Straight outta CES, Sony's offering two videos of its open-world shock-em-up, inFamous
. On display here: open-world gameplay, various lightning attacks, and some grating sound effects (bzzt bzzt bzzt!

Sucker Punch's inFamous
in July 2007 at E3, just one month before Sierra (now Activision
) took the wraps off
of Radical's Prototype
, an exceedingly similar concept. It's like when two movie studios, operating totally independently, plan big-budget movies about asteroids colliding with Earth. Just replace "asteroids" with "super-powered dudes" and replace "Earth" with "Empire City" and "New York City" respectively. Just like it.
