Remember when we cautiously advised people not to worry about the PlayStation 4 until there were more games on sale for it? How the denim jacket is on the other arm now. A combination of great new year releases, awesome downloadable games, and one or two strategically placed exclusives have made Sony’s latest the console of choice.

And next Friday, there’s one more reason to look at the next-gen beast du jour: inFAMOUS: Second Son launches on Freedom Day, so best you get your preorders in now that you might get to play it on your day off.

Or better yet, enter our exclusive competition below to win not just inFAMOUS: Second Son, but the Collector’s Edition. We’ve teamed up with chums at Ster Kinekor to get hold of this very special edition in which you’ll get a copy of the PS4-exclusive game (obviously), as well as:

  • A case for the game designed to look like the hero’s denim jacket
  • Collectable coin
  • Bottle opener
  • Badges
  • Replica beanie hat
  • Bonus DLC: Cole’s Legacy Legendary Vest. Which your character can wear in-game

Enough loot, in other words, to weigh down even the sprightly young hero of this open-world action game.

Confusingly, Second Son is actually the third game in the inFAMOUS series, and follows on from the storyline of inFAMOUS 2. This time, you’re free running and base jumping your way around Seattle in the sneakers of Delsin Rowe, parkour expert and superhero. Or super-villain, depending on your play style.

You want freedom? You’ve got it: play good or evil, go where you want, how you want. Just do it while wearing the coveted replica beanie.

How can you win this trove of treasure? We want to wrap this one up in time for launch day, so let’s keep it easy. In less than 20 words, complete this sentence using the form below: “If I wake up tomorrow with a superpower, I hope it’s…



The competition closes at 11.59pm 19th March 2014, after which time we’ll pick a winner from our favourite replies. Judges’ decision is final. We can only ship to South African addresses. Winners will be notified within two weeks of that day, and no cash alternatives are available. Employees and their families of Hypertext, Ster Kinekor, Sony and those company’s representatives may not apply. We won’t save your contact details unless you specifically request to be added to our mailing list, and we won’t sell these details on. Only one entry accepted per person.
