inFamous 2 in-game powers decided by pre-order locations

Pre-order bonuses based on where you purchased the game are becoming all the more common. When it comes to inFamous 2, your choice of games retailer will grant you one extra in-game power – and we’ve got the videos to prove it.

At this stage, we’ve only been informed of the U.S. retailers, but fingers crossed these deals are repeated around the globe, as they are pretty awesome and we’d hate to miss out based simply on geography!

Pick up the game at Wal-Mart, and you’ll get the Electrocution Grenade.

Amazon customers receive a 24k Gold Amp.

Finally, you’ll get Lightning Hook if you pre-order at GameStop.

We’re also not sure if gamers will be later given the opportunity to pick up the remaining two powers, via DLC or in-game microtransaction.

One thing we do know, however – if you wanted a chance to check out the mission editor tool, you haven’t missed out. The inFamous 2 UGC beta will be extended, once the PlayStation Network is back online, and you’ll get your chance then.

Thanks, CVG.
