It looks like inFamous: Second Son is shaping up to be a pretty decent launch window title for the PlayStation 4, but voice actor Troy Baker recently shared an interesting tidbit that no one seems to be talking about. According to Baker, all of the people you see walking around in the city in the game are actual people who live in Seattle in real life. Apparently numerous people were scanned and put into the game, so the Seattle featured in the game would feel even more like the real thing.
FACT: All of the "pedestrians" populating Seattle in #SecondSon are actual Seattleites whose likenesses were scanned and put in the game.

It’s interesting to see this much detail put into the game, though that can certainly backfire on developers if expectations aren’t met. Consider the trailers shown for Forza 5 at E3 and the crowds you see in the stands versus the actual product and you’ll see what I mean. Overall, the pedestrians in the city have to have a little more substance, so while we’re not talking L.A. Noire levels of facial animation, we’re hoping for more than the current Forza 5 crowds.
