Infamous 2 going after Uncharted 2, devs would “be fools” not to

When it comes to cinematic action no game does it quite as well as Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The PS3 exclusive’s influence has been seen across the industry ever since it hit last year. Infamous 2 developer Sucker Punch are just one of the many developers that have been inspired by Nathan Drake’s exploits for their upcoming game.

But Sucker Punch don’t want to just go after Uncharted, they want to beat it. OPM asked lead designer Darren Bridges if their sequel could go toe-to-toe with Naughty Dog’s franchise, to which he replied: “That would be fantastic. It’s a heck of a high bar. That’s a high calling, but we’d be fools to say, ‘Nah, we’re going for ten per cent less.'”

Will Cole and co give us one of the best games of 2011? Next year will tell all.
