Sucker Punch’s Nate Fox has told Eurogamer readers in a live interview that third-person PS3 action game inFamous is more concerned with being good than being long. This is probably code for, “It’s short,” but there we are.

“Look at God of War – it is an excellent game, an instant classic, and it’s only like seven hours long,” he said. “GTA IV is 30 hours long, and people wanted more? That just tells you how excellent that game is.

“It seems to me that it’s not about length, but about quality,” Fox continued. “And because I love both of those games, I hope that developers never try to shoot for a long game, but instead for the most fun they can pack onto the disc – at any length. That’s what we’re doing for inFamous.”

Game’s out early next year. More through the link.
