    Insomniac Explains Sunset Overdrive's Xbox One Exclusivity

    http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/a....aspx#comments
    The game looks awesome and will do well on Xbox One? I hope they're not getting flack over this.

    Shortly after the announcement of Sunset Overdrive during Microsoft's E3 press conference, Insomniac's CEO Ted Price posted a message on the company's website offering a few more details about the game, and why it's exclusive to Xbox One.

    The trailer showcased a parkour runner taking on mutants in what appeared to be an abandoned city. The game's official description reads, "With an arsenal of kick-a**, overpowered weapons and a knack for traversing the city with hyper agility, its not the end of days for you. Your story is just beginning. Here is Price's reasoning for making the game an Xbox One exclusive:

    "It may surprise some of our longtime fans that we have partnered with Microsoft Studios to develop Sunset Overdrive exclusively for Xbox One. When we first began discussing this idea with Microsoft, we were initially hesitant to shift back into an exclusive arrangement. But as the Microsoft team began introducing us to the abilities and philosophies driving the development of Xbox One, we knew that Sunset Overdrive was a perfect fit. The Xbox One and Xbox Live will support our ambitions to create an ongoing two-way dialogue with our community. It will also allow us to have quicker production cycles, enabling timely content updates for new weapons, characters, storylines and even pop culture-relevant content like memes based on social commentary."

    uuummmmm...Fried Beer iis a reality.

    Saw this before on G+. I'm not knocking them for it, but to say that it's anything other than money (because the "reasons" he gave are no different to what he'd get on the PS4) is laughable.

    But like I said, if they want to go exclusive, they'll get no bones from me.

    Just don't try to insult our intelligence.

    Never thought I would see Insomniac and MS come together on a exclusive title. Does this mean they are done with sony? Times are changing. I'm looking forward to their new game though. Xbox-one has a strong line up so far.

    Kinect aside, I don't really see anything the MS and the XB1 can do that Sony and the PS4 can't.

    Well I guess MS can write a bigger check...

    And your point is? What are we 13 year olds now?...lol We know MS has money and don't act like this is something new to the industry. Maybe Insomniac wanted this too.

    Na they are still working with Sony. Ted Price said as much post-E3 ign show

    Game looks kinda cool but my expectations are low considering their lacklustre showing this gen, imo.

    Your reason for the insult? Thanks. How old are you o_O?

    My point being is that they make it sound like the game is exclusive because they can do something on the XB1 that they can't do on the PS4. Which is...?

    If they want to make multiplat and/or games for another system, so be it. I don't really care honestly. Just say thats what you wanted to do and leave it at that. I don't fault them for wanting to branch out and learn new thing.

    I would hardly call that an insult, but if you took it that way, then I apologize. No one was comparing the abilities of the consoles so i don't understand why you found it necessary to go there. This game being exclusive is just business as usual. It's not the first and won't be the last deal made. No need to get all sensitive over this stuff.

    We'll see how well this sells...my honest guess is that it will flop. Just hope it doesn't break them financially to the point where they can no longer make games.


    I don't really need a water cooler/remote control as of right now.

    Asking a 32 year old man if he's a 13yo kid is an insult, but apology accepted none the less.

    He may not be comparing systems but sure sounds like he's saying things are different over at MS. Anyways, the grass is always greener on the other side right?

    The game itself looks interesting on the concept alone. Have to see gameplay tho. They already stated that they are still continuing to work with Sony. They are just taking advantage of their 3rd party studio right. Them making an XB1 game isn't whats surprising to me. Making an XB1 only game is what surprises me about it. I thought they wanted to stop doing exclusives and do multiplatform titles...

    Like I said, it's money. Every other excuse is just that - PR BS and excuses. And Sony won'y be ponying it up unless it's to their first party stuff so Insomniac may as well go to a team that has the salary cap space.

    Many of you may be asking what this news means for Insomniac. What about Ratchet & Clank? What about Fuse? Others may ask why we have “abandoned” our PlayStation heritage. The truth is, not a lot has changed. Insomniac has been, is, and will continue to be 100% independent. We have treasured that independence for the last 19 years. It now allows us to own and control our IP, and find the most suitable partners to make those IP a reality. While we are excited about partnering with Microsoft on Sunset Overdrive, that doesn’t mean we can’t or wouldn’t make games with our longtime friends at Sony. That’s the magic of being an independent developer.
    Get to work on that new ratchet titles since you are still good with Sony, Ted. That's the only thing I care about from insomniac.

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    Lets face it R&C is the only good thing they have done in the last 7 years. Sony should get them doing another kids game though instead of R&C

    Oh and make sure it's the good Ratchet titles too. None of this All4One and QFroce crap.

    Bring back Future ToD and ACiT quality titles.

    I think we can assume that Incomniac has been let out of the usual MS payments for updates, the kind of frequent small updating they are talking about would cost a fortune under MS's $10,000 an update minimum. And likely gotten a hefty development fund out of it. But they all have to talk the marketing talk.

    This is almost a goofy as Zampella talking about how the cloud magically makes Titan Fall only possible on the Xbone, until he starts talking about bringing it to other platforms...in the same interview.

    How independent could you possibly even say they were for the majority of their existence?

    For many years, Sony published their stuff, meaning Sony OWNS their most well known IPs. So that directly contradicts his statement of owning their IPs. Insomniac has only recently become truly independent, and even then that's a questionable tag line for them as they did not self-publish Fuse, even if they may have worked out an arrangement with EA to keep hold of that franchise.

    If they are still working on titles for PS4 which are going to be exclusive, then what is wrong with them working on titles for the Xbox One that are exclusive?

    The only thing that wouldn't make sense is if Microsoft owns the Sunset Overdrive IP after they are done with it; because that was their reason for moving away from Resistance/R&C.

    If they own Sunset Overdrive, it will make it's way to the PS4....and even if it doesn't, at least they own it to do with what they want. If Microsoft owns it, they pretty much went back on their word.

    They pretty much went back to doing what they were with Sony under a different publisher. It didn't work out under EA so now they are under Microsoft.

    Ted 'has a price' Price did it for money. I don't blame him, kinda poor business decision if you look at the state of Xbox, but this deal was probably signed a while ago.

    I can give you a number of reasons and this is coming from a Resistance fan.

    -Underwhelming story
    -Bad color pallet
    -Important questions unanswered
    -Cheap ending
    -Poor multiplayer that needed a ton of updates

    The concept for, Sunset does fit their style of games. Hopefully for them, it will turn out to be a good game.

    People wanted MS to bring new IPs, so now they are coming. No one expected this one from Insomniac but i won't complain. Just make the game good.

    It's a pity because I probably would've bought this on the PS4, but I wouldn't buy an X1 to play it.
