Insomniac's last few games have been mediocre, which makes me temper my expectations a bit. I'm hoping that Sunset Overdrive is a return to form. It does look fun. I just hope they add enough variety to keep the game interesting for more than a few hours.
Perhaps making Sunset Overdrive an Xbox One exclusive was a really smart decision on Insomniac's part? If this were multiplat or even a PS4 exclusive do you really think it would have gotten the attention it has gotten? I have no idea what it is but for some reason being an Xbox exclusive seems to inflate a games worth in the eyes of certain gamers, as if merely being an exclusive to Xbox somehow obliges supporters of the platform to support the game no matter how bad it is? As if the idea that any game exclusive to Xbox One somehow makes the platform worthwhile and not a waste of money is so enticing that it overrides any sense of logic the Xbox One owner has.
