with superpowers and open world traversal with those superpowers. I always thought the shooting aspect wasn't for everyone, but it looks like they've beefed up with melee aspect even more via the traversal skills. They started doing that in Infamous 2 by giving Cole a melee weapon to extend his reach, in ISS they do the same with the chain around Delsin's arm.

I still have the first 20 minutes video downloaded and stored on my computer, I can upload it somewhere for GTers to peruse at full HD. If anyone wants it, let me know.

One of the game's producers did a live play demonstration with some Game Informer editors for one of their Test Chamber videos.  I have not watched it since I'm already sold on the game, but it might give you a better idea of how it plays.

(click to enlarge)

A bit of killzone vibe in this one. Apparently these images are a bit compressed due to facebook image compression, since that's the least complicated way of getting screenshots out of the PS4 right now.

I thought I read that framerate was kept at 30 for this one, so I'm hoping it should be solid. After watching a few more vids and seeing those screenshots, I think I'm sold assuming I can find one in stock.

YK: Yeah, I think the hardest part will be finding a PS4. I saw one yesterday at WalMart, which was only the second time I had seen one in the wild. The thing still flies off the self as soon as it comes in.

The gaming gods were kind today. Walked into Target and they had one PS4 in stock. Gave my wife the puppy dog eyes and she relented after I impressed on her the utter rarity of this event (not really because I've seen them all over the place around here, but she didn't know that).

The Target lady was all excited and there were employees gathered around like I had come in to purchase the Mona Lisa or something. The girl who sold it to me was obviously a gamer because she was geeking out hard. If my wife had not been there I'm pretty sure she would have proposed.

When I told her I didn't want a game she looked shell-shocked. Then I told her I was waiting on Infamous. Her whole face lit up and she gave me the "fellow gamer telepathic gaze of total understanding."

I have a date night tonight so probably won't get to hook it up, but I'm all set for next week!

I just bought my wife an entire new bedroom furniture set and even got one of those down mattress toppers. I just got a PS4 and she didn't say a word. Infamous was the first game I pre-ordered but I'm having a fun time with Killzone.
