Some Sunset Overdrive news

First off, Insomniac likes what it's seen of the new Kinect, but has yet to decide how it will be used in Sunset Overdrive. "I wouldn't worry too much about it," Salvitti told one anxious community member. "Kinect 2.0 has some awesome new features that could really enhance the experience. It is also far and away better than Kinect 1.0. That being said, we have not determined how Kinect will be involved in Sunset yet."

There's a very strong possibility that Sunset Overdrive will only be on X1....or at the very least, will be a timed exclusive. They're not planning for it to be on PS4, but who knows what will happen.

I'm actually pretty excited to see more of this game. I really think insomniac is one of the most talented studios out there (R&C games have all been wonderful).

Also wanted to link something from that same news source:

http://www.oxm.co.uk/57495/xbox-one-exclusive-sunset-overdrive-isnt-always-online-but-cloud-has-pretty-large-potential/

"It is proven that cloud services can improve products and services in other areas, so it's cool that games are starting to take advantage of it. Looking at the world's approach to this now-massive amount of hardware we have that can be taken advantage of, these are things are going to change faster and faster. Not just for games, but for every industry. It's ultimately good for all of us who consume entertainment."

As more and more devs start talking about potential of cloud services to supplement gaming experiences I hope we see a drop in the "Powa of da Cloudz is PR marketing BS" topics in these boards.

I was initially excited for this game for 3 reasons. It's Imsomniac, who is responsible for the Ratchet and Clank series (I LOVE that series), cloud will enable changing environments pretty often (they say daily), and I can play it with my friends. Looks like a win-win-win.

Yay. Another creative looking shooter that will inevitably end up as mediocre at best, just like Fuse.

I do wonder how quickly the love from Microsoft will disappear when Sunset Overdrive fails to light up the review and sales charts.

Fuse is terrible on both consoles. Bad games are bad, regardless of platform.

I look forward to more tangible information. Hopefully, Kinect functionality actually enhances the experiences as opposed to being wedged in for the sake of using the peripheral.

The Ratchet and Clank games were good but their Resistance games were straight up garbage. So in conclusion I don't know how I should feel about Insomniac. I hope Sunset Overdrive does good but I wouldn't be surprised either if it flops.

Exactly. I wouldn't be surprised if this game was adored even before it came out, if it was multiplat. Like I've said before, I CAN'T WAIT for the sony gamers adoration of Titanfall when it goes to PS4. You know it's coming! Everybody who played it loves it...from what I've read.
