inFamous releasing earlier than expected, blogger killed in tragic fist-pumping accident

Regardless of whether you’re excited for the release of Sony’s lightning-infused inFamous, you gotta appreciate news of a game getting pushed forward on the calendar.

Previously scheduled to release in June, inFamous will now be filling living rooms with the scent of freshly fried ozone in just over a month’s time, giving it a sizeable head start on Sierra’s similarly superpowered sandbox title, Prototype. Hopefully this doesn’t mean rushing through any of that last minute pixel polishing that separates the good games from the great. We’ll know soon enough. The demo will be available for download on the PlayStation Network on May 21, with the game launching on May 26.
