Those who played the inFamous demo and noticed the Sly Cooper 4 reference on the movie marquee should know that it was all in good fun.

According to a report over on PSfocus, the joke was added in by one of the game artists.

“No, no, it was something our artist put in there. They were making a movie marquee and they put in Sly Cooper 4 as a movie title and the other titles are actually names of the artists,” said Sucker Punch’s Bruce Oberg. “I didn’t even know that it was in the game at all.

“Someone posted a screenshot with: ‘Sly 4, Sly 4, they’re making Sly 4’. So, we got a phone call from Sony, what is that Sly 4 stuff? It’s something that our artist put in, it’s good fun, but we haven’t decided it yet. We have to talk with Sony and listen to our fans and see what the right thing to do is next.”

Sucker Punch has been rumored to be working on the stealth-action game since 2007.
