Click to read the inFamous comic.
Sucker Punch's superpower game has sold 1.2 million copies, according to a recent update by the PlayStation.Blog
. According to Sony's rules
, that's enough to make the game a certifiable "Greatest Hits" title. However, a game can't don the ugly budget box art until ten months after the game's original ship date.
Until then, inFamous
will get an almost-Greatest Hits price for its almost-Greatest Hits status: $39.99, effective immediately. Also, the former GameStop-exclusive power-up Gigawatt Blades
will be available for all as a free PSN download, starting December 10 -- a nice freebie for latecomers to the game.
Considering Black Friday has already passed, it seems like Sony may have missed the best opportunity to announce a price drop on inFamous
. Of course, there might be another motive behind this move: to keep this game on the mind of video game editors (and fans) readying their GOTY lists.
