Earlier today, Sony posted a new video on their youtube page called “The Reload”. No other information was given about it and boy are the rumours flying. Right now the majority of comments on the youtube page are suggesting a follow up to major franchise Infamous with a Infamous 3 announcement possibly to happen on October 23rd.
The video (seen below), shows a woman, sitting at a desk cleaning a handgun, when all of a sudden the power goes out and she looks at the camera. Footsteps can be heard as the camera gets closer to the woman and sounds of electricity sparking can clearly be heard. The video ends with the date October 23rd.
Now this could be one of many things. We know that the newly revamped Playstation Store will hit the US and Canada on October 23rd, so we’re wondering if this could be what this teaser is all about. The lights going dark (possibly on the old playstation store) to be restored with the new one?
Alternatively Sony could be trying to amp up the excitement of launching the new Playstation Store by announcing something huge like a 3rd Infamous. If you’ve beaten the game as either good or bad Cole you must know there is potential for a follow up sequel, but with the 2 endings being so drastically different, Sony would have to choose which ending to build off of.
The only other thing we have to go off of is the fact that the very same character was in Sony’s original Michael Long Live Play commercial before. (check the 27 second mark). This could mean one of a few things. That they are continuing the Long Live Play ad campaign and maybe adding new characters like the Playstation AllStars Battle Royale?
We’ve included the new video and the previous below and you can see the same character (same costume and what looks to be the same booth) at the 27 second mark, so drop us a comment and let us know what you think and be sure to stay tuned to eTechTour for all the updates surrounding this mystery!
Also we’ve embedded a poll so you can leave a quick feedback as to what you think this could be relating too!
