    I could not find a thread about this, if there is one, I apologise, and Mods - feel free to merge as appropriate.

    Looks pretty good.

    Just seen a trailer for this on Shacknews. There seems to be a variety of options but I was feeling nauseous watching it given how much was happening on screen at once!

    It's worth watching the trailer as it's all in-game!

    Just seen the '10 reasons' gameplay footage on Gametrailers for this - looks like it could be good fun if you like this sort of thing. Looks more varied than Infamous. Anyone know what sort of age rating this is likely to recieve? As my son liked the look of this.

    This months PSM3 magazine compared Prototype with Infamous and they seemed to suggest Prototype will be the better game in every way except for the area of the game where you can choose to be good or evil.

    i got psw magazine yest, still not had time to sit down and read it, but it reviews prototype and gives it a 9/10 saying offers so many ways to play youll be experimenting for months.
    last paragrpah reads

    now there is another comic-inspired, open-world game on ps3; but prototype and infamous are very different titles. sonys game is a slower blast and aims to combine traditional platforming into a sandbox world while prototype nabs its setup from assassins creed and then ups the scale to apocalyptic proportions. coop would have been a nice touch and there will be familiarity about the new york setting for spiderman fans. still, you wont ever have played a sandbox game that creates so much carnage and offers so many ways to play. or do an impression of the rock while jumping off a beautiful lit skyline

    Anyone know whether there will be a demo of prototype?

    I would imagine a week before it comes out in shops but i don't know. Also i would have thought if they were they should bring it out before inFamous come out as well.
    There are some rumours that there wont be one but id like there to be so i can sample it first hand before renting or buying.

    It looks good for a multiformat game. Has there been any comparisons yet between the 360/PC and PS3 versions, or is it too early?

    I can make some guesses at what they'll say if it helps?

    360
    + better anti-alisaing
    + better controller
    + multiplayer via LIVE much smoother

    - freezes 360, can cause RROD
    - HDD transfer actually makes loads slower
    - lots of 13 year old yanks ranking up, scoreboard is meaningless

    PS3
    + better explosions (more particles)
    + shorter loading times
    + full 7.1 sound

    - worse controller (helped with Gio-Tech triggers)
    - connecting online messy
    - lots of 13 year old yanks ranking up, scoreboard is meaningless

    :thumbsup:

    Have to say this looks more my kind of game than Infamous.

    My perfect superhero game would be GTA4 with a mixture of super endurance, strength, acrobatics and 'Force Unleashed' powers. Infamous demo didn't really feel like an open game as the whole good/evil choice reminds me too much of True crime: Streets of LA's progress killing 'too evil' problem.

    Wouldn't mind if someone (preferably Rockstar) came up with a Super power sandbox game that existed in a world of people with powers (rather than disaster causes powers) and had a feeling of GTA4 mixed with 'The Boys' comic.

    Until this happens i'm happy to give Prototype a good go. :smashin:

    Any shops having trade in deals using infamous?

    Probably be finished with that by the time Prototype rolls around so wouldn't mind picking it up cheap.

    Surprisingly, only PSW (UK) has reviewed the game, giving it an impressive 90%.

    Thats a bit worrying.

    I would have expected quite a few to be out by now even if there was some kind of gta4 style review embargo.

    Havn't ordered this anyway as infamous turned out be much better than i expected.

    I understand there is an embargo on reviews (except a chosen few like PSW) until Thursday. Not normally a good sign but if that's the way Activision want it...

    Official Playstation mag gave it 8/10. Sounds like a pretty solid game, but its similarity to inFamous is going to be a problem for PS3 sales. No Co op or online though.
