To celebrate the release of inFamous 2 in a couple of weeks, Sony has announced a couple of special bundles. The first is the PS3 bundle, which sees the game coupled with a standard 320GB console and DualShock 3 controller.
They will also release two exclusive wireless controller bundles for people on both sides of the moral fence. The “good” side gets the ‘cosmic blue’ controller, while those lacking their moral compass can go for the “evil” bundle which is ‘crimson red’.
There are also various editions of the game. The Special Edition comes with extra digital content, including the Electrocution Grenade power, Golden Amp and the Cole MacGrath skin from the first game. Meanwhile, the Hero Edition is bundled with even more digital content, as well as a figurine of the electrifying hero and a comic from DC Comics, as well as a messenger bag and the soundtrack.
You can check out images of all the editions on Eurogamer. The game is due out in Europe on June 8 and in UK, Germany and Ireland on June 10.
