If you've been eagerly anticipating the release of inFAMOUS 2, well, you've only got a few more months to wait. Sony announced today that the next chapter in Cole MacGrath's story will be released exclusively on the PlayStation 3 on June 7. And if you're a true fan of the series, you might be interested in the inFAMOUS 2 HERO Edition, which is retailing for $99.99. It's actually a pretty nice package for a collector's edition, containing an 8.5" Cole MacGrath statue, a sling pack just like Cole's, the inFAMOUS #1 mini-comic from DC Comics, and a voucher code for a collection of in-game content including a skin, a weapon, and two powers as well as the official game soundtrack.
If you're not interested in the collector's edition, you can also get your hands on some of the bonus material, depending on where you pre-order the game. Those who buy from Amazon.com will get a 24K gold amp in-game weapon. Pre-ordering from Best Buy will net you a Kessler skin so you can play as Cole's super-powered nemesis from the first game. GameStop's pre-order bonus will be the special Lightning Hook power that lets you snag and pull enemies and objects towards Cole, just like Scorpion in Mortal Kombat. And if you put down a deposit at Walmart, you'll get the Electrocution Grenade that ties down your enemies with arcs of electricity before going kablooey. And although they didn't name specific retailers, "participating" ones will also be offering the official soundtrack as a bonus download.
