PSXE Poll Update: inFamous Most Wanted This Summer
Okay, so it wasn't much of a race, but we did see a few surprises in the overall rankings.
Not surprisingly, your #1 pick for the most anticipated summer release is inFamous, Sucker Punch's high-impact, intense action title that features a main character who can toss around electricity at will. It's almost guaranteed to be a blast and although the competition remains high, most of you seem convinced that inFamous will be well worth your hard-earned buck. Interestingly enough. Batman: Arkham Asylum came in second - a distant second, but still - and that's encouraging. Over the years, gamers have become extraordinarily suspicious of any titles based on movies, or titles based on comic book superheroes. The latter is often hit-or-miss, and Arkham Asylum would normally invoke feelings of skepticism. But it just goes to show that many gamers are very well informed; the game looks fantastic, and you've likely already seen plenty of gameplay footage. Red Faction: Guerilla came in third, and although that's respectable, we don't want any of you to sleep on that game...it may surprise a lot of you.
Anyway, we're moving on to E3, and what Sony's biggest announcement of the show may be. Could it be the long-awaited price drop? Or might it be game-related, like the confirmation of Twisted Metal for the PS3, or the announcement of Gran Turismo 5 for a 2009 launch. Whatever it is, we can't wait to hear about it...we're just wondering what you think it is. So let us now and vote now!
