PSN outage extends inFamous 2 beta

"Your outcry has been heard."

Developer Sucker Punch has extended inFamous 2's UGC beta test following the widely-publicised PlayStation Network outage.

A post on the game's Twitter feed read, "We've decided to extend the beta. Once PSN is back up we'll determine by how long, but rest assured: your outcry has been heard."

You can currently still play the beta but you can't upload or download any user-created stages, or access the private beta forums.

Sucker Punch has also stopped handing out any new access codes until PSN is back online.

"Handing out beta codes that you can't redeem is decidedly cruel and unusual - that said, during this time of maintenance, we will suspend all code giveaways and contests," read a post on its official site.

"As soon as PSN is back up and running, though, you can expect to see our contests and giveaways populating our usual outlets. As usual, stay tuned to our Twitter feed, and we'll let you know as soon as the servers come back online."

The sequel to its solid 2009 superhero adventure is due out on PlayStation 3 on 10th June.
