That definitely didn’t take long at all as we have learned that the inFAMOUS 2 (full game) is now available on PSN. If you are a PlayStation Plus member, you can play up to 60 minutes of the full game for free as a trial and even earn in-game Trophies (Trophies will be realized after purchasing the full game). The cost for the game will be $59.99. This is my only problem with how Sony does this. I think its great that you can get the full game via download so soon after the game’s actual release, my problem is that they want you to pay the full retail price for it. The digital version doesn’t have any of the overhead that the physical version does so there is really no way that they should cost the same, I mean the price difference might not be much but there should be some difference. I think $39.99 would be the perfect price point here that might get some people to bite. You have to think of the economics of it all, if you pay $59.99 for a brand new copy of the physical version and you get tired of it there are a lot of ways that you can recoup at least some of that cost through selling or trading it. With the digital version you are just kind of stuck and if that is the case then Sony should account for that loss in flexibility by making it cheaper to acquire.
If you didn’t get a chance to play the first inFAMOUS, you can now also download the original inFAMOUS game for free on PSN as part of the “Welcome Back” program. Check out our spoiler-free reviews of the original inFAMOUS and inFAMOUS 2.
