Having been on the radar for some time, Sony just couldn't wait until E3 to finally give official word of free-roaming PS3 sequel Infamous 2.
The game, a follow-up to developer Sucker Punch's 2009 hit which has sold close to 2m copies, adorns the cover of the next issue of US games mag Game Informer.
Details are, as you would expect, thin on the ground. Hero Cole MacGrath returns, albeit with a radically overhauled look. The game will be set in a brand new city and features different crooks to the original.
Expect more, you guessed it, at E3 in less than two weeks time.
