Cole Costume For PlayStation Home Unlocked Soon

If you're a PlayStation newsletter subscriber (you should subscribe to our newsletters first, but whatever), you've already seen the announcement that a free Cole costume for your PlayStation Home avatar will be unlocked via the inFamous demo. But a lot of people are asking: when?

Well, PlayStation LifeStyle has noted the rash of questions that hit the PlayStation Home forums and thankfully, Community Manager Locust_Star was able to help out. See, the key is to be patient. Not enough gamers today are patient enough; they're not willing to wait for things to happen, you know?

"Regarding the Cole costume: It will not unlock until after the game is released. It won’t unlock day and date with the release, but likely within a week it will appear in user’s inventories. This delay, of course, is not ideal but I think most people won’t mind being patient as long as they know that it is coming. Any help in spreading that word is appreciated."

So the good news is that the newsletter wasn't lying to you; there really will be a Cole costume for Home. The bad news is you won't be able to snag it today or immediately upon release, so you'll just have to wait and bite your nails or something. We figure you should be happy with the game's launch, anyway; the game is pretty freakin' awesome. Another great PS3 exclusive!  Just remember, if you want access to this, you're going to need to download and play that demo...as if it takes a lot of convincing.

Cool II downloaded and played the demo and didn't even know about the custome lol. I'm going to pick up infamous in another hour or 2. There is no rush wit me on the costume I'm going to be too busy with the game.

Game is really amazing. Played the first couple of story missions and side quests and have to say that Sucker Punch draws you into the game and story quite well. Didn't think the story would be so convincing and interesting but it really is.

The avatar isn't a huge deal to me but it is a great addition to home.

Love the demo, & spent over 5 hours, 2 days in a row each time, trying to cream that tar truck.
I've tried everything so far, running behind, alongside, firing bombs from atop the train tracks & buildings, running thru the park, or the tunnel to get ahead & meet the truck head-on, but either that 3rd white figure, ot the fatty with fiery arms & bombs keeps frying my butt. And I can keep hitting the truck with sticky bombs & it refuses to blow...ARRRG.
I WILL get it figured it out though, LOL

Only 1 thing that pissed me off big-time about the demo though, is that there's no type of game save or auto-save anywhere for "when you actually quit" the game.
Every damned time I had to start back from the very beginning which got fustrating real quick.

I sure hope the full game isn't that same way too.

LOL, I hated that too. I also put tons of hours into the demo alone trying to patiently wait for the game to release. And that truck was a pain but I got that [b word] down in no time, haha.

But no, in the full game you can save anywhere you want, whenever you want, for the most part. However, when you load your saved game, it will 'spawn' you, so to speak, to the nearest medical center/home from where ever you originally saved.

And yes, there is an autosave as well, which saves before and after each mission.

Do you have to leave the demo on your console until the costume is released?

The game is too good, cannot put it down to save my life, if anyone didn't get a beta key for the uncharted 2 multiplayer I have an extra. Haven't spent a whole lot of time with Home.

I think I have 2 vouchers for Uncharted multiplayer beta. 1 beta voucher handed to me at gamestop along with the gigawatt blades voucher, and 1 inside the game case.

I can't use either 1 because of my awesomely sh*tty nat 3 connection. Willing to give both to 1 person in case one is no good.

No strings attached, no future favors asked for.

@ Banky A

Absolutely, just need to figure out how to make sure you get it. Maybe I could post my email address and you could contact me, and I could reply with the code.

Will check back after work, for your input.

Free stuff is always nice, but how about they give us the option of creating our own outfits?

I know they wanna make money selling junk in their stores, but wouldn't you be more willing to pay for an outfit you customized? Then at least you're not paying $1.50 or whatever for something that 100 other people are wearing at the same time. Cause till that happens I'm not spending a cent in Home. lol, maybe not even. But hey, I'm cheap :)

yeah man totally agree. I still think it's silly to pay for some of the items on there, like a footstool or whatever, but then again I'm not into home anymore as much as I used to be..

@ Daedusian,
OK, thanks for the 411.

I was starting to shy away from getting it due to the demo having no save system apon quitting.
But now that you said the full game's got it, I'll be getting it.

Have you guys seen the latest trailer for inFamous, which is now on TV or in theatres as well? You know at the end of the commercial, where the PS3 logo is shown. Well, normally Sony will display the Playstation 3 logo. Do you guys think that the PS3 logo signifies a new logo, and that would be in line with the rumoured PS3 slim where the logo on the rumoured PS3 slim does look like the one at the of the ad.

Sure, first come first serve. There are 2, I believe 1 is for demo beta and 1 may be for BluRay beta. You can have both, but if I post them here you're not gauranteed someone else won't get them and you'd have to race to get them entered.

How do you want to get them, like I suggested above to Banky A or post them?

Anybody who ordered inFamous from Amazon.com didn't get the gigawatt blades. I ordered from Gamestop and they gave me a voucher for them and sent me an e-mail, both sets of codes are different. I entered the e-mail code and it worked, so the voucher is up for grabs.

The voucher says valid 6-2-09 to 9-24-09. It should work immediately since the e-mailed one did.

The code is case sensitive and must be entered just like you see it, the code for gigawatt blades is EGH2-22BP-JAC2

If it doesn't work then someone else beat you to it

Oh WTF so nobody guessed the codes?
So I posted 1st (1st come 1st serve) and Dominicanyo gets both. Dammmmmmmn him.

Ooooh that's irony for you ;)

It's okay though I'm not angry (but I'm pissed off lol, just a little).

But really, it's all good.
