Here's how this works:

Insomniac owns the rights to the IP and can do what they want with future installments.

Microsoft owns the PUBLISHING rights to Sunset Overdrive 1, they're the ones who's funding its development. Before it can go anywhere else, they need Microsoft's permission first. It sure as hell won't go to PS4.

Whether the sequels are on PS4 depends on if Insomniac can find a different publisher, we'll just have to see about that.


If the first one sells well you can bet your as EA or Activion would be more then willing to publish the game for both X1 and PS4.


EA wouldn't give them enough funding without taking ownership of the IP, and Activision would not let them own their IP at all, remember CODgate?

The game is in the exact same situation as Mass Effect. As are the rest of MS exclusives except Halo,Gears, Forza, Fable and some kinect stuff no one cares about.
If any of them are a success the developers won't have a problem finding a publisher for the sequels, and if they flop there won't be a sequel.

MS was likely planning what they did last gen where they paid for some exclusives early on to get people to buy the 360 and once enough units were sold that the system would have a healthy lifetime they stopped spending the money.

Insomniac are saying there are elements of this game that will not be possible on PS4, which is why it's on X1. They say that the game will use the Cloud processors to do whatever with, so that is why it's an Xbox One exclusive. I doubt this game will ever be on PS4, as much as I'd like to believe otherwise.

Yeah, no one cares about many of these games on this list which is why I see so many requests of Microsoft to bring them back. You are a complete moron.

Exclusives made by 3rd party developers are never exclusive for long. They'll eventually find their way on another console sooner or later.Limbo, ninja gaiden 2, mass effect, castle crashers, braid etc were all published by ms but eventually made their way to other systems. Don't be surprise if sunset overdrive/titanfall hits other systems in the future.

Instead of all the speculation which may or may not happen, why not just buy an Xbox One and ensure that you'll get these great looking games popping up?

Tell me, where are you finding Mass Effect for the PS3 as a stand alone title?
#28lunaticcorePosted 5/12/2014 2:16:19 PM
Nobody here knows what the contract is. It is all guessing games.

Pretty good chance it won't be hitting the other consoles any time soon though.

Does it even matter? at the end of the day you can play mass effect 1 on the ps3. It goes to show you that exclusives made by 3rd party developers will eventually branch out to other systems. Last gen have showed that with many playstation exclusives going to xbox and vice versa.
