Some unlikely developers behind Xbox One's "system sellers"

With all of the excitement behind Xbox One exclusives Quantum Break and Sunset Overdrive, Remedy (Alan Wake, Max Payne) and Insomniac (Fuse, Spyro) have become unlikely major players in the console wars.

These guys make incredibly quirky, idiosyncratic games and I think it's a great sign for the industry that a major corporation is willing to bank on these guys to make games that register with the mainstream public and help sell their console. These titles honestly makes me more interested in the Xbox One than bigger, more traditional AAA games.

Other than Quantum Break and Sunset Overdrive, what other strange games does Microsoft have up its sleeve? I know they locked down Swery65's (Deadly Premonition) new game - anything else on the horizon?

You dont need to label every exclusive that comes out a "system seller".

Imo single games very rarely are "system sellers" its usually a collective of multiple good games.

True.

So, any other titles?

Max Payne was good but Alan Wake was terrible.
You should have listed R&C and Spyro for IG..not Fuse...

XB1 is the worst console of all time

Just admit it, you were too young to play the original Max Payne and haven't actually played it.
Cause AW is just awful.

I loved Max Payne, but Alan Wake was way better in my opinion too. Between Alan Wake's characters (Barry!), the Twin Peaks, Stephen King and Lovecraftian influences and just about everything else, Alan Wake wins for me.
