What's Second Son's Secret Power? Give Us Your Best Guess

inFamous: Second Son is a week and a half away, and yet, we still don't know about all the available powers in the game.

Developer Sucker Punch has done a tremendous job keeping 'em secret. Are we only missing one or are their multiple powers with which we're unfamiliar?

Well, at least one is described as "absolutely mind-boggling" and that's the one that's getting plenty of attention.

All the more so because inFamous Brand Development Director Ken Schramm says it's "something almost everyone uses every day." This is what he told DualShockers, but he wouldn't drop any other hints. Any idea what he might be talking about? Is he talking about a base skill, such as vision (and we'll have super enhanced vision in the game, or something), or is he referring to some sort of technological wizardry?

Go ahead, give us your best guess!

That's the kind of fun thing I like to speculate on. Hmmm "almost everyone"? Almost everyone uses what that's not electricity every day?

Internet powers!

Oh yes, because shooting sperm from your hands would be such a great idea... Delsin Rowe and the power of impregnation!

LOL. Nobody said you had to taste the power.

I was only kidding and was unsure whether or not I should post that. If it's offensive to you or other people, hopefully Ben will remove it.

Haha, Tes you definitely didn't offend me. It's pretty much impossible to offend me.

If Ben removes the comment I'm going to whine.

There has to be more than one other power. If not, I'm going to be very disappointed./

That being said, I have no idea what those other powers could be. Paper keeps running through my mind, but how would that work? Maybe he has the power to manipulate people en masse. "Introducing Delsin Rowe and his superpower of PROPAGANDA!" Hmm, maybe not...

How did we end up with the same time on our post? I must've been 1 nano second faster on the submit button.

Okay Alex, I'll take "What's the secret inFamous power" for $1000.

:O You're from the future and your power is to telescope time that you can post your comment one one-hundredth of a second faster than me. Also, you hint without saying specifically that Delsin's other power is to manipulate time...
That would actually be a really cool power. Slow it down, stop it, speed it up and decompose an enemy with a concentrated blast. Me likey that idea.

Glad to have accidentally helped inspire your thoughts on the power to manipulate time. That could be pretty cool if handled properly.

There be many powers, Sucker Punch calls Delsin "MegaMan" as in he sucks up the powers of bosses.

id go with water, something i spoke to the lead game designer when i had the chance to visit playstation AU headquarters just before infamous 2 came out.
obviously it couldnt be a power for cole, but he said its a power they really wanted to use for someone different.
i was wondering what that was hinting to at the time, maybe now i know.
whatever it is i hope its something that has a braud area of effect and can stun multiple enemies.
1 and 2 were great games but when you got into the bigger battles you really were fat out of luck if you did not have any super powers like the tornado or the raining lightning from the sky.
all the normal powers were very area specific, very one man focused, doing ultimate damage on one person, instead of dealing less damage but to a broader audience.

Well from what I have seen with the smoke and fire abilities to travel up vents it could very well be he uses electrical powers to travel alone electrical lines or circuits as well as electrify items.

Heck maybe he can use cellphones to travel from point to point. Now that sound a bit dump but who knows. Maybe at least travel from public phones but do we even have those around anymore.

LOL. Maybe there is a water ability and he can use sewers to take out parked vehicles or use fire hydrants to spurt up on high above people.


Glad they are keeping much of the game secret for people. Lets hope it has plenty of surprises for a already great franchise.

Keep playing!

I would like to see Delsin use metal/steel for a power. He could get metal from anything on the streets. When he takes enough of the metal from lets say a building, the building would then start collapse and you would have to get out of the way.

Or you could absorb metal from a car during a chase causing the car to fall apart.

If he is being attacked by overwhelming odds he could materialize a metal wall or even a metal sword and shield thick enough to with stand bullets. He can then infuse smoke, ice, fire or electricity to the sword for extra damage in melee fights. Also, instead of a shield he could change his whole body into metal like Colossus.

Another cool idea would be to build a motorcycle out of metal and use his smoke powers in tandem to power it. He could drive around leaving black smoke with a fire trail like Ghost Rider!!!
